Please do not destroy my nose!

So herein lays my latest experience with body modification. It was somewhat scary, which I will get to in the proceeding story. For background, let me tell you briefly about my resume of past body modifications as they may relate to my descriptions: I have had my nipples pierced 3 times each a vertical nape over top of a horizontal, my ears both once, and a madison twice. My experience related here is a re-piercing of my once 8 gauge septum, taken out around 3 years ago. I have not had any piercings in for about that long, as well. ... read more

First Facial Piercing

I got my septum pierced on a lark. It honestly was a last minute decision, but one I'm glad I made. Let me start by saying that I only recently became fond of septum piercings. I used to find them odd, awkward, & unattractive, & I used to say that they made people look like bulls. Maybe something in me changed, or maybe I've just been meeting a lot of people for whom a septum piercing really works. Either way, I decided that I wanted one. A septum piercing is the ideal facial piercing for me for many reasons. First ... read more

Piercing i näsvingen

Jag heter Erica och är numera 18 år gammal. Det var tre år sedan jag gjorde denna piercing, då var jag 15 och gick i nian. Jag minns inte exakt allt, men ska försöka återge det så bra jag kan. Jag hade sedan innan en piercing i ögonbrynet, som var min första piercing. Den gjorde jag i början av april och jag blev så sugen på fler piercings att jag bestämde mig för att göra i näsan också (en så kallad nostril) och någon gång i början av maj blev det av. Jag orkade inte åka till studion i Borlänge ... read more

Finally getting my septum, for good this time.

Ever since I was about 16, I wanted a septum piercing. I don't know why, I just remember thinking it was the most interesting piercing I had ever seen- and that it looks cute on a girl. At this time I already had my eyebrow done (although it was a short lived piercing) and my parents had been okay with that. Now, I'll be completely honest- I was never a troublemaker at home. Sure, I did things my parents would not have approved of (who doesn't?), but I kept it very quiet and never gave them any reason to doubt ... read more

Watery Eyes

Okay, well about a year ago now, I decided to skip my high school graduation and get a piercing instead. High school had been a total waste of my time, and I figured hey, why not go out with a bang? I had been toying with the idea of getting my septum done for a couple months... I really loved the idea that I could have this piercing that pretty much could be hidden away for work and such... I thought it was gorgeous, and extremely convenient for day-to-day living where some people tend to frown down upon body modification. ... read more

Nose piercings rock!

So, I've been nagging my mom to let me get a piercing for a really long time. Well, I already had my ears and cartilage done, but I wanted a REAL piercing. First, I tried for nose. No-go, I was only 12. I tried for belly button, she said yes, and then that fell through. I decided I didn't want it. I tried for lip...uh-uh. Then, I tried for tongue. For a LONG time. Eventually she said yes, but I had been scared about it because it could mess up my singing. Then I wanted my eyebrow done, but I'm ... read more

Ewww, don't get THAT!

I'll skip the whole bit about how I didn't like septum piercings and now I do business and just start. I planned to get a new piercing as soon as I returned home from my family vacation. However, I wasn't quite sure what I wanted. I knew a clavicle surface piercing, sternum surface piercing, smiley, nies/slip, and septum were all on my list of eager-to-get mods. Reality set in and I realized my piercer refused to do surface piercings other than nape; it's a pain to find someone willing to do a slip piercing; so I'm left with smiley and ... read more

Wasn't nearly as bad as expected.

For quite some time I had wanted to get another facial piercing, but still be able to get a decent job that wouldn't require me to take it out. Then it occurred to me... SEPTUM! So simple! Hide it while at work or with the old people (parents). So I decided to have Kala do it seeing as there isn't a single other place on this damn island that doesn't either overcharge or have no clue what they are doing. I was so nervous when I was going to get it done that I invited my friend Tara to come ... read more

My Super Sneaky Septum

Basically, I'm a piercing junkie. So far I've had my lip pierced, a nostril piercing, a tri-navel piercing, 10 in my ears [including tragus, rook, a 10mm tunnel and an industrial], and the most recent, my lovely septum piercing. So yes, as you can see in my short life I've had quite a lot of work done... But I'd never even thought about getting my septum pierced until a few months ago. I'd always thought of it as a bit extreme and well, not exactly a pretty piercing. All that changed about 5 months ago when I saw a picture ... read more

DIY Septum Piercing

So after about seven months of trying to convince my mom to give me her consent so I can have my septum pierced, professionally, I finally gave up and decided to do it myself, like all of my piercings. Now, for all the anti-DIY people reading this, don't start freaking out on me about how idiotic and unsafe this is. The moment I listed septum piercing in my wish list, I began researching about procedures, (finding really scarce amount), experiences--both written and recorded, health risks, and a bunch of other stuffs. I did my research repeatedly, for about two months. ... read more
