Snakebites

I've been wanting snakebites on and off for about 3 years. I got bored one day, so I started looking at pictures online of them, and fell in love instantly. They where perfect - Where I live, not a lot of people have them, and none of them on guys. I wanted to be different, to stand out from everyone else. So I started talking to my girlfriend - who has an apprenticeship - about it, and she said she'd do them for me. That was the easy part. Now to convince my mom. Once I had finally picked up ... read more

My impromptu philtrum/medusa

About a week ago I realized that I could pierce my lip starting from the top of my bottom lip and ending below my lip. Why is this important when I'm writing about my philtrum piercing? Well, when I realized this and found out it was an actual piercing, a vertical labret, I decided I would go to Evolved the very next Thursday to get it done. The thing is Evolved has a buy one get one special on Thursdays. At first I decided I would get the other side of my navel but changed my mind to my other ... read more

Just want to get it right...

I already have more than a few body mods but that same old itch to get another one hit hard. I started out by looking around on Google and BME before finally deciding on the right side of my lip. I didn't have but a little bit of money at the time so I figured the best option would be one that I could manage on my own. My lip didn't seem to be something difficult or something that would require much experience. First things first, I had to get my supplies. This gave me about four or five days ... read more

Another wonderful piercing; my vertical labret

I was sitting at home one day doing a whole lot of nothing and playing with my lip when I came to a sudden realization; it's completely possible to have a lip piercing that started where a labret would be but came out the top of the bottom lip. As soon as I realized this I fell in love with the idea. I was sure such a piercing must already exist and I wanted it. It sounded beautiful and wouldn't have the risk of harming the teeth like a normal labret. I asked a friend of mine who is an ... read more

so thats what I forgot to tell you dad...

I have double lobe piercings and a nose piercing. All were gunned. However before you judge me I would like to say I didnt know any better until recently. All piercings are fine though. But you are not here to read about my lack of knowledge on piercing equiptment though, are you? So I'll get to my lip piercing. For my fifteenth birthday I was supposed to get a scaffold/industrial piercing but when the day came my mother changed her mind. She loathes all piercings ecxept the run-of-the-mill lobe piercings that most probably most people have done in Claires accessories ... read more

my new favorite piercing!

I had wanted a medusa/philtrum piercing for a couple of months. I was hesitant at first because I really like my mouth, especially the cupid's bow, and I really didn't want it to be off-center or have it swell up like crazy. I also wanted it to be perfectly dainty. I had a very particular image of how it would look--teeny and adorable. [I know, I sound crazy, but it's a piercing in the middle of your face! It should be perfect!] I also couldn't decide between getting a medusa and a madonna, but after the consultation of several friends, ... read more

My lip scalpelling

Well it first started when I saw some of these large labrets and I decided I wanted one so bad. I researched it for ages I finally decided to have it scalpelled so it wouldn't take long instead of stretching it and so on. I spoke to a guy I'd heard about called Quentin Inglis from Kalima. He's a really nice guy and I spoke to him at least once a week for a long time and got to know him and he got to know me. I asked loads of things then finally he said come down and see ... read more

Bad Labret experience

Well, I've been wanting to get a labret for years now and finally did it but first I'll tell you how we found the tattoo shop we went to- My fiancé and I heard of this shop the day before Halloween was having $13 dollar piercings. We were very skeptical of this place at first. So we said what the heck we'll go and if it's a hole in the wall, we'll leave. So my fiancé's friend was waiting for a couple of hours when we got there. First impression, It was a nice and clean shop! I'm not new ... read more

My Chelsea Smile

I've been into body mods for quite some time now. When I was eight, I went with my (much) older sister to get her first tattoo, and I was hooked. After much begging and bargaining, my mother allowed me to get my first piercing when I was 15. I got an off center labret, which was not very common at the time. Over the past several years, everyone I see has a lip piercing, and I got frustrated. I hate seeing someone with the same things as me, whether it's a T-shirt or a piercing. After several tattoos and other ... read more

DIY Lip Piercing

About a month ago, I was in my room researching every story, tip, warning, etc. about lip piercings that you could imagine! I was also thinking about how I have wanted one for so long and how my parents would NEVER let me get it done because I already had my nose pierced. Then I decided that I knew enough about the piercing to do it myself without it getting infected and that I was going to get my lip pierced no matter what. I didn't have a proper needle or lip piercing, just a regular nose piercing and sewing ... read more
