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

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

The Most Hideable Piercing Above the Belt

I had been thinking about getting this piercing for at least two years, now that I have it I am glad I waited so long and had other piercings done first. A little about me and my previous experiences; badly done cartilage orbital that I spent a year painfully healing, though no infections occurred thanks to diligent care on my own part. 0g lobes, forward or anti-helix, tragus. All before the septum, all healed with salt soaks and Dr. Bronner's baby soap. EdD (APP member) did my tragus after I moved to Pasadena and had walked into every other shop ... read more

DIY septum!

So, I've wanted a septum piercing for quite so time now, even before everyone started getting one. I just always loved the look of it, and I've been saying I was going to pierce it myself to allll of my friends for a while. My mom disapproves of all piercings except on the ears and even then they have to be a standard 20g. (She wasn't too thrilled when she saw my 0g ears aha!) I would of asked her for permission to get my septum pierced but she already said no to my Monroe, this was going to be ... read more

The day I had my nose pierced

Right, as you have gathered already (hopefully), today was the day i went to have my nose pierced. Infact, I had it pierced approximately 35 minutes ago (would have written this sooner, but I did have to make the long walk back from town (with a costa coffee for good measure!! Well, i did deserve it) Anyway, I finally plucked up the courage to have it done. I wouldn't have said I was scared or worried at all, because in my eyes, having a nose pierced isn't that much of a big deal at all compared to some modifications people ... read more

dermal punched septum

Im no stranger to body modification. Being now that I am castrated, tongue is split, face tattooed and various other tattoos done willingly. I have decided to share my dermal punched septum expierence. My septum was dermal punched at a 0 gauge By Brent of bodyrites a long time ago. Before I get ahead of myself, let me say I was always fond of large gauge septums. I remember as a child seeing tribes have large bones going through their noses, wearing them with pride and they were well respected in their tribes. But being a child, I was always ... 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
