Midlife crisis/temporary insanity made me feel young again!!!!!

Ok, I am a 38 year old mother of 4 who less than a year ago would freak out over people with any kind of piercings other than the "normal" lobe piercing. I just would think "why in the world would they do something like that"? A little more than a month ago, I discovered the answer! The answer is simple: Its a matter of personal expression and to freak other people out! I have always freaked out a bit when I would see someone with different piercings. I guess I was just an old fuddy duddy, but now since ... read more

Don't Let the Fear Overtake You

For the last four years I've wanted my eyebrow pierced, but I was scared because I'm a needle-phobic. My ex-boyfriend got his done, and I went with him. His eyes watered and he said it burnt. My old friend M.C got hers done and said it was painless.. and then I got my labret done, and thought that since it was painless maybe I should think about getting my eyebrow done. I talked about it for a few months, bugging my family and friends about it and so finally, two weeks ago, my room mate was going to get hers ... read more

Bridge or Bust - I

Even though it was my first, my bridge I found to be a pretty easy piercing. I was really worked up for it (a sixteenth birthday gift from a friend), calling around the city and talking to friends and piercing artists alike about the best place to go. I phoned a number of studios asking questions about sterilization procedures and how long appointments took. Both Eye of the Lotus and Third Eye were recommended to me a number of times, for their cleanliness, the quality of the jewelry they used and the experiences that my friends had there. Eventually I ... read more

A Long Road To My Awesome Eyebrow Piercing!

Well here goes my wonderful experence with my eyebrow, lets see I was in 8th grade and it was over Christmas vacation but I'm getting ahead of myself. Prior to this I had been researching eyebrow piercings on this web site and others for about 2 weeks, my mom made a deal with me that if I was mature and responsable enough I could get it if I was going to take care of it. My mom had never been against me getting my eyebrow pierced which was pretty cool because i was already half way there! One night after ... read more

Still not a mid-life crisis.

Yeh, like I was saying, I'm a 45 year old photographer, and I got my ear done, but with a gun, hurrumph, now onward and upward, or something.... I've recently been taking pics of tattoos and piercings, the idea started with my first Goth shoot, and stuck in my mind. While I like the LOOK of all that leather and PVC and stuff, the tattoos and piercings have really stuck in my mind. I've loved the idea of tattoos for years, ever since school I suppose. Well, that's not strictly true. When I was in school, it was a needle ... read more

Convincing Mom and Pop

I've always wanted an eyebrow piercing. After five years of wishful thinking, I decided it was time to convince the parental units. Since it was almost Christmas, they were asking me what I wanted. I racked my brain and couldn't think of anything but my so-longed-for piercing. I knew my parents wouldn't go for it immediately, so I approached my aunt with the idea. She agreed to help me. I decided to ask my mom first, because as they say, the man is the head of the household, but the woman turns the neck. During a drive to visit my ... read more

My first facial piercing.

Some people go for piercings purely on a fashion basis or because they think it's cool. I want piercings because I like them and they do look good on some people, let's just hope they look good on me! I'm not quite sure how I got into piercings, I suppose I just saw someone with them and fell in love there and then. From when I was 10 I had tried to convince my mum to let me have piercings on my face but in hindsight any person letting a ten year old have facial piercings would be a bit ... read more

Beautiful Eyebrow Barbell

I have wanted an eyebrow piercing since 7th grade. That being six years ago I was totally psyched for it when i turned 18, unfortunately I didn't have the money for it on my birthday. I saved up and got my friend Hippy Dan to take me to Big Joe and Sons in White Plains. We went out to lunch with our friend Jen first. We ate at the Westchester mall. It was good we went because I hadn't eaten all day, and yes, we know that is a bad idea. We got to the studio around three in the ... read more

my glorious eyebrow rings

One day I sat and thought to myself how great it would be to have an eyebrow ring. Then I thought about how many people actually have eyebrow rings. So I decided on getting four. Two in each eye to be exact. There was a lot of conflict between me and some family members about it. But I was too determined to not get them. I did all I could to get them, I even went as far as not eating a few times out of the week just so I could get the money to have them. Sorry, but ... read more
