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

plugs make people Calm

First of all I'd like to start off by asking a question that doesn't require an answer. Who doesn't stretch their own ears, but that's beside the point. This is about my 5/8ths inch ears. I had always wanted plugs but was too scared because no one in my family has anything out of the ordinary. One major problem I've had throughout my stretching experience has been losing my plugs!! The one and only reason for this is because I surf pretty much everyday and no-flare plugs and tapers do not stay in when you're getting worked like a rag ... read more

All I want for Christmas is....an industrial!?

Finally, Christmas time, and what do I want? An industrial piercing, of course! My mom agreed with it, and of course she wasn't much into piercings but she was fine. When I came right out of school, I walked to the tattoo place with my mother and she got all the papers she needed to sign and stuff. I was freaked, now. What if it started bleeding crazy? Or if the pain hurts a lot more, since I'm younger then most of these people who got them already? I already have my upper cartilage pierced, and I felt nothing, so ... read more

My inner conch!

This was actually in mid July, but 6 months is close enough. Originally, I wanted my snug pierced. But after doing a lot of research and posting pictures for other educated people to see, I realized it was too small to pierce unless it had a higher placement. I had only liked the one in the middle so I was very discouraged and disappointed when I found out I couldn't get it. That's when someone suggested an inner conch piercing instead. I looked it up and decided it was cute. The last piercing I had gotten was my double helix, ... read more

Hardships of life and stretching to 7/8ths in 6months.

Once upon a time I was a young lad growing up in a seaming less normal world, where things out of the ordinary stunned me, but made me smile at the same time. Growing up as a teenager in this society I never had the luxury of seeing stretched lobes up close and personal. The closest I came was the always amazing videos about different world cultures. To many these videos were filled with taboo, but I embraced them with respect for their own culture differences, and own interpretation of bodily acceptance. I finally began seeing more people with gauges ... read more

My tragus piercing

I'd been planning on getting my tragus pierced for a few months, I had already stretched my ear to a 3mm and my ear was looking quite empty. Originally my girlfriend was gonna take me to get it done (she's really into piercings) but one sunday morning my mother decided to give me fifteen pounds and I had nothing to do so I thought I'd go get it done. The only place i knew i could get it done for under that was Blue Banana, I've heard an awful lot of bad things about them and I was a little ... read more

15mm plugs - 18mm tunnels, painful but worth it

Okay, so I've been stretching my ears for a few years now. My one ear was at 15mm and the other at 1/2 inch. I've been at this size for a while and I thought it was about time to go bigger. I wanted to move up a few sizes for a while but I could never save enough money. Finally I saved up about $25 and figured it was enough to buy at least one tunnel. My ears weren't the same size as it was so it wouldn't matter. During my spare at school, my friend took me to ... read more

My Industrial...AT LAST!

I've always loved my body modifications, having my ears stretched to 8mm in both ears, my nose, tragus and belly button pierced and my gorgeous fairy tattoo. Ever since I was 14/15 I wanted my industrial done, after spending my IT lessons in school surfing BME and seeing a girl who worked in The Mirage in Las Vegas, USA who had the most perfect industrial I've ever seen! When I was 17 two of my friends had theirs done, but sadly both of them took them out due to a fault by the piercer in my local town, who pierced ... read more
