Lobe streaching done easily and mathematically.

st piercing was a simple earlobe job done with a gun by a former roommate who worked at Claire's Boutique. If I had known then what I know now, I would never have gone there, not even for earlobe piercing. Quickly I learned that an ear piercing stud and butterfly clip are about the nastiest thing you can have in your ear. I switched to a 14 gauge captive bead ring and have have used that one or a couple others with decorative beads in my ear since... Up until yesterday. I constantly pull and tug on my earring or ... read more

(Inner?) Helix pierce and loving it.

a bit of time after a failing tragus pierce I was debating on what I could possibly get in my ear that was still somewhat original and looked better than what I'd already had. I considered helix, daith, rook, and conch. Conch I decided I didn't like anymore, rook looked too crusty on one of my friends, and Sara (my piercer) explained that the daith was extremely painful, so I opted for the inner helix (I'm not sure if that's the right term, I've seen it used several ways, but it is located right above the tragus...) I'd already been ... read more

...and my tragus makes 8

her always told me that she thought getting your ears pierced was barbaric. That only fueled the fire and make me want my ears peirced even more. It took me a few years of whining adn begging to be good and do all my chores for her to relent and let me get my ears pierced. I got the regulation first peircing done at a mall with the piercing gun when I was 13. It was uneventful and healed quickly. My second was done on a really boring Friday with my sister and a needle from mom's sewing kit. The ... read more

Disasterous tragus.

visiting my dad in Buffalo, NY, and knowing my dad would let me get anything pierced I was debating either my tongue or my tragus (hey I was 13, that stuff was really cool then!) and I opted for my tragus since I was sort of afraid a tongue pierce would chip up my tooth enamel (my enamel is very weak anyway, although I later got my tongue pierced in two different places). We looked in the phonebook and took a look at places in the area. One was very dark and seedy looking, and didn't even ID so we ... read more

now where can i find a safety pin...

s the story of two self ear-piercings, completed rather inexpertedly my good self some months back. it all started around two months ago, when i got angry. gradual frustrations over the previous few weeks had left me, well, frustrated, and i needed to do something drastic. i'd been planning on getting some extra piercings in my right ear, to balance the two studs in the cartilage of my left ear (done with a gun... ah, me.) i believe i was sitting in science fuming to myself when i came up with the idea... so i mentioned it to a few ... read more

My rook that wasn't ment to be

had my Inner conch and Nipple pierced since September 24th now so I figured it was about time that I submitted the experienced although im going to do two separate stories for them. I went to the piercing studio around 11am expecting to have this female piercer only to find out that they let her go (only due to her work ethics, not her piercing ability). I filed out the usually paper work and payed for my rook and nipple to get pierced. I went to the studio excepting to get my rook pierced. I have wanted it done for ... read more

Single Simple Cart Piercing

ided one day that I would like to do something to be "different." I thought about a tatoo, but that was too much pain. Then I was think tounge piercing. I did research on it, and asked my mom. She said it was out of the question. Feeling bummed, I was looking on this site about other piercings. I decided to appraoch my mom with ear cartilage. She said sure, as long as I could pay for it. Well, I had some money stored away that she didn't know about. I got, and went to the mall with my friend. ... read more

lobe and cartillage peircings

my ears, i've got 3 lobe peircings in my right, and 3 lobes and 1 cartillage in my left, none of which hurt me in the slightest bit. i was afraid the 1st time i went to get them done (i was 8) and i chickened out. finally i got my courage up and i told my mom i wanted 'em done for real, so i got my 1st lobes done when i was 10 at my doctor's office (my mom was afraid to take me any where but there). my doc did the peircing w/ a gun, and told ... read more

Vertical Labret Alternative

ted out in the peircing world a month after i was 18. I had gotten my tongue pierced at studio one in glenolden, PA, and since then i was addicted. I met an enthusiast at my new job, and he has been a great source of info on the subject and is overall a damn good guy. He just happens to be seeing kristin, and such is the story of how i got hooked up with my new piercing artist. I got both nipples pierced at infinite after my tongue, and i decided to go back for a vertical labret. ... read more

Zero gauge in my cartilage

sitting at home on evening while my parents were away and i was bored, i'd wanted a piercing for a long time up to this point, but my parents weren't too happpy about it so i did it behind their back. I took a safety pin and cleaned it with antibacterial soap, put it over an open flame and then picked a spot, i shoved it through my cartilage and let it rest for about an hour, then put a regular stud in. After a week of grounding and what not i was at work where i asked my friend ... read more
