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

Madonna, pas que pour les "poufs"

Voila, Je m'appelle Kristal, j'ai 17ans et j'habite en Suisse. Mon premier piercing, un helix (après les lobes, si on peut appeler sa un piercing)s'est très bien passé. A suivi la langue, toujours excellent. Puis, Voulant me démarquer de ma soeur, j'ai cherché quelque chose de plus original. J'ai d'abord pensé à un labret décalé, mais vu que c'est le nouveau "trip", j'ai abandonné. Puis je suis tombée amoureuse du madonna. Vous me direz, sa fait un peu vulgaire, surtout à 13ans comme c'est la mode maintenant. Mais enfin, passé les préjugés, je me suis dis que tout dépendait de ... read more

Self done smiley

Okay to be honest, I am not just another safety pin wielding dumbass. I'm also not someone who has a mommy that "doesn't approve" of modifications. I just like to pierce myself on my own because I like the sense of accomplishment. It also makes me feel more like me. Im not trying to be different, I just try to make myself feel more "right". I don't make it my main goal in life to try to seem rebellious or unique. I really just want to be myself. Anyway. One day I was sitting around thinking about getting a new ... read more

Lip Piercing in Geelong

It all started a year ago, at a party with a lot of my friends. Everyone was sitting around having a good time, drinking, smoking and just chatting. After everyone had a bit too much to drink as they always seem to do, I started kissing a girl who is now a good friend of mine. She had two lip piercings on her bottom lip on either side, called snakebites. I loved the way these felt when I kissed her, but at the time it didn't cross my mind that I should get a piercing. Over the next about 10 ... read more

Second-Time Piercing on International Drive, Orlando

So, I've been thinking about this for awhile. Really, I have. I had an eyebrow piercing done in Kansas City, where I'm from, and had to take it out for work, and I knew I wanted another piercing, but something different. After moving to Florida to attend Full Sail and was no longer working somewhere I couldn't have a facial piercing, I decided now was the perfect time. I drove down there in the afternoon, which was a bad idea because traffic was horrible. Well, probably typical for I-4 W at about 4:00pm on a Thursday, but very congested for ... read more

It's crooked but I still love it

I've wanted a lip piercing for quite some time but due to jobs and braces, I wasn't able to get one. After finding out the dental horrors a lip piercing caused, I was even further discouraged. One day, I was spending time taking those horrible quizzes you find everywhere online, and found the picture of a lip piercing I was not familiar with. I researched it and it turned out to be a vertical labret, a piercing that would not touch my teeth or gums in any way. It was perfect! I got my braces off, moved away to college, ... read more
