My reasoning behind getting my industrial...

I have been interested in tattooing and piercing since I went with my mum about 5-6 years ago to have my name tattooed on her wrist, from that moment I was hooked. I would spend as much time as I could researching and reading about different piercings and tattoos people have had done and how it has helped them get through difficult stages in their life. I have always known that I wanted to be apart of this culture and in turn it be apart of me. When I was just thirteen I decided that I wanted an industrial... very ... read more

My less than painful daith

I've always been very interested in piercings. My family, mainly my dad, has always been very against them. Getting him to agree to get my lobes pierced a second time was tough, let alone anything "out of the ordinary". Eventually I got my nose, tragus, and most recently, my daith pierced. I generally have to do a lot of research on them first, a rule I gave to myself so that I know for sure that its a piercing I want to get. I also have a bleeding disorder, which tends to make this a more complicated endeavor than I ... read more

My very first DIY piercing!

First off, a little bit about myself. My name is Sarah and I am 16 years old. I have 7 piercings which include: my 1st lobes, 2nd lobes, left cartilage, right tragus and bellybutton. For the past couple of weeks, I have been thinking about getting a new piercing. My last piercing was my tragus which I had gotten pierced in July (it's now October). My tragus was finally healed and had no more crusties and didn't hurt at all, so I thought this is the perfect time to get a new piercing! I was in my math class talking ... read more

My Rook Piercing

Recently I have had a small obsession with ear piercings. It all started with a run of the mill helix, which prompted me to get my second lobes the very next day. Not long after I found myself itching for more, I knew, after much research, that I wanted my left tragus done, but my right helix, is still not completely healed and will flare up on occasion. So I knew I was gonna get something else done on my left ear, I just could not decide what. I found a picture of a rook piercing and absolutely fell in ... read more

My piercing and I

Some background info: I'm 14 and I'm in love with piercings ATM I only have 2 ear ones (lobe and the one this is about), but by the time I'm finished I'll have about 14/15 (3xlobe, 3x lobe in other ear, 1xforward helix <-this experience is about this, 1xcartilage, 1xdiath, 1xindustrial, 1xtragus, 1xeyebrow, 1xmedusa and 1xlabret and am considering snake bites) :). On the way home from school me and my mate were talking about piercings and tattoos we want one day and it got me wanting one so I started looking around random websites when I came across this ... read more

You Need a Taper to Pierce my Ear?!

So, I guess I'll start out by introducing myself a little. I've loved piercings since I was young. It was a fascination that my dad hated, but one that my mom had no issue with. As she saw it, I was a well-behaved kid, got excellent grades without her even having to make sure I did my homework or studied, and I didn't ask for much and all of this has continued through college. So, a piercing, just on the ear, isn't that big of a deal to her. My mom's one of those that you definitely don't cross if ... read more

Inner left conch

I had gotten both of my conches done before, and both I had taken both out due to scarring on the back. However after thinking for a while I decided to just go ahead and try it again. Living in NYC there are a bunch of small parlors that seem a little sketchy, but so cheap. I was down near 6th ave earlier today when I saw a parlor that I had walked by numerous times before. It is a pretty modern looking shop, clean and I have usually seen a person or two in there. I went in, waited ... read more

Two Industrials in Same Ear

When I was a bit younger, 3 years ago to be exact, I got an industrial piercing on my right ear as a whim. At this point I didn't really know a lot about industrials and the piercer had positioned the piercing a little too high in my ear. That has been one thing that bugged me in the back of my head all this time but otherwise I love love love my first industrial. So fast forward to present day... Now I'm in college and I'm seeing all these people with industrial piercings just like mine. I wanted to ... read more

Industrialized

Ahh, the saga of my industrial. This is a story that isn't particularly interesting, as my ear hasn't turned green and fallen off—but it was a grand experience for me, and hopefully, other people can have as pleasant an experience as my own. I've wanted an industrial for, oh I don't know, ages. I've always found that they're piercings that can be a bit different, yet not completely wild. Living in a culture where self expression and body modification is usually discouraged, I figured that an industrial would be the perfect piercing for me. I was fifteen when I first ... 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
