Hooked on Piercing

it all started six years ago when I was a senior in high school. I made a deal with my mother that if I got certain grades that I could get my ear pierced. I made the grades and I was soon on my way to the closest mall to get my first earring (I didn’t know then the things I know now or I would have found a good piercer.) I lived in small town and even thought it was 1993 I had never really heard of body piercing. Anyway time went on and I graduated high school that ... read more

Higher My Conchesness

e start of by saying that anybody that is into piercing by culture, style, beauty, or aestetic, think long and hard before you get your conches pierced or streched because it is very intense. Ive have to say it is the most painfull or close to the painfullest piercing out there. I started asking a lot of people I saw on the street, some friends,and also reading bme articles. I was really thinking why do I want it and also if I want it forever. Ive decided one day that it's something I would love to have for the rest ... read more

I BLAME the VET entirely! (Tragus, Logarth, Eyebrow)

RST PIERCE (EYEBROW)/b As I was discussing a holistic approach to controlling Jacob's (my gorgeous cocker spaniel) terribly frequent seizures (probably brain tumour related [*pout*]) with the vet, I couldn't help but fixate on the silver hoop adorning her 'brow. I'd first seen one six years previous and had considered getting it done back then but never gave it much serious thought. As my poor pooch's condition worsened, I found myself visiting the vet almost weekly. This was enough to push me over the edge... I NEEDED A PIECE OF METAL BARBARICALLY INSERTED THROUGH MY EYEBROW TOO! I briefly discussed ... read more

first cartilage piercing

17 y/o male, from Toronto, ontario. On friday i got my first piercing done & I loved it! I had wanted to get a piercing for a while now, but pressure from some very tight friends & family stalled me for a while. despite being told how much of a "fag" i would look like, and how gay earrings were (please pity me because as you can see im surrounded by meat-heads) my urge to get this piercing couldnt be held back. I went to the tattoo & piercing studio that friends had recommended to me on friday morning. I ... read more

Lobe Piercing and Pain

rst thing is that I'm a wuss. I'm 17 and I've had my ear lobes pierced 3 times before this experience but they were done with a gun so they had a back on them to irritate my ears. Not to mention I seem to be allergic to both gold and titanium! So, I had to let them close all 3 times. Well, I decided that I was going to get them done with a needle so they could put a circular barbell in. My friend had it done last year and she told me that it only hurt a ... read more

Self Done Cartilage

one Cartilage Peircing by Colin "Wilykat" Bolton Aug 9th 1999 wilykatsden@hotmail.com Before doing this I had read experiences all over BME and looked up on proper procedure. Sterilizing things etc.. I already had my lower left lobe done. Peirced with a gun about 5 months ago jsut because I was 18 and figured it'd be fun. Big deal. So after going through BME and checking out all sorts of other things to do I finally decided on what I'm going to do with my ears. Wanting a upp cartilage pericing on my left was a goal. Then an industrial on ... read more

The tregus and the apprentice

ired of seeing everyone with bellys pierced, everyone with noses pierced, everyone one with eyebrows pierced and especially everyone with the cartlidge at the top of their ear pierced. So I decided to go stides above everyone I know and I went to get my cartlidge peirced. Once I got my tounge pierced.. that just wasnt enough. I already have three tattoos and my boyfriend has his eyebrow and tounge pierced "two in each". And the way my boyfriend sees it is 'You can take a piercing out when you get sick of it... but you cant take a tattoo ... read more

Oooh, it's called a Tragus

e is Suzy. I am 19 and I live in a place called Dover in the UK. My Tragus is the first thing I've had pierced properly, with a needle, not a gun. I'll tell you the story. Well, I've seen loads of people with their Tragus pierced in London, and I decided that it's a really good place to have a ring. So, last week, I went to the place where I had both my tattoos done, because the people are really nice and I knew I'd be in safe hands. The person doing the piercing that day was ... read more

Two Daiths, Two Cities

ch of 1999, I went on a weekend trip to the Big Apple with a group of high school artists. We did the normal "tourist-y" things like the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, and the Empire State Building. We also did "art-sy" things such as spend time at the MOMA and SoHo. But after SoHo, there was a wilder side of the New York experience. A friend and I walked over to Greenwich Village with a mission- so be pierced. He wanted a second helix piercing and I wanted my tongue pierced. We came upon a shop called Whatever which ... read more

My industrial

ed something original. I already had a normal little loop in the cartilage and then it got popular. Then I got a septum, which is cool, but not really noticable with a retainer. So I was looking around BME(my Bible) and came upon the almighty industrial. Its name just makes me feel powerful. So, like always, I read the experiences and looked at the picutres and thought and thought about it til I decided that I was going to get it. One of the major factors was that I was in Hawaii and I wanted to get something to really ... read more
