Body piercing in the media

Body piercing is very fashionable today. Once, not long ago, piercings and tattoos would be something you’d expect to see on the villain in a movie. Today however, internet bloggers and news sources feature piercing related stories regularly. Often though, they’re written with very little research and experience with piercing. Piercers, like us, see websites and Youtube videos all the time with some suggestion or idea that we can only laugh at or be frustrated by. The best example is the unfortunate internet phenomenon of the Daith piercing. We hope that you find our piercing information to be both interesting and useful.

Piercing information in the past

In the early days of the internet, BME was the only real outlet for piercers to communicate with each other (and enthusiasts). In the early and mid 1990’s piercing wasn’t disconnected from the body modification scene like it is today. Like tattooing, piercing now is considered a discipline of it’s own. This means that the majority of legitimate piercing information comes from respected and experienced piercers. So use caution when choosing your source(s) of body piercing information. Today there’s a lot of people writing about piercing, but many authors are writing about a topic they don’t fully understand.
