Ten years ago, a piercing...

I'm not sure why I have always been interested in piercing...And a paradox is I don't even like jewelery much and only wear a neckless and a couple of rings. I had my ears pierced a few months after I was born and it was painful for years. I used to cry a lot when I had to remove and clean the studs... but suddenly, around 13 years old, I showed interest in having a few more ear piercing done. Eventually, at the end of the summer, I had added three holes in each ears and I was quite proud ... read more

Nostril piercing - one coward's tale

It had been several years since I last got a piercing, and while I had been considering getting my nose done for about a year, the fact is, I'm a coward. I don't handle pain well. So I had been putting it off, but I was sick of admiring other people's piercings. I wanted more of my own, dammit! I'd survived the pain before, when I had my labret pierced, so I knew that I could go through with it. When it came down to it, I was just procrastinating. I realised earlier this year after visiting the dentist that ... read more

Nose Piercing with Minor Problems

The September of my first year of university I wanted to get my nose pierced. At the time, I had three lobe piercings in each ear, my belly button had been pierced, but was not healing well at all, and I had both nipples pierced too, with no problems. I felt comfortable going to Cottage 13 for my nose because my nipple piercings were so easy to heal. I made an appointment at Cottage 13, a short bus ride from my parent's house, and went to get my nose pierced by myself. On the bus ride there, I was getting ... read more

My Septum Piercing – My new best friend ☺

I have loved and lost many piercings over the years for one reason or another and am always on the lookout for piercings that are new and exciting to me. I was at a friend's gig last Friday night and quite randomly I thought to myself "I want my septum pierced!" Honestly I had never considered a septum piercing for myself and had actually said in the past that was the one mod I wouldn't get. I had thought it seemed too much for little ol' me! However after my revelation I told my friend (who is also a professional ... read more

My septum experience

I've been interested in piercings for years. Like many 14 year olds I couldn't wait until I was 18 and could get what piercings I wanted without parental consent. I was totally jealous of other people in my school who got lip and ear piercings under 18. I freaked out one of my friends when she got a side labret, I went with her and I was more excited about it than she actually was! I guess I was quite sad when I was younger... :P . The most I got until I was 17 and got a labret, was ... read more

My self done septum

Since a very young age, I have been infatuated with piercings. I am not sure why, but being able to decorate your body fascinated me. naturally my parents have always been against any piercings, other than the standard single hole in each earlobe. my rebellion began in 5th grade. this is a very clear memory. I had wanted to put a second hole in one of my ears, so one day, I sat on my bed and rammed an earring stud through my ear. pop! it went in. when my dad drove me to school the next morning, I covered ... read more

my diy septum

Ok. So if you've read this, and seen I'm 14, and are shocked, don't be. I'm a lot more mature than most 14 years old and have wanted this piercing for two years! So don't judge me. Well, it started out today when I met a friend for some lunch. I had mentioned to her that I needed some more needles because I had none left after piercing some friend's cartilage. So, as a surprise, she got me some.They were cannular, not what I'm used to, but I figured it'd be nice to learn how to use them and get ... read more

much better than anticipated

When I first contemplated a nose piercing, I wanted to get a standard side or nostril piercing. But where I work you cannot have any facial piercings, which is fine for the ones I already have, I just take them out, but it is so annoying knowing that I cannot add to my piercing collection. That is when I started to think about a septum piercing (due to the fact that you can flip up the jewelry to hide it at work). After thinking about it for a while, I decided I would go ahead and get it done. Before ... read more

[diy] Septum

Septum Piercing Story Disclaimer: I do not advocate self-piercing. If you have a safety pin and some rubbing alcohol, do not even think about it. Proper tools include an autoclave, sterilized HOLLOW GAUGE needles, iodine, Gentian Violet [to mark], bleach, and clamps [optional]. Well, I have 17 piercings, 6x left lobe, 5x right lobe, 3x labret, 2x nostril, and my septum, which I'm going to tell you about. I had started to think about what type of piercing would suit my face, mainly my nose, after I had my double nostrils done. I figured three labrets... three nostril piercings... a ... read more

A Spontaneous But Worth While Decision

Last week, me and my friend Natalie were talking about tattoos. We've both wanted one for ages, but I wanted wait until I got mine. So we agreed to go book her tattoo once we had found a design she liked (she wanted two angel wings on the back of her neck), but I suddenly felt this urge to have some form of something done to my body. I have a few piercings, all fairly standard, I have a double lobe (the second holes were DIY) piercing on each ear, a cartilage piercing on my top right ear and my ... read more
