Surface piercings make me happy

Since coming back to iam and looking around at people's pages I decided that I needed to get something new. I had settled on a tongue web, but working in a call centre I figured that spending hours and hours talking with a fresh piercing probably wasn't the best idea. I'd had a surface piercing over my sternum a while ago which I didn't have the best experience with. It was pierced with Teflon, off-centre and ended up with keloids and the beginnings of rejection just before I gave up and took it out. This was probably as much my ... read more

Hey, I have balls! (In my neck)

In early 2006 I got a job at a popular retail chain, who has a strict tattoo and piercing policy. Essentially, it's NO. However, I only had three in each ear, all lower ear. Simple wal-mart brand home gun process on three, sewing needle, regular earrings, and lots of rubbing alcohol on the other three. Yes, I know that these were all bad ideas, but fortunately I've never had a problem with any of them. Luck is on my side. I've wandered a bit, my apologies. I was not happy with the idea of stopping at my ears, so I ... read more

Strikjes! Of

Wat vooraf ging: Ongeveer een week nadat ik m'n madison had gehaald, zat ik bij en met een vriendin te kletsen. Ons gespreksonderwerp laat zich raden: piercings. De vriendin vroeg wat ik verder nog ging laten doen. Ik had er nog niet echt over nagedacht, maar had ideeën te over. Surfaces langs m'n sleutelbeenderen leken me op dat moment de volgende stap. Of een industrial, ook leuk. Of een microdermal in m'n duim. Of...nou ja, surfaces hiero. En met 'hiero' klopte ik op m'n kuiten. Vriendin lachen. Ze heeft al veel plannetjes van mij moeten aanhoren, haha. Maar goed, daarna ... read more

Has your necklace broken?

I suppose this piercing was a spur of the moment thing, I had looked at pictures of this piercing before and thought "wow that's pretty" but nothing serious. Last night I got that itch, the one of wanting something more, I had been debating whether to get my ears pierced again on Friday but my heart wasn't totally into it. I scanned BME pictures like a deranged woman, on the search of something I did not know, but it had to be unique. After my corset I couldn't go back to a normal piercing. So I turned up on Friday ... read more

Sternum Experience, from one military brat to another

My parents always try to figure out who was "responsible" for my piercing obsession. My father blames my mom for getting my ears pierced when I was three years old, and for getting my nostril when I was sixteen. My mom blames my dad for piercing my helix (at home) when I was 14. It's a never-ending battle, really. But with my sternum, there was nobody to blame but myself. I'd wanted one ever since I saw a picture on BMEZINE.com back in February 2006. I thought they were so beautiful, but I knew my parents would never agree to ... read more

Bye bye cleavage piercing-and a warning against them

So my favourite piercing is now gone,and while I am sad I am SO RELIEVED to have that horrible thing out of me! It all started last December, when I wanted to get my first surface piercing. I already have several facial piercings and my nipples,so wasn't worried about the pain or anything. After seeing a cleavage piercing on BME,I decided that was what I wanted as my favourite body part is my boobs-anything that draws more attention there can't be bad!! The mistake I made was getting a fairly new surface piercer to do them-he was had done corsetry,wrist,finger ... read more

Sternum piercing

I had my mind set on getting my sternum pierced for quite a while now. Originally, it started out as a nose piercing, but my work does not allow any visible piercings. Not a big loss I thought. I continued my search for that perfect something. I went through hips, nape, collarbones, corsets you name it, until I finally saw something that struck me: Sternum, I thought to myself. I mean it's unique cute and looks safe. Anyway, I have contacted my friend who is experienced in the area and she is well acquainted with numerous tattoo artists and piercers ... read more

Best birthday present

Right, it all started a few months ago. It was nearly my birthday and it's a tradition for me to treat myself to a new piercing on this day every year. Granted I get a few throughout the year, but I like to get one especially on my birthday. So I started deciding what I wanted to get done. I already had a few piercings, ten at this point I think. But it's hard for me to get new ones because my parents are totally against the idea of modifications. In their words they're a stupid idea and I'll regret ... read more

Nape Piercing

I got my nape pierced a little less than a year ago, in January 2006. It was the second semester of my study abroad in Florence, Italy. Nape piercings intrigued me. It is fairly uncommon and stays hidden if you have long hair. This element of surprise has always drawn me to certain piercings (I like body art, but I definitely do not look like the type). I also remember my first encounter with the nape piercing. At the time I lived in Tokyo, Japan and every summer there are festivals to which many people wear yukata (it is like ... read more

An awesome nape piercing

I had been craving a new piercing and I really wanted a surface, so after some thought I chose for my second piecing to do my nape (the back of my neck). I had my tongue done already and my tattoos were still in the drawling phase by my tattoo artist. So I decided it was time for my first surface! I knew my piercing artist is very good and he had done several and actually has his done too. I talked to him about it before and he knew I was interested so he was pretty excited when I ... read more
