Dermal Punched 8 Gauge (3mm) Nasallang

Back in the early days of January, 2010, an idea started forming in my head. Fresh from having seen James Cameron's new box office colossus, Avatar, I had an itch in my nose. An itch for a Nasallang. I won't deny the connection. Seeing the Chief of the Plains tribe with his epic nose piercing, I found myself craving just such a distinction. Perhaps exacerbating the situation, was the fact that I have a penchant for disabusing people of their preconceived notations. Being that I was also finishing my bachelors degree in Physics, what better way, I thought, to demonstrate ... read more

once upon a time

About a week before my holidays I decided to get my septum piercing done. I had wanted it for a long time and this seemed like a good opportunity since I could let it heal without anyone at work being able to notice it. I tend to look at such things with doom and gloom so normally tend to come up with a reason why not to do it and this at least gave me peace of mind since I could pretend I wasn’t really going forward with it. Then Feb. 1st came and I was dubious as hell. I ... read more

My Long-Anticipated Nostril Piercing

I've been into piercing from the time I was 12. I was fascinated by helix piercings (which had just started coming on the mainstream scene) and I wanted one very badly. Eventually I did get one, and since then I've been (not so) patiently awaiting my next piercing. So what would it be? I looked at lip rings for a few years, then decided they'd look silly on me. I never really thought about piercing my nose, until my stepmother suggested it to me the day after my high school graduation. I gave the matter some thought, and ultimately decided ... read more

Septum, times two!!

So, my septum piercing. I'd wanted one for a long time but for one reason or another never had it done. At the time (this was in 2007) I had snakebites, a monroe and my tongue pierced and was debating getting my septum done. I finally decided one day that I'd just go ahead and do it. I was with a few friends and we all walked downtown together. The shop is conveniently down the street from my university so I would often see flocks of rebellious kids go in groups to get piercings or tattoos. In any case, I ... read more

ode to septum

It all started with a boring afternoon. I felt invigorated to get myself a new piercing and I was noticing how easy it was to get a septum pierced. I've never pierced myself before, but I was broke enough to do it now. I bought myself a 14g sterilized hollow needle and got a friend that knew how to make a man push the limit. After 5 minutes of pain and sorrow, I had myself a septum at 16g. I knew it needed some space to relax and didn't take much advantage of the moment, so I let the piercing ... read more

Tried and True... Mostly

It seems to me that many of my modifications have been the cause of some duress, if not later some humorous afterthought. Throughout the lives of many of my piercings, events occur that either put them at jeopardy, cause me some sort of harm, or result in putting me in a bad position. For the most part, I can look back on these experiences and laugh. I have had my nostril pierced for probably a little over three years now. It was my first piercing that really went against my parents' wishes. Previously I had only had my ears and ... read more

Septum Piercing (With Clamps, Painless)

I recently turned 18, and I decided it was about time I got a piercing for myself. I have my nostril and navel pierced, as well as my tragus, and previously had my lobes stretched to 5/8". My tragus and nostril were both pierced at Tan-tastic, the studio I went to for my septum piercing. It is clean and reputable. I asked Sharron, the piercer, how much the piercing would be, and viewed my jewelry options. The establishment doesn't pierce with retainers, as people have complained about them falling out overnight, causing the piercings to close up. I chose the ... read more

On being the piercee AND the piercer

Note to readers: Although I did many of my own piercings, self piercing must be done with EXTREME CAUTION. Screwing up your own piercings is not fun. Also, I may have pierced my friend's nipples at home, but this is not something you should attempt unless you have had experience. I had watched many nipple piercings and had permission from the piercer I apprentice under to try a nipple piercing. I also had my notes from observing in the shop. I do recognize that it might not have been wise to pierce without supervision. I've been piercing various parts of ... read more

My little story

Well, to start off my nose piercing is not my first one and it will not be my last. It was June of last year and I was wanting my nose pierced for about six months. As we all know women, tend to change our minds well lets just say, often haha. So after waiting for what I thought was long enough to talk myself out of it, I made my decision, I was getting that night come hell or high water. Being very excited I called my best friend, to come watch my make an ass out of myself ... read more

Getting my nose pierced on both sides!

This is my first story so bear with me, but I am really excited! I will do my best to give advice and share my story with you wonderful people! Recently, I got my both sides of my nosed pierced. Now this is not my first body mod experience. I got both nipples and an industrial in both ears when I was 18. Now that I have recently turned 19, I was itching for some more piercing. So I did some looking on BME and I kept coming across people who have both sides of their nose pierced. As a ... read more
