"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

Sternum Microdermals, Lovely and Painful

I jumped into an obsession with piercing feet first, pretty early on, after stumbling across BME. My first was a monroe the day after my fifteenth birthday, done by Sailor Cher at Fountain of Youth Tattoo in St. Augustine, FL. She went on to do my nostril and eyebrow. Eventually, they had to be taken out or were lost, and while I was sad, I felt like I needed to leave them out for the direction my life was taking. I didn't have the money to re-do them, had already had a disastrous self-piercing incident, and my look was slowly ... read more

My lovely little tragus.

Today I turned 16. This morning I took my learners permit test, (100%, high fives for me) handed in school work (MUCH overdue I might add,) took my doggie for a long walk, and ultimately completed a whole lot of things I've been meaning to, but haven't found the time to do. All of these things are irrelevant however; as the most exiting thing I did today was get my tragus pierced. A brief piercing history, my ears are pierced 7 times (now) all over the shop, couple up the top, double lobes, my navel is pierced, and I've retired ... read more

My Long Awaited Nostril Piercing =^.^=

Before I start, I shouldn't have to mention that my parents (especially my Dad) are totally against the whole idea of piercings and tattoos. Aren't all parents? Teehee. So I finally got around to ringing up the most popular piercing studio in our area to book my nose piercing. Unfortunately, their piercer was sick that day, so I booked it for the following weekend, and yeah, I was pretty bummed out :( I didn't really want to wait that long, so I rang Divine, a shop that I often visited which was in The Hutt, close to where the other ... read more

my corset piercing

So I'm a piercing junkie, always been. For some reason, ever since I was a tiny tot, I've just been fascinated with body art. I started getting pierced when I was 15. My navel was my first piercing ever. After that, I just got hooked. I've pierced just about everything; my septum, sternum, lip, monroe, smiley, ears, hips, collar bones- you name it, I probably had it pierced at some point. So when I was about 17, I decided I wanted a corset piercing. On my right side to be exact, around my rib area. My idea was that it ... read more

Shopping around is always good!

The other day I went out in search of a good shop to get my inner conch punched here locally in Humboldt, California. I stopped at four shops around town and out of town, none of which would do the piercing because it is illegal here in California to use punch's. So I continued my search and finally found Primal Decor, the best shop in town. Here I ended up deciding on getting two anti-eyebrows since the punch was out of the question. The shop was clean, well organized, a member of the APP, and all sterilization techniques were well ... 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 first nostril piercing!! [Of two

I've had my septum pierced for about 9 months, and I've been thinking of getting something else. I never thought I'd get a nose ring because they're pretty common, but I thought if i got it done and put an actual ring through it then it'd be a bit different. Until I looked up some pics, where I came across the *brilliant* concept of a double nostril piercing - two on one side. And so it began... My brother said he'd pay for it for Christmas, but we'd get it done now. So we planned to go today (Sunday) at ... read more

Life and death of my cleavage microdermal

Several months ago, I went to my shop of choice for a tattoo, and was asked if I would be willing to participate in a class where a guest piercer would come in, and teach the current piercer at the shop how to do microdermals. I was all for it, since I had been contemplating getting my cleavage done but was unsure. For the opportunity to help out a friend I agreed. The plan was that the guest piercer, Steve, would do the first one, and then Jimbo, the resident shop piercer would attempt the second one. The time came ... read more
