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

Navel Piercing Gone Bad

Ok I'm writing my experience on this site in hopes that impatient people like myself who are under the legal piercing age in their area don't get caught in the same trap I did. I've been in love with body mods ever since I can remember. When I was younger and I'd go shopping with my mom and I'd see someone with a tattoo I'd always mentally snap a picture of it and look back on its beauty to pass the time. My piercing itch started when I was about 10 years old. At that time everyone had a second ... read more

Navel experience

On my 18th birthday, I knew exactly what I wanted as a gift for myself, a navel piercing. After sitting in Dunkin Donuts for two hours contemplating if I should go do or not, I finally decided, this is it, you only live once and I'm going to get it eventually so I may as well just do it now. Completely amped up, my two best friends and I drove to Thayer Street in Providence and walked into the Rockstar piercing shop. I had never been in there before but a few of my friends got pierced there and ended ... read more

Naval piercings...no problem.

Since the time I was twelve I had wanted my belly button pierced. A girl in my seventh grade class had hers done and I admired that her mom took her at such a young age. I also had seen other girls with theirs done. The more I saw them the more attractive I thought they were, and the more I wanted one. I liked how they looked, and figured the piercing was relatively easy. I found myself constantly pinching my belly button area, to test the level of pain I would be feeling. I couldn't get it off my ... read more

My Navel Piercing.

I made the decision to get my navel pierced a fair while before it actually happened. I had always thought of it as an appealing and attractive piercing. When I went on holiday to wales, and I had parental approval, I decided to take the plunge and get it done. I was somewhat nervous. The total cost came to around £35. This was for the piercing itself, and the jewelery, which was a blue titanium banana bar, with a pink gem. I went in and stated my business, and the lady asked me and my mother to fill in a ... read more

My Navel Piercing

May 5th 2007, I was in Peterborough with my sister, Aymee (who at this time had over 10 piercings!) and her friends. I didn't often go to Peterborough, because it was over an hour away from were I lived but however Aymee did and she had told me countless tales of where she'd got piercings from [without my parents knowing!] and basically how good the place was were she got them pierced at. So that day, I had £60 with me at the time and decided that I'd go along with Aymee and co. to get a standard navel piercing. ... read more

Tri-Navel

Okay; so a little introduction first. My names Erin, or more commonly known as Sugar and i'm 13. [: I already have one story on here about how I self-pierced my mid-cartilige and stretched my ear lobe but I have unfortanutely taken both of those loved ones out now. I live in the shithole called Burton and I have completely against piercing parents. Somehow I convinced them to let me get a tri-navel done, so heres what happened...: I had already got a standard navel piercing done about a year ago, which healed up very nicely with no complications. So ... read more
