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

Want to hear my surface piercing story!

Well, I had wished to get piercings and tattoos since I was old enough to know what they were, but wasn't sure what I wanted to get. My mother had a small tattoo of a solid circle on her thumb and my dad had pierced his ear lobe infront of me when I was about 5, and in both instances I remember staring in amazement, asking questions and loved how it sort of 'set them apart'. So, I got my lobes pierced on my 6th birthday always wanting more. However I never did but decided that when I get a ... read more

Nape Piercing

My nape was my first surface piercing. Yes, I got it done with surface bars. To my surprise, my piercer does not use surface bars. I am sure this is why I hear so many people that have rejected surface piercing. I am not sure why he does not use surface bars, short of people in our small town probably been too cheap to pay for them to use in their piercing. Anyway, I always brings in my own jewelry for piercing (always ordered from BMEshop). He does, however, use that tygon flexible material. I hear this is the next ... read more

My special Birthday present

I've been fascinated by piercings for ages, but only in the past year or so have I gone past the usual lobe piercings I got when I was 7 and became more interested in body modification and the like. After upgrading my 2 lobe piercings to 11, with my navel done twice, my nose and my ears 8 times including an 0ga/8mm stretched lobe piercing. I decided I wanted something... different. That I didn't see every other day and that would get me some reactions. And whilst browsing through BME I found something that caught my eye. Surface piercings. My ... read more

my hips, I'm in awe.

It's probably not the healthiest habit, but I get a piercing when I'm sad/upset. I work in an office and have to cover most of them though, it gets hard, but it just challenges me to be creative with what I'm wearing that day. Bulky, loose ribbon around the wrist to cover a surface bar? Sure. No problem. I pretty much have to steer clear of low cut tops at work due to the shiny extensions of my sternum. I saw photos of hip surface piercings and fell in love. Like, actual, tangible love. The night before I had to ... read more

Madison

My fifteenth piercing was an easy choice. I was already sporting; six lobe piercings, tragus, helix, anti-helix, lip, labret, nipple and top & bottom navel. I wanted something a bit different. Ever since my discovery of BME, I had been interested in surface piercings, especially the Madison. It's different enough for people to be intrigued by it, and easy enough to conceal if needed. After doing my research and deciding that this is what I was going to get, I wasted no time. It was a Saturday morning and I had to go to work. On my way through town, ... read more

Dropping Anchor into New Water

"We're Guinea pigs. Test dummies for modern technology" -It rings in my head, yet I don't feel disturbed by it. It was just another night, hanging out down at Anomaly while my friends were inquiring about potential piercing. I was making my usual trips around the display cases looking at the copious amounts of precious stone plugs and eyelets that I've grown fond of. Whenever I enter a piercing studio I get the strongest urge to get something new done, and this was no exception. My last piercing had been over 6 months ago (vertical nipples), and I was drying ... read more

Collarbone/Sternum? Piercing

I went to Adam's Body Art to get a cleavage piercing done. However, the surface bar I had was too long for the movement in the area. So unfortunately, I was not able to get it done. (Besides, I have always wondered why a piercer who doesn't do navel piercing on anyone who is more than stick thin— because of fear of stomach flab—would place a surface bar in the middle of two large breasts that would only suffocate the piercing?) In a way, it is fortunate it did not work out on account of been too long of jewelry ... read more
