My new piece of metal

I have a number of piercings, mostly in my right ear (I seemed to get stuck on that ear a few years back and next thing I knew it was peppered with various bits of metal).The number I have is 13, incidentally, I had to quickly count them just now. I have been looking for a new piercing for ages, and as I am fairly picky I took my time deciding. I wanted something that would not be too scary (because despite all the other piercings I have, I am still a wimp deep down), and also would not be ... read more

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

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

A bitter-sweet story

For a while I've had a thing for unusual piercings; at the moment my more unusual ones are just my vertical industrial, my vertical bridge and my mandible microdermal. Anyway, this is the story of my vertical bridge :-) You could say it's a bitter-sweet story really; my vertical bridge was the result of a retired lowbret and an unreliable father. Anyway, I spent 8 years not having contact with my father; we used to spend time together when I was younger, but when I was about 8 he just disappeared out of my life. He went on holiday and ... read more

"Uhh...can I go to the bathroom?

So, there I was bored out of my wits because my geometry teacher could put even the hyper est of people to sleep in a heartbeat ... But First I would like to clue you all in on my situation. ONE: My (really really tattooed) parents do not believe in putting holes in ones body, so I had to get it somewhere unnoticeable. TWO: Would never, I mean NEVER, allow me to get a piercing if they have to sign for it. and THREE: My school is the best place to do it at (it is where I have the ... read more
