DIY Nies

So first of all, I know that nies piercing is not so well-known, so I'm going to explain where it is. It is placed on that particular part of skin where your ear joins your head. (You can see pictures in the BME Gallery) The idea of getting nies has crossed my mind a long time ago, but actually i've never taken it seriously. I was thinking that it would be awesome to have such piercing, but I have never seen anyone with nies, so I thought that this is for a reason and it is very hard or painful ... read more

A life long stretching dream come true!

I’ll never forget when I first became interested in lobe stretching: I was sitting at my Great Grandma’s house in Michigan and she was watching some sort of documentary (I couldn’t have been more than 8 years old.) On this documentary, there were two old women who had hung weights from their ears their entire lives and their ear lobes had become long enough for them to wrap into their ponytails. I was amazed! After that experience, I was very interested in the cultural aspects of body modification. I did tons of research on a large variant of piercings, but ... read more

Pretty Inner Daith

I didn't have a big Christmas. However, I spent it with people I love so I am happy for that... But, I felt the need to get something for myself. A gift. I love the excitement before getting a new piercing. And the piercings themselves always make me feel happy. I searched online for pictures of unique ear piercings. I looked at photos of Rooks, but decided that wasn't what I wanted. Plus, that part of my ear is very small. While browsing Rooks I came across a photo of a Daith and fell in love. The piercing is just ... read more

i love my tragus

I have always liked ears and the variety of piercings that people get in them. So, it was no surprise when the tragus caught my eye. Two of my friends have their tragii pierced and a girl that just transferred from our school posted pictures of her fresh tragus adorned with the cutest heart shaped stud. I decided that I wanted my tragus pierced too and started to do my research. I even put together a PowerPoint to ask my mom, who told me years ago after my second lobe piercings "no more ear piercings". I pulled out all the ... read more

UFO orbital experience

Well first of all I know it's not a common piercing, so I feel I should explain what a UFO piercing is. Basically it's just an orbital that goes through the rook and forward helix. Here's a link to a picture of it from bmewiki: http://wiki.bmezine.com/index.php/UFO_Piercing Anyway I hadn't planned on getting a piercing that day. I was hanging out with a good friend of mine and we ended up at one of our favorite piercings shops, she was going to get her ears stretched. Well after I decided to show the piercer a photo of a piercing I was ... read more

Don't be afraid of the pain

Even though I only have 4 piercings now, over the last 15 years i have actually gotten pierced ... 17 times. I am a bit surprised now that I had to think back and do a count - it's a lot of times considering I only have 3 visible rings. They are in my upper cartilage. Some of them were repiercings and some of them are retired or I really only got them to experience getting them and the liberating feeling of doing something family, society but mostly my own inhibition had held me back from doing. Anyway, I want ... read more

Pierced, irritated, then healed rook

I decided to get my rook pierced the summer before my freshman year of college. This wasn't my first piercing by any means, but I liked the idea of a more "unusual" ear piercing, and it was during the summer, and I was with friends. I went to the Liberty Tattoo Co. (in Winston-Salem, NC), which was fine, but I wouldn't exactly recommend it. (Do yourself a favor and drive the 2 hours to Raleigh and go to Progress Piercing). It's a tattoo place, obviously, and they don't have a lot of jewelry, plus I found it to be dim, ... read more

My Journey to an 8g

Like many other young pre-teen girls, I had my ears pierced at some random store in a local mall (it wasn’t even a Claire’s, it was one of those kiosks in the middle of the hallway in the mall that did ear piercings) with the dreaded piercing gun. My parents and I just didn’t know better at the time. I had begged for my ears to be pierced for years, and I eventually had to quit playing soccer to get them done (which was fine because I was terrible at soccer anyway and I hated it). The trouble with them ... read more

The Luna - Partly Planned but Mostly Impulse

My right ear has been very bare compared to my left, for a a very long time and it had been getting on my nerves since it was pointed out to me so a few months back I asked friend and professional piercer Tomm at Pulse if he could think of anything interesting to do, he nodded and said he'd give a think and let me know if and when he thought of something weird and wonderful – especially as pain isn't a big deal to me and I tend to be able to heal really awkward piercings easily (with ... read more

DIY Snug

I was looking around BME and noticed that while there are a bunch of stories about people's snug experiences, they were all about professional piercings. Mine is a DIY job, so I was thinking, whoa.... am I the only one who has done this myself? And even if I'm not, I'm still the first person writing about it :) I have 10 DIY piercings (a couple of lobes that I have since stretched, a few helixes, a tragus, a tongue web, and a septum) and I love them all. Piercing myself is something that other people never seem to get, ... read more
