my gorgeous hip piercings =]

Ever since I got my snakebites (which I did myself), I thought about getting something more. But being only 17, my options were really limited. My Mom wouldn't sign for a tattoo, and anymore facial piercings were out of the question. One day, I was just looking around the internet at pictures of surface piercings, when I saw them. Hip surface piercings. I thought they were the most gorgeous thing that I had ever seen, and at that moment I knew that I needed to have them no matter what. I talked to my biological dad about it (im adopted), ... read more

Les malheurs de mon piercing à la nuque

Fanatique de modifications corporelles depuis le début de mon adolescence, j'ai vite appris que ce qu'on dit est vrai : une fois que l'on a commencé, impossible de s'arrêter. J'ai comme qui dirait eu la piqûre, sans mauvais jeu de mots. J'en ai déjà quelques uns, certains que j'ai dû enlever pour diverses raisons (surface sur la tempe qui ne guérissait pas, arcade parce que c'était pas très esthétique, à mon goût, avec la surface tempe, 1 lobe et 1 hélix percé au pistolet qui, trois ans après le perçage me faisait encore mal..), d'autres qui restent ( strechs de ... read more

Land of the Nape

Approximately three years ago I saw my first memorable nape piercing. In the movie Land of the Dead I saw the main female actress, Asia Argento, sporting the curious adornment. At the time, my knowledge of body modification was far less than what it is now; basically I was intrigued by the two balls on the back of some woman's neck. I was fascinated and the image has yet to leave my mind. Now years later, with far more knowledge of the human anatomy then I ever thought I would want to know and a decent knowledge of body modification, ... read more

My Microdermal

First of all, the microdermal idea was introduced to me by Mike after I had gone in and complained about my surface bar on my sternum that was done at another studio. It was done terribly. I had another piercer take it out as she told me it was already migrating. I had three scars, two from the bar and one from the clamp. I was pretty upset that I no longer had the pretty jewellery where I wanted it. This is where the idea of the microdermal comes in. I had looked on BME at a lot of microdermals ... read more

On the surface

Part 1: Decisions A few years ago, if anyone had asked me if I'd consider getting a surface piercing, my answer would have been something along the lines of, "Probably not. They're too complicated and most of them reject within a few months." This was not just a random opinion either: I'd seen too many pictures of angry, red rejecting piercings with surface bars (or worse, straight barbells!) poking out and had heard too many stories about how finicky these particular piercings could be. My thoughts on surface piercings started to change when I met Patrick – one of the ... read more

Nape Microdermals!

I had just got my nipples pierced a few months ago on a trip back home to California. After my amazing experience with getting my nipples pierced I was ready to get something a little bit different done that people could see... the only problem was I work as a substitute teacher and they don't allow most piercings except 2 on each ear so it had to be something I could hide easily if needed. I was use to having to wear hiders every work day for my 7/16 gauged ears. I wanted something that was unusual so I searched ... read more

God Bless The Ankle!

I always loved the idea of piercing myself.. It gives it a more personal touch and allows you to do it just how you want it.. so long as you do it safely :) And you can also brag to your friends who don't do that stuff (yes I'm still a school kid :P). It's always nice to have a story behind a piercing. Until now I had only pierced my ear lobes myself and I was thinking of other places to pierce. As I wasn't very experienced and don't have any other piercings I didn't want to try piercing ... read more

17th birthday present - my pretty nape

When I was 12, I announced to my mother I wanted to get my ear pierced – a ring at the top of my ear. She talked to the guys at her tattoo/piercing place while getting her second tattoo done, and they told her to wait until I was 13. Mum didn't want me to get it done, so she told me that they had said 14. I decided that would be what I did for my 14th birthday. After getting a second set of holes in my earlobes on my 13th birthday, and plans for another ear piercing the ... read more

Transient beauty

My handweb piercing was my second piercing. I had my eyebrow pierced, and I loved it; I wanted more...but what else to have done? I spent hours looking online at other facial piercings, but none of them appealed; they looked beautiful in the pictures, but I was scared of chipping my teeth with a tongue piercing, too worried about kissing with a lip piercing, and my dislike of my nose kept me from wanting to draw attention to it more with a piercing there. So I turned my attention lower, where else could I get pierced? Too nervous and shy ... read more

Surface to Surface

Early this year, I had two surface to surface (surface bar) piercings on my chest, of which I absolutely loved the look. Up to this point, I had about 15 piercings in my life, and the surface to surface were definitely the most painful. Am I complaining? Not at all. Several months after the first one was done, I snagged it while I was sleeping on the collar of my tank top, which tore part of the tunnel. I tried changing the bar bell and taping it in place but it started migrating because the lower hole had torn. To ... read more
