And finally, I had my snakebites!

Around 10 months ago (August 2007), I got my first "real" piercing- a lip ring on the right side of my bottom lip. My friend and I finally got them done a week before our final year of school started after a 5 year wait, and we were nervous but we made our way to Outer Limits eventually on a Thursday with her mum and I had my first lip piercing done with basically no pain in a sterile place with a really friendly piercer. I honestly couldn't have asked for better :) I was also given an aftercare sheet. ... read more

A Different Piercer this Time.

Personally, when I crave a piercing, I usually get it either on the same day or whenever time opens up for me. Usually that means when I'm not working haha. I've been craving a new piercing for awhile and before this session I had 8 piercings. I've had many ideas of where I would like it to be, but my final decision was made last week, while resting on my bed. I took out my septum retainer and placed it on my lip, right in the middle. Not only did it feel good, but I got up and looked in ... read more

Surprisingly Fantastic

To start things off, I'm of course going to give out a warning. The way I go about my DIY piercings isn't very smart and is not recommended. The risks I take, I take fully educated on what consequences could arise from them. I do not encourage following in the way I do things. It's always best to go to a professional. Moving on... I'm a big big fan of frenulum piercings. I've previously added a story on here about a tongue web piercing and I'd like to continue the updates on my DIY oral experiences. It was yesterday afternoon ... read more

my brand new badass monroe!

So I seem to be on a piercing spree as of late. Around St. Patrick's Day, I got my nose pierced. That was big, because before then I only had my ears pirced once each, and getting my nose done was a huge step for me. It didnt really hurt, and I loved it. I felt pretty cool, and then I saw a bunch of like, 12 year old teenyboppers with it done, and I was like, wtf? So I decided I wanted to get something else pierced too (not just cuz of the kids, but I was bitten by ... read more

Didn't hurt the first time...

So, this story is about getting my lip pierced (much to my mother's dismay) but she doesn't like any modification I've ever gotten, so she just deals with it at this point and doesn't complain too much any more. I had thought about getting this piercing for a while before I actually did it but when I actually went and got it done, it was completely on a whim after work one day, much like my tongue ring, but I digress. So, whilst leaving work one day, I decided, "hey, today is the day" and headed on over to Woodfield. ... read more

Cheeky Cheeky

Ok Ive wanted cheek piercings for a while now. I think they are the most gorgeous piercing if they are on the right person. I'd researched them for hours on end on the net. I'd asked friends who'd had them what to expect. I looked on the websites of loads of piercers around my area to see how much it would cost. (even though I knew where I wanted it done) and I read up on ther peoples experiences and found only a few negatie ones but mostly positives. Finally I was ready to get them. I'm not a piercing ... read more

Mijn lippiercing

De afgelopen paar jaar heb ik veel over piercings nagedacht. Na er 13 te hebben (waarvan 6 geschoten in mijn oorlellen, 2x piercing in mn oorlellen, 2x helix, neus, navel 2x) wou ik er nog steeds meer bij, maar wist niet zo goed waar. Na een geruime tijd van nadenken kwam ik toch steeds weer terug bij een lippiercing, maar doordat mn ex het niet mooi vond heb ik het idee van de baan geschoven. Uiteindelijk werd het niets met de persoon in kwestie, en ging ik weer nadenken over een lippiercing. Ik liep een tijd rond met een klein ... read more

I had to put metal in my face before I liked it

I spent a very long time hating the way that I looked. I was your typical teen girl with ridiculously low self esteem. I led a very self destructive lifestyle and treated my body like a peace of trash. That all changed with my first piercing. I moved out of my parents home when I was 18 with my boyfriend, Tim, now my husband. I had always wanted my lip pierced and mentioned it Tim to see what he thought. "I want you to do whatever makes you happy, " was the response I got. I played around with the ... read more

Button your lip

It's been a very, very long time since I've had a new piercing – in fact, recently I've taken a lot of them out and downsized my half-inch earlobes to 5mm, because I was kind of bored with the whole piercing thing. (I know, shoot me now!) My first body modification love has always been ink, with piercings as a secondary decorative attraction rather than the Big Deal for me. But, despite this, there are still some piercings that I need to have to feel complete – the ones I've kept (my tragi, rooks, tongue, hood and vertical labret) are ... read more

Botched Vertical-Labret Repierce

When I was 16 I decided to get my vertical labret pierced after much research on BME. The piercer who did it also previously pierced my: septum, monroe, and lip, as well as my boyfriend's: center lip, snakebites, and septum. He used (special-order) internally threaded jewelery and made me feel at ease especially as he explained EVERYTHING step-by-step. The piercing wasn't too bad, he pierced slowly with a 16-gauge needle (as he guided the needle) from bottom to top and there was a slight burn as the needle exited through my lip. The jewelery transfer was easy and I was ... read more
