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

Vertical Labret Issues

So for as long as I have remembered I've always been attracted to surface piercings. My first initial goal was to get my eyebrow pierced, which I did, at the age of 16. Eyebrow piercings are one of the highest rejecting facial piercings and that is exactly what happened with mine. After trying to pierce it again at the age of 17 and it still rejecting I decided to move on with a different body mod. After turning 18 this past March I was hell bent on getting my vertical labret done. A vertical labret is a piercing that is ... read more

The Amazingly Easy Scrumper Self-Piercing

So not too long ago, maybe almost a month, I was sitting in my basement with my boyfriend and thought "Hey! I need another piercing!" I had problems thinking of what I should do, because I already have Angel Bites, Snake Bites, Horizontal Eyebrow, Bellybutton, Tongue, and many in my ears. After I thought for awhile, I figured I would pierce my Scrumper. I initially wanted to do my tongue webbing, but the angle my tongue is pierced, I couldn't. And then, I figured I would do my dimples, but I didn't have the right jewellery, and I didn't want ... read more

After FIVE years, I got it!

About five years ago, my friends and I were very into going to the local arcade and playing Dance Dance Revolution. During our time there, we met some very interesting people, including the first person I personally knew who had a lip ring. He was older than me, and every time I was around him, I fell more and more in love with a lip ring. It didn't help that one of my close friends became friends with a girl who had both sides of her lip pierced (in addition to her nose and her eyebrow). Being around these people ... read more

Self done lip ring

One day, my cousin had mentioned to me that she thought it was cool to get a lip ring. I had only had my ears done twice, and two piercings in my cartilage, but i thought it was a cool idea for her. After a while I kept thinking more and more about it, and thought it would be pretty cool to get it done for myself too. I had had friends that had their nose pierced, and belly button pierced, but never lip. I figured it was something different to try. When i decided I wanted to get my ... read more

Positive Labret Experience ♥

First the boring background. Ever since my obsession started with Disturbed I had wanted a labret, also my father has one. My mother has always been REALLY against piercings, but said I could get one on March Break of 2008 (turned 15 in December). The labret completes my appearance. It really adds to my personality, so I suggest going for it if it's one of the piercings you stare lovingly at, you will NOT regret it. THE EXPERIENCE. When March Break came my mother was driving me and my sister to Hardcore Piercings & Tattoos to get our birthday piercing ... read more

Once a lip ring, now snakebites.

I know it says six months, but it's actually closer to 9. There's no option for that, but since it's closer to six months than a year (only by a few days!) I figured that's what I'd go with. For three months, I'd had a lip ring on the right side. For a bit over a month and a half, I'd been absently thinking that hey, snakebites are cool. For about three weeks, I'd been thinking that damn, snakebites are awesome. I should seriously think about getting the other side of my lip pierced. For about a week and a ... read more
