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

First facial; An impulsive labret. With sexy results.

Before I did my labret I hadn't really thought about facial piercing. There was a time when I was 13 when I thought getting my eyebrow pierced would be the greatest thing that happened since radio was free, but because I have sane parents, they didn't let me. Besides that, I had never really thought about any facial modification. Satisfied, I thought, since last year when I pierced my nipple, I didn't really think I'd be getting anything else done any time soon. Which brings me to the spontaneity of it. My girlfriend and I had been wandering about Toronto ... read more

Embedded lowbret

For my sixteenth birthday in January of 2007, I decided to get myself a present I had been wanting for about 3 years – a labret piercing. Looking back now I wouldn't have gone to the studio I ended up going to, although I didn't really have any problems. After taking care of it just how I had been told my labret healed up perfectly and I was very pleased with the results. About 5 weeks after getting the labret I was itching for more, and started browsing around BME for piercing ideas, none of the facial piercings really suited ... read more

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

My Snakebites - Another addition to an evergrowing collection.

About four months, well in September, I got my first piercing, a labret to the right side of my bottom lip. If I am honest, it was a brilliant introduction to piercing, was a comfortable and easy going procedure, and I loved it the moment it was done. Since then, I've only had one more; my ear, which I am carefully going about stretching at the moment, to cut down on the need for more piercings. Needless to say, it started a craving for other holes in my body, and so, as I have such an obsessive compulsive disorder about ... read more

I Thought Beauty Was Painful !

My first experience with piercing was when I was a child. I was 8 years old when I finally got my first ear hole piercing. To me that was so painful. Because I never felt the pain of needles other that the doctors office. To me piercing was a forbidden art for those who are apart of the brave and strong. Years later I decided to go with the current trend and get a second ear hole piercing. I got it done at store in the mall . When I Got them done , my ears swole up like chicken ... read more

My new Smiley!

Ok, so I have always had a timid love for body mods.... I mean who hasn't. I am however a little cautious about getting one in a clearly visible area, so since I was about 14 I wanted to get under my tongue pierced. I thought it would be the perfect way to show my love of body mods but not really. At 15 I tried to pierce it myself and lost the hole, and thus decided I would never do it by myself again. When I finally went away to university, my roommate confessed that she wanted to get ... read more
