My Self-Pierced Bridge Experience (and the Brother who Almost Fainted)

Ok, I guess I should start with a bit of background first. My name is Zack and I grew up in a family where piercings were something only the 'freaks' of the world did, well at least that's why my grandparents led me to believe. Well, about three years ago I got my left ear pierced with intentions on stretching it (I saw someone I knew with gauged ear lobes and I had to have some) so after months of persuading, and many promises, I got my ear pierced. I thought it was the coolest thing in the world and ... read more

I'm now known as "The 4-Eyed Girl"

I've contemplated getting my bridge pierced for a few years already. I never got to do it, mostly because college and my rent are sucking up pretty much all my money, and also because I usually have bad luck with piercings with rejection risks like eyebrow ones. But after researching a little, I found out it'd be a lot less likely to reject than I thought. So I told myself I had to find the money and get it done. Two weeks ago, I was walking around town and wondering what I could do, I was kinda bored and my ... read more

El momento mas Vergonzoso de mi vida

Bueno, esta es mi comica historia, seguramente se van a reir bastante aquellos que ya tienen piercings hechos. Fue hace mas o menos un año, yo hacia tiempo que tenia muchas ganas de hacerme un piercing y para mi cumpleaños el que en ese momento era mi mejor y mas grande amigo (ahora la relacion paso a cosas mucho mayores), me reagaló la posibilidad de hacerme el piercing que tanto me gustaba y hacia tiempo queria. Nos escapamos del medio del cumpleaños para ir al local donde lo iba a hacer sin decirle nada a nadie, cosa de que nadie ... read more

Ballerina gets an eyebrow peircing!!!

Yep, you got it right- I am a professional ballet dancer--and ballet dancers are PROPER. WE are not allowed to have any visible piercings or tattoos apart from tiny stud earrings in earlobes. Ballet academies like the one I lived in until I turned 14 are totalitarian societies, so until recently the idea of piercing anything other than my earlobes didn't cross my mind-it was simply impossible. For professionals, of course, it is not a written rule-but if you show up to an audition with a facial piercing or a tattoo, there is no chance in the world you'll be ... read more

No pain! That's all I care about.

I don't want to bore you with my whole life story that leads up to me getting my eyebrow pierced (because frankly, it's not all that interesting), but I'll say a little bit about what lead up to my decision on this piercing. This was my first piercing, aside from my standard ear piercings that were done when I was about two. Originally I had planned on piercing my lip, but that didn't work out. I ran the idea past my mom and well, lets just say she didn't take it too well. She threatened to kick me out of ... read more

Bridging the boredom

It was another boring as day at work and I had a lot of time to think. I decided I needed another piercing, but what? I wanted something a little different but not too extreme, something aesthetically pleasing to me. I remembered how cool IAM:v_lup2us's bridge looked, and hadn't actually ever seen anyone else around here with one, so decided upon this as my next piercing. After work I stopped into Insane Ink (Dee's shop), this is starting to become a weekly ritual of mine, and had a chat with Dee for a bit. After a while I asked if ... read more

Absolutely Honest - The skinny on my eyebrow piercing.

Well, I'm twenty-four and just turned twenty-four a few days ago. I've been entertaining the idea of getting my eyebrow pierced for several months but I, like everyone, was nervous about this new idea. How much would it hurt? That was my main question. Things like, how long will it take to heal were next in line, but my pain threshold is very low, so I was worried. I think what actually convinced me to do it were the stories on this site. So many of the eyebrow piercing stories swore it was practically or completely painless and after reading ... read more

I did it myself!

I've had my ears pierced since I was younger and I loved them. For a few years now I've really wanted a piercing other than my ears. I knew it would never happen though. I had asked my parents about it around a year and a half ago and they said no. And I knew they wouldn't now because they wouldn't even let my sister get anything done and she was almost eighteen. I had pierced my ears myself before, and gauged them, and I had thought about doing something else my self, but I never thought I could ever ... read more

Eyebrow pierced and shaved at 14

Eyebrow piercing and shaving at 14 My family is into piercings, and I like them myself, but there was no way I'd be allowed an eyebrowpiercing at the age of 14. I mean I even didn't ask, I knew the answer already. I had asked about nose and earcartiladge before, and the answer is always : yes, later. Or sometimes : no, maybe when you're still crazy enough at he age of 21. So what happened 2 years ago when I was 14 was quite funny. There was this theatre competition (I'd never heard of it) of experimental and new ... read more


About half a year ago, I took my yearly trip to Phoenix (I live in Wisconsin, mind you). Of course, this time, I brought a friend with me. I had been into the body mod scene for a couple years, and I had planned on getting something done while I was in town. I had my heart set on a facial piercing, and I already had a list in mind. My friend already had a facial piercing in mind as well, along with a tongue piercing. We called the shop beforehand and asked if they did these certain piercings. When ... read more
