These nape piercings are my babies

I remember the first time that I saw a nape piercing. It was about six years ago when I was 13. I was with a group of friends on South Street in Philadelphia and we were talking to a guy who was in his early twenties he said something about his newest piercing. Then he turned around and showed us the barbell in his neck. I think we all let out a collective gasp. None of us had even imagined that such a thing was possible before. I was part terrified and part fascinated. I like piercing before but this ... read more

I have always had a deep interest in piercing. That's what brought me here to bme. I go on bme so often and learn more and more every day about the piercing world. One day while I was looking at pictures I saw a picture of a female with the base of her neck pierced. Originally I was amazed that it looked like a necklace. It looked absolutely beautiful. It complimented her neck, her shoulders and collarbone well. I started to research for more pictures of this piercing and usually on everybody they looked absolutely beautiful. A few months past ... read more

kitty nipples, a surface bar experience

everyone has a part of their body they like, and would like to accentuate. for me its always been my torso. So when I found out about things like surface piercings and art implants I was really excited. for about a year or 2 I was kind of shopping around for someone to do surface piercings on my side, to accentuate my ribs. I was afraid I didn't have enough skin to do it and that I would have to abandon the idea. I also thought I would have to get the piercings with ptfe flexible barbells, and this always ... read more

The day I became a grenade

My day as a grenade.Well, the events leading up to my day as a grenade would help to give more detail into how much this experience hurt, not just physically, but emotionally. I have never been the type to have to think about getting a piercing, it just kinda comes to me like having Mc Donalds comes to others. I just get the idea, and follow through with my first instinct, which is, GET A HOLE IN YOU FOOL.So I was driving home one day and passed Psychedelic Shack, and thought to myself " hm, I haven't had any work ... read more

Madisons can leave a bruse..

When you work in a tattoo studio you get a chance to experence more piercings than a normal person, be it seeing them done or having them done. A few nights ago I watched Billy pierce my room mates madison. I decide that I could not have my room mate, a tattooist, having a 'cooler' piercing then me so I decided to have Bill do mine a few nights later. I had been feeling that itch for a while and really needed a new piercing but didn't know what to do. I am getting my nipples done soon but want ... read more

I got my first body piercing when I was 20 years old. With my extreme nature I choose to recieve a prince albert. It turned out perfect, and the piercer that did this was Jamie Mills.
