My awesome labret.

I've always loved piercings, ever since I was about 5 years old. It was only until I was fourteen, after trifling through pages of piercing pictures, that I actually wanted to get one. I was very unsure of what to get. It was a toss up between vertical labret, lip on the left, labret or septum, all of them being favorites in my book. I was very hesitant to ask for one, because for one: My dad absolutely hates modification, and two: if my mum said no (I don't deal with 'no' very well). At first, I wanted a vertical ... read more

Why didn't you get one on the top?

So, since 13 I had loved lip piercings. At that point though, I was going through my goth phase and I liked the rings, I liked the snakebites. However, whenever I put a ring from my ear around my lip I found my young, immature face didn't exactly wear the look well. In fact, I thought I looked ridiculous. So, eventually the thought left my mind, and I looked at girls with lip piercings but always knew I would never get one, especially because it would never look good on me. Fast forward four years. I'm in college, and have ... read more

Metal that sits on my lip.

My body mod obsession began young, to say the least. My parents pretty much hate the idea of "marking up my face" but some how I convinced them into getting my lip pierced. I have a monroe piercing that I had gotten almost a year earlier, and they thought another oral piercing was pushing it. But now, I sit here with a pretty silver ring in the right side of my mouth (: At first, it started with a surface pierce that I was dying for. But the more I weighed the pros and cons of it, the more I ... read more

Vertical Labret / Eskimo Piercing

Vertical Labret / Eskimo Piercing Tatatadaaaaam! Heute (15.09.08) war es endlich so weit! Einen Tag nach meinem Urlaub (ich hab extra bis danach gewartet von wegen Angst das was passiert und so, shcließlich gabs da wo ich war ganz viel Sand und Wind und das will ich einem frischen Piercing nicht unbedingt antun^^) Ich hab es getan, ich hab es wirklich getan!!! Ich kann's immer noch nicht so ganz fassen... aber der Blick in den Spiegel überzeugt mich dann doch immer vom Gegenteil^^ Ich bin, wie immer in mein Stammstudio nach Waiblingen bei Stuttgart gegangen (Highlander-web.de) , bzw. mit dem ... read more

Me+Needle+Boredom=Smiley!

I have very rebellious tendencies. After giving up certain habits for my boyfriend, I was in need of an adrenaline rush. I had been perusing BME earlier that day, and was feeling this strong want for another piercing. I just wasn't sure what yet. I compiled a short list of piercings I liked, and that I would be willing to do myself. This would be my first self-piercing, and after having eleven others done professionally, I was sure I knew what to do. I have friends that are in the body piercing business and have witnessed countless piercings. One has ... read more

Third time's the charm for my lip... I hope.

I got the itch for a new piercing about 6 months ago. I already had a ring in my left nostril, 2 captive bead rings in each earlobe, and a belly button piercing. It had been 6 years since my last piercing, during which I had been super-busy with college and became interested in tattoos, so piercing had been put on the back burner. But here I was again, trying to figure out what I could stab with a needle. I decided on a labret – simple, easy to heal and I LOVE the way they look. So for my ... read more

Medusa

I have just reached the age of seventeen, and for quite a while, I've been desperately wanting multiple piercings, including my medusa, vertical labret, cheeks, and septum. However, my dad was not so keen on the idea of me having any holes through my face, let alone my 7/16" ears or my tragus piercing. After quite a bit of convincing, he said I would be allowed to get a lip piercing if I kept my grades up in school. For quite a while, I tossed around the idea of getting snakebites, but those were too trendy and not really my ... read more

The lovely dimples I now have!

So my name is Lizz MFK and this is all about my dimples and a few tips at the end that might help some of you who might consider getting them done. It all started about three months ago, the day I walked into a wonderful shop called "Good Times" in Manassas V.A.. My piercers name was Rob, and this man was fresh from the start. He said he had never done cheek piercings before; but I put my faith in him that he could get it done, and he did. He asked it i was nervous?? I shook my ... read more

Just four stings and it's over

Getting "snakebites" was a long-term (as far as piercings go) dream of mine. A friend walked into Spanish class with his lips pierced and I instantly fell in love. However, since I was.. Oh, 13 or so I knew I wouldn't be able to do it for a while. Even after I had gotten 10 other piercings, I was still slightly anxious to go for these, as they would be more "in your face" than all my others. I brought it up this summer, the time right before I was about to enter college, and so began the long, arduous ... read more

Snakebites - My gateway piercing.

I'm not sure I remember when I first saw a 'major' piercing. I'm sure I was younger, about nine or ten, and easily impressionable. And by major, I mean something besides your 'average' ear piercing, like a tongue piercing, or an eyebrow. Now, fortunately, I have been quite blessed with a mother who is a veteran of piercings, having two tongue, a bar through the front of the neck that, unfortunately rejected, several eyebrows, a Monroe, two nose studs, an an uncountable array of ear piercings that I'm scared to count, among other body mods. Well, about two month's ago, ... read more
