Stupid Idea

I wanted my tragus pierced since I saw it on someone a few years ago, and although it is becoming way more popular now, as a lot of girls I know have it, I still think it's a classy piercing, and one that looks good at the same time. However, I was never really motivated to go out and get it done, nor was I ever really into piercings as much as I have been since earlier this year. But, at the beginning of the year, I had seven lobes, and since then, I have gotten my bridge, upper helix, ... read more

A punch in the head that I still love

Ok! so I suffer from a disease called "laziness". So instead of bothering to go the long way around to achieve my goal of a nice big conch piercing (ok it's not that big) I took the short route. In my infinite wisdom I decided to get my conch punched instead of pierced and stretched. After a Friday night of major boozing (I know, I know, bad idea) I hopped on a bus to Dublin with a friend who wanted to get his eyebrow pierced AGAIN (lol 5 times and it rejected again lol), I headed off to my favourite ... read more

My Personal Ear Stretching Journey

Hello there BME readers, my name is Blake, and this is my story of the process of stretching/gaugeing my ears. When I was about 13 or 14, I decided that I wanted to pierce my ear. It was sort of a "spur of the moment kind" of thing. I, after making this decision, went immediately to the local mall (the town I lived in did not have a tattoo or piercing studio). I did not realize the difference between ear stands and parlors, so I figured,"why not". I sat in the cold chair as a large, seemingly dull-witted woman took ... 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 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

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
