Perfect 19th Birthday Present

Well for my past birthdays, ever since I was 16 years old, I have gotten some kind of body mod whether it is a tattoo or a piercing or last year I got both. Anyways, for my 19th birthday I decided I wanted to go with a nose piercing since I thought they were too cute and a very discrete facial piercing. I just recently moved to Springfield, MO and one of the first things I started doing was looking around for a good tattoo studio. I did a lot of searching around on the internet and talking to people ... read more

Offended Into Action

Offended into Action: My Septum Piercing Since I was quite young, I have felt the need to stand out and be different. To me, fitting in was extremely unappealing, and as I grew older, piercings revealed themselves as a beautiful way to identify myself as an individual. I turned eighteen in March of last year, and was psyched to finally be old enough to get poked without parental permission. Unfortunately, this was a large issue with me, considering my parents are rather hesitant of change, and I still live at home. As the months passed by, I fretted about which ... read more

Of course I'll get a cold three days after piercing my septum.

I should stop saying that I won't do something, or am not a big fan of it, or whatever. Because inevitably, about five minutes after I say, "Eh, not for me," I decide that it sounds like a really good idea. That's been the case for my lip piercing, my nostril piercing, and my stretched lobes, and, most recently, my septum. I have, and here it comes, never been a huge fan of septum piercings. That whole ring-through-the-nose thing just didn't do it for me -- I liked it all right on other people, but it was one of those ... read more

Must Pierce Nose Now!

So, I had never really been a fan of nose piercings. It looks good on some people, but not everyone. Then, one day I woke up and needed to pierce mine. Right away. It was the weirdest thing. So, I asked around at work to see if anyone wanted to make an outing of it and my good friend Jenn came with me. I tried to go to my old standby piercing place, Body Works Productions in Cleveland, but apparently they had closed down three years earlier. Luckily, I found one of the piercers at a new place in North ... read more

I'm bored, I guess I'll stretch my septum

My parents never let me stretch my ears when I was a kid, so I have never stretched any piercing until yesterday. I had my septum pierced when I was sixteen, but sadly that was a short lived piercing. I got it pierced again about a month or two ago at a 14 gauge and just let the retainer chill there until I got more cash or an Idea of what I wanted to do with it. The other day when I went to Infinite Body Piercing to take care of some business, I was looking at their jewelry and ... read more

A word of caution to those switching to a ring too early...

Ever since I had turned 18, I knew I was going to be getting a lot of piercings. I had already had 5 done previously and I felt it was time to add another. I only had my septum in my face, and I had always wanted a ring in my nose. So I thought that getting my nostril pierced would make a good addition. I decided to wait until a Thursday (Evolved has buy 1, get 1 Thursdays) so I could get another piercing for free, even if I ended up taking it out anyways. So I went with ... read more

A Septum Experience

So, about two and a half to three months ago, I decided to get a new piercing. I was not exactly sure on what to get so I thought about it. I thought about something that would help to enlighten my personal experience in the area of body modification. I thought for about two weeks when all of the sudden, it hit me, "I should get a nose piercing!" Then came the task of deciding WHAT nose piercing. I did not know exactly what on the nose could get pierced besides the nostril, so I asked my piercer. He told ... read more

A bad story, with a good ending

Last summer I decided I wanted my nose pierced. I had seen a lot of my friends get theirs done and I love the way that they looked. After some major convincing, my parents finally agreed to let me get it done and I was set to have it done on my vacation to Virginia Beach. When I used to live in Virginia Beach, I had all my other piercings done by the same guy at Rocks Body Shop at the beach. It seemed kind of obvious that thats where I would get my nose pierced. When I got to ... read more

The star that started it all

At a very young age I knew that tattoos and piercings were my 'thing'. But, I also realized, (partially assumed), that you could not keep a job while being heavily modified. I started stretching my ears at a very young age, I was probably about 14. I got my very first tattoo on my 16th birthday from my mum, who, although has an undying love for tattoos, despises piercings. But, the tattoo, the stretching.. it wasn't enough. I liked the rush of piercings.. the short, pleasant rush. So I got my tongue pierced. Was I satisfied yet? Hell no! Finally ... read more

3rd time's a charm - my 10 g septum

So I've always been a big fan of piercings; since as long as i can remember. What started this fascination was probably the day I saw my first pre-school teacher's boyfriend come in. I saw one of his ears pierced all up his cartilage, and after I got my ears pierced later on, I knew I'd be back for more. After my first ear piercings, i got double lobe piercings followed by my first cartilage piercing a year after, and my parents decided that that was enough. Of course, I didn't. I triple pierced my left ear and pierced the ... read more
