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

I put a hole in my face

I started playing around with the idea of a lip piercing a little over a year ago. I had seen a few people with them and I liked the way they looked, but at the time I was 16 and could not legally have it done. Where I live you have to be at least eighteen unless you have parental consent. I also knew my parents would never go for the idea; it took me months just to talk my mom into letting me get my cartilage done. After a few months of slipping it into conversation to get them ... read more

My monroe piercing

I had my eyes on getting a monroe piercing for several months, unfortunately my parents weren't so keen on letting me get it, but eventually - they let me. I wasn't too sure if it would suit me or not, originally I wanted a labret piercing but I came to the conclusion that it probably wouldn't look good on me, even though i've not quite wiped this off my list of future piercings to come..., so, anyway, I decided to go for the monroe - it seemed like something a little different. I had my piercing done at HTC Body ... read more

First oral piercing

It's weird, because I'd really never been a big fan of lip piercings. My cousin had three – two rings and then a labaret in the centre, and I really, really didn't like them. They just seemed so big and heavy and ugly, and well, definitely not my thing. However, I saw a guy with one, much smaller, and it kind of made me curious. I already had a cartilage piercing, and an extra lobe piercing, both on my right ear, so I wasn't too concerned with it hurting very much. I floated the idea with a couple of my ... read more

My love lip piercings!

Here lately, I've had quite the piercing addiction. I've always loved piercings, even back in my 'Piercing Pagoda' stages. My mom had my ears pierced when I was a baby. When I was about 14, I started going to the mall to get my ears 'gunned' with my parents. All together, I've had my ears 'gunned' 9 times. (3 lobe piercings on each ear, 2 cartilage on right ear and 1 on left ear) Those were all before I turned 16 and didn't know any better. When I was about 15 or 16, I got my belly button pierced and ... read more

I love my vertical labret! But hated the regular one.

[Recommendations for the vertical labret at bottom] Well, to start off, I decided to get my lip pierced the day after I graduated High School. I took some of my graduation money, and went to the nearest Tattoo Parlor. I went in and told the girl that I wanted my labret pierced. It was a little after midnight [they close at 2am.] and the girl was in a rush to get some McDonalds. So she hastily pierced my labret straight through and I left the parlor with my new jewelry. The next day I left to go to New York ... read more

Being a guinea pig ain't half bad

A few weeks ago I saw a bulletin on Myspace from one of my friends who is a piercing apprentice saying, "Donate your flesh! Get a free piercing!" I read the list of piercings he was giving away and saw "lip" on there, so I immediately wrote him. Now, I have had my eyebrow pierced for 15 months and it still hasn't healed. In fact, it has migrated a lot and it still gets infected and sore! It was my first piercing, and I know I did a lot of things I wasn't supposed to do, like touching it with ... read more

Vertical Labret; not the least painful, but not nearly as bad as others.

I have been wanting a vertical labret for about, three years now, after discovering it on this site. I'd always been too young to get it, and my parents would never approve, so in the mean time I got my tongue, and vertical industrial (through the back of the conch) so you'd only be able to view the bar. But those are other stories. So my "need" and desire for this piercing would come and go in bouts, and I finally took the initiative to get my butt in action, and get it done. I had planned to get it ... read more

Uneven Snake Bites

My mom finally agreed to allowing me and my sister to get piercings for my sister's sixtenth birthday. I had already gotten the left side of my lip pierced on my birthday. and went in this time to get the right side done. Snake bites : ). My mom had been very reluctant to the whole thing, my dad was in China, I think that's why she caved under the pressure. I turn 18 in about two more whole months so she's going to have to get used to it because I'm going all out when I turn 18! Hopefully ... read more
