j's industrial @ Mythical Markings

>j's industrial @ Mythical Markings THE DESIRE i had been debating between (for some reason with me it's not so much a matter of it as it is a question of when and what) getting either a tragus or an industrial ever since i got my last piercings (both nipples, before that was my tongue and both lobes) when i saw some pics of industrials on BME i knew i had found it, this was just too cool to pass up. on thurday october 1st i went to Mythical Markings (BTW if you ever happen to be in knoxville stop ... read more

my lobe stretching

I was off to get a new piercing ( my septum to be exact) at NEXT body piercing and aftercare in Vancouver BC. One of the piercers there Jenn had done all my other piercings so of course she did this one. While she was putting the needle through my nose i noticed the big holes through her ears and i thought to myself "I have to have these". When i got home the first thing i did was log on to BME to find a way to do this. After looking at all my options i decided to do ... read more

LOBE PIERCING WITH 6g NEEDLE TO 4g TAPER

while back, after having my amp done, my nipples done (nice & deep), and a couple cuttings and brandings I decided to go for the craziest piercings of all...THE LOBES! I had been developing an interest in the whole stretching process, I had already done some on my nips and the idea of someday having pop can sized lobes was starting to really grow on me. So, with stretching in mind I talked it over with my piercer (Sage, previously of NNUBA, now working at the Underground in Van) and we began with the idea of starting at 10g. I ... read more

Dermal Punched Lobe

got my first piercing about a year and a half ago. Until recently, I have confined myself to non-visible piercings. (Insert the usual story about a conservative work environment here). I have been contemplating "coming out" with an ear piercing for about a year. I finally decided that it was time to get it done last week. I read the experiences and looked at the pictures of various ear piercings on BME several times during the decision period. I read all the healing and stretching information in the Piercing FAQ. And I lurked on RAB for about 9 months. I ... read more

Adding to the numerous ear stretching experiences......

started with a gunned hole and this big brass safety pin that I wanted to put in my ear. I tried numerous times to get it into my ear, without luck. So I asked some of the inhabitants of the RAB what I was doing wrong and they said that I just had to muscle it and use some lube. Lube? The idea had never struck me. So one night when my then girlfriend had dumped me on my ass out of the blue I had decided to drowned my sorrows in some, no a great deal, beer. That night ... read more

My Daith Experience @ Psycho Tattoo

g src="daith.jpg" width=240 height=300 align=right> I moved to Israel in September 1997. My best friend Kristi came to visit me in February 1998. One day she mentioned that she wanted another hole in her upper ear cartilage. I suggested that we go get our ears pierced together as a souvenir of her visit. I had found a great piercer (Guy at Psycho Tattoo in Tel Aviv), and he had done my nostril and both nipples. We went by the studio, and he did Kristi's ear first. She just wanted a simple cartilage pierce about halfway up her outer ear. It ... read more

DIY Outer Conch

ome time ago, I wrote about my own do-it-yourself nipple experiences. Now I have a new story to tell, about helping to pierce my neighbor's outer conch cartiledge. College is full of pierced people, from the people with the 'trendy' piercing (navel, eyebrow, and now tongue), to the people with a serious interest in modifying their bodies. Just the other night, I saw a guy in the elevator with stretched lobes fit with metal loops that his earrings hung from. It looked really cool! Anyway, my neighbor came over one day and asked for some alcohol so she could clean ... read more
