my nose piercing

About a year ago I got my nose pierced for a bit of fun and I love it. It was one of the best things I ever got done it looks cool and my boy friend loves if. He thinks it looks sexy and it is one of my favorite piercing and I would recommend getting it to anyone that asked me. I want to get another one on the other side that is how much I love it. It took a while to heal and every time I changed it, it hurt like hell but all the pain that ... 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

[diy] Septum

Septum Piercing Story Disclaimer: I do not advocate self-piercing. If you have a safety pin and some rubbing alcohol, do not even think about it. Proper tools include an autoclave, sterilized HOLLOW GAUGE needles, iodine, Gentian Violet [to mark], bleach, and clamps [optional]. Well, I have 17 piercings, 6x left lobe, 5x right lobe, 3x labret, 2x nostril, and my septum, which I'm going to tell you about. I had started to think about what type of piercing would suit my face, mainly my nose, after I had my double nostrils done. I figured three labrets... three nostril piercings... a ... read more

A Spontaneous But Worth While Decision

Last week, me and my friend Natalie were talking about tattoos. We've both wanted one for ages, but I wanted wait until I got mine. So we agreed to go book her tattoo once we had found a design she liked (she wanted two angel wings on the back of her neck), but I suddenly felt this urge to have some form of something done to my body. I have a few piercings, all fairly standard, I have a double lobe (the second holes were DIY) piercing on each ear, a cartilage piercing on my top right ear and my ... read more

Always Hidden, Almost Pointless

I'll go ahead and start this like the cliché 'girl gets septum pierced' story: I never thought I'd want my septum pierced. Out of all the possible piercings it was, in fact, the least likely thing for me to do. I'd seen many different pictures and seen them live and it simply wasn't something that appealed to me. I had a very good friend on IAM who had her septum pierced. She frequently talked about it – stretching it up or different jewelry she tried in it – but I never really gave it much thought. When I first met ... read more

Welcome to my face, septum piercing.

It's difficult to understand the significance of this piercing without a bit of background. When I first discovered piercings that were not just limited to the ears, I was more or less instantly repulsed by any nose piercings. No idea why, because I thought they looked great on the right face. Fast forward five or so years, and I notice that my taste is morphing slightly. I got a nipple piercing, followed swiftly by a genital piercing. And it was about the time of the latter when I discovered that I felt my face was missing something. For me, a ... read more

Of steel and tears.

I have numerous piercings, and I have always adored them from the moment the needle entered my flesh. As I got older, I found a fascination with stretched, large piercings of all sorts . . . labrets, earlobes, nostrils, anything you could pierce! BME was my resource for pictures and experiences detailing the process. It was one day about six months ago that I looked at every single large gauge septum in the galleries on BME and decided that I wanted one as well. I currently had no piercings that remained unstretched besides my septum. At the time I started ... read more

Nostril on Impulse

In February of this year, while sitting in the car with my mom in our mall parking lot, she randomly asked me if I wanted to get my nose pierced. Now, this was strange considering I'd never before mentioned anything about nostril piercings, not to say I wasn't interested. I said "sure", and we drove off to the closest piercing and tattoo studio: Hot Spot. I guess she didn't expect me to say yes, because when I did, she responded with a "really?" Before I got there though, I called them and asked how much it would cost and how ... read more
