Anti-Tragus

i-Tragus Friday, April 11 was a great day in the history of what is turning out to be Bobby's ear project. Granted, there are only two pieces of jewelry, (industrial with a 14 gauge 1-3/8 inch SS barbell, and my new anti-tragus with a 7/16 inch 14 gauge Niobium CBR) but I've got the itch, and so it seems that I'm just getting started. Anyway, I was looking for pictures for a while before hand of anti-tragus piercings with little luck, and of course, after I finally head down to Perforations and did it, BME is updated that very same ... read more

Large Upper Ear Piercing Done Using A Dermal Punch

Ear Piercing Done Using A Dermal Punch Large Upper Ear Piercing Done Using A Dermal Punch Stretching lobes is currently very popular, and is a very easy thing to do. However, stretching the cartilage in the upper ear for large holes is nearly impossible and would leave a very deformed ear, often due to keloiding. To get nice large gauge piercings through upper ear cartilage a good way is to use a dermal punch, which is essentially a circular razor blade (like a really good hole-punch) which can easily remove a circle of tissue. It should be noted that when ... read more

Switching to the role of the piercer

tching to the role of the piercer My ex-boyfriend was rather unadorned and unhappy with his condition. For quite some time he had wanted piercings but was unable to get them because he was a minor and his mother would not consent. So, lacking much of an alternative, he turned to me. I was planning a trip to Atlanta and he asked me to return with a piercing needle and jewelry so that i could pierce his earlobes. I came back prepared to pierce when he finished performing in the community play (it would be rather difficult to portray an ... read more

Cartilage Piercing Experience

tilage Piercing Experience Cartilage Piercing Experience Part 1 After reading BME and BME/Extreme for quite some time now and enjoying them so much, I thought I'd contribute what some may think is a routine experience. To me it wasn't. It is now almost 5 months after my first tatoo, my first venture into body mods besides the common double pierced lobes. My daughter and I both decided we wanted a cartilage pierce and would do it together, sort of as a "mother-daughter thing". She is 15 and is confined to a wheelchair due to cerebral palsy so I often check ... read more

Mr. Normal Suburbia

Normal Suburbia My experience into piercing, beyond the average ear gun procedures, is pretty limited. I had my left ear done twice about two years ago. I thought two holes in my ear was pretty cool and about as far as "Mr. Normal Suburbia" would go, especially at 40 plus. But for some reason I was always looking for a heavier, more substantial look. And those dainty little earrings sold in department and jewelry stores just didn't do it. Well after many of those thicker "looking" earrings I decided to call the local piercing store. He explained to me that ... read more

Helix Pierce Experience

ix Pierce Experience Helix Pierce Experience Ever since having my first ever piercing about a month ago (my tongue), I've been thinking what to get done next. I've heard tons of horror stories about the guy who did my tongue since having it so I decided not to go there again (Renegades in Dundee, Scotland). I'd been told that there was a really experienced piercer elsewhere in Dundee so I thought I'd check it out. The shop is basically a tattoo shop (as most are in Britain) called Graeme's Tattoo Studio. I'd been there once before to get a tattoo, ... read more

Keloid excision experience

oid excision experience Keloid excision experience Hi everybody... In keeping up with my tradition of just talking about my nasty keloids, I just wanted to let everybody know that I had the excised yesterday at my plastic surgeon. For those who need a little refreshing, or who are relatively new to r.a.b. (welcome!), I had developed a large keloid on my earlobe from a gun piercing when I was 14. A few years later, it had developed into a full-on keloid (the piercing never really healed), with the keloid on the front really red and itchy, with the keloid on ... read more
