Self-piercing, idiot style.

Around the age of 15 or 16, I decided that I really wanted a lip pierced. I don't remember exactly why, but I had a lot of friends with facial piercings and was at an impressionable age... so the outcome is pretty logical. I researched facial piercings for weeks poring over BMEzine, and other websites with extensive piercing FAQs. I knew of some local piercing places that would do the job for me despite being under the age limit-- but I was 16, and had absolutely no real income. Despite my extensive amounts of internet research that all basically pointed ... read more

MY DIY LIP PIERCING

My Do It Yourself Lip Piercing! So I had wanted a lip piercing for years now and was too scared to have it done by a professional and didn't want to pay $70 for it. I mean what if I didn't like it on me? So about 6 months ago I thought what's a more personal experience than doing it yourself! (which I wouldn't recommend kiddies.) So I sat at my laptop and googled other peoples Do it yourself experiences and nearly scared myself out of it! Some people said they ended up in Hospital and everything. Now I was ... read more

My Cheeks

It all started in early June, with convincing my parents to let me get my cheeks pierced for my seventeenth birthday. I had facial piercing's before but nothing quite so 'dramatic' as my cheeks. The whole idea of getting my cheeks done had been tossed around a bit in the months before, but now that it was getting closer to my birthday I figured why not give it a shot and ask. The parents were a bit shocked at first, cheek piercing's aren't exactly something you see everyday. But I was persistent in my quest to get them done. By ... read more

Measure once, cut twice - a cautionary tale

Sometimes - quite often really - when I am feeling stressed or anxious about something I get the urge to get a piercing. Many times this has resulted in impromptu play piercing sessions, but on other occasions I've gotten piercings which I've kept. As of late I have thought more and more about getting a smiley piercing. I don't think it is particularly attractive, but it seems like fun, and feeling is mostly what I'm after when it comes to piercings. I haven't gotten around to getting it, so today when the thought of a new piece of metal through ... read more

My monroe piercing

I just got my monroe piercing yesterday and I have wanted a monroe piercing for about four months. I started begging my mom about getting one,she said no for awhile but finally I decided that I would ask her if I could it as my 16th birthday present (since my parents wouldnt buy me a car). About a three weeks before my birthday I went to my mom and I told her I really wanted the monroe because it was feminine and stylish (I love piercings and my parents dont really like them), so after asking her about three times ... read more

My 28th birthday gift!!

The last piercing I got done was my tongue like six years ago. I was suppose to get my half sleeve finished for a birthday gift however due to finances I had to change plans. I was bummed and needed something done it was my 28th birthday tomorrow I needed some kind of change, anything. So I browsed the internet ending up of course at BME I found myself looking at piercings. Then I saw the vertical labrets the girls all looked so beautiful. I read a lot of story some said clamps were used others said just a needle ... read more

I just can't leave well enough alone

I really like the look of vertical labrets, and I did some research and found that no part of the piercing is inside the mouth. Therefore, they don't cause any tooth or gum damage. This is important to me, because there has been much money spent on my teeth over the years. I went to Industrial Primitives last night and asked for Gill, who pierced my lobes for me a few weeks ago. I told him I wanted the vertical labret, and he said he had to take care of a couple of other people first, and he'd be with ... read more

Beautiful beauty spot

On Sunday the 28th August I decided to get the piercing I have wanted for a while, a Monroe/beauty spot piercing. I went to Trendez and first looked at jewellery for a bit because I was nervous, then I asked to get the piercing then filled out a form with all the usual questions. I had to wait for about half an hour as it is always busy on Sunday as it is $20 piercings (inc. jewellery) so me and my boyfriend went and looked at shops for the half hour. When we got back I was told to wait ... read more

11th Piercing. (including my ears)

I started off just wanting a standard labret for the longest time. But I recently decided on the vertical labret instead. A choice I don't regret. My mama used to object to facial piercings.. no "if, ands, or buts about it", kind of thing. But after my sister got her bellybutton, she gave in and let me get mine. Then, my sister got her tongue, and again, I got mine. Then about 3 days ago, I got my vertical labret. I did a hell of alot of research on my new piercing before I proceeded on to get it. Ya ... read more

My lovely new Medusa!

Let me start with telling you a bit about myself. Since my first ever piercing a year ago, my left eyebrow, I've become more and more addicted to getting them - well, I'm not sure if it's the actual piercing themselves or the pain that comes with them. Although I'm building a tolerance to the pain these days so I suppose that's a bit unfortunate. Well it's addicting either way! I'm sure most of you enthusiasts out there know what I mean when I say that ha ha. Since then I've had multiple piercings - lobes (two stretched 0ga and ... read more
