(Pierce Me)

[24 Mar 2009|05:34am]

Hi there! Very new to this comm. and I've got some questions:

Self piercing for a Christina piercing (NSFW) is usually frowned upon. But, since I've already had this piercing done once by a professional and it migrated out, I'm looking at other options. Of course, maybe my anatomy isn't set up very well for this type of piercing, and I have considered that, but I'd like to try piercing one more time.

Any advice for setting up a Christina piercing at home? I have sterile jewelry, a sterile needle, and once I prep the area, I will have a sterile piercing zone.

My thoughts: Pierce through the previous scar to enforce the strength of the piercing and ensure that it won't migrate out again... Pierce quickly and cleanly. Epsom salt and warm water will be on standby for a good soaking afterward.

Unfortunately, I don't have a pair of clamps/forceps for this procedure. Are they absolutely necessary?

I'd love to hear from ladies who have done Christina piercings themselves :)

Hi [21 Jul 2008|10:34pm]

I'm planning to do my lip but I've heard that it's hard to get a stud though once you've pieced it with a neddle,obvisly a hollow neddle would be best but I have no way of getting one.Is it possable to pierce my lip with a saftly pin then put a stud in?
sorry if I sound compleatly amiture but I'm sorta new to the whole diy piercing thing,I've done my ears and my nose but I think there proble easyer than lip,
oh and sorry about the bad spelling my english isent verry good

I just got an earring stuck in my cartilage. I don't know how this happened. It kept sinking in. When I finally noticed, the entire stud was inside the skin. I've been trying to pull it out one way or the other. It's a stud earring with a plastic stop. I'm sure I could pull it through, which would require stretching the hole and all. But it hurts so badly. It's a new piercing- not even a week old yet. I have a headache from pulling and I didn't even get it out. What would you do? Is there anything I could take to make it hurt less? Or should I give up and ask a doctor to do it?

tonight or tomorrow morning i want to pierce my medusa, ive researched as much as i can, and just wanted to check over a few things. obviously i dont want to make stupid mistakes,  so i was just wondering if anyone has pierced theirs before and found certain things difficult or something. 

ive done many piercings myself, so im not completely clueless, but have never done any on my lips. ive got the clamps, sterile piercing needle (1.6mm) with cannula, and ive bought a ptfe bar which is currently 44mm in length, and 1.2mm, i chose this mainly because the majority of people, from what ive heard have had swelling, so i can cut this down to a more appropriate size when the swelling goes down (this way i avoid annoying the piercing with changing bars etc, yeah?). has anyone got any criticism on ptfe? or on the gauge? i really want this piercing, and dont want to mess it up over something totally dumb i couldve avoided.

also, (last bit i promise!) has anyone got any pictures on swelling or on self done medusa's? or even scarring after medusa's been taken out? any would be great!

also, so its a little less boring, i glued a ball to my face to see what it looked like...

I just joined! Hip Hip Hooray!
So, here's the deal. I'm flat broke and want a piercing. I've done all 9 of my ear piercings myself and a belly button piercing which I let close up. I've had my nose pierced and my center bottom lip pierced which were done professionally. I'm SO ready for another and not sure what I wanna do. From this list what do you think would be the safetest to do with a 14g hollowed needle (sterilized in an unopened package of course) & fastest to heal?

I myself like the thought of an industrial but don't know if it would be to hard for me to do myself. What do you guys think?

ahhh! [24 May 2006|12:34am]

I totally just re-pierced my VCH myself.

It's been closed for a few weeks... maybe a month by now. Not totally closed (you can still see where the hole is, and there was a bit of the hole on each side, but not enough to slide jewelry through)... and I was talking about my piercing at work, and started missing it, so I definitely just re-pierced it.

Took the 14ga jewelry and pushed that through... took about an hour of slow, careful pushing mixed with cooling with ice and checking in a mirror to actually get it all the way through. There wasn't as much pain as when I first got it pierced, because I took my time and did it so gradually.

I know this probably wasn't the best way to re-pierce it... and I'm definitely going to clean it extrawell, but are there other precautions I should take??

PS I'm proud - I've never done anything like that myself before. Even though it was just repiercing.

Okay- I have a sewing needle and a nickel-free earring.

Can I pierce my lip with it? Or bad idea? What should I watch out for (like, you know, major veins and stuff)?

Thank you!

I am thinking about piercing my tounge.
All my friends tell me it dosent hurt that much. And I have tryed once before but I only did it half way and didn't have a tounge ring. But now I have a tounge ring. So I am thinking about doing it. I have been wanting it for awhile now. Just never had the tounge ring to do it. I am not quite sure what I am going to pierce it with. Do I need a hollow needle? Or can I just use a normal one? Well any ways leave me comments to help. thanks

I just did another cartilage piercing. This time I didn't even bother with the needle-- I just kept pinching it until it went in. The needle just adds unnecessary blood and pain. However, it's still throbbing. Well, as expected :P So I'm up to 10 ear piercings-- 8 of which I did myself, and I reopened about half of them in the time my mom last saw me. I can't wait to see her reaction!!!

yo! I'm new here! I've been self-piercing my ears for two years. I just shove a sewing needle in, wear earrings, then sometimes they get infected and I close up and start over. Currently I had 4 lobe piercings and I was just in the bathroom doing my first cartilage piercing! I put in a turtle earring- it actually looks kind of cute.

I'm thinking of self-piercing my nose now. I've always used sewing needles because I'm kinda broke and can't afford to buy the stuff ): Has anyone ever done it? What precautions do I need to take so I don't like... hit a major vein or anything? I'm kinda clueless about facial piercings-- I've never tried it before. So, any advice would be helpful. thanks!

and nice to meet you all!
