Small needles, big thrills.

I left work one Saturday afternoon and hopped on the bus to go and see my friends Julien, Ella, and Nick at their apartment. We had made plans to see Ella perform a fireshow at a local fetish club called Funhouse that night, and I was quite excited for the show. When I arrived at their apartment, Nick was sitting on a couch with a box of 25g play piercing needles in front of him. I laughed a bit, because I remembered when he first moved in with Ella and Julien a couple of weeks before, he literally shuddered at ... read more

my long overdue superman suspension

Well I have been wanting to try a suspension for a long time and about 3 months ago I decided to not just want to do one but to actually stop talking and do one. So,one day I drove to my piercers shop and told them that I really wanted to try a lift and they said they would do one for me although they normally only do this for close friends they liked me(I am a repeat customer of many times)and most likely didn't take me too serious anyway. Well,I told them of my date(sept. 7th)it was about three ... read more

Further Adventures in Corseting: Play Piercing my Back

Earlier this year I was fortunate enough to experience my first play piercing session, an account of which can be found here. After such a positive introduction I was keen to expand into further corseting projects - in particular a full back piercing, something which I had always admired and yet at the time of SCUK felt unable to attempt. By now I was regularly corresponding with Prodigy, the person largely responsible for my introduction to play piercing. I explained that I wanted to do a traditional back corseting and he once more offered his services. This pleased me immensely, ... read more

Finally, an opportunity

I've been curious about play piercing for quite some time, but never had an opportunity to practice it safely, either by myself or with a partner until recently. I didn't have the means to aquire needles, didn't want to order online, and didn't want to do anything stupid either. So I just figured that was one aspect of body play I likely wouldn't get to experience for a while, if ever. Then the fates smiled on me. I work at a university, in the biology building and have for quite some time, so I've developed friendships with a lot of ... read more

Opening my eyes. A Burning Swing Adventure.

I'm sick and tired of not doing anything because people either break plans or for some reason things just don't work out, I was really pushing the idea of going to Vermont! I loved the idea of getting away without the kids. I really admire the artwork behind the mods and couldn't wait to get my hermit husband out of the house! Friday night I got done working at 12 a.m., hurried to get changed into some comfy clothes, climb into the truck and off we went! I always try to stay awake for the long rides, but that doesn't ... read more

Twenty-seven minutes as Superman

My name is Mike, and you'll find me on iam.bmezine.com as hypermike. Before I tell about my suspension, let me explain why I wanted to do this. In January 2003, I was diagnosed with a degenerative nerve disease called Multiple Sclerosis. While I'm on some great therapy, the past eight months have been a lot of "can't do" experiences. I can't over-exert myself. I shouldn't put on any more weight. I have to be more careful in some situations because I have a lack of balance at times and might fall. Frankly, I was tired of being afraid, and I ... read more

My first suspension, a 10 point superman

I write this a month and a half after my first suspension and 3 days after my second one. I meant to write this a lot sooner but the time has given me some more perspective as well as enabling me to sort out (as much as I am able to) what exactly the suspension was like for me. I will start off with a little background. The day before I had gotten home from the BMEfest in Tweed. I saw my first live suspensions there and they were so incredible to watch. I had wanted to do one for ... read more

Getting high...a second suicide.

"Oh man! I can see the fucking sea!" It wasn't supposed to be that funny, just a statement, but the people crashed out at the third Metal Fatigue Suspension Convention seemed pretty amused. That cherry picker was a fantastic idea! I was handed a camera to try get a picture. As I dangled a good few meters off the floor, with four reasonable sized hooks protruding through my skin and attached to a towering crane, an old couple came into view on the little patch of pavement I could see out onto. I waved. You know, like you do. One ... read more

The Burning Swing Festival through the eyes of Code Zero

I wasn't even sure if I wanted to go, I have a fear of people not liking me, or making fun of me, I am a large guy after all. I kicked around the idea of not going and weighted it off of whether or not my piercer mwm416 and his girlfriend tatjanaturtle were going to go. I am beyond glad that my wife talked me into going. This was going to be our first BME event, our first time seeing a suspension in person and our first time mingling with some highly modified people. Friday, August 29th 2003. I ... read more

A world of your own is your only escape

In the eight years I have been into body modification I hadn't realized the different things that branch off of scarification, piercing and tattooing. For a good part of those years I didn't really know anyone into it. Piercing will always be my main interest in body modification. I felt I was missing something but I didn't know what. I came across a book on "ball dancing". Interesting but wasn't what I was looking for. I remember I was sitting watching Ripley's Believe It Or Not a few years back. Just before the commercial they gave a preview on what ... read more
