1st piercing (nipples)

anted to share this story, especially for everyone out there who is contemplating getting their first piercing. DO IT, you'll be hooked, pardon the pun.... I decided to get both my nipples pierced. I looked around on the internet and Perforations in Washington, D.C. was not only the closest member of the A.P.P., but their website was very interesting as well. Everyone was great, from the first phone call, to leaving the shop. I have to be honest, as my husband and I pulled up, he had a strange look on his face and said, "I don't know if I ... read more

eyebrow piercing @ forbidden fruit

been mulling over the idea of getting a facial piercing of some sort for literally years. Both my earlobes were pierced twice, both times with a piercing gun. The first set when I was 11, at a pediatrican's office. My mother had not told me she was going to let me have `em done beforehand, so I was completely freaked and couldn't sit still and they came out uneven. The second time, I was 20 years old and on my honeymoon in Ocean City, Maryland, walking around on the boardwalk while my husband slipped into a video arcade to get ... read more

Colie's Tragus Piercing Experience

t was my 20th birthday and I was sitting around feeling sorry for myself and browsing through the pictures on BME to get some ideas for my next piercing, it was a toss-up between a tongue pierce and a tragus. I rounded some friends up for support and headed to the Enchanted Dragon, where I had gotten my nipple and navel pierced, I figured that I could decide there. Well on the drive there one of my friends managed to talk me out of the tongue. I figured that would be a hard one to hide from my parents anyway ... read more

My Secret Nipples

I used to think that tattoos and piercings were disgusting. I was raised to think that way. My ears were gun-pierced when I was 9 months old, at the pediatrician's office. I went through a time where I didn't even want to wear earrings. Now I generally sport a stud with a chain on one side and a chained stud and earcuff on the other, much to the dislike of my parents. Soon, I hope to add at least a few more ear pierces. When I was 12 or so, my cousin went and got his tongue pierced, in three ... read more

Do your ears hang low?- A (long) stretching experience

efore I get started, I want to give a disclaimer. I do not advise anyone to use my methods or time spans when stretching their lobes. I know I went too fast, but I also know my body very well, and these methods workedfor me, without any difficulties that I consider serious. They may not do the same for you. Thank you, drive through }:). With that out of the way, I can get on with my experience. I just recently finished stretching my ear lobes to 1" in slightly over one year. Last year, I decided that the french ... read more

Septum by Crystal Cross

've had this fantasy of piercing my septum for some time now. A septum pierce is my second favorite pierce, after a P.A. What I especially like about the septum pierce is it makes a wicked point of attachment, and if placed correctly, balances and enhances the harmony of the face. Also, it doesn't require a lot of after care, heals very quickly--usually within 4 to 8 weeks--and can be stretched easily and rapidly. After getting my P.A. at the end of July, I no longer had an excuse not to get my septum pierced. So I made an appointment. ... read more

My Nipple@Perforations

n the recent months I have undergone changes. My first piercing experience was at Perforations in Washington D.C. I had been thinking about getting my nipple pierced and one day I just said what the hell and went to Perforations by way of the Metro Rail. I arrived at Perforations and met with Jason. He talked to me in a very professional manner and proceeded to explain the Nipple Piercing. Once I picked out the Jewelry (A 5/8 12 Black Nobium Ring) I began filling out the paper work. Then all went really bad. They asked me for my Drivers ... read more

Earlobe Stretching

I have played around with piercing my ears for many years and have had almost every portion pierced at one point or another. This was usually done somewhat temporarily as my preferred method was to just run another safety pin through wherever I felt like having a piercing at the time. Eventually I stopped wearing earrings for awhile because of my increasing involvement in physical activities which made them liabilities (karate, rugby, etc.). This resulted in all but the two oldest and most used holes (one in each lobe) closing up completely. Late in '96 I began to feel that ... read more

Nipple Piercing by Ardvark of r.a.b.

fter frequenting rec.arts.bodyart for a while, I still had many questions about piecings, so looking for someone knowledgeable, I e-mailed Ardvark, the r.a.b. FAQ maintainer, and soon began e-mailing each other back and forth over the course of almost a year, and I credit her for a great majority of my piercing knowledge, however she still lived in VA at the time, and I was in WA, but I wanted someday to be pierced by her. When she gave me word she would be moving to the San Francisco area, I was thrilled! During my senior year in high school, ... read more

I have an appointment to have my nipple pierced?

"Hi! I have an appointment to have my nipple pierced?" I said brightly to the man standing behind the counter. He smiled welcomingly and asked if it would be my first. When I told him yes, he went into his speel of the health and feeding of a piercing, closing with proper cleaning. "We recommend you should use a cleaning agent. Do you have any Hiberclens?" He asked. "And are you allergic?" My research had not covered this and I stood there looking a little perplexed. I was armed with a lot of book knowledge and little else. Actually, nothing ... read more
