My lobe story. From nothing to 44mm in a year.

I've stretched my ears off and on three times since I was fourteen. I'm now nineteen. The reason that it was 3 times, instead of one solid slow consistent stretch with tape was mostly due to age. Being stupid, fourteen, and using cheap silicone tunnels. I just wish that someone would have told me how to correctly stretch, before I ripped my lobes multiple times. So, I let them heal, and as one closed completely, the other lobe had so much scar tissue after a 5/8 to 3/4 silicone dead stretch, no more damage could be done. A little over ... 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

Cheeky

I am currently an apprentice at Ink Kandy Tattoo in Hollywood, CA, Chris Saint is my mentor. I had been wanting my cheeks pierced for a few months, I had asked Chris if he would want to do them for me, he agreed. I was extremely hesitant about the idea, but he said whenever I want them to let him know and we will do it. So a few weeks had passed and I came out and said "okay let's do it!" I set up for the procedure, obviously because I'm his apprentice, I had never seen them be done ... read more

Shaking, bleeding and crying in the bathroom stall.

One day, I was on the phone with a close friend. She had been talking about piercing her smiley and her web, and also piercing her lip again. Of course, being irrational as she is, she took it upon herself to pierce her bottom lip, and to pierce her smiley. I had been researching piercings for quite a while, but never quite made up my mind about what I wanted. You see, living with strict European parents can be quite a challenge if you want to get multiple facial piercings. They would never let me do even my nose, at ... read more

Father-daughter piercing experience

Every once in a while, the voice of quality and of alternative culture triumphs over that of mass-culture garbage. This is one of those stories. For me, body piercing and tattooing are things that when done right make the world a prettier, more playful place. And I just put my money where my mouth is. My daughter turned ten this fall. A number of her friends have had their ears pierced and she had been asking to get hers done. Her mother said okay and from some of the girls' parents they got the names of a couple of mall ... 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

Piercing my Nostril myself

Hi, I'm 15 years old and I've always been really interested in body piercing. I had three ear lobe piercings done professionally, and I had my ear cartilage piercing done about 4 months ago professionally. My parents thought the cartilage piercing was the last piercing I would ever get. That wasn't exactly my intention as far as they knew. The next piercing I was hoping to get was my nostril. I always thought of it to be cute, and beautiful, not trashy like my parents think. I knew that if I asked my parents to take me to get it ... read more

Do you ever plan your piercings?

To start, I'm completely addicted to piercings. As soon as my mother let me get my second lobes pierced, I got hooked. A year later I was sporting two impromptu and dangerous (done with a gun due to my lack of better judgement) cartilage piercings and had just made the decision to pierce my tragus. By 'made the decision,' I mean that my work had just paid me and I was standing outside the shop. I was slightly nervous as I'd never been pierced anywhere but a pharmacy and with anything besides a piercing gun, however the piercer Michelle assured ... read more

Tongue Web

It was the beginning of the school year. In the summer I had gotten two new piercings. My nose, and my top ear. I walked into my school and felt original, since no one else had these piercings. But I was missing something. I wanted another piercing. I heard that these girls in my grade were piercing their tongue webs. I had never heard of that piercing, so I decided to look it up on BME. When I saw it, I fell in love. I researched the piercing more, and looked up how to do it at home. Then I ... read more

The Wonderful World of my Tongue Piercing!

Hi, hello! Today I'm going to be talking(or writing if you want to get technical) about my latest piercing. My tongue.

Way back when, the tongue piercing had caught my eye. I watched ... read more
