A normal eyebrow with a normal barbell

I wanted a piercing for years and years and never had the courage and the information to go get one done. One day I was at my boyfriend's house and I was feeling really depressed because I felt like I was unable to get over my fears. My fear wasn't the piercing itself but mostly the talking to the piercer that goes with it (I know I am weird). Than, my boyfriend who knows me better than anyone knew that I really wanted that piercing so he said : ok I'll go with you to the piercing parlour. Unfortunately I ... read more

My eyebrow experience

I've always been obsessed with people with body modifications for as long as I can remember. When I was about 11 my mom let me get my ears done, and after that I wanted to get more and more! I got my ears done again, and then I got kind of bored with doing just my ears. I asked my mom if I could get other things done but she said no to everything. After looking at pictures of different things I could get done, I was convinced I wanted to get my eyebrow, but I was scared I would ... read more

Rebuilding myself from the ground up.

I remember having hair, in fact, in my dreams, I still have it. It seems bizarre to be defined by one part of your appearance and even more bizarre to define yourself by it but my hair (thick, black, slightly curly, down to the small of my back almost) was so much a part of me that I couldn't imagine myself without it. Yes I know it's pathetic, but we all have our comfort blankets. Anyways, why all the hair talk? well because things went wrong, very wrong, and because of a fairly crappy illness, I lost a lot of ... read more

Liberated eyebrow

The nature of my work had meant that the only piercings I could have were those which could be easily concealed. For this reason I had only been able to have my tongue, nipples and septum pierced. Although I longed to add to my collection with some facial piercings, this was not an option...at least not until last summer. I was becoming relatively bored with the dull routine that was my life, and decided that this would be a good time to take a career break for a year or so, go do some travelling and take stock of things. ... read more

I went poof!

It all started about a month after I got my second nose ring. I was getting a little bored again and decided I needed something else done... School was finally out and I was deciding when to get my ears done. I wanted them stretched but they weren't even pierced yet. I heard from my friend that it would probably cost about $20 more to get them pierced on top of the stretching, and the jewelry I'd need. Then I realized that I didn't really want to bother with all that cos it sounded a bit complicated. I didn't have ... read more

Is that...blood?

A week before my 18th Birthday I decided that I wanted a piercing to commemorate the day of me turning "legal," and another simple hole in my ear was just not going to do it. After checking out tons of piercings, I had settled on getting my tongue done, and I asked my parents what they thought about it and in a rather blunt way they told me if I had it done they would kick me out of the house. For fear of living in a cardboard box on some street corner, I decided to go to my next ... read more

It's About Damn Time!

It all started when I was 12 years old. Whenever I looked at someone with an eyebrow ring, it reminded me that I didn't have one. So I decided to ask my mom if I could get one. And of course, she said no. Who could blame her, I was 12! But she promised me that:" On you're 14th birthday, I'll let you get your eyebrow pierced as a birthday present." But for me,that was to long away. But I decided to get off her back and try when I was 13. A few months passed by and I was ... read more

I should have eaten something before(but then again, that was quite amusing)

I decided to get my bridge pierced about 4 months before it actually happened. My mom was OK with the idea(well originally I wanted dual horizontal eyebrows, both on same brow, but that changed after more browsing through BME.) I had to wait because I had phys ed that semester and my teacher wouldn't allow jewellery in class; it's not part of the 'uniform' (my school's t-shirt and shorts, socks and shoes.) Alot of people, after hearing this, seem to think that I'm implying that piercings aren't allowed at my school, that's incorrect, just in phys ed(well theres a couple ... read more

Great bridge piercing experience.

This is the second piercing that I've had. The first was my septum, which I had done back in February, which is what started my love of piercings. I wanted to get my septum stretched so I booked an appointment at Divine and told them I wanted to come in to do a stretching so they booked an appointment for me. Simple. But later that day I was on BME looking at pictures of piercings where I came across bridge piercings. So after looking at a few I thought about it and realized I didn't know anyone with one and ... read more

Finally got it done!

I had been wanting to get my eyebrow pierced for about a year and a half. During the first few months, I kept tossing the idea around of getting it done - but at the time I had first started wanting it, I knew my mom wouldn't really approve of it, and I didn't think I could really afford it or go through with it. I put the idea aside for a while when I went to college - but then I came back to town to visit and show my friends around, and they wanted to go to the ... read more
