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

My long-awaited septum piercing

Hello, let me tell you about my first real piercing experience! For over two years, I have wanted a septum piercing. However, I was too much of a chicken to actually get the piercing done - until now. Doing research about good quality piercers in the area, I found a piercing studio with a very good reputation. The web site looked nice and displayed pictures of a neat looking place. I did some more research to be sure this would be the place I would get my first piercing done (not counting 2x lobe piercings done at a hairdresser at ... read more

Underage Piercing (but still great)

So I had wanted to get my nose pierced for a long long time. And being 16, I couldn't legally go to get it pierced, in Oregon where I live. Oh what is a girl to do? I had begged and begged my mom to take me, but my dad was so against it, that she was scared to take me. He told me he would kick me out if I had it done. It did not help that all of my friends would constantly tell me how great I would look with my nose pierced. I'm half East Indian, ... read more

I guess I'll get my nose pierced today

The day i got my nosed pierced started like any other day. I had no inkling that by 9 pm I'd have a new piercing. I've been modifying on and off for 4 years, and have successfully stretched my lobes, and am starting on my cartilage this fall. I got my belly button done a few years ago and hadn't done anything new since, but its worth saying all my piercings have been done with hollow needles, and there really isn't a reason to ever get pierced with a gun. I have always wanted my lip pierced and had never ... read more

The story of my iccle septum piercing.

So Friday I got up the guts to go to my piercers and enquire about septum piercings; what they had to put it in it and the price. I then went into town pondering about if I should get it done with a titanium U shaped retainer or a blackline one (which I would have to order myself.) I went home still pondering and decided that I would order a blackline one and if it was to be delivered by the next day then I would have it done with that and if it wouldn't then I would go get ... read more

Bumps no more for my nostril piercing!

I planned to get my nostril pierced for my eighteenth birthday but surprisingly, my mom took me in to get it done a week early. I debated whether or not I wanted a ring, but decided to go for a simple stud after examining my nose in the mirror and deciding it'd look better. My experience was rather simple and anti-climactic, not much to describe. We walked in, no appointment, and told them I'd like my nostril pierced. We signed the papers, paid, and he took me into a back room. But ugh, every time I go to get something ... read more

Speeding Ticket Piercing

When I was 8 I got my first set of piercings on my ears. I got the first one done and cried for nearly an hour about the pain before letting the lady do the piercing on the other side. I got it done with the gun and unfortunately I believe the sound was what scared me more than any amount of pain I may have felt. I decided I hated piercings and would never get any more. For almost four years after that I had an extreme fear of piercings from the memory of that day. I decided that ... read more

A Very Easy Piercing For a Very Scared Girl!

I have wanted my nose pierced for the last few years, since a friend of mine got hers done. I've always thought that nose rings looked nice, not too big and really cute! I'm in a profession that tends to frown on visible body modifications so that deterred me a little, however, after actually looking at the staff I realized that quite a few of them have their noses pierced so I didn't think it would be much of a problem for me, I just needed the guts to do it. To give you an idea of how much the ... read more
