In Home Health Care

"The Seventh Hole" My story starts with the news that my boyfriend's older sister was flying in from California for a weekend to visit her family. She is as interesting a person as I have ever met in my life, and as pierced and tattooed! What makes this visit even more awesome is that she works in a piercing studio where she lives and is excellent at what she does. The girl split her own tongue and does all her own piercings herself!! That takes some guts! So as soon as I found out she was coming, and so near ... read more

I am a soldier

My name is Jessica Harmony Henline I am twenty-years-old and live presently in Vincennes, Indiana, attending Vincennes University as a Business Administration Major. My roommate and Best friend, Jeremy Allen, is the piercing artist at Evolution Studios. Since I have met Jeremy I have acquired seventeen new piercing. While going through his apprentice I tried to help him the only way I knew how, being his pincushion. Now eleven holes later I didn't think there was too much more the could do with my ears, and I cant have facial piercing because of work, it was hard enough getting away ... read more

From Heaven to Hell in 12 Weeks (Chest Bars)

When it comes to choosing which piercings I want, I'm always somewhat impulsive. My first piercing (a P.A) was the result of me seeing some pictures and thinking “If I still want that in the morning, I'll go and get one” and things have never really changed. However, I've never been quite so enthusiastic about piercings as when it comes to surface work. I've had a few different ones, such as a standard nape, a MadMax nape by Samppa, as well as a vertical shaft surface bar (on the underside, running in the direction of head-balls). The problem is my ... read more

DIY Hand Web. Lasted One Day!

*Back Round Information: I am 14 years old and the only piercings I have are my ear lobe and eyebrow. (See piercing experience: "First, But Not Last Facial Piercing"). They were both pierced professionally. I will also be getting my lower nape pierced in 3 weeks time. One day, while researching piercings on BME I came across surface and unusual. I found this section intriguing. I saw the hand webs and fantasized about having one. At the time all I had was a boring old ear lobe piercing (which I have since stretched to 14g/1.6mm). I had never even considered ... 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

sorry? a sternum?

Beginning my life as a student came as a major shock for me. I originate from London, which many of you will know is a huge city, always busy with a huge mix of cultures and atmospheres. I failed to reach the grades needed to attend the University of my first choice, which was Bournemouth, and ended up at UCLAN or the University of Central Lancashire to those of you that are not quite in the know. The main campus is situated in Preston, quite a small town about an hour away from Manchester and about 20 minutes away from ... read more

Five-pointed surface star--lower back

One of my best experiences was my set of surface piercings. This particular set was not my first, but a great experience all together. Nick is a good friend and he has done all but my navel piercing–including basic body parts, genital, and body play. One afternoon, I was just hanging out with Nick and we decided to try some more surface piercings. We had already done one very low on my stomach and it was looking good in the healing process. So we talked and decided to do a star shape on my lower back. I relaxed while he ... read more

sub-clavicle piercings

So for a couple years now I'd been fascinated with the sub-clavicle piercings. Frequently feeling my collarbones and pinching behind, and all that, increasingly more as time went on. A couple months ago I got so that I had to get it done. Next of course was to find a piercer who'd actually do the piercing. I read the 'why not how to' BME article about it and saw all the pictures I could manage to fine, which wasn't much.. Including the pictures of the one guy who appeared to be in horrible horrible pain during the procedure. I did ... read more

My First Needle Piercing

I've been addicted to piercings ever since my first set of ear piercings three years ago. It's a sort of ritual - every year end I have to have a set done, usually before exams. After 6 holes in my ears though I wanted to find a new place to pierce. I'm reluctant to do anything to my face (yet), and while tongue piercings are attractive, three years of suffering through braces in high school has left me quite unwilling to live with foreign objects in my mouth again. A bit research on BMEzine the past few weeks led me ... read more
