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

An urge for a helix piercing...

I wanted to get a helix piercing since I was in high school...about 14 years ago. It never happened however, because I was afraid of the pain despite constantly sketching characters with 2 or 3 helix piercings in each ear. So far I have 2 regular piercings in one ear, 3 in the other and my navel pierced. After I had my navel done (it really was not a bad experience but I was not prepared for the 'shock' of getting that pierced) I swore I would never get anything else pierced again! But they do say piercing is an ... read more

Stretching my ears to 30mm.

Let me just start off with why I stretched my ears. I wish I could say that the reason I started stretching was because I felt I needed stretched ears to enhance my appearance and complete my body, but honestly I just saw some people with them and thought they looked pretty cool and thought I would do it to be a bit different from my friends. It was not until very recently that I started becoming more and more interested in the whole body modification culture and really started to understand the whole concept. I can gladly say that ... read more

An Industrial Experience

A few weeks ago, I started itching to get another piercing. I have my nostril pierced and 3 lobe piercings. I knew I didn't want another facial piercing and the ear seemed like the way to go, since there's so much variety in piercings to choose. After careful consideration, I chose an industrial. A friend of mine in high school had had one. It was noticeable enough to be unique, but not too out there. So began my researching period. I looked up everything that was involved in the process, aftercare, potential problems, etc. When I felt like I had ... read more

scaffold piercing.

Having heard so many horror stories about industrial/scaffold piercings, I was reluctant to get it done, even though I had my heart set on it. I researched the hell out of it, and found hundreds of people complaining that it was a notoriously painful piercing, and a notorious bleeder. Finally, two days ago (3/10/09) I finally plucked up the courage to get it done :) Picking a piercing studio was a no brainer for me; I went straight to Blue Banana in Coventry, as they had pierced me before. I was aware that Blue Banana was sometimes said to be ... read more

10G Lobe Piercings.

Like pretty much everyone else out there, I got my lobes gunned at the mall as a kid when I decided I wanted them pierced. The traumatic nature of the procedure combined with the horrible aftercare instructions and low-quality jewelry did not make my ears very happy; I had the piercings (and a second set later) for about five years and they never healed. They were constantly extremely irritated, which I didn't feel like dealing with, so I retired them. I stupidly tried to re-pierce them myself several times, but always ended up taking them out a day later because ... read more
