What happens at art camp, stays at art camp!

As most of us fans of body mods know, the work environment is not particularly conducive to piercings. I know where I work at (a restaurant) employees aren't allowed to have any visible piercings besides ears (as long as they're not gauged) and maybe a nostril stud on a girl. As a result I never really gave a lot of thought to facial piercings. I wanted one, maybe in my lip, but I knew I couldn't get away with anything visible. One day, however, a few of us who had just clocked out were sitting around talking at a table ... read more

Getting my nose pierced. Totaly worth it!

I had always wanted to get some sort of piercing (navel, nose or helix) but I am extremely scared of needles. I admired that my sister had gotten her tongue and her navel pierced and my mom had gotten a helix piercing and her navel done with my sister. Since I was twelve I thought about piercings a lot. Two years later my mom and I were at a clothing store and while I was in the change room I just asked 'Mom, can I get my nose pierced?' I was thinking about it, and how easy it would be ... read more

An International Piercing Effort - Making My Dreams Come True

My life so far, in 18 short years, has consisted of three main dreams and goals: Becoming a professional musician, traveling the world, and becoming modified. The first step in that set of dreams was acquiring the 12 ear piercings I had desired from a very young age. Next, getting accepted into a highly-respected music school. Then, my treble clef tattoo. Now, in perhaps the most drastic measure of all, I uprooted my life for two months to travel around the other side of the Atlantic – spending two months going around the United Kingdom and Ireland - seeing what ... read more

My 10 gage septum

I'm 20 years old and I've had my septum pierced for 2 years now. Since then I have had multiple piercings, but you never really forget your first piercing experience. I'm usually a spur of the moment person but, oddly enough, I put a lot of thought in to what body modifications I want. I got my septum pierced the day I turned 18 years old. I was your average teenage idiot and wanted to get something that I could hide from my parents and work. My mom said if I was to live in her house I wasn't aloud ... read more

The tale of my nose piercing

Before I got my nose pierced, my only experience with body mods was getting my ears pierced when I was three. Needless to say, I did not remember much about that experience so I was a bit nervous about the whole thing. At the time I was only 17, and it took a bit of convincing for my parents to let me do it. I basically mentioned that this would be my only body mod, or else if they didn't let me do it I might go crazy when I turned 18 and get a tattoo on my face, so ... read more

It not your god, It everybody God.

All girls love to come back to school with a whole new look that will shock and surprise everyone and I am no exception. I was sixteen, about to go into the eleventh grade and only had my tongue pierced. My first experience with a septum piercing was browsing the internet when I came across a picture of this heavily modified guy who had a septum piercing. I thought," Oh wow. That's so ugly it's cute. I want it!" I knew people were going to be appalled by my choice and I really wrestled over it. My friends are piercing-less ... read more

These gloves feel like condoms!

Hello readers, I suppose you are all here to read about my experince getting my septum, well kiddies. Here it is. I had already had my septum done three times before this one, and all three had came out crooked or placed wrong. So Angie and Tadd told me to go with them to Nomads in SF. So I made plans to meet there at the studio, while I was waiting for them to get there I walked up and down height street with my dad and friend Veronika. I was a little nerveous to get my septum done again, ... read more

A whim completed my face.

Like most stories involving this increasingly common piercing, my thoughts on the septum piercing were originally negative ones. I never saw much appeal to looking like a bull. However, though, when Christmas rolled around, and I had money to spare, I was going in to get the other side of my snakebites done, and the piercing held a new appeal for me. This was before I had found BME, and I didn't know much about the piercing at the time. I'd seen a few pictures, but that was all. The piercing was done almost entirely on a whim - I'd ... read more

The Nose Piercing that I have wanted forever!

I know people always say this but I've been wanting my nose pierced since I was 14. I'm not sure why. I think I was influenced by taste in music and was generally fascinated by piercings. I went to a school that was pretty strict with this sort of thing but by the time I got to 15 I desperately wanted it done. I think we drove to the piercers about 5 times in the space of two years which resulted in me getting overwhelmingly nervous and chickening out. I was a completely different person back then. When I finally ... read more

2nd time lucky!

For about a year I had wanted my nose pierced; I have a selection of other piercings and have always thought that the nose was the only facial piercing that would suit me, so my mum and I decided to get it done after my GCSES after much persuasion, as a reward for my hard work. N'aww. I had previously gone to a piercing establishment in my local town of Tunbridge Wells, which was very professional, sterile etc - everything you want your piercing place to be, so we decided to return there. But on the day of my last ... read more
