I got my tongue pierced when I was 18, my belly button when I was 16. Both my nipples when I was 26, you can't imagine how painful this was, I said m-f$cker as he pierced each nipple. But I had to take them out when I got married, my husband didn't like a mouth full of metal, I guess. So I went through all that pain for nothing. I wish I still had them, I liked them. But, I love my husband more, didn't want to but a damper on my sex life of course,lol.
I used to be pretty obsessed with piercings. Had 13 alltogether. These days I've just got my septum and my ears (00g) left going. Can still put a ring in my lip though if I wanted because it never fully closed.
My retired ones are:
Wrist (yay saw another person who had that done *high five*)
2 x below my collarbones
3 x navel (at once!)
left side of my lip
cheek (surface bar under left eye)
smiley (that piece of skin between your lip and gums (top))
would love to get the collarbone surface ones redone sometime again!
I have 2 gauge piercings in each ear and a conch piercing in both ears as well as an anti-eyebrow piercing and snake bites. I love them all! Though it's a pain finding plastic bits for everything when it drops below freezing.
5 tattoos including a very large dragon that goes down my back, ears gauged to 3/4, labret, tongue, right nipple, and bridge. I am also the only one in my entire area with my bridge done. Havent gotten any tattoos since I became a type 1 but all my piercings seemed to heal fine so I think that i will get more.
