On the Surface - My Experience with Microdermals.

After learning about Microdermals and seeing a few examples in my Piercer's portfolio I decided I would like some. The only issue was the location, I work in a kitchen so hands and arms were out of the question and I paddle a Kayak so legs were out too. I thought about the Nape but I need to mostly sleep on my back because my ears are still toughening up from having dermal punches to the Outer Conches. After discussions with my Piercer and a bit of thinking I decided I'd like two on each side of my face, next ... read more

Nape piercing - to remember a friend

I think for my story, a little background information is needed, so I will try to explain, without dragging on for too long. My love of nape piercings, I think began the first time I saw one in front of my own two eyes, but id never actually touched the back of my neck and thought ' I'll do it', until I lose a dear friend of mine to a tragic accident. I'll go in to a little detail, and i'll try not to upset myself or any readers I am young, too young to know the world very well, ... read more

My First Microdermal

I am a bit of a piercing nut, though in the conventional sense. I have numerous piercing in my ears, and (have now retired) a couple in my lip. A total of 12 at the time. A couple of months after I had my second lip ring done, I was looking around BME for some new ideas, and the word microdermal kept coming up. I researched it on the Wiki encyclopaedia and they seemed just the sort of thing I wanted, not to invasive or extreme, yet unknown from where i'm from. Now I had my heart set on this, ... read more

I chose the piercing before the dress.

Ever since grade nine, I dreamt about graduating from my 'hell-hole of a school'. Currently (well, until the 29th of this month aka June), I attend a boarding school in British Columbia, Canada. It is a fairly well-known school, strict, conservative (especially against body modification, I need to hide all of my piercings at school or else they'll tell me to take them out), but still a very good school (classes wise). Well, this year is my final, grade 12 year, I'm finally leaving. On May 19th was my Graduation Dinner and Dance (Prom or whatever other people call it), ... read more

Hand Webbing Piercing Experience- Repiercing on Scar Tissue

I've been in love with piercings as long as I can remember- to me, they are hypnotic. I forget when I realized how beautiful a hand web piercing could be, or why- but I've basically been planning to get one since I was about 15. Well, because I am impatient and inexperienced (although I have previously pierced my own ears including cartilage successfully) I ended up piercing it myself. Things certainly weren't sterile and it began to reject after about 2 weeks. I also happened to go to Warped Tour about the same time. The open ring got hooked on ... read more

Third time's the charm

I hereby declare myself to be hard core. Or at least drunk-core. Let me say now, very clearly, THIS IS NOT A GOOD IDEA! I've always had a fascination with hand piercings. My first piercing ever, the thing that got me into bod mod at all, was a handweb piercing when I was 16. Needless to say, it didn't last very long. Since then, knuckle piercings have looked very attractive to me. Every time I came across one on BME, I saved the picture. A few months ago, I was at my piercer, getting my tongue repierced, and I asked ... read more

First Surface Piercing

For a few years I have wanted to get my nostril pierced. Right before I turned 18 I told my mother (who works at the local health department) that I wanted to get it, and asked her which shop in our area is the cleanest and safest. Well, contrary to what I had expected, she freaked out on me and told me that if I got any facial piercing or visible tattoo I would be on my own—no health insurance, no real job, and no way to pay for college. I was crushed. It wasn't like I wanted five holes ... read more

The Nape piercing I always wanted!

My love of piercings goes way back to when I was 16 which was 10 years ago. Unfortunately for me my parents weren't cool enough to actually sign for me to get anything but my ears pierced so I had to wait until I was old enough to get them myself. When I was 21 I decided that it was time that I indulge in my true love - piercings. So I took up a job at a tattoo shop performing body piercings, I wanted to know as much as I could about piercings and everything that went with it. ... read more

Easiest Piercing Ever! My Vertical Surface Tragus!

So, about six months ago I had this AMAZING idea that I could get a surface bar and wear it in my helix instead of keeping a ring in place for my orbital. That way it would still be cool instead of having two separate pieces of jewelry.... For some reason, I hopped onto my favorite online jewelry site, bodyartforms.com, and bought a 5/16" surface bar. Genius idea. I got the bar, and kept messing with my ear and tried to get it in before realizing that my upper ear cartilage is about a 1/4" thick and the rise on ... read more

The End of a Surface Project

Just over a year and a half ago I got two surface piercings; bars on both my upper arms, just below my runic text tattoos. These were intended to be the start of a larger surface project which extended above and below the tattoos by a good few inches. The plan was to have a horizontal staple with two balls (transdermal implants) at the very bottom of the project, with a vertical surface piercing above that, the balls of which were to be interspersed with a horizontal staple. The tattoo would sit just above the top ball of the surface ... read more
