My New Vertical Tragus

After getting my scaffold in February I really wanted a piercing that not many people had, having looked on the internet and various piercing I came across the 'Vertical Tragus' and instantly fell in love with it! I looked up as much information for it as I could find (which weren't much) I decided I was going to get it done. I was pretty much really scared of getting this but I wasn't going to let that stop me! It was the 29th of September and it was the day I was going to get my vertical tragus after waiting ... read more

My Industrial Experience!

Back in august i started to really consider getting an industrial piercing. For about a month i was doing research all over the web. I really wanted to get all of the details so I knew what I was getting myself into. In almost every story i read the person talked about how painful this piercing was and how much pain they were in after they got it. After reading all of this I had second thoughts, I really didn't know if I could handle the pain. But the more I looked at pictures, the more I really wanted the ... read more

My Ear Lobe Stretching Journey.

I can not remember the exact date when I first got my ear lobes pierced, although I do remembering being a sophomore in High School and having a 12 inch mo-hawk. I did not know much about body modification at the time. In fact I didn't even have a single piercing. To be honest I am not sure where I got the idea, I guess it just seemed like the thing to do. I had initial plans of stretching my ears to a 4 gauge. At the time I was not of legal age so I had to ask my ... read more

Inner Conch Dermal Punches—2g

The first time I can remember seeing a large-gauge inner conch piercing was on the piercer who did my lobes about four months ago. It was a red glass plug, probably 4g, and my only thought was that it must have hurt to get a piercing right there. My lobes were my first piercings, so the conches were to be my second. Fast forward to two days ago: I arrive at the piercing parlor with a trusty friend, who was nice enough to drive us two hours to get there since no local shop did dermal punching. Alex was the ... read more

An urge for a helix piercing...

I wanted to get a helix piercing since I was in high school...about 14 years ago. It never happened however, because I was afraid of the pain despite constantly sketching characters with 2 or 3 helix piercings in each ear. So far I have 2 regular piercings in one ear, 3 in the other and my navel pierced. After I had my navel done (it really was not a bad experience but I was not prepared for the 'shock' of getting that pierced) I swore I would never get anything else pierced again! But they do say piercing is an ... read more

Stretching my ears to 30mm.

Let me just start off with why I stretched my ears. I wish I could say that the reason I started stretching was because I felt I needed stretched ears to enhance my appearance and complete my body, but honestly I just saw some people with them and thought they looked pretty cool and thought I would do it to be a bit different from my friends. It was not until very recently that I started becoming more and more interested in the whole body modification culture and really started to understand the whole concept. I can gladly say that ... read more

The life death and rebirth of my industrial

I was sort of a late bloomer in terms of piercing among my friends, most of whom started getting pierced and quickly ruining their lobes in around 2005. After a bad breakup, at the beginning of my senior year in high school, I decided to get one of my lobes pierced. And the obsession began, I got my other lobe, started slowly stretching them, got a couple of other random cartilage piercings, and finally my industrial. I first decided to get my industrial pierced over 2 years ago, in the initial piercing craze I went through mentioned earlier. I first ... read more

So much I've learned in life

My journey starts with modifying about 2 years ago. At that time I was dealing with some heavy depression and was very impulsive. My friends mostly new me (being stereotypical) as the chill fellow who would just ride out his life. I hated the fact that this is how people saw me because I have, my entire life, tried to find a moment to break out of the mold that people had set around me. One of my coping methods at the time was to completely consume myself within a hobby or a lifestyle. Before this story takes place I ... read more

Snug as a Bug in a Rug

It had been a while since I had gotten a piercing. My last piercing was my nose piercing and that happened six years ago. I hadn't been thinking much about it until my friend, G., asked me to be moral support for a lip piercing. Which, you know, got me to thinking. I had been planning to get another tattoo as my next decoration, but the shop had all these samples of really neat places to get your ear pierced. G. herself had a rook that I thought was so beautiful and delicate. I was too chicken to get a ... read more

My Stretching Horror Story

This is my story on my lobe stretching process; it began about a year ago. Probably a little bit less, but you know. I had had my ears pierced for quite sometime; I had done them myself as I do with all my other stuff. But I'm good at it, and get legit needles to do it, and sterilize everything so don't be a stupid and go do it yourself, because chances are you aren't as adapt at it, as someone nearby in a Professional setting. But, I was browsing the internet and researching different piercings I could do when ... read more
