My First Real Piercings

For a long time I was thinking about getting a tattoo or some other body modification. I blame my sister for this, as she has two tattoos, a larger one on her chest and a smaller one on her arms. I never really thought about piercings until about a month ago, and in the end, I decided that a piercing would be better for me. I figured, "Well, it's not as permanent as a tattoo, it's a bit cheaper, and since I'm a big baby, it will probably hurt less since it's quick. What's not to love?" And thus the ... read more

Conch piercing and healing.

Well like everyone else let me start off by saying I've had a few other piercings, 4 lobe holes (1st ones 7/16ths, 4th ones retired) and I had a self done septum when I was like 15 (Also retired, not recommend at all, I was young and I obviously could not pierce a straight line to save my life.) It was my 18th birthday and definitely time for a legit piercing; nothing gunned or homegrown. I was much more interested in piercings when I couldn't actually go out and get one on my own, but now seeing as I'm in ... read more

Two cartilage at once? Not such a good idea.

I have thirteen piercings most of which are self done and all of which I've had little to no trouble with so when I decided I wanted two cartilage piercings (piercings number 14 and 15) next to each other getting them both at the same time didn't seem like a horrible idea. However since I am sixteen I still live with my parents who hate piercings which makes getting them a problem. I don't like doing cartilage piercings myself because its hard to see exactly what your doing and no one like uneven piercings so I usually have one of ... read more

Getting my ear to two inches

Well I really wanted to get my ears pierced so I wanted to do them cheap, and the only place around was WalMart. First off never go there for your ears, guns are bad for your ears, but when I went there I did not know about that. So I went in and paid the money and then I was done sitting there at a 18 gauge. I went home and found out my ears did not like what was in my ear so I took it out and I just so happen to have a 16 gauge crescent that ... read more

Tragus Piercing = Love.

I've had quite a love for piercing for a while now. I had my ears done when I was little, and pierced my own second and third sets of lobe holes myself. Then, just before i turned 15, I had my navel pierced. Since then, I had gone over a bunch of piercing that I thought i wanted, but wasn't quite sure. One day, and I'm not sure how I decided on this, but I decided I wanted to pierce my tragus. I can't remember where I first saw the piercing. Maybe here on BME, or come to think of ... read more

From Mildly Wild to Wildly Mild

I always thought that earrings on my lobes would look weird, like a boy trying to look like a girl, I'm not sure what made me feel that way. I also always avoided getting my ears pierced because my sisters had such painful experiences especially with turning the earrings and crusties, they would scream when they had to get them turned, and I just thought nothing was worth that pain. About a year ago I got my first piercing, technically a two gauge dermal punch in my helix, and I expected that to be it in the piercing scene for ... read more

the story of my lobe stretching

Well, this is my story about stretching my lobes. It first started last year some time when my friend stretched his ear to 2mm using a fake stretcher then pushing a 2mm nail through. After seeing his I thought that stretching your ear lobes was stupid and I wasn't planning on doing I but after a while me and my friend decided to stretch our ears more so, we went into Launceston and he bought a 3mm while I bought a 2mm. I had already put in a fake stretcher because it seemed to stretch my friend's lobe so I ... read more

A small stretch

I've always thought stretched earlobes were just absolutely beautiful. There is something striking about it aesthetically, and something beautiful about the process of stretching your earlobes. I'd had my earlobes pierced twice in each ear with a gun since earlier child hood, and wore various 18 gauge jewelry in them. Other than those, I have my nostril pierced and at 14g, my left nipple at 14g, my navel at 14g, and my left helix done twice, one at 16g, and one at 14g. A few months ago I started itching for a new piercing, and bounced back and forth between ... read more

pretty lil DIY forward helix

As a little rather naive twelve year old I thought it would a good idea to pierce my right lobe for a third time, of course the day after I got scared that my mum would find out and so I took out. I found out she was strictly against any more piercings (at all!) after I begged her to let me get my nostril done (bad idea to do it so young me thinks). Anyway flash forward three years, I'd like to think I'd be a bit more sensible about my well being...wrong! Two weeks ago, I got the ... read more

Noob stretcher

Hey guys and gals, here is my story on my first experiences with stretching which started only late late last night, and possibly early early this morning and brings you up to speed with me as of right now. As I entered my teenage years, I had always yearned for a piercing. I'm still in my teens, and I've been pierced 5 times now, all in the ears. My left lobe was first pierced when I was just 13 or 14, but closed up within the year. I got it pierced shortly thereafter in the same spot though. I had ... read more
