My 8g Conch; The Best/Worst Piercing Ever.

So I had been wrestling with the idea of getting my inner conch done for quite a while. I knew that I loved the look of them and that it would suit what I have going on with my ears as it is, but I also knew that I wanted something different. I was thinking of trying a larger gauge, because it seems like everyone in the town that I live has either 16g, or 14g. Can you say boring? After a few months of thought, and many conversations with Steve. I had decided on a 10g, which I believed ... read more


I was never really a big fan of piercings and or tattoos untill recently. My friend knew that I had done my industrial and really liked it. I asked him about different piercings because I knew he enjoyed piercings as well. He was showing me different piercings that he thought I might like. He showed me this UFO piercing and I immediatly fell in love. I read the stories and thought it didnt sound too bad but I was still a little frightened that it was a combination and thought maybe i would just get the rook part of the ... read more

My One Inch Ear

Well, let's start off with a little about me shall we? My name is Mike, I come from a small suburban town in New York. I am 17 years old and I have always had an interest in body modification ever since I was a little tyke. Now I have had my left ear pierced since I was 12 and I was quite happy with it. I would wear anything in it ranging from studs, to hoops, to the grandly sophisticated paper clip. I would even make large chains out of them and let them dangle from my ear because ... read more

Mon piercing au tragus...

Bonjour tout le monde ! Cet article concerne mon premier piercing : le tragus (gauche pour être plus précise). Je suis allée le faire à Thionville, chez Tendance tattoo et piercing, un studio super nickel ! C'était il y a 7 ans, j'étais âgée de 14 ans, c'est pourquoi mes parents avaient dû m'accompagner afin de signer une autorisation parentale... Au préalable, je m'étais armée des pages jaunes et j'avais appelé tous les pierceurs notés dans l'annuaire. J'ai bien évidemment éliminé de ma liste ceux qui ne décrochaient pas, puis ceux que j'ai qualifié de "bizarres", pour n'en garder qu'un, ... read more

Two Years Later

I'd always wanted a cartilage piercing. My aunt was the first person I knew that had one, and I had admired and envied it since the age of 4. My mother, being relatively conservative, tried to combat my desires by allowing me to get my lobes pierced twice: before I began kindergarten and again before the start of middle school, but it wasn't enough. There was something about the piercing that always intrigued me-- partially because it was different, but mostly because it was forbidden-- and I had to have it. It was the summer before my sophomore year of ... read more

My new conch!

I've wanted my conch pierced for the past two years, and my parents have always been dead set against no piercings outside of the first two lobes, and nostril (my mother is the only one that approves of this one...). Anyways, at the beginning of the summer my best friend and I were going to get piercings together to celebrate sophomore year of college, and just because it's been three years since we've had anything pierced. I was planning on getting my nostril and my conch done, she wanted to add two more piercings on the bottom of her bellybutton. ... read more

Mediocre shops and boring piercings

For a few months, I had decided to get my earlobes pierced for a second time because my mother asked me to stop stretching my first ones. When I finally got up the nerve to ask her, she didn't really have a problem with it as long as I paid. I looked up the two piercing studios in my area and Ink Link was the only shop that had reviews on BME, and they sounded promising. Also, I hadn't heard of them tattooing minors, unlike Devotion Tattoos. My mom finally took me today. We went to go eat Sonic first ... read more

Tunel domowym sposobem

Swojego pierwszego kolczyka zrobi³em 6 lat temu gdy chodzi³em do pierwszej klasy gimnazjum. Zrobi³em go bo ¿aden z klasowych kolegów nie mia³ kolczyków w ¿adnej czê¶ci cia³a. Do czasu. Kiedy nie by³em ju¿ jedynym w klasie który mia³ w uchu kolczyk zacz±³em kombinowaæ co by zrobiæ a¿eby ten dodatek wygl±da³ nieco inaczej ni¿ wszystkie, zacz±³em wiêc nosiæ w uchu agrafkê lub zak³ada³em ringi bez zapiêcia wk³adaj±c je przez chrz±stkê do loba co wygl±da³o nieco bardziej indywidualnie ni¿ zwyk³y kolczyk. Ale jak to w szkole wszyscy zaczynaj± ciê ma³powaæ. Da³em sobie spokój. Wyci±gn±³em kolczyka. Bez kolczyka chodzi³em oko³o 3 lat. Ale ... read more

My industrial experience

About 1 month before my 17th birthday I had really wanted to get something pierced for the longest time, but my father is very conservative, but my mom doesn't care about anything I do to my own body. I had originally asked to get my tongue pierced but that was shot down the second "tongue pier-" came out of my mouth. So I went back to the "drawing board" or in other words bmezine.com. When I saw the industrial pictures I knew that's what I had to get. I showed my mom she was shocked at first but she said ... read more

How To Not Hate Yourself

It was a sticky summer day in Detroit, Michigan when I saw my first industrial piercing. My best friend, her family, and I had headed down to a massive electronic music festival hosted every year by the city to experience the loud, pulsing music, break dancing, and, of course, the thousands of people that attend the festival. The five of us were hand in hand, weaving our way through the crowd when I saw something that, at age twelve, disturbed and confused me: a college-aged guy with a huge spike going through the cartilage on both sides of his ear. ... read more
