Two years in the planning, over in twenty minutes.

Ever since I can remember, I've been fascinated with tattoos. I've wanted one since before I started high school, but knew it was a no go, at least until I turned eighteen. My father died when I was eight months old. Therefore I have no memories of him. I do, however, have several items of his clothing and people have told me things about him, et cetera. He used to sing the song Forever Young by Bob Dylan to me, when getting me to sleep or whilst bathing me. My grandparents had the lyrics printed and framed for a gift ... read more

Getting my nose pierced on both sides!

This is my first story so bear with me, but I am really excited! I will do my best to give advice and share my story with you wonderful people! Recently, I got my both sides of my nosed pierced. Now this is not my first body mod experience. I got both nipples and an industrial in both ears when I was 18. Now that I have recently turned 19, I was itching for some more piercing. So I did some looking on BME and I kept coming across people who have both sides of their nose pierced. As a ... read more

my exciting, fun filled, nipple piercing adventure.

Wednesday 9/9/09. Epic day. I had finally decided on getting my nipples pierced. Only after I had picked the Wednesday, after I was in the shop signing the form for my piercings did I realize it was 9/9/09. How exciting. Any who, I had decided to get my nipples pierced on a partial whim of teenage freedom of expression. A breakthrough for my adult hood as I had recently turned 18 and was in college. So I could do that sort of thing without asking my mom. Chances are she wouldn't have agreed. So yay for the legal age of ... read more

My 2g lobe journey

Around the end of June, I pierced my ears in my bathroom with a 14g piercing needle followed by 14g circular barbells. I left those in for about 8-10 weeks until I came across some 10g steel plugs that I liked. I wanted to stretch to a 00g to begin with but the longer I thought about it, I decided I wasn't going to stretch, until I found those 10g steel plugs. I ordered them, a 12g steel taper, 12g captive bead rings, and a 10g steel taper. I wasn't going to stretch right away, not knowing much about it, ... read more

My lower back surface piercing

I love piercing's! I recently decided to get a surface piercing. I decided to get my lower back pierced and my belly button. I had been looking on this web site, bmezine.com and saw that you could get anything pierced that you can pinch basically. The back piercing looked fun and cute so I wanted it! I went to Virginia beach ink in Va beach Va. My friend Jane Rae told me that they were having piercings for sale for only 10 dollars. That included the jewelry and everything. The piercers name is "Shimp". I got my back then my ... read more

So it goes.

It's been two years since I got my first tattoo. My recollection at this point is a little hazy, but I'll put together what I can. It was April 2007, and I'd been wanting a tattoo, but I had no idea *what*. When the news came through that Kurt Vonnegut had died, I knew what it would be -- Vonnegut was my favourite author all through high school and beyond, and Slaughterhouse-Five has always held a very special place in my heart. I opted for the phrase "So it goes" -- as a tribute to Vonnegut and to that book ... read more

DIY septum piercing

So, I had been wanting to get my septum pierced for a while. I always thought they looked edgier than nostril piercings with the added bonus of being able to easily hide them. I'm a nurse so easy hideability is essential for any body modifications that I choose to undertake. My nostril piercing was a big hassle having to constantly change it to a clear one or take it out when I was working. I wanted a piercing that was further outside the norm than most people go for, one that had the flexibility to wear a variety of different ... read more

Love my tragus!

Last week I decided to get my tragus pierced. I work in an office, where my nose ring was acceptable, but an eyebrow or lip piercing wouldn't be. The tragus seemed like a classier piercing than most, and my boss was ok with it. My grandma (who has plenty of ear piercings, her navel and a few tattoos) asked what it was, so I showed her on my ear and pulled up a few pictures online. She said she wanted to get it done too, so we made plans for the following weekend. I spent hours on Google and YouTube ... read more

My beautiful nape piercing.

I should start this off with saying I currently have twenty piercings, and have had over forty if you count everything that has been ripped out, taken out, and/or re-pierced. I'm not quite sure what made me decide that I wanted a nape piercing, but I've always seemed to love getting piercings that aren't common, and ones that get comments such as, "WOW, how does that work?!" Anyway, one morning I woke up and decided I wanted to get my nape pierced. I never even considered it before that day. I have long hair and figured it would be constantly ... read more

so thats what I forgot to tell you dad...

I have double lobe piercings and a nose piercing. All were gunned. However before you judge me I would like to say I didnt know any better until recently. All piercings are fine though. But you are not here to read about my lack of knowledge on piercing equiptment though, are you? So I'll get to my lip piercing. For my fifteenth birthday I was supposed to get a scaffold/industrial piercing but when the day came my mother changed her mind. She loathes all piercings ecxept the run-of-the-mill lobe piercings that most probably most people have done in Claires accessories ... read more
