my ears can handle more metal than i thought they could...

I have the smallest ears that you have probably ever seen. I think that they haven't grown with the rest of my body since I was six years old. Honestly. I got my first lobe holes gunned at claire's when I was nine. Then I got bored and did my own second holes earlier this year. I started gauging them at around the same time. Now my ears are six, and that happened about a day before I got my rook. I wasn't sure that I wanted a rook at all. At first I wanted both a rook and a ... read more

the start of a happy life

Well like lots of other 14 year old girls I wanted to be different and I wanted to stand out (I still do) I'm not sure when I started my fascination with piercings, I guess I just loved the way they looked and all the different kinds of jewelry that could be put in. But these days piercing are getting incredibly popular, but to me a helix was better than nothing. One thing that was on my side was of that my sister had gotten hers done with our mum when she was 12 or 13, I was currently 14 ... read more

Diary of an Anti-tragus

31st March 2007 I'm not 100% on how the actual piercing was done, this is the first needle piercing that I've gone in for all by myself, with no one to hold my hand.So I was more interested with not passing out. Day 1 Holy Crap! It feels like my entire ear has been pierced.....it aches on the front, it hurts on the back, it canes up the top, and it's painful down the bottom. I am taking my Advil religiously.....I don't think its helping too much, But on the plus side my ear isn't swollen, just sore. Laughing hurts...so ... read more

My Snug Piercing-- and the Lesson It Taught Me

About three months ago, I had a friend over. She had wanted to get her nipples pierced for quite a while, and I had wanted a snug piercing for a few months. My parents were not going to sign a consent form so that I could get the piercing professionally, even though I told them I would pay for it. I figured I would have to wait until I was 18 (I wasn't even 17 yet when I decided I wanted the piercing). And on that night about three months ago, she randomly got a call from her guy friend ... read more

My Dermal Adventure

Hey all, so this is my grand dermal punch adventure: So, I have wanted to gauge my ears for a great while, but I have never had the intestinal fortitude to do so until recently. I don't know why I never did it seeing as how I have a septum piercing and a body covered in traditional tattoos. I have always admired people with gauges and always wanted a pair of my own. So two days ago I finally built up my courage to take the plunge into the wide world of gauging. I just thought I would share my ... 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

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

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
