My lovely microdermal wrist piercing

A few months ago I went with my friend as she got her nose pierced. While I was waiting for her procedure, I took a gander at the books of piercings that the studio had to offer. I was immediately intrigued by the single point piercing. I had only dreamed of such a thing! I always wanted a body modification, but I felt the need for something new and original. In the past I thought about having pocketing done on my wrist, but thought it would get pulled out by clothing or something. This new microdermal would have only one ... read more

Treated like a ROCKSTAR while getting a Dermal Anchor

It's funny. I am unbelievably socially anxious, yet I often find myself on one of the most bustling streets in Providence: Thayer Street. Now, I enjoy the tea on that street, but I can put the kettle on at home. What usually turns out to be the main purpose of braving panic attacks in this part of the city is Rockstar Body Piercing. This proves true for the 22nd of August, 2008. I had been talking/writing about how I thought dermal anchoring sounded like a really awesome idea for quite some time. At around 8pm on said evening, my boyfriend ... read more

Microdermal experience four times over.

I decided to get two microdermals done after a long year of thinking about it. At first I wanted to get a surface piercing on my wrists and I researched it and read testimonials only to quickly realize that any kind of surface piercing on my wrists would be a bad idea. I live a fairly active life and can't count the number of times I've accidentally bumped my arms into other things. I also work with small children so anything within their reach would have also been a bad idea considering they liked to touch first and ask questions ... read more

The short life of a dermal anchor (NSFW)

It has actually been a little more than a year since I have had my dermal anchor in place but none the less, this is my story. I went to the shop I frequent one evening to set an appointment to get my arm tattooed when low and behold my friend (the piercer at the shop) had received some dermal anchors and a little instruction booklet in the mail recently and was looking for a friend to use as his first client. I eventually agreed to let him try this procedure on me knowing that I probably wouldn't keep it ... read more

I decide to get a microdermal. Hilarity ensues.

My friend Ivy introduced me to a place at St. Marks called Whatever Tattoo back in February. Before then, I got my eyebrow piercing at some other place on that street, and after that, I began buying my jewelry at Andromeda down the block because that place has some credibility. Generally, St. Marks is the place most people in NYC go to get their piercings/tattoos/bongs/pipes/salvia etc. There are probably around a dozen stores on that one street that does tattoos or piercings. Generally, from what I can tell, St. Marks gets a pretty bad reputation (one person actually implied that ... read more

the lazy persons necklace

I am an incredibly lazy person – so lazy, in fact, that the act of accessorizing is something I just cannot be bothered with. Putting on and taking off dangly jewelry everyday just does not appeal to me. Still, I love that little extra sparkle. This is why I decided to get my 2 clavicle surface bars. I had been thinking about them for years. When I had first decided I really wanted them, they were illegal in Massachusetts. I read up on them a bit and even though I knew there was a high rejection rate I decided I ... read more

Hip Microdermals =D

I was fourteen years old when I decided that I wanted my hips pierced. I researched around on the internet quite a bit before proposing the idea to my mum. She agreed with it, and we found out that microdermals are much safer than surface bars and have a lower rejection rate. Next, we looked into piercing shops fairly close to where I live, and found that Dragon FX in Kingsway does them. I also heard some positive things about Dragon FX from my friends, so that's always good. On a lovely Saturday afternoon, we drove up to Edmonton (about ... read more

Surface tragus by a hot guy

So today I was lying in my bed at quarter to 2 and my brother was playing a stupid shooting game too loud for my liking next door so I decided to go out... and get pierced. There's plenty of piercings I want so today all I had to do was decide on the least painful, seeing as I was hardly psyched up for it, and that was the surface tragus. I have an anti-tragus which is the worst piercing I've ever had (I later found out today that it was pierced with a bar that was way too thick, ... read more

Rook to Daith Industrial

I've wanted a rook piercing for a while, and had been considering a daith. So why not combine the two? That would be pretty interesting. I called Colorbomb Tattoo (formerly Lynnwood Tattoo), where I have been pierced multiple times, and asked if they could do that and how much it might cost, knowing that it probably wasn't something that's done very often. I had to go in for a "consultation" to see if it would be able to be done in my ear (and so they could come up with a price). I thought that was pretty professional of them. ... read more

Putting a Hole in my Neck.

Just after Christmas in 2007, I decided I wanted a new body piercing. I had been thinking about it for awhile, and decided that I wanted a nape piercing, which is a piercing in the back of your neck for those of you unfamiliar with the term 'nape.' I called in and asked some questions, then headed on down to Richmond St. with a friend and we waited. The foyer of the store was very clean, and organized. The staff were very friendly and courteous. There were several photo albums full of pictures of tattoos and piercings that they had ... read more
