Bullwinkle?

I might as well start just like everyone else does, because I can't think of anything else to start with! I had been wanting a lip piercing ever since I heard the word "Piercing", which was about 13 years old. But through the last month, I was set on getting it, but never bothered. Until two days ago. My fiance, Scott, was in the opticians having an eye test, and I was sat with him. They took him in, and when he came back out, he told me he would have to stay longer [they might have found something serious ... read more

Best Birthday Gift (so far)

For my 15 birthday I convinced my mom to take me and my twin sister to The Moon flower (a piercing studio) that was close by in my town. I knew I wanted the vertical labret from the first time I saw it. We walked into the store and went to the front counter and told the lady we what we wanted.Once we said what we wanted she went on a big rant asking us if we were ready for the responsibility of having a piercing and if I could handle having to bring Listerine with me to rinse my ... read more

The toughest lip he's ever pierced

As my fellows in the modified community can relate, about a year ago I got the piercing itch. With a fully healed tragus, an inner conch piercing, and a set of stretched lobes under my belt, I was itching for something more adventurous. It did not take more than a few minutes of perusing BME for me to find the vertical labret. I was instantly drawn by its simplicity, symmetry and elegance. As I researched further on BME Encyclopedia, I was thrilled to find that there were few to no risks usually associated with normal lip piercings, such as gum ... read more

Thank god for guinea pigs

This experience is actually not about a piercing that I got but about one that I gave. I myself have been pierced over 35 times now. Some have been repeats, but I am no stranger to the needle. A few years ago I was with a guy who wanted to open a tattoo shop and asked me to do piercings for him. It never came to pass but he taught me a lot about piercing. I have been telling people forever that I know how to do piercings but no one seems to put their trust in me. I don't ... read more

Smiley Piercing is Making Me Frown

So last week I was a little bored and a little bummed to say the least. Exactly one week ago my friend Stephanie and I decided to go out and spontaneously get pierced together. I was in a crappy mood and she knew this would cheer me up so we jumped in my car and headed off toward Penrith to go and see Joeltron at Wicked Ink. It was a fun drive, I'm glad I wasn't responsible for directions though (because I am terrible). We arrived at the studio and had a browse around, made an enquiry at the desk ... read more

Second times a charm?

So I've been longing to get my snakebites done since I was in the 7th grade. I like symmetrical piercings, and I had always been interested in other cultures and in my mind I would always see things in ways that other people didn't understand. I love the idea that my body is a temple and I can decorate it the way i want, and that meant piercings. The problem was my dad though, he says that ear piercings are for women, it took me six years to have him agree to get my ears pierced. But thats a different ... read more

Once is Fantastic,Third is...?

Ah, my first piercing. I was 21 trembling with excitement and ecstatic about getting a labret piercing. I had been thinking about getting it done for the longest time and was now ready to get the procedure done. I was a bit nervous and scared but by the by, I decided to give it a try. I kept having second thoughts but once I had made up my mind about getting my lip pierced, I called up my friend, grabbed my wallet and headed out the door. We went to a place a few blocks away called "Metal Pleasures" which ... read more

Good idea, bad place.

My friend and I spontaneously decided to have a girl's night with alot of boyfriend drama on my part and getting sick of the boyfriend on her part. We were originally going to go downtown to meet up with a long time friend of mine, but spontaneously decided to get piercings first as we passed a parlor. I had my 14-month old son with us, so I knew we had to make it quick. She pulled into the parking lot and I ran like a bat out of hell into the shop and asked if they were still piercing. This ... read more

My Wonderful Monroe

Hello to all you reading my Monroe piercing experience. I've wanted a Monroe piercing for a few years now, to be honest I don't even know what made me wait so long, I guess it was because I had a bit of a bad experience with getting my labret pierced, So I assumed it would be the same with my Monroe. I few days before, I called around pretty much every tattoo/piercing shop in my city. Most prices where outrageous. Dragon and Butterfly was the most reasonable price (I only paid $43, which included my jewellery and a free jewellery ... read more

Bonding with Steel II

For years, I have been eying the many modifications that caught my fancy, slathering away at my monitor and wishing (begging, to my parents) for several of them. Only recently has my family come to accept this, perhaps because they realize that it is an obsession rather than a passing fad. My family in itself has evolved, and perhaps that has lent to the evolution and opening of their minds as far as my own freedoms go. When I was thirteen, barely a few days away from fourteen, I had my nostril pierced, but this only deepened the need, the ... read more
