Why you shouldn't trust your friends to pierce you.

In the summer of last year, I finally talked myself into getting my septum pierced. I had found septum piercings to be interesting for a while, but I had no way of getting it done. I didn't want to do it myself because I wouldn't have even known where to begin ,so when the opportunity for someone "trained" to pierce me presented itself, I knew I couldn't turn it down. This aforementioned "trained professional" was actually a friend that had recently moved back into town and claimed he had went through and eight-week body piercing course. While I'm sure these ... read more

What are you doing with that needle?!

I got another piercing,I already have my madonna and 6 ear piercings (a few which I recently just reinserted after almost a year of not having anything in). My piercing choice of the day: a nose piercing! I spent about 2 weeks trying to convince my parents. My dad wasn't crazy about it. He's more straitlaced. My mom gave up trying to convince me otherwise. They kept making stupid jokes about it too, like when I sneeze blablabla. Anyways. I was totally pumped for it the whole week. Finally it was the weekend. I went to Far East Plaza (I ... read more

Seriously Simple Septum!!!

I guess I share the same feelings on the septum piercing as nearly everyone else whos story Ive read.... at first I was repulsed by it. But somehow my opinion drastically changed -and I honestly cant identify the point in time or person it was on that I decided... '' hey that looks pretty rad! '' haha! But I got a hankerin' for some new holes it my face and a dainty, little, tight to the nose 14g septum piercing seemed to be the answer. Already having my nostril, monroe, and nipples pierced and my ears gauged to 7/16 I ... read more

My septum experience

I first developed an interest in body modification about a year ago and started off with getting one of my lobes pierced. Since then my passion for modifying my body has escaladed until a point where I see my modifications as a part of me, and not just an addition. Since getting my lobe pierced a year ago I have had a number of others including several more 'basic' piercings such as lobes(stretched), cartilage and a tongue piercing, to more unusual and less common piercings like a tongue web, double inverse navel and a prince albert. As with a lot ... read more

My first real piercing

As an 18 year old from a fairly conservative family, I never thought that I would pierce anything beyond my ears. Of course, this all changed when I discovered BME. Going through all of the articles and pictures, nostril piercings caught my eye the most. It was classy, feminine, and subtle. Its significance in Hinduism also held some appeal. I was wary of how it would look on me though because I've always thought that I had a big nose. However, after perusing through different pictures, I saw lots of girls with noses like mine and they looked great. Now ... read more

my awesome septum

A few months ago I decided to finally get going on my plans for my long thought about septum piercing. I had wanted one for about a year and I was in love with how they looked. I had recently moved from a very small town to Portland but I was attached to the piercing shop down in my hometown. I had already gotten pierced there once, so I knew that piercer (sort of). So one weekend I ventured down there and asked the piercer to make an appointment to get my septum done. She took one long look at ... read more

It did hurt, but it looks perfect!

I've always been interested in piercings, especially the look of little metal pieces of jewelery in odd places on the body, but after my lobes getting infected and the holes enlarging so that the back of the earing actually fell out through the hole, I told myself I would never again put holes in my body. This happened at the age of 12. I just turned 21 about 3 months ago, and I was talking to a friend of mine about body mods. He was telling me about the piercings he was saving up for, one of them including a ... read more

First Piercing Ever. The Nostril

When I was about 12 I decided that I wanted my nose pierced. It was an obvious "No" from the parents so I didn't even bother to ask. Now that I'm 16, it seemed a little more likely they'd allow me. I've had a neon pink hair-do since about 6th grade, so what could a nose-ring do to my "image" in the work place. I live on Long Island, New York so I had many options in terms of where I'd like to get it pierced. Many tattoo shops are pretty stingy and dirty around here though. I decided with ... read more

First piercing other than lobes!

I'd been thinking of getting my septum for some time before I finally decided to in September of 2006. My parents had given me money to buy some clothes, so of course, i headed to Queen Street mall where i found a few cheap things. By almost the end of the day, I'd realised I still had about $40 spare and a half price card for The Piercing Shop, which is located in Queen Street. I wasn't sure whether I should get my septum pierced or not, because of my parents, but my friend was telling me you can just ... read more

A 14 year old with a septum piercing!

Ok, so, some background: I've always been into piercings since I was 9, when I first had my ears done. I think what made me all the more eager was the fact that my mum is so against body piercing apart from normal lobes. She doesn't even let me get my ear cartilage pierced. Well, I have but she got so mad when she saw them and made me take them out. She absolutely hates facial piercings and I know if she finds out about this one, I'm grounded for life! Anyway, I have really wanted quite a unique piercing ... read more
