After years of wanting of. She finally agreed!

So when I was 10 years old I saw my first belly button ring. I immediately told my mom I wanted one, and she immediately turned it down. My mother is more of a conservative person, she thinks that a second hole ear piercing it rebellious, but I was 10 what did I know. The thought always stayed with me however, and when I would bring it up every once in a while, but never really bugged my mom about it. Her word was like law to me when I was younger. Not so much these days, however. At 13, ... read more

Bad Labret experience

Well, I've been wanting to get a labret for years now and finally did it but first I'll tell you how we found the tattoo shop we went to- My fiancé and I heard of this shop the day before Halloween was having $13 dollar piercings. We were very skeptical of this place at first. So we said what the heck we'll go and if it's a hole in the wall, we'll leave. So my fiancé's friend was waiting for a couple of hours when we got there. First impression, It was a nice and clean shop! I'm not new ... 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

Oh My, What Is That On Your Chest!?

My name is Joshua, and I am a fifteen-year-old male interested in body modification. Ever since this current year, I have always witnessed and/or seen a number of people have surface piercings done on them. This temporarily got me jealous, for I did not have any surface piercings. Then again, pain did not sound too good. There's this girl named Jenny, Jenny has Clavicle surface piercings. I have never seen anything more beautiful and attractive as her Clavicle piercings. My mind kept screaming "Get them! Get them! You know you want them!" I was very well jealous of her because ... read more

Confronting my fear (inner conch experience)

The past few months have been difficult on me. Ever since I wrote openly about my needle phobia, I've received many encouraging responses. No, you're not crazy. You do need to overcome this, though. It was a common, honest, and truthful response to my rant which would prove to weigh on me for the next few months. After all, I couldn't expect to live the rest of my life and never fall ill or get into an accident which would require medical attention, unless of course my life were to be extremely short and whatever were to kill me would ... read more

An Industrial Sized Horror Story... With a Happy Ending

Ever since I was 13/14ish, I've always wanted an industrial. I mostly saw them on girls, but every time I saw one on a guy, I stared in awe cause they just looked so friggen awesome! I was young at the time though, and didn't want to go and get one since I figured my mom wouldn't be happy with the idea. The idea of me getting one eventually died down over a few years. When I was 17, the summer came and I saw a guy with an industrial. It re-sparked my interest for one. I figured I was ... read more

Septum piercing-bad, but not as bad as they say!

Recently after I had my inverse navel pierced, I really wanted another piercing. I already had five but I am addicted! I decided that I would like to have septum piercing because they look so good on females, and I felt that my nose was one of my strongest features. After looking at pictures and reading experiences on this lovely website, I knew a septum piercing is what I wanted. I had always heard that septum piercings were very painful. In fact, they are supposedly the most painful facial piercing. After watching videos on YouTube of the piercings being done ... read more

DIY Lip Piercing

About a month ago, I was in my room researching every story, tip, warning, etc. about lip piercings that you could imagine! I was also thinking about how I have wanted one for so long and how my parents would NEVER let me get it done because I already had my nose pierced. Then I decided that I knew enough about the piercing to do it myself without it getting infected and that I was going to get my lip pierced no matter what. I didn't have a proper needle or lip piercing, just a regular nose piercing and sewing ... read more

I'm getting my clavicle pierced. Does that sound dirty?

It's Thanksgiving and everyones talking about shopping on Black Friday. Ugh, I hate Black Friday with a passion - everything is the same price it would be on a normal sale day! As everyone talked about shopping I was the one who threw in the air the idea of maybe getting a piercing I have been wanting to get for FOREVER now. I really didn't think I would go through with it. I didn't know any tattoo/piercing parlors around the area. Only ones were in Grand Rapids (about 30-45 minutes away) -- I really wasn't wanting to drive that far ... read more

Simple Earlobes, Right And Wrong

I've loved stretched ear lobes since the first time I saw them, it's so much more personal because of the patience it takes to get there, rather than seeing all the people who went to Claire's for their 18g. I decided to get my start and have them pierced. At first, I went on the recommendation of a friend to another studio in Calgary besides Tribal Expression. I had been to Tribal for my labret and loved the experience there, but it is pricey; this was my first wrong. If you're going to mod your body in any way, even ... read more
