My Navel Experience

For several years now, I have wanted to get my navel pierced. I've always thought they looked very cute and even dainty. My friends had theirs done, and I thought they looked great. I would constantly see pictures of navel piercings plastered across the internet, as if they were taunting my bare unpierced navel. A pretty gem attached to a silver bar in someone’s midriff easily sent me into a pit of envy. I wanted my navel pierced as soon as possible. The only issue was a lack of time and a ride to the studio.  However, my friend soon ... read more

My Navel, Finally

I had wanted my navel pierced for long time. I am turning 26, and if memory serves I was 12 when I first really felt like that was something I wanted. This was something I've wanted for a long time, and haven't done for myself until now. As an adult, I kept telling myself that I had to lose 10 pounds, 20 pounds, 30 pounds, etc. until I would do it. This had gone on for years and years! It seemed like a good incentive, but I came to realize that I would never be happy enough with my body ... read more

An Inverse Navel Story

Little History:: My mother hates mods, as I'm sure I have said before. When I was 15, I wanted to get a navel piercing.. I told my bestie and she went to get it done so then she had one and there was me, obviously still wanting it. I went to a bootleg hair salon and gave them my student ID and got it done with some birthday money and five minutes later I came out with a slightly crooked diamond-balled barbell in my belly. Mom found out and ripped it out merely three days later and that was the ... read more

My navel scalpelling experience.

Two days ago, I bit the bullet and went under the knife. I originally had my navel pierced at 14g and had stretched to 8g before realizing that I hated the placement. After retiring it, I sought out someone to re-do the piercing in a better spot and at my goal size. I kept all options available, from piercing with a needle, to punching, to scalpelling - which was ultimately the choice I went with. To keep things relatively anonymous, I'll stick to using first initials of names only. I arrived at the studio just as it opened at noon, ... read more

Birthday Button

I remember back in seventh grade, a girl in my art class named Savannah got her bellybutton pierced. I remember being a bit shocked, somewhat disgusted, at the little girl with the red gem glistening from her midriff. I remember being intrigued. I wanted one. I pictured myself with a little silver and purple bar, showing it off like Savannah, gleefully posing in swimsuits with my bling, since I was into that back then. However, the thoughts quickly faded into the background as school became more intense, and friends more reluctant to encourage my shenanigans. A few years later, I ... read more

Waiting a lifetime.

My whole life I've been on the 'hefty' side always admiring those skinny girls that could wear belly button rings and look good. When I reached my heaviest I was 200lbs. A number I never wanted to see on the scale ever again. From that day on the scale forward...I was determined to lose the weight one way or another. I worked so hard for so long and after about two years I had dropped 70 lbs. Bringing my weigh-in to 130. FINALLY 130 lbs, I felt normal. One day out of the blue my mom pointed out that id ... read more

My wonderful Belly

I gave birth for the first and only time 6 years ago, on the 18th of March 2005. I have a wonderful little boy named Tobias (his portrait is on my middle back (done by an artist who had 8 years tattooing experience, but had despite drawing many portraits never tattood a portrait but wanted to, but without portraits in his portfolio couldn't 'sell' the idea of a portrait tattoo to any-one, so I donated my back for him to do his first portrait tattoo, the result is better than a lot of portraits I've seen & not as good ... read more

Inverse Navel Piercing

The Decision I had a standard navel piercing for nine years before it migrated due to wearing a back brace. I was pretty bummed to see my piercing go as it had been one of the only successful piercings I had had. So even though I knew it was migrating, I thought I would be able to take it out, let it close, and I could get it redone. Well, six months went by and I realized the holes were not going to close. Therefore, I was stuck with two ugly holes that were too shallow to pierce or put ... read more

Belly button piercing

Okay, so I admit it! I am what you call a "goody two shoes." I get good grades, I study a lot, I'm respectful to my parents and peers -- and I even clean my room everyday. But more than anything, I wanted a bellybutton ring. "Cute," my mother called it. "Not for you!" is what my father called it, and "cool!" is what my friends call it. Getting your navel pierced isn't the same as getting your ears pierced, where you walk into an accessories shop at the mall and have a teen-ager pierce a hole through your body. ... read more

My Most Missed Piercing

Sadly this story doesn't have an ideal ending. My navel piercing rejected not only once, but twice. I literally cried the first time I had to take it out permanently. I didn't think I would try to pierce it again but I couldn't live without it. Once again, it refused to heal properly and I had to remove it forever... well, until I try a third time in a few months. Anyway, this is my story. So I wake up one morning, check out the photo gallery on BMEzine and think to myself, "Oh man, I NEED another piercing". Yeah, ... read more
