Philtrum/Medusa

For the last year or so, I've been really interested in body mods. I have stretched my ears and had my lip pierced. It's weird, because for me, I tend to develop an attraction toward piercings that I generally hated before. I never liked the look of stretched ears until a year ago, and until a few months before, I wasn't too fond of the idea of a philtrum, or as it's commonly known, a Medusa. A few weeks before I got it, i remember seeing this gorgeous girl who had her upper lip pierced. With a little help from ... read more

My first piercing ... didn't know what I was asking for

23 April 2008 I had seen quite a few pictures of my friend on Facebook with the many piercings she used to have. Naturally, after having been bitten by the "piercing bug" the month before when I got my ears pierced (with a gun), the idea of a facial piercing intrigued me. Following my slightly obsessive habits, I spent the month and a half between getting my ears pierced and the 23rd of April making Google find every bit of piercing information available. I read up on tongue piercings, lip piercings, eyebrow piercings, and even an industrial ear piercing. What ... read more

My first non-ear piercing!

I have always been fascinated with the body modification culture ever since I can remember, particularily piercings. I had admired those covered in their own personal expression for years. Always wishing that someday I would adorn such modifications myself. As I grew older my love for body modification grew, and before I knew it, I had devoted all my free time and effort into informing myself of various different modifications. I think it's safe to say that I LIVE for this. By the age of 10, I had already gotten many ear piercings, but due to strict religious parents, no ... read more

Mijn lippiercing

De afgelopen paar jaar heb ik veel over piercings nagedacht. Na er 13 te hebben (waarvan 6 geschoten in mijn oorlellen, 2x piercing in mn oorlellen, 2x helix, neus, navel 2x) wou ik er nog steeds meer bij, maar wist niet zo goed waar. Na een geruime tijd van nadenken kwam ik toch steeds weer terug bij een lippiercing, maar doordat mn ex het niet mooi vond heb ik het idee van de baan geschoven. Uiteindelijk werd het niets met de persoon in kwestie, en ging ik weer nadenken over een lippiercing. Ik liep een tijd rond met een klein ... read more

I had to put metal in my face before I liked it

I spent a very long time hating the way that I looked. I was your typical teen girl with ridiculously low self esteem. I led a very self destructive lifestyle and treated my body like a peace of trash. That all changed with my first piercing. I moved out of my parents home when I was 18 with my boyfriend, Tim, now my husband. I had always wanted my lip pierced and mentioned it Tim to see what he thought. "I want you to do whatever makes you happy, " was the response I got. I played around with the ... read more

Button your lip

It's been a very, very long time since I've had a new piercing – in fact, recently I've taken a lot of them out and downsized my half-inch earlobes to 5mm, because I was kind of bored with the whole piercing thing. (I know, shoot me now!) My first body modification love has always been ink, with piercings as a secondary decorative attraction rather than the Big Deal for me. But, despite this, there are still some piercings that I need to have to feel complete – the ones I've kept (my tragi, rooks, tongue, hood and vertical labret) are ... read more

Lip Piercing

I made the final decision to get my lip pierced after my sister in law showed me hers. Now, I had always wanted to pierce my lip, but never could because at the time, I lived with my parents and had promised them that I wouldn't get anymore while I was still living under their roof (though I've gotten most of my lower body piercings and my tongue done at that time.) There was the small problem with my job not allowing facial piercings while working with customers. The thing is, my sister in law was the LAST person I ... read more

Great Labret Experience in Madison, WI

Over the past month I've done a lot of research online/on BME about labrets and looked at tons of photos. Do I want a lowbret? A lip ring? Off to one side or in the middle? Lip rings are not something I like. Being in my 30s, I think that is definitely more of a younger person's thing. I was looking for something I would keep for a long while, like my tongue ring. I liked the idea of it being right under my lip but with how full my lips are and where my teeth are behind the lip, ... read more

Vertical Labret

I had been contemplating getting a piercing for a few months before I decided on my vertical labret. I still remember the first time I saw the piercing, I thought it was unbelievably cool, and I knew that I wanted to have it! I had heard in several forums that it was a very painful piercing (though, I do *sort of* like pain, so I wasn't TOO worried). One of my friend's knew someone at Sinister and had arranged for me to get it pierced there. The night of the piercing, literally 30 minutes before my appointment, I got a ... read more

Didn't hurt a bit!

I've decided for the past while that I wanted my lip pierced. I work in a place that was really against it and told me it was not allowed. I looked through the employee manual and didn't see anything mentioned, plus coworkers had mods so I kept asking and tried to be patient until finally my lovely manager said yes. I kind of decided to do it on impulse. Don't get me wrong, I put thought into it but I decided to do it right before my shift was going to start. Since it was a piercing I didn't have ... read more
