My Chelsea Smile

I've been into body mods for quite some time now. When I was eight, I went with my (much) older sister to get her first tattoo, and I was hooked. After much begging and bargaining, my mother allowed me to get my first piercing when I was 15. I got an off center labret, which was not very common at the time. Over the past several years, everyone I see has a lip piercing, and I got frustrated. I hate seeing someone with the same things as me, whether it's a T-shirt or a piercing. After several tattoos and other ... read more

DIY Lip Piercing

About a month ago, I was in my room researching every story, tip, warning, etc. about lip piercings that you could imagine! I was also thinking about how I have wanted one for so long and how my parents would NEVER let me get it done because I already had my nose pierced. Then I decided that I knew enough about the piercing to do it myself without it getting infected and that I was going to get my lip pierced no matter what. I didn't have a proper needle or lip piercing, just a regular nose piercing and sewing ... read more

Cheeky

I am currently an apprentice at Ink Kandy Tattoo in Hollywood, CA, Chris Saint is my mentor. I had been wanting my cheeks pierced for a few months, I had asked Chris if he would want to do them for me, he agreed. I was extremely hesitant about the idea, but he said whenever I want them to let him know and we will do it. So a few weeks had passed and I came out and said "okay let's do it!" I set up for the procedure, obviously because I'm his apprentice, I had never seen them be done ... read more

My snakebite lip piercings!

I started liking the idea of 'possibly' getting a piercing... I thought the septum and lip were cool but decided that lip was the one I liked the most. I'd check out the BME website from time to time and decided I really wanted to get my lip pierced on the side. I had talked about it with one of my best friends who had had a lip piercing before; which he later took off and closed up, but he said he wanted to get it re-pierced. I thought, great! We can go together one of these days and check ... read more

Reincarnation or Reiteration?

For a long time I had been wanting to get some piercings. Maybe it was just wanting to be different, maybe it was a subconscious cry to suburban America "I'm different, so DEAL WITH IT!", right now I lean more towards "I can do it because I pay my taxes like you pay yours...". The first piercings I ever had I did myself. At the time, I was 13 - 14 years old, and angsty to boot. If I decided I wanted something, I did it. Simple as that... So one day after much consideration I decided I wanted my ... read more

My Long Awaited Spider Bites

I have always had a fascination in piercing, ever since I seen my first piercing. I loved it I know one day I'd have many of them. Ever since I was little my dad has been trying to get my mom to let me get my ears pierced. But, my mom has never liked piercing. The only piercing she liked was an ear piercing. But, only on girls. She always said, "Not for guys." So, one day my 6th grade year I went up to my mom and asked her if I could get my ears pierced. Well it took ... read more

My amazing medusaaa!

So I had known for a year or so I wanted some kind of oral piercing, and I knew my mom wouldn't let me get my tongue pierced, so I had to choose a lip piercing. At first, I was really into just a classic off-center piercing, on the right side. After I thought about it more, I decided I wanted a bit of a classier, less edgy location. I thought about it and became dead-set on getting a monroe. They are so pretty and classy, yet still edgy. After a couple of months of knowing I wanted a monroe, ... read more

"Does it go all the way through?"

I fell in love with body modification when I was around fourteen.Before that, I never quite understood why anyone would want piercings or tattoos.I was also terribly afraid of needles.I didn't even get my ears pierced until I was in sixth grade.For those reasons, I never thought I would have anything else pierced.That's changed, because I now have eight holes, including my first lobe piercings.And yes, those were done with a gun at Walmart.In my defense, I didn't know that guns weren't the best piercing tools, at the time.Anyways, let's get to the story of my first piercing that was ... read more

Hopefully this one will last.

So, this is my second time having a lip ring done. I had one done last year, and loved it. It lasted through a trip home (where I had to take it out every day and put it back in every night), and a couple other instances where I removed it. However, I took it out one night for a nice dinner, and it had closed up by the time we had gotten home, maybe three hours later. Very aggravating. I missed it a lot more than I thought I would, considering I got it done the first time mostly ... read more

Not So Hard.

I had recently been debating piercing my smiley/scrumper or what ever you wish to call it. I've always really liked this piercing, and one of my friends has it and gets compliments all the time. I especially like it if the loop chosen is pretty thin, without balls or colors other than silver. Being only fifteen, my mother doesn't actually approve of facial piercing so I figured this would be relatively easy to hide, and I would be able to do it myself. I wasn't worried about doing it myself as I have done a number of piercings on myself ... read more
