My first real piercing

I should start off by explaining that for the past few years, every major event in my life has been marked by body mod, although until May it was always cutting. Sixteen marked something for me. I'd gotten through a lot of shit in the past three years and I was finally happy (and had stopped cutting). So what better way to mark that than with a piercing? My first, professionally done piercing (not including my ears when I was little). So I talked to my parents, they weren't happy. Mum saw the connection to cutting and said she didn't ... 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

Always Hidden, Almost Pointless

I'll go ahead and start this like the cliché 'girl gets septum pierced' story: I never thought I'd want my septum pierced. Out of all the possible piercings it was, in fact, the least likely thing for me to do. I'd seen many different pictures and seen them live and it simply wasn't something that appealed to me. I had a very good friend on IAM who had her septum pierced. She frequently talked about it – stretching it up or different jewelry she tried in it – but I never really gave it much thought. When I first met ... read more

Welcome to my face, septum piercing.

It's difficult to understand the significance of this piercing without a bit of background. When I first discovered piercings that were not just limited to the ears, I was more or less instantly repulsed by any nose piercings. No idea why, because I thought they looked great on the right face. Fast forward five or so years, and I notice that my taste is morphing slightly. I got a nipple piercing, followed swiftly by a genital piercing. And it was about the time of the latter when I discovered that I felt my face was missing something. For me, a ... read more

The Little Bull

My septum was my first professional modification beyond the gunning of my ears and I wouldn't have had it any other way. At first glance, I found the piercing to be horribly unattractive and I wondered why anybody would've wanted to, well, look like a bull, basically. Apparently this is a common first reaction, because after lurking BME/Modblog for a year, the septum piercing definitely began to grow on me. I was seventeen at the time of this revelation, so to speak, and I realized that this was the piecing I wanted the most. As my mother is rather conservative, ... read more

Tale of a Chicken's Nose Piercing experience

Well, it started out that I was going to Body Language on 24th and Seawall Blvd here in Galveston to watch my niece get a tattoo, something I had done before so I was happy to go along and share the experience with her. Three years ago, I went with her to get her nose piercing and she suggested that we do it at the same time, but she got brave way before I did, and I didn't do it that day. I even asked my doctor for some numbing style cream so I could do the piercing pain free, ... read more

Neuspiercing gone wrong

Ergens in maart besloot ik dat ik er nog een derde piercing bij wilde (de zes gewone gaatjes in mijn oren niet meegerekend). Geheel spontaan ben ik dus voor een neuspiercing gegaan. Normaal gesproken vond ik een neuspiercing niet echt bij mij passen, maar in combinatie met mijn labret piercing vond ik het wel een goed idee. Aldus: geld gepind, beste vriendin meegesleept naar de tattoo & piercing studio bij ons in de stad en in de wachtruimte een tijdje in m'n handjes wringen vanwege de toch opgekomen zenuwen. Hoewel ik stiekem wel wat zenuwachtig was (zou ik het nu ... read more

My rambling nose-piercing-co-worker-bonding experience!

Last Wednesday, I finally decided to re-do my left nostril piercing. I had it pierced about three years ago but unfortunately I jumped the gun on changing my piercing and my nose would not tolerate having another nose screw put in. It bled like crazy and then my screw fell down the drain, so I took it as fate telling me not to have a nose ring. Well, three years later I have decided to re-do my little piece of "nasal rebellion" as some people see it. A few months ago I had gotten a birth control implant put in ... read more
