First Facial Piercing.... But Not The Last!!

So, I will admit I'm somewhat of a pussy at the best of times, even though I have quite a high pain threshold, I get very nervous when around needles. Anyway, last tuesday, I had decided that I wanted another piercing, I currently have my left ear stretched to 3mm, and my left nipple with a horizontal bar, 14g. I knew I wanted another piercing, but I just couldn't decide which... Do I get my tongue done? Snakebites? Industrial? Shit I just can't decide. Anyways, after much deliberation, I decided that I wanted my Labret done, and after speaking to ... read more

My Monroe and first professional piercing

My first professional body piercing was done by Anna at Body Piercing by Holly in Summerville, SC. Back in the day, the shop was run by just Holly and was called Hollys House of Pain. Now with multiple tattoo shops (www.hollysbodycanvas.com) Holly lets a couple of girls named Anna and Katie run the shop. In my spare time, I used to hang out up at the shop and talk with the girls and watch them pierce people. Both of them are extremely experienced at all piercings and watching them truly is a treat. I had a labret piercing that I ... read more

'Does it look good?'

At the age of 11 my outlook on music changed totally, and with some of the bands I'd started listening to, I became a lot more aware of piercings and body modification in general. Almost instantly, I took a liking to lip piercings in particular. With my Mam not being very keen on me 'messing' my body up in this way, I realized I'd have to wait it out, until I became 16. During this time I became a lot more interested in ideas, often finding out new things everyday. I was totally in love with the thought of being ... read more

My Medusa piercing!

I'm no stranger to the world of piercing, I've had 17 in my 21 years but my 18th was a little scary. Generally when I'm going to get pierced I'm fairly ok with it, planned the day, ready to go for a drink in the pub afterwards and just chill out. Since I was a teen I'd got this idea of how I wanted to look. I thought I'd wanted a side lip piercing with a ring, a la Tom Delonge. Then I wanted a middle labret a la Chester Bennington. Anyway, I'd decided what I wanted, It just took ... read more

An Ear for a Lip!

Piercings, when you get one or two you just want more. I got my ears pierced for the second time when I was thirteen and shortly after I got them done, I wanted my upper ear pierced. My mum called Planet Ink and told them the situation, hoping to make an appointment. They refused, telling my mum I had to be sixteen in order to that part of my ear pierced. When my mum told me this I was upset, but she promised, when I turn sixteen I may get my ear pierced for a third time. Well, my story ... read more

My monroe piercing.

After several months of harassing my parents to take me to get my monroe piercing done, I finally got it done a couple of days ago. At first I wanted a lip piercing (bottom lip, left side.) But my father refused to let me do that. He said that I "would look like a heroin addict". And even though every time the answer was the same I still pestered him, constantly. One day we were at a hockey game, and we were sitting in our seats during the period break. I turned to my dad and asked him for my ... read more

My lovely little monroe...what an easy piercing!

My first experience with a piercing was when I was 13; I had begged my mom and dad to let me get my ears pierced, so for my 13 birthday they finally caved but refused to go with me. My aunt drove me down to the local jewelry shop on main st. in our little town of Toledo,OR where they did ear piercings. Flash forward to present time. I'm 22 and now have 6 piercings total; ears, tongue, navel, nostril, and my most current my monroe :) lets not leave out a tribal black work tattoo on my lower back. ... read more

My beautiful monroe

Well I have wanted the Monroe piercing for awhile but did not know if I wanted two facial piercings. (I already have my nose pierced.) I am on my way to becoming a lawyer and I know that having piercings is not going to look professional in that field. I started doing some more research on line and looked at images and it just looked so elegant. This was something that I definitely would go for but since I had my nose I did not want to give people the wrong impression about me. Singing is also very important to ... read more

The long awaited lip

Firstly, I will say I do not approve of Do It Yourself piercing unless you REALLY know what your doing and have sterile equipment, You can really screw up your body. Being untrained and piercing yourself and others can have serious complications such as, infections of varying degrees (Minor swelling all the way up to full blown septicemia), bad placement ( being crooked, cutting off the circulation, passing through capillaries or arteries etc) massive scar tissue, and it puts you at higher risk of hypertrophic and keloid scars from excessive trauma. I practically grew up in a tattoo shop and ... read more

Monroe Troubles.

I was totally stoked to get my monroe done, I used to think it was the most gorgeous piercing of all. Which falls into one of my very many Marilyn Monroe obsessions. I was only 14 when i became interested in it, and I previously had my nose done. My mom thought it was a big deal to let other people stab at my genuine face, but the fact of metal in it didn't bother her. We drove about an hour to the nearest (legal) piercer. I grew nervous within every kilometer. By the time we stepped foot in the ... read more
