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

Septum Piercing Profesionally Done- Finally!

I've had my septum pierced a twice before by friends, not the smartest thing to do. Both times, I didn't come out with a septum piercing. I recently turned 18 in September so I thought there isn't really anything I would like more on my birthday than to get my cute septum piercing professionally done. Finally. Years ago I first saw the septum piercing online and fell in love. It's perfect, I can have my own facial piercing and have the lovely ability to flip it up and hide it. Always a plus if you have a conservative family or ... read more

Nostril Piercing (My very first facial piercing!)

This is a story of my first ever facial piercing: my left nostril. In my family, all piercings are frowned upon. My parents saw my multiple piercings on my ears (AFTER I had already turned 18, mind you) and said, "Okay, you're done." But I definitely was not. I got my nipples pierced (which is definitely a great story for a later time) a little while after my ear-piercing run, and then I wanted another one. I should preface my story with this: I got my dad's approval on my nostril piercing (which is a MIRACLE), because I knew for ... read more

Standard Nose Piercing Greatness

Although nose piercings are not the boldest of facial piercings, what with every other 15 year old girl donning one in the hopes to look badass, I was hankering for a piercing on my face and did not feel like shocking my poor mother to tears with an eyebrow, anti-eyebrow, or lip piercing. Those will come in a few months or so. Pansyness aside, I boldly strode (ran) to a local shop here in Santa Cruz and requested the piercing. (I chose this particular shop because my friend had just gotten her lip pierced here and recommended them- cheaper than ... read more

painless septum

I have always thought about getting a piercing, but my parents are not very big fans of bm so I never got any of the piercings done. I recently moved out of home and started thinking about bm again. I used to not like the appearance of septum piercings but once I moved to the bay area I saw a lot more of them and realized that they take many shapes and forms. I started thinking of getting a septum piercing, and researched it heavily. I consider myself to have a very low pain tolerance so I was not sure ... read more

Septum piercing

As with quite a few of the mods I now have or want, I used to hate septum piercings. I just really didn't like the look of them, but I found them starting to grow on me. To start with I just started liking the look of them on other people, but didn't think it would suit me and still thought I'd never get it done. However, after a while the idea started to really appeal to me and I thought it would actually look pretty good. Unfortunately my boyfriend at the time really hates septum piercings, especially on girls, ... read more

OUCH! You Bastard!!

After the almost septum a little over a year ago, I decided that I wanted it re-doing and definitely for the long term. The hard part was getting around my mother, who links septum piercings to the 70's punk era and a lack of self respect, or respect for anyone and anything. I made a deal with her, that if I got it done I wouldn't tell her and I'd have it flipped up out the way whenever she was around (and considering I live with my parents this would be almost all the time.) I didn't know when I ... read more

My amazing septum piercing.

A few of my friends came to dunedin for a few days and one of them decided to get her septum pierced. I thought "oh cool.." and really thought nothing of it. My parents are dead against any form of piercing. Even ear piercing! So i never really thought about it. i've always wanted a facial piercing but always thought about the fact that i cant hide it! Anyway. When she came out with her new piercing I was shocked at how amazing it looked. What I loved even more about it was that she put a circular barbell in ... read more

I Feel Like A Change.

I don't know about you, but occasionally I get an overwhelming urge to change my appearance. Sometimes I cut or dye my hair. Sometimes I try a different colour eyeliner. Today, I decided I wanted a new piercing. I don't have many piercings. In my right ear, I have my conch and two cartilage piercings and I have the left side of my lip pierced. That's it - not even my earlobes are pierced. Fairly tame, and to be honest with you, I'd like to keep it that way. It was only recently that me and some friends were discussing ... read more

Terrible Septum Piercing (x 2)

I'm certainly not writing about my negative piercing experience to deter anyone from having their septum pierced - I suppose I just want to encourage anybody seeking one to consult an extremely experienced piercer. I thought I was going to an experienced piercer - I've had a piercing by this particular 'artist' and it looks great and healed well. I started to get a bit nervous when the piercer repeatedly told an apprentice how difficult a septum piercing is to properly execute. He couldn't decide what sort of clamp to use (and ended up using two different kinds, as I'll ... read more
