Guys, I'm Getting A Septum

Today is the 24th of June and my 17th birthday. Today, I got a pain in the nose and became a pain in the ass. I'm not a noobie when it comes to piercings but I'm not a veteran either, so you can imagine my excitement/fright that I had when I declared to my friends that I wanted a septum piercing. I've had an interest for a long time mind you but it was more a thought of "How could you...WOULDN'T THAT HURT?!" and I figured that it looked kind of badass too. So this week came and I was ... read more

Double Helix, Double Pain

I've had an interest in body modification for a few years. After my first holes, I was satisfied for a few years. When I was 14, I fell in love with double lobes. After much pleaing, bargaining, and persistance, I got my second pair of piercings at 15. However, I wanted more. I set my eyes on a double helix after seeing a picture of a woman with a CBR on the bottom hole, and a stud on top. It was beautiful. So I set about trying to convince my parents to let me get my cartilage pierced. My mom ... read more

Large gauge tongue piercing

I always saw a tongue piercing as the final frontier for myself. I am a DIY, non-professional piercer (which i would not recommend to ANYONE), and I have pierced almost every part of my body except for my tongue. For some reason I was always too scared to ever attempt piercing my own tongue, but had no problems piercing my nipples and VCH. A tongue piercing was always at the bottom of my list of piercings I wanted to have, until I began reading up on split tongues. My ultimate goal, at this point in time, is to have my ... read more

A Body Modificationand Bonding Weekend

For the longest time a friend of mine, Natalie, has been saying we should meet properly (we met on an online forum) and on a split second decision three weeks ago we set a date for a fun weekend. During those three weeks we decided we should get a tattoo to mark the occasion – just something small and a little random - a puzzle piece with rainbow colours “washing” through it. I got it all booked in with a local artist in my home town of Stamford called Adi Earl (of Earl's Tattoo Studio). Three days before Natalie was ... read more

My lovely venoms.

I've always been a big fan of unusual things; I love people reacting to me like they've never seen something before, so obviously I've never been a big fan of central tongue piercings. I wanted to push my love of unusual piercings even further, and after looking around online, I fell in love with the idea of venoms. I'd never seen anyone in real life with them before, and they looked so much sexier and attractive than a silly old central one. Being 16 and still at school, I didn't have much money, so I decided to get them done ... read more

first piercing

I have been thinking of getting my nipples pierced for a long time. Then one day came when I decided that I would get my nipples pierced. I first made a call to one of the tattoo and piercing shop which was quite well known. I told the person which I assumed to be the piercer that I will be on my way down in about an hour's time. He said okay. To my dismay, when I reached the shop, he told me that he had a tattoo appointment at that time and that he was not able to do ... read more

Tongue Web Piercing

About a year and a half ago, I became obsessed with piercings. I would browse BME all the time, reading stories and looking at all the pictures. At the time, I had two standard lobe piercings on each ear, and a belly button piercing (which went horribly wrong, by the way, but I'll save that for another stoy). Now, my parents were quite strict, and only just allowed me to get my second lobes done the year before (and the belly button was done without their permission), but I really wanted to get a new piercing. I was a bit ... read more

Bloody Conch

I decided to get my second conch pierced recently. The first one is over a year old and has healed nicely. After getting the first one done I waited 6 months to change it to a ring. I waited long enough for the piercing to heel and not form any scars. The ring looked really pretty. However after some time I felt that my look wasn’t very symmetrical. I wanted the piercing on my other ear too. So I decided that I’d go back to a post and get my I went to my local shop and by chance got ... read more

First Piercing-Cheeks

So, I just recently over the last year or so discovered this big wide world of body modification, since the mainstream teaches us that brushing your hair, wearing clothes, etc. is 'normal' and not modifying. I have always enjoyed looking at others tattoos and trying to figure out what the image is of (my dad has a few tattoos that I loved to see) and how some piercings worked with one's anatomy and allowed them to still function normally (in society and biologically). Anyways, when my 18th birthday rolled around I figured I had enough freedom to get a piercing ... read more

FINALLY; my septum.

I've been into body modification seriously for the last 6 years or so. But most people wouldn't guess that by just looking at me, given that up until recently, I had only the standard lobe piercings. Lack of funds and being on a seemingly endless job-hunt have been the biggest roadblocks on my path to modded bliss. Getting my septum pierced was already something I had planned on, but I only recently decided to go through with it. It seemed like the most viable option for my current situation, since I need something I could hide when going to turn ... read more
