My beautiful Industrial

Hi, I've always wanted my industrial but never had the guts, which is weird because I have many other piercings including my nipples...I just have a weird pain thing for ear piercing. I don't know how I came up with the idea that it would hurt more than that but I did. Ha-ha So after long hours of searching on BME and considering which type of industrial I wanted and where I wanted it, I found the one which I thought would suit me the most. And that ended up to be from the top of my ear near my ... read more

Most painful beautiful thing I have

I had wanted a piercing for several weeks, and had been reading about tongue piercings on BME.I had decided that I was going to get one. I told my boyfriend and my best friend what I had planned on doing. They both didn't like the idea. After they had both told me that they thought it would be a bad idea and that I wouldn't like it I ended up deciding that I would get an Industrial instead. I had always loved the way they looked so I decided that's what I wanted. So Monday night my boyfriend and I ... read more

Mon Daith

Il y a un mois... aprés mure réflexion... j'ai décidé de me faire piercer un ROOK. Cela s'était trés trés bien passé. Je suis donc retourner hier chez la mème perceuse pour me faire piercer l'autre oreille mais cette fois ci le Daith. J'arrive donc chez Mystik. La perceuse de l'autre jour est derrière le comptoir. Elle me demande donc où je veux me faire piercer. Je lui explique. Elle me dit qu'elle va préparer le tout et qu'elle revient. Elle me demande si je veux une barre, je répond que oui. Elle s'en va. J'attend et j'entend déjà le ... read more

5m Ear Cartilage Dermal Punch

I've been looking into getting a dermal punch in the upper cartalidge of my ear for years now, this is probably the 'heaviest' body mod I've gotten to date and I have to admit the idea of getting a hole punched in me was a bit scary! One of the main reasons I've waited so long to get this done is just that I didn't know anywhere that did this procedure and never quite got the bottle to ask. When I started looking into it in more detail I was shocked by how widely spread and common this procedure is, ... read more

Forward Helix

After I got my bridge pierced, I was ready to get another piercing almost right away, however, I knew it had to be somewhere either not noticeable, or on my ears, because seeing my dad's reaction to a facial piercing made me think that maybe I shouldn't get anymore for a little while. So, after searching on BME for a while, I was contemplating what I was going to get. I had thoughts on a snug, a tragus, a rook, and a vertical tragus, but in the end I kind of spontaneously decided that I wanted my daith pierced (yeah, ... read more

“Fast” stretching to 1⁄2 - some useful experience for the amateur

I've been all my life attracted to piercings, but since I was studying at a private high school, had no piercings for a long time. So, when I decided to get my ears stretched, immediately after I graduated from high school, I had to stretch from scratch, and, let me tell you: this is quite scary. First of all, you face the unknown, and no matter how much informed you are - and you REALLY should get some information – you cannot be prepared for this. Or, at least, I wasn't. Then, it is something you have to be really ... read more


My conch piercing was my first major piercing. Prior to it, I had had my earlobes done three times each, had a septum piercing, and a ribcage tattoo. Needless to say I had no idea what to expect. I wanted to get both conches done at the same time until someone reminded me of the fact that I would have great difficulty sleeping. PRE-PIERCING First came the convincing of the parents. I am old enough to get pierced without their permission, but after doing that once (septum) I decided that it would probably be better to ask first. Anyways, they ... read more

5mm (4gauge) cartilage stretch

Before I get into this, hindsight is an amazing thing! I was debating between a punch and stretching, I decided on the latter for the strange and simple reason of "if I get it punched its over and done with and I will be bored afterwards!" stupid reasoning but it worked for me at the time. I pierced my ear myself, I knew the risks but didn't have £25 to spend out on a new piercing – so I grabbed an old stud earring and pretty much just shoved it through my cartilage, very limited pain but lots of blood, ... read more

Rook is right!

I think I was around 15 or 16 years old when I got my rook done. I'm 21 years old now, so I honestly can't remember the exact age, but I decided to write about my experience now, because it is probably still my favourite piercing! In high school, I went through a brief piercing phase, with my ears. I only had 2 earlobe piercings on each ear, and getting my cartilage done was a big deal! But the first time I saw rook and tragus piercings, I thought they were so cute! I had never really seen them before, ... read more

My Tragus - Lucky Number 7

Alright so when I got my nose pierced at the age of fifteen I happened to have more piercings then all of my friends. Which was saying something since I had my first lobes down the year before my nose. Now then I had gotten my cartlidge pierced (With a gun, I know a major no-no.. But it turned out ok) and I had did my own second lobes by myself over the summer. (I know, another no-no but they came out alright. Guess I'm lucky) So by the time school swung around, I was aching for another piercing. Now ... read more
