My amazing industrial

I got my Industrial Piercing on October 3rd, 2009. I went to Planet Ink in Downtown Ottawa. They welcomed me into the shop, it was extremely clean. Because I'm only 14 another place wouldn't give me this piercing. So I went and filled out the papers, and bought H2Ocean, a cleaning product for the aftercare, I recommend this to every and any one. It was only 15 dollars for me. After I finished filling in everything and paid for the piercing and aftercare I was introduced to my piercer, Juliette. She herself had a few piercings and tattoos but seemed ... 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

Traig-ass.

My desire to have a tragus piercing had been bugging me for quite a while. As with every piercing I have had, I like to think about it for a while, wince and squirm at the thought of the impending pain, then finally, get it done on a whim. And that's exactly what had happened when I decided to get a tragus piercing. One day my boyfriend and I were in the city, doing some shopping and getting a bite to eat, generally having a good time. The whole day I was toying with the idea of getting a new ... read more

He cut me.

It took me a lot of thought and consideration to decide that I would like to have my earlobe piercings scalpelled to a larger gauge. I now understand that scalpelling lobes to a higher gauge is something many people in our body modification community find difficult to tolerate, but as usual, I choose the way I carry things out. I have been stretching my lobe holes on & off for a number of years, with down-sizing in between, to build up the tissue & keep them nice & elastic, plenty of oil massages & love, even some swearing, begging & ... read more

The saga of a conch

I graduated in the summer from uni and decided to reward myself with a piercing ( I did this for my GCSE's – upper helix and A levels – Tongue) and after four years worth of study it was time for another one, so I decided to get my conch done as it was the next piercing I wanted to add to the collection. Nice and early on a Saturday morning I headed down to the studio because most people aren't out of their beds then and there's much less of a wait time for just coming in of the ... read more

Fate was good to me - Double conch at last!

My first piercing happened at the age of 11 -- my mom pierced my ears with an at-home piercing kit. I had always told myself that I would never go crazy and get anything else done. Then a year ago I started with getting my lip pierced on the right side, and the piercing bug definitely bit. The lip, three cartilage, another set of lobes, and the tongue all got pierced within one year, but those are all other stories. I had planned on getting an orbital on my upper right ear and then a helix half-way up on the ... read more

Story of a failed cartilage piercing

I was at the point in my life where I had just left home and wanted to do something that I would not normally have been allowed to have done if I had still lived at home. I decided to get my cartilage pierced after just having second holes in my ears. A lot of girls at university had them and I liked the way that they looked. I chose to have the piercing at a clothing store that also does professional body piercing. I had heard a lot of good things about them so knew it was the place ... read more

DIY Lobe (Anti-Slip piercing)

My Second DIY Experience (on ME this time!) I say second DIY experience, though technically didn't do this COMPLETELY by myself... So it's been a few months since my last piercing, a Christina done three months ago just before my Graduation. I'm looking in the mirror admiring my recent stretching success and missing my recently departed transverse lobes and I think, cant I have something to replace them? Now Ive got pretty fleshy lobes as it is but I've decided I don't want to stretch my bottom or second holes anymore than I already have. I notice that there's quite ... read more

Pierced.

I know I don't need to explain to anyone on here about how much I've always loved the look of piercings. I wouldn't say I have any truly outrageous piercings (I have to keep it restricted to places like my ears and other areas that I can cover up as I work in a conservative office and facial piercings of any kind would most likely get me fired.) Because of this, I have stuck to decorating my ears with piercings. Back in February I had my industrial done. I knew I would want to then try and balance my ears ... read more

Conch experience 101

So this all begins in a drama class in first year of university, when I saw this guy with a crazy piercing. The ring he had in went all the way around his ear and through the middle, hard cartilage, part of the ear. I thought to myself, "how cool is that?" However, I never ended up getting it done. Fast forward to the third year. I had become obsessed with the piercing again, but this time I was definitely getting it done. I discussed it with my friend, who thought it would look good, and I decided to head ... read more
