Smiley done!

Ciao a tutti, voglio raccontarvi la mia esperienza con il piercing al Frenulo labiale superiore, volgarmente detto Smiley, detto anche Scrumper. Devo dire che i piercing ai frenuli, in generale, non mi sono mai piaciuti... Mi davano l'idea di poco stabili, in un punto così delicato... Una cosa che dura poco, e poi si rompe decisamente troppo presto. Però, complice anche il forum di piercing che frequento che è deleterio e ti mette voglia di fare tutti i piercing esistenti sulla faccia della terra, piano piano, mi sono piaciuti sempre di più tanto che un giorno mi son detta "Mi ... read more

painful experience, but worth it

For almost a year, I had been wanting to get my lip pierced. At first, I wanted a vertical labret, but then decided that it would be really painful and leave 2 scars if I ever had to take it out. So, the next best thing was a plain labret. Right down the middle, on my bottom lip. I had all of my materials handy, everything was sterilized, and so forth. I didn't have a piercing needle, so I took one of my mom's sewing needles and put it in rubbing alcohol and what not. I knew that was a ... read more

My Monroe experience!

I have an older sister and she started getting piercings at the age of 13. I was really enviouse of the whole experience and figured that maybe it was time for me to get my first piercing, (aside from my ears). I was originally thinking of my belly button, but I heard bad things. I was also going through a faze when all I cared about was Marilyn Monroe. I then heard that was actually a piercing called a Monroe. I saw pictures of it on google and decided that was going to be my piercing. My mom agreed and ... read more

Labret Piercing

I had debated whether or not to get my lip pierced for over two years. I'd always loved them and been interested in them, since I was little. Every time I met someone who had the piercing I was always so jealous. I was only concerned about scarring if I was to retire the piercing. One day, I was in town with two friends, and decided, "Hell, lets just do it, I've got the money, and I'm ready for it". This is how I like getting things; acting completely on impulse. I had looked and asked around for good piercing ... read more

A Positive Horizontal Lip Experience

Over a month or so ago, I won a free piercing at a bar. I had heard about the parlor through a few other people who had had positive experiences there. I also did some research online, to see if there was any negative feedback. Everything online looked good, like they had all their ducks in a row. I already have several other piercings and the only other one that I had planned was for a genital piercing, which said coupon did not cover. I did a bunch of research through the bme wikipedia section until I finally settled on ... read more

NEW PIERCING Snakebites. Love Them

So my birthday was on march the 16th and I've wanted snakebites for a while now, I got given the right amount of money for it and persuaded my mum into taking me seeing as I had just turned 15 and wasn't legally old enough to get them by myself. So on the 19th we went to Cambridge after I got back from school. I wasn't nervous until I was in the shop but could see the studio was clean. When I was 12 I got a navel piercing and since then I've wanted more piercing, although I have a ... read more

My lip, a needle and some anti-septic cleanser.

Disclaimer: I don't not recommend self-piercing to anyone. Consequences are too great to wager. Think about it, have you ever seen a surgeon perform on him or herself? Then why would an untrained person try to? I'm not sure if any of my piercings are typical. I've done them myself (Not recommended). Everyone said that piercings bleed, but none of mine have. A lot of people said it would take about 2 months to heal for my lip and there would be about a week of swelling. Again, I don't think I'm normal because I had hardly any swelling and ... read more

My first ‘real’ piercing- my lip.

I had been considering getting my lip pierced for a while. I looked it up, researched it, and read about it. At first, I considered doing it myself. After reading though many horror stories, I decided that this wasn't the best approach. I talked to my mom, and she disapproved of the piercing. It took me a month to convince her, but finally, she told me that I could. I was nervous going. First, I went to Dragon FX. They flat out told me that they would not do it, as I was under 16, and it could cause oral ... read more


It all started in a town named Waco, Texas... I'm in a band called Breathe Carolina. Recently we have been touring like crazy and have been able to call Texas our second home. We looked at our itinerary and ended up in Waco, Texas where the promoter happened to also own a tattoo/ piercing shop, and was awesome enough to offer free plugs as well as any piercings we wanted for free! When I heard this I almost lost it in excitement! I began to think of all of the piercings and or other mods I wanted (which they also ... read more

Lip Rings Are Fun!

I am a beast of impulse, if I see something I like I will make it mine but if too much thinking is involved I will typically get disinterested and walk away. This was not the case with my labret. It was going to be my first venture into a non-lobe piercing and I had given it a lot of thought. I cleared things with my work and my parents and had semi-arranged a trip to Anomaly Studios to get it done. It was to occur after grad night, an evening (8pm-4am) to goof around with friends while enjoying the ... read more
