Painless tongue piercing

I don't even know how I got it into my head to pierce my tongue - I'd had my ears done twice and ended up taking and leaving both out after a head X-ray (broken jaw), and then for some reason I went straight to this. I always thought it looked cool and might be entertaining to fiddle with in my perpetual ADD boredom (honestly nothing dirty was a motivation for me). I heard so many horror stories about tongues swollen to grotesque sizes, inability to talk or eat, having to sleep sitting up... I told my friend C, who ... read more

Simple Earlobes, Right And Wrong

I've loved stretched ear lobes since the first time I saw them, it's so much more personal because of the patience it takes to get there, rather than seeing all the people who went to Claire's for their 18g. I decided to get my start and have them pierced. At first, I went on the recommendation of a friend to another studio in Calgary besides Tribal Expression. I had been to Tribal for my labret and loved the experience there, but it is pricey; this was my first wrong. If you're going to mod your body in any way, even ... read more

My favorite piercing!

After months of wanting my tongue pierced, I finally decided to get it done. I had researched tongue piercings for a couple of weeks and the pros outweighed the cons. I had gotten my tragus pierced at a tattoo/piercing shop about five months before but the place I went to was kind of sketchy so I wanted to find a different establishment to get my tongue piercing at. I had heard through a couple of friends that Pour Boiz was a really great place for tattoos and piercings because the employees really know what they are doing. A friend of ... read more

Lucky 13

Here I am, with a shitfaced grin, a bottle of 91% isopropyl alcohol, a piercing needle, and an eyebrow ring. No, I am not drunk, the shitfaced grin is just in anticipation of what I am about to do. I have brushed my teeth, drank a bunch of water, eaten, washed my whole face with rubbing alcohol, put the kid I was babysitting to bed, and sat here reading about the supraorbital nerve (the nerve that is the reason that countless web pages and people and such say don't pierce your eyebrow unless you're a trained professional, cause if you ... read more

My tragus experience.

So basically I had wanted to have this done since i was about fifteen years old. Back then i assumed I would need parental consent, something i KNEW my parents would never allow. Piercings in their eyes are for uncouth individuals and certainly not for their only daughter. Once I had reached eighteen and left home for University i just assumed i was too much of a geek to do something so reckless. Time passed and before I knew it I was twenty. I knew I wanted to get it done before my twenty first birthday and April is obviously ... read more

Diary of a tongue piercing

When I was seventeen, I wanted to get my tongue pierced. So I researched it, put some tongue bars in my wishlist at bodyjewelleryshop.com, went to a piercing studio and had my tongue checked. I was told I had too many veins. If I was pierced, I wouldn't stop bleeding. Broken hearted, I left the studio, emptied my wishlist at bodyjewelleryshop.com, and deleted my saved web pages. That should be the end of the story, yes? Well...no. Otherwise, this diary wouldn't exist. I got my tongue web pierced. I liked it, of course I did. The experience is on Bmezine ... read more

My New Piercing

About 3 years ago, I knew I had a love for piercings. At 13, I loved tattoos, 14, scarification, implants.. awesome.. At 15, now, I would love to be part of the body modification world. Looking through pictures on "Extreme Body Mods" I came across a picture of a smiley, Instantly, I was in love. I loved the idea of it being near enough hidden, unless you smile or laugh.. Your little secret piercing.. I was desperate for one. Having had 3 piercing kits before, I rathered someone with more experience than a 15 year old to do it. Begging ... read more

Love the look - hated the healing

I had been fascinated by body modifications since college, but was hesitant to actually go through with it. My only two piercings, previously, were in my ears. My mom had gotten me pierced at four years old in some random chair at the entrance to JC Penney, I think. It wasn't the most pleasant memory as that piercing gun made some pretty scary noise to my little ears. Since my childhood, though, I had met some pretty interesting people with some even more interesting modifications. I had high school friends with wrist tattoos and eyebrow piercings, college friends with nipple ... read more

My second and third DIY piercings!

Last month I wrote about my very first DIY piercing experience (which was my right cartilage) and now I am back to write about my newest piercings! You can read my first story here: http://www.bme.com/pierce/01-ear/A91102/earmyver.html. My name is Sarah and I am 16 years old. I have a total of 10 piercings, which include: first lobes, second lobes, third lobes (what this story is about), right tragus, left cartilage, right cartilage and bellybutton. Last week I was sitting in my math class (again) talking to my two friends. We started talking about piercings and my friend (not the same one ... read more

I fainted, and it was entirely my fault.

I arrived at blue banana half an hour before I was going to get pierced, because they needed to sterilize the jewellery they were using for my navel piercing. I was asked to fill out a form and show a form of identification. After this the deputy manager of the store asked if I had eaten lunch that day, I lied and told him I had, which was my major mistake regarding this piercing. He advised me to have a sugary drink and return to the store in 30 minutes. I paid for the piercing, and headed to a newsagents ... read more
