Third time is a charm!

I've been into getting body modifications for several years now, beginning with my right cartilage and moving into three tattoos, two septum piercings, a multitude of other ear piercings, nostril, lip, and hips. I decided to get my nipples done after seeing a friend's nipple piercings a couple of months ago and falling in love with them. I had read several experiences on BMEzine and had accepted the fact that it was probably going to be my most painful piercing, but I wanted to get it done so badly! About a month or so ago I decided to go to ... read more

My Journey to 1/2" !

In October of 2008, I headed downtown one day with a friend to get my septum pierced. While there, before paying for my fresh piercing, I noticed each employee had stretched earlobes. I had seen and heard of this before, but never until then had I been so attracted to the idea. When I got home, I did some e-research on the concept of stretching earlobes ad became quite stretch-savvy on the matter. I figured if I stretched my first set of holes, I could always use my second and third sets for regular earrings. Still, I was a bit ... read more

My Long Awaited Spider Bites

I have always had a fascination in piercing, ever since I seen my first piercing. I loved it I know one day I'd have many of them. Ever since I was little my dad has been trying to get my mom to let me get my ears pierced. But, my mom has never liked piercing. The only piercing she liked was an ear piercing. But, only on girls. She always said, "Not for guys." So, one day my 6th grade year I went up to my mom and asked her if I could get my ears pierced. Well it took ... read more

Septum Piercing Profesionally Done- Finally!

I've had my septum pierced a twice before by friends, not the smartest thing to do. Both times, I didn't come out with a septum piercing. I recently turned 18 in September so I thought there isn't really anything I would like more on my birthday than to get my cute septum piercing professionally done. Finally. Years ago I first saw the septum piercing online and fell in love. It's perfect, I can have my own facial piercing and have the lovely ability to flip it up and hide it. Always a plus if you have a conservative family or ... read more

Lucky Thirteen

So last Sunday i woke up to the sight of the sun shining through the blinds and my boyfriend's awesome new tattoo (he assures me his chest is now 'finished' although if tattoos are anything like piercings i doubt he ever will be 'finished'). It felt like a new-piercing day for sure, don't ask me how I know, you just do, don't you....? Anyway, first, we had to find a good studio I felt I could trust. Previously I had always used the tried and tested method of nipping across to Ground Control to pay Tails a visit, but since ... read more

My amazing medusaaa!

So I had known for a year or so I wanted some kind of oral piercing, and I knew my mom wouldn't let me get my tongue pierced, so I had to choose a lip piercing. At first, I was really into just a classic off-center piercing, on the right side. After I thought about it more, I decided I wanted a bit of a classier, less edgy location. I thought about it and became dead-set on getting a monroe. They are so pretty and classy, yet still edgy. After a couple of months of knowing I wanted a monroe, ... read more

Nostril Piercing (My very first facial piercing!)

This is a story of my first ever facial piercing: my left nostril. In my family, all piercings are frowned upon. My parents saw my multiple piercings on my ears (AFTER I had already turned 18, mind you) and said, "Okay, you're done." But I definitely was not. I got my nipples pierced (which is definitely a great story for a later time) a little while after my ear-piercing run, and then I wanted another one. I should preface my story with this: I got my dad's approval on my nostril piercing (which is a MIRACLE), because I knew for ... read more

Ear Stretching, ahoy!

I initially had my ears pierced in 5th grade, doubles in 6th, and cartilage in 9th. Unfortunately, my cartilage was done with a gun at Claire's(I know, I know. Don't start yapping.) and it never really healed properly. It was extremely sensitive all the time and my ear just didn't look good with any earring in it. So, after a long time of 'just dealing with it,' I finally took it out. Well, now I thought my ears were just boring, so I got the bright idea to start stretching my left ear (the one that had the cartilage piercing). ... read more

"Does it go all the way through?"

I fell in love with body modification when I was around fourteen.Before that, I never quite understood why anyone would want piercings or tattoos.I was also terribly afraid of needles.I didn't even get my ears pierced until I was in sixth grade.For those reasons, I never thought I would have anything else pierced.That's changed, because I now have eight holes, including my first lobe piercings.And yes, those were done with a gun at Walmart.In my defense, I didn't know that guns weren't the best piercing tools, at the time.Anyways, let's get to the story of my first piercing that was ... read more

Nose Goes

About three months ago, I started working at Artifact Tattoo in Santa Clarita CA. The shop had just been bought up by new owners, and they were more than happy to let me join their team as the piercing apprentice. I was obviously stoked for the offer, but after a while, I began to feel like I should (seeing as I hadn't a visible piercing) start to look the part. I started to accumulate piercing after piercing (including Industrial, septum, bellybutton, nipples, and vertical hood), and was able to handle all of them with the greatest of ease (including taking ... read more
