painful experience, but worth it

For almost a year, I had been wanting to get my lip pierced. At first, I wanted a vertical labret, but then decided that it would be really painful and leave 2 scars if I ever had to take it out. So, the next best thing was a plain labret. Right down the middle, on my bottom lip. I had all of my materials handy, everything was sterilized, and so forth. I didn't have a piercing needle, so I took one of my mom's sewing needles and put it in rubbing alcohol and what not. I knew that was a ... read more

My Monroe experience!

I have an older sister and she started getting piercings at the age of 13. I was really enviouse of the whole experience and figured that maybe it was time for me to get my first piercing, (aside from my ears). I was originally thinking of my belly button, but I heard bad things. I was also going through a faze when all I cared about was Marilyn Monroe. I then heard that was actually a piercing called a Monroe. I saw pictures of it on google and decided that was going to be my piercing. My mom agreed and ... read more

Labret Piercing

I had debated whether or not to get my lip pierced for over two years. I'd always loved them and been interested in them, since I was little. Every time I met someone who had the piercing I was always so jealous. I was only concerned about scarring if I was to retire the piercing. One day, I was in town with two friends, and decided, "Hell, lets just do it, I've got the money, and I'm ready for it". This is how I like getting things; acting completely on impulse. I had looked and asked around for good piercing ... read more

NEW PIERCING Snakebites. Love Them

So my birthday was on march the 16th and I've wanted snakebites for a while now, I got given the right amount of money for it and persuaded my mum into taking me seeing as I had just turned 15 and wasn't legally old enough to get them by myself. So on the 19th we went to Cambridge after I got back from school. I wasn't nervous until I was in the shop but could see the studio was clean. When I was 12 I got a navel piercing and since then I've wanted more piercing, although I have a ... read more

My lip, a needle and some anti-septic cleanser.

Disclaimer: I don't not recommend self-piercing to anyone. Consequences are too great to wager. Think about it, have you ever seen a surgeon perform on him or herself? Then why would an untrained person try to? I'm not sure if any of my piercings are typical. I've done them myself (Not recommended). Everyone said that piercings bleed, but none of mine have. A lot of people said it would take about 2 months to heal for my lip and there would be about a week of swelling. Again, I don't think I'm normal because I had hardly any swelling and ... read more

My first ‘real’ piercing- my lip.

I had been considering getting my lip pierced for a while. I looked it up, researched it, and read about it. At first, I considered doing it myself. After reading though many horror stories, I decided that this wasn't the best approach. I talked to my mom, and she disapproved of the piercing. It took me a month to convince her, but finally, she told me that I could. I was nervous going. First, I went to Dragon FX. They flat out told me that they would not do it, as I was under 16, and it could cause oral ... read more

Lowbrets

It all started in a town named Waco, Texas... I'm in a band called Breathe Carolina. Recently we have been touring like crazy and have been able to call Texas our second home. We looked at our itinerary and ended up in Waco, Texas where the promoter happened to also own a tattoo/ piercing shop, and was awesome enough to offer free plugs as well as any piercings we wanted for free! When I heard this I almost lost it in excitement! I began to think of all of the piercings and or other mods I wanted (which they also ... read more

Lip Rings Are Fun!

I am a beast of impulse, if I see something I like I will make it mine but if too much thinking is involved I will typically get disinterested and walk away. This was not the case with my labret. It was going to be my first venture into a non-lobe piercing and I had given it a lot of thought. I cleared things with my work and my parents and had semi-arranged a trip to Anomaly Studios to get it done. It was to occur after grad night, an evening (8pm-4am) to goof around with friends while enjoying the ... read more

Impulsive Piercer

I just got my lip pierced a week ago and I love it. I remember taking my earrings out when I was about 12 and playing in the mirror by putting them around my lip, pretending I had a lip ring. I just thought it was so cool, and bad ass, and sexy, maybe how some perceived smoking at that age. I kept doing it as I got older, putting earrings on my lip, I was just too scared to pierce my face. I told everyone at work I was going to get one for my birthday and we all ... read more

Finally! My self done lip!

So for a little background about myself: I am 16 and I currently have 18 piercings. My piercing obsession started when I saw my best friends' boyfriend with facial piercings. Before that I never really like piercings. I had begged my mom for my lip piercing but she always said "no" and that I could get anything on my ears though. So I settled for ear piercings and she let me get an eyebrow but that rejected. I have 4 experiences of piercings on my IAM page so go check them out. 17 of my 18 piercings are in my ... read more
