stretching my ears from 18g to 8g in one sitting

I've always been fond of slight body mods, by this I mean not too extravagant piercings and stretched ears (I like tattoos but on other people, not me). I like the fact that you can take them off without them leaving huge marks on your body. I've had my left helix pierced thrice (by myself) and my right ear head pierced at a shop near my town and was looking for something else to have done on me. I read lots of reviews on BME to help me make up my mind. I decided that I wouldn't get my face ... read more

New Tragus Piercing

Yesterday I got my right tragus pierced. I worked all day and shortly after I got home I asked my husband to accompany me to the local tattoo/piercing studio for moral support and to drive me home afterwards, just in case I was feeling woozy. We arrived at Saint Tattoo and I asked to speak with their piercer, Bryan. I inquired about having the piercing done with a curved barbell or a labret stud instead of a ring and Bryan told me it would be fine to do with either. He had time then, so he got a copy of ... read more

my stretching experience.

I wasn't one of those lucky girls that get their ears pierced a couple of weeks after birth. In fact, I had to wait twelve long years just to know what having pretty earrings felt like. I got my ear lobes pierced when I was 12, several days after my birthday. My parents took me to an accessory store in the mall where they pierced ears. I remember picking out the earrings, and listening to the aftercare instructions diligently I remember sitting on the chair and holding my dad's hand, I remember the smell of alcohol and the feeling of ... read more

My (now retired) 4g Lobes

To start out with, I'll tell you a bit about myself. My name is Kaley, and I'm 15. I wasn't always interested in body modifications, it's only been a few years since I've really been into the whole deal. I currently have 6 piercings, all of which are on my lobes. unfortunately, all of them have been done with a gun. My first pair I got when I was five, my second pair when I was twelve, and my third this last summer. They've all healed nicely :). I remember first seeing stretched earlobes when I was around 6, and ... read more

My New Tragus

Yesterday, I got my tragus pierced, which was my first piercing that wasn't my ear lobes. I haven't had my ear lobes pierced since I was twelve, so I was pretty nervous. I was actually most nervous about the popping noise I've heard some people hear. My friend and I were both getting ours done, and she made me go first. I'm actually glad she did, because if I had heard her reaction before I got mine done, I might have backed out. I naturally tremble a little bit, and I was worried that it would cause him to mess ... read more

His first...

Ever since I was little, I was fascinated with piercings and tattoos. My sister was much older than me and had many piercings and had started getting tattoos so I suppose that is where my interested stemmed from. My mother was never very big into moding your body in any way, so even when she let me get my 14G cartilage piercing, she was still disapproving. She wouldn't even allow me to get my belly button pierced, but ended up doing so when I was 17 anyhow. By the time I had my industrial done, I had only had two ... read more

Gauging skip. Damn it hurts.

When I was smaller, my dad always asked if I wanted my ear pierced. I had seen my favorite power ranger, Tommy, with a little loop through his ear (I was around 5 at this point) but I thought it would hurt. I mean, it's a piece of metal being shoved forcefully through an area not meant to have a hole. How much more painful does it have to sound? I did once, got one ear pierced, but the lady, using a gun, mind you, screwed it all up and made it go through at an angle resembling a slash ... read more

Forward Helix Trouble!

So first of all I'll explain my piercing addiction. When I was six, I begged my mother to let me get my lobes pierced and she said I could get them done when I was 18. Six weeks of begging later and I had two beautiful green studs in my ears, courtesy of the local pharmacy and a piercing gun. My next earring didn't come until about five years later when I decided I wanted a second hole but only on my right ear, and, after months more of begging I got it done. The next piercing I got was ... read more

- Done already ?

- I've always wanted to get both a vertical and horizontal piercing in one of my ears so I decided to get the horizontal done first. At the time I was in Sweden visiting my family and having 2 friends over from the UK and one of them also wanted to get pierced! I have a list of piercings I want to have done, but it didn't take me long to pick the one I decided to get done! I have mostly been recently focusing on getting hidden piercings, but now I felt like getting one that shows all the ... read more

Hardships of life and stretching to 7/8ths in 6months.

Once upon a time I was a young lad growing up in a seaming less normal world, where things out of the ordinary stunned me, but made me smile at the same time. Growing up as a teenager in this society I never had the luxury of seeing stretched lobes up close and personal. The closest I came was the always amazing videos about different world cultures. To many these videos were filled with taboo, but I embraced them with respect for their own culture differences, and own interpretation of bodily acceptance. I finally began seeing more people with gauges ... read more
