Perfect 19th Birthday Present

Well for my past birthdays, ever since I was 16 years old, I have gotten some kind of body mod whether it is a tattoo or a piercing or last year I got both. Anyways, for my 19th birthday I decided I wanted to go with a nose piercing since I thought they were too cute and a very discrete facial piercing. I just recently moved to Springfield, MO and one of the first things I started doing was looking around for a good tattoo studio. I did a lot of searching around on the internet and talking to people ... read more

Offended Into Action

Offended into Action: My Septum Piercing Since I was quite young, I have felt the need to stand out and be different. To me, fitting in was extremely unappealing, and as I grew older, piercings revealed themselves as a beautiful way to identify myself as an individual. I turned eighteen in March of last year, and was psyched to finally be old enough to get poked without parental permission. Unfortunately, this was a large issue with me, considering my parents are rather hesitant of change, and I still live at home. As the months passed by, I fretted about which ... read more

Of course I'll get a cold three days after piercing my septum.

I should stop saying that I won't do something, or am not a big fan of it, or whatever. Because inevitably, about five minutes after I say, "Eh, not for me," I decide that it sounds like a really good idea. That's been the case for my lip piercing, my nostril piercing, and my stretched lobes, and, most recently, my septum. I have, and here it comes, never been a huge fan of septum piercings. That whole ring-through-the-nose thing just didn't do it for me -- I liked it all right on other people, but it was one of those ... read more

Must Pierce Nose Now!

So, I had never really been a fan of nose piercings. It looks good on some people, but not everyone. Then, one day I woke up and needed to pierce mine. Right away. It was the weirdest thing. So, I asked around at work to see if anyone wanted to make an outing of it and my good friend Jenn came with me. I tried to go to my old standby piercing place, Body Works Productions in Cleveland, but apparently they had closed down three years earlier. Luckily, I found one of the piercers at a new place in North ... read more

I'm bored, I guess I'll stretch my septum

My parents never let me stretch my ears when I was a kid, so I have never stretched any piercing until yesterday. I had my septum pierced when I was sixteen, but sadly that was a short lived piercing. I got it pierced again about a month or two ago at a 14 gauge and just let the retainer chill there until I got more cash or an Idea of what I wanted to do with it. The other day when I went to Infinite Body Piercing to take care of some business, I was looking at their jewelry and ... read more

A word of caution to those switching to a ring too early...

Ever since I had turned 18, I knew I was going to be getting a lot of piercings. I had already had 5 done previously and I felt it was time to add another. I only had my septum in my face, and I had always wanted a ring in my nose. So I thought that getting my nostril pierced would make a good addition. I decided to wait until a Thursday (Evolved has buy 1, get 1 Thursdays) so I could get another piercing for free, even if I ended up taking it out anyways. So I went with ... read more

A Septum Experience

So, about two and a half to three months ago, I decided to get a new piercing. I was not exactly sure on what to get so I thought about it. I thought about something that would help to enlighten my personal experience in the area of body modification. I thought for about two weeks when all of the sudden, it hit me, "I should get a nose piercing!" Then came the task of deciding WHAT nose piercing. I did not know exactly what on the nose could get pierced besides the nostril, so I asked my piercer. He told ... read more

A bad story, with a good ending

Last summer I decided I wanted my nose pierced. I had seen a lot of my friends get theirs done and I love the way that they looked. After some major convincing, my parents finally agreed to let me get it done and I was set to have it done on my vacation to Virginia Beach. When I used to live in Virginia Beach, I had all my other piercings done by the same guy at Rocks Body Shop at the beach. It seemed kind of obvious that thats where I would get my nose pierced. When I got to ... read more

Spur of the moment

I have been interesting in piercings for as long as I can remember. My parents are both very against tattoos and piercings to the point where when I was 14 my dad actually forbade me from going on BME because he thought I was obsessed. Haha well anyway. I had my first holes in my lobes done (to my dad's annoyance) when I was 9, my second holes at 12 (to my dad's extreme annoyance), my tragus at 16, and my belly button at 17. As anyone with piercings knows, it's addicting. I knew I wanted something new but also ... read more

Septum @ Classic Ink & Mods [11.06.08]

Nu vind ik de achtbaan de leukste attractie die een pretpark kan hebben. Het kan me niet hoog genoeg zijn, geen looping ga ik uit de weg en vooral de snelheid vind ik fantastisch. Maar ik ben blij dat de emotional-rollercoaster waar ik begin oktober 2007 op ben gestapt vaart is gaan minderen. Het kan natuurlijk altijd erger, maar persoonlijk vond ik het een vrij heftige periode. Iedere berg kende z'n dal, en de diepste dalen kwam ik net voor de tentamenperioden tegen. Over timing gesproken.. Maar ondanks dat mijn gedachten niet waren waar ze moesten zijn heb ik als ... read more
