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 lip scalpelling

Well it first started when I saw some of these large labrets and I decided I wanted one so bad. I researched it for ages I finally decided to have it scalpelled so it wouldn't take long instead of stretching it and so on. I spoke to a guy I'd heard about called Quentin Inglis from Kalima. He's a really nice guy and I spoke to him at least once a week for a long time and got to know him and he got to know me. I asked loads of things then finally he said come down and see ... 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

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

My New Piercing

About 3 years ago, I knew I had a love for piercings. At 13, I loved tattoos, 14, scarification, implants.. awesome.. At 15, now, I would love to be part of the body modification world. Looking through pictures on "Extreme Body Mods" I came across a picture of a smiley, Instantly, I was in love. I loved the idea of it being near enough hidden, unless you smile or laugh.. Your little secret piercing.. I was desperate for one. Having had 3 piercing kits before, I rathered someone with more experience than a 15 year old to do it. Begging ... read more

my first true love - homemade spiderbites!

The first time I saw snakebites I was about thirteen (I think!!) and at first I thought "ewww, gross that must have been so painful!" but as I started to see more and more of them I began to think "hmmm, maybe they're not so bad, maybe they're cool" then I actually began to really like them. However I always wanted original piercings and snakebites (where I live anyway) were really common. So when I was doing more research on the internet and I came across spiderbites I instantly fell in love with them. I am only fifteen so I ... read more

My Chelsea Smile

I've been into body mods for quite some time now. When I was eight, I went with my (much) older sister to get her first tattoo, and I was hooked. After much begging and bargaining, my mother allowed me to get my first piercing when I was 15. I got an off center labret, which was not very common at the time. Over the past several years, everyone I see has a lip piercing, and I got frustrated. I hate seeing someone with the same things as me, whether it's a T-shirt or a piercing. After several tattoos and other ... 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

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
