Always something there to remind me...

I have a confession to make: nostril piercings and myself? Probably not the best combination. The first time I had it done, it was with a gun...at a hair dressers...when I was 11...and by a girl who looked to be on substances that are considered illegal in Australia (I swear, I wasn't trying to break every body piercing "rule". I was uneducated!). That got ripped out a day later, on a towel. I shoved it back in, cried a bit, and loved it until it fell out in my sleep a few months later. The second time? One of my ... read more

Self Pierced Septum at 15

The story of how I pierced my own septum. I was 15 at the time and I'd had an aching for a septum piercing for a while, then one day a friend of mine had an idea that we should do it ourselves. My friend and I met up in town where he bought us two 16g horse shoe rings, an 8mm for me and a 10mm for him, from the shop 'King of Rings' in Bendigo. Next we went on a search for 16g needles. We couldn't find anywhere that sold piercing needles, or 14g needles full stop; so ... read more

I don't know who this is more awkward for?

My septum! :) being my third facial piercing I must admit I was way more nervous getting this one then my labret or tongue. So like most people I use to hate the way septum piercings looked, I used to think "who would want to look like a freaking bull?!" but then they started to grow on me after I got my tongue pierced. Anywho getting to the actual experience....It was friday August 29th the day before my brithday and my parents had promised me I could get another piercing, after wanting my septum pierced for about 3 months I ... read more

16g diy Septum during school

It all started way back in January the first time I ever saw a septum piercing. At first I thought of it as silly and made people look like bull's, but the more and more I looked at people with them the more fond I grew of them. So after March when I got most of my body mod's done (Left nostril, snakebites, right eyebrow, and navel in one day) I asked for one more piercing ; my Septum [I plan to have over 50 piercings but this was all for the time being]. My mother refused and said that ... read more

Rose Nose

Each time I see myself, be it in my dirty bathroom mirror as I'm going through my morning beautifying ritual or the glimpses I catch passing by a shop window, I find it hard to remember my face without my nostril piercing. It's almost as if it belongs there. In my mind, it does. The little ball of my nostril screw or the in your face beauty of my black titanium ring, no matter what I wear in it, it's there. It's perfect. I've had nose issues for as long as I can remember. Not medical issues (although I get ... read more

Hot Damn- Lucky Break [septum]

Quick and easy- it all started when one of my closest friends got her septum pierced with about a month or two left of school last year. I saw it, I loved it and I wanted to follow suit. Finally the time rolled around that had a convenient spot for me to get pierced- a time came during the summer when I came home from a friend's, was home for three days, then left on a trip with the same friend. I got it done on the 2nd day home while I was "out to lunch" with some of my ... read more

Re-pierced Septum. 2nd Time is a Charm

I first considered getting my septum pierced about a year ago. At the time I was only 17 and had to wait until my birthday in January. The septum was so appealing to me because I could hide it. Neither of my parents would approve, nor would my work. My birthday rolled around and I read up as much as I could on septum piercings. I read everything I could find on BME and found many different things. I consider myself to have a relatively high pain tolerance so I figured I would be fine. Now I just had to ... read more

Grad Present

Well around three monthts ago, I got my first facial piercing. It was a spur of the moment thing even though I had been wanting to get something done for the longest time. Anyways back on topic, my friend was over the day after my graduation party and offered to pay for a piercing for my present. She offered mostly because she couldn't think of anything else I wanted, and knew I had always wanted to get something pierced. I was like hell ya, and was ready to get it done. We both thought I should get my lip pierced, ... read more

Please do not destroy my nose!

So herein lays my latest experience with body modification. It was somewhat scary, which I will get to in the proceeding story. For background, let me tell you briefly about my resume of past body modifications as they may relate to my descriptions: I have had my nipples pierced 3 times each a vertical nape over top of a horizontal, my ears both once, and a madison twice. My experience related here is a re-piercing of my once 8 gauge septum, taken out around 3 years ago. I have not had any piercings in for about that long, as well. ... read more

First Facial Piercing

I got my septum pierced on a lark. It honestly was a last minute decision, but one I'm glad I made. Let me start by saying that I only recently became fond of septum piercings. I used to find them odd, awkward, & unattractive, & I used to say that they made people look like bulls. Maybe something in me changed, or maybe I've just been meeting a lot of people for whom a septum piercing really works. Either way, I decided that I wanted one. A septum piercing is the ideal facial piercing for me for many reasons. First ... read more
