Retired lip ring, Eternal regrets

When I was fifteen, I thought I would be tattooed, but never pierced. It frightened the shit out of me. I mean, seeing a huge needle taking off a piece of flesh from me, it was like the last thing. I wanted to do. And I got pierced before getting tattooed. It was a stupid bet. I was friend with that girl on my second year of university. We were talking one night at a bar, and the conversation ended up on "if you ever get pierced, where it would be?" It was in 2001, she wanted it on the ... read more

I just got pierced and screwed... on my face

For months I've been infatuated with the Monroe piercing. I think it's beautiful on women and felt that it would look even better on myself. I have always loved how beautiful tattoos and piercings can make people. The only issue holding me back was whether I wanted to do it alone or not. I'm not a stranger to these things at all, but I still don't like to have something done alone. I had looked at numerous pictures and read stories about the procedure, many of those from BMEZINE, and ultimately decided to have it done. I got my new ... read more

Piercing my own lip.

I've seen lip piercings before and I decided that I wanted one. I would never pierce my nose, tongue, or eyebrow but there was something about a lip piercing that I liked. It must of have been the fact that allot of my favorite musicians in bands had their lips pierced and so did some people I knew and I thought it looked awesome. I decided to ask my mom if I could get it pierced. I already knew her answer but I decided to ask anyways. So I did and she answered "No! I think it looks tacky". This ... read more

give me your hand!!!

I was walking around my senior high school recently and a boy came to me, for the safety of bystanders, we'll call him john. So john comes over to me and says that he has a request. I was skeptical because I usually just go unnoticed by near everybody in the entire school so that nobody wants anything from me. Not that I'm lazy, I just like low expectations from me. He approaches in a sulky type of walk and asks if I could do him a favor. I saw pen markings on his lower lip so I saw where ... read more

Out of Instinct

One day at school I decided I wanted a new piercing. I already had my navel, and three in each ear, but as most people who have been pierced know, you always crave more. I came to the conclusion that i would really enjoy a lip ring, something to play with, something noticeable. I asked people if should get my labret pierced, or my madonna (monroe). I had most of my friends say that I would look great with a madonna, that I could really pull it off unlike some other some people. But there are always those few people ... read more

Getting my 'smiley' pierced

So, I'm currently going through a heart breaking divorce. The whole thing has been really hard on me, and for some reason, when things just aren't going the way they should be and I am really depressed, I tend to do random, painful things to myself. A random piercing prevails over a random tattoo, being that I've never gotten a 'random' tattoo, and getting pierced is more in budget. It was the day after my soon to be ex husband and I talked about getting divorced. I was totally crushed and was picking up new plugs from Matt Dapkuinas at ... read more

My Smilie piercing!

My Smilie :) I got this piercing when I went into my second year at Uni. I'd waited during my first year and didn't rush into any piercings or mod's mainly because I wasn't sure what I wanted, but also because I didn't want my parents to think because I'd left home I'd go off the rails. Other than my ears (8 piercings in each) the only other piercing I'd got was my nostril, as a present to myself for my birthday. I'd always wanted something a bit quirky and different, but I wanted something I could hide as well. ... read more

First Facial Piercing.... But Not The Last!!

So, I will admit I'm somewhat of a pussy at the best of times, even though I have quite a high pain threshold, I get very nervous when around needles. Anyway, last tuesday, I had decided that I wanted another piercing, I currently have my left ear stretched to 3mm, and my left nipple with a horizontal bar, 14g. I knew I wanted another piercing, but I just couldn't decide which... Do I get my tongue done? Snakebites? Industrial? Shit I just can't decide. Anyways, after much deliberation, I decided that I wanted my Labret done, and after speaking to ... read more

My Monroe and first professional piercing

My first professional body piercing was done by Anna at Body Piercing by Holly in Summerville, SC. Back in the day, the shop was run by just Holly and was called Hollys House of Pain. Now with multiple tattoo shops (www.hollysbodycanvas.com) Holly lets a couple of girls named Anna and Katie run the shop. In my spare time, I used to hang out up at the shop and talk with the girls and watch them pierce people. Both of them are extremely experienced at all piercings and watching them truly is a treat. I had a labret piercing that I ... read more

'Does it look good?'

At the age of 11 my outlook on music changed totally, and with some of the bands I'd started listening to, I became a lot more aware of piercings and body modification in general. Almost instantly, I took a liking to lip piercings in particular. With my Mam not being very keen on me 'messing' my body up in this way, I realized I'd have to wait it out, until I became 16. During this time I became a lot more interested in ideas, often finding out new things everyday. I was totally in love with the thought of being ... read more
