Jestrum / Vertical Medusa

First story, probably won't be the greatest but here we go~ I've had many piercings ( nape, sternum, cheeks, septum, bridge, medusa, snakebites, and a microdermal ) I still have my dermal, cheeks and nape. I decided I wanted to get a piercing that would go nicely with my cheek piercings, because I was getting bored of my septum ring. So I thought about it for a really long time, and I considered getting my medusa re-done. It has been about a year and a half since I got it done the first time, but I was forced to take ... read more

My Long Awaited Septum Piercing

I have wanted my septum pierced for about 6 months but have admired it for about 7 years. I used to work in a pharmacy, around a lot of sick people so I decided not to force my body to heal a piercing if I might get ill. A while ago I quit that job to start my own small business and decided I had to finally get my septum pierced. That was 4 days ago now. I went to Urban Piercings in Reading as I had spoken to Adam and Lian via email to ask a few questions about ... read more

My Horizontal Lobes

I was always wanting an ear piercing but not just any ear piercing: I wanted something I had never seen before. That came in the form of a horizontal lobe. I was browsing galleries upon galleries of pictures until I see it. I instantly wanted it but was put off due the shape of my ear, it seemed that all the pictures had lobes that never touched their face ( and mine did ) so I basically dismissed the idea. Time went by and I still hadn't got a new piercing that I was happy with. I was really getting ... read more

My Industrial, My First Piercing

I grew up in a pretty liberal home. My mother and I were very open, I never really had a curfew and I was allowed to get a tattoo at the age of 16 provided it wasn’t in a visible area. My mother had my ear lobes pierced when I was a few months old with a gun at one of those horrible little mall kiosks so I figured that I would be allowed to get a few more piercings with no objections. I was wrong. My mother seemed to think that tattoos were acceptable but piercings weirded her out. ... read more

Finally, I got my inner conch

For about 5 or 6 years I had always wanted my nose pierced. I only had one hole in each ear, and they were done when I was a baby. I am terrible with shots at the doctor, so needless to say I was TERRIFIED at the idea of getting my nose pierced. I read stories on here and I knew people who had it done, so I knew it wasnt that bad. But piercings were an uncharted territory for me. I had no idea what to expect. One day my sister came home with a nape piercing, and my ... read more

10g Septum pierced and repierced

I had my septum pierced about three years ago at a shop in the San Fernando Valley in California. I was unfamiliar with any shops in the area so I called around for quotes. They ranged from $15 to $60 for a septum piercing, no jewelry included. I know that the $60 shops won't necessarily be any better than the the one that quoted $15 but rather than price, I went more toward a referral. It's common body modification advice to walk into a shop, get a feel for it, and if it feels wrong find another. I was referred ... read more

I Love Ears: A Tragus Tale

I have always liked ears and the variety of piercings that people get in them. So, it was no surprise when the tragus caught my eye. Two of my friends have their tragii pierced and a girl that just transferred from our school posted pictures of her fresh tragus adorned with the cutest heart shaped stud. I decided that I wanted my tragus pierced too and started to do my research. I even put together a PowerPoint to ask my mom, who told me years ago after my second lobe piercings "no more ear piercings". I pulled out all the ... read more

Do Your Research - Nose Piercing

I think that I had better start by setting the scene...I was just 18 and I had wanted my nose pierced since I was 14 but respected my parents wishes to be 18 first. It was the summer holidays and I decided it was time. I knew of a tattoo parlour on the high street that is always busy and looked very clean (and hygiene certificates on show). I went in and asked if they did a drop in service for piercings. As they did I paid up. The parlour is very small and was full at the time so ... read more

A Needle and Thread DIY

Allow me to start by saying that I do strongly believe that you should see professionals for any type of body modification. DIY piercings can be done, and properly, but there a far greater number of risks. I consider myself very fortunate to have been without complication, but I wouldn’t pierce anything other than my ears by myself. Well, I had quit my job, and have no funds for, well, anything. I was seriously considering going to World Domination, which is the closest, cheapest place to go (they have a pretty bad rep, but its more for creepiness than uncleanliness; ... read more

Tongue Piercing

I had my tongue pierced about 5 weeks ago and I absolutely love it! I've had a few piercings before (lobes x2, cartilage on ear and nose twice as I put some dodgy jewellery in it the first time round and had to let it close up) but my tongue was going to my my next big one. I'd wanted it done since I was about 16 - I am now 18 - but my parents hated it and had said no. A few people I knew from college had it done though, as did my boyfriend, and I was ... read more
