My Corset Piercing Experience

I figured I would write about this experience while it is still fresh in my mind. I've had my full back corset piercing for two days now and it has been quite the new experience for me. First of all, I had no intention of getting something like this done because I know that it is not a permanent piercing but, the shop my piercer happens to work at was having a $120 all you can get pierced sale (which I don't really support but I'll talk about that some other time). Anyways, so I figured why not go all ... read more

Sternum piercing

After moving to a new city, with my new boyfriend, to start a new job I had absolutely no experience in, I was feeling very much alone. Not knowing anyone here, I spent quite a few of my free hours browsing the internet or playing ps3 or 360 games.It was on one of my days off when I was looking at a section called unusual piercings on a random website that I saw the sternum piercing. I fell in love: it was so beautiful, so sexy, and compliments a woman's frame perfectly! I researched on bme and other sites, to ... read more

Nape piercing part 2

Ever since I starting visiting my local shop and browsing through the artist's portfolios, I've been in love the look of surface piercings on the nape of the neck. So after considering this modification for awhile, I pulled the trigger while visiting home in 2006. I remember being really nervous during all of my piercer's prep-work, and it being my most painfull piercings ever. But it healed so perfectly and it was so perfectly centered that it was for sure my favorite modification. I never had a problem with my jobs having problems since I was able to hide it ... read more

Loving my nape!

I remember when I first saw a nape piercing when I was 18 in college. It initially turned me off and I was grossed out, but I was only interested in more ear piercings and maybe a nose at the time, so that figured. After I got some facial ones a couple of years later, I was more into uncommon piercings, so I became interested at that point. I looked at galleries online, looking carefully at the pictures and reading up on all of the stories, and I had to decide if this was something I really wanted. I did ... read more

Clavicle Surface Piercings

I've been itching for another piercing since my last in December. I knew exactly what I wanted done- surface piercings below my collarbones. The problem was getting the timing just right. Having had surface piercings before, I know they don't last long. I knew I had to wait until Summer so that I could actually show them off, and minimise the need for clothing that would rub against them. Looking through my old diaries (they're very embarassing!) I found out that my first "real" piercing was 15th July 2005. What better way to celebrate my five year anniversary than getting ... read more

Mission Uvula

So I have been interested in piercings for several years and the unique ones always caught my eye. I fell in love with the uvula piercing the first time I saw it. I started calling around the local shops and not only will no one do the piercing for me, they all highly recommend against it. Typically I would say to listen to your piercer. However, no one I talked to had ever done it or knew anyone who had. They sighted the obvious complications as reason enough not to proceed. I put mission uvula on the back burner for ... read more

My first surface piercing! x3!

When I fancy a particular piercing, it will take me a few weeks to a few months to feel comfortable enough with the idea of actually getting it. I research placements, correct jewelry, personal stories, potential problems and facts about the piercing itself. I like to know what I'm getting into and what sort of things I may expect. When I first saw a dermal anchor piercing a few years ago, I was very curious. I knew of surface bar piercings, but these new fangled piercings allowed for a single gem or disc to just "float" somewhere. It was too ... read more

Nape: bane of my existance, love of my life.

After seeing my dear friend walk around the halls of high school with light bouncing off the back of her neck, I knew then I had to get my nape pierced. Piercings and tattoos had always rolled around in the back of my mind, for I've always seen them as an extension of physical beauty and art, but growing up with a slightly neurotic mother had always inhibited these thoughts from becoming a reality. That was until I discovered the nape piercing and a lovely cheque for $100 under my bed. One sunny Sunday afternoon, I dragged my friend down ... read more

Nape piercing

Despite always being interested in piercings, apart from my lobes (which I rarely utilise) and a lip piercing which I took out after a week, the only 'real' piercing I had was a tiny gem in my nostril. I wanted something more but I couldn't find anything I liked. After scouring BME I discovered surface piercings. I was instantly intrigued and spent a long time reading experiences, looking at pictures and researching all the potential implications. Eventually, I decided on an anti-brow and even booked an appointment before chickening out. I realised that if the piercing rejected, which was highly ... read more

Regret

I'm usually really thoughtful about all my body mods, in fact it took me years of thought to decided on whether I was sure about getting my first tattoo, and a tonne of research on which artist was best suited to do it. So now that I'm sitting here with a gauze compress taped to my chest, I'm wondering what the hell I was thinking, or if I was even thinking at all. I was shopping with my mother and sister about three or four months back, I was nearly broke and hadn't even brought anything yet, but we had ... read more
