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

Botched Vertical-Labret Repierce

When I was 16 I decided to get my vertical labret pierced after much research on BME. The piercer who did it also previously pierced my: septum, monroe, and lip, as well as my boyfriend's: center lip, snakebites, and septum. He used (special-order) internally threaded jewelery and made me feel at ease especially as he explained EVERYTHING step-by-step. The piercing wasn't too bad, he pierced slowly with a 16-gauge needle (as he guided the needle) from bottom to top and there was a slight burn as the needle exited through my lip. The jewelery transfer was easy and I was ... 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

The happiest and friendliest piercer's in Chester!

So, basically I wanted to get another piercing as I wanted something more than my existing piercings of my ears and my vertical labret. As I loved my labret so much and got so many compliments off it I decided to get something else near my mouth pierced. As I moved to Chester less than a year ago I was unsure about where any piercers in Chester where. I knew of one near Tesco but that looked a bit amateur and dirty in my opinion. Then after speaking to a friend I learned of The Piercing Bodz who are located ... read more

Crooked smile

Around Christmastime when I was 18, I decided it was time for a change. I needed to add to my forever-growing repertoire of body mods. I already had my septum pierced and wanted to add to my work in progress that I like to call my corpse. My septum piercing was a 'please stop running away now, k thanks' gift from my mother. It took place in my filthy garage by a big biker dude who does tattoos. Piercing was obviously not his forte! He had me sit in a plastic lawn chair and looked very befuddled by his shiny ... read more
