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

My hand webbing

The first time I saw a picture of hand webbing I fell in love with it and really wanted it done. I read up a lot on it... most via BME. I didn't know anyone else who had ever had a hand piercing. After reading up a bit on it I finally decided to go and get it done even though there is a high rejection rate. Because I didn't have a job, it wouldn't really be a huge issue. I use 2 different piercers due to the fact the one I usually go to doesn't do many surface piercings ... read more

Abdominal Surface Art

I had had my tattoo (symbol for infinity) for a few months now, and had always wanted a surface piercing; they look unusual and really sexy. Tuesday 9th Jan. '07 - I visited Tattoo UK to get some tapers to stretch my lobes up a little, and found myself looking at the price list for piercings. I asked whether I could get one done through/under the infinity symbol on my abdomen, and I was told I could! If I was to have it done, the jewellery would be PTFE which pleased me as I tend to be a sensitive soul ... read more

my first microdermal experience

So, a preface to the microdermals. I had gotten my sternum pierced with a surface staple previously by Jamie at Saint Sabrina's. Try as I might, this surface bar began to migrate and was always just a little bit red and pissed off. Near the end of its existence, it started bleeding again. This was the point that I decided that as much as I loved it, it had to go. Now the sad thing about this sort of experience is that I wasn't ready to retire my piercing. It was part of my self image and I was very ... read more
