A Surface Bar Corset, nearly a year old.

I thought that now would perhaps be a good time to do a mini-update on my corset piercing, and so there is the back story, the link for the '2 months on' experience is: A Surface Bar Corset - 2 Months On So, at the end of that experience it was early August 2006. Now it is May 2007 and the piercings will be a year old in almost exactly a month. August last year I was trying to work out how best to clean 4 surface piercings that were still healing at a festival. Rather than using boiled water ... read more

Surface Wrist/Arm Piercing

After a long decision process, I decided to go along with getting a surface arm piercing, as I'd always wanted one. Although the rejection rate is extremely high, I thought I'd still risk it. Theres no harm in trying. I went into Cosmetics Plus, one of the cleanest studio's in the city. I had a great piercer, Michael, who made me feel completely relaxed and in safe hands. So I wasn't nervous at all, if anything I was excited. The studio only allows the piercer & the client in the room at any time. All the benches are clean & ... read more

My webbing

This took place about 9 years ago when I was 17. My best friend at the time had a small piercing in the webbing between her pinky and ring finger. I was fascinated by this and thought it was by far the coolest thing I had ever seen. She told be about how her cousin did it for her with an ear piercing gun more than 5 years prior and it just never healed up, so every once in a while she will put a hoop in it. I really wanted to get the same piercing because it looked so ... read more

Madison Piercing, The Good The Bad And The Scar

I have been a big fan of piercings ever since I was a little kid. I used to always wear clip-on nose and earrings because my mum was dead-set against me getting any piercings. But for my 13th birthday she finally gave in and let me get my nose pierced. It was one of the happiest days of my life and mum didn't mind the piercing at all and for my next birthday she let me get my eyebrow done. I loved piercings so much that in the next few years I got my ears pierced all the way up, ... read more

Triple nape piercing

My first piercings started with, of course, my ears. One set on the lobes, then a second, then after two attempts of a third set professionally(both times they got infected) I eventually did them myself after getting an eyebrow piercing when I was thirteen, a lip ring the next year, and my tragus the next. I thought this would be the end of my piercings, as my mother wouldn't allow the uvula and after a while I lost interest, but then I found another desire: the nape. I've used bme as a reference ever since I looked into getting my ... read more

My First Surface Piercing - Short and Sweet....

I had got my rook pierced two days ago, on a whim on my lunch hour. So today when I decided to go shopping (I wanted yet another pair of shoes!) I was not expecting to come home with my first surface piercing.... Let me explain a little. I am not new to piercings. I have an 8mm stretch, scaffolding, six studs running up my left ear and my lip. And of course the new rook. I had met my friend Chris in town to do dome some shopping and the first thing he said was that he needed to ... read more

My anti experience

So I've wanted to get my anti-eyebrow done for about three years. I had even planned to get it done with a surface bar when I was about 16, but when I went in to get sized for it, the piercer told me that I had to be 18 for a surface piercing. He told me to keep informed on the latest types of piercings and procedures on the BME site, and also told me about the micro-dermal implant procedure. The way that he explained it, it didn't sound like it had been around for too long, and it didn't ... read more

My 1st Surface Piercing [Nape]

My decision to have my nape pierced was relatively sudden compared to many on BME. I honestly can't remember how I found the BME site, but it has helped me so much in making an informed decision. Initially I was looking for an ear piercing that was a little out of the ordinary. After hours and hours of browsing I narrowed my decision down to either an Industrial or Vertical Tragus. Sure, it's *only* an ear piercing, but anything to do with cartilage scares the shit out of me! To be 100% honest, anything in the ear apart from a ... read more

The birth and death of my surface piercing.

About a year ago I came across the surface piercing section under BME piercing and I took a gander. I was just looking around on random sections because I was bored; I wasn't even planning on getting a new modification. When I came across a picture of a girl with a barbell right under her collarbone I fell in love. Before that time I had never even considered a surface piercing. I had always thought that surface piercings were too extreme for me. I loved the idea because it was really pretty but edgy at the same time. Also the ... read more

Surface wrist - What to expect

My experience begins immediately after a previous experience – my beautiful nape piercing. Whilst being essentially conventional in appearance (ok so my peers may not agree... but I'm close enough..) I do hide the odd secret, my nape being one of them. After visiting Holier Than Thou previously on the advise of a good friend I really got the piercing "bug" most of you will already be victims of, and having seen my nape turn out so well I was certain surface piercings were the ones for me. Two short months later, once the nape was fully healed and the ... read more
