Self-Pierce Nostril

When I'm about to do my own piercing I always come to BME to check out the war stories or success stories. I figured it's time to post my own experiences for other people to learn from. My background in the world of body modification is 10 piercings in various places, but you're reading this to learn about piercing your own nose so I won't elaborate. My nostril was my 10th piercing. Of my previous 9, 5 were self-done. Seeing as it is cheaper and more comfortable if you do it right and well, I once again opted to do ... read more

My DIY experience

I decided to do my septum on the spur of the moment when a friend offered to. I'd realized how pretty they looked after seeing it on another friend, and the idea of being able to flip it up really appealed to me. I also liked it because it was a bit more unusual. My nose is also quite straight and small, so I thought it would be nice on me. I don't think I'd get anymore piercings after my septum though (I already have my Monroe pierced) I admire people who can pull off lots of facial piercings though! ... read more

Always something there to remind me...

I have a confession to make: nostril piercings and myself? Probably not the best combination. The first time I had it done, it was with a gun...at a hair dressers...when I was 11...and by a girl who looked to be on substances that are considered illegal in Australia (I swear, I wasn't trying to break every body piercing "rule". I was uneducated!). That got ripped out a day later, on a towel. I shoved it back in, cried a bit, and loved it until it fell out in my sleep a few months later. The second time? One of my ... read more

My self nose piercing experience

So I've been wanting to get my nose pierced for quite some time now because I think it just looks cute. I'd already gotten an eyebrow piercing years ago and I couldn't see paying for a nose piercing when I could just as easily do it myself at home. I've attempted other facial piercings on my own and the only reason I didn't keep them was because I did not have the correct jewelry at the time. So, it was evening after I'd gotten home from work I had made up my mind that I would just do it then. ... read more

My long-awaited septum piercing

Hello, let me tell you about my first real piercing experience! For over two years, I have wanted a septum piercing. However, I was too much of a chicken to actually get the piercing done - until now. Doing research about good quality piercers in the area, I found a piercing studio with a very good reputation. The web site looked nice and displayed pictures of a neat looking place. I did some more research to be sure this would be the place I would get my first piercing done (not counting 2x lobe piercings done at a hairdresser at ... read more

Underage Piercing (but still great)

So I had wanted to get my nose pierced for a long long time. And being 16, I couldn't legally go to get it pierced, in Oregon where I live. Oh what is a girl to do? I had begged and begged my mom to take me, but my dad was so against it, that she was scared to take me. He told me he would kick me out if I had it done. It did not help that all of my friends would constantly tell me how great I would look with my nose pierced. I'm half East Indian, ... read more

I guess I'll get my nose pierced today

The day i got my nosed pierced started like any other day. I had no inkling that by 9 pm I'd have a new piercing. I've been modifying on and off for 4 years, and have successfully stretched my lobes, and am starting on my cartilage this fall. I got my belly button done a few years ago and hadn't done anything new since, but its worth saying all my piercings have been done with hollow needles, and there really isn't a reason to ever get pierced with a gun. I have always wanted my lip pierced and had never ... read more

The story of my iccle septum piercing.

So Friday I got up the guts to go to my piercers and enquire about septum piercings; what they had to put it in it and the price. I then went into town pondering about if I should get it done with a titanium U shaped retainer or a blackline one (which I would have to order myself.) I went home still pondering and decided that I would order a blackline one and if it was to be delivered by the next day then I would have it done with that and if it wouldn't then I would go get ... read more

Bumps no more for my nostril piercing!

I planned to get my nostril pierced for my eighteenth birthday but surprisingly, my mom took me in to get it done a week early. I debated whether or not I wanted a ring, but decided to go for a simple stud after examining my nose in the mirror and deciding it'd look better. My experience was rather simple and anti-climactic, not much to describe. We walked in, no appointment, and told them I'd like my nostril pierced. We signed the papers, paid, and he took me into a back room. But ugh, every time I go to get something ... read more

Speeding Ticket Piercing

When I was 8 I got my first set of piercings on my ears. I got the first one done and cried for nearly an hour about the pain before letting the lady do the piercing on the other side. I got it done with the gun and unfortunately I believe the sound was what scared me more than any amount of pain I may have felt. I decided I hated piercings and would never get any more. For almost four years after that I had an extreme fear of piercings from the memory of that day. I decided that ... read more
