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

Vertical Labret.

I've wanted to get my lip pierced since I was 10 and experimented with self-piercing at 14-15, which was stupid and I got really, really lucky that I didn't end up with some horrible infection. I let all of my self-pierced holes close up once I hit 17 and decided to wait until I hit 18 and could go get it done professionally since my mum wouldn't let me have it done before that. I was first introduced to the vertical labret piercing when I went with my girlfriend to get hers done and have been madly in love with ... read more

A Needle Through My Flesh

For a while, my vertical labret piercing seemed like it was destined to fail. First, my living area is not a large body modification area, so I had to be very careful about which shop I went to. Many of them would not even perform the piercing! Finally, I found a shop I liked- they were relatively cost-effective, professional, friendly, and clean. Next stop was getting there. One of my friends, who I should note hated the idea, said she would come with me. We first went in the day after my birthday- no go. The piercer was not in, ... 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
