My Personal Hand Experiences

Hand Experiences My Hand Experiences My Personal Hand Web Experience THE PIERCING PROCESS First the area was marked, and I moved my hand around to try and find the deepest possible comfortable placement without hitting the muscle. Then a small flashlight was used to check for blood vessels, and the area was cleaned. The a clamp was applied and the holes lined up. The piercing was done in 14ga, and didn't hurt that much, but it did sting a great deal. Then the jewellery was slid in - a straight 1/2" 14ga barbell, which probably is easier to deal with ... read more

Mehandi

ehandi Mehandi An Ancient Art For Modern Primitives By Michelle Delio My first passport to the wide, wonderful world of body art came in the form of a huge stack of back issues of "National Geographic" magazine. I immediately dove deeply into that yellow bordered stack and didn't surface again for a long, long time. My brothers, of course, used NatGeo as their introduction to the fascinating concept of naked breasts, while I was enraptured with the uninhibited way that the people pictured chose to decorate their bodies. The wonderful tribal scars of Africa, the tattooed Yakuzas of Japan, and ... read more

My Second Mhendi

Second Mhendi My Second Mhendi And I am finding alternative mediums that stain as the henna is most cumbersome to work with. The best thing I have found so far is sunless suntan lotion (ssl). I put it in a craft bottle with a tiny holed tip and use it that way. I have done my foot and ankle that way... but am not exactly sure how to explain the setting process... not sure if leaving it on does it or if squirting in in the design, then washing it off will do it. It's harder in a way since ... read more

Nipple @ Nothing Shocking

ple @ Nothing Shocking I had always wanted to or at least thought about piercing my nipple, but I never could really get the guts to go and do it. I had heard that a nipple piercing was one of the more painful ones, and I had actually tried it with a safety pin when I was in high school (I know that wasn't the smartest thing but I was a young punker), so I knew it would hurt. However, the idea of the pain is what eventually made me do it. I had been burned by a particular girl ... read more

Dry Ice Branding

Ice Branding What happened is, one night I had some dry ice on hand for other purposes, and I thought about how the BME FAQs didn't have much information on using dry ice for scarification. Well, I was kind of curious myself, and I thought I could spare a patch of skin for the sake of science - so I decided I'd just find out for myself! What I did was to pick a spot on the inside of my left calf, a spot selected less for aesthetics than for the fact that it was easy to see and work ... read more

Nipple piercing at Modern American BodyArts

cing at Modern American BodyArts Nipple piercing at Modern American BodyArts This is the story of my first piercing in in Brooklyn NY! For the past month I had the idea of getting my right nipple pierced, don't know why just something I wanted to do. I'd heard that it hurts like hell and I for one am not a person that can deal with pain (I pass out from getting my finger pricked for a blood test). I asked a friend of mine what the procedure was and she scared me a bit, all I could think was that ... read more

Spinal Piercing Experience

ITLE>Spinal Piercing Experience spinal piercing experience by Brian Chambers i discovered the spinal piercing while browsing through the body modification e-zine. i was attracted by the way it elegantly crossed the spine, punctuating the arch of the lower back and, especially with the double pierce, suggesting the delicate structure of the spine itself. i also liked the subtlety of embedding the jewelry deep within the tissue of the back, peeking out like buried treasure in the ocean floor. the jewelry itself consists of two 12 gauge barbells, constructed specifically for this kind of piercing from surgical stainless steel. my piercer, ... read more
