My stretching journey.

My stretching journey. First I'll tell you my current mods: i have 3mm septum, bridge, 15mm tongue, frowny, 27mm lobes, 4mm second lobe, both nipples, navel, Meatotomy, one tattoo, three scarification's and multiple retired piercings. At the age of 14 I wanted my ears pierced for no real reason so I asked mum if I could and she said yes and left it at that. About a week later we went to the chemist in town to get it done. (Yes I no tat its apparently bad but hey I was young and didn't know) So I picked out the ... read more

My Decision is a Daith!

I have wanted my Daith pierced for a very long time, since I got into piercings at 12. I haven't gotten my Daith until now because I feared my ear wasn't compatible with this piercing. So I ended up getting other piercings, monroe, tongue, lobes (stretched), snug, rook, inner conch, tragus, anti-tragus, belly button top and bottom, septum, nostril, and even my hip. I had just successfully pierced my tragus. Which I used a 18g sterile autoclave needle, and 18g ring. I've been doing my own piercings with professional equipment for 4 years. I am in no way saying that ... read more

My all amazing Daith.

My name is Courtney, I just turned 15. I currently only have my lobes, nose, tragus and now daith as my mum has only just allowed me to get some of the piercings I want but there will be plenty more in the future that is for sure. I have caught the piercing bug after having my sisters friends who's an alternative model living with us (Search her! LadyBel Genocide) and she's covered it piercings and tattoos. Also my sister have quite a few herself. So it was my birthday in two weeks and I already decided with mum that ... read more

Ungrateful gun, transformed to Gold!

I was about 15 going on 16 when I was taken to the local mall and was allowed to get my wonderful ears tortured by that ungrateful gun. Don't get me wrong I loved my new found love of sparkling metal and zircon. It was a wonderful feeling knowing I had something different to show as my personality, as some friends have pointed out, was dull. I was blessed with the "shyness" gene and quite fond of it. I was always looking for something to bring me out of my shell. I tried the usual wearing of different types of ... read more

Tragus Piercing - all healed well.

Upon getting my tragus piercing, I had no idea what to expect. I had done no research on the piercing, and aside from thinking it was absolutely gorgeous on others, I had no idea about its pain level, or healing process. Even so, I was ecstatic to get this new piercing, and excitedly awaited the needle. I had a few problems with the piercing after due to my lack of knowledge, however, as soon as I knew what I was doing, all healed well! With this, I recommend doing this research. Though I must say, this impromptu piercing was one ... read more

The Rise and Fall of a 10 Gauge Stretch

I remember when I went. It was an adventure; I'd never been to a tattoo place before, and although I lived in DC all of my life, I'd never explored DuPont Circle with such a goal. Fatty's Custom Tattooz seemed a lifetime away. By the time I'd found it, I was getting a little nervous. After crossing the threshold, my stomach began to do little cartwheels, and I was glad I brought two friends along. Now, this part is funny to me; before entering, I tried to compose myself, turning my nervous walk into a comfortable stride, planning to waltz ... read more

Past Linked To Present

Body Modification links us from the past to the present and awakens our vision to the future... Recently I have made some new awesome friends and reconnected effortlessly with a dear friend at Bodystain, a tattoo and piercing shop in Columbus Ohio located on Cleveland avenue and Morse road intersection. A wonderful visit on Friday December the fourth transpired into an empowering piercing experience that had aspects of both planning and spontaneity which was very cool. The weekend that was looming over me was scaring the hell out of me as it was to be the nineteenth anniversary of my ... read more

My very nervous scaffold!!

Around the beginning of summer, I was standing with some friends in the social space of our school, chatting about piercing. I had been really wanting a piercing for a long time now. My parents aren't as bad as most. Well, my dad is pretty strict, but my mum is rather liberal. Unfortunately when it comes to piercings, she has her limits. I had been wanting snakebites for about 3 years, but, in typical parental fashion, both parents objected, giving me the whole 'while you live under my roof' lecture. Looks like I was out of luck until I was ... read more

My very swollen and very painful snug piercing

I decided I wanted my snug pierced when I was 15 years old and I couldn't wait to turn 16 to get it done without parent consent. I checked different body piercing places and decided to go for 'Tribal voice' I went in there and I talked to a piercer to see if I could get it done, she said yes and told me she was going to put a 8mm bar in my ear and off I went to the studio. I was so scared to get it done and the pain was horrible, when the plastic tube was ... read more

My near-snug experience

Since I was 16, I've been getting various ear piercings. No one in my family or immediate circle of friends has more than two piercings or one tattoo, so I began to get curious about body mod in high school. Over the last two or so years I have gotten seven different ear piercings, my latest being my right snug. I got my snug done two weeks ago, when I went with a friend to get her lip pierced--a new piercing and tattoo parlor close to campus was running a special and I had heard good things about the place. ... read more
