More ear piercings...

e ear piercings... Well, my ears are finished. For the moment. I now have six piercings on the left side and three on the right side. No particular reason why there's twice as many on the left, but I had a bizarre conversation with some one who pointed out to me that the way I had my ears pierced made me 33% gay. I pointed out to him that his statement made him 100% stupid. Some of the piercings I've already written about and are already on the BME (helix, tragus, antitragus, lower conch -all in the left ear). I'd ... read more

8ga --> 2ga Ear Piercing

--> 2ga Ear Piercing 2 weeks ago I had my ears repierced, as my original (gun) pierces were unsuitable for stretching. My piercer, Danny, suggested an initial needle pierce at 8 ga, followed by an immediate stretch to 2 ga. So I went down to Polymorph (Newtown, Australia), and I was shown the 2 ga plugs I was soon to wear - I got a little apprehensive, they looked so huge. But I decided to go through with it, and the plugs were put in the autoclave. Danny marked my ears, commenting on their huge stretching potential :) Then he ... read more

Snug Experience

ence Date: Tue, 01 Oct 1996 02:05:41 -0400 From: Luis G. SNUG EXPERIENCE OK well I was at the Philly R.A.B. Munch and was itching to get pierced once more. I wanted a "hard core" cartilage piercing (as I call em). I already had two daiths, so I wanted something that is not very common, as more and more people in my area (DC) were getiing Daiths. So I decided to get a Snug I had fallen in love with the pics of the snug on BME, so I said "I gotta have one". Went in and talked to Jim ... read more

The Holey Man

an Date: Fri, 27 Sep 1996 00:54:05 -0400 From: Joseph G. The Holey Man My name is Joseph, AKA The Holey Man. My tats include a highly stylized, near tribal spider and a Yin Yang on the upper left arm, The Buddha sitting on the seven headed cobra Mucalinda on the upper right arm, and an elfin she-warrior from the right ankle to the knee. On May 22, 1996 after watching my younger daughter get her navel pierced I got into a conversation with the piercer about how my career as a psychotherapist and Deputy clinical director at a local ... read more

Snug Experience at Phoenix Body Piercing

g Experience at Phoenix Body Piercing Snug Experience at Phoenix Body Piercing 1996 has been a big year for getting piercings for me: my nipples in June; tongue in September; transverse lobe in October and to finish out the year, a pair of snugs done last night by Christophe Deal at Phoenix Body Piercing. Chris and I arranged a trade-out for the snugs in which I gave my professional services as a typesetter for his as a piercer. I think we're both happy with the results. I love the barter system! This was the first time that Chris had done ... read more

Heidi's Tragus story

di's Tragus story The following is taken verbatim from my co-op's house journal (except for anything in italics). The story was written to be read by my 12 housemates, who were for the most part unfamiliar with bodypiercing at all. I planned for the tale to be unclear as to it's subject until the very end. Try reading it from the perspective of someone who has never heard of piercing before. This was my very first pierce, so I wasn't all that familiar with it myself before I went. My tale of Monday, Jan 2nd (1995) Okay, I showed up ... read more

Stretching Your Lobes

Your Lobes Stretching Your Lobes This is just my advice - it's far from gospel truth :) Lobe stretching has been popular in nearly every tribal culture historically, and seems to be picking up in popularity in our anti- bodmod culture. It is very easy to do... (BTW This information pretty much applies to any fleshy tissue stretching.) GETTING STARTED You will need a fully healed, well placed piercing. By well placed I mean that it should be high up enough on the lobe that when stretched the bottom skin won't be thinner than the sides - this can cause ... read more

Tragus Experience

gus Experience Back in the summer of '95, I went to visit a friend in Las Vegas who was in the air force. A bucnch of us decided to go to the raceway there, to pass some time. While we were there, there were a bunch of guys sitting on the bleachers right in front of us and one of them had the most unique piercing I had ever seen! Of course I now know that this is a tragus piercing or as he called it a "dragon tongue piercing". I said to everyone there that I was going to ... read more

Bad piercing experience

g experience Bad piercing experience This is a warning to anyone thinking about getting their cartilege piercings done somewhere that uses the gun. I was stupid enough not to do any research on piercing before I went to the mall to get it done (I have two upper ear cartilege piercings in each ear). The store I went to would not use anything but the gold-plated earrings for the upper ear, they said it was because it was more "natural" and my body would accept it better. I knew this was bullshit, because I had had surgical steel plates in ... read more
