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

My long awaited tongue piercing :)

I have wanted my tongue pierced since I was 12 years old, but having very sensible parents I was not allowed it done until I was quite a bit older (which is of course a good thing!). Although it really did wind me up when I was younger, I am pleased they made me wait because it allowed me to be mature in my choice, as at the end of the day, it can be a dangerous piercing if you get it done at the wrong place! And you have to be really strict in caring for it (no infections ... read more

My Conch : Favourite Piercing To Date

I'd been thinking for a while that I wanted a new piercing, and after having my lobes pierced twice on each side and then getting a helix at the top of one ear, I wanted something to fill the gap in the middle. My ear looked like it was missing something, and I felt that a new piercing was it! I had a look around on the internet and waited for the little granulation on my helix piercing to disappear before settling on getting a conch piercing. I'd seen someone with one and thought it looked cool, and merrily coerced ... read more

Nape piercing

Despite always being interested in piercings, apart from my lobes (which I rarely utilise) and a lip piercing which I took out after a week, the only 'real' piercing I had was a tiny gem in my nostril. I wanted something more but I couldn't find anything I liked. After scouring BME I discovered surface piercings. I was instantly intrigued and spent a long time reading experiences, looking at pictures and researching all the potential implications. Eventually, I decided on an anti-brow and even booked an appointment before chickening out. I realised that if the piercing rejected, which was highly ... read more

Septum, times two!!

So, my septum piercing. I'd wanted one for a long time but for one reason or another never had it done. At the time (this was in 2007) I had snakebites, a monroe and my tongue pierced and was debating getting my septum done. I finally decided one day that I'd just go ahead and do it. I was with a few friends and we all walked downtown together. The shop is conveniently down the street from my university so I would often see flocks of rebellious kids go in groups to get piercings or tattoos. In any case, I ... read more

The Story Of My Bridge

I had never really loved piercings until around May this year when I went for my first piercing ever, which was my septum. Between May and July I got my septum, industrial, daith, eyebrow and smiley pierced. After that I left the piercings for a few months. But after a while I started getting the urge to get another piercing. I was about to go on a 2 week holiday to New Caledonia so I thought this would be the perfect time to get another piercing since I wouldn't have work for another 2 weeks. The question was, "what to ... read more
