I Love Ears: A Tragus Tale

I have always liked ears and the variety of piercings that people get in them. So, it was no surprise when the tragus caught my eye. Two of my friends have their tragii pierced and a girl that just transferred from our school posted pictures of her fresh tragus adorned with the cutest heart shaped stud. I decided that I wanted my tragus pierced too and started to do my research. I even put together a PowerPoint to ask my mom, who told me years ago after my second lobe piercings "no more ear piercings". I pulled out all the ... read more

Do Your Research - Nose Piercing

I think that I had better start by setting the scene...I was just 18 and I had wanted my nose pierced since I was 14 but respected my parents wishes to be 18 first. It was the summer holidays and I decided it was time. I knew of a tattoo parlour on the high street that is always busy and looked very clean (and hygiene certificates on show). I went in and asked if they did a drop in service for piercings. As they did I paid up. The parlour is very small and was full at the time so ... read more

A Needle and Thread DIY

Allow me to start by saying that I do strongly believe that you should see professionals for any type of body modification. DIY piercings can be done, and properly, but there a far greater number of risks. I consider myself very fortunate to have been without complication, but I wouldn’t pierce anything other than my ears by myself. Well, I had quit my job, and have no funds for, well, anything. I was seriously considering going to World Domination, which is the closest, cheapest place to go (they have a pretty bad rep, but its more for creepiness than uncleanliness; ... read more

Tongue Piercing

I had my tongue pierced about 5 weeks ago and I absolutely love it! I've had a few piercings before (lobes x2, cartilage on ear and nose twice as I put some dodgy jewellery in it the first time round and had to let it close up) but my tongue was going to my my next big one. I'd wanted it done since I was about 16 - I am now 18 - but my parents hated it and had said no. A few people I knew from college had it done though, as did my boyfriend, and I was ... read more

Auricle Piercing That Won't Be the Last

Location: Wellington N., Sherbrooke, Quebec Artist: Charlie Date: April 23, 2010 I had been toying with the idea of piercing my left conch for nearly two years. I has an unexpected afternoon off from work at the theatre (I'm a technician at my university) and planned a trip to the mall to get some new shoes. I had a nice leisurely lunch at home. I lost track of time at one point and I realized that I was going to miss the next bus if I didn't hurry out the door. I ran to the bus stop to see the ... read more

My first surface piercing! x3!

When I fancy a particular piercing, it will take me a few weeks to a few months to feel comfortable enough with the idea of actually getting it. I research placements, correct jewelry, personal stories, potential problems and facts about the piercing itself. I like to know what I'm getting into and what sort of things I may expect. When I first saw a dermal anchor piercing a few years ago, I was very curious. I knew of surface bar piercings, but these new fangled piercings allowed for a single gem or disc to just "float" somewhere. It was too ... read more

DIY lip frenum and sublingual

So I’m a nurse. I also love piercings. These two facets of my personality don’t always see eye to eye. I love getting interesting new piercings but I’m running out of creative spots to hide them for work. I’d heard of web piercings before and figured they’d be easily hidden. I already had a center tongue piercing that I had stretched to a 6 gauge. I have a small mouth so I wasn’t sure how much room I had under my tongue for a sublingual. So I decided on an upper lip frenum piercing (otherwise known as a smiley). Again ... read more

My Eyebrow <3

I had gotten my center labret pierced during my trip to Nova Scotia in November, and I loved it. I loved the thought of it, i loved my piercer (who was recommended to me by a friend and her very pierced older sister) i loved the process, i loved how it looked - everything. And anyone who has a piercing says the same thing, they're addictive. So when I got back home (to Newfoundland) I immediately started checking out different piercings, and figuring out which one would look best on me. For my next trip in April (I have to ... read more

#16, Tongue Piercing

After being a BME reader for more than a year and having worked my courage enough for more than a few piercings in the past year by way of stories I've found on here, I decided it was time for me to get my own BME account and finally contribute. Seeing as how it's freshest in my mind, I'll start with my most recent piercing, my 12ga tongue piercing. I got it done a week ago at Dragon FX in Kingsway Mall, by Lexci Million. She's been my go-to piercer for the past year, ever since she did my two ... read more

My Impulsive Septum Experience!

I had my tongue pierced in November '09 and just a couple of months later, I wanted another piercing! I went to Dare 2 Wear in Amsterdam. One of the piercers there, Sam, did my tongue and I was quite happy with it. By the way, if you search for tongue splitting on Youtube, you will see a great video of her getting her's done! I liked the idea of a semi-hidden piercing. I had never considered the septum before because I did not like the "bull ring" look. Even a retainer looked strange to me. I guess that this ... read more
