My tongue piercing was a result to me losing a bet with one of my best friends. I have always wanted my tongue pierced but when I was younger I couldn’t get it because my parent would have killed me. Now that I am older and out of my parents house I have tattoos and other piercings but the thought of piercing my tongue pretty much terrified me LOL. Well I ended up losing a bet and I bet that I would get my tongue pierced if I lost and sure enough I lost. After putting the piercing off for about 3 weeks with a laundry list of excuses that I gave my friend for why I couldn’t do it this day or that day. She finally got tired of my excuses, came and picked me up from my house and told me we were going to hang out downtown. Before I knew it, we were pulling up to a tattoo shop, I asked her why we weren’t down town and she said we aren’t going until you get your tongue pierced. I was so scared but I couldn’t show her that so I got out of the car and walked into the shop boldly. I was so scared that I don’t even remember filling out any paperwork to get pierced. The piercer was extremely nice when he was piercing my tongue I was drooling everywhere due to me being so nervous, but he handled all of my drool well LOL he said he was use to women drooling over him. He was great the piercing wasn’t painful either just the swelling after it felt like I wasn’t going to be able to talk right for a while but after a week I was back to normal. My friend video taped the whole thing and ended up putting me on youtube. The experience was great!

I just got my belly button pierced last week after 8 months of convincing my mom that I can take care of it and that I was responsible enough to get it. I just turn 16 in September and my mom promised me that I could get my belly pierced when I turned 16. It took a bit more convincing but I finally got her in the tattoo shop with me to get it pierced. I was so excited when she told me yes that I made my appointment with the piercer in advance. When I got off of work on Friday she was waiting for me and we headed down to the tattoo shop. I was was so excited I took my best friend with me too. When we arrived at the shop they had a piercing promotion where all piercings were 2 for $60. My best friend didn’t have the permission to get anything pierced so surprisingly my mom said she would get something. My mom filled out the paperwork for both of us to get pierced, I got my belly and she got a second hole piercing in her ear. It wasn’t much but it was pretty cool to get pierced with my mom!

I was in my freshmen year of college when I got my first tattoo and I had to save up for so long just to get that done. I have always wanted my cartilage pierced in my ear. Where I was going to school all of the tattoo shops were like $60 for an ear piercing and for me at the time that was a lot of money for a student with no job. So my roommate and I decided that we would do it ourselves. As long as we were sterile what could go wrong right? So we went on ebay and ordered the piercing needles, captive bead rings and aftercare. Once our package came in we were extremely excited the deal was I was going to piercer her helix and she would pierced mine. We had to get gloves from wal-mart and we had our own little piercings station. I sat extremely still as she pushed the needle through my ear, after the needle went through my ear we didn’t quite know how to use the captive bead ring so after about 30 minutes of fighting with the end bead on the captive bead ring my piercing was complete. I still have my helix pierced to this day as well as my old roommate and now best friend each time I look at my ear I think of her.

So I decided to get my industrial pierced one random Friday night it was raining, my friends and I had plans to go out but those plans went sour due to the rain. So what else better to do than stay home in the rain? Go get some new holes and ink in your skin. The four of us headed down to the tattoo shop and it was pretty packed in there LOL. I guess we all had the same idea. My friends were looking through all of the tattoo art work to see what they were going to get, but I didn’t know what I wanted to do. I have a few tattoos but I didn’t want another one I cant take the slow long pain lol so I knew I wanted something pierced, I just didn’t know what. After talking to a few people that were in the shop I decided on the industrial piercing. I was extremely nervous as when I sat down as the piercer was explaining the process of the piercing to me, I don’t deal with pain to well either. When he began to pierce my ear the first hole wasnt too bad but I could hear the cartilage ripping when he pierced the second hole, it didn’t hurt much until the next day it was a bit hot and swollen but it was fine after that. I love changing the bars there are so many cute options.

I got my belly button pierced with my older brother when he went to get a tattoo on his 18 birthday, I was only 16 at the time and I knew that my mom wasn’t going to let me get any other piercings other than my earrings that I’ve had pierced since birth. My brothers tattoo had to be in a hidden spot as well because he knew our parents weren’t going for it. He got his tattoo on his back, I really wanted something extreme I wanted snake bites but I knew I couldn’t do that for a few years lol at least not until I moved out. So I ended up getting my belly button pierced, the piercing itself was pretty quick and it did hurt pretty bad, but not as bad as I expected. The hardest part of my piercing was hiding it from my mom, but I have been successful so far. I have had it pierced for almost a year now, I love the piercing, it has a lot of significance behind it.

I have always loved piercings and tattoos I don’t have many piercings just a few in my ears, and ever since I was in high school I have always wanted to get my tongue pierced. Of course my mom was opposed to the idea soooo.. that never happened. I didn’t do it in college because I needed to get a job after and I also worked during going to college and I didn’t want the piercing to interfere with me getting a job. I studied theater and I have always wanted to work for myself but until I got to that point I needed a job. So due to my circumstances I had to wait until I was 28 to get my tongue pierced, at first I thought that I was to old to get that piercing, its something for young kids to do. After some thought I felt that there was no age requirement on a tongue piercing if I wanted it, then I will get it. I went down to the tattoo shop that I got my last tattoo from to get my piercing. My piercer was great and the piercing was virtually painless. I would advise those getting a tongue piercing to eat before getting it pierced because eating solid food wont happen for a good week :). You will be on a ice-cream and smoothie diet until the swelling goes down and learning how to eat with a tongue ring is a whole new thing to learn. I love my piercing and it was worth the wait.

I am not really one for piercings or tattoos but I fell in love with the septum piercing when I first saw it on a girl in the mall about two years ago. I didnt really get into piercings and tattoos because its seems like everyone has the same type of piercings and I really wanted to be different. I thought about a regular nose piercing but I never had an urge to really go and do it, one because I’m not one for pain and two it seems like everyone has one ya know. So when I saw the septum ring I fell in love, I told me best friend that I had to get that piercings, she thought I was crazy but of course she came with me to do it. I chose a random shop because I don’t have any piercings, I didn’t know where to go. When I got to the shop the piercer was super nice she actually had her septum pierced to and she explained everything to me which made me feel a lot more better about getting a needle through my nose. After I filled out the paperwork I sat down on the piercing table and we were all in the room chatting which really helped with my nervousness. She put the clamps on my nose and bam the piercing was over, it hurt… YES and my nose even ran a lil bit but all together it wasnt bad at all. I love my septum ring!

My story is pretty interesting, I would not advise anyone to do it but hey its all in growing up. My best friend and I had always been obsessed with body piercing, but we were to young to get anything on our own, we were only 16. My bestfriends sister worked in a tattoo shop she was learning how to pierce and also worked the front desk area. Her sister had like everything pierced. At the time I wanted to get my tongue pierced but I knew there was no way that I could hide that from my mom until I went to college, a nose ring was out because once again it could be seen. So I decided to get my second hole pierced, my bestfriends sister actually pierced me at their house, she had access to all the gloves, needles, and jewelry. The piercing wasn’t to bad and it didnt hurt and most of all my mom didnt say much about it. After piercing my second hole I still wanted more, I knew I couldn’t go to extreme with my ears so the next best thing would be my nipple. My bestfriend and I decided that we would each do one nipple like a bestfriend piercing kind of thing. So we went to her older sister and we had to beg and convince her until she got tired of us asking her to pierce us. We finally got her to give in to the piercing, the nipple piercing hurt so bad it was ridiculous. I ended up taking my nipple ring out because it wouldn’t heal properly, probably because I was to young to really take care of the piercing properly. I ended up getting both of my nipples pierced 4 years later.
