Many mistakes, but eventual happiness.

Well I have no idea where my fascination with piercings originated, but it seems to me that I've always been interested. So about a year and a half ago i decided that I would get my lip pierced. At that time i was only 14, so it was a bit extreme. Another factor being that my parents hate anything out of the ordinary because they are pretty ignorant people. So I thought I would do it during the summer, you know, how much could it hurt, getting grounded for like a week, blah blah blah. Being that I was only ... read more

Lip Ring On a Summers Day

This is I suppose a little coming of age-esque tale. It is the tale of my first facial piercing. I have multiple holes in my ears, two of which are stretched to 4's, but I decided I just wanted something more visible. Since it was either a lip ring or a septum I decided to do a little research. I read a lot of the experiences and checked out a LOT of pictures. Finally, I decided on a lip ring. I liked the way they looked and aftercare seemed like no big deal, plus I have allergies and blowing my ... read more

First piercing (snake bites)

When I was 13 I decided I wanted to get my lip pierced. In normal teen fashion I fought and fought with my mother and father over it. My mom told me to ask my dad and my dad's response was just "I don't like the way it looks" to which I came back with the standard its my body speech. This went on for about 3 years in that time I got a job, got my grades up, and started to drive. After leaving the subject alone for a bit I reproached it with a more calm attitude. My ... read more

"Whoah. I'm bleeding"

Well. It had been six months since my last fix and merely gauging my lobe just wasn't keeping me satisfied, so it was time for a new addition to fuel the addiction. I decided on a labret, because I hadn't had a lip piercing before, and I decided it was a good place to start my facial project. It was the first Monday of my two week holidays that I decided to get it done. Partly because I couldn't wait any longer and partly because I'd get a good two weeks of healing done before I had to start worrying ... read more

Facial piercing isn't exactly the done thing in Finance!

I'm not like the majority of people who write their experiences on BME, I get piercings and tattoos purely because I like how they look, none of my tattoos or piercings have any particular meaning – they just look good!! Probably about a year ago I was browsing the galleries, looking at all the piercings, and came across, totally by chance, pictures of lowbret piercings. I saved a few pictures to my computer, and went back for a look every couple of days, not really sure if I actually wanted this piercing myself, or just liked looking at it. After ... read more

Wonderful Lip Ring

As soon as I saw a lip ring for the first time, I knew I wanted it. I started asking my mother to take me to pierce my lip when I was about 15. She said I was way too young and made up any excuse not to take me. My father also had a big problem with me putting a hole in my "pretty face" but I, of course, only wanted to enhance it. So I gave up asking for a while. About 6 months ago, my interest in lip piercing was sparked again for whatever random reason and ... read more

Snakebite for Christmas

I had been wanting my lip pierced for a few years and I finally scheduled to get it done in December, 2007 (The 16th of December, to be exact.) The first time I approached my parents about a lip piercing was when I was 10, about to turn 11, believe it or not. I had done research, watched some videos, read some stories, the works. I was eager and much to my disbelief, my father agreed to let me get it but couldn't be bothered to take me, and my mother was against it and refused to take me. I ... read more

snake bites take two

So after being horribly burned by the first shop I got my snake bites at and losing them because of my job I decided to get them re-pierced. I had a new job that would allow me to keep them in so there was no risk of me wasting my money again. I talked to my mother about it and she said she wanted to go with me again to avoid another incident. Even though it was her friend who recommended the last shop an she was with me every time I was down there. We pulled out the phone ... read more

Easiest piercing ever.

I began loving piercings after I finally got my lobes pierced when I was in 7th grade. By the time I turned 18 and had the absolute freedom to pierce whatever I pleased, I had my industrial, tragus, lots of lobes/cartilage, belly button and nose piercings. My mom became pretty lenient about piercings by the time I was 16 or 17 but the one thing she DID NOT want me to do was "pierce my face" (except my nose apparently). I don't remember where or when I saw it, but it seems like I've wanted my Monroe pierced for all ... read more

Drinking Tea Through A Straw

After getting my nose pierced at 14, I always thought I would avoid any more facial piercings. The only others I had were three in my left lobe and two in my right, which I never actually wear and although I enjoyed the look of them, I didn't have a burning desire for anything else. However, by 16, I was starting to change my mind. My younger sister had got multiple lobes, nose, tragus, cartilage and naval pierced in a short space of time and needless to say, I was beginning to feel a few pangs of jealousy. I had ... read more
