Do It Yourself Tragus

Now, let me start off by saying, it is never a good idea to do what I did. Ever. EVER. But, on to my stupid accomplishment. One night, at 1 am in the morning, listening to music, I started to feel inspirational. I had felt upset all day, and had cried a bit (ok, a LOT) so I wanted to start the new day out on a good note. What do I do but run around for a sewing needle? Instead of finding a precious sewing needle (and this should STILL not be used! But it's thicker, and more solid. ... read more

My Journey That Led Me To The Infamous Industrial Piercing

It all started when my friend sent me a picture of her new cartilage piercing. It was a cute little piercing with a CBR, and some sort of obsession started forming in my mind. I’ve always thought cartilage piercings were cute, but I wanted something a little edgy along with the cuteness. After looking through tons of image searches on Google, I decided an industrial piercing was right for me. The beginning of this obsession started on the brink of the Snowpocolapse 2011 in OK and having so much free time out of school leads to plenty of time to ... read more

Double Tragus

I was always enchanted by tragus piercings and had decided that when I got the money I was going to get one; that was until I found pictures of a vertical tragus. The pictures I first saw were not true vertical tragus piercings, but surface piercings in the side burn area. Either way, I was in love. But as my excitement grew about getting this piercing I realized that my anatomy may not be suited for it. I went down to Immaculate Piercing (which is, by the way, freaking fantastic) to get a consult. Anna, the piercer, told me that ... read more

My industrial piercing

In January, I turned 18. So, I decided to add another piercing to my "collection." Already having the standard first and second holes, and an upper and lower helix, I thought it was time to find a more unique piercing. I did some research and landed on the industrial piercing. I had heard that it could be a painful piercing, but I figured I could suck it up. I had planned on the industrial piercing to be a present to myself, but my mother insisted on paying for it :) I asked my friend Brittney to come with us and ... read more

My Industrial

I have been obsessed with piercings since I was fourteen. Now I am only seventeen; however, since being 14 I have acquired ten more piercings-four of which were retired. And on December 23, 2010 I got my left industrial and tragus pierced. I have wanted my industrial done for quite a long time and it was finally time to get it after having enough research done. So the day of I was extremely nervous like I usually am right before a piercing. We went pretty last minute too which insured that I wouldn't chicken out. I had to have my ... read more

Double Helix, Double Pain

I've had an interest in body modification for a few years. After my first holes, I was satisfied for a few years. When I was 14, I fell in love with double lobes. After much pleaing, bargaining, and persistance, I got my second pair of piercings at 15. However, I wanted more. I set my eyes on a double helix after seeing a picture of a woman with a CBR on the bottom hole, and a stud on top. It was beautiful. So I set about trying to convince my parents to let me get my cartilage pierced. My mom ... read more

A Body Modificationand Bonding Weekend

For the longest time a friend of mine, Natalie, has been saying we should meet properly (we met on an online forum) and on a split second decision three weeks ago we set a date for a fun weekend. During those three weeks we decided we should get a tattoo to mark the occasion – just something small and a little random - a puzzle piece with rainbow colours “washing” through it. I got it all booked in with a local artist in my home town of Stamford called Adi Earl (of Earl's Tattoo Studio). Three days before Natalie was ... read more

Bloody Conch

I decided to get my second conch pierced recently. The first one is over a year old and has healed nicely. After getting the first one done I waited 6 months to change it to a ring. I waited long enough for the piercing to heel and not form any scars. The ring looked really pretty. However after some time I felt that my look wasn’t very symmetrical. I wanted the piercing on my other ear too. So I decided that I’d go back to a post and get my I went to my local shop and by chance got ... read more

One Piercing, Two Piercing...Second Holes Anyone?

Hi. My name is Kitty. And I've wanted my second holes done since I was eleven. Now, I know what you're thinking--this is some boring, stupid, typical little girl writing about her wittle eaw piewcing...right? Not so much--you have to know the story BEHIND the second holes. I first pierced my second holes when I was eleven--and my cartilage as well. (That's a different story, however...) I took them out three days later when my mom noticed them at McDonalds. She wasn't angry--and I could have easily kept them in. But I was a goodie two shoes and that was ... read more

Ear Stretching Journey

My stretching journey started when I was 10 years old, one day while playing in the local park I saw the owner of the local piercing shop and was mesmerized by his 2" ears, it was then that i new what i wanted. The next day i went down to "cosmetics plus" with my brother and purchased five 14g CBR's, and since i didn't know anything about stretching i assumed that i would be able to stretch just by putting many small gauge rings into the same hole. After about a month i had managed to get them all in ... read more
