The Industrial that refused to heal and the rook that refused to stop bleeding

ef = "/cgi-bin/vote/votec.cgi?/pierce/01-ear/990801/earind4.html"> A few years ago while in Manhattan, I stopped in at Venus Designs to get two piercings - a rook and an industrial. I had NEVER seen an industrial in person - only a few times in photographs. I wanted it specifically because it was fairly rare and extremely cool. The rook was also chosen for the same reasons. I did not have an appointment...... even so I only had to wait about 30 minutes. My piercer was George, who was doing a guest stint. He is from a shop in Australia that has a sister shop ... read more

ear project: IT STARTED WHEN I WAS 15

ef = "/cgi-bin/vote/votec.cgi?/pierce/01-ear/990801/earprj.html"> My friend had her navel pierced. She came to school with it and i asked her how she did it. she did it herself while talking on the phone with a safety pin. So i thought to myself, hey that sounds cool. So that night i went home and pierced it. It took about 30 minutes or so, with a small safety pin, and it looked like crap (partially because i have a big belly :) and partially because i didn't watch myself do it so it came out crooked and would have eventually migrated because it ... read more

Industrial @ Pleasurable NJ

ef = "/cgi-bin/vote/votec.cgi?/pierce/01-ear/990801/earind3.html"> I am 15 years old, and never had anything pierced before. My parents are really super conservative, and would never let me get anything pierced. They almost flipped on me when I dyed me hair red without telling them. After being a pain in the ass long enough, they finally gave in and said I could get my ear pierced when I was 16. There plan was to try to put it off long enoughso i would forget, but when the time came around, I remembered. I had wanted an industrial for quite some time now, but ... read more

my first piercing

ef = "/cgi-bin/vote/votec.cgi?/pierce/01-ear/990801/earind.html"> So I decided that I wanted to get pierced... It was my 18th birthday (finally!) and I knew exactly what I had wanted...an industrial piercing. I had thought about it for weeks, spent countless hours staring at my ear, fantasizing about what it would look like, if I should get my left or right ear pierced or what. So on the night of my 18th birthday, my friend Anson took me out to get it done. I knew of a few places to get it done, but I wanted to check them out first. So I went ... read more

Lobe Stretching

ef = "/cgi-bin/vote/votec.cgi?/pierce/01-ear/990715/earlbstr.html"> One day, after getting my ears re-pierced at Urban Xchange in Virginia Beach, VA, there was this one guy who walked in with what appeared to be huge holes in his lobes. This was the first time I have ever seen this type of body modification. Since I had never seen something like that before, I couldn't figure out how he can get his holes so big. Since I've always been a person who likes to be different than everyone else, I took some interest in this type of "thing"( I had no idea what it was ... read more

A 17 year old's new piercing; an industrial.

ef = "/cgi-bin/vote/votec.cgi?/pierce/01-ear/990715/earind2.html"> Piercings are my passion! Getting pierced has to be one of my favorite things to do. All together I've had six holes in each ear, but had to heal up three cartilage piercings due to infection. I also have my navel and tongue pierced. I am on summer vacation now so I thought that this would be the perfect time to get pierced again. Since I am still in high school I can't get any visible facial piercings like the lip ring I want and since I'm not quite 18 yet I can't get my nipples pierced. ... read more

Inner Conch: For the really brave - or stupid

ef = "/cgi-bin/vote/votec.cgi?/pierce/01-ear/990715/eariconc.html"> For one, I am not a wimp. I have my nipples, navel, and nine ear piercings, of these which include a 2 ga. ear stretch and ear cartilage piercing. I love to get pierced, even to the point that I enjoy getting blood drawn. I had seen a picture on BME of an inner conch piercing, in which the person had a claw poking through the ear, and all I could think is how cool the claw looked and how much I wanted it. I didn't want to have too much stuff in my ears, because I ... read more
