You're sticking that where?!?

ll took place about 2 yrs ago. I was 16 at the time and had wanted a tattoo for a while. So my friend and I decided to play hooky from school and go get our stuff done. (She wanted nipple pierced.) So off we go to South Street Tattoo (in Philadelphia) because she got her tongue done there and they didn't card her. We go in, and let me say before I go further, never go to this place. It's sterile but just barely. The people don't tell you anything, just take your money and pierce you. Oh, and ... read more

Isis's labret spike

weeks ago I get my tax refund back, I was broke till then and desperately need of new shoes and groceries so of course the logical thing to do would be go get an expensive hole in my face, right? I had wanted a lip ring in the center of my lip for 6 years, maybe more, but economics, location, or just plain fright of a needle going through my lip always held me back. I was sitting on IRC bitching about how there are no refutable piercers in my area of Ohio and how most tattoo parlors I'd visited ... read more

I trusted her

my labret pierced on my 18 birthday. The year before at 17 my Mom had taken me to get my tongue pierced. But this time she wouldn't cooperate at all . I went to this piercer named Dana at Ritual Body in Dallas, TX. I'd seen her do two of my friends before this time. She did their tongues and eyebrows. At this time I pretty much trusted her and I liked her technique. She was very courteous and she was willing to give deals. She always had really cool music playing too, I think her boyfriend was in this ... read more

Piercing through scar tissue is very painful.

My Medusa..

ptember I had finally decided to get my tongue pierced, when I did that,I knew there was no turning back. But,I decided to wait for a few months, to make sure I still had "the urge". Flash forward too December: I got my left eyebrow and bridge both pierced by X-mas. I was already planning my next one, but my piercer and freind Eddie recommend I wait at least another two weeks for my next piercings, because of some problems I had with my left eyebrow. Knowing her was a professional, I know as he wished, I waited *Exactly* two ... read more

Labrets, gum recession, and piercing retainers

e Piercing *** I got my labret almost two years ago, and it was my first professional piercing. I was pretty nervous because I'd never been pierced before. The anxiety was made even worse when I mentioned the piercing to a friend of mine and she wanted to go along. I had no idea how bad the pain would be, and I desperately wanted to avoid looking like a wimp when I got pierced. I agreed that she could go along, and we went to Forever Yours Tattoo in Anoka, Minnesota, about 30 minutes north of Minneapolis. We had both ... read more

Ode to my Labret

everyone! This is an ode to my labret. For those of you who may not know, your labret is the area from your lip to where your lip and gums meet. My labret was my first piercing...quite possibly of many. I must admit that I was fairly nervous going into the procedure because i've never poked a hole in my body before....but I must say I love it! I have had a tattoo for a while now but this was much different. I did quite a bit of reasearch and studying up on the subject before getting it done. I ... read more

Self Labrum Piercing

ing the old "if you want something done right, do it yourself" adage (after a lame attempt by a piercer who shall remain nameless; he fucked-up my custom fishtail jewelry, pierced me off-center, and I had to abandon), I just VERY successfully pierced my labrum! I went to lunch with my girlfriend yesterday, and saw a girl with a labret stud, and I said, "Shit, I wish mine would have worked-out." Before I was ever pierced, and even after, labret jewelry has always been my favorite, aesthetically -- still is! I wondered about doing it myself all the rest of ... read more

My lovely little Medusa

ally got my medusa pierced. I had been wanting to have another needle stabbed through my face for quite some time now, and I was really indecisive about what exactly I wanted to get pierced. I already have my labret, tongue and hood done, and I really wasn't quite sure what exactly I wanted to do. I knew it had to be something on my face, because now I finally found a job where they accept piercings. So, after many times of coming on BME and looking aimlessly through the piercing index, I finally found one that I could settle ... read more

Labret+paranoia=My Story

ne- October 9th, 1999. The Place- Adam's house in Dixfield. My girlfriend and I went to get pierced that day, a fateful day representing my triumph over high school, over my parents, and in a lesser manner, over myself. Here is that story. My girlfriend and I began as a pair of friends talking about getting pierced... Nothing more, nothing less. Slowly, our love blossomed and bloomed, and we decided the piercing would end up being something symbolic, something meaningful. I discussed a septum ring with my mother, who was totally against the idea, and since I live in her ... read more
