Bad off-center lip Experience

3 months ago I decided that I needed more facial piercings. I already had a septum but I felt that could to easily be hid with a retainer, and that getting two off-center lip piercings would be a kind of commitment to my love for body modifications. So one day I decided I had nothing to do and the time was right for me to finally get my lips pierced. So I called Jayson at 13 B.C. and make sure he was free, shaved my beard off (as Jayson recommended, he said the placement would be easier to do), ran ... read more

My phatty lip piercing

wanted my lip pierced for a very long time, since I was about 11 years old. I'm 17 now and I begged my parents to let me get it done for my 17th birthday. They were hesitant about it cause they didn't like the idea of my having a piece of metal in my lip. My brother and sister helped me convince my parents that it was all right. So finally about 2 weeks of hassling them they finally gave in. My sister who is 22 told me that she would pay for me and it was my birthday present ... read more

It aint so bad...

long as i can remember i had been begging for a piercing. Originally i wanted my eyebrow but later moved past that and wanted my lip pierced. My parents arent very open minded about self-expression and the like so when they discovered the tatoo on my back they declared that i would never ever get any other piercing or tatoo so long as i live in their house. There was a very legit reason to why this was unfair. My sister sarah, who is 22 and at college had always been allowed to do as she pleased, yet i could ... read more

Lip ring adventure.

out a year now I've wanted my lip pierced. When my friend Adam said that he would be able to do it, I thought hard about if i should wait until i'm 18 and go to a pro, or just have Adam do it now. So after about a week of contemplating, I decided i wanted it now. So after a few days, and after trying to schedule it around dental surgery (for the Novocain) fell through I just decided to do it. So my friend Brooks picked me up and we went to see Adam who was waiting at ... read more

Pierced through the heart

ngs were never my thing. I have five tattoos and plans for several more pieces, but i never thought that a piercing would suit me (although i constantly debated with myself about getting pierced). When i was younger, i wanted to get my septum pierced, but with consideration of snowboarding, the concept of runny noses combined with metal in my nose seemed too irritating to handle. This all changed about nine months ago. I have always adored the asthetics of labret piercings on females (dont get me wrong, i like them on males as well, but it seems to help ... read more

Labret Me Tell You a Story

een interested in body modification for most of my life; even as a kid I was drawn to the characters in movies with tattoos and piercings. My interest in body modification is for primarily aesthetic reason. Finally after years of my pleading my parents, mostly my mom (Thanks Mom!), allowed me to get a tattoo for my seventeenth birthday. My mom signed for me and band of Celtic knot work found a permanent home on my ankle. I couldn't stop there and exactly a year later when I turned eighteen I got a large tribal piece, incorporating a simple Celtic ... read more

My self-done, kept-for-five-hours lip piercing

right, I had a lip ring for five hours. And I'll give you the whole story from start to finish... My whole life, I had been fascinated with piercing- sometimes in good ways, sometimes in bad ways. When I was 13, my parents finally let me get an earring. Me being the naive kid I was, I had no idea about professional piercing, and just figured ear piercing was always meant to be done by some dumb teenager at the mall. So, needless to say, it was done at Claire's at the mall. I wish I had a bad thing ... read more

Train rides to conduct pleasantries for the holidays

k back on the times when i thought about any kind of body modification as a tool of expression and self identity always tinkers with my experience of a "first" piercing. It was a cold December and after a show in Boston a few years back where the holidays seemed to turn in a self expressive swing. The show was rad, Ten Yard Fight, Diecast, Floorpunch, Saves the Day. All kids there seemed to be showing off all the X-mas goodies they had received. Many kids there were pals, and had piercings and other modifications. The train ride home was ... read more

Dual Lip Piercings.

not having been pierced in about two and a half years, I finally decided that I wanted to get some work done, and my lower lip was the target. I had been pondering the idea for a while, but seeing as I couldn't afford it, I had to wait. I got a little anxious to get it done, and I think that I made a mistake. I happened to meet a guy that was an apprentice at a local shop, and we talked about piercings for along while. I asked him about his experience level, and he seemed to have ... read more

My Labret

am 18, living in a 24-year old body, so my mom would say. You see, I still live at home. Not cause I like living there, but it is the most economical place to live. And cause my mom and step-dad are still pretty cool...except when it comes to piercing. So I say to my mom 1 week before I plan on getting pierced, "Mom, I am going to get my lip pierced Friday night". She about crapped her pants. Next was my Catholic step-dad, "Mike, I am getting my lip pierced on Friday". He threatened my job. I work ... read more
