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

Uneventful Cheek Piercing

I was in Salt Lake City after being away for the past 2 years in between Afghanistan and Kuwait. My father in law is sick with cancer and the mood in the house ranged from depression to laughs, to serious talks about life and living and happiness. My father in law went early morning for his dialysis and after he came home, went straight to sleep, as the process wears him out. Looking at him lying in his chair asleep, his skin, one a tanned golden now a dull yellow, I decided that I needed to do something to make ... read more

Ten Hour Lip Piercing

I am eighteen years old and I have been in love with body piercing for a long time. When I was younger, I got my ears pierced first just like almost eeeveryone else. My second piercing was on a trip with my mother and her friend and her friends daughter, where I was given a choice: second set of holes, or cartilage. I ended up choosing the latter. That was a few years ago. It was in my later pre-teen/teen years was when I really started to like piercings. I read about them online, started memorizing names and locations, and ... read more

Self done lip/labret piercing

So, yesterday I decided that I was going to put something in motion that I had wanted for a long time. For as long as I can remember I have been fascinated with piercings and positive that I would soon get my own artistic body piercing. I had my ears done when I was a baby, so my first major move in the piercing area was to stretch them. I started doing that only a month ago, and I'm only at a 10 now. But anyways, back to the point. I had always wanted a septum piercing and a Monroe ... read more

My Philtrum / Medusa and lower lip.

Alright, so I had been wanting a new piercing for awhile, mostly because it had been around 8 months since my last one. I had spent quite a bit of time browsing the internet for something that jumped out at me, and I really liked the look of philtrum (medusa) piercings, and since I only seen one other person who had one at the time, it seemed like a suitable choice. I was set on it, I wanted one. So I started reading all the experiences on bme that I could about philtrum piercings, just to get a feel for ... read more

My Long Awaited Lip Piercing

So i've been asking my parents for about 4 or 5 years to get my lip pierced, and as most people will be able to guess, their answer was no. I now know that they originally said no because they thought it was a phase i'd grow out of. Rewind my life about 2 years, i'm 14 and still asking for this to be done, they say no again, and here's me thinking i'll never get it done. I kept pestering them occasionally over the next 2 years and eventually my dad said I could get it done when I ... read more

Like A Virgin

Before anything else: thanks to bme.com and to the people who share their stories here. I spent a lot of time digging through this site as part of my research, and it really helped. Now I'm on here every day! So I thought I should add a story of my own. I'd been /obsessed/ with getting my Madonna for most of this year. But I kept putting it off, because I couldn't manage a two week gap between externships. I satisfied myself with trawling the internet for information, personal accounts, pictures and videos. And quizzing everyone I ran into out ... read more

My Bottom Right Labret Piercing!

Thursday 1st October 2009! I have done my lip myself 4 times in the past, which has never gone really well and had to be taken out a few hours after being done, but I couldn't get it done professionally as my mum would notice. My original plan was to get my wrist pierced or get a new tattoo, but in Tattooze they are quite strict with age and wouldn't agree to do it for me. I decided on a bottom lip piercing (Labret) to the right side of my lip, left to you. I told the piercer what I ... read more

My Medusa

I'm one of those people, who once they see a piercing and fall in love, that have to get it right away. I had been on here and saw a medusa piercing before and they never really interested me at all, but for some reason when I looked one day later on I decided I HAD to have one. So I told my mom the next day, which was a Monday, she was fine with it and so was my dad who has the "its your body you can do whatever you want to it" philosophy. Being I was only ... read more
