Addictive

So for the longest while my mom begged me to get my ears pierced. Being a male she said I would stand out from the crowd. Little did she know, by the time I finally decided to get my lobes done, every kid in school was rocking the weakest diamonds and studs you had ever seen. I didn't know many people with stretched lobes and I had always loved plugs. It so awesome to be able to wear all those awesome materials (stone wood glass silicone etc.) in your ear and everybody I knew was too lazy to order the ... read more

Painful Inner Conches

I had gotten into body piercings at a young age and always liked they way they looked. I had my ears gauged and my tongue and lip pierced, but wanted to get something more unusual that not everyone had. So I started researching on BME and came across the large gauge inner conch piercings. I instantly fell in love with them and waited till I was 18 so I could get them, for my mom wouldn't take me to get them after i got my tongue done. When I finally turned 18 I went to the shop I got all ... read more

Never-ending ear stretch

I first had my left ear pierced back in 1997. It was pierced with a gun while on holiday in Switzerland of all places (I didn't know better at the time), but it healed without issues and was really nearly painless. After that healed I played with it a lot and soon I was able to get the entire hoop through the hole (it was quite a bit thicker than the part that is meant to go through the hole), so when I got my right ear pierced 2 years later (by a proper professional), I knew that I wanted ... read more

my earlobe scalpelling, finally

First of all, I'm not mentioning the artist's name or which shop it was at because of the use of anesthetics and because I am a minor, I do not want him to get in trouble. For this story we'll call him Mo. Okay! So I have been stretching my lobes for over a year this time around(I'd tried before when I was like 12 and uneducated) and ever since I've started stretching I've had my eyes on big lobes. Why? Sorry, I don't have an answer about them representing anything on any sort of spiritual standpoint, I just think ... read more

My Amazing Cartilage.

Warning; do not try this at home unless you are absolutely sure that you want to have a D.I.Y. piercing. Make sure that if you are going to pierce yourself, you have the proper tools and sterilization techniques. So, anyway, let's meet, shall we? I'm Marie and this is my story about my DIY cartilage piercing. About three months ago, I went over to my friend, Jill Z.'s, house. We were just hanging out when I told Jill that I really wanted to get another piercing. I had already had my ear lobes stretched to 14 gauges and was planning ... read more

2g or not to be

To start off, my name is Kate and I am a sophomore in high school. I have very conservative parents and therefore pretty much all piercings and other body modifications are out of the question until I move out. However, there's one thing that I have managed to get by with: stretching my ears. I highly do NOT recommend hiding things as big as ear stretching from your parents; but I am so in love with the process that I feel like I have no other choice. My first (and only) ear piercings were done with a gun when I ... read more

00 to 1/2

My first piercing was acquired at the ripe age of 6, admittedly a young age for a boy in the United States. Harassment from classmates and peers hastily ensued and being young and impressionable I removed it just as hastily. However, as I grew older it became more acceptable for me to have shinny pieces of metal and stone in my ears and I pierced them again. Eventually I got the grand idea that gauges were the way to go and sought them out. Being young and lacking any amount of common sense, I quickly jumped from 16 to 8, ... read more

Gauging skip. Damn it hurts.

When I was smaller, my dad always asked if I wanted my ear pierced. I had seen my favorite power ranger, Tommy, with a little loop through his ear (I was around 5 at this point) but I thought it would hurt. I mean, it's a piece of metal being shoved forcefully through an area not meant to have a hole. How much more painful does it have to sound? I did once, got one ear pierced, but the lady, using a gun, mind you, screwed it all up and made it go through at an angle resembling a slash ... read more

Forward Helix Trouble!

So first of all I'll explain my piercing addiction. When I was six, I begged my mother to let me get my lobes pierced and she said I could get them done when I was 18. Six weeks of begging later and I had two beautiful green studs in my ears, courtesy of the local pharmacy and a piercing gun. My next earring didn't come until about five years later when I decided I wanted a second hole but only on my right ear, and, after months more of begging I got it done. The next piercing I got was ... read more

- Done already ?

- I've always wanted to get both a vertical and horizontal piercing in one of my ears so I decided to get the horizontal done first. At the time I was in Sweden visiting my family and having 2 friends over from the UK and one of them also wanted to get pierced! I have a list of piercings I want to have done, but it didn't take me long to pick the one I decided to get done! I have mostly been recently focusing on getting hidden piercings, but now I felt like getting one that shows all the ... read more
