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

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
