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

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

Septum gone wrong.

I had wanted a septum piercing for quite a while and finally in February I decided to go for it. So I went to Needlewurks where I've gotten all of my piercings with a friend of mine. When we get in there aren't too many people waiting and I get in within like five minutes. The piercer isn't one I had ever seen before but he told me he was Paul's (the owner) first apprentice so I felt pretty comfortable. When we get in the room he asks if I had any questions and I said only one, my friend ... read more

A small taste , and I want more .

My parents were never into the idea of their first born daughter being interested in tattoos, piercings, and body modifications.I had always asked for something outrageous, such as a septum or lip, or the nape of my neck. They were always immediately against the idea, but after doing a little bit of thinking, and sucking up I had finally asked them to get my nose pierced. Alas, it was a rare opportunity when they gave me a "maybe" when I asked them about getting my nostril pierced. I had wanted something pierced ever since I could remember, and I figured ... read more

Seizure Right After Nose Piercing

Just to start this off, I would like to say that I am not scared of needles at all, And I don't ever faint or feel sick when seeing needles or blood. I only had each of my earlobes pierced, and I wanted to get my right nostril pierced. My mom took me and three friends to the studio today to get it done, and with the stud and cleaning supplies it cost $110 (the stud was pretty expensive because it was high quality). The guy took me into the back room and I sat on the gurney thing (a ... read more

ouch...but oooh so pretty!

Well let me start by saying I am a HUGE baby when it comes to pain. With that said,here's my story. I have been wanting to get my nose pierced for a long time.About 8 months ago,I started to do my research on it. All the risks,the problems,the healing and cleaning process. I even watched videos of other people getting it done so that I would know what to expect! My boyfriend,coworkers,and family did not approve. But I talked to my boss and he told me that I wouldn't lose my job over it. So I didn't care. I was ... read more

Not too eventful nostril!

Let me introduce myself, in a kind of anonymous way! I'm sixteen, I live in the UK and before this nose piercing, my only experience with body modifications was my gunned lobes... and watching my mother get her ankle get tattooed on a rather drunken night in Ayia Napa, but that's another story! I don't know why I suddenly wanted my nostril pierced, because, as I've said, I'd never had any interest in piercings before. In fact, when my (younger) sister had another set of lobe piercings, I felt sick! So, I was a shocked as anyone when I found ... read more

My Super Easy Septum Piercing

I have been considering/becoming increasingly obsessed with the idea of getting a nose ring of some sort for the past couple months. I was torn between getting a nostril ring or a septum ring and, ultimately, I went with the latter, after looking at tons of pictures of girls with septum rings, watching YouTube videos of the process, and reading about experiences on BME. I figured a septum ring would better suit my nose, which isn't giant, but isn't small by any means. For this piercing, I decided to go to a fairly new, increasingly reputable nearby shop that opened ... read more
