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

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

boyfriend saliva, just what a new piercing needs.

Now, I'm not one of those people that has always wanted a belly button ring. I used to think they were trashy, the equivalent of a tramp stamp, until me and my boyfriend were talking about piercings. He really wanted his lip done (one year later, and he still wants it), and I realized that I'm blessed with a flat tummy, why not accentuate it? At this time I had a bunch of self done ear piercings (4 lobes in each ear, and two cartilage-OW!) and my nose stud, so I didn't have anything to compare the pain of a ... read more

Love the look - hated the healing

I had been fascinated by body modifications since college, but was hesitant to actually go through with it. My only two piercings, previously, were in my ears. My mom had gotten me pierced at four years old in some random chair at the entrance to JC Penney, I think. It wasn't the most pleasant memory as that piercing gun made some pretty scary noise to my little ears. Since my childhood, though, I had met some pretty interesting people with some even more interesting modifications. I had high school friends with wrist tattoos and eyebrow piercings, college friends with nipple ... read more

Sixteen 18g surface piercings, one corset.

I like to jump into scary new things and then deal with the consequences. This generally works out in my favor. Sometimes, I get in over my head; sometimes, it's a successful new experience that I'm proud to have gone through. A sixteen-point corset, done for a photo shoot, was fortunately the latter. I had traveled to Kansas City, Missouri this November 2009 to shoot and hang out with awesome photographers and models. One of the models is a most kick-ass professional piercer: Heather LeStabbityDeath, who pierces at Lasting Impressions in Des Moines, Iowa. I had idly said that in ... read more

Venomous Venoms. =)

====== Before Hand ======== Okay, so I had always had my eye on a central tongue piercing, ever since i was about 16. As a guy though, my parents weren't really up for it, they didn't like piercings in general but told me that when I was 18 I could do what I liked. Success. So I waited until I was 18, and threw the idea at them again. I got the "you live under our roof, you live under our rules". Since I was still living with them, and was dependant on them for my college fees, I figured ... read more

Lucky 13

Here I am, with a shitfaced grin, a bottle of 91% isopropyl alcohol, a piercing needle, and an eyebrow ring. No, I am not drunk, the shitfaced grin is just in anticipation of what I am about to do. I have brushed my teeth, drank a bunch of water, eaten, washed my whole face with rubbing alcohol, put the kid I was babysitting to bed, and sat here reading about the supraorbital nerve (the nerve that is the reason that countless web pages and people and such say don't pierce your eyebrow unless you're a trained professional, cause if you ... read more

That eBay seller sure sucks (my ear stretching journey)

It first started around July 2009, when two of my friends and I went with one other of our friends to get his ear pierced. Obviously, I was persuaded to do it along with him. We went to a Vietnamese salon in the AAA mall near the shadier part of Brampton. Yes, I now know I'm not supposed to, but I got it done with a gun. I suggest nobody else do the same. I had always thought about stretching my ears, as they've intrigued me since I saw my sister get them when she was in grade eight. I ... read more

Micro-Dermal Implant

I recently had a micro-dermal implanted on my sternum, it was done with a 14g needle, it was explained to me that some people use dermal punches and how that process goes, then it was explained to me how using the needle goes. The process with the needle seemed more appealing to me. I opted for the needle because the procedure seemed to cause little trauma and as little cutting as possible. We spent a decent amount of time marking it out around ten to fifteen minutes, making sure that it was centered and looked good with my tattoos. After ... read more
