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

The amazing adventures of my labret and I

Just to give a bit of background info, I've probably had an interest in piercings and tattoos since I was 18 or so...probably a bit of a late starter compared to most people but I don't think that's necessarily a bad thing... Aside from my labret, I have standard lobe piercings (x1 left ear, x2 right), right tragus, right nostril and most recently a cartilage piercing about halfway up my left ear, as well as a couple of tattoos. Also of note, I'm a qualified doctor...having perhaps unwisely started medical school at the age of 17 (the youngest you can ... read more

Mijn eerste piercing

Dit is het verhaal van mijn eerste piercing: een labret. Ik was toen 17 jaar, het was begin augustus en in november zou ik 18 worden. Mijn moeder had altijd gezegd dat ik tot mijn achttiende moest wachten om een piercing te nemen. Hoe vaak ik ook vroeg of ik er eentje kreeg, ze veranderde niet van mening. Ik had wel al stiekem een stretcher laten steken, maar dat valt niet zo op. Als je thuiskomt met een labret, kan je dat natuurlijk niet zo lang verborgen houden. Vroeger zei ze altijd "je mag een piercing, zolang niemand het ziet." ... read more

child's play!

Well, this is the part where I ramble about my interest in body modification. To get to the good stuff, skip ahead a paragraph or two. I first saw the vertical labret on my best friend last year. I remember cringing at it and asking if it hurt, not believing her when she said no. Now, a year later, here I am--with a vertical labret of my own! I didn't decide to get it done until about September when I had moved out to go to college. Its kind of a delayed teenage rebellion, testing boundaries with the 'rents but ... read more

Big stink over nothing!

Well, it all started when I was at a very young age that I was very into piercings. Ever since I have gotten my first cartilage piercing which was when I was 7 I have wanted more and more. So one day I was on researching different piercings and I came across a labret piercing which did not look that bad. From then on I would research loads of information about a labret piercing. Then, that time came when I finally asked my mom about getting my lip pierced. When she did not answer and I was 100% sure she ... read more

bad lip ring

All my life I wanted my lip pierced. All of my friends told me I had the perfect face for it. One day I finally decided to get it done. I went in to the new shop in Norfolk VA called fuzion ink. The girl at the front counter was named Stacy. She had been in Tattoo magazines several times because of her amazing tattoos, she also told me she was assistant manager in the shop. She also told me that she had been doing this for years and I would be fine. I paid her the money and she ... read more

My wonderful birthday present

I have the greatest fiance in the world. Here's my proof: She bought me snakebites for my birthday. Happy 19th, here's some needles and shit. I mean honestly, what better present can you get than a piercing? Great time. Here's the story: On the day before my birthday - June 27th - I got off work at 4pm. We decided it'd be just as good to do it the day before as the day of, and it'd give me another day's worth of healing time, so we discussed it, and decided to go ahead and go get these bad boys ... read more

My Sexy Little DIY Lip Ring Number...

Not to long ago after my 20th birthday I came to the conclusion I needed something a wee bit new to my add to my apperance. I already had a nose ring i did myself, and a tongue ring from two years prior. I love my piercings but i needed something a little more edgey. My first impulse was a hot little eyebrow ring BUT since I tend to wax and pluck that area quite often I had a change of heart. I was running low on options. As much as I love all piercings, I had to choose one ... read more

DIY lip

I've never had good luck when it comes to appointments. A year ago when I first pierced the right side of my lip, I went through three piercer emergencies and cancellations before I actually managed to get the procedure done. Again this summer when I went to get my first tattoo, my best friend who I was going with came down with the flu two days before we were scheduled and it had to be put off a week or so. I'm used to the disappointment. Needless to say, when my best friend called me the day before we were ... read more
