Vertical Industrial Explosion!!

Firstly I should point out that (despite the title) my industrial piercing did not explode, it just looked like it had! My 28 year old friend finally decided that after 10 years of wanting it she was going to get her tongue pierced. I went with her having been through the experience and tried to calm her nerves. She was so nervous that the only thing I could do was get a piercing myself (shame...not!) to prove it was nothing! After a few moments contemplation I decided to go for a vertical industrial through my helix & conch. So I ... read more

My wonderful Belly

I gave birth for the first and only time 6 years ago, on the 18th of March 2005. I have a wonderful little boy named Tobias (his portrait is on my middle back (done by an artist who had 8 years tattooing experience, but had despite drawing many portraits never tattood a portrait but wanted to, but without portraits in his portfolio couldn't 'sell' the idea of a portrait tattoo to any-one, so I donated my back for him to do his first portrait tattoo, the result is better than a lot of portraits I've seen & not as good ... read more

Finally got an industrial.

For a little over a year, I have been wanting an industrial piercing. I was afraid that I would not be able to get one since I have small ears. I have read online some ears are not suited for Industrial piercing cause they are too small, some parts of the ear sticks out or whatever. BUT after a year of wanting one I got up the money, and courage, to get one. I went to a place called Lucky Draw Tattoos. My friend had recently gotten a tattoo from them, so I thought it was a good place to ... read more

My Ear Stretching Journey

When I was 16, I began to develop a liking for body modification. I would see people on the street with tattoos, piercings, and giant earlobe holes, and I just knew that I had to be a part of this movement. Stretching piercings is a gutsy move. I was nervous, but my boyfriend was supportive, and he was always encouraging me. I had a good friend in highschool who was into stretching. She told me that there were such things called 'claws' and 'tapers'. She also told me of a hole-in-the-wall dollar store that sold random body jewelry and stretching ... read more

Nape piercing part 2

Ever since I starting visiting my local shop and browsing through the artist's portfolios, I've been in love the look of surface piercings on the nape of the neck. So after considering this modification for awhile, I pulled the trigger while visiting home in 2006. I remember being really nervous during all of my piercer's prep-work, and it being my most painfull piercings ever. But it healed so perfectly and it was so perfectly centered that it was for sure my favorite modification. I never had a problem with my jobs having problems since I was able to hide it ... read more

Piercings For Life

About seven months ago I decided it was time for a piercing.. a real piercing. I've loved tattoos/piercings since I was a little kid. My earlobes have been pierced since I was 6-ish and I had my cartilage pierced for about a year until it got infected. Since then I've had three tattoos done- a dragonfly (my first and favorite), music notes behind my ear, and an unfinished half sleeve. My original inspiration for tattoos and piercings came from my older cousin. She had several piercings and they all looked very beautiful. The one that first caught my eye though ... read more

Tragus FAIL

I've always wanted a tragus piercing ever since I first saw my cousin sporting one. It was a unique, but still classy. I just HAD to have one. When I was sixteen, I finally got my wish. My best friend and I were scouting places for her to get a new tattoo (she was eighteen). She finally found a place that she liked. It had an illustrious mural on the outside of famous painters and musicians, and it had some of their quotes. There was a giant clothing shop filled with cute shirts and bikinis. I figured I could check ... read more

The First Pick (An Industrial Affair)

It was a sunny day at the start of June of 2008, and I'd just turned 16. This was the day I'd decided I was going to get my first piercing in a studio. With cash in one hand, and a friend in the other I headed down to my local shop; Esoterik Body Art. I sat down in the waiting room, and glanced at the price list, but I knew I was going in for an Industrial. I felt it was tame enough for a first 'different' piercing, as it was an ear piercing, but it was a unique ... read more

Tongue Piercing

I had decided I wanted to add to my growing collections of piercings but didn't want to travel to glasgow again so I went to this place in our town in greenock which I had heard great things about. The place was pierce 'n' place also known as ula's. I was more nervous about this piercing than any previous ones as I had read all the online horror stories. When i arrived at the studio I had a short wait before I was taken into the back. I immediatly noticed how sterile the room was... always the first thing I ... read more

my septum project.

I've wanted a facial piercing for over 3 years now, not knowing which one i wanted to get. Initially i wanted snakebites, then my nostril, then back to snakebites. Until eventually i decided i wanted my septum pierced. I thought "Hey, it's simple, practical, and all around awesome." I've researched the piercing for months. How it was done, the tools used, how to know if your piercer is qualified. I watched many videos of it being done. In almost all the videos, the piercer used clamps. But i also found out that an alternative to the painful clamps were receiving ... read more
