Conch, Tragus, and Anti-tragus Piercing

ch, Tragus, and Anti-tragus Piercing Last week (Feb 25) I got my helix pierced (story already on BME). Piece of cake, a bit tricky to clean so got a bit infected but this is subsiding now. A couple of days later I got a conch piercing by Phil again. Although the helix pierce was easy and relatively pain-free I had nerves beforehand. Not this time! I went in and they were pretty quiet so I didn't have to wait at all for this one, just five minutes while he got prepared. Hurt a bit, but no real problem and it ... read more

Ear Stretching Experience

Stretching Experience My stretching experience, thus far. I first got interested in stretching my ear lobe after seeing a friend of mine with a 2-gauge acrylic plug in his ear. I had previously seen stretchings of an inch or so, and Masaii tribal stretchings of more than 3 inches, and thought that they were sort of tasteless, but when I saw my friend, I was immediatly enthralled. My only hesitation was, "what will it look like when I'm 50 years old and no longer have anything in the hole?" and "will I be able to get jobs with a half-inch ... read more

More ear piercings...

e ear piercings... Well, my ears are finished. For the moment. I now have six piercings on the left side and three on the right side. No particular reason why there's twice as many on the left, but I had a bizarre conversation with some one who pointed out to me that the way I had my ears pierced made me 33% gay. I pointed out to him that his statement made him 100% stupid. Some of the piercings I've already written about and are already on the BME (helix, tragus, antitragus, lower conch -all in the left ear). I'd ... read more

8ga --> 2ga Ear Piercing

--> 2ga Ear Piercing 2 weeks ago I had my ears repierced, as my original (gun) pierces were unsuitable for stretching. My piercer, Danny, suggested an initial needle pierce at 8 ga, followed by an immediate stretch to 2 ga. So I went down to Polymorph (Newtown, Australia), and I was shown the 2 ga plugs I was soon to wear - I got a little apprehensive, they looked so huge. But I decided to go through with it, and the plugs were put in the autoclave. Danny marked my ears, commenting on their huge stretching potential :) Then he ... read more

Snug Experience

ence Date: Tue, 01 Oct 1996 02:05:41 -0400 From: Luis G. SNUG EXPERIENCE OK well I was at the Philly R.A.B. Munch and was itching to get pierced once more. I wanted a "hard core" cartilage piercing (as I call em). I already had two daiths, so I wanted something that is not very common, as more and more people in my area (DC) were getiing Daiths. So I decided to get a Snug I had fallen in love with the pics of the snug on BME, so I said "I gotta have one". Went in and talked to Jim ... read more

Snug Experience at Phoenix Body Piercing

g Experience at Phoenix Body Piercing Snug Experience at Phoenix Body Piercing 1996 has been a big year for getting piercings for me: my nipples in June; tongue in September; transverse lobe in October and to finish out the year, a pair of snugs done last night by Christophe Deal at Phoenix Body Piercing. Chris and I arranged a trade-out for the snugs in which I gave my professional services as a typesetter for his as a piercer. I think we're both happy with the results. I love the barter system! This was the first time that Chris had done ... read more

Heidi's Tragus story

di's Tragus story The following is taken verbatim from my co-op's house journal (except for anything in italics). The story was written to be read by my 12 housemates, who were for the most part unfamiliar with bodypiercing at all. I planned for the tale to be unclear as to it's subject until the very end. Try reading it from the perspective of someone who has never heard of piercing before. This was my very first pierce, so I wasn't all that familiar with it myself before I went. My tale of Monday, Jan 2nd (1995) Okay, I showed up ... read more
