Sisterly Septums

In March 2007 my younger sister was hit by a truck while crossing her street at a zebra crossing. She suffered major injuries, including a broken and dislocated spine, major internal bleeding, two breaks in her pelvis, broken wrist and ankle and a broken nose. Her nose naturally was the least of anyone's worries, even more so after she became seriously ill with pneumonia. Now there's a time limit on resetting a broken nose, two to three weeks and then it becomes impossible. At two weeks and six days, my sister was with it enough to go down and try ... read more

Septum gone WRONG. Don't trust all piercers...

For years I have always thought about getting my septum done. I've had almost every type of ear piercing and my lip done so I thought f*ck it just do it already! I was told by this 'guy' I know to go into town to get it done. So off I went. I have quite a high pain threshold so I wasn't worried about that. The piercer who did it was 'mates' with the guy who told me to get it done there. So I thought, 'cool', I'm in good hands. I did kind of get the vibe (always follow ... read more

Septum

So I had been planning to get my Septum pierced for over a year, just never got around to it with working and study, but one day me and a few of my friends decided to go get pierced. This to me looked like a great opportunity, so I booked in to my piercist to have two piercings done, (my right side Monroe, and my septum.. but hey this story is about my septum so I wont go into detail with my Monroe.) I was scared as anything to get my septum done after seeing my friend get hers done ... read more

Septum, my first facial piercing!

It was April 16th of 2008 around 4 o'clock in the afternoon and I decided I was finally going to do it. I was finally going to get my septum pierced. I'd wanted to get it done for well over a year, but I was too scared of my assumptions of how much it would hurt that I avoided it. I knew where I wanted it done and who by, and I was glad that Rockstar Body Piercing took walk-ins. I'd been there a billion times to get plugs and such for my stretched lobes and I knew the piercers ... read more

Second Nostril Piercing or "See, It's Not That Bad!"

I suppose I should start this off by explaining why I've opted to write about a nostril piercing today instead of one of the more harrowing and interesting ones I've had done. I guess the best reason is probably just because as I had it done yesterday, it's easily the freshest experience in my mind. The other thing I feel deserves some explanation is that after a reasonably thorough search of the site, nobody's said anything about Dan at Stigmata and I feel the guy deserves some (virtual) ink. Now that that's out of the way – on with the ... read more

My septum piercing

My Septum! I'd wanted my septum done for a while after I'd got my first piercing, and I'd heard stories that it was one of the most painful facial piercing you can get. Well I'd already had a smilie, and both nostrils and my nostrils had hurt a LOT, so I figured what the hell, it can't hurt much more than that! I psyched myself up and went into my local piercing studio and asked if I could get it done. The receptionist (and piercer) said that she wouldn't be able to do it because she'd never done one before, ... read more

My Nose Story

I just got out of a very serious two year relationship. When things in my life change, I have to take control. This usually occurs in the form of cutting/dying my hair, but this time I just didn't think that would be sufficient enough to cure the anxiety in my life. My best friend has the cutest nose stud, and I decided that a nose ring would look great on me. So, in passing I mentioned it to my dad, "What do you think about nose rings?" He replied, "I think you are beautiful the way you are, but you ... read more

My Dirty Little Secret.

By nature, humans strive to do what they feel is necessary, or in some cases, what they feel is right. I am a frequent viewer of BME, and of piercings in general. I aspire to be a piercer when I grow up, and I have a overly-decent amount of knowledge for nearly 50+ piercings. I am on BMEZine.com every single day, investing countless hours browsing photos and experiences when I should be indulging in the wonders of trigonometry or biomed. With that said, I hope you realize by now that I am a piercing-fanatic. Past: Let's rewind two years, give ... read more

First facial piercing, low pain tolerance!

I had never considered myself a body mod kind of person; in fact, I didn't get my ears pierced until I was 15 out of an unholy fear of the pain (since I have ridiculously low tolerance and sensitive skin). However, as my approaching 18th birthday became a reality, I began to think I might like to try a facial piercing. After thinking it through, I chose a standard nose piercing--after all, I reasoned, if it sucked, I could just take it out. They seemed pretty timeless and not too trendy, so if I decided I liked it, I could ... read more

Finally got my nostril pierced!

April 18 2008 I've wanted to get my nostril pierced for a long time now. When I was 15, I was actually going to get that and my tongue done at the same time, but I ended up getting my tongue and navel pierced. So, now at 19, I decided I really wanted to get it done. The stars basically have to align for me when I want to go out and do stuff.(In other words, I always need to find someone to watch my son. He's a troublemaker in the terrible twos so it's hard.) My fiancé and I ... read more
