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

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

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
