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

Septum piercing-bad, but not as bad as they say!

Recently after I had my inverse navel pierced, I really wanted another piercing. I already had five but I am addicted! I decided that I would like to have septum piercing because they look so good on females, and I felt that my nose was one of my strongest features. After looking at pictures and reading experiences on this lovely website, I knew a septum piercing is what I wanted. I had always heard that septum piercings were very painful. In fact, they are supposedly the most painful facial piercing. After watching videos on YouTube of the piercings being done ... read more

My septum

I woke up with that urge. People who have at least one form of body modification will know what i'm talking about, you know that desire to get something, to feel the adrenaline rush of getting a new piercing or tattoo once again, well, I was no stranger to that feeling. Having already had angel bites, side labret, tragus, smiley, nose, 10mm ear lobes and countless other ear piercings, there was only one more thing I wanted. A septum. I had wanted it for a while now by my parents hated it and so did my friends. "Ew, it looks ... read more

Shaking, bleeding and crying in the bathroom stall.

One day, I was on the phone with a close friend. She had been talking about piercing her smiley and her web, and also piercing her lip again. Of course, being irrational as she is, she took it upon herself to pierce her bottom lip, and to pierce her smiley. I had been researching piercings for quite a while, but never quite made up my mind about what I wanted. You see, living with strict European parents can be quite a challenge if you want to get multiple facial piercings. They would never let me do even my nose, at ... read more

Piercing my Nostril myself

Hi, I'm 15 years old and I've always been really interested in body piercing. I had three ear lobe piercings done professionally, and I had my ear cartilage piercing done about 4 months ago professionally. My parents thought the cartilage piercing was the last piercing I would ever get. That wasn't exactly my intention as far as they knew. The next piercing I was hoping to get was my nostril. I always thought of it to be cute, and beautiful, not trashy like my parents think. I knew that if I asked my parents to take me to get it ... read more

Stretching my septum.

I pierced my septum a few years ago, but never gave much thought to stretching it. Actually, up until about a year ago, I had never known stretching one's septum was even possible. That is, until I met a man in line at the grocery store (a very sexy man I might add), who had his septum stretched to about a 0g. I asked him what size his septum was and he responded with, "Big enough to stick a Starbucks straw through." I was amazed. I had never seen anybody with a septum that big. I found this very attractive ... read more

My Long Awaited Nostril Piercing =^.^=

Before I start, I shouldn't have to mention that my parents (especially my Dad) are totally against the whole idea of piercings and tattoos. Aren't all parents? Teehee. So I finally got around to ringing up the most popular piercing studio in our area to book my nose piercing. Unfortunately, their piercer was sick that day, so I booked it for the following weekend, and yeah, I was pretty bummed out :( I didn't really want to wait that long, so I rang Divine, a shop that I often visited which was in The Hutt, close to where the other ... read more

My first nostril piercing!! [Of two

I've had my septum pierced for about 9 months, and I've been thinking of getting something else. I never thought I'd get a nose ring because they're pretty common, but I thought if i got it done and put an actual ring through it then it'd be a bit different. Until I looked up some pics, where I came across the *brilliant* concept of a double nostril piercing - two on one side. And so it began... My brother said he'd pay for it for Christmas, but we'd get it done now. So we planned to go today (Sunday) at ... read more

Getting my septum pierced

Okay, So I've always been interested in septum piercings. I like the fact that they aren't too common where I live and they can be hidden if needed to. Once I decided that a septum piercing was right for me, I began my research. I wanted to find a piercer that had experience. The septum piercing would be my first official facial piercing so I wanted to make sure that it turned out right. I visited a few shops around the Southern Maryland area. I went to about 6 or 7 shops. The first 5 said that they didn't have ... read more

A piercing to remind me that I'm still young and rebellious...

Turning 25 felt like moving into the next chapter of my life. I had already finished my studies, worked too much in jobs that I loved but had to move on. I left the city I spent the most beautiful years of my life and moved to another. I also got a "very real" job as a journalist in a mainstream news broadcaster. Things looked perfect, all besides the fact that I had a job that is exhausting and sucks away all my creativity. In my new working environment I looked different from the very start. People stared at my ... read more
