Dermal punched earlobes.

My ear lobes were pierced initially when I was a year old at a department store with a piercing gun. My right ear was pierced in a much lower position than my left ear because after the first earring went through, I apparently did not sit still for the second one (as I was screaming and crying from the pain of the first ear), and whoever performed the procedure missed the mark as a result. Fast forward about fourteen years later, when I was a sophomore in high school (2004), I stretched my ear lobe piercings to 12ga. They remained ... read more

My rook is a happy rook

There are some piercings that you think about for years before you get them, and then there are others that you discover and immediately can't wait to get. The rook, for me, was definitely the latter. I have had conventional lobe piercings since I was a kid and a helix since my late teens, but had been thinking about getting a tragus for a while. However, I listen to a lot of music via headphones and wear in-ear headphones for most of my workday, so a tragus didn't seem to be the smartest choice for me, especially because my ear ... 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

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

My Very First Cartilage Piercing.

Ever since I was about five years old, I was always interested in tattoos and piercings. I'm from the Philippines, and it's nothing strange to get your first lobe piercings as a baby, so I had those already, plus a set of second lobe piercings, thus totalling up to two piercings on each ear. Yet I always craved more, and began to think about a navel piercing or a cartilage piercing. Needless to say, the navel piercing didn't happen; my father disliked the idea, and is actually quite against piercings, so he said that 'he would meet me halfway' and ... read more

My rook piercing.... yay!

On Friday afternoon, I was sitting on the computer, deciding if i should go for a daith piercing, or a navel piercing. Then, I discovered the Rook piercing. I instantly fell in love with it, it looked fantastic, and people said it would suit me. I decided I would borrow twenty pounds from a friend and go and get it done on Saturday morning. I wasn't worried about the pain, as I have a very high pain tolerance, and didn't feel any of my other piercings. I was going with a friend who was getting her first piercing, so most ... read more

My Lovely Snug Experience

I'd been wanting a unique piercing in my ear for some time, but wasn't sure what it would be. I needed another piercing to help balance out the number of piercings in each of my ears. I'd seen a rook and daith piercing and thought that perhaps those would be something a little different I could try. But I wasn't exactly convinced they were what I wanted. I needed to find that one piercing that stood out from all the rest. As I did some research and poking around the internet I came upon the snug piercing. I had never ... read more

My lovely industrial piercing!

Since my ear lobes have been pierced on each ear in the past, I would like to taste of another body piercing. However I enjoyed belly button piercing twice (or two attempts!) and surface piercing but the end wasn't good and I had to remove barbell. I also had upper cartilage piercing twice in the past but I had to remove it because of personal reason. Now I am living alone and I would like to do another type of body piercing so I researched at both BME & Youtube to find right one for me. In the end I ... 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
