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

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

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

I finally completed my septum piercing!

Well I used to think that septum piercings were completely gross and I couldn't see why people liked them. Well just months ago I started looking into piercings,tattoos, and other body modifications. I currently have 2 holes in my ear lobes, both sides of ear cartilage, nostril, lip, and navel pierced. I pierced my ear lobes, nostril, and lip myself. I bought kits and made sure everything was sterile both times. So about a week ago, the idea of piercing my septum just struck me. My lip and navel are still healing but I wanted another piercing. I talked to ... read more

The non anniversary septum

So to explain the title of this experience as it probably sounds a bit strange.It's the 12th of march 2008 and what would have been my 3rd wedding anniversary the first one since we got divorced. I had been thinking for a long time I needed something to mark the occasion to make the day symbolize something more then the day I entered into what was a doomed marriage. Like a hell of a lot of people that are one here I never liked septum piercings especially on women so it had never been a thought to cross my mind ... read more

Homedone Septum !

This experience is about my 16g septum, that was done by a, pretty much, apprentice piercer in my friends bedroom, the home of two dogs and a cat ;). I don't think anyone should have anything pierced the way my friend and I did. When I first saw a septum piercing when I was in about 5th or 6th grade, I've always wanted one. They looked so good, and the idea that I could actually look like Fernand the Bull excited me. I was about 12 or 13 then, and my parents would never have let me get one, they ... 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
