Cheek piercings; the good, the bad and the ugly.

My cheek piercing experience could easily be defined as that of a successful one. Knowing that their referred to as "the piercing that never heals" made me wary at first, but deeply satisfied now that (a year later) there as close to healed as I've seen possible. First things first with cheek piercings; be patient. For the first week or so, my cheeks and face were not very happy with me. I looked like a chipmunk. Being in that relative area and all, I knew they were going to swell, and swell a lot. But I didn't imagine it would ... read more

A lot more than a replacement.

About six months ago, I decided that the time was right to get the lowbrets that I had always wanted, and that I did. I was very happy with them after they were done, but unexpected swelling and other complications led to them being taken out, repierced, taken out again, and then repierced again, and then taken out yet again. I was very frustrated, and felt like my face looked naked without the little studs I had worked so hard to try to keep poking out below my lips. So, to fix my problem, I decided to look into similar ... read more

Not So Hard.

I had recently been debating piercing my smiley/scrumper or what ever you wish to call it. I've always really liked this piercing, and one of my friends has it and gets compliments all the time. I especially like it if the loop chosen is pretty thin, without balls or colors other than silver. Being only fifteen, my mother doesn't actually approve of facial piercing so I figured this would be relatively easy to hide, and I would be able to do it myself. I wasn't worried about doing it myself as I have done a number of piercings on myself ... read more

I Wanted A Vertical Labret!

If you want to read about the piercing only then go straight to paragraph 4, the first 3 chapters are a little about me. It had been nearly 2 months after I got my conch pierced and I was having a really bad itch for another piercing. All the piercings I had were hidden. My conch, tragus and stretched lobes behind my hair and my tongue and handskindiver aren't noticeable unless I point them out to you. I wanted something more eye catching so I decided on a facial piercing. Normal lip piercings are very common around where I live ... read more

If you were considering getting your cheeks pierced...

So, I've had plenty of experiences with piercings, and getting my cheeks pierced definitely wasn't as bad as I had anticipated. I got them pierced on a Friday night, August 28th of this year. I have five other facial piercings, not including my ears. All of which were DIY and turned out really well. Actually, they're about as perfect as they're going to get. My cheek piercings are the only piercings I've ever had done professionally, and they were the only piercings that bled. It wasn't bad, though. Maybe it's because when I pierce myself I tend to go relatively ... read more

Home Monroe.

Even though I'm only fourteen years of age, fifteen in a week, i've been debating on getting either my lip or monroe pierced for just about a year now. I asked all my friends if I would look good with one of them. Of course they all said "don't do that to your pretty face," except one friend of mine, who's opinion meant most to me. He personally likes a Monroe piercing better, and since I liked either one I decided on a Monroe piercing. Now even though I knew neither one of my parents would bring me to get ... read more

What's better than a labret piercing? A vertical labret.

I believe the way I am is karma for my parents. My mom was the lead cheerleader in her high school, and my dad was the quarterback in his. I'm not like that at all. I've started dressing in all black in grade four, so you know in a few years I'd be asking for a piercing or two. When I was fifteen, I finally asked my mom for a piercing. I've never seen her so shocked in her life. "People are going to think you're dirty, and it's going to look dirty," was my mom's reply. "Never ask me ... read more

DIY I have it and now....i want more

Okay so how can I explain this without sounding like a little kid with a shiny needle? (XD) Well I had been wanting a lip piercing for about two years now. I didn't want it for anybody else I wanted it for me. my older sister started to bride me. Good grades + Good attitude= lip piercing? correct? WRONG! I had the good grades and everything and I was still miserably lied to. I'm babbling aren't I? don't worry I'm getting to the good stuff. It's a few months long experience so just sit in and listen to the beginning ... read more

Welcome to College

For the first time in my life I've been able to make all the decisions about my body modifications, thank you Canada. I'm originally from the US, so you have to be 18 to get piercings without parental consent, and 16 with consent. Let's just say that my parents aren't too keen on facial piercings. They allowed me to get my nose pierced, but that alone took days of begging to get. So, when I left for college in Canada, of course getting a piercing was near the top of my list of things to do. Now, my first week ... read more

changed my mind on the medusa!

The first time I saw a medusa was when I was 16 in high school. My older "emo" friend who had a ton of facial piercings. I hated the medusa, I felt like she was just going overboard with the metal. Lately I've been seeing a lot of images of girls on BME with medusas (or "philtrums" as they're called now) and started to really crave it. I have had snake bites before but took them out because I chipped my tooth pretty bad one day, and was scared for gum erosion. However, I didn't think a medusa could cause ... read more
