looking for BM artist who can do Ear Pointing In Southern Cali

Tuesday May 1st, 2012 @ 12:32 AM

Filed under: Uncategorized

I have searched the web, asked local and far away artists, I can’t find an artist who can do ear pointing In southern California,? Need help finding one. I found one in Nor Cal, this may have to be an adventure…

It is difficult to find a body modificaiton artist wherever you live, as most of them travel. I personally have had nearly all of my heavy mods by Lunacobra.net as he travels the world frequently and if I recall, is in America right now. He has been featured for his points on bme a number of times, I would suggest to message him from his site to schedule something up.

Make sure, no matter who you decide to get it done by, that you are happy and confident with your artist and ask to see a variety of HEALED work in their portfolio before you decide to get it done.

im interested in gettin this done, however not sure of where to go or who to trust to do this procedure. i live near raleigh, nc. i have been to 1 plave to get other genital piercings done and the guy has a lot of certificates on the wall for suspensions, brandings and others. i have not talked to him about it tho. i have said something to a guy who use to work for him when i got my dydoes and frenum done he said he has not but the owner will know more. the owner has done my RPA and is the only 1 i havnt talked to about it yet was gettin more info about the procedure, since when i asked the 1st time i was unclear about it. do u know of some1 in my arera who has expirence in this

Transcrotals are a very difficult procedure to do and need to be done just right, or you can have serious complications.

I had mine done by lunacobra.net (Howie), he has a lot of his work featured in the BME hard galleries and travels around the world doing body modification.

I would personally suggest to message him personally on his site and see when he will be near your area.

Dahlias

Why do you not have a category for Dahlia piercings ?

i know they’re not all that common, but they should at least be able to be searched for. I adore this site, i come to it for everything. And it’s slightly disappointing that i can’t find pictures, and especially experiences of others for this piercing, seeing as i just recently got it done.

also, i have no idea where to submit my entry for the Dahlia piercings.

They’re a lip piercing, and get filed as such, I believe. You can submit your pictures and experience under that category. :)

Silicone beads

Sunday January 24th, 2010 @ 1:32 PM

Filed under: Uncategorized

Hi there, I am wanting to get some small silicone beads implanted into my chest, and cant find anywhere that sells them in the uk. Does anyone know where I could find these? Thanks

The practitioner who’s putting them in you should have an idea where to get them…. I know of a few people in the UK who do silicone implants, so going to a professional will get you what you’re looking for.

Question about ear pointing mod

Friday January 8th, 2010 @ 5:51 PM

Filed under: Uncategorized

I have always wanted to modify my ears so that they are somewhat more pointed - like the elves have in the LOTR movies.

Arwen is the top picture, my ear is below that. I’ve tried to show what I’d want in there: when I press *very* slightly with my fingers (like when holding a ping pong ball) it’s enough to shape them like that.

But I don’t know how to make this permanent. Looking for information I found many pictures of ear modifications - pointings - that look like the bottom picture. They all have this cropped look and a “thick” triangular point. I definitely don’t want them to look like that; and besides, I’m not sure if cutting is necessary to obtain that subtle effect that I want.

So I emailed body mod studios and some artists, but to no avail.

I’ve mailed with Lukas Zpira today because a studio in Amsterdam (where I live) referred me to him asking him all these things: how the procedure worked, what I could expect; If there were any other ways of altering the shape of the ears apart from cutting .. like stretching or using little implants or what have you.

His response was that he could do what I asked but didn’t give details or any pictures of the result of his proposed procedure.

It really puzzles me that it is so hard to find answers. It even makes me feel that my asking all these things is somehow “not done”: no-one seems to do it. Maybe it’s because I don’t have any body mods at all - not even a tattoo? That people who are used to these things are a lot easier?

I would really appreciate any help. I have read from others that Lukas Zpira is considered a good artist - but I feel that I need to know a bit more before letting anyone do something so definitive to the only pair of ears I’ve got.

It’d be great if anyone could answer these questions -

- is it possible at all to create the sort of shape that I have in mind - permanently?

- since I need so little pressure to shape my ears into that shape: can’t it be done much easier than with cutting and stitching?

-

With the folding method in which ear pointing is most commonly done by most artists, it can be difficult to achieve a more subtle point. The more drastically pointed ears tend to be more commonly seen in this case. There are other ear pointing methods which can achieve a more subtle point, but are not commonly seen. I think that this will change in the future.

Here is some preliminary info on caring for newly pointed ears. This will help them to hold their new shape:

Ear pointing requires much care and caution through healing, as neglect can invite the ear to not hold it’s new shape. If you are very careful and follow aftercare instructions thoroughly, it will be much easier for your ear to hold it’s new shape and heal into place permanently. Aftercare includes keeping your sutures in for 10 days, not putting pressure on your ears for a minimum of 3-6 weeks, as well as re-enforcing the points with closure tape for extra support during that time. Secondary to this, the next biggest risk (as with any body art) is infection. You must keep the freshly sutured wounds very clean and dry throughout your initial healing period. Antibiotics can also be a proactive measure that can be taken to avoid the chance of infection. You would need to see your doctor for a prescription in this case.

Dried Blood Removal

Monday November 16th, 2009 @ 2:22 PM

Filed under: Uncategorized

This may come across as a bit of a strange question, but I got my ears scalpalled yesterday. The procedure itself went well and the healing has gone well so far (as well as a day’s worth of healing can go anyway), but I do have one minor problem. During the procedure there was, as expected, some bleeding. Unfortunately some of the blood ended up inside my left ear canal making it difficult to hear out of that ear. Its comparable to when you get water stuck in your ear. I have been trying to remove it, mainly through use of water and a cutip but I can’t seem to get the dried blood out of there and its starting to become REALLY annoying. Any advice on how to remove the dried blood from the inside of my ear would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

You’ve got to be very careful about allowing blood to stay in your ear canal as it can cause a pretty nasty inner-ear infection. Which is incredibly painful.

If you cannot pull it out with a Q-tip, I would try standing in the shower and focussing the shower-head spray to the ear and see if the blood could be irrigated out that way.

Is it a good idea to take business management before opening up my own shop??

I’d say it’s good idea to educate yourself in any way possible before opening your own business.

How to Delete A Story

Wednesday November 4th, 2009 @ 6:13 PM

Filed under: Uncategorized

Hi there,

My name is Bianca and I was wondering how I could go about deleting a story I submitted several years ago.

When you submit a picture, video or text to BME, these submissions become property of BME. You acknowledge this when you make the submission, plus you are “paid” for your submission with BME or IAM membership.

A lot of thought should go into what you post on the internet, especially instances where you sign over the rights to your picture (or story or whatever), because one day they may come back to haunt you.

To answer your question, you can not delete any content from BME because it is no longer yours to delete. If you have a very good reason for wanting the story removed email [email protected] and plea your case, however they have every right to deny the deletion.

ink allergy or infection

Monday October 19th, 2009 @ 3:35 PM

Filed under: Uncategorized

This is a photo taken of a small addition to my half sleeve, done 2 weeks ago during touchup. The rest is healing normally. Does it look like infection or ink allergy? There was one color used here not used anywhere else, but I’ve had quite a range of colors in pretty extensive work and never seen anything lik ethis… What do you think?

Your doctor will be able to test a swab and tell you for sure, but I’d definitely say that looks like an infected tattoo.

Can you pierce over a closed piercing?

Sunday October 18th, 2009 @ 3:24 PM

Filed under: Uncategorized

Hey guys,

I had my eyebrow pierced a few months ago, took it out just recently, and it closed up. I would like it re-pierced on the same eyebrow, but there is still a little bump under the skin like you would have from an earlobe piercing. It doesn’t hurt and it was not infected…just wondering if there’s any harm in getting it redone in the next couple months or so. A friend of mine is a piercer and says that is okay, but some other people are advising against it..

If you’re leaving a good two or three months before repiercing, you shouldn’t have a problem having it repierced in the same area.
