Piercing My Own Nostril

I had wanted my nose pierced for a very long time, and knew my parents would never take me to get it pierced professionally, or pay for it. I had just started hanging out with "scene kids" and wanted to fit in with my new friends. And so, the first day of summer in my freshman year of high school I decided to pierce it myself. I had never been pierced or let alone pierced myself so it took a lot to talk myself into it. I was nervous that my hand would shake, and I would pierce it crooked, ... read more

Nose Piercing. Unprofessionally Done. At Home.

Recently, I have taken more and more of an interest into piercings. I think that they are attention grabbing, and people look at you instantly. I have respect for people who have piercings and tattoos, because alot of the time it isn't always for style, its to push yourself further and further each time and see what your limit of pain is. I don't care what people who don't like piercings think, they just don't understand the culture, and that's fine. Now, I want to get snakebites, my septum, and a surface piercing on each hip. There is only one ... 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

my cute little nose ring.

Ok so, when I was nine years old, I got my lobes done. Then apparently, one got ripped out,put back in, got infected, and made a huge pus/blood bubble on the back of my ear. Which hurt like a mother fucker when my mom had to squeeze all the pus and blood out. So I just took the other one out too. I was afraid to get a piercing ever since that incident. But when I was 12, I got my cartilage done with a gun. Bad idea, I was pretty stupid, but it's actually still really fine right now. ... read more

Septum dissapointment!

Alright here we go! After many failed attempts at my piercing my septum, I decided to give it one last shot. Now, let's rewind a year or so earlier...I've always loved piercings, especially the septum piercing. I've gotten a bunch of piercings before hand, but never was I happy with the result of my septum after every time it was pierced. It was either too crooked, too high up, too lopsided, or too whatever, I was just unhappy with it. It was never the right placement for me. So after having my septum pierced about 10 times over, of course ... read more

Self satisfaction at a flip of a coin

Self satisfaction at a flip of a coin hello reader, you have probably turned to this story because of its vague name. Well, this is a story all about my new septum piercing. I know, another teenaged female getting her nose pierced, but this one I think I wroth experiencing. I had been like you, looking over BME in storys and pictures, trying to figure out what I wanted to get. Every 6 months or so I get another piercing and I was getting "the itch". I settled on either getting two more upper cartilage piercing on my left ear ... read more

My First Piercing.

I had been lusting after some sort of piercing for months on end, but, having heard some pretty scary things, I was a little anxious about some "myths" I'd heard regarding various piercings. After conducting my own research on the matter I concluded that a nostril piercing was the one for me- it didn't have any really strange "struck by lightening" myths attached to it, nor did it sound like it would take too long to heal. I have since heard from people with many piercings that actually say their nose hurt right up in the top three, which is ... read more

Happy as a steel-laden clam! I loved every minute of it.

Having gone through the gates of: snakebites(down to just one side), a Monroe(now gone), my left nostril(closed), and a current navel hoop, I was looking for something new. I wasn't interested in a tongue ring, and my options were limited seeing as how my current employer prefers no visible piercings, so I opted for my septum. I've known people before who have said they can easily flip it up inside their nose, and upon receiving a rather fat check I decided it was high time to get some new steel. I've gone to a few different studios for my piercings, ... read more
