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

Helix Pierce Experience

ix Pierce Experience Helix Pierce Experience Ever since having my first ever piercing about a month ago (my tongue), I've been thinking what to get done next. I've heard tons of horror stories about the guy who did my tongue since having it so I decided not to go there again (Renegades in Dundee, Scotland). I'd been told that there was a really experienced piercer elsewhere in Dundee so I thought I'd check it out. The shop is basically a tattoo shop (as most are in Britain) called Graeme's Tattoo Studio. I'd been there once before to get a tattoo, ... read more

Keloid excision experience

oid excision experience Keloid excision experience Hi everybody... In keeping up with my tradition of just talking about my nasty keloids, I just wanted to let everybody know that I had the excised yesterday at my plastic surgeon. For those who need a little refreshing, or who are relatively new to r.a.b. (welcome!), I had developed a large keloid on my earlobe from a gun piercing when I was 14. A few years later, it had developed into a full-on keloid (the piercing never really healed), with the keloid on the front really red and itchy, with the keloid on ... read more

Biker Nipple

er Nipple I used to have access but I guess the rules change (understandably)so here is my experience on paper to serve as a submission. I have always wanted to get my nipple done. I am a Harley rider and frequent the 'Biker" scene and thought it (nipple piercing) looked cool. I turned 31 last June (1996) and fighured I would treat myself to the pierce. I made and appointment at "Experience the Beauty" in wintery Winnipeg. A guy from work and his wife wanted to come and watch as the wife was thinking about getting hers done and wanted ... 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

Australian navel piercing experience

tralian navel piercing experience For around ten months I had been fascinated with bodyarts and especially piercing. I've found it quite sensual to the point of being erotic, and had wanted to get my navel pierced for almost as long! So in the last few weeks I'd researched via the 'net about hygeine, aftercare etc, learning to understand the procedures and what to expect. But today I finally gained the courage to go to the piercing studio and "just look" at the jewellery, maybe talk to the piercer. Strangely (!) after 4 minutes staring at the glass showcase I'd chosen ... read more

Couple's nipple + outer labia experience

ple's nipple + outer labia experience Hi, I am a 19 year old college student taking a social working couse. I stumbled upon this page and just love the stuf you have up.. of course I would love to have a membership for this site... All I have to offer at the present is what I have been through in regards to mine and my husbands piercings. Two summers ago we were walking around a local town, we're pretty much out in the boonies, so we were amazed that we found a little piercing and tatoo parlour. Nothing like that ... 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

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
