Reader's Digest Version

I got my navel pierced in February of 2005. I had turned 18 a month before, and the boyfriend at the time decided he wanted his ear pierced. He chose a shop that I've never really been comfortable in; my mother married into the family who owns the shop, and when you're related to them and they can't remember your name, that doesn't exactly put me at ease. I did everything wrong. I was easily 50 lbs overweight when I walked into the shop that afternoon, and to disguise it as best I could, when I held my shirt up ... read more

are you serious!? that painless!

Hey. I just got my belly button pierced, and I'm here to share my amazing experience with you. Well to let you in on a little about me, and almost 15 and a huge wimp when it comes to pain and needles. I passed out when I got my ears pierced. I have always been fascinated with body piercing and tattoos since I was 8. That's when my mom get her first tattoo, and let me go with her. Seeing all the unique people really got me interested in it all. So, probably when I was 11 or 12 is ... read more

Navel piercing; then and now.

Background So, a bit of background information first. A few years ago, I got my standard navel piercing. I was thirteen or fourteen, and didn't know anything about it other than it looked 'pretty'. None of my friends had any piercings other than the standard gunned lobes, and they actually threatened to stop being friends with me if I got mine. Well, I had my priorities, and feeling good about myself was right at the top. So, I wrote a note 'from my mom' to the piercer, who was known (and still is) for piercing underage kids, and not piercing ... read more

A mother and daughter navel experience

My most wonderfullest of piercings. Today is the day before Mother's Day. Mother's Day eve, if you will. I happen to have an exceptionally awesome mother. She's completely amazing and loves me for me, all quirks included. She even accepted my randomly shaved mohawk! Before I get too sappy, I'll begin my new piercing tale. About a month ago I stretched my ears to a 00g. Normally, a newer, larger size looks rather small to me after about a week. This time was quite different; I wore my beautiful Gorilla Glass pieces and it just felt... too big. I felt ... read more

Navel piercings and exercise

I was always adamantly against getting my navel pierced, until for some reason, I decided to get it done. The only real concern I had was exercise- I am a bit of a gym junkie and was worried I would have to take time off the gym, and would have trouble exercising with the piercing. I talked to a piercer, and some friends with their bellies pierced who all assured me the exercise would be fine after a few days. So after MONTHS of deliberating, I bit the bullet and got it done. The procedure was simple, choose a jewelled ... read more

my first body piercing, I want more!

I'd wanted my belly button pierced since one of my best friends had it done when I was about 12. I kept asking my parents but it was no all the way. Even the 'but all my friends have got it done and I'm the odd one out' line just didn't seem to work. I met my boyfriend when I was 16 and he thought it looked good too, but I still thought my parents wouldn't agree. My 17th birthday came and went, and I still wanted it done, so I decided to ask once more, this time, they said ... read more

My first body piercing and a new shiny navel!

My only piercing experience until two days ago had been a total botch-job of what should have been a completely simple standard ear piercing session at a well-known posh ladies' boutique when I was 11. On that day, I'd waited for over an hour to be pierced, nervous as hell, before being told that the piercer had gone home early. The manager then came out, on his lunch hour, and said he'd do it for me. He had no piercing experience, didn't clean or mark my ears, and just shot two studs into my lobes as he saw fit. Needless ... read more

my first navel piercing! (more to come)

I've always liked the look of navel piercings, I can't remember seeing one for the first time but I remember always thinking they looked ace whenever I saw them and it was always something I thought I would get in the future, I just never thought about it that much. I'm pretty much a complete wimp with pain, before my navel piercing I'd already chickened out of getting my ears pierced when I was younger and I only got them done last year.(when i was 15) Once my boyfriend and his mum finally persuaded me to get them done and ... read more

Learn from my mistakes!

I had my navel pierced approximately 6 months ago, in December 06, at Primitive by Idil. I shall spare you the usual stuff about parents, but most importantly, I would recommend would-be-piercees to do their homework! Having surfed on the Internet for about 2 months leading to the piercing to check on other's experiences, I thought I knew everything there was to know about piercing, but I was very very wrong. Well, the piercing process went quite alright. Idil had the jewelery sterilized, had a single use needle, had gloves on. Since all the tools were on his tray, he ... read more

Worth the pain.

This experience happened almost three months ago at the end of February. Me and my friend went to west Edmonton mall to go graduation shopping. Before the day we talked about getting a piercing done each but we weren't firm on the decision. Anyways, we went there and she found her grad dress and I didn't. We then went to go and eat(I remember from my tongue piercing that they make sure you eat beforehand). We talked about it with our moms and decided that we were going to get pierced. I was actually surprised because my mom is so ... read more
