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

"Welcome to the bad-ass club." Septum Experience

Prior to getting my septum pierced, I didn't have a whole lot experiences getting pierced. I had my ears gunned when I was 4. I discovered bmezine at age 13 and decided to stretch my lobes. I got down to 2g before my dad noticed and made me take them out! My last piercing was a transverse lobe piercing done not long after I turned 18. A few weeks after removing the transverse lobe piercing because the skin seemed to be thinning, my friend had sent me a text message asking me if I wanted to go to a local ... read more

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

My Nostrils

Sometime when I was thirteen, I realized I wanted to get my nostril pierced. It started out as a fanciful idea; I'd see someone passing me on the street who had one and I'd automatically gape and stare in my mind. The way that a little jewel sat on the nose just seemed so lovely and – strangely enough – cozy! There was just something about this piece of jewelry situated where it was that really drew me in. But of course, being so young, the idea that one day I would have a hole in my nose was simply ... read more

Long and Painful (the process, not the piercing!)

The decision to get my septum pierced was a long and arduous one, much more painful than the actual piercing itself. At this point I had my bellybutton, nostril, lip, and 2 holes in each lobe, one set of which are currently at 0g. I've been working on getting my tattoos rather than being focused on piercings lately, but one of my co-workers this past summer talked every day about getting her other nostril done, and I suppose it just instilled the bug in me again. I think most people reading this have probably had that piercing bug a few ... read more
