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

Ten years ago, a piercing...

I'm not sure why I have always been interested in piercing...And a paradox is I don't even like jewelery much and only wear a neckless and a couple of rings. I had my ears pierced a few months after I was born and it was painful for years. I used to cry a lot when I had to remove and clean the studs... but suddenly, around 13 years old, I showed interest in having a few more ear piercing done. Eventually, at the end of the summer, I had added three holes in each ears and I was quite proud ... read more

Nostril piercing - one coward's tale

It had been several years since I last got a piercing, and while I had been considering getting my nose done for about a year, the fact is, I'm a coward. I don't handle pain well. So I had been putting it off, but I was sick of admiring other people's piercings. I wanted more of my own, dammit! I'd survived the pain before, when I had my labret pierced, so I knew that I could go through with it. When it came down to it, I was just procrastinating. I realised earlier this year after visiting the dentist that ... read more

Nose Piercing with Minor Problems

The September of my first year of university I wanted to get my nose pierced. At the time, I had three lobe piercings in each ear, my belly button had been pierced, but was not healing well at all, and I had both nipples pierced too, with no problems. I felt comfortable going to Cottage 13 for my nose because my nipple piercings were so easy to heal. I made an appointment at Cottage 13, a short bus ride from my parent's house, and went to get my nose pierced by myself. On the bus ride there, I was getting ... read more

My Septum Piercing – My new best friend ☺

I have loved and lost many piercings over the years for one reason or another and am always on the lookout for piercings that are new and exciting to me. I was at a friend's gig last Friday night and quite randomly I thought to myself "I want my septum pierced!" Honestly I had never considered a septum piercing for myself and had actually said in the past that was the one mod I wouldn't get. I had thought it seemed too much for little ol' me! However after my revelation I told my friend (who is also a professional ... read more

My septum experience

I've been interested in piercings for years. Like many 14 year olds I couldn't wait until I was 18 and could get what piercings I wanted without parental consent. I was totally jealous of other people in my school who got lip and ear piercings under 18. I freaked out one of my friends when she got a side labret, I went with her and I was more excited about it than she actually was! I guess I was quite sad when I was younger... :P . The most I got until I was 17 and got a labret, was ... read more

My self done septum

Since a very young age, I have been infatuated with piercings. I am not sure why, but being able to decorate your body fascinated me. naturally my parents have always been against any piercings, other than the standard single hole in each earlobe. my rebellion began in 5th grade. this is a very clear memory. I had wanted to put a second hole in one of my ears, so one day, I sat on my bed and rammed an earring stud through my ear. pop! it went in. when my dad drove me to school the next morning, I covered ... read more

My nose

It was about 6 days before my 16th birthday and I had FINALLY talked my parents into letting me get my nose pierced. My dad thought it would be better than a tattoo at my age, since I had asked for that too. It took some convincing, but after talking to them about it and mentioning it to them left and right, they finally gave in. Most of my friends had already gotten their nose pierced, as well, so I figured I would be the one to go next. I will admit, I was a tad nervous haha, I had ... read more

My first real piercing

I should start off by explaining that for the past few years, every major event in my life has been marked by body mod, although until May it was always cutting. Sixteen marked something for me. I'd gotten through a lot of shit in the past three years and I was finally happy (and had stopped cutting). So what better way to mark that than with a piercing? My first, professionally done piercing (not including my ears when I was little). So I talked to my parents, they weren't happy. Mum saw the connection to cutting and said she didn't ... read more

much better than anticipated

When I first contemplated a nose piercing, I wanted to get a standard side or nostril piercing. But where I work you cannot have any facial piercings, which is fine for the ones I already have, I just take them out, but it is so annoying knowing that I cannot add to my piercing collection. That is when I started to think about a septum piercing (due to the fact that you can flip up the jewelry to hide it at work). After thinking about it for a while, I decided I would go ahead and get it done. Before ... read more
