My exciting septum

So yeah, I think it was pretty exciting... In November of last year, I decided it was time I had the septum piercing I'd been going on about for a while, and I started thinking about where I could go and have it done. I'd gone to a couple of other piercing places to ask about it before, but the first place had no resident piercer at that time and it was just the tattooist doing the piercings, so I thought I would wait and try and find a place that had a dedicated piercing artist. I kind of forgot ... read more

My cute little nose!

Well, I've been wanting to get something done for a long time. I was too lazy to get my sparrows drafted so I started talking about getting my nose pierced to a few of my friends. I bailed out a few times, but I finally had to put my foot down, if I said I was going to do it, by god I was going do it! Not to mention I had also just turned 18 this year! So I knew that was something I still had to do and cross off the "I just turned of age" list. I ... read more

makeshift coming of age by hollow needle

Here is my septum piercing and coming of age story of the year I turned 18 years of age. I'd been reading a lot about coming of age rituals as my 18th birthday approached. I was interested in a septum piercings because of the significance of the piercing in some tribes having to do with separation from the mother and the blood from the piercing being symbolic of that (You can actually read a bit about this in the encyclopedia section of BME). My mother and I were in good standings and all but she had expressed me to me ... read more

The girl with sinus problem gets her septum pierced

I have always love piercings, but when I got my first piercing when I was 19 and I have been truly in love with them since. They are truly a part of me...... The only regret I have that is waiting so long to get them. I have been debating to get my septum piercing for six months. I have been debating if I wanted to get my septum or my Monroe. After much research on BMEzine and other sites, I decided that I wanted to get my septum. Septum piercing just seem more beautiful and plus I could hid ... read more

In memory of...

I woke up today and thought, this was the time for it. This was me prepared and wanting this. I had been gearing myself up for this piercing for a long time, reading BME articles, experiences and asking my piercer, but today was the day for my septum to be pierced. My horoscope for today said I was going to need to change my life's blueprint and do something different; well this was my chance to act apon what the stars were telling me to do... I had arranged to meet my friend at the piercing parlour so I knew ... read more

Simple and painless.

In September of last year, my parents and I went to Niagara Falls for Labor Day Weekend. While up there, I saw many people who were most likely from India. And their nose piercings, part of Hindu Culture. I thought it was absolutely beautiful. I had always liked septum piercings, but I was suddenly attracted to nostril piercings. So I decided to go out on a limb and ask my mom for one. After all, my older brother had gotten an eyebrow piercing when he was 16. So I asked. I reminded her that it's not a suggestive piercing [like ... read more

Got my nostril pierced in Amsterdam

The story starts during my journey to Amsterdam... I have always been interested in body modification since I was a small girl, it has just always fascinated me, I begged my Mum from about the age of four to be allowed to get my ears pierced, she finally gave in when I was 11. I now have 4 standard lobes, 1 0 gauge lobe, 1 tragus, 1 upper ear cartilage (have had so many that have been retired!) 2 retired navel piercings, nostril, 2 tattoos and plans on an industrial and nipples. Ok so fast forward to Easter weekend when ... read more

Septum. 'The Perfect Piercing'

I had wanted to have my Septum pierced for quite some time before I actually went through with it. When I was 16 I rebelled and had my Monroe pierced, but my parents definitely weren't down with it, so it was removed only a day after I had gone and had it pierced. So, I obviously took the fact that my parents weren't too keen on facial piercings into consideration when I made this choice. The beauty of the Septum piercing is that it's easily concealed, that is probably one of my favorite aspects. I love the way that a ... read more

Family Bonding

Since middle school when I first pierced something other than my ear lobes, I've been extremely interested in body modifications of all types. I was very excited when my mother, modified herself, said for my sweet sixteen I could get a nostril piercing. We made plans with Jim, the owner and piercer at Flesh Gear not far from my home, and went in on my birthday. On the way to the shop, my mom was grinning from ear to ear at the thought of her baby going through with a "life changing experience." I smiled back, not taking her completely ... read more

Nervous for NO Reason

To preface: I have eight ear piercings (although I don't wear all of hem anymore), my tongue pierced, and had my nipples pierced up until my pregnancy in 2005/2006. I have four tattoos (also c/o of Native Rituals--Virus is an incredible artist!) So while I don't consider myself a seasoned vet of body mods, I do have at least a little experience to go on. Tonight I went to Native Rituals to get my nostril pierced after mulling it over for an embarrassingly long time. Honestly, I'd been contemplating this piercing off and on for over a year. I'd asked ... read more
