A DIY lip experience

Around the beginning of freshman year, I had started getting into body modification. It all started when I saw a couple "scenesters" with their lips pierced and I had said "I want that." Back then, I only wanted a piercing for superficial reasons. I didn't want it to "fit it" or to "be cool." But I didn't want it because it was a part of who I was. Nowadays, I consider body modification to be a part of who I am, and I believe that nothing can ever change that. I compare it to the nature vs. nurture philosophy, body ... read more

Yet another lip ring

It had always been my plan to get my labret done again after I had to take it out because it was slightly off center when I did it myself. The surprise was that I found a ride and was able to get it done a lot sooner than I expected. I usually have to wait at least a month after figuring out what I want to be able to get a ride to get it. I won't go through with the waiting in the lobby because it' was the exact same as it was in my other two stories. ... read more

Years later, I still love my monroe/madonna

Long before the advent of "the scene," when the monroe piercing was still pretty uncommon I suddenly decided I needed one. I was nineteen and feeling rebellious, and my mostly liberal family that had allowed me to dye my hair whatever color I wished and dress however I liked expressly forbade facial piercings. The parlor I picked out on a whim as well. It was called Electric Circus or Masquerade or some such and was on the corner of 12 mile and Woodward if you know the area, I hear it isn't there anymore. I initially picked it because you ... read more

The beginning of the problems...

On my 18th birthday I awoke to my best friend knocking on my door saying "Get ready we're getting pierced!" I showered, got dressed, connected to the internet and immediately started browsing BME. My friend had no idea what this site was, or what it did, and I simply informed her of the just of things and told her this is where I got the idea for my vertical lobe that I had gotten done two years earlier. We decided to get facial piercings, lip piercings to be exact. I was afraid of gum erosion and "destroying my teeth" so ... read more

Il mio bellissimo monroe

La prima volta che ho visto un monroe stavo guardando MTV. Hanno trasmesso un video delle Sugababes: una delle cantanti aveva questo bellissimo piercing. Ho pensato: "che idea carina, un piercing che sembra un neo!". Da allora sono passati tanti anni, ma questo piercing mi è rimasto impresso!Io adoro i nei sopra le labbra! Finchè, quest'estate, l'idea di farmelo è diventata davvero persistente. Ciò che mancava, però, era il coraggio. L'idea di un ago che mi trapassa la carne mi terrorizzava letteralmente, nonostante tutti mi dicessero che non è doloroso. Ho rimuginato per mesi, ho guardato praticamente tutti i video ... read more

Awesome, go get your vertical labret done!

So...I'd seen a picture of this piercing over christmas and as soon as I saw it I had to have it. I'm the kind of impulsive person that does something not necessarily without thinking but once i want it, I want it. I showed some pictures to my friends and to my parents, I don't think my dad would even notice and my mum didn't really like it but that was not even slightly going to stop me. I didn't want to get it done at home cos it's so much more of a big deal back home whereas at ... read more

My first one

I have always been interested in Tattoos and body art ever since I was a little kid. I used to get in to trouble as far back as kindergarten for writing and drawing on my self, and I have just been fascinated with them and the tuff pirate's and bikers from the movies I used to watch when I was a kid. I have been getting tattoos since I was 20 but did not have any piercings. Until in August on my 29th birthday that I decided to get my first piercing, I had been giving it a lot of ... read more

A happy, centered, large labret

When I was young I remember seeing a gentleman with a labret piercing at some point in my youth. The details of situation, time, or place escape me now but I found it so fascinating that the simple piece of metal sticking out of his lip stuck with me for about ten years before coming to fruition in a shoddily done "center" lip piercing. I was fairly young and uneducated about piercings, but I still liked it and kept it for just over a year. At that point I chose to remove the poorly placed labret and give it plenty ... read more

my first lip piercing

On the 21st December 2007 I got my first facial piercing. Before this, I had only ever had my ear lobes pierced. I've been wanting my lip pierced for about 4 years now and I had pestered my parents for years, but they finally agreed to let me get the piercing. First, I went straight there after school with my parents and a friend. I told the piecer what I wanted done and she took me through the whole procedure. Of course we had to sign a consent form and go through the procedure of checking my general health and ... read more

My 2nd lip ring...now their snakebites =D

I have been waiting to get the other side of my lip done for a long while now, about a year I think. Because I know someone, who I met online, who said she wanted to do it for me. So I said yea, and decided that she can do my piercing, because I trust her enough to shove a needle through my flesh and make it look good. I finally managed to organize a day where I can go into the shop where she was working that was a) On my school holidays b) At a time that was ... read more
