Septum, finally..

Hi, I'm Andrew. When I first started high school, I started getting into Piercings. Since then (One and a half years ago), I have had my left ear pierced 7 times and stretched to 14mm, my right ear pierced once and stretched to 8mm, my tongue pierced, my lip pierced, and both of my eyebrows pierced. I decided to get another one, and so I chose my septum. I'd arranged to get this done with my friends on many other occasions, not really intending to go through with it and instead getting something different pierced. One day, my friend said ... 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

Neuspiercing gone wrong

Ergens in maart besloot ik dat ik er nog een derde piercing bij wilde (de zes gewone gaatjes in mijn oren niet meegerekend). Geheel spontaan ben ik dus voor een neuspiercing gegaan. Normaal gesproken vond ik een neuspiercing niet echt bij mij passen, maar in combinatie met mijn labret piercing vond ik het wel een goed idee. Aldus: geld gepind, beste vriendin meegesleept naar de tattoo & piercing studio bij ons in de stad en in de wachtruimte een tijdje in m'n handjes wringen vanwege de toch opgekomen zenuwen. Hoewel ik stiekem wel wat zenuwachtig was (zou ik het nu ... read more

My rambling nose-piercing-co-worker-bonding experience!

Last Wednesday, I finally decided to re-do my left nostril piercing. I had it pierced about three years ago but unfortunately I jumped the gun on changing my piercing and my nose would not tolerate having another nose screw put in. It bled like crazy and then my screw fell down the drain, so I took it as fate telling me not to have a nose ring. Well, three years later I have decided to re-do my little piece of "nasal rebellion" as some people see it. A few months ago I had gotten a birth control implant put in ... read more

Third Time Lucky....

I had already had my nostril pierced twice before. First time was with Carl at Dragons Den, Bangor. But a lump appeared underneath the jewelery so I took it out in a panic. The second time was done by my trusty new piercer, Diane. But, school decided to tell me to take it out, even thought it says in the rulebook, "Year 11 pupils can have at least on facial piercing" or something along those lines. Exams came to a close, so I started thinking about going for another try at my nose again. I wasn't scared of the pain ... read more

The story of my septum

I never actually thought of getting my septum pierced. About 3 or 4 months ago I didn't even like how it looked but I started looking at pictures of it on BME and I realized it can look nice but only a circular barbell. I went skating and I saw some people who were hiding their septum piercing and they told me they have been hiding it from their parents for a long time and they don't even notice it. That's when I got the idea to get my septum pierced because I could hide it from my parents. Well ... read more

The greatest anticipation and estatic release

I've had my septum pierced twice now. The first time was self done at 16 and wasn't a good idea because I wasn't at all knowledgeable about what I was doing. It was very crooked which made it painful to wear jewelry in. I retired it after about two years, with the sad assumption that I would never be able to get it redone because there was too much scar tissue. It was during a q & a with Scott, the owner of Sub Q, that the possibility of having my septum pierced again became a possibility. After having him ... read more

Not the most comfortable moment of my life

Just when my mother was starting to get comfortable, I told her of my intentions to go through with a six-year-old desire: to have my nose pierced. As I had anticipated, she wasn't staunchly opposed. In fact, she confessed that she had been considering a nose piercing as my graduation present but held off on the idea because she wasn't sure if I was still interested. My mother embraced my decision only suggesting I wait until after my cousin's wedding. She asked a friend from work to tell her if there was a reputable location where I could have the ... read more

Nose Piercing Experience!

One day I went down to visit my Dad, who lives in the big and bustling city of Prince George for spring break. Around the same time last year I had gotten my ears pierce for the first time, I was 14. So Maybe I caught some sorta of piercing bug I've heard so much about. I didn't know what I wanted, I was only 15 at the time and most piercings were a major no-no by my mother. My Dad on the other hand, can't really say anything, he has both nipples pierced. So I decided that since I ... read more
