The rise and fall of my anti eyebrow.

For the longest time Ive been facinated with the anti eyebrow piercing.I saw it while going through my piercers portfolio and fell in love. It even looked amazing bloody and bruised. growing up in a piercing shop I grew up getting pierced at 12 starting with my lip. My dad was good friends with the owner of the shop, and it became my favorite place to hang out, all the artists were used to seeing me hanging out there once and a while and I because close with many of them. I finally decided to get an anti eyebrow piercing ... read more

"I'm here to help clean up the blood.."

Stretching has been a very long and painful journey for me, and for 7 years worth of work I only had these dinky little 3/4" lobes to show for it. When I decided to move forward from the size I'd been for over 2 years I realised two things: 1. My left ear was thinning at the bottom and 2. I had a blowout and some pretty good sized keloids on my right ear that I felt would make the process more difficult. My first priority was fixing the problems before going any bigger, so I went about looking for ... read more

Mi primer Surface

Hola, me llamo Jimena tengo 18 años y vivo en Colombia, quiero compartir mi experiencia con mi primer Surface. Hace ya mucho tiempo que he venido interesándome en las modificaciones corporales, cuando estaba en el colegio tuve algunos piercings muy populares entre los chicos de mi edad. El primero fue en la lengua, luego tuve dos mas en la punta de esta, unos cuantos mas en el interior de la boca, nada muy excepcional , le siguió el septum ,que en esa época no era algo muy común en las niñas (ya estaba cansada de perforaciones tan comunes) y hace ... read more

Septum Piercing (With Clamps, Painless)

I recently turned 18, and I decided it was about time I got a piercing for myself. I have my nostril and navel pierced, as well as my tragus, and previously had my lobes stretched to 5/8". My tragus and nostril were both pierced at Tan-tastic, the studio I went to for my septum piercing. It is clean and reputable. I asked Sharron, the piercer, how much the piercing would be, and viewed my jewelry options. The establishment doesn't pierce with retainers, as people have complained about them falling out overnight, causing the piercings to close up. I chose the ... read more

My gorgeous bridge

About two years ago I saw a girl on the internet with a bridge piercing. I was very fascinated as I had never seen one of these. At that time I was fourteen and my parents wouldn't let me have any piercing except for my lobes and helix. They told me I'd needed to wait until I was sixteen. It never popped into my head that I could have a bridge piercing myself, for almost a year. When I turned fifteen I begged for piercings but no, and everyday the answer was no. I started to draw dots on my ... read more

Second Time Is An Opal Charm

As a fifteen year old way back in the mid-1990s, I once spent a late night lying on the floor of my bedroom, shoving a sewing needle through the flap of skin above my navel. An hour of muttered curses and profuse sweating later, the needle ("sterilized, " naturally, with rubbing alcohol--oh the follies of pre-Internet youth) was finally through and a sterling silver flea market hoop earring was jammed through the hole. Extraordinary amounts of parental screaming, which admittedly I deserved--nobody try this at home--followed. It should surprise precisely nobody that this ill-educated DIY piercing rejected post-haste leaving me ... read more

I call it...Mystery Piercing!

About a month ago my dorm mate and I realized that very familiar sensation told us that we needed a new piercing. The last piercings I had gotten were my nape (R.I.P!) and my tragus on my right ear back in late March. Over six months later I knew I could handle another piercing, but what was now the question! After some research here on BME I fell in love with the daith. Oddly enough, Mena (my mate) had tried to convince me to get a daith back in July when I went to get my nape adjusted. The urge ... read more

On being the piercee AND the piercer

Note to readers: Although I did many of my own piercings, self piercing must be done with EXTREME CAUTION. Screwing up your own piercings is not fun. Also, I may have pierced my friend's nipples at home, but this is not something you should attempt unless you have had experience. I had watched many nipple piercings and had permission from the piercer I apprentice under to try a nipple piercing. I also had my notes from observing in the shop. I do recognize that it might not have been wise to pierce without supervision. I've been piercing various parts of ... read more

Finally Have an Eyebrow Piercing

First of all I would just like to say, I have wanted piercings since I was little because I just thought they looked cool. Practically every night I dreamt about tattoos and piercings, always believing I would never get them. My family is very, very strict. They aren't particularly religious, just dead set against piercings. I couldn't even mention liking piercings. Whenever my parents saw people with them, they just ranted about how bad they were. I even hated the fact that four-year-old children could get piercings and I was sixteen and couldn't! I got my tragus pierced spur-of-the-moment about ... read more

Self scarred hearts

From the first time I saw scarification on BME I really liked this type of modification. I have always liked the look and feel of scars, I think they can be very beautiful. However I didn't know if I would ever get any done personally and was very scared about the prospect of someone cutting me. After considering it for a while I decided I wanted to do scarification on myself. I would be much more comfortable cutting myself than having someone else do it because I have self harmed for quite a few years so I feel I know ... read more
