One thing led to another.

It all started when I had just moved out of a hick town, Wasaga Beach, to Toronto for school. I was taking a course for Music Business, which I later on regret and found a waste of time. In the mean time, my best friend had moved to Gravenhurst and met some interesting people. Through one of her friends, I was informed about the BME site. I looked at it quite often, just looking at all the pictures. This perked my interest in the bod. mods. The piercings that I had before were mostly in my ears, a nipple ring ... read more

No, I don't have a safety pin stuck to me

I'm going to start off by saying that I've always been into piercings; ever since I was a kid, I was never happy unless I was changing something about how I looked, and it wasn't until I started getting into body modification that I knew it was something I would always love. Over the last 5-6 years now, I've gotten piercings pretty steadily, stretched my lobes, and had scarification work done. This experience, however, marks the beginning of my latest project. Surface piercings have always intrigued me; not all that long ago, I had gotten my nape done, and I've ... read more

One more step to Borgdom

I have been a peruser of BME for a few years now and thought it was about time I contributed something myself. I'm not much of a writer and don't have a scanner or digital camera to submit images so I've never bothered before but I guess we all have to pay our dues sometime so here is my recent experience and latest step in my journey to become an enhanced human being. I am already heavily modded well as far as the general public perceive it. I have over half my body tattooed, large gauge facial and genital piercings, ... read more

Is that really a piercing?

About 3 months ago I started looking into pocketing. I liked how it looked and thought it would enhance my body further. I immediately started looking at pictures and reading through some experiences, which I recommend everyone does before getting something done. I went down to the studio I go to armed with a little knowledge and a lot of questions. I talked with my piercer and he mentioned something about flesh stapling. I had come across this in my research but the studio didn't offer it. James, the piercer, wanted to do flesh stapling since they have a much ... read more

a lower back flesh staple

So, about a year ago I had this idea: a ladder of metal bars extending between the peaks of muscle on either side of my spine. (Not everyone has these, find a really thin dancer and ask them to twist to one side.) Like most people who indulge in body modification, I have this idea of making my outer/ physical self match what I believe my true/ inner self looks like. Although, to a point that would require far more than a few piercings and tattoos here or there, the body art is gorgeous, fun to get and helps me ... read more

a first stapling experience (for both me and my piercer)

While I love surface piercings, I'm not too fond of the fact that they get snagged easily, causing tearing and scarring. They're also really difficult to heal, or so I've heard. I've been wanting a ladder on the back of my neck, but I know a handful of people around here with them and I wanted something a little different. I'd seen a few pictures of stapling on this site, but never actually seen one in person. So I started asking around, not certain exactly what the procedure involved, and although I have several friends who are piercers not a ... read more

The rise and fall of my flesh staples

It has been some time since the implementation and subsequential removal of my flesh staples. I belive the staples would still be with me today if my lifestyle choices were different. They did take a lot of punishment at various concerts and clubs. I had been waiting for flesh staple for quite some time and the opportunity to have them done was quickly approaching. I was excited, more so than with any other piercing I've had. But as I got closer and closer to the studio I could feel the nerves and the slight twitch in my little fingers. No ... read more

100% healed pocketing

First of all, I am not a generally supporter of modifications being done at home. If you have enough skill that it will come out better at home, or deep spiritual beliefs, then go for it. If not, a professional would be the best choice. Now, onto the fun stuff. While at the park on a summer afternoon, I was approached by a young man who asked if I knew anything about pocketing. He explained to me he had seen it on BME, but never known anyone else who knew much about it. I told him I wouldn't do it ... read more

Navel Pocket

It all started about 4 months ago, when I first started to investigate the highly varying world of body modification. I thought it would look quite cool to have a long surface bar, going from one side of the navel and then to the other side. So two piercings joined in only using one piece of jewellery. However this was not to be as all studios were not prepared to risk such a piercing. I thus researched a bit on BME and found the wonderful world of pocketing. After looking around the site a bit my mind was made up, ... read more

Pockets Made of Metal

I had spent a lot of time on BME gathering information in regards to pocket piercings. They had intrigued me for a while, but I hadn't had enough information in the early stages to actually warrant my getting it done. After a couple of months of gaining knowledge, I was still unsure of where on my body I wanted the pocketings to go. One random morning I had woken up and found myself with this grand idea of pocketing the insides of my collarbones. I had seen the pockets on the outside of the collarbones before, but never on the ... read more
