It all stems from big ears...

don't suppose I could match your stories of people who cut off their balls, nor would I try, though I can see that there could be circumstances where people would want to do that. My experiences are rather different, however. First the visible stuff (that I let everyone see) Since I was a kid I have been fixated on my ears. First because they are really big, and second because they stick out quite a lot. Actually although kids would tease me over this, I quite like them, and just before I went to sleep at night I would pull ... read more

Labret @ Atomic Garden

Anxious. That would be the feeling. As my mom dropped my brother, Ethan, and I (Damon Kalar, a 19-year-old from Minnesota) off on University Way, or "The Ave," I could feeling my limbs shaking in anxiousness. After two and a half hours of looking for a piercing place, we decided to look in the phone book. Atomic Garden on University Way. That'll do. As we found it, and went upstairs, second-thoughts and nerves started to set in. "Hey Eeeth, let's go get some coffee." After coffee, and a smoke I decided to go in. My piercer, Gregory LaRouxe, was very ... read more

10ga to 2ga Ear Piercing

developed the habit a few years ago of getting pierced every time I went abroad to somewhere interesting. So while in San Francisco last summer (96) I decided it was time to get piercings that would actually be visible in everyday life. So I decided to take the plunge and start on stretching my lobes, something I'd wanted to do for ages. The problem was that I had practically no earlobes, my ears just continued around from the end of the cartilage to the neck - leaving only a few mm between the edge of my ear and the inter-tragal ... read more

How do you pick your nose? (stretching my septum)

Long before I knew anything about body piercing, I always said that if I were to get anything other than my ears pierced, I would get a "bull ring." When I began to learn more about such things, I decided that I was going to do it. About two and a half years ago, I got my first non-ear pierce, my septum. I got it pierced with a 14ga 1/2" SSS circular barbell. As I learned more and more, I discovered stretching. I never thought that I would want to do it myself, but I liked the look of large ... read more

Nipple Repiercing Experince

Back in June, I had both of my nipples pierced at 14 gauge, 1/2 inch circular barbells. Less than a week later, I went to jail, had to take them out, and couldn't get the left one back in. I've been lopsided since then. Yesterday -- maybe since it was because it was my birfday, maybe because I was feeling lonley, who knows -- I went to Perforations. Part of me wanted to get repierced, part of me just wanted to stretch the left one to 12 gauge. After a lot of waivering and a few cigarettes, I decided to ... read more

Better Late Than Never

suspect that many readers of this site and of rec.arts.bodyart either are or have been a college student. I am certainly no exception. Until I went to university, my experience of tattoos and piercing had been limited to ex-navy guys with blurry anchors on their forearm and studs in their ears. I had no wish to look like an assistant at a 3-year olds finger painting lesson and by the late 80s, ear studs on guys were hardly the mark of a rebel. (Being a rebel is especially difficult with understanding parents) When I started University, I simultaneously discovered both ... read more

Deep Muscle Arm Piercing

ello, my name is David and I live in Sweden. If you don't know anything about Sweden then all you need to know it that it is a small beautiful and cold country. Well, the thing I want to tell you (and the members of BME) is what happend to me two years ago. I went out for a walk in one of Stockholms many nice parks where I got mugged. I didn't't have any money so probably this robber got pissed of and as he left he shot me in the back. Or not exactly in the back but ... read more

The Tongue...

I started having my body pierced at the beginning of 1997. First I had a frenum done... that was a trip because I had never even thought about having it done..or any piercing for that matter. I was just sitting at home at around 6:00pm and thought "hmm, I think I want my dick pierced". I told my wife, she was a bit astonished... but by 7:30, Bear, the piercer at Forbidden Fruit had shanked me. (BTW, I highly recommend Bear, he was the guy on the cover of Body Play just a bit ago with the rack). Then, about ... read more

WHY?

>Why? Possibly the most frequent question asked of body modifiers. We all have our own answers ranging from the filpant to the metaphysical, we answer depending on who we are speaking to and the mood we are in. What struck me having read Bme for a while was not only were the answers (the true ones if there are such things) unique to each of us but they are unique to each modification as well. So here are the reasons I had my peircings done. It all started a couple of years ago, I was earning my living as a ... read more

YAY!! MARNIE FINALLY GOT HER TONGUE PIERCED!

begged and begged, and finally they gave in. My dad finally agreed to take me to get my tongue pierced. I'm 16 and they wont pierce minors in Arizona without an adult, and you cannot be under 16 to get pierced at HTC. I got my tongue pierced at HTC of Tempe on October 10th 1997. I did a lot of research on tongue piercing and other piercings, i do suggest this, because i wasn't nervous at all even when i was sitting in the chair. I first went in and signed all the papers and the woman picked out ... read more
