My very nervous scaffold!!

Around the beginning of summer, I was standing with some friends in the social space of our school, chatting about piercing. I had been really wanting a piercing for a long time now. My parents aren't as bad as most. Well, my dad is pretty strict, but my mum is rather liberal. Unfortunately when it comes to piercings, she has her limits. I had been wanting snakebites for about 3 years, but, in typical parental fashion, both parents objected, giving me the whole 'while you live under my roof' lecture. Looks like I was out of luck until I was ... read more

My very swollen and very painful snug piercing

I decided I wanted my snug pierced when I was 15 years old and I couldn't wait to turn 16 to get it done without parent consent. I checked different body piercing places and decided to go for 'Tribal voice' I went in there and I talked to a piercer to see if I could get it done, she said yes and told me she was going to put a 8mm bar in my ear and off I went to the studio. I was so scared to get it done and the pain was horrible, when the plastic tube was ... read more

My near-snug experience

Since I was 16, I've been getting various ear piercings. No one in my family or immediate circle of friends has more than two piercings or one tattoo, so I began to get curious about body mod in high school. Over the last two or so years I have gotten seven different ear piercings, my latest being my right snug. I got my snug done two weeks ago, when I went with a friend to get her lip pierced--a new piercing and tattoo parlor close to campus was running a special and I had heard good things about the place. ... read more

My Epiq [Unfinished] Stretching Adventure

Perhaps I should provide some background information on myself. I'm thirteen, and I have nine piercings six lobe piercings, an industrial, a navel, and an eyebrow and I'm planning on getting more. For the longest time, I hated stretched ears. What was the point? You couldn't wear regular earrings. It disgusted me. One day, as I was browsing Hot Topic, I saw a woman working there with stretched ears. They usually disgusted me but hers was different. She had adorable black flesh tunnels in them that was studded with rhinestones. It sparkled and glittered and just that moment, I realized ... read more

The nose knows!

Well I had my nostril pierced once before, the piercing itself went great...everything after did not. To make a long story very short so we can get to the good stuff I got a huge bulge of hypertrophic scar tissue...nasty business and no amount of soaking, cleaning, dabbing, LITHA did anything to help so bye bye nostril piercing. Fast forward a year and I decided to get my nostril pierced again only this time on the right hand side. I was visiting with my mom close to Christmas and she (as awesome as she is) gave me the cash to ... read more

22-8g Earlobe Stretching

Before I go very far I want to say..Don't do this! Ok now that I got that over with this is my ear lobe stretching experience. I'd like to start by saying that I am 34, I'm also a woman and married heh. I strarted out with a normal sized earring, 22-18g depending on who you ask about that, and ended up with 8g plugs. So I was visiting my mom for Christmas and having some deep relationship problems with someone I left back home. For some reason piercings or new body mods make me feel calm when things are ... read more

Night of the Vertical Nip

Well, I'm back again with another short tale! of my ever so hole-some adventures! I got my nipple pierced on the night of September 29th, my first piercing as a university student. I really wanted something within my first month of being a freshman and experiencing the freedom of being 18 and in university. That, and after removing my bridge (improper placement failed me) I felt a flesh void that needed a serious filling. So, let me start off with my whereabouts. I go to a school in Ottawa, ON and my residence is a mere 20-ish minutes away via ... read more

A wild tribal tongue piercing appears...

This is the lovely tale of how and why I decided to stick a "tribal hole" in my tongue... I was eighteen and had been into piercings since a young age. Though I came from a very traditional Middle Eastern family my mother allowed me to get my second ear piercings and at seventeen I had acquired an industrial piercing and a nose piercing. I was in love with my industrial, it looked great and was a fun piercing to have in general. My nose was a different story. I loved the idea of a nose piercing. My mom had ... read more

Helix Piercing

I had my helix pierced around two months ago, and I guess it was almost predetermined by my previous tragus piercing.  While in most cases the act, ritual, process, whatever you want to call it, of undergoing the piercing has been symbolic (the pain of change, control over my own physicality, expressing/releasing/manifesting a moment of or period of emotional pain, etc) the placement has always been purely asthetic and serves as nothing more or less than a function of how I want myself to look in the long run.  Being a male I have never wanted symmetry of the piercings ... read more

Rook Piercing

In the months following my tragus piercing, I noticed that it was much more widespread (movie stars, highschool students, the waiter at Applebee's) than when I'd originally got the idea in my head 2 or 3 years ago, and sought out something at least somewhat more unique.  Quickly my eyes were drawn to the rook piercing and over the following weeks I began reading people's experiences with this area.  Most stories fell into 3 categories; minimal to moderate pain; hurts pretty damn bad; and absolutely excruciating with some stating it felt worse than having their nipples done.  Furthermore, many of those in ... read more
