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

Doing up the Button

Doing UP The Button ~ By February 2009 I had discovered that I had a small addiction to piercing, or was it just to the sparklies that filled the resultant holes. By this time I had three holes in each ear (two cartilage), one in my nose and one in my most special of girly places, all of which I had grown to love and couldn’t imagine being without. But as with any family, a new member is always greeted with joy and love and it was time for the birth of my belly button piercing. I was always a ... read more

Bauchnabelpiercing in Barcelona

Im Sommer 2007 waren meine beste Freundin und ich gemeinsam im Urlaub. Eigentlich hatte sie diese Reise gemeinsam mit ihrem Freund antreten wollen, doch war dieser zu diesem Zeitpunkt bereits ihr Ex und um den schönen Platz nicht verfallen zu lassen, trat ich an seiner Stelle die Reise an. Barcelona ist nun nicht unbedingt der Ort, den man zu zweit als Single bereisen sollte. Die Stadt ist schön, sie bietet Kultur, doch eigentlich war uns mehr nach Strand und Palmen, so dass uns irgendwann tagsüber langweilig wurde und wir im Cafe sitzend vom 100sten ins 1000ste kamen und irgendwann mal ... read more

Second Time Is An Opal Charm

As a fifteen year old way back in the mid-1990s, I once spent a late night lying on the floor of my bedroom, shoving a sewing needle through the flap of skin above my navel. An hour of muttered curses and profuse sweating later, the needle ("sterilized, " naturally, with rubbing alcohol--oh the follies of pre-Internet youth) was finally through and a sterling silver flea market hoop earring was jammed through the hole. Extraordinary amounts of parental screaming, which admittedly I deserved--nobody try this at home--followed. It should surprise precisely nobody that this ill-educated DIY piercing rejected post-haste leaving me ... read more

navel ring infection

I had been interested in getting a tattoo but after reading and researching about it a lot, I decided I wanted to have an experience getting pierced first. I had just lost 30 pounds so I decided to reward myself with a navel piercing. My parents are also Mormon and would be very upset if I had a piercing even though I was 18. I planned it for a long time but actually going to get it done was slightly impulsive. My friends wanted to ditch the last day of high school and I suggested we just go to a ... read more

My Navel

I have always wanted a navel ring, for one reason: navel jewelry is so just so darn pretty! For years in high school I eyed racks of dangling rhinestones and thought "one day, when my belly is flat enough, I will wear one of those!" Yes, I am a self conscious girl. But a few months ago, after months of hitting the gym (not to mention getting over my teenage awkwardness) I finally felt ready. Having only had a couple of basic piercings done before (ears, nose, eyebrow), and I had trusted a friend of mine to refer me to ... read more

After years of wanting of. She finally agreed!

So when I was 10 years old I saw my first belly button ring. I immediately told my mom I wanted one, and she immediately turned it down. My mother is more of a conservative person, she thinks that a second hole ear piercing it rebellious, but I was 10 what did I know. The thought always stayed with me however, and when I would bring it up every once in a while, but never really bugged my mom about it. Her word was like law to me when I was younger. Not so much these days, however. At 13, ... read more

I fainted, and it was entirely my fault.

I arrived at blue banana half an hour before I was going to get pierced, because they needed to sterilize the jewellery they were using for my navel piercing. I was asked to fill out a form and show a form of identification. After this the deputy manager of the store asked if I had eaten lunch that day, I lied and told him I had, which was my major mistake regarding this piercing. He advised me to have a sugary drink and return to the store in 30 minutes. I paid for the piercing, and headed to a newsagents ... read more

boyfriend saliva, just what a new piercing needs.

Now, I'm not one of those people that has always wanted a belly button ring. I used to think they were trashy, the equivalent of a tramp stamp, until me and my boyfriend were talking about piercings. He really wanted his lip done (one year later, and he still wants it), and I realized that I'm blessed with a flat tummy, why not accentuate it? At this time I had a bunch of self done ear piercings (4 lobes in each ear, and two cartilage-OW!) and my nose stud, so I didn't have anything to compare the pain of a ... read more
