Third times a charm

Well after months, maybe even years, I finally got up the courage to get my tongue pierced. At 33 yrs old, I decided it was now or never! I drove up to a reputable tattoo shop in my town and spoke with the piercing apprentice. I told her I was thinking about getting it done, but I was VERY nervous. She told me if I wanted to do it, it's not to dwell and make myself so nervous, just do it. I agreed, signed the papers and I was on my way. I had done some research, watched a ton ... read more

glad I had it done

On Friday the 15th of August 2008, I decided to get my tongue pierced. I've wanted it done for a long time but could not persuade my mother to let me have it done. Most of the girls in work with me have got it done and I asked a lot of questions, that was then I decided I wanted it done for definite. After long arguments with my mother she finally let me have it done. I decided to have a big meal before I went in knowing after long nights of research on the internet that I will ... read more

Snake eyes Take 2

Okay, I had gotten my Industrial Bar done in July at the infamous John's Tattoo Shop in Islip, Long Island and since then I had been wanting for another piercing. So I searched around the web looking for different piercings instead of something someone else in school would have, and I came across surface piercings. They seemed pretty sick but as I read on, healing and taking care of it would've been a pain in mine. So I kept looking. One of my girls had the snake eyes done and they looked so cute on her! So that was it, ... read more

First piercing a success!

OK, let me start off by saying that Ive wanted this piercing for probably about 3-4 years before I actually was able to go do it. For one, I didn't know much about tongue piercings or piercings in general most of that time and I'm not a person to just jump into something like that. So it was coming up on my 18th birthday and I started looking into piercing more and more seeing as my parents would never let me get something pierced so I had to wait. Originally I wanted to get double off center tongue piercings (Ive ... read more

Self-Repiercing Tongue

I've been looking on different sites, mainly BME, for stories about repiercing your own tongue. I was unable to find anything about self-REpiercing, so I decided I would just do it and share my story in case anyone else was considering this. I had my tongue pierced about 8 months ago, but had to take it out 5 months ago because someone snitched on me for it. You see, in the Marine Corps, or any other branch of US Military for that matter, any body piercing on a male is unauthorized and therefore illegal to have. I loved my tongue ... read more

Finally!!

I remember when I was nine years old, I used to sit at home with my mum looking through the Argos catalogues and seeing the tongue bars and body jewelery. I used to sit there and say "thats what I'm having when I get mine pierced". My mum would just laugh, I suppose she thought I was joking but I wasn't. She realised that when I came home from "school" one day with my tongue pierced. As I walked into the studio it was really nerve racking and I was violently shaking, looking back it is actually quite humourous. As ... read more

Not as bad as I thought, but aftercare was terrible!

I should start this by mentioning that I have a few body piercings and am somewhat experienced in the body modification lifestyle. I got my first piercings at 3 and have been pierced 9 times (4 earlobe, 1 cartilage, nostril, bilateral nipples and navel) since then. I'd wanted a tongue piercing for a long time and finally decided to go through with it this past month. I was in the middle of a summer internship at a hospital when I made the decision to get my tongue pierced as soon as it ended. The day the internship ended, off to ... read more

After a year wait

Piercings and body modifications have always been my calling, ever since I was a little girl. I would go with my mom and sister to get their tattoos done and from an early age I always asked for piercings. But having the dad I have it was always an automatic no. But more to the point my parents split and I went out and got a tongue piercing about a year ago, and even though my mom approved of most body mods this one was a big "NO!". So I had to take it out, and you have no idea ... read more

New Venoms - Don't Jump...

Ok so here it goes.. first off, I got the center of my tongue pierced when I was 15, (self done, with a dry wall nail & mouth wash & bare hands..DON'T TRY AT HOME! ) but thats another story, today I'm going to tell you about my venoms ( two piercings, one on each side of the tongue ).. I went to Enchanted Dragon, located in Arnold Missouri, just browsing for another tattoo really.. Then the piercer asked if she could help me.. I thought for a moment & got the wild idea to say yah.. I'd like to ... read more

after 16 piercings, finally got the cahones to get my tongue pierced.

I'm writing in about my tongue piercing because for some funny reason, it was the one I was the most squikked out about and the one that has been the most interesting sensory journey for me so far(for reference - the others are 6 ear piercings, 2 nipple piercings, 1 navel, 1 hood, 6 labia). Mostly I got this one done because I've always been intrigued about my simultaneous phobia and fascination about the particular piercing, and life is about challenges, eh? Plus one of these days I might want to get all girly and match my tongue, navel, and ... read more
