My first nose piercing.

I was only fifteen when I got this done, and it was my first facial piercing, so I didn't really care what I got. So you shouldn't take this story as an example of what to do when choosing a piercing, but as an example of how stupid and thoughtless I was. Now, onto the story. As I said, I was only fifteen and I was itching for a piercing somewhere other than my ears. So I casually approached the subject with my mom. Now, this went a lot smoother than I had hoped because I discovered my mom has ... read more

True Love - a story of the high nostrils

One day, about a year ago I was browsing BME as usual, and I stumbled across the high nostril piercings. Instantly I was head over heels in love with the piercing. I had to have it, but I knew I would have to wait, as I clearly never have enough money for piercings with no job at all. So for a year, every month I would come back and study them, read up on them, and fall more and more in love with them. Then about 4 months ago I decided, that for my birthday, I would call them my ... read more

My experience with the nose piercing

I waited a long time, almost a year, to make the decision of making my nose piercing. It was three years ago, in june 2005. The piercing was between the eyes.It was a challenge for me, I tested my bravery, because I was scared about the physical pain. Now I've got it no more, because of an accident, so be careful, tighten up well the "balls" of your piercing if you don't want to lose it during sleep. After taking three exams to the university, in Italy, I decided to reward myself making the piercing I wanted for so long. ... read more

The life, death, and resurrection of my nose ring

What an exciting weekend I had! I finally got my nostril re-pierced! A little history: This is my 12th piercing; it's a redo. I had my left nostril pierced a few months after I turned 18. I was all, "Like omg I want my nose pierced, so like totally cute!" and made a pact with my friend at the time to get ours together. Well, she got hers without me, but I still wanted it so I braved the needle for the very first time. That's right, folks, first ever real needle piercing! (I had both my lobes twice and ... read more

My Christmas Suprise

WARNING: This experience should not be copied. I was rash and stupid to have a random friend pierce a very delicate area. I would not recommend others to do as I have done. It all started about a year and a month ago, when I decided to get my septum pierced. Naturally you would just run down to your friendly neighborhood tattoo parlor to get it done, but I had a few problems with that. I was only seventeen, my parents were dead set on not letting me get any facial piercings while I was under their roof, and I ... read more

That thing inside my nose... Septum Piercing !

Since August I had been thinking about getting a septum. The more I thought about it, the more I wanted it. And eventually I was sure it would fit me, that it would look good on me, so I decided I would go for it - within a couple of months. I was sick and I wanted to give my body some more rest before getting a new piercing. In November I couldn't resist the urge any more! I wanted something new, I needed something new, something for myself. Even though my body is still quite weak, I just thought ... read more

My 4gauge Septum.

So about a month ago I decided the time was right for another piercing, the question was what piercing would go well with my others and also what would suit my face. I eventually decided that a large gauge septum was what I wanted. After a few weeks of trying and failing to save the money I needed to pay for the piercing I asked a friend who owed me a favor to pay instead, luckily for me she said yes. A few days later we went to Vogue body piercing to book an appointment. When I told Lori the ... read more

Septum Piercing

A little over a week ago I got my septum pierced. Something I'd been wanting for some time, but it took me a while to actually gather up the courage to go through with it. So when I did, I was unfortunately disappointed by my regular piercer. She did not want to do it, because of problems she'd previously had with the piercing. It kind of made me doubt whether I really wanted it enough to face the possible risks. But I still could not get the idea out of my head and started looking for other piercing shops in ... read more

Its worth it

OK so, I always thought the septum would be the last thing I'd get pierced, I always thought of it as a little absurd in a way and told myself I would never get it done. But as time when on, I found myself to love it, and soon I'd want to get it done so bad. I was supposed to get my eyebrow pierced for my 16th birthday, but as time went on I didn't get the chance to, so for my 17th birthday which had just pasted I decided on getting my septum pierced. Now where I live ... read more

Second nostril - your face is wonkier than you think.

My first nostril piercing, on the right, was done by myself when I was sixteen. I was, and still am a big fan of doing my own piercings, as long as I know I've got the resources and skill to do it in a sanitary manner with good results (don't do it if you don't have access to proper, sterilised piercing needles, etc.). I wanted to wear a ring in it eventually, and I like a slightly heavier look, so I chose to do the original piercing at 1.6mm. As I was still at school at the time I used ... read more
