My Double Nose Piercing (DragonBites)

I have been in love with body modifications since I was at the tender crossroads of teenage-dome. 12 years old and crazy to have who knows what screwed into my face! But never in those 4 years of waiting had I assumed that the first "real piercing" I'd have would be on the most hated part of my face; my nose! Like most other people, I had my lobes pierced at an age where I couldn't even count, so my first remembered experience of having a piece of metal inserted into my flesh was at 14 years old. I had ... read more

A simple nostril means so much

Well, first I'm a guy LOL. That's a bit odd for some of the people in my circle given what I'm about to tell you. I wanted my first piercing (not counting gunned lobes - twice - and cartilage from Claire's). I'm 26 and had been wanting my belly button (navel) since I was 18, and I was in California. And the weather was awful. What else does one do when they can't party on the beach? Get their first piercing! Adding to the desire, I live in a tiny town where the shops are all dirty or just rude. ... read more

First Nostril Piercing Experience

I started my long (albeit slow-moving) journey into body modification at 17 when I got my first tattoo. At that time, I only had pierced lobes (gunned from when I was a child, much to my dismay as I suspect the placement might be weird now) and no other piercings. After my tattoo, I started considering the idea of getting a nostril piercing. Fast forward nearly ten years later, and I'm sitting in a chair with my piercer and a lubed up needle aimed at my nose. My heart is pounding. The needle is scaring the shit out of me. ... read more

Guys, I'm Getting A Septum

Today is the 24th of June and my 17th birthday. Today, I got a pain in the nose and became a pain in the ass. I'm not a noobie when it comes to piercings but I'm not a veteran either, so you can imagine my excitement/fright that I had when I declared to my friends that I wanted a septum piercing. I've had an interest for a long time mind you but it was more a thought of "How could you...WOULDN'T THAT HURT?!" and I figured that it looked kind of badass too. So this week came and I was ... read more

FINALLY; my septum.

I've been into body modification seriously for the last 6 years or so. But most people wouldn't guess that by just looking at me, given that up until recently, I had only the standard lobe piercings. Lack of funds and being on a seemingly endless job-hunt have been the biggest roadblocks on my path to modded bliss. Getting my septum pierced was already something I had planned on, but I only recently decided to go through with it. It seemed like the most viable option for my current situation, since I need something I could hide when going to turn ... read more

Hypertrophic Hell

I decided one day that I must be cursed. This is because my mind and heart adore body modifications, piercings especially, yet my body seems to detest them!! My first piercing was my navel, even before my earlobes. This was in February 2007. It was a well done piercings and I had no issues with. Earlobes followed in March. Then in June I decided on a nose piercing, a plain, simple stud through my left nostril. The process was slightly painful but well done again and for about a month everything was just great, it looked awesome, seemed to be ... read more

my septum project.

I've wanted a facial piercing for over 3 years now, not knowing which one i wanted to get. Initially i wanted snakebites, then my nostril, then back to snakebites. Until eventually i decided i wanted my septum pierced. I thought "Hey, it's simple, practical, and all around awesome." I've researched the piercing for months. How it was done, the tools used, how to know if your piercer is qualified. I watched many videos of it being done. In almost all the videos, the piercer used clamps. But i also found out that an alternative to the painful clamps were receiving ... read more

The Taurus & Her Bull Ring

This septum piercing wasn't exactly planned. I woke up that day, knowing I wanted a piercing. I decided on a tongue web. I drove down to TRX, told Stan that what I wanted and he smiled and asked, "Who's gonna do it for you?" to which I replied, "You?" No, Stan does not do tongue webs... Sad Face. My usual piercer and the only piercer I had let come near me with a needle, Courtney, until that day was in Las Vegas for the APP Conference. So, I sat there, cycling through which piercing I was going to get instead. ... read more

Septum piercing (not actually that painful!)

Well, I have been a huge fan of septum piercings for a few years now, but had read quite a few horror stories on them and how much they 'kill'. I think I finally decided to just go for it after I had both my nipples pierced, as that wasn't as bad as I previously had thought it would be. Each time before I get any piercing done, I spend a while (at least a week) decided if it’s what I really want and the types of jewellry available for the certain piercing. I look in the galleries here on ... read more

My Septum

I'd wanted my septum pierced for four years, but had never gotten the courage to get it done. This was, in part, due to thinking it wouldn't suit me, but also not having the confidence to ignore that doubt and do it anyway. Recently I've had a steady boost in confidence due to seeing a counsellor and getting my life in order - and I decided what better way to celebrate my new found confidence and comfort in myself than by getting a piercing I'd wanted for ages? I visited a shop near my uni that several of my friends ... read more
