DIY septum piercing.

Alright. So I'm currently seventeen. I've had an interest in piercings and tattoos for as long as I can remember. Right now I've got six piercings. I have my septum of course, and three 14 gauge rings on my cartilage. I've also got my ear lobes pierced. They were one gauged to 5/8, which I hope to have once again, only larger than before. Now for my adventure in DIY septum piercing. It wasn't until after my seventeenth birthday that I decided I'd give myself my own present. I wasn't old enough to get a piercing professionally, and my mother ... read more

My Spiffing Septum

I've grown up around people with body modifications, so it makes sense for me to be into them really. Both of my parents and my Grandfather on my Mum's side are heavily tattooed. In fact, one of my earliest memories is my Grandad drawing on my arm with felt-tip pens because I wanted to look like him. I was amazed that anyone could have these wonderful pictures on their skin forever. My Mum and Dad were both into piercings, and while my Mum only had her eyebrow and nose pierced, my Dad was quite heavily modded. I can't remember exactly ... read more

My Septum=My Favorite Piercing

It was a cold and wintry day when I decided that I wanted to get my septum pierced. The snow was falling hard the day before, the roads were slick with ice, and I briefly thought about not going because of the condition of the roads but decided to do it anyway. I realized that if I did not do it then, I would never do it. I had been doing research on septum piercings for a while, and decided it was time. I knew what I was getting myself into, the risks, and everything else I would need to ... read more

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

Piercing My Septum (Insert Creative Title Here

Hi, my name is Bayli. Over the past year, since my first piercing, I have been diligently trying to decide what piercing I'd like next. The experience and outcome of the first was so rewarding, and I feel like my piercing has added to my appearance and persona, and was itching to experiment in body modification more. The only problem was that I had just turned eighteen, and was still living with my parents, who liked my lip piercing but were not too keen on having more trouble passing through metal detectors and odd looks in malls. I also knew ... read more

a birthday present for myself

Like a lot of people, I had decided that I wanted to get my nose pierced at a fairly young age. And like a lot of people, my mother was completely opposed to my doing so. By the time I was fifteen, I had decided that I would do it myself. I did, but wound up taking it out after only a couple of days because of my mother's disapproval. Around that time, I decided to just wait it out until I turned eighteen and could get it done legally without my parents' consent. I'd tried to prepare my parents ... read more

OCD Kid Gets Her Nostril Pierced

So, I had this extremely realistic dream where I had my nose pierced. In the dream, I went through the entire procedure, including the needle through my nose, seeing it on me in the mirror at the place, and everything. When I woke up, I was convinced that I had indeed had my nose pierced. Since that dream, I have had this itch to get my nose pierced, and I have not been able to get rid of it. That dream was about a month ago, and I had not been able to stop talking about it. I had pretty ... read more

Nose Piercing!

A little over two years ago I decided that I wanted to get my nose pierced. I had seen this piercing on other women and I always thought it looked very feminine and exotic, and wanted one for myself. This wasn't a spur of the moment decision, or an act of rebellion, I seriously wanted to get it done and had thought through the possible consequences (scarring, infection, getting bored with it, etc.) and had decided I wanted to go through with it. I had a friend that did body mods, and not being 18 or having cooperative parents at ... 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
