Standard top belly piercing

Ever since the belly button piercing craze began, I wanted to get it done. Although like many parents, they would never let their 15 year old daughter get it. So I had to wait until after my 18th birthday. So once I turned 18, I knew I could finally be a parent's worse nightmare and start getting all my piercings and tattoos like I had always wanted. Getting my belly button pierced was at the top of my list so I decided to get it done. I live in Jersey and there's countless tattoo and piercing places everywhere. I knew ... read more

My Experience with Navel Piercing

For my 16th birthday my parents said it was alright if I got my navel pierced. Of course I was excited, but I was also nervous because I thought it would hurt and I was afraid of getting an infection. So I did some research and found bme, and I read some of the stories other people wrote in, and it helped a lot. Thanks bme!! =) I also did some research on how to care for a new piercing, the procedure that was used to do the piercing, and I also researched the studio where I wanted to get ... 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

Navel piercing - unforeseen problems, rejection, and removal (but loved it)

My interest in body modification started when I was fifteen, and by the time I turned seventeen, I knew I wanted some kind of piercing. I especially liked lip piercings, but I'd already had problems with my teeth and gums and opted for a standard navel piercing instead (which was also my ex-boyfriend's preference at the time). I knew it would be a long heal but figured I could keep up with it. I found myself in Rochester, New York when I was seventeen--and conveniently enough, there either was no required age for piercings without parent consent or the shop ... read more

A successful DIY navel piercing

DISCLAIMER: THIS STORY IS NOT IN ANY WAY MEANT TO BE USED AS INSTRUCTIONS FOR PIERCING YOUR NAVEL. IT IS FAR SAFER TO GO TO A PROFESSIONAL AND GET IT DONE SAFELY, THEREFOR REDUCING THE RISKS OR REJECTION, INFECTION OR MIGRATION* It all began a few months ago. My 14 year old sister in law and her friend tried to pierce her belly button with a sewing needle (very stupid). After it got severely infected and her mum finding out, she was forced to take it out. A couple of months later my mother in law asked me to pierce ... read more
