Beautiful nape (

I have always had a fascination with body piercings and got my first one done, my tongue, when I was fourteen years old. I had thought about getting a surface piercing first of all when I turned seventeen, but had heard stories of rejection and didn't want to be left with a big scar to show for it, so I decided against it. But a few months ago I saw a guy in the street with a nape piercing which I had never seen before, I thought it looked amazing so I decided to find out more about it. I ... read more

Napes don't hurt

About 2 weeks ago I came to the conclusion I wanted my nape pierced, just as the same way I wanted my nipples done. It's a piercing that isn't commonly sported everyday like a nose stud or even an eyebrow ring. I tried getting it done 2 weekends ago but I was $5 short and my piercer Branden Freshour( also a very close friend) couldn't sneak me in with his manager there. So I waited till last weekend to go in and get it done, I went on a Friday right after work with the intent on only getting my ... read more

My sternum piercing (What an eye catcher!)

I'm pretty new to body modifications. Since I turned 18, I had my ears gauged to 6's, my eyebrow pierced for a little over a year, and my bellybutton going on 2 years. I've never had a terrible experience with any of my piercings, and found all of them quite enjoyable. Recently, I decided to add something new to my body. The idea was very spare of the moment (which may not have been the best idea) and I was very unprepared for what I was about to go through. My friend Melissa, who is heavily into piercings, decided that ... read more

Microdermals, the love of my life

Originally I wanted surface bars down my chest and belly. I kept thinking about them and knew they would reject. I attempted to do one myself, and it rejected right away. It seemed like I wouldn't be able to have my buttons. Last spring I found out about microdermals, and, though they're still "experimental," I decided that was the way to go. I attempted to find a place that would do them in Spokane, WA. No one would do it because it was "too risky." I tried to convince some people to test it on me, but no one would. ... read more

First dermal anchor.

So my friend and I had decided that we were going to get pierced but we had to figure out what we wanted pierced first. I decided to get underneath my navel pierced as a surface piercing and she decided to get her sternum pierced as a surface piercing. But when we arrived at Wicked Ink in Penrith and met with Joeltron, our piercer, he persuaded us to get dermal anchors instead as there was a better chance of healing as the surface piercings would only have a 20% chance, and also because I loved the look of the star ... read more

Oh My God!

On my 18th birthday my fate was decided, I was going to be a part of the body modification world. I woke up, searched this site with a friend who was buying me a piercing of my choice for my birthday. We spent at least 45 minutes searching the galleries on this site. We were torn between surface piercings or lips piercings. Both of us too afraid of the surface piercing; we decided to put it off until a later date. So off I went to get a vertical labret. Not more than 3 weeks later I felt guilty for ... read more

Nape, nape, napeeeee

After scouring the Internet for absolutely months, I was still unsure on what surface piercing to go for. Eventually, after watching countless amounts of videos on Youtube, I decided to get my Nape (back of neck) pierced. I'd heard a lot about the piercing and how if it goes wrong, you can get 'paralysed' which I later heard from my piercer that this is actually complete bollocks. Seeing, as that's pretty much impossible because the nerves are situated under the spine, on the 1st April 2007 I went to get my piercing done. I was only slightly nervous, but I ... read more

My New Microdermal

This is the story of my experience with getting a microdermal on my cheekbone. My friend Stephanie wanted to go get her tongue pierced and I offered to go with her as I have mine done and thought I could offer her some support. This was perfect timing for me as I had recently gotten "the itch" and knew if I didn't get a new piercing soon I would die of boredom. I quickly searched BME and google to try and find a good studio near Waterloo, where Steph and I both go to university. I found Thrive Studios and ... read more

Dermal Anchor

On saturday the 12th of January 2007, I went to Emily's Dangly Bits in Stourbridge with some mates, wanting a new piercing but REALLY not wanting to spend a lot of money. While we were decided what to have pierced, they mentioned Dermal anchors, and I'd heard about them in Oasis, Birmingham (who, Incidentally are great piercers, and I've loved going there for most of mine :D) the cost at Oasis, I was told, was £50 per anchor, which is REALLY expensive, for someone on a 16 year old's budget. I asked how much they were charging at Emily's & ... read more

Another microdermal story.

Microdermals underneath my collarbones interested me as soon as I saw the article on BME. I'd dismissed the idea of surface piercings there because the inevitable rejection wasn't particularly appealing - and due to how I sleep and how much I'd knock them, I was certain it wouldn't work out for more than a few uncomfortable months. So, microdermals seemed like the perfect solution. I didn't go into this expecting to keep them forever though. I waited for a few months to make sure I really wanted them, during which Holier Than Thou began to offer them to customers and ... read more
