The Monroe I'll never forget...

nroe Piercing has a certain quality to it unlike any other piercing. The role that it plays is to mimic the same image of having a beauty mark on your upper lip either on the right or left side. For those lucky enough to be be born with a delicate mole on their upper lip are the fortunate ones, and for those without, there is always body piercing, and with its creativity the chrome mole was born. At the age of 16 and living in the bush, in a village of about 1400 people, there were two 'freaks' in the ... read more

Super labret.

wanted a labret for a while prior to 'the big day'. My mom, her friend, my brother and I had driven to Kingston for a day of shopping and of course my new piercing. I had researched many piercings and knew what I was getting into. I had been to the studio a few times prior and talked to the girl at the counter and the piercer, both very friendly people who seemed rather intelligent. Buddha's Belly is a fairly new studio so I hadn't heard much about it but after I met the staff and checked out the atmosphere ... read more

The Monroe from Hell!!!!

ever written about other piercing on BME because I've never had to leave anyone foresight. But, after my monroe from hell, I really think people should think about the places they attend before they entrust their bodies to those places. I think the best place to start is how many piercing I have and mention that I've never had a problem. I have 4, 10 gauge nipple rings, 2, 6gauge navel rings, 10 gauge hood, christina, 2 tongue rings, one 10, one 4, seven surface piercing on my torso, tongue webbing, stretched ears and a number of cartilage piercing that ... read more

Labret demistyfied

il Labret demystified. After I got my tongue pierced a year ago with a 8ga 5/8" and a circular barbell 10ga septum, on October 5th 2000, I decided that I want to get one last piercing. I decided on a Labret. Walked in the studio, followed all the cleaning procedures and pierced me with a 14ga fishtail labret jewelry with a ½" primary bending to accommodate swelling. This was the least painful piercing I ever had. The tail of the labret sits horizontally along the bottom gum line. The first 4 days, the inside of the lip swelled to almost ... read more

Lip Piercing, absolutely NO pain.

for about a year I've wanted to get either my lip pierced. However, my parents have ALWAYS stood in my way, I'm 17, and for most places the legal age is 16 (in Toronto at least), legally I'm allowed to do it, but without my parents kicking my ass, well, that's a hard task. My parents seem to be hellbent that putting a hole in your body is wrong. I have no clue why? I've fought with them over this a million times. They are not religious, so I see no foundation to there opinions. However, there opinion has always ... read more

ah, a horrible labret

first facial piercing, i decided to get a labret. i liked the way it looked, nice and centred, and it was something i could still get a job with, most likely. so i drove down to primal urge in new hope, where i get everything done. it's a very clean place, and they've done a nice job with everything i've had done in the past. i told them what i wanted, and they said that they did "lab-rays" with a cbr so it would heal better. i was a little put off by the 'lab-ray,' i felt as though they ... read more

my eyebrow piercing....

been wanting my eyebrow pierced for about oh....3 years beforehand. And even though I found all kinds of informational things I could never convince my parents to let me go and couldn't find anyone to do it for me while I was underage. So after the long wait I finally reached my 18th birthday and was ready to go. A couple days after my birthday, my friend and I were driving and we passed a tatto parlor in our neighborhood. I decided, this is it, it's now or never so we decided to check the place out. I was kind ... read more

the lip ring that scared the parents!

start out by telling you how long I've been waiting for this piercing. When I was in middle school, I started designing my tattoos and trying to learn as much as I could about the whole "scene." I in turn got turned on to the piercing culture as well. I talked my parents into letting me get my ear pierced for my 16th birthday...with a gun (AGGHHH!!It turned out fine but I had to start stretching from a very small hole) I have since gotten 3 more ear (1 more in left (18 and 14, still got a ways to ... read more

Third Time's A Charm!

rst time I got my tongue pierced was at a huge concert, the HFStival...bad idea. I was afraid it was going to hurt alot, so my best friend sat next to me and I squeezed her hand. It didn't really even hurt at all! The woman who pierced it, pierced it crooked, so I went back about an hour and a half later, and they did it again for free, this time it was fine. About three days later the barbell was hitting a nerve in my tongue making the tip of my tongue numb! So, of course I took ... read more

My new pierced lip!

lways been fascinated by piercings, but never thought I could have one myself. This is because my parents are against any form of body modification, and on top of that I'm afraid of needles. Because I can't stand much pain and heard all the horror story's about how painful getting pierced is, I just would read about it and look at some photo's on the Internet. The more I began to know about piercings and the procedures, the more I wanted to experience it myself. Because all the stories I have red are different, I didn't know what to expect ... read more
