An Inverse Navel Story

Little History:: My mother hates mods, as I'm sure I have said before. When I was 15, I wanted to get a navel piercing.. I told my bestie and she went to get it done so then she had one and there was me, obviously still wanting it. I went to a bootleg hair salon and gave them my student ID and got it done with some birthday money and five minutes later I came out with a slightly crooked diamond-balled barbell in my belly. Mom found out and ripped it out merely three days later and that was the ... read more

Industrial and Tragus Piercings

This past summer, I spent a few weeks in England visiting a friend. I had decided before I left that I would get an industrial piercing to commemorate the experience. On our long drive far out into the English countryside from Heathrow Airport, I told her my plans and she was thrilled. In fact, she said that she had been interested in getting her tragus pierced. I had never considered that piercing before, but it wasn't long before I couldn't imagine NOT getting it pierced. Two days later, we headed into Banbury and went down a few wrong roads before ... read more

My lovely vertical nipple experience!

I have been a huge fan of nipples piercings for ages. I just never got around to getting mine done, for a variety of different reasons. Well, my boyfriend and I broke up about 3 weeks ago; and I just got an IUD inserted so I'm on a permanent menstrual cycle for a while. In conclusion, I won't be having any sex for a while so I decided it was the perfect time to get them done! Plus, I had the extra cash thanks to tax season. I did a lot of research on what kind of positioning I wanted. ... read more

Is this the start of a mid life crisis?

Well I did it, I'd been thinking about it for a long time, but I actually went ahead and got my nipples pierced! This is something I had been thinking about doing for many years now if I'm honest, but I think I was worried what other people might think of me as it would seem completely out of character to most of my friends, but now I'm in my 30's I think I've finally reached the point where I don't care any more quite honestly! I did this for me, not anyone else. Though it was probably aided by ... read more

Sternum piercing

After moving to a new city, with my new boyfriend, to start a new job I had absolutely no experience in, I was feeling very much alone. Not knowing anyone here, I spent quite a few of my free hours browsing the internet or playing ps3 or 360 games.It was on one of my days off when I was looking at a section called unusual piercings on a random website that I saw the sternum piercing. I fell in love: it was so beautiful, so sexy, and compliments a woman's frame perfectly! I researched on bme and other sites, to ... read more

Adventure for Venoms

Ever since I was 13 years old I had always wanted my tongue pierced. My mum was completely against it (until I turned 18,) so she let me get anything else. I got my belly button and my lip done (twice,) to suppress the need. I could not help but become obsessed with the idea, though it dimmed over time seeing how common it was and it was just another piercing just like belly buttons. My brother's former girlfriend ended up getting venoms, the only other person I've ever seen with them; then that was IT, I knew that was ... read more

Earlobe Reconstruction

Day One: I travelled over to Leeds from Sheffield to meet Luke Iley from The Oddfellows Tattoo Collective. The Procedure Met in a nicely styled waiting area we discussed the procedure before he went to set up. I was really pleased with the work area, slightly uncomfortable about sharing a room with one of the tattooists who was also seeing a client but I was quickly put at ease. After about 15 minutes of marking up, careful consideration and an involved conversation about the techniques employed I felt totally confident as I lay down. The hemostats, as always were the ... read more

Lovely Nipple Piercing. What's all the fuss about?

For some reason getting the thought of a nipple piercing gave me a lump in my throat you know a sickly nervous feeling in your stomach? A lot of the stories on this and various other sites had gave me the impression that it is indeed the most painful piercing you can get, but it can't be that bad right? So far I've gotten seven piercings, nose, navel, tragus, helix, rook and conch; thankfully they have all healed fine so eventually I began craving a new piercing, one of my friends recently had her right nipple pierced but had to ... read more

My navel scalpelling experience.

Two days ago, I bit the bullet and went under the knife. I originally had my navel pierced at 14g and had stretched to 8g before realizing that I hated the placement. After retiring it, I sought out someone to re-do the piercing in a better spot and at my goal size. I kept all options available, from piercing with a needle, to punching, to scalpelling - which was ultimately the choice I went with. To keep things relatively anonymous, I'll stick to using first initials of names only. I arrived at the studio just as it opened at noon, ... read more

Birthday Button

I remember back in seventh grade, a girl in my art class named Savannah got her bellybutton pierced. I remember being a bit shocked, somewhat disgusted, at the little girl with the red gem glistening from her midriff. I remember being intrigued. I wanted one. I pictured myself with a little silver and purple bar, showing it off like Savannah, gleefully posing in swimsuits with my bling, since I was into that back then. However, the thoughts quickly faded into the background as school became more intense, and friends more reluctant to encourage my shenanigans. A few years later, I ... read more
