My Secret Nipples

I used to think that tattoos and piercings were disgusting. I was raised to think that way. My ears were gun-pierced when I was 9 months old, at the pediatrician's office. I went through a time where I didn't even want to wear earrings. Now I generally sport a stud with a chain on one side and a chained stud and earcuff on the other, much to the dislike of my parents. Soon, I hope to add at least a few more ear pierces. When I was 12 or so, my cousin went and got his tongue pierced, in three ... read more

Nipple Piercing by Ardvark of r.a.b.

fter frequenting rec.arts.bodyart for a while, I still had many questions about piecings, so looking for someone knowledgeable, I e-mailed Ardvark, the r.a.b. FAQ maintainer, and soon began e-mailing each other back and forth over the course of almost a year, and I credit her for a great majority of my piercing knowledge, however she still lived in VA at the time, and I was in WA, but I wanted someday to be pierced by her. When she gave me word she would be moving to the San Francisco area, I was thrilled! During my senior year in high school, ... read more

I have an appointment to have my nipple pierced?

"Hi! I have an appointment to have my nipple pierced?" I said brightly to the man standing behind the counter. He smiled welcomingly and asked if it would be my first. When I told him yes, he went into his speel of the health and feeding of a piercing, closing with proper cleaning. "We recommend you should use a cleaning agent. Do you have any Hiberclens?" He asked. "And are you allergic?" My research had not covered this and I stood there looking a little perplexed. I was armed with a lot of book knowledge and little else. Actually, nothing ... read more

Earlobe Stretching

I have played around with piercing my ears for many years and have had almost every portion pierced at one point or another. This was usually done somewhat temporarily as my preferred method was to just run another safety pin through wherever I felt like having a piercing at the time. Eventually I stopped wearing earrings for awhile because of my increasing involvement in physical activities which made them liabilities (karate, rugby, etc.). This resulted in all but the two oldest and most used holes (one in each lobe) closing up completely. Late in '96 I began to feel that ... read more

Always, ALWAYS research your piercing/tattoo parlour -- go in and talk with the artists there. Ask questions, even stupid ones.

My Nipple@Perforations

n the recent months I have undergone changes. My first piercing experience was at Perforations in Washington D.C. I had been thinking about getting my nipple pierced and one day I just said what the hell and went to Perforations by way of the Metro Rail. I arrived at Perforations and met with Jason. He talked to me in a very professional manner and proceeded to explain the Nipple Piercing. Once I picked out the Jewelry (A 5/8 12 Black Nobium Ring) I began filling out the paper work. Then all went really bad. They asked me for my Drivers ... read more

My experiments with self-piercing

>My experiments with self-piercing I have done extensive experimenting with self-piercing. I became interested in body piercing when I was 17. I believe it happened when I saw someone with a nose or navel ring, I don't exactly remember. I immediately wanted to try it, and knowing very little managed to pierce my belly button with a needle. Withing the course of two days, it got infected, because I did not properly clean or sterilize it. The infection was not serious, but it did scare me away for awhile. I was drawn back to it like an addiction, mostly for ... read more

My nipple experience, problems...

>My nipple experience, problems... A long long time ago, I had decided I wanted to have my nipples pierced, but it took me a few years until I was 1: of legal age to have it done, and 2: got enough courage up to actually go do it. I finally decided just to go ahead and do it, as I was itching for a new piercing, and it just seemed it was about time to get over the fear I had of it. I've been pierced before, but somehow this just seemed like some unconquerable fear. Fortunately, I've found an ... read more

My Septum and Ear Piercing Experience

>My Septum and Ear Piercing Experience From a very young age I have always been interested in body art, I always loved looking at people who had piercings or tattoos and wish so much that I could do that. Originally I had hoped and intended to get by tongue pierced, but do to several complications, namely my tongue web being too far forward, and my mother's stubbornness (I'm 17). So I opted to get my ears and septum pierced, I had always liked the look of a pierced septum and think that stretched ears are totally fuckin' awesome, I had ... read more

An Introduction to Pocketing

Human beings have been decorating, playing with, and experimenting on their bodies for the three million years we have existed. That's a hell of a lot of time; most of us cannot really even grasp just how much. Jesus walked the Earth a million seconds ago, just 2000 years; three million years is just over one hundred and forty-nine million, nine hundred and ninety-nine thousand, nine hundred and ninety-nine TIMES that. The point? With that much time to figure it out (and probably not a hell of a lot else to do for much of it), odds are there's not ... read more
