My long-awaited nostril piercing

Ever since I was little I wanted a nostril piercing. That tiny bit of jewelry resting on the nose was always the epitome of beauty to me. When I turned 16 I begged my mother to let me get it pierced. She gave me a long-winded speech about how I was too young to make a commitment on that level and said she'd be more than willing to take me to a piercer when I was 18 if I still wanted it. I reluctantly agreed to her offer and spent the next 2 years waiting patiently for it. The morning ... read more

My first body piercing!

I've never had a body piercing. I come from a conservative family, and don't have any outrageous friends to tell me about these things. But I've always loved them. Something always intrigued me. But yeah, I'm like everyone else. I used to hate septums. I thought they were ridiculous. But then as usual, something changed my mind. I watched Mel Gibson's Apocalypto (don't laugh). And I have Mayan blood (my mom is from Guatemala), and I thought that would be the perfect way to show my heritage. I had to give it TONS of thought. I decided to go through ... read more

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

No regrets.

A little history lesson.... I have always had a fascination with piercings and tattoos. I got my first piercing (eyebrow) when I was 16 and I was hooked! I then got my lip pierced (twice), tongue, septum, nostril, other eyebrow, nipple and my belly button ..... I loved my piercings. Then I had a reality check. I wanted to be a cop, and cops don't have piercings. My law professor took me aside one day told me how it was. I was a great student, I would be a great cop, but I would never get hired looking the way ... read more

my first piercing!

I have always wanted my nose pierced. I am a huge huge baby and I come close to passing out whenever I get booster shots at the doctors. I only have my ears pierced, once lol. So I've put it off and put it off. My sister has recently gotten a few piercings and convinced me to stop being a baby and just do it. I am going to visit her in a month and she told me I'd get it done then anyway if I didn't before.So for the past month or so I've been bringing myself up to ... read more

Left Nostril Piercing

I had been wanting to get a nostril piercing for awhile now. One of my friends had hers done and I loved the way it looked. The person who did hers does not have a shop anymore. So I started looking into other options. A friend of mine recommended Skin Thieves in Sedalia. I had never been there before but I had a friend who got nipple piercings done there and assured me that it was a clean environment and that they use an autoclave for all of their equipment. Since my friend is a nurse this made me feel ... read more

il mio piercing al setto

Non ho mai fatto un piercing in vita mia prima del 4 dicembre. Certo,ho i fori delle orecchie espansi fino ad un centimetro. Ma non è affatto la stessa cosa! Come non credo sia lo stesso aver concesso una volta ad un amico aspirante piercer di forarmi la parte alta dell'orecchio-esperienza che preferirei dimenticare visto che era appena tornato da un rave a Roma e gli tremava la mano come se avesse il parkinson-... È naturale quindi che io quel fatidico 4 dicembre fossi un pochino nervosa! Ho sempre amato i piercing. Volevo già forarmi il giorno del mio ventesimo ... read more

Too soft for a septum piercing?

I've always loved facial piercing's since I was young; I think they look amazing on the right person. But I was far too soft to go there my self and have the biggest fear of needles. So if you'd have told me 5/6 years ago I'd have a nice collection of piercing's, including my septum, I would've thought you were mad. I had my ear lobes done at a young age, but at 15 I finally decided on a nostril piercing (the left side) and to make sure I didn't change my mind, my friend dragged me into the hair ... read more
