I Don't Want to See It! [Snug]

On Valentine's Day of 2009, I got my "real" piercing...a forward helix in my left ear. I had a little bit of trouble with it, but overall, I absolutely adore it and it didn't take long for the fabled "piercing addiction" to attack and make me want more. But what to get? I really wanted something that not a lot of people have, and I didn't want to stray from my ears (my family is really against all other piercings and already kind of frown down upon the total of three piercings I now have in each ear). Eventually, I ... read more

My first REAL Cartilage Experiance!

Well, although I have been working in this industry for 2 years now, this is the first time I have actually experienced for myself a professional ear-cartilage piercing, let alone a dermal punch in my OWN skin! I'm currently a piercing apprentice at DeLuxe Custom Tattoos and Body Piercings in North Bay, ON. One thing we like to do when its slow at the shop, once all the cleaning has been done and the customers have been served, is to talk about the tattoos / piercings / mods we would like to have done ourselves or would like to do ... read more

Two Industrials? At the same time? You're crazy.

Two Industrials? At the same time? You ARE crazy. Piercing date: 22 Sept 2009 I decided a while ago (Chrismas time 08 ish) that I was going to get industrials done on both ears... at the same time. Everyone I talked to about my idea that did not have piercings thought I was crazy ("I thought that cartilage piercings hurt the most/ you are not going to get any sleep while they're healing/ why would you do that"). Anyone that had an industrial or multiple other piercings already said that it would take awhile to heal, but why not do ... read more

My Horizontal Lobes

I was always wanting an ear piercing but not just any ear piercing: I wanted something I had never seen before. That came in the form of a horizontal lobe. I was browsing galleries upon galleries of pictures until I see it. I instantly wanted it but was put off due the shape of my ear, it seemed that all the pictures had lobes that never touched their face ( and mine did ) so I basically dismissed the idea. Time went by and I still hadn't got a new piercing that I was happy with. I was really getting ... read more

My Industrial, My First Piercing

I grew up in a pretty liberal home. My mother and I were very open, I never really had a curfew and I was allowed to get a tattoo at the age of 16 provided it wasn’t in a visible area. My mother had my ear lobes pierced when I was a few months old with a gun at one of those horrible little mall kiosks so I figured that I would be allowed to get a few more piercings with no objections. I was wrong. My mother seemed to think that tattoos were acceptable but piercings weirded her out. ... read more

Finally, I got my inner conch

For about 5 or 6 years I had always wanted my nose pierced. I only had one hole in each ear, and they were done when I was a baby. I am terrible with shots at the doctor, so needless to say I was TERRIFIED at the idea of getting my nose pierced. I read stories on here and I knew people who had it done, so I knew it wasnt that bad. But piercings were an uncharted territory for me. I had no idea what to expect. One day my sister came home with a nape piercing, and my ... read more

I Love Ears: A Tragus Tale

I have always liked ears and the variety of piercings that people get in them. So, it was no surprise when the tragus caught my eye. Two of my friends have their tragii pierced and a girl that just transferred from our school posted pictures of her fresh tragus adorned with the cutest heart shaped stud. I decided that I wanted my tragus pierced too and started to do my research. I even put together a PowerPoint to ask my mom, who told me years ago after my second lobe piercings "no more ear piercings". I pulled out all the ... read more

A Needle and Thread DIY

Allow me to start by saying that I do strongly believe that you should see professionals for any type of body modification. DIY piercings can be done, and properly, but there a far greater number of risks. I consider myself very fortunate to have been without complication, but I wouldn’t pierce anything other than my ears by myself. Well, I had quit my job, and have no funds for, well, anything. I was seriously considering going to World Domination, which is the closest, cheapest place to go (they have a pretty bad rep, but its more for creepiness than uncleanliness; ... read more

Auricle Piercing That Won't Be the Last

Location: Wellington N., Sherbrooke, Quebec Artist: Charlie Date: April 23, 2010 I had been toying with the idea of piercing my left conch for nearly two years. I has an unexpected afternoon off from work at the theatre (I'm a technician at my university) and planned a trip to the mall to get some new shoes. I had a nice leisurely lunch at home. I lost track of time at one point and I realized that I was going to miss the next bus if I didn't hurry out the door. I ran to the bus stop to see the ... read more

My tragus piercing!

So I'll start off saying that I've been really interested in body modification, especially piercings, though I only had 5 myself (4 on my lobes, one on my cartilage, all gunned, bad I know). Because my parents are pretty old fashion when it comes to piercings, just the standard earlobes. One day, I casually brought up a tragus piercing to my mum, and to my surprise, she immediately said yes! I asked my dad, who was skeptical, but eventually agreed. Before I had even asked my parents, I had begun looking for a shop that pierce it for me, which ... read more
