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

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

My industrial experience

Well, i don't know where to start here. I've been into body modification for a few years now. I don't really know how it all got started, but here I am writing and reading BME experiences. My parents are really anti piercing. I somehow convinced my mom to let me get my second holes in 8th grade, which was done at Claire's (don't make the same mistake I did),and the lady that did it did not know what she was doing, and one got ripped out of my ear and the back fell off the other one. To me it ... read more

My DIY cartilage experience gone bad

Ok so first I would like to say that I have my navel, nose and 4 piercings in each ear and had the middle near the cartilage in my right ear done and I've never had any problems with them. They all healed up perfectly well. So it was last saturday night (October 18, '08) and my friend samantha was spending the night. And after a long night of downing caffeine and talking about ex boyfriends Samantha suddenly turns to me, at 2 o'clock in the morning, and says "Hey Nessa I wanna pierce my cartilage". I had always thought ... 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
