Every cloud has a silver lining

So I was 15 and one of my friends had his tongue pierced and I thought it looked cool so i started thinking about what it would be like if I got mine pierced. A few mouths later it was coming up for my 16th birthday and I started thinking about tongue piercing (I stop thinking about it for a while) then I turned 16 and I knew for sure i wanted my tongue pierced because I wouldn't stop going on about it so a couple days after my birthday I asked my mum if I could get it done ... read more

Embedded Labret Disk, OUCH!

About 3 months ago I went on vacation to San Francisco and got myself a pair of Snakebite piercings. I was utterly in LOVE with them. The person who did my piercing was just so awesome and there was no attitude from the people at the shop. I've put off getting the piercing for a while because whenever I go to a shop, I get so much attitude and couldn't bring myself to get pierced there. Back to the story. Unfortunately, I really could not have them in at work. I got a lot of crap for it from superiors, ... read more

[diy] Multi Labret

Multi Labret Story I'm back to tell you of my other self-piercing adventures! Let's start with the standard disclaimer. Self-piercing is a very dumb idea if your materials include rubbing alcohol and a "big" sewing needle. Rubbing alcohol is not suitable for disinfecting and a sewing needle is only acceptable if you're going to be doing some sewing. If you feel the need to do it yourself, get the right materials. Pre-sterilized hollow gauge needles, clamps [that have been autoclaved], Gentian Violet [or a sterile surgical pen], bleach, a friend/phone, sterile/autoclaved jewelry, and some sort of knowledge about the anatomy ... read more

To add to my many body mods...

I have been getting pierced since I was twelve years old and had already been begging my parents to let me get a nose ring for several years. I think both of my parents realised that I was going to get it done, regardless of their answer - my step dad accompanied me to get my nose pierced (eventually done by some inexperienced idiot with a gun in a place I won't name). I guess they thought letting me have that done would be the end of it but countless piercings later they seem to have given up moaning at ... read more

Oh snap

I guess I'll start this story with what everyone always starts there's with: I've always been attracted to piercings. Ever since I can remember really. Since I was 16 I've had my nose pierced twice, my tongue pierced, my lip and my eyebrow. All retired now, and I miss them dearly. Why did I take them out? Because I get way to nervous, way to easy and as soon as something swells or turns a bit red I panic and take it out. I decided a while back after I retired my tongue ring, that i was going to stick ... read more

My labret piercing

So I decided that after my first piercing that I was addicted and I wanted tons more. The facial piercings I have at the moment are the right side of my lip, my labret, and the left side of my nose. I had my nose pierced twice on the left because the first time it got infected. Anyways, I went to my mom and told her, "Hey I want a labret piercing" and she said, "that's going to hurt like a bitch but whatever". So we called up the guy who did my last piercing and we asked him how ... read more

My Ashley/Inverted Vertical Labret Piercing

I think I had my last piercing, a medusa, done in 2006, and then decided that 4 visible facial piercings (Medusa, labret, eyebrow and septum) would be enough. In my new job, 2 of my coworkers were constantly talking about how awesome my piercings are, and that they were planning to get pierced themselves soon. When I heard them talking about their plans, I suddenly got in the mood for another piercing. After all I had taken my eyebrow piercing out anyway, because it was starting to migrate, so I could as well get another one. I had always wanted ... read more


This little story is all about the day I had my labret pierced. A little background information...This is my third piercing. I also have my ears and nose done. It all started when I was browsing BMEZine. I knew I wanted a lip ring, I just didn't know where and what on Earth the piercing was called. So, I decided I'd try to convince my parents to let me have it done. It took two weeks. (My ears took one day and my nose took a week.) The next day I booked my appointment at Hairhouse Warehouse, which was where ... read more

I should have done it sooner!

I spent about two or three years considering the idea of getting a lip piercing before I actually did it. Mostly, I was worried about it being painful and concerned about how long it would take to heal, plus I'm a bit of a coward sometimes - and I'd never been pierced with a needle before, and had no idea what it would feel like. I still really really liked the way they look, though, and I even had a fake one that I'd wear sometimes to get an idea of how it would look on me. In the end, ... read more

Finish off my canines

Before I go into my day where I was actually in skin decisions, there is an awesome story behind getting there. The day before I went, I was searching the internet for maps, bus schedules and of course the fees. After I had my great knowledge I went to bed, set my alarm for 8 and booted it to sleep. I don't think you need to know about my morning routine because it is pretty basic, and that winds me up to right before I'm leaving. My mom stops me at the door (she knew I was going to get ... read more
