Painful septum experience

I was really frustrated at one point because I looked so "normal."My look didn't yet fit into my standards of "edgy." I really wanted a piercing, but on the face, one that'll turn heads. I didn't even have my earlobes pierced either (and guess what? I still don't). I only got my earlobes pierced with a gun when I was 11, and they've been closed for years. There are always lip piercings and eyebrow piercings and nostril piercings, but it seemed everybody and their mom had those, and I have been researching unusual piercings on the internet for a couple ... read more

My septum experience

Ok, SO! For the past few years I have been listening to a band called Avenged Sevenfold. And for the past year I have been interested in the band's guitarist Zacky V. He has gauged ears, Snakebites and septum. I have gauged ears 16mm (5/8") Got my side lip done last summer, and my completed snakebites a few months back. I had them all except, Yes. the septum. The feeling was quite odd, And I was scared to get it. Until 6 months ago I thought the piercing went through the actual cartilage (This goes to show, DO YOUR RESEARCH!) ... read more

Well Bless my Septum

I went to a Jewish school as a kid and yes, I had a big nose. My dad is Sephardic and my mom was raised Irish Catholic and I had the misfortune of inheriting my father's nose. To make matters worse, one day in the sixth grade this girl with a really small nose (but a really large derriere) who was Jewish on both sides walks up to me and says, "No offense," (she always says no offence before saying something that's assured to offend you,) "No offense, but you have a really big nose. I mean, it's like its ... read more

My septum piercing, again.

I do not endorse self piercing or getting pierced by somebody unprofessional, but at the time I didn't care and my urge to get a piercing was far too great for me to care. So here I was sitting in my house, bored out of my mind, and suddenly I get the urge to pierce something. Being the huge pussy I am, I message my friend Elisa and I tell her I want to get a piercing. She asked me what I had wanted and I thought about it. My parents, like most parents, are very close-minded, so I had ... read more

Finally!

Ok. So when I was about 15 years old, I saw a picture of Kelly Clarkson with her nose pierced. I thought it was so cute! Of course, I thought I had to have it, so I decided to ask my parents if they would take me to get it done on my 16th birthday. Of course, they said no. They said it was "slutty" and I didn't need to be walking around with holes in my face. I didn't understand. The nose piercing is so tiny! You can barely see it. And I told them I could always take ... read more

An uplifting septum piercing.

I got my septum pierced a few days before Christmas of 2007. It was my first body modification, though I had a scheduled session for a tattoo the day before Valentine's day that had been in place for nearly a year. I was going through a very troubled time: I was just getting control of my bipolar disorder, still getting over a bad breakup with a girlfriend of two years and losing a majority of my close friends. One day, while feeling down in the dumps, I decided I needed a piercing. I had a friend that I had a ... read more

"Alright I'll just finish up here and then I'll stab you in the face!"

After about eight months of putting it off, it finally happened! My buddy who got me into mods called me up after work and asked if I wanted to go with him to the studio after work to grab some half inch tunnels. Naturally I said yes as I love everything about being in the studio. My buddy knew I really wanted my septum pierced and also knew I was putting it off. He always trys to get me pierced just to watch me squirm. He says it's for my own good, because I want to pierce people for a ... read more

My rebellious birthday piercing

It was my 17th birthday and I was going to treat myself to something I had wanted for a fair bit of time. Although I feared the wrath of my parents, since I'd made a promise after getting about 9 holes in my ears that I would refrain from any more body modification until I was 18, or had moved out and was living with my rules, not theirs. I cannot really remember the exact rules anymore. At the subway I called my Dad to let him know I would be returning home with a nostril piercing. He was not ... read more

My nostril piercing, with mum!

My mum and I were wandering around in the city doing some window shopping and having lunch together for Mother's Day this year. I noticed a girl standing around in the mall who had a lovely sparkling nostril piercing and I mentioned in passing to mum that I had been meaning to get mine done again (I'd had it done once before but had retired it). Mum, being an outgoing and spontaneous chicky, immediately said, "Well let's go do it then!". I thought it was awesome that mum was going to get her nose pierced and I wanted to see ... read more

my favorite piercing

I have always been interested in body modification for as long as I can remember. I first got my ears pierced when I was about five years old, because my mom worked at a hair salon where they did ear piercing (with a gun...I hadn't been introduced to BME quite yet). Since then I've gotten my ears pierced five more times, including my snug and my tragus, and I've also had my bellybutton and anti-eyebrow done, but both are now retired :[. The day I decided to get my septum pierced, I had not even been planning on getting a ... read more
