Shouldn't It Have Stopped Bleeding By Now?

I had managed to resist having a second lip piercing for quite a while before I caved. I kept telling myself I had two fresh anti (forward) helix's to care for and I had promised my friend we would get our side lip piercings done together but when it came to my three year anniversary with my boyfriend I couldn't resist any longer. We went down to Brighton on our anniversary day with the aim of buying each other a piercing to celebrate the three years together. He had decided on getting his anti helix pierced on his right ear ... read more

Against the Grain

I have wanted my lip pierced for years but being the needle-phobe I am, I was skeptical that it was ever going to happen. I hate getting shots, blood work, or any type of experiences that involved pain that I know about before-hand. When I think of a lip piercing, I see edgy, beauty, and life. Those are all things I've felt like I possessed on the inside but have trouble showing because I'm shy. My 19th birthday was coming up soon and since I was saving up money for vacation and am a poor college student, I knew I ... read more

my smiley story

So I've always liked piercings you could hide. I got my septum done because I could let people see it when I wanted them too, or I could hide it if I needed to. I was always weird about getting things done, I would usually get super nervous and then get them done randomly. I got my lip done one time cos I was bored and had money and time. I also got my ears done one time while walking around in hollywood because my friend asked if she could do it. One time I was in Venice with a ... read more

Snakebite for Christmas

I had been wanting my lip pierced for a few years and I finally scheduled to get it done in December, 2007 (The 16th of December, to be exact.) The first time I approached my parents about a lip piercing was when I was 10, about to turn 11, believe it or not. I had done research, watched some videos, read some stories, the works. I was eager and much to my disbelief, my father agreed to let me get it but couldn't be bothered to take me, and my mother was against it and refused to take me. I ... read more

snake bites take two

So after being horribly burned by the first shop I got my snake bites at and losing them because of my job I decided to get them re-pierced. I had a new job that would allow me to keep them in so there was no risk of me wasting my money again. I talked to my mother about it and she said she wanted to go with me again to avoid another incident. Even though it was her friend who recommended the last shop an she was with me every time I was down there. We pulled out the phone ... read more

Easiest piercing ever.

I began loving piercings after I finally got my lobes pierced when I was in 7th grade. By the time I turned 18 and had the absolute freedom to pierce whatever I pleased, I had my industrial, tragus, lots of lobes/cartilage, belly button and nose piercings. My mom became pretty lenient about piercings by the time I was 16 or 17 but the one thing she DID NOT want me to do was "pierce my face" (except my nose apparently). I don't remember where or when I saw it, but it seems like I've wanted my Monroe pierced for all ... read more

Drinking Tea Through A Straw

After getting my nose pierced at 14, I always thought I would avoid any more facial piercings. The only others I had were three in my left lobe and two in my right, which I never actually wear and although I enjoyed the look of them, I didn't have a burning desire for anything else. However, by 16, I was starting to change my mind. My younger sister had got multiple lobes, nose, tragus, cartilage and naval pierced in a short space of time and needless to say, I was beginning to feel a few pangs of jealousy. I had ... read more

and its called a monroe

So I was dating an apprentice at the Dragon's Den about a month or two ago. Since he was the apprentice he had to work from shop open to shop close, which meant me going up to the shop and sitting sometimes if I wanted to see him at all. So it was one of those days I decided to drop by for a visit and wait for closing time, so I could take him to his house where we were having a small get together. Anyway as I am sitting there waiting for him to get off of work ... read more

Wonderful Lip Ring

As soon as I saw a lip ring for the first time, I knew I wanted it. I started asking my mother to take me to pierce my lip when I was about 15. She said I was way too young and made up any excuse not to take me. My father also had a big problem with me putting a hole in my "pretty face" but I, of course, only wanted to enhance it. So I gave up asking for a while. About 6 months ago, my interest in lip piercing was sparked again for whatever random reason and ... read more

Love At First Sight

One day whilst browsing through BME for a new piercing, I came across the vertical labret, I'd seen loads of standard labrets, but this one was completely new to me. I loved that it doesn't pose the problems you can get with standard labrets such as gum erosion and chipped teeth etc., but mostly I just thought it was gorgeous, incredibly sexy and really seductive. I wanted it desperately. However, I was convinced that I didn't have the right face for facial piercings, was terrified of scarring my face, and I really couldn't see my parents being too happy about ... read more
