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

Painful but worth it

Let me start by saying I don't recommend doing what I did to stretch my ears, it was stupid and dangerous. I was about 14 when I first got my ears pierced with the one intention of stretching them, but I was oblivious to the right methods to stretching, and where to start. I began with asking my sister who thought it was a great idea, she also helped heavily in my decision for tattoos and piercings. Starting with a big mistake, I got them pierced with a piercing gun at the mall. Knowing what I know now I wish ... read more

Pain for pleasure

Well I've wanted my tragus pierced for quite a while. Probably since before I got my nose done 2 months ago. So this weekend I went out to get a tattoo and being only 17 I had a feeling I wouldn't be able to find anywhere to have one done. So I decided that seen as my friend was having her belly pierced I may aswell get it done. So no tattoo = Tragus piercing. We wandered around manchester for about and hour or so and couldn't find anywhere to tattoo me. So we headed to Holier Than Thou to ... read more

My temperamental rook

When I decided to get my rook, it had been 5 months since my last piercing. I personally like to wait awhile between piercings to give them time to heal, and rightfully so as they usually give me trouble somewhere down the road. However, I had been planning it for a couple months so I was getting impatient. As a Christmas present to myself I decided to get my rook done. At this point, no one I knew at my school or anywhere else had one, so I liked that it wasn't so common. (Of course after I got mine ... 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

My Industrial Experience!

Back in august i started to really consider getting an industrial piercing. For about a month i was doing research all over the web. I really wanted to get all of the details so I knew what I was getting myself into. In almost every story i read the person talked about how painful this piercing was and how much pain they were in after they got it. After reading all of this I had second thoughts, I really didn't know if I could handle the pain. But the more I looked at pictures, the more I really wanted the ... read more

My Ear Lobe Stretching Journey.

I can not remember the exact date when I first got my ear lobes pierced, although I do remembering being a sophomore in High School and having a 12 inch mo-hawk. I did not know much about body modification at the time. In fact I didn't even have a single piercing. To be honest I am not sure where I got the idea, I guess it just seemed like the thing to do. I had initial plans of stretching my ears to a 4 gauge. At the time I was not of legal age so I had to ask my ... read more

Inner Conch Dermal Punches—2g

The first time I can remember seeing a large-gauge inner conch piercing was on the piercer who did my lobes about four months ago. It was a red glass plug, probably 4g, and my only thought was that it must have hurt to get a piercing right there. My lobes were my first piercings, so the conches were to be my second. Fast forward to two days ago: I arrive at the piercing parlor with a trusty friend, who was nice enough to drive us two hours to get there since no local shop did dermal punching. Alex was the ... read more
