I was a dermal anchor guinea pig

Every time I step into Venus Modern Body Arts, it's a dubious mission. More often than not, even if I'm just visiting Marilyn, I walk out with a new hole somewhere on my person or, at the very least, new jewelry. This time (which was just last night), I'd been having one of those days. You know the type. Aggravating...frustrating...the kind where a little steam desperately needs to be let out. Just the right time for a new piercing. I had, however, no idea of what I wanted or even THAT I wanted anything. I was poking around with the ... read more

Vertical Sternum/Cleavage Piercing

It started with just calling my best friend up. I told her I wanted to get something pierced. So while we were on our way to Shiva's I decided I wanted to pierce my Sternum. The area in between my boobs. So we showed up and I told the peircer what I wanted, he pulled out a barbell measured my chest and bent the bar. He charged me 70 bucks. I went into the room and took off my shirt. I lied on my back and he marked me where he would punch the holes in. Carrie my best friend ... read more

Failed D.I.Y hand-web

Ok, basically I'm a 14 year old piercing addict. I have 5 lobes, 1 stretched to 10mm (and getting bigger) and 1 cartilage. All but 2 were done behind my parent's backs because they are totally against piercings ( yay...=[ ). I want ALOT more, but I have to live with just 6 until I'm 16. Last week, due to complete and utter boredness, I shoved some giant safety pins through my arm. I had some fun twisting them about and putting earrings in the holes. When I showed my best mate the scars the next day, she said why ... read more

Surface Clavicles

Surface Clavicles For the last few months I have had the craving for a new mod. I had originally been thinking about getting my sternum pierced, so started looking around BME to try and get some information. That's when I saw a picture of some matching surface clavicles. Right from the start I thought these were one of the more interesting piercings I had ever seen and it was just what I wanted. After two weeks of searching / agonising over the pain, I finally worked up the nerve to get it done. Over the past year I have had ... read more

Eerste piercing

Als je geïnteresseerd bent in tattoos, dan is het onvermijdelijk dat je ook piercings te zien krijgt. Ik vond ze soms wel redelijk staan, maar er zelf ééntje nemen, nou nee, daar vond ik ze niet mooi genoeg voor. Dat veranderde toen ik in een tijdschrift een foto zag van een rug vol met surface piercings. Was dat mogelijk??? Blijkbaar. Vanaf dat moment bleef de gedachte zelf ook ooit zoiets te laten doen me door het hoofd spelen. Ik ging informatie zoeken over dit type piercings. Wat telkens terugkwam in die informatie was het risico op afstoten van de piercing. ... read more

Nape Piercing - A Year On

I got my first piercing by a woman with cigarette-stained hands when I was thirteen. She took a blunt pierce of metal and shoved it through my ear using a piercing gun. I was, at that stage, too young to be pierced in a professional studio, so I kept getting pierced that way for a few years after that. I was, however, a pretty active member of three outdoor adventure clubs and so I was regularly sailing, canoeing and rock climbing. Because of this, my choice of modifications was limited to what I could heal while wearing a helmet several ... read more

Goodbye nape piercing....

Well, I'd been craving a new piercing for quite some time when I finally came across something original and unique. A nape piercing. It really appealed to me, and was something no one else I knew had. I decided to go ahead and make a booking at a local piercer as soon as possible. After the week had passed, I turned up to the studio and prepared myself for the worst. I had no idea what type of pain to expect because I'd heard a lot of mixed reviews. After waiting for a little while, I got called into the ... read more

Wrist Surface Anchor

Before reading this, you might like to check out the BME article on surface anchors here: http://www.bmezine.com/news/pubring/20061106.html At the least look at the picture of the shape of the jewelry and my description of the insertion will make much more sense. The Long Wait I have toyed with the idea of surface anchors (though I initially had no term for it) long before I had ever heard of anyone actually trying it. The possibility entered my mind while working on a Habitat for Humanity house. I was holding a nail gun and thinking that should an accident occur resulting in ... read more

Nape Piercing – Delving Deeper into Modification

I don't know about you, but for myself I find it exceedingly more helpful to read submissions that have been written a semi-long period of time after the actual procedure had taken place. In this way, I am sometimes confronted with such phenomena as healing problems, revelations, tips or tricks etc. As much as I prefer reading experiences that are NOT written a few days after the fact, I feel it is important for me to write this now, while the memory is still fresh. I promise to update in a year or so when I can reflect intelligently upon ... read more

Nape

First off, let me say that I am no stranger to piercings. Aside from my ears, I have had four sternum piercings, a nose ring, tongue ring, one madison, four navel rings, two hip piercings, and now my nape. I currently only have 11 still in. Hot Rod Body Piercing has pierced about 10 of them. They are the only place I'll go to now. Having recently had my hips pierced (with tygon - highly recommend it!), I thought I'd pretty much exhausted all piercable options that would allow me to still get a job after looming graduation. I don't ... read more
