Piercings should be done for the right reasons and not just done on a whim

Ever since I was a little kid, I always knew that I wanted to get piercings and tattoos. I always wanted them not because is was the cool thing to do or anything like that. I personally believe that if anybody gets body piercings or tattoos because that's the cool thing to do now a days is really dumb. I always knew that I was going to get them because I've always loved them. I loved everything about tattoos and body piercings. I'll never forget the first time I ever saw someone that had a piercing. I was ten years ... read more

Nape Piercing - What a shock!!

I had wanted my nape pierced for ages, at first I never thought it would be something I would get done, just something that I would always look at and like on other people. I must have been looking at pictures and reading stories myself for about 18 months before I actually decided I wanted it done. I have never actually planned my piercings, I want most things pierced and I usually just randomly get them done one by one. When I was in town one Saturday afternoon I just decided 'What the hell!' and marched off to Stephs Piercing ... read more

My New 14 Gauge Microdermal

On Monday, the first day of Spring, I decided to go and visit my old piercer Belinda at her new location in the city... However, much to my disappointment she wasn't there. I was just looking to drop in, have a chat and see how she was, but my trip to the piercing studio later entailed more than that, which is always a good thing. I met Robin, who is the other piercer who works with my friend Belinda at Off Ya Tree on Oxford Street in Sydney. Robin and I were talking for a little while about the advantages ... read more

My microdermals, my favourite mod so far!

For several years I'd liked the look of surface bars, I liked the fact you could adorn almost any part of your body with metal. However, after a lot of reading into it I discovered the high rate of rejection and the ugly scars that were usually left behind. Unsatisfied with this discovery, I decided that although pretty, a surface bar was not the modification for me. Recently though, I read about microdermals here on BME and the old craving returned. It seemed that they were almost an alternative to surface bars but could have more success. As they were ... read more

Collarbone Surface Piercing (not under the bone)

I'd seen photos of collarbone piercings on BMEzine, and thought vaguely about getting one for years. By current boyfriend has several piercings, and this renewed my desire to get more things pierced. I really like the way collarbone piercings look, they're fairly easy to hide, and they're not as permanent as my tattoos. I did a little research, and decided now was the time. I knew exactly where to go- River City, the best piercing shop in Richmond, VA. I'd gone to the owner, Jessika, several times before, and she was always helpful, professional, and patient. She'd won many points ... read more

Wrist Micro dermal

I can't recall when I first saw a micro dermal piercing, but some how I got the idea in my head that I wanted one on my wrist. I started attempting to research the micro dermal piercing. I found some other terms it goes by such as anchor piercing. I looked at some pictures anti- eye brow and sternum piercings, but knew I wanted mine on my wrist. I have always wanted a tattoo on my wrist, but given the idea that I plan to enter a professional world, decided it could wait- or I just wouldn't have a tattoo ... read more

Wrist Microdermals.

While on a break from stretching my ears I began researching different body modifications on BME and became interested in microdermals after reading Shannon's article (http://www.bmezine.com/news/pubring/20061106.html). The way they could be placed anywhere while being (to me) more aesthetically appealing than surface piercings made them the first choice for my next mod. After browsing BME and other sites for information on the procedure and possible locations I talked to my friend Amy about placement. I decided I would like them either at the back of my lower calves or above each wrist. After seeing a photo and appreciating how small ... read more

Surface piercing, round two

When I got my first piercing six years ago, I didn't know what I was getting into. It was my navel, the typical first piercing for a young, high school girl. I was more nervous than I had ever been for anything; however, after getting it done, a new feeling had awakened in me. I wanted more. So that's what I did. Over the next six years, I got pierced another eight times. The piercings varied from my eyebrow, to my lip, to my multi navel, to my sternum. My most recent one, which I got done just two days ... read more

Spinal Piercings

I've been going to Big Brain for years now, since about 2004. I always have Smitty do my piercings cause he's the best. He's never messed up a piercing on me. In addition to the piercings described in this experience, he's done my nipples three times (twice horizontal and once vertical), tragus twice, an industrial, helix 4 times, a 4g plug in the cartilage, stretching my lobes to ¾ inch, tongue twice (and I have a very prominent frenulum. Kinda wish he could cut that for me!), PA, and... well, hell, I can't remember all of em! I consider Smitty ... read more

Sassy Sternum

For every landmark birthday of mine I like to get something to remember it by. Most of the time I get piercings, I am more comfortable with that than tattoos. I got my navel done on my 18th birthday. I was thinking of something that my dad wouldn't see. I just knew that he would flip out. (By the way, he still hasn't found out! :) ) I was thinking for my 21st birthday I would get something else done but, instead of keeping it from just my dad, I have to keep it from my mom too. They are ... read more
