Sternum piercing/infection/healing

'll start this by saying that I'm a Registered Nurse with nineteen prior piercings. I debated for about 2 months after seeing a photo of a sternum piercing to get mine done. I'd never had an infection from a piercing, and I wondered how a surface piercing so close to my heart would heal. I was in a new city due to being a travel nurse so I went to the most reputable piercing/tattoo shop. Luckily it was just up the street from my house. Brandon and another worker from the shop greeted me promptly when I entered. Brandon immediately ... read more

New Scaffold....

Well, as we all seem to start off. I got the 'itch'. Oh yes, you know the one I'm talking about..... I got up one Saturday morning, and decided, I wanted another piercing (O.K, maybe I'd been thinking about it for a few days before)....... Hmmmm, decisions, decisions....oh what to have next?? There are so many that I'm wanting at the moment... I had been looking on BME, and decided I wanted something else done on my ear. I decided on a scaffold (industrial bar in the U.S). I like the look of them, they're gorgeous, and quite unusual here ... read more

My surface piercing

I think I'll start by introducing myself, my name is Paige and I'm 15 years old. I'll go ahead and admit now that I shouldn't do my own piercings. I strongly urge anyone that reads this to go to a professional that knows what they're doing!! Anyway one day I got the "itch". Anyone that has any piercing knows what I mean. One's never enough is it? Oh well, anyway, I signed on to BME (thanks for all the information guys!!). The first thing that caught my eye was the surface piercing page. So I clicked on it. I went ... read more

My Sternum(Cleavage) Piercing-amazing!

I have been searching online for my next piercing for the past few months and I came across the Sternum piercing. I loved how it looked and I get a rush just thinking about it. I spent almost every night for a few weeks collecting info on the piercing. There are a few procedures that sounded kind of nasty to me. Some involved a razor and others involved clamps. The clamps didn't really bother me much, so I decided as long as my piercer didnt use razors, I was good. About 4 days ago, my brother and I went down ... read more

My shining cleavage

To begin, I'd like to give you a little background, as a bit of a warning. If you're thinking of getting anything pierced, make sure you research the piercing itself and the intended studio. Never get a piercing done somewhere just because it's cheap, because when it comes to piercings, you really do get what you pay for. On the 17th of June, I decided I'd get my sternum pierced. I'd looked at photos on BME and decided that it was time I got it done. Throughout all my looking and admiring, I never actually thought about the jewellery, I ... read more

So far, so GREAT!

I had 3 piercings at the time(tongue, lip, prince albert) and wanted something a little more different from my trendy piercings. So after many nights of surfing the net (much thanks to BME!), I came across surface piercings. When I first saw them I thought to myself, OUCH! But for some reason I was drawn into them. I did not really like the idea of a barbell through my skin but after a little more research I came across Surface Bar piercings. Surface Bars are staple shaped barbells that have internally threaded bead(or disk) caps on each end that peeks ... read more

Results day and money make for a good reason for a sternum

The day of my GCSE results arrived, and I had just got my results. I was happy with them so I wanted to get a piercing to show and mark the occasion. But alas, I hadn't got enough money for what I wanted at the time. My mum and I had an agreement that she would buy me a sewing machine, as I'm finishing school, and going out to get a job, I didn't think it would be all that helpful. I would rather have the money, I mean, I could always buy a sewing machine once I start working. ... read more

Nape Expierence

2nd September 2006 Piercing time: 10.15am Hello my name is 'Chris' and I live in Australia. Today I got my nape pierced at the age of 16. I have always wanted to get my nape pierced for around 18 months, I kept on putting it off though because I wasn't completely sure if I really wanted to get it done, and the fact that I was afraid of it rejecting, etc. So, on the 2nd of September I had arranged to go to the movies with this chick "Emma", and I was talking to her the night before and said ... read more

my new cleavage piercing

I decided about a year ago that I wanted a surface piercing. I have had quite a few piercings before but wanted something a bit different. I spent a while researching them and originally wanted my nape done. I was scrolling through pictures on here when I came across some pictures of cleavage piercings. I knew right then that I wanted one. I spent a couple of weeks researching them and found out that they can be quite hard to keep in and maintain. I knew i was running the risk though whatever surface piercing I had. I had been ... read more

Is that a piercing in your neck?!

I have been very interested in piercing since the age of 9. I begged my parents to let me get my ears pierced for my 10th birthday. Since then I have been adding to my collection. After getting the common helix piercings and nostril, I wanted something that was semi-unique. Something you don't see every day. I did a lot of surfing on BME and came across a beautiful piercing that I feel in love with. It was the nape. I knew I wanted it!! Due to many things such as an uptight employer and nerves, I put the piercing ... read more
