Well, I did it. I got the Prince Albert done. I officially have a #SkeweredRudeBit, and despite what you might hear about the procedure its actually not that painful. Probably about a 4/10 on the pain scale for me anyway.
I'd been thinking about getting it done for a few months and then one day while I was at work I just decided "Tonight is the night". So I finished work, drove home, sent my mate Adam an SMS asking if he'd like to come with me (and essentially to hold my hand lol) and that was it; picked him up from his place and headed down to the piercing studio. I wandered in, said hi and told them what I was after. We had a bit of laugh as one of my work colleagues girlfriend works there, and he's friends with piercer & his apprentice. When they asked if the apprentice could watch, I said yeah, asked if it was cool for my mate to watch, and then asked my mates GF if she would would like to watch which she politely declined.
It was a little scary at first with the realization that a couple of bits of metal are about to be shoved through the end of my bell end but it wasn't painful, more uncomfortable due to the fact they had to hold things, and pinch it touchy spots.
Now, I also have 3 Sub Dermal piercings (also known as Skin Divers). They are in a diagonal(ish) line, about an inch below my collar bone on the right hand side of my chest; they are roughly about an inch apart. These don't represent anything at the moment, and it's only half completed. The second half is the other side of my chest, in the same location and style. I hope to get these done shortly.
I will write a blog about the process, but essentially its not that painful, its like being pinched; Really hard.
That awkward pattern is from the bandages. I think its pretty cool.
These are a few of what I would like to have done. As I said before, The other side of my chest will be done. Then I'll look into tattoo's, designs and things like that. I'm also interested in other piercings, and placings of Sub Dermal's.
I really, REALLY enjoy reading the posts on BMEZINE.com's "ModBlog".
Unfortunately I've had to remove the second micro dermal. This was done a few weeks ago. It started to keloid and was looking really angry. GAH IM SO FRUSTRATED WITH THAT. I fucking love them and their not working. Devastated. This picture was taken a few weeks ago, and the middle one remaining (which is the oldest) looks a little bad at me. But it's gonna be ok, it's gonna be ok, it's GOTTA be ok.
I have a
mild interest in body piercing and although I don't actually have all that many piercings and I dont have any tattoo's (yet), this here will basically be record of what i have already and would like to get done.
Here's a link to a post regarding the inspiration and images that helped convince me to get the following done.
Currently, I don't have anything too exciting to share with you. I have two lip piercings (no, they're not snake bites, I think they look awful):
- The first one is a Smooth Segment ring made from surgical steel. I had this one pierced in 2008 (i think). I got this one to remind me as to why I should never involve myself with a particular person. It was supposed to remind me about all the hurt and and pain caused between us, but alas, we actually still talk, and it failed at its job. Nevertheless, I love it. I can remember the day I got it too; A friend of mine wanted to have her Labret re-pierced, but would only do it if I did it too.Also, I went to a guys house the night after, and we made out passionately, it really hurt. Fortunately I've never had any infections with it, but I do tend to play with it when I get bored, and have subsequently broken it three times, and swallowed two pieces of metal.
- The second is a Labret Stud made from surgical steel, It has a ball on one end, and a flat base plate on the other. (Flat bar is to prevent less damage to gums and teeth then a ball on both ends would have done).
I don't have a reason why i got this one, no one hurt me, i had just been wanting to get another one. The day i got this one, another friend of mine was getting a Skin Diver / Sub Dermal on the inside of her wrist, and wanted someone to come with her in case she fainted. But the condition was that I had to get something done. My plan was to go back to the piercer and have them change it to the same smooth segment ring I already have, but A) I was lazy, and B) I actually like the ring and bar together.
So yesterday (well, actually this morning) I created a new page on the blog which i will hopefully populate over time with the various and different peircings and hopefully the tattoo that i eventually get. One Day.
In the meantime I thought i would just show a couple of things from the ModBlog that were probably the (ok the actual) reason for me to get the Micro Dermals on my chest. The first one is from this link: About A Boy
We’ve got some large stretched lobes, some nipple piercings, music tattoos, microdermals and implants, oh my! Most importantly, we’ve got a beautiful boy sporting all of these things!
The above image, Loki has his Micro Dermals down his arm, as you can see on the lower left hand side above the BME watermark, I would love to get these too, but at the moment I'm just going to concentrate on stuff that's not too obvious for the time being. He's also spectacularly attractive.
This next two images are where I got the idea from for my line of dermal's along my collarbone. I don't know what attracted me to this image (that is a complete lie). Follow this link to the original Posh Skiffle
.......are also load-bearing. What, you think when you build up hipbones like that they just stay in place by themselves? Not a chance. But now, when this gentleman pops his shirt off in public (as he should be wont to do), he can be secure in the knowledge that his many impressive glamor muscles will stay just where they should be.
I love the BME ModBlog, and I'm pretty sure yaniism will enjoy both of those pics too.
I had my lip piercings done at a couple of quite mediocre establishments, the Micro Dermals were done by the incredible Sharleen & Tim at Out Of Step.
I'd also like to thank Ryan M at WordPress support. He saved this blog from, well, me. I was creating two posts at the same time, in rapid succession and accidentally overwrote this one with something. A classic PICNIC if there was.
