My rejected rook.

I recently decided that it was time to get a new ear piercing and initially thought of the "snug" piercing, but my local piercers couldn't pierce that as they didn't use curved barbells, so I thought of the next piercing I wanted; a Rook piercing. I went down to piercers knowing that it would cost me £20 for this piercing and done the usual signing of the form before I was directed to the chair. I have a usual piercer who has pierced 6 of my other piercing's so he new not to give me the talk about aftercare. He ... read more

My New Rook

I just want to start out my story by saying that I've always wanted piercings and tattoos since I met my biker uncle. He has all of these awesome tattoos all over and I think he's just the most awesome guy ever. He was my inspiration for entering the body mod world. I just love the way they look. Anyways, I already have 3 lobes on each ear and 2 helixes on my right ear. I also have a tongue piercing that I got on a whim when my friend decided she wanted to get her tongue pierced and wanted ... read more

My lovely little tragus.

Today I turned 16. This morning I took my learners permit test, (100%, high fives for me) handed in school work (MUCH overdue I might add,) took my doggie for a long walk, and ultimately completed a whole lot of things I've been meaning to, but haven't found the time to do. All of these things are irrelevant however; as the most exiting thing I did today was get my tragus pierced. A brief piercing history, my ears are pierced 7 times (now) all over the shop, couple up the top, double lobes, my navel is pierced, and I've retired ... read more

My Journey to 1/2" !

In October of 2008, I headed downtown one day with a friend to get my septum pierced. While there, before paying for my fresh piercing, I noticed each employee had stretched earlobes. I had seen and heard of this before, but never until then had I been so attracted to the idea. When I got home, I did some e-research on the concept of stretching earlobes ad became quite stretch-savvy on the matter. I figured if I stretched my first set of holes, I could always use my second and third sets for regular earrings. Still, I was a bit ... read more

My tiny stretching experience

I've always wanted to have modestly stretched ears. My ears have been pierced since I was eleven, done at Claire's. I had them pierced with a piercing gun, which isn't the best method. Luckily, it was uncomplicated and I had no scar tissue. So, back seven or eight months ago, I attempted to dead stretch from an 18ga to 14ga, using some stainless steel circular barbells I'd borrowed from my best friend. Not a good idea. I tried for weeks, and my ears just became inflamed, swollen and lumpy. Fast forward to a month or two ago, my best friend ... read more

5/8" to 7/8" Lobe Scalpelling - Not too bad!

BACK STORY: My goal has been to reach 1" lobes for awhile now. I'm sure this is how most of these stories start out. Anyway, I started stretching my lobes in grade 9 or so but never really planned to go large until around three years ago. That's when I knew I wanted to reach at least 1" and get that certain shape of the ear I love so much. When the side starts to round out away from the normal curve of the ear. So lovely. My ears made it to 3/4" with some abuse along the way but ... read more

First (and second) cartilage...and more to come...

Ok, so I am one of those girls who got her ears pierced at the mall when she was seven, and then as she got older started neglecting to wear earrings in them. Yeah, I know. What's the point in having them if you're never going to wear earrings? Anyways, I moved to a new school my freshman year of high school and started seeing a bunch of girls with their ears pierced and my best friend (a huge influence in who I am today) who had three lobes in each ear and a cartilage in one. For holidays and ... read more

Stretching Earlobes to � (19mm)

I began the ear lobe stretching process roughly 2 years ago when I was 15 years old. I was inspired by a sense of difference and acceptance to get my ears pierced and stretched when I was younger, and to my surprise my mother took me to get my ears pierced even though she hates the look of stretched ear lobes. I waited the suggested 6 weeks before changing out the jewelry, and as soon as the wait was over I bought a pair of 12g tapers. Over the course of a week I worked the 12g tapers into my ... read more

Spontaneous industrial

*May 2009* Almost everything that I do is completely spontaneous, and my decision to get an industrial was no different. I had been looking up interesting non-facial piercings (no facial piercings were allowed at my job at the time) and came across the industrial. I immediately loved it and decided to get one. I had only 4 (total)lobe piercings and a navel piercing at the time. I'd been wanting an eyebrow piercing FOREVER (and I still want one!), but like I said, my job would not allow me to have one, which is really unfortunate :] One of my best ... read more

My Stretching Experience

So I decided to get my ears pierced because it was something I had wanted for a long time, i didn't want to spend money to get it done so I had my brother do it, he has had a ton of experience piercing various parts on his friends so I trusted him he pierced my ear and I was surprised that there was no pain during the process at all except for the soreness afterward. I experimented with different types of earrings for a while and then I discovered that people can stretch their ears and its a relatively ... read more
