my monroe/madonna piercing experience and why i suggest to wait until you can get it done professionally

Well I'm 16 years old and I had always wanted a facial piercing for about 2 years previously. I had always wanted either a monroe or nose or medusa, maybe even my septum -one of the 3. The problem was, my parents really dislike the whole 'tattoo/piercing' type of image. They don't understand why people do such things to their bodies... For about 3 months I had been constantly nagging them to at least let me get a monroe and always, they said "NO!...how many times do we have to say this? We're not letting you get one, you can ... read more

My Lip Piercing at Bulldogs in San Jose

I had my lip pierced when I was younger, about 18 years old and had to take it out for a job. Now that I'm 24, no longer working and a full time student, I realized I could re-pierce my lip and enjoy it for a few more years until I get back into the working-world! My friend had recommended this place to me down the street called Bulldogs in San Jose. Since it was a word of mouth recommendation, I didn't do as much research as I should have. Bad mistake. I went in as a walk-in on May ... read more

My Lip Labret At Last!!

After living in Cardiff for six months and being out of my parents house (who strongly object to piercings) I decided it was time to get my lip pierced... At last! Been thinking about it for months but was worrying about the pain of getting it done, didn't think too much about the after pain, just the needle! I have always been worried about piercings but loved the way they looked, I figured at least with my lip I could watch what the person was doing, where as with ears I was a whole lot more nervous. It sounds silly ... read more

Marilyn Monroe would be proud.

So in 8th grade I got an itch for a new piercing. I have my ears pierced and have them gauged up to a 0. But I never got a real, different piercing before. So I searched around the internet for places to get poked. I thought about my nose for a long time, but then I came across the monroe. Which I thought was absolutly gorgeous. I was a bit apprehensive at first, because mostly I was scared of the pain. But I was ready for it, because I wanted it really bad. I wound up getting it pierced ... read more

Many mistakes, but eventual happiness.

Well I have no idea where my fascination with piercings originated, but it seems to me that I've always been interested. So about a year and a half ago i decided that I would get my lip pierced. At that time i was only 14, so it was a bit extreme. Another factor being that my parents hate anything out of the ordinary because they are pretty ignorant people. So I thought I would do it during the summer, you know, how much could it hurt, getting grounded for like a week, blah blah blah. Being that I was only ... read more

Lip Ring On a Summers Day

This is I suppose a little coming of age-esque tale. It is the tale of my first facial piercing. I have multiple holes in my ears, two of which are stretched to 4's, but I decided I just wanted something more visible. Since it was either a lip ring or a septum I decided to do a little research. I read a lot of the experiences and checked out a LOT of pictures. Finally, I decided on a lip ring. I liked the way they looked and aftercare seemed like no big deal, plus I have allergies and blowing my ... read more

First piercing (snake bites)

When I was 13 I decided I wanted to get my lip pierced. In normal teen fashion I fought and fought with my mother and father over it. My mom told me to ask my dad and my dad's response was just "I don't like the way it looks" to which I came back with the standard its my body speech. This went on for about 3 years in that time I got a job, got my grades up, and started to drive. After leaving the subject alone for a bit I reproached it with a more calm attitude. My ... read more

"Whoah. I'm bleeding"

Well. It had been six months since my last fix and merely gauging my lobe just wasn't keeping me satisfied, so it was time for a new addition to fuel the addiction. I decided on a labret, because I hadn't had a lip piercing before, and I decided it was a good place to start my facial project. It was the first Monday of my two week holidays that I decided to get it done. Partly because I couldn't wait any longer and partly because I'd get a good two weeks of healing done before I had to start worrying ... read more

Facial piercing isn't exactly the done thing in Finance!

I'm not like the majority of people who write their experiences on BME, I get piercings and tattoos purely because I like how they look, none of my tattoos or piercings have any particular meaning – they just look good!! Probably about a year ago I was browsing the galleries, looking at all the piercings, and came across, totally by chance, pictures of lowbret piercings. I saved a few pictures to my computer, and went back for a look every couple of days, not really sure if I actually wanted this piercing myself, or just liked looking at it. After ... read more

Vertical Labret.

I've wanted to get my lip pierced since I was 10 and experimented with self-piercing at 14-15, which was stupid and I got really, really lucky that I didn't end up with some horrible infection. I let all of my self-pierced holes close up once I hit 17 and decided to wait until I hit 18 and could go get it done professionally since my mum wouldn't let me have it done before that. I was first introduced to the vertical labret piercing when I went with my girlfriend to get hers done and have been madly in love with ... read more
