My Slick Six

Well, I kind of have a fixation for piercings, and I have so many, but I never wanted them all over my face. I started with my collarbones back a while ago, and they hurt, but I wanted something new, something not everyone had, and I wanted surface. The things hurt quite a bit, but the adrenaline and the way they are after that are way worth it. My friend Brennan suggested that I get a whole project done, and after researching the parts of the body that can be pierced and how they look and stuff like that right ... read more

My new but scary nape piercing

I had been talking about getting a nape piercing. I wanted to get it done because it's rare for an African American female to have this done. Especially in Kansas City. The plan was to get the piercing, and then get a glow in the dark tattoo of my son's eyes over it. Once the piercing was done healing I was going to get a glow in the dark ring for the piercing. Well after months and months of talking about getting it done I finally went to do it. On March 24th my cousin and I went to Freaks ... read more

"Is that a bar in your arm?"

Like just about all of my other piercings, I'd been interested in surface piercings, especially wrist/forearm piercing for months and both the aesthetics and probably the "rarity" [well, at least the rarity of properly done surface piercings] appealed to me the most. I think part of wanting to get the piercing done also was to have a bit more control of myself because I knew I'd have something to keep my mind occupied for the next 3 months with cleaning and looking after the thing. I'll say this now that I don't get pierced just to take my mind off ... read more

Does my bum look big in this?

Last night I was restless. I had strange dreams, some disturbing and some swirly and beautiful. But one dream I had stayed in my mind and was the first thing I remembered when I awoke. It always bothers me when that happens. It's like I have had an idea in my sleep and I wake up feeling like I have to somehow re-enact the dream, to make it real. I can't really explain it, maybe I am just strange, who knows? The dream that I couldn't get out of my head as clambered out of bed was a dream in ... read more

close to my heart

Every time I contemplate getting a new piercing or tattoo, I always compulsively give blood. The waiting time between new additions and being eligible to give again always seems so long and giving blood is very important to me. Until the regulations are changed and it is no longer a year's wait, I literally have to plan to give blood a few days before I go in for a new mod. This time was no different. I just turned 18 and had a major desire to get pierced. Something about being able to sign for myself and choose what I ... read more

A New Found Addiction

The first time that I had ever gotten a piercing was when I was five years old, then I went on a piercing hiatus for about 13 years. When I was going through my angst ridden teenage years I always complained to my mom about getting a lip piercing, and now that I look back on it I am quite happy that she always said no. I have always liked my clavicles for some weird reason, but I never knew that you could get them pierced until recently. One day a few months back a friend of mine told me ... read more

Alternative to sub-clavicle

It all started when I saw Jordan Article about Sub Clavicle piercing. I knew on a side that there was no way I'd dare to heal such a piercing since some people had them for 2 years, and it was still not healed... and I don't have the patience, nor the determination to withstand such extended period of time! But on the other hand, it was looking so awesome, so strange... so appealing! I had the opportunity to speak about it with Efix, and it was obvious off the bat that he wouldn't do such piercing. Because of the problems ... read more

Vertical madison (surface bar)

It was a morning like a lot of others. I was preparing for my first college of the year that was due the next week, and my mind wandered. I'd been thinking about a madison piercing for a while already. Since I did not want to spend the entire day musing over the social aspects of medieval plays, I rang 'my' piercing shop to see if there would be someone available that afternoon. Affirmative! I took the next train to Amsterdam, and from there to Alkmaar. When I got off the train I got nervous. Very nervous. I even considered ... read more

Sternum Piercing

I decided to get a surface piercing as a treat to myself, after getting some good exam results back in April. Although I wasn't quite sure what I wanted, I was considering getting "vampire bite" style bars through the top of one of my breasts but was aware that as with many surface piercings, what you can actually get done safely does vary person to person. I had had great success with a nape piercing that is a metal bar, as opposed to PFTE, and at the time was almost a year old (still going strong now!) I didn't want ... read more

My shiny new STERNUM piercing!

I've had a want to get my sternum pierced for quite some time now. It started out when I saw a girl at Six Flags Magic Mountain with one, and it was pretty much an instant attraction. Not that my boobs don't get enough attention or anything, but I thought it would definitely be a cute addition to that area of my body. Which is usually how I feel about most piercings. That they make me feel pretty. But yeah, that's how my interest in sternum piercings began. So now it's about a year-and-a-half after my initial discovery, and I'm ... read more
