Spinal Piercing Experience

ITLE>Spinal Piercing Experience spinal piercing experience by Brian Chambers i discovered the spinal piercing while browsing through the body modification e-zine. i was attracted by the way it elegantly crossed the spine, punctuating the arch of the lower back and, especially with the double pierce, suggesting the delicate structure of the spine itself. i also liked the subtlety of embedding the jewelry deep within the tissue of the back, peeking out like buried treasure in the ocean floor. the jewelry itself consists of two 12 gauge barbells, constructed specifically for this kind of piercing from surgical stainless steel. my piercer, ... read more

From: "Ogre" ([email protected]) Newsgroups: rec.arts.bodyart Date: 30 Aug 1996 14:57:59 GMT It has been storming everyday for about a week here. Which is o.k. with me, the rain is sort of like nature's own symphony and is very soothing. And then yesterday when I awoke with the sun shining bright and the birds singing, I knew that this was the perfect day for a piercing. I got up showered, had some breakfast, and gathered all the piercing FAQs that I have printed and read all again ... read more

Nipple @ Nothing Shocking

ple @ Nothing Shocking I had always wanted to or at least thought about piercing my nipple, but I never could really get the guts to go and do it. I had heard that a nipple piercing was one of the more painful ones, and I had actually tried it with a safety pin when I was in high school (I know that wasn't the smartest thing but I was a young punker), so I knew it would hurt. However, the idea of the pain is what eventually made me do it. I had been burned by a particular girl ... read more

Large Upper Ear Piercing Done Using A Dermal Punch

Ear Piercing Done Using A Dermal Punch Large Upper Ear Piercing Done Using A Dermal Punch Stretching lobes is currently very popular, and is a very easy thing to do. However, stretching the cartilage in the upper ear for large holes is nearly impossible and would leave a very deformed ear, often due to keloiding. To get nice large gauge piercings through upper ear cartilage a good way is to use a dermal punch, which is essentially a circular razor blade (like a really good hole-punch) which can easily remove a circle of tissue. It should be noted that when ... read more

BME BOD MOD SQUICK

BOD MOD SQUICK Pat Fish's inadvertant piercing Seems like the stories behind medical events are never quite as dramatic as we might wish. There I was, up on an antique stepstool I inherited from my Grandmother, putting lettuce in a fishtank in my tattoo studio. Next thing I knew, a misstep had propelled me to the cement floor and I was an industrial statistic with a bone shattered into 20 pieces. The two inches of radius next to the wrist bones were visible in the x-rays as a mass of shards, and I was fortunate indeed to have access to ... read more

Switching to the role of the piercer

tching to the role of the piercer My ex-boyfriend was rather unadorned and unhappy with his condition. For quite some time he had wanted piercings but was unable to get them because he was a minor and his mother would not consent. So, lacking much of an alternative, he turned to me. I was planning a trip to Atlanta and he asked me to return with a piercing needle and jewelry so that i could pierce his earlobes. I came back prepared to pierce when he finished performing in the community play (it would be rather difficult to portray an ... read more
