I'm FINALLY pierced!

ef = "/cgi-bin/vote/votec.cgi?/pierce/02-tongue/990615/tongfinl.html"> BACKGROUND My tongue piercing experience started about three years ago when I was about 15. I heard and saw tongue pierces and knew that I wanted one, and I wanted one badly. It was definately me. But, I also knew there was no way in hell my parents would ever let me pierce my tongue, and since the laws in California say you have to be 18 to get pierced or have your parents consent (which I didn't have), I wasn't going to get pierced until I was 18. I never told my parents I wanted to ... read more

From a piercer instead of a piercee - Story

ef = "/cgi-bin/vote/votec.cgi?/pierce/02-tongue/990615/tongpirc.html"> Of course though, this is not to be used at all as a how-to guide. I don't say everything I do is completely right, another piercer might use different methods that work just as well. But what I use is what works best for me and what I believe in. If your piercer uses something different, he isn't wrong and neither am I. Just don't use this as a way to find out how to pierce people. Please give me some slack on this story. This is the first story of its kind on BME as far ... read more

my first "real" body piercing

ef = "/cgi-bin/vote/votec.cgi?/pierce/02-tongue/990615/tongreal.html"> I finally did it. I got my first "real" body piercing. Sure I have my left lobe pierced at 10 gauge and I will soon redo the right ear as well. The school I go to does not allow any student to have any jewelry in their piercing. So when I go to school I have to take out the 10 gauge captive bead ring. I had the right ear matching the left but had to take it out and the hole closed up. But now I have a piece of steel through my tongue. I have ... read more

Conservative Tongue Piercing

ef = "/cgi-bin/vote/votec.cgi?/pierce/02-tongue/990615/tongcon.html"> Well, where do I begin. Oh yea, I come from a very conservative family and I'm the last person you yould think would have his tonue pierced. I'm a successful manager of a major electronics retailer and present myself in a very professional way. Well, away from the store I run, I'm not at all a "business man" type. No, I'm not tattooed all over or pierced up and down (not that that's a bad thing), but I'm just your average ordinary 19 year old guy. Anyway, down to the piercing. Back in 1995, when I was ... read more

Kat's Tongue: A Tale of Clamp-Free Piercing

ef = "/cgi-bin/vote/votec.cgi?/pierce/02-tongue/990615/tongkat.html"> One chilly day in April 1999, I decided that I wanted my tongue pierced. At first, it was a vague notion in the back of my head, but after a while, it became apparent that I was actually going to go through with it. Like everything, I don't proceed unless I am sure that I know exactly what to expect. I surfed the web, spoke with people that had the guts to get it done before me, and I even called several places that do piercings and gave them the third degree. I even called my dentist ... read more

Once . . . Twice . . . Three Times a Piercee

ef = "/cgi-bin/vote/votec.cgi?/pierce/02-tongue/990615/tongmeg.html"> I think some of the most meaningful body modification results from someone choosing to mark life achievement with piercing or tattoos. To commemorate a life turning point or celebration with body-art is so much more significant than wandering into a downtown ink shop on a Friday night and picking some flash off the wall on a whim. There's nothing wrong with an impulsive modification, but it seems more special to me if there's a reason behind the mod. I got my eyebrow pierced between my first and second semesters in college, at age 18. I went to ... read more

my precious tongue

ef = "/cgi-bin/vote/votec.cgi?/pierce/02-tongue/990615/tongsp.html"> saturday, may 8, 1999. i was at my boyfriend's that day. i wasn't planning on getting my tongue pierced that day. i'd wanted it for 5 years now - ever since i'd seen the first pierced tongue i've ever seen, but it wasn't planning on getting it done then. it's about 9:30 pm when we walk into the place. there's no one else in there when we go in and only two people come in while i'm deciding. he sits down and looks through a magazine and i look at some of the art on the walls. ... read more

my fabulous tongue piercing...

ef = "/cgi-bin/vote/votec.cgi?/pierce/02-tongue/990615/tongfab.html"> it was a while ago that i first found the wonderful world of piercing. i was very interested, but my mom, being the good, law-abiding, straight-edge woman she was, wouldn't hear of it. then, last summer? she let it go all to hell. heh. she got a tattoo. now, not any pretty, girlie-typical tattoo.... a cattle skull. so i figured, here was my loophole. my plan went into the works. she could no longer refuse my interests in piercings. i was thrilled. after much begging, pleading, yelling, crying, and more of the like, we settled it. well, ... read more

My WeB Piercing

ef = "/cgi-bin/vote/votec.cgi?/pierce/02-tongue/990615/tongwebn.html"> It all started when I wanted my tongue pierced, but due to my family could not have it done. However, I always look for alternatives and after looking around the site I found the tongue web pictures, I had a friend who had a ring in her webbing but had to remove it due to infection (she had done it as a self pierce).... But I found that a barbell could be used.. I loved it. I could be original, have something to amuse myself with, and conceal it from my parents. Living in Southern California, it ... read more

My grossly swollen tongue.....

ef = "/cgi-bin/vote/votec.cgi?/pierce/02-tongue/990515/tongross.html"> I would like to die knowing that I have experienced everything I possibly can, good and bad. I want to die knowing that my life was worth living and that I did everything I could to make it as rich and enjoyable as possible. Why pierce my tongue? Why pierce anything? Everybody has their own reasons, my reason is simple, my body is my canvas, I can decorate it anyway I see fit. I am the only one who is really affected by what I do to it and I am the only one who can decide ... read more
