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

My Wrist-Piercing Experience

I've never been a fan of surface piercings. While as a kid I loved the idea of having multiple piercings, my mum hated facial piercings and I don't hate my mum at all, so I kept away and focussed on my ears and the less visible ones. Surface piercings never hugely appealed though, and indeed I found them pretty pointless and ugly. All that changed seven weeks ago when I found myself pondering what had happened to my childhood love of piercings – I used to get new ear piercings nearly every month, though neglect meant I removed a great ... read more

My Nape

I have always loved piercings but when I came to university I was opened up to a whole new world! The one which I am most proud of being my nape. I have read many useful and interesting stories about other peoples' experiences, some of which I agree with, some I disagree with, but then, everyone's' experiences are different! The first surface piercing I was exposed to was a nape and it was love at first sight. I spent a couple of days wondering if I should go through with it and in the end decided I should, after all, ... read more

My nape vs my Nerves

Well, Week 5 of my nape being rather happy with me is almost up! I decided about 5 weeks ago to get my first surface piercing, and after much research, and several phone calls to my piercer, I took the plunge and had him poke a hole in the back of my neck. It wasn't quite what I had expected, and not nearly as bad as I thought it would be. I have 10 other piercings, and I've enjoyed every single one, so I figured getting my nape done was something that would be even more interesting than the rest. ... read more

My anchor/microdermal navel piercing.

Since the first time I saw someone with their lower navel pierced, I knew I had to get one. I had my navel pierced February 2006, and have been waiting for a time to finally get the lower part pierced. I researched on BME for quite some time, learning about what methods and jewelry should be used in such an area, reading people's stories, and looking at pictures. I had it figured out from all my research what I was going to get done. I wanted a surface piercing, with a surface bar, and done with the punch and taper ... read more

Me and My Corset!

Tomorrow, I will have had my corset piercing for exactly one week! This has been a piercing in the planning for months, it started with a picture I saw on the Internet, I then mentioned it to Scott whilst I was getting my vertical sternum pierced. He said how he had also wanted to do a corset piercing but never had, this of course made me determine to get one. I did loads of research on the Internet first, looking for pictures but couldn't find that many, I probably found about a dozen or so. I found lots of horror ... read more

Adventures of a Nape Piercing

When I first considered a nape piercing, one of my friends (now a piercer's apprentice) had the guts to actually go out and get it done. It looked fantastic and I knew that I had to have it. The only thing stopping me was a slightly scarring nipple-piercing experience. The pain of that had made me a little needle shy. I even talked to my piercer repeatedly about the type of pain I was in for with the nape piercing and what kind of a pain scale we were talking about. Never even having considered pain as a factor for ... read more

The beautiful bar in my chest that was not meant to be.

I am sure there comes a point in the modded person's life where they start to look at the more unusual piercings and even start to look at piercings which may not 'live forever' but will look amazingly beautiful for a short while and decide to opt for those too. In my life with modifications I decided I too would look into these types of piercing and perhaps get one myself. I looked through the array of surface piercing pictures on BMEZINE and having seen sternum piercing in my friends too I set my heart on this. I got in ... read more

Personal Right of Passage- Nape Piercing

The summer in between high school and college was a very eventful time of my life. I decided to move out of the house and for the first time in my life I supported myself on my own. The feeling was very liberating and I gained a lot of trust in myself and found strength that I didn't know I had. So when the summer came winding down I wanted something to remember it by. Up until my nape, piercings have been kept to my ear with both lobes double pierced and a small rook on my right ear that ... read more
