My unprofessional (and expensive) piercing experience

I am one of those flippant mind changers when it comes to piercing. I always want something new, but for some reason or another I always seem to remove a piercing after a few months and regret it. The only piercing I have ever kept for a decent length of time are my lobes. (Not that I can easily just heal them up, they are getting bigger all the time) Anywho, I was pondering in the mirror one day, deciding that my tiny labret and one dermal anchor was not enough for me, I needed something else to make my ... read more

Artificial dimples for my sweet seventeen.

I'm not too new to the world of body modification, in the past four years I've acquired thirty or so man-made holes throughout various parts of my body and have stretched my ears 28mm during those four years. I may only be seventeen, but I educate myself thoroughly before ever diving into the thought of getting something. And no, I am not another teenager saying they know anything about a topic without any knowledge whatsoever like I've seen before. Since I was sixteen I had wanted my cheeks pierced, and I was determined to have them. I'm not sure as ... read more

My smiley

SO let me start off by describing myself. Hi, my name is Erika and I'm addicted to body mods, specifically piercings. I have thirteen piercings, including my new smiley. Otherwise, I have three lobe piercings on each side, three helixes, my navel, my nostril and a vertical labret. I am truly addicted. I just recently had my vertical labret done. It had only been 4 1/2 months, and I already had that itch coming back. I originally thought about getting my septum pierced, but remembered that my girlfriend didn't like that idea. So I had to come up with another ... read more

You have how many now?

It started back in January. I got a center labret after seeing Hannah Aitchison's one and loved it to pieces. Then, I wanted more... I got my first set of snakebites back in june and waited till they healed before deciding to get another set after alot of thought. So I approached my mum and asked her how she felt about it, suprisingly she was very supportive. Even though it ment her eldest daughter would now be the most facially pierced person in her school (FACT!). But then again, she does have a labret herself that I encouraged her to ... read more

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


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
