Now my chest is even shinier! Sternum microdermal...

I've been thinking about getting a microdermal for a while, particularly after my two failed nape piercings. I did the research, looked at pictures, read experiences, and then figured out my finances -- yeah, it wasn't going to happen. I forgot about it for a while. It was around a year before I thought about it again. After finishing a novel for National Novel Writing Month and finishing a term at school, I decided a reward was in order -- despite Christmas, my finances had an extra $100 I could live without, so I stopped by Strange City after my ... read more

so thats what I forgot to tell you dad...

I have double lobe piercings and a nose piercing. All were gunned. However before you judge me I would like to say I didnt know any better until recently. All piercings are fine though. But you are not here to read about my lack of knowledge on piercing equiptment though, are you? So I'll get to my lip piercing. For my fifteenth birthday I was supposed to get a scaffold/industrial piercing but when the day came my mother changed her mind. She loathes all piercings ecxept the run-of-the-mill lobe piercings that most probably most people have done in Claires accessories ... read more

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

My septum

I woke up with that urge. People who have at least one form of body modification will know what i'm talking about, you know that desire to get something, to feel the adrenaline rush of getting a new piercing or tattoo once again, well, I was no stranger to that feeling. Having already had angel bites, side labret, tragus, smiley, nose, 10mm ear lobes and countless other ear piercings, there was only one more thing I wanted. A septum. I had wanted it for a while now by my parents hated it and so did my friends. "Ew, it looks ... read more

My favorite piercing-my tongue!

I, like many other users on this site, feel that I am addicted to piercings. The nerves and excitement about a new piercing can possibly only be topped by a new tattoo, but at the time I got my tongue pierced a tattoo was out of the question and at 17, I'm surprised I got away with that much. Anyway, about 4 years ago I continued my long fight to get my tongue pierced and told my friends that when I got to class it would be done, so that weekend my mom, brother, and I made a trip to ... read more

My ongoing stretching case

For the benefit of American readers, I have included the Gauge as well as the MMs. A while back, I started going to Camden at the weekends. If you haven't heard of it, then google it, wikipedia it, whatever. Since then, I have been getting more and more interested in low-level body modification (EG piercings, tattoos etc). I am also REALLY into heavy metal culture, but I have created my own style, which incorporates a stretched ear. Most of my friends dig it, but people in my school ,being the narrow minded, chavvy scum of the earth they are, have ... read more

My journey from an 18G through a 0G!!!

Hello All! Well my journey into ear stretching started a few months ago! I have always wanted to, but never got around to. My reasoning behind it is that it looks cool, the culture roots behind it, and I love the jewelry plain and simple. I decided to go to Claires at a local mall, got gunned, I wouldn't recommend the gun when it comes to initial ear piercing (go to a tattoo shop). I let the piercing heal for 6 weeks then sized up to an 18G (1mm) ring. That stretch was easy, not a big difference at all. ... read more

Lobe Scalpelling to Correct Placement

A little over a month ago, my ears were scalpelled from the 9mm range to 11mm by John Kid of The Piercing Lounge in Madison, WI. I had been stretching my ears for almost four years at that point, largely without the help of professional piercers (hey kids at home, remember that nine times out of ten, it's better to stretch your own ears!). I had been at my original goal size of 00g (wearing mostly 9-9.5mm plugs) for about two years, but eventually I decided to bite the bullet and move up to 1/2" for two reasons: 1. My ... read more

Do I dare? I Daith.

Those of you with good memories may remember that two months ago I wrote up my experience getting my snug pierced. I mention this not because I want to give you a detailed follow up right now, but because I fear comparisons between the two experiences are inevitable. So please bear with me. A quick recap: Prior to all this cartilage piercing business I have gotten my nose and belly button pierced and my lobes have two piercings. I also have two failed attempts at a helix and a failed attempt at a third set of holes in the earlobe. ... read more

my new favorite piercing!

I had wanted a medusa/philtrum piercing for a couple of months. I was hesitant at first because I really like my mouth, especially the cupid's bow, and I really didn't want it to be off-center or have it swell up like crazy. I also wanted it to be perfectly dainty. I had a very particular image of how it would look--teeny and adorable. [I know, I sound crazy, but it's a piercing in the middle of your face! It should be perfect!] I also couldn't decide between getting a medusa and a madonna, but after the consultation of several friends, ... read more
