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

That eBay seller sure sucks (my ear stretching journey)

It first started around July 2009, when two of my friends and I went with one other of our friends to get his ear pierced. Obviously, I was persuaded to do it along with him. We went to a Vietnamese salon in the AAA mall near the shadier part of Brampton. Yes, I now know I'm not supposed to, but I got it done with a gun. I suggest nobody else do the same. I had always thought about stretching my ears, as they've intrigued me since I saw my sister get them when she was in grade eight. I ... read more

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

Micro-Dermal Implant

I recently had a micro-dermal implanted on my sternum, it was done with a 14g needle, it was explained to me that some people use dermal punches and how that process goes, then it was explained to me how using the needle goes. The process with the needle seemed more appealing to me. I opted for the needle because the procedure seemed to cause little trauma and as little cutting as possible. We spent a decent amount of time marking it out around ten to fifteen minutes, making sure that it was centered and looked good with my tattoos. After ... 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

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

I'm getting my clavicle pierced. Does that sound dirty?

It's Thanksgiving and everyones talking about shopping on Black Friday. Ugh, I hate Black Friday with a passion - everything is the same price it would be on a normal sale day! As everyone talked about shopping I was the one who threw in the air the idea of maybe getting a piercing I have been wanting to get for FOREVER now. I really didn't think I would go through with it. I didn't know any tattoo/piercing parlors around the area. Only ones were in Grand Rapids (about 30-45 minutes away) -- I really wasn't wanting to drive that far ... read more

my first true love - homemade spiderbites!

The first time I saw snakebites I was about thirteen (I think!!) and at first I thought "ewww, gross that must have been so painful!" but as I started to see more and more of them I began to think "hmmm, maybe they're not so bad, maybe they're cool" then I actually began to really like them. However I always wanted original piercings and snakebites (where I live anyway) were really common. So when I was doing more research on the internet and I came across spiderbites I instantly fell in love with them. I am only fifteen so I ... 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
