Smelly Piercings? [23 Sep 2004|11:13am]

This is a funny, slightly embarrasing query but i've talked to a few other people who have had this problem with piercings on other spots of their body.

I had my lip re- pierced through scar tissue, and with a ring two gauges bigger than previously (first was a 16, now a 14) and it has that icky smell. It's not super strong, it's just that i find the smell very offensive and since it's pretty close to my nose, hard to ignore. Besides the fact i find it unappealing i am afraid that if i'm kissing someone that they will notice it as well.

Do you think that if i try another ring it might help? I think that maybe having it pierced through scar tissue (there was a hard spot that they had to really push through) im thinking that dead skin and stuff has just worked itself out of there with time and i'm planning to take this ring out, buy a new one, and clean the peircing really well in between.

Has anyone else had this or simlar problems? Any suggestions?

I currently have 7 piercings:
Side of lip [left]
Septum [8g]
Lobes [9/16" and 00]

I have plans for the near future - when i have money! Got a few designs for a couple of tattoos but I figure I may as well wait for them. No point in trying to rush out when I'm not old enough (18 in a matter of months) and could end up regretting it.

Nipple piercing experience [26 Apr 2004|10:23pm]

[ mood | awake ]

After a hectic afternoon, I was running late to my appointment with Angel. I lucked out with a primo parking spot - right in front of the studio - which in the French Quarter on a Friday night is a miracle in itself.
I went in, talked with Angel, picked out my jewelry, she confirmed that I had ate something in the past 3 hours and I waited for her to finish up a PA discussion with a client.
My friend arrived (for moral support) and it was time to get with it. I was calm, not nervous as I thought I would be - and went up to the piercing room and took off my shirt and bra and sat in the magic chair. After another discussion, and an exam by Angel, I was ready - holding Matty's hand and talking. First she clamped it a bit - ow...then told me to take a deep breath....next thing I know, Matty is squeezing MY hand and there is a sharp, deep but very quick pain - and it was done. That simple - that easy. I hardly had time to say OUCH. The ring was in, and she was applying a cool pack to the nipple (mmmm) and discussing aftercare with me before I knew what hit me.
SHe offered me a candy - because I was such a good girl - and I left with a beautiful ring in my left nipple.
The sea salt soaks really do speed healing time.
Provon is a great after-care cleaner for the healing period, easy to use and effective.
Wearing a bra really is more comfortable than not - even when sleeping.
My best advice would be to adhere to the aftercare instuctions completely - without fail, and just be paitent about healing time. So far I have not had one problem with mine and I am soon to get the other side done!

Hi, new here! [26 Apr 2004|04:33pm]

[ mood | curious ]

I have a total of 13 piercings, once long ago it was 15; before my barbells migrated from my eyebrow. :-(

I have 4 in one ear, 5 in the other, one in my nose, one in each nipple and one in my navel.

I also have one tattoo. <3 to have more, but food and rent comes first. I am 23 and my first ear piercings occurred when I was 6 months old.

the rush of anticipation, the pinch of the clamps, the comfort of the needle, the rush of euphoriaCollapse )

I got my first tattoo when I was 18. I had promised myself that I wouldn't get anymore. But this past august when I had another tattoo done on my left arm. I am soon going to get the tattoo on my left arm covered up. Probably with a cowgirl. And maybe alittle daisy on my lower back with some fairy's or somethin cause its just soooooooo pretty....I'm kidding.

Weeeee I'm addicted [25 Apr 2004|08:47pm]

[ mood | dorky ]

I'm addicted to tattoos and peircings. I have 3 body peircings and 2 in my ears, and I have 3 tattoos. I'll post some pictures under a lj cut so I don't kill everyones friends page.

I would have more, but since I am super broke and like 300 in the hole. I don't see that one happening anytime soon!

I go to Intradermal Designs in Denton, Texas to get ALL of my tattoos. I love them, they are great, and since it is illegal in Oklahoma to get tattoos, I have to go somewhere!!

I'd share some stories with every tattoo/peircing because they all have some.. but you all will have to wait.

Everything starts with a needle...Collapse )

I will be the first to post, since I am the one trying to start this community (and asking YOU to post).
I love tats, piercings and body modifications - and I thought that it would be fun to have a place to read about others with the same interest.
I got my first below the neck piercing last month - and I know that more are soon to come!
I would love to see pics of others tats, piercings, or reviews on the experience - even a shameless plug for your favorite artist.
Here is the one who did mine:
Rings of Desire
