A Professional's Piercings

rofessional's Piercings A Professional's Piercings As a 31 year old professional analyst, piercing goes against all of the norms that people come to expect of me. Most professionals are viewed as stuffy, three piece suit, white collar kind of guys. While that may be the appearance from the outside, no one really knows what is hiding under the clothes. That is where I derive a lot of pleasure from my piercings. No one knows but me. Under the uniform, I'm really an adventurous man with metal piercing his body. I wrestled with the idea of getting a piercing for quite ... read more

Cartilage Piercing Experience

tilage Piercing Experience Cartilage Piercing Experience Part 1 After reading BME and BME/Extreme for quite some time now and enjoying them so much, I thought I'd contribute what some may think is a routine experience. To me it wasn't. It is now almost 5 months after my first tatoo, my first venture into body mods besides the common double pierced lobes. My daughter and I both decided we wanted a cartilage pierce and would do it together, sort of as a "mother-daughter thing". She is 15 and is confined to a wheelchair due to cerebral palsy so I often check ... read more

Nipple Piercing at Medusa's Circle

cing at Medusa's Circle Nipple Piercing at Medusa's Circle (Please pardon the informality. I was debating whether to be more formal or write like I usually do in newsgroups/email. Felt easier writing as I usually do for this medium :). The described procedure might be out of order - I'm writing it as thoughs occur to me.) Welp, finally went and did it. Got my nipple pierced yesterday (Apr 20). The piercer was Pier Zambrano at Medusa's Circle; 3268 N Clark, Chicago, IL; 312-935-5950. He had done 2 of my earlobe pierces and I highly recommend him. Great bedside manner! ... read more

Various motivations for lip sewing:

>Various motivations for lip sewing: Religious/spiritual sacrifice/devotion primarily practiced among ascetic holy men in India (Sadhus) and in this case the sutures are relatively permanent (i.e. if the sutures rot over time, they may be replaced). Confrontational Performance (i.e. see Artaud's essay on the subject or read Hakim Bey's Poetic Terrorism) For example, the lip sewing that Daemon did on Mikey in 1993 was a social commentary on the issue of censorship (specifically: the police raid and confiscation of art and subsequent charge of pornography of the artist) and how we are being silenced by the policies of our right-wing ... read more

Mr. Normal Suburbia

Normal Suburbia My experience into piercing, beyond the average ear gun procedures, is pretty limited. I had my left ear done twice about two years ago. I thought two holes in my ear was pretty cool and about as far as "Mr. Normal Suburbia" would go, especially at 40 plus. But for some reason I was always looking for a heavier, more substantial look. And those dainty little earrings sold in department and jewelry stores just didn't do it. Well after many of those thicker "looking" earrings I decided to call the local piercing store. He explained to me that ... read more

Nipple @ Precision

ple @ Precision Nipple piercing story About 4 months ago I decided to get my nipples pierced, I had been thinking about it for quite a while beforehand and decided I wanted to get it done. In the months preceding, I had acquired a taste for nipple stimulation and heard that piercing your nipples would increase their sensitivity. I have been into S&M four a little over a year now and am still experimenting with new things (i.e. body Piercing). My girlfriend seemed to like the idea so I decided to go ahead with it. I asked around about piercing ... read more

A Brief Non-Linear Piercing History

rief Non-Linear Piercing History A Brief Non-Linear Piercing History The purpose of this list is to dispel certain popular myths and misinformation circulated about different body piercings and to clarify terms wherever possible. My list focuses on piercings that appear in the ethnographic or historical literature. Recent piercings like the Madison, Christina, Cleopatra, Madonna, Nasion and others have not been included. Please note that many of the references supplied by "the father of modern piercing" Doug Malloy (a.k.a. Richard Symington) cannot be verified and should be considered folklore. If you know of any historical or ethnographic references that are not ... read more

Navel Piercing Experience

el Piercing Experience It's been two years since I had my navel pierced, but the memory hasn't faded any, and I know that it never will. I still haven't decided whether I prefer spontaneous events to planned ones, but this was probably the most spontaneous thing I've ever done. I'd had an interest in doing something drastic, purely for shock value. I was only sixteen, so when my parents said no to the idea of a nose ring, I seriously had to consider their opinion. The idea of a belly-button ring hadn't really appealed that much to me, there isn't ... read more

Cutting at Modern American BodyArts

I have something to share with you, many people wonder why I do certain things.... It ranges everywhere from why did I get a tattoo, what would make me want to pierce my dick, and who in the world would let someone cut into them with a scalpel.... well I first want to clarify the most recent question I was asked.... "It's bad enough that you do all this sick shit to yourself... but why the hell did you write about it and let everyone in the world know about it?" I pondered that one for a minute... kind of ... read more

My nipple stretching experience

le>My nipple stretching experience I originally had my nipple pierced in November of 1996. It was a very intense experience - as painful as my reading other peoples' accounts on BME had led me to believe. But the pain was only momentary and it settled to a dull aching which lasted for a few hours. I was very happy with this new addition to my body - the look of a piece of metal going through my left nipple was (and still is) an amazing sight and one I don't believe I will ever tire of looking at. But one ... read more
