5mm (4gauge) cartilage stretch

Before I get into this, hindsight is an amazing thing! I was debating between a punch and stretching, I decided on the latter for the strange and simple reason of "if I get it punched its over and done with and I will be bored afterwards!" stupid reasoning but it worked for me at the time. I pierced my ear myself, I knew the risks but didn't have £25 to spend out on a new piercing – so I grabbed an old stud earring and pretty much just shoved it through my cartilage, very limited pain but lots of blood, ... read more

Vertical Tragus report

So, I'd wanted a new piercing in my ear for a while and started looking around at what I could have done. I already had a horizontal tragus in my left ear, and an industrial, and at first I was toying with a conch but then I came across the vertical tragus on BME and I knew I had to have it in my right, as I really love vertical piercings! I have vertically pierced nipples and I like the way the vertical tragus sits in the ear with the balls at the top and bottom, so I contacted a ... read more

Couldn't Have Gone Better

My friend Allison and I had been itching to get pierced for the past few weeks and had been researching back and forth during our work days on which direction to go. After reading a few stories online and looking at Google Images for a solid few hours, we both decided on getting our tragus(es) done. We both felt they were a flattering and unique mod that could be both noticeable but not overwhelming for a first needle-piercing experience. I'm an avid user of the networking site Nexopia, so I browsed the Ethical Safe Body Modification forum for advice on ... read more

The anticipation is worse than the piercing!

I'm just a normal guy. That's a little lie; I'm actually just a normal gay guy, who has always had something of an interest in piercings ranging from the mundane though to the obscure. My interest was only ever that though; and although I often thought about getting something simple pierced, perhaps just my ear, I knew I would never actually ask my mum if I could! I'm sure plenty of people have been there... Anyway, I left home and went to Uni; discovered BMEzine, and explored the vast array of possibilities available. I was free to do as I ... read more

A great day.

This is my lovely story about my beautiful tragus piercing. It is kind of long and not to fascinating, but if you would like to learn about my piercing experience, then continue on! Ever since I have been exposed to piercings and tattoos, they have interested me very much and I wanted to experience these things for myself.When I was before the age of one, just a baby, my mother started my piercing experience with plain and simple regular ear piercings. After this, during high school I added to my collection with a second hole in each ear and then ... read more

sup tragus!

I've always wanted my tragus pierced, but the morning a few years ago when i went to get it, I chickened out and didn't end up getting it. I watched my friend get hers pierced with a gun, which I would never even think of, and she said even that hurt so I couldn't even imagine what it would be like with a needle. After that I just kind of forgot about it, except the times I've walked past people who had them, thought about how amazing they looked. But I'd started thinking about it more, finally got a job ... read more

My Right Tragus.

Well hey there. :) As a lot of kids my age (I am thirteen right now, turning fourteen on October thirteenth) my mom is strict on the piercings I get right now and I can not explain to her how cute it will work or anything. So I always have to do them myself. I use to be able to pierce anything on my body but lately I have not had all that much guts so when I do pierce things on me, it's not some stupid thing I've just thought I'd do. I look up a lot before I ... read more

My Industrial - I’m the worlds biggest cry-baby

I'm the worlds biggest cry-baby... About two months after getting my tongue pierced, I decided it was time for another piercing. My tongue went so well, and I love it, but it's kinda lonely. This time I decided to talk it over with my Mum because she kind of flipped out about my tongue. The only problem is that she's really old-fashioned (she was upset after finding out I had my ears pierced a second time) and didn't want me to get any more piercings. I did the whole "Oh, but if I don't like it anymore I can always ... read more

My Ear Scalpelling Experience

I have been fascinated by stretched ears ever since the first time I laid eyes on them. I saw them on myspace and bme, but for a while almost strictly on the internet. It wasn't until about a year or two ago that I began seeing people that I knew that had started stretching their ears, my small home city of Oneida isn't exactly known for it's diversity. I decided about a year ago that I would begin stretching my own ears, I had wanted them for myself ever since I first saw them. I had my ears pierced when ... read more

My awesome tragus.

Alright, so I was 14. I had only my lobes pierced twice each, and a cartilage on my left ear. It was my 15th birthday and I was jealous that my sister had gotten her belly button pierced. I was really impressed by the clean studio I went to, Wicked Tattooz in Minerva Ohio, that I had my mom take me there to get a tragus. Well, before hand, I had always wanted a tragus ever since I saw one on a girl that my sister was friends with. I asked her if she was ever afraid that it was ... read more
