Septum anniversary

My septum piercing has lasted the best part of ten years. That's pretty good going for me. I have a history of hospital visits where my facial piercings get cut out due to infections caused by impacted teeth. I moved to Poole soon after meeting my husband ten years ago. I worked as a shop assistant for a few years but it wasn't paying the bills (plus one of the volunteers gave me grief after my promotion; I've been working here longer than you've been alive). I decided to apply for a job in a call centre where I sat ... read more

How I learned to stop worrying and love my nose

For as long as I can remember, I've hated my nose.  Okay, scratch that...I do remember a time when I didn't, but that was before middle school bullying and all the stupid, senseless, untrue-but-emotionally-scarring things that kids tend to say at a crucial period of self-esteem development.  So it's strange that I went and got my nose pierced today.  And at the same time, it's not.  There's a kind of semi-twisted logic to it that led me down this road to begin with.   It wasn't an entirely spur of the moment decision, but it was a step into the ... read more

DIY Tragus

To begin with, I have this passion for body mods and once I get an idea in my head, it'll lurk there until I get it done. Needless to say I have experience it piercing both myself and others although I have yet to obtain the "professional piercer" title. Which is due to being under aged. Although I know this is something to look down on I do what I do simply because it is part of what I enjoy. Body modifications are a way of life, not some trend or a "cool" thing. You're either in it for the ... read more

Septum Piercing and Stretching Journey to 4.1mm (So far)

It all started when I randomly thought about how fun a septum piercing would be. The funny thing is, I used to think they were ugly. Amazing How one's tastes can change so quickly. It Is about 6 months old, so obviously I didn't follow the timeline for septum stretching very well. But I've learned a lot in the process so far. I wanted to go to a shop to get it pierced, and called around my current living area, as well as my hometown, Asking for prices. After being told by several of the piercing shops that they Didn't ... read more

Tragus punch (2,5mm/10ga)

Prologue About three years ago I had one tragus pierced at 1,6mm, and a year later I had another one pierced. And a year after  that, when they both had settled down, I decided I wanted to stretch them to a size somewhere around 5mm/4ga. So I grabbed myself some lubricant and gently pushed a 2mm single flared plug through the oldest tragus piercing. The stretching itself was pain-free, but the following night was the start of a bad series of nights. My ear was so painful that I couldn't even sleep on it! And this pain held on for a lot ... read more

The not so visible tragus piercing

Just like every other piercing that I have this was a spur of the moment piercing, minimal thought put into it, the usual for me. This is probably why I only have subtle, easily hidden piercings and no tattoos. I really have too many other things that I need to think about, getting a discreet piercing is fun and requires minimal thought, or at least that's how I like to think about it. Unlike other piercings which were basically minutes or hours after the thought first popped into my head there was actually a delay of a few days between ... read more

Eyebrow + helix

So a couple days ago I decided to head into Planet Ink in Ottawa for a couple new piercings. They have a 2 for $85 deal which I obviously had to take advantage of. I think on Wednesdays it's 2 for $65 but I'm not from Ottawa and I was only going to be there for a few days so I just took what I could get. I went in on a Sunday at like 11 am, and to my surprise the piercer was in and available. In my hometown we have one tattoo parlor and the piercer is only ... read more

Spur of the moment septum

Yet again I found myself getting a piercing I never dreamed I would get. Almost always when I had seen a septum piercing it was on someone with large jewelry and frankly didn’t look appealing to me at all.  Over time I started seeing discreet septum piercings with retainers and other small jewelry.  Suddenly septum piercings didn’t look so bad. My story begins when I was out of town for a few weeks on business.  I found myself walking around a city in Australia with a few hours to spare.  There were many things I could have done but I ... read more

Unplanned Nipple Piercing

As usual, this piercing was spur of the moment, barely thought out.  I guess thats just the way I am when it comes to piercings.  I actually don't like the look of nipple piercings but wanted to see how it would feel and also how it would alter sensations when touched by someone else.  Still, that was idle curiosity and not something I planned to act on. I was at work having a horrific day and was due to be stuck in 6 hours of meetings later in the day.  I honestly didn't think I could stand the day without ... read more

My Corset Piercing Experience

I figured I would write about this experience while it is still fresh in my mind. I've had my full back corset piercing for two days now and it has been quite the new experience for me. First of all, I had no intention of getting something like this done because I know that it is not a permanent piercing but, the shop my piercer happens to work at was having a $120 all you can get pierced sale (which I don't really support but I'll talk about that some other time). Anyways, so I figured why not go all ... read more
