not only a peice of my ear but a piece of my pride!

Lets start this off just like every other story that people post on here. Since I was young I was always fascinated by the art and culture of body modification. Of course my family thought it was the newest way of self mutilation but I thought It was beautiful and I wanted to envelope myself in every aspect of it. I started at a young age, piercing everything I could get a needle through and not caring about sanitation or technique. The strangest part was when I started getting them done professionally, I asked the artist to pierce slowly, because ... read more

new school, new independence, new piercing

Ever since I got my second lobe piercings in sixth grade, I have had the desire to put more and more holes in my body. After having three sets of lobe piercings, one helix, my nose, and my navel pierced, I decided it was time for something more uncommon among my group of friends. That is when I started shopping around for my new body decoration. I came across a diagram of the "anatomy" of a totally pierced ear. The tragus was intriguing, but at the same time it was intimidating. None of my friends had theirs done. Unfortunately, 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

My New Vertical Tragus

After getting my scaffold in February I really wanted a piercing that not many people had, having looked on the internet and various piercing I came across the 'Vertical Tragus' and instantly fell in love with it! I looked up as much information for it as I could find (which weren't much) I decided I was going to get it done. I was pretty much really scared of getting this but I wasn't going to let that stop me! It was the 29th of September and it was the day I was going to get my vertical tragus after waiting ... read more
