Shaking, bleeding and crying in the bathroom stall.

One day, I was on the phone with a close friend. She had been talking about piercing her smiley and her web, and also piercing her lip again. Of course, being irrational as she is, she took it upon herself to pierce her bottom lip, and to pierce her smiley. I had been researching piercings for quite a while, but never quite made up my mind about what I wanted. You see, living with strict European parents can be quite a challenge if you want to get multiple facial piercings. They would never let me do even my nose, at ... 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

Piercing my Nostril myself

Hi, I'm 15 years old and I've always been really interested in body piercing. I had three ear lobe piercings done professionally, and I had my ear cartilage piercing done about 4 months ago professionally. My parents thought the cartilage piercing was the last piercing I would ever get. That wasn't exactly my intention as far as they knew. The next piercing I was hoping to get was my nostril. I always thought of it to be cute, and beautiful, not trashy like my parents think. I knew that if I asked my parents to take me to get it ... read more

Sixteen 18g surface piercings, one corset.

I like to jump into scary new things and then deal with the consequences. This generally works out in my favor. Sometimes, I get in over my head; sometimes, it's a successful new experience that I'm proud to have gone through. A sixteen-point corset, done for a photo shoot, was fortunately the latter. I had traveled to Kansas City, Missouri this November 2009 to shoot and hang out with awesome photographers and models. One of the models is a most kick-ass professional piercer: Heather LeStabbityDeath, who pierces at Lasting Impressions in Des Moines, Iowa. I had idly said that in ... read more

Venomous Venoms. =)

====== Before Hand ======== Okay, so I had always had my eye on a central tongue piercing, ever since i was about 16. As a guy though, my parents weren't really up for it, they didn't like piercings in general but told me that when I was 18 I could do what I liked. Success. So I waited until I was 18, and threw the idea at them again. I got the "you live under our roof, you live under our rules". Since I was still living with them, and was dependant on them for my college fees, I figured ... 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

Tongue Web

It was the beginning of the school year. In the summer I had gotten two new piercings. My nose, and my top ear. I walked into my school and felt original, since no one else had these piercings. But I was missing something. I wanted another piercing. I heard that these girls in my grade were piercing their tongue webs. I had never heard of that piercing, so I decided to look it up on BME. When I saw it, I fell in love. I researched the piercing more, and looked up how to do it at home. Then I ... 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

Collarbone Microdermals

I've been interested in the body modification world for years now, I've always enjoyed getting piercings. I've had quite a few piercings before getting these, mostly minor ones. I've had my lip done three times, but the other piercer placed it wrong and it migrated to the point that I just took it out. I've also had my smiley pierced a few times along with four earlobe piercings with one set gaged to 2. Along with my cartilage twice. Overall I believe im thoroughly addicted to getting pierced, and I have plans for a whole set of about eight Micros. ... 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
