And back up to 25 we go

Just as background, I am a 19 year old, sophomore in college, who now has 25 piercings. These piercings include paired high nostrils, a retired standard nostril, a standard navel, a retired inverse navel, and various ear piercings (lobes, snug, daith, industrial, helices, retired tragus, anti-tragus, and rook). I never thought that I would get a conch piercing: I actually thought that after I got my anti-tragus pierced that I had finished with my ears. But I realized that the inner part of my right ear looked bare compared to my left, and I needed something to even them out. ... read more

Second Time Is An Opal Charm

As a fifteen year old way back in the mid-1990s, I once spent a late night lying on the floor of my bedroom, shoving a sewing needle through the flap of skin above my navel. An hour of muttered curses and profuse sweating later, the needle ("sterilized, " naturally, with rubbing alcohol--oh the follies of pre-Internet youth) was finally through and a sterling silver flea market hoop earring was jammed through the hole. Extraordinary amounts of parental screaming, which admittedly I deserved--nobody try this at home--followed. It should surprise precisely nobody that this ill-educated DIY piercing rejected post-haste leaving me ... read more

Just want to get it right...

I already have more than a few body mods but that same old itch to get another one hit hard. I started out by looking around on Google and BME before finally deciding on the right side of my lip. I didn't have but a little bit of money at the time so I figured the best option would be one that I could manage on my own. My lip didn't seem to be something difficult or something that would require much experience. First things first, I had to get my supplies. This gave me about four or five days ... read more

1/2" at last

Here is the continued story of my ears. I started stretching my lobes nearly two years ago now -- I honestly can't believe it' been that long. Despite a few fuck-ups, I'm generally pretty cautious, and I sat at 00 for around a year before I decided to stretch up. My usual go-to place for jewelry in Edmonton is Strange City, as it's where I get all my piercings done, and they're amazing, so I'm more than happy to give them my money. The unfortunate thing is that a lot of people also have this idea, so the stock can ... read more

navel ring infection

I had been interested in getting a tattoo but after reading and researching about it a lot, I decided I wanted to have an experience getting pierced first. I had just lost 30 pounds so I decided to reward myself with a navel piercing. My parents are also Mormon and would be very upset if I had a piercing even though I was 18. I planned it for a long time but actually going to get it done was slightly impulsive. My friends wanted to ditch the last day of high school and I suggested we just go to a ... read more

Another wonderful piercing; my vertical labret

I was sitting at home one day doing a whole lot of nothing and playing with my lip when I came to a sudden realization; it's completely possible to have a lip piercing that started where a labret would be but came out the top of the bottom lip. As soon as I realized this I fell in love with the idea. I was sure such a piercing must already exist and I wanted it. It sounded beautiful and wouldn't have the risk of harming the teeth like a normal labret. I asked a friend of mine who is an ... read more

Tried and True... Mostly

It seems to me that many of my modifications have been the cause of some duress, if not later some humorous afterthought. Throughout the lives of many of my piercings, events occur that either put them at jeopardy, cause me some sort of harm, or result in putting me in a bad position. For the most part, I can look back on these experiences and laugh. I have had my nostril pierced for probably a little over three years now. It was my first piercing that really went against my parents' wishes. Previously I had only had my ears and ... read more

The rise and fall of my anti eyebrow.

For the longest time Ive been facinated with the anti eyebrow piercing.I saw it while going through my piercers portfolio and fell in love. It even looked amazing bloody and bruised. growing up in a piercing shop I grew up getting pierced at 12 starting with my lip. My dad was good friends with the owner of the shop, and it became my favorite place to hang out, all the artists were used to seeing me hanging out there once and a while and I because close with many of them. I finally decided to get an anti eyebrow piercing ... read more

My Inverted Nipple Piercing Experience

Ever since my breasts started to develop I knew that they weren't 'right'. When I compared myself to other girls and women their breasts and nipples were vastly different to mine. Their nipples were more pronounced than mine. I just figured that I was destined to be weird, much to my dismay inverted nipples are quite common not to mention normal with normal functioning. At this time my breasts were still growing but I somewhat knew that I was always going to be the 'freak' and that there was little I could actually do. After I gained my first intimate ... read more

Nape Dermal Anchors

I have had very long standing plans to get the nape of my neck pierced. But I had put it off for quite a while. Initially all I knew about was surface piercings and I was worried about their chance of rejection. Then one day I was trolling the internet and came across dermal anchors. Amazed by this I picked up my phone to schedule my appointment with the one piercer I trusted to pierce me. Little did I know that he quietly moved to New Zeeland. Well now what do I do? Time to start the piercer hunt, after ... read more
