Another microdermal story.

Microdermals underneath my collarbones interested me as soon as I saw the article on BME. I'd dismissed the idea of surface piercings there because the inevitable rejection wasn't particularly appealing - and due to how I sleep and how much I'd knock them, I was certain it wouldn't work out for more than a few uncomfortable months. So, microdermals seemed like the perfect solution. I didn't go into this expecting to keep them forever though. I waited for a few months to make sure I really wanted them, during which Holier Than Thou began to offer them to customers and ... read more

Scalp Piercing (the toni?).

I have fairly recently fallen in love with body modification (within the last year or so). I have always been fascinated with piercings and tattoos, but my knowledge of them and other mods was little to none; it was just interesting. I met Damien, an experienced piercing artist, who became my gateway into the community. Since meeting and befriending him my knowledge of body modification has expanded greatly, specifically with piercings. I have gotten a fair number of piercings since then, but each time I want to do something a little different. As most people interested in modification say, it ... read more

Pretty Little Pain in the Neck

Pretty Little Pain in the Neck Getting my first surface piercing was semi-planned and semi-spontaneous. I'd been toying with the idea for awhile and the girlfriend and I were driving past a studio where I had been pierced before. I didn't think it would be open; it's a Monday after all. But they were and that was it my mind was made up. The guy (whose name turned out to be Jan) pierced my ears lobes about two years ago and I had no reservations about going back to him. He's a really relaxed cat and didn't mind me asking ... read more

Piercing de surface facial

Je voulais me faire piercer le tragus mais les miens étant trop petits (he oui ça existe!), je ne pouvais pas. J'ai donc décidé de me faire piercer un surface facial juste devant le tragus (du côté droit de mon visage). Ayant eu une mauvaise expérience avec mon ancien pierceur, j'ai décidé d'en choisir un nouveau et voilà que je passais tous les jours devant UnderMySkin. Des qu'on entre on est mis au parfum grâce a une petite fiche: les règles d'hygiènes sont affichées, matériel à usage unique et tout... Bref j'arrive ce mercredi (07/11), après une petite attente le ... read more

my first piercing...my nape

I was fourteen and had been wanting piercings for as long as I could remember. I lived in a small country town where the body modification scene was not understood. My dad was into the whole redneck thing and didn't want me to be a freak. I begged and begged him to let me get my tongue piercing but that is one thing he wouldn't do. So I got on BMEZINE.com to look for ideas to talk my dad into it. While I was looking I ran into the surface piercings and fell in love with the neck piercing. I ... read more

Frankenstein Microdermals

I have never been, nor expect to be, an extraordinary member of the body modification community. I've had a few piercings and a small tattoo on my wrist, but never anything that has really warranted someone passing me in the street to stop, point and gasp loudly. But even so, I have always been proud of my piercings, and I enjoy explaining the meaning behind my tattoo. The only problem I had was that I had seen every one of my piercings on other people. Although out of my immediate group of friends I was the most modified, I didn't ... read more

The Madison. My Journey…and its’ end.

About four months ago now I made the decision to embark on my surface piercing journey. I deliberated over which piercing to get and why, finally settling on one that I've always loved the look of, ever since first seeing it on BMEzine. My poison? The Madison. After thoroughly researching all aspects of this awesome piercing, the how and why, what to use and the freakishly high rate of rejecting I decided to go through with it. Completely accepting that it really isn't a "forever" piercing. So off I went to my usual shop, in all honesty not completely stress ... read more

The best thing I've ever done with my body - Cleavage Bar

About five or six months ago, I started looking through some pictures on BME, looking for a piercing that would work for me. I needed something somewhat discrete so that it could be hidden for work, but I could still show it off when I wasn't at work. I was also a bit worried about what my parents would say, but I figured if they didn't agree with it, I'd just keep it covered so they wouldn't have to look at it. In all my searching, I came across the cleavage bar. I saw it and I knew that it ... read more

My First Microdermal (and definitely not my last)

I've been interested in body modification for a good few years now; I have various piercings, and more recently (after turning 18) have acquired several tattoos. I recently moved to Chester, and 'The Piercing Bodz' caught my eye. A lot of the piercing places I've visited in the past have been primarily tattoo studios offering piercing on the side. The idea of a piercing-only studio really appealed to me. Like I said, I'd recently moved and wanted to check out as many places as I could before I had another piercing. I'd been contemplating a surface piercing on my temple ... read more

My first Corset piercing

I've been piercing for about three years, and have discovered most people only want you to give them a piercing if you can tell them you've done "lots" of that exact piercing before on other people. That makes a lot of since from the point of the person getting pierced, however makes it hard for a newer piercer to learn the more unique procedures. A lot of piercers probably have wives/girlfriends willing to get practiced on, but in my case my wife hates pain and is not a huge piercing fan. Also practicing on ones self can only go so ... read more
