How I got pierced and learn living with it.

ef = "/cgi-bin/vote/votec.cgi?/pierce/01-ear/990501/earhow.html"> Below, you will find my body piercing story. It is not focusing on the body modification itself, but on the way I feel about it and how these feelings evoluated during the years. To some readers, the story sounds maybe a little bit naive, but I wanted to tell the story because I am convinced that there are other people with the same feelings. As I learned from own experience, recognizing your own feelings in someone elses story can be very revealing... When I was 9 years old there was a girl in my classroom which got ... read more


ef = "/cgi-bin/vote/votec.cgi?/pierce/01-ear/990501/tragusa.html"> On a rainy Saturday afternoon, my best friend and I were on a school trip in Bloomington, IL. We were antsy and I was irritated by the other people and it was time to shop. Our teacher took us to College Avenue and let us wander for an hour or two. We met up with some friends and wandered into a couple of shops... finding nothing we liked. My friend and I had talked earlier that week about getting pierced on Saturday. I had been wanting my eyebrow, tongue, or tragus pierced, but knew that I couldn't ... read more

Tragus and Helix Piercing

ef = "/cgi-bin/vote/votec.cgi?/pierce/01-ear/990501/traghelx.html"> I got my first lobe piercing when I was 5. Then my second when I was 12. Since then I added another piercing to my ears every year, I am now 18. Every time my mom would say " This is the last time and don't show your father". By the time I turned 18 i had 4 lobe in the left, 3 lobe in the right, 4 cartilage in both the left and right ears. Since I am now old enough to go without parent permission I went looking for a body piercer in my area ... read more


ef = "/cgi-bin/vote/votec.cgi?/pierce/01-ear/990501/miscstuf.html"> Well here is a story of how I got my nine body piercings, I'm almost 23, and when I turned 18, a few weeks after my birthday, I decided to get the bog standard ear piercing. I was living in Portsmouth in the UK at the time and went to all the piercing clinics I could find in the phone book, I talked with the piercers and looked at the jewellery and found out how some of the procedures were done. I finally settled on my opinion to be the best piercing clinic of the 5 available, ... read more

Inner Conch

ef = "/cgi-bin/vote/votec.cgi?/pierce/01-ear/990415/innercn.html"> When I started to think about getting pierced back in high school, I talked with my mom about it, and we agreed that I'd only pierce my ears or clothed body parts. (I respect and love my mom a lot, so it's never been an issue that she limited what I could pierce.) I had my navel and left tragus "done" over a period of about a year or so, for different reasons. I got my navel pierced mainly to spite my ex-boyfriend, who'd claimed that the navel was the only part of me he *never* wanted ... read more

Second times the charm - Rook piercing

ef = "/cgi-bin/vote/votec.cgi?/pierce/01-ear/990415/rook.html"> I had been dating a guy that hated piercings, and out of respect, I did not get any piercings during the 9 months we were dating. He never asked me to take mine out, but he would have freaked if I got any others. Recently, we broke up due to his immaturity, and I decided *why not* get that cartilage piercing that I had wanted... I was deciding between a normal upper cart, or a rook, and decided on the rook, since I've only seen a few people with it. After getting my paycheck the day before, ... read more

My Tragus gets punched...

ef = "/cgi-bin/vote/votec.cgi?/pierce/01-ear/990415/tragus.html"> Background I had had the top of my ear pierced back in the early 80's, before it was so passé, and I was tired of looking at something that I had, on the ear of every kid in this town who thought it was cool. I looked through the BME pages for something different, yet not too extreme, and I found it. I found out that that little goofy flap next to your earhole had a name (tragus), and that it could be pierced. This looked different, and exiting. So I started looking around, trying to see ... read more

BAD Catilige piercing...

ef = "/cgi-bin/vote/votec.cgi?/pierce/01-ear/990415/badcart.html"> I would like to start by saying that this was in NO way the piercer's fault. He did a wonderful job given what happened. I'm apprenticing under him at the moment, and he's one of the best I've seen. He did everything he was supposed to do, and stayed very calm. I just hope I can do the same when on the other end of the needle. It was my first day of appreticing (I won't name the store, so they won't lose buisness over this... IT WASN'T THEIR FAULT). The day started slow, and I had ... read more

Lots of Piercing stories

ef = "/cgi-bin/vote/votec.cgi?/pierce/01-ear/990401/elly.html"> New Zealand Tragus Piercing I had wanted to get my tragus pierced for *ages*, like three years or so. And just over two weeks ago (Friday October 9, 1998), I had the perfect opportunity. I was in Hamilton (a city close to the small town where I live), and I'd just been ten-pin bowling with my then-boyfriend. On the way to ten-pin, I noticed a piercing place... so while I was at bowling I was thinking about it. On the way back into the city, we got the taxi driver (who smelled of curry, lol) to drop ... read more

Ear piercing experience (industrial, etc.)

ef = "/cgi-bin/vote/votec.cgi?/pierce/01-ear/990401/earexp.html"> I had been working this shitty job at a credit union for a few months when they fired me the day before Xmas. I was furious! I had taken out my tongue bar, labret piercing, and nose ring for this job. The day after Xmas, still bummed out from getting fired, I decided to treat myself to some ear piercings. I had always been fascinated by cartilage piercings and decided that was what I was going to do. I wanted to go to the shop I always go to for piercings, but they were closed. I called ... read more
