My regular navel piercing

So me and my friends had been contemplating getting our navels pierced together (well, not literally pierced together, but going together to get our navels pierced -separately-) for a while... It had been my job to research for a piercing place and find out the age regulations, since we'd all just turned 16 and sort of wanted this piercing as an independence sort of thing. I had a bit of an issue with parental consent. My mother knew I was getting the piercing but she refused to come anywhere with me to get it done so I needed to find ... read more

My Navel...My Secret

I have wanted my navel pierced for a very long time but I knew there was no use in asking my mom to take me or support me along the way so I just kind of let it go for awhile. When I was about 13 my best friend got her's done and I now believe that that experience made me wait until now... I was driving around with my boyfriend and I decided that maybe it is time to get another piercing done...this isn't my first piercing I hid from my mom.. We both decided that I would get ... read more

My first piercing

Prior to this, I hadn't had any piercings besides my ears when I was 7, which don't really count, and I hadn't been allowed to pierce them anymore beyond that when I got older (cartilage, etc.) I've always kind of liked the navel piercing, but was worried my belly button wasn't the right size for it. And finally today, on a whim and with forty extra bucks burning a hole in my pocket, I decided to just go for it. I went to Quad City West Tattoo, which is actually farther away into Elgin than I expected. and was greeted ... read more

my first non-ear piercing...bellybutton!

Although it happened a few years ago, I still clearly remember the day I FINALLY convinced my dad to let me get it pierced. I had been begging him for years and he would always say "maybe next year" or, "I'll think about it." My dad is pretty laid back, and pretty much lets me do whatever I want, so in the rare case he says "no" to me, I respect that. But... I still brought it up. I was about sixteen at the time, and it was Memorial Weekend. My boyfriend at the time loved belly rings and was ... read more

Piercing A Navel When You're Plus Sized

I'm ashamed to say now that it took forever for me to get my navel pierced. I would spend hours surfing the internet for photos like most girls and eventually got to the embarrassing point where I would look in a mirror and try to imagine a piece of jewelry decorating a spot that I never really thought of as being all that attractive. I was disheartened a bit by the fact that I have never had a small stomach nor will I ever. When I was looking for information specifically related to getting a navel piercing when having a ... read more

My 4th time repiercing

I've always loved navel piercing and the thought of having a metal jewelry in your belly sounds simply cute. The first time I've even gotten my belly pierced was at the age of 12. I remember talking about it for a week with my friend. She told me she knew a place called the METRO MALL (which i do not recommend btw) where they don't check for your I.D. I was excited and wanted to get it done so after a week, I went there and came out with a playboy bunny jewelry in my body. My aftercare was to ... read more

OMG THERES A HOLE IN MY STOMACH

Ever since 7th grade, I wanted to get my belly button pierced. I've always had my ears done, since I was 9 months old. I eventually built up to 4 on each ear, and 3 of them were cartilage. I'd heard that cartilage piercings hurt WAY more than belly buttons, so I didn't worry too much. Since I was on a crew team (rowing) I didn't think that it would be a good idea to have it done until the season was over. Since it's a sport, and I'd be doing crunches and moving a lot, I couldn't see it ... read more

I Lost My Virginity To A Needle!! YAY!!

I have always been curious about piercings and tattoos but I come from a very conservative and religious home. I am 18 and I still live with my parents so I decided it would be the best idea to play by their rules. I live in Trinidad and Tobago in the West Indies and I spend ALOT of time on the beach. I kept seeing girls with navel piercings and I loved how it looked. I tried to scare myself out of the idea by reading horror stories that I found. Soon I realised that the horror stories were either ... read more

No spiritual connection, but happy with myself.

The height of summer, 2007. Or, at least, as high as summer ever got this year in our part of rural Gloucestershire – and no, I'm not talking about the floodwaters! The day was a beautiful, sunny Monday. The sky was clear, and bluer than Frank Sinatra's eyes. The fields and hedgerows sang with green, the woods looming all dark and verdant over our little town. The situation? My boyfriend/best friend Pie and I, seventeen and eighteen respectively, were making the most of the longest summer holiday we have ever had or will ever have. This was the summer after ... read more

First non-ear piercing - my navel.

For the last few weeks, possibly months, I'd been considering getting a navel piercing, mainly because I didn't have any non-ear piercings and I was itching for something new, preferably something that wouldn't be seen. I still have a few months of school to go and I'm sick of compromising healing time on my ear piercings because I'm trying to hide them. The general stereotypical navel piercing these days seems to belong to midriff-baring, promiscuous teenage girls, which is partly why I chose this particular piercing. I seem to have difficulty with dealing with others' perception of me a lot ... read more
