A friendly puncture

Well, here goes. I've been out of the BM scene for a few years now and begin to miss it moreso daily, so here I am. In fact, I still have a few relics from my days of large lobes and various other mods - my un-closable ears and the scar tissue in my lip. It is regarding the latter that I write about tonight. Here's the story of a lip piercing. So, I had a friend, right - a pretty darn good friend who happened to double as a pretty darn good amateur needle-maestro. Her and I would talk ... read more

Dermal Punched 8 Gauge (3mm) Nasallang

Back in the early days of January, 2010, an idea started forming in my head. Fresh from having seen James Cameron's new box office colossus, Avatar, I had an itch in my nose. An itch for a Nasallang. I won't deny the connection. Seeing the Chief of the Plains tribe with his epic nose piercing, I found myself craving just such a distinction. Perhaps exacerbating the situation, was the fact that I have a penchant for disabusing people of their preconceived notations. Being that I was also finishing my bachelors degree in Physics, what better way, I thought, to demonstrate ... read more

My tragus piercing!

So I'll start off saying that I've been really interested in body modification, especially piercings, though I only had 5 myself (4 on my lobes, one on my cartilage, all gunned, bad I know). Because my parents are pretty old fashion when it comes to piercings, just the standard earlobes. One day, I casually brought up a tragus piercing to my mum, and to my surprise, she immediately said yes! I asked my dad, who was skeptical, but eventually agreed. Before I had even asked my parents, I had begun looking for a shop that pierce it for me, which ... read more

Conch Stabbing

I had been craving a piercing for the longest time, it felt like forever since I had last been 'stabbed'. The only problem was, I wasn't sure what I wanted. With my limited funds and lack of enthusiasm for anything more on my face, (I already have three visible facial piercings and didn' t want to look cluttered or like a pin cushion.) I wasn't sure would I could get. Nipples were something that I had wanted for a long time, but those were too expensive for my poor student ass. I opted for something on the ear. I spent ... read more

once upon a time

About a week before my holidays I decided to get my septum piercing done. I had wanted it for a long time and this seemed like a good opportunity since I could let it heal without anyone at work being able to notice it. I tend to look at such things with doom and gloom so normally tend to come up with a reason why not to do it and this at least gave me peace of mind since I could pretend I wasn’t really going forward with it. Then Feb. 1st came and I was dubious as hell. I ... read more

Nipples stretched to 8 Ga., w/Internally threaded barbells

I pierced both nipples in 1997 with a std. 14 ga. barbell. Sometime in 2006 I decided that I wanted to stretch my piercings. I had read that the pain could be intense and I craved that feeling, similar I thought to the great feeling I had right after my nipples were first pierced. So I ordered in the 12 gauge jewelry and...it slipped right in. Damn, over the years my piercings had stretched on their own. So in 2007 I decided to get 10 ga. jewelry, and a 10 gauge taper and try it again. One more time, not ... read more

Doing up the Button

Doing UP The Button ~ By February 2009 I had discovered that I had a small addiction to piercing, or was it just to the sparklies that filled the resultant holes. By this time I had three holes in each ear (two cartilage), one in my nose and one in my most special of girly places, all of which I had grown to love and couldn’t imagine being without. But as with any family, a new member is always greeted with joy and love and it was time for the birth of my belly button piercing. I was always a ... read more

My Long-Anticipated Nostril Piercing

I've been into piercing from the time I was 12. I was fascinated by helix piercings (which had just started coming on the mainstream scene) and I wanted one very badly. Eventually I did get one, and since then I've been (not so) patiently awaiting my next piercing. So what would it be? I looked at lip rings for a few years, then decided they'd look silly on me. I never really thought about piercing my nose, until my stepmother suggested it to me the day after my high school graduation. I gave the matter some thought, and ultimately decided ... read more

My lovely labret!

Ever since I was 12 years old I really really wanted to get my lip pierced. My parents (of course) were always super against that idea so I had to wait. One day (five years later after moving out of my parents place in Nova Scotia to Newfoundland with my boyfriend) my friend who had her center labret and tongue pierced found ourselves in Halifax visiting my fam. I had called before the trip and booked an appointment at a well-known piercing and tattoo place called Sin on Skin. I had to get my boyfriend to call and make the ... read more

Nape: bane of my existance, love of my life.

After seeing my dear friend walk around the halls of high school with light bouncing off the back of her neck, I knew then I had to get my nape pierced. Piercings and tattoos had always rolled around in the back of my mind, for I've always seen them as an extension of physical beauty and art, but growing up with a slightly neurotic mother had always inhibited these thoughts from becoming a reality. That was until I discovered the nape piercing and a lovely cheque for $100 under my bed. One sunny Sunday afternoon, I dragged my friend down ... read more
