I wish I would've Waited!

Around this time of year about three years ago I was obsessed with belly button peircings. Getting mine done was all I could think about! I begged my mom for weeks to take me. Finally she gave in! It was on a Wednesday that we went. We went to one place and they wouldn't do it because I was so young. I was majorly bummed! Before we gave up, we went to one last place. He agreed to do it as long as my mother signed for me! With all the paper work squared away, it was time to get ... read more

Five Holes for the Posession of One

I've been obsessed with modification since kindergarten but I was never allowed to have any. I was finally able to get my lobes pierced at about thirteen but only because my sister wanted it done, as well. Unfortunately, as with all peoples of the mod-ignorant masses, none of us knew it was unsafe to have it done at Wal-Mart and that is exactly what we did. To this day it still baffles me that my mother, who worked at a hospital for years, didn't think that it might be a bad idea. But that is not what this is about. ... read more

A navel piercing from heaven.

About 4 months ago on November 12th, I made my way on down to a quaint tattoo parlor in downtown Fredericksburg. Every year my parents have allowed me to get one piercing ever since I managed to convince them that piercings were a healthy obsession. Last year it was my snug, which I recently retired because it was thoroughly against the idea of healing. This time my dad accompanied me to get my navel pierced. I see navel piercings as somewhat of a gateway drug, so I thought it would be a good choice as an addition to my collection ... read more

Piercing My Own Navel

When I was younger, in middle school, I really wanted my navel pierced, I already had my lobes pierced twice. I made the mistake of asking my mother first, my mother is very conservative and she obviously said no. I had never really done anything that my parents told me not to do before and I just really wanted to rebel... so I did. One night I just decided to do it. I got some ice from the kitchen and held it on my navel for about five minutes and then I used a safety pin which I had briefly ... read more

A Long Awaited Navel Piercing

I had wanted a navel piercing for quite some time. My mother had hers done when I was 11, and it killed me to think I'd have to wait 7 more years 'till I had the chance to get mine. I was no stranger to piercings; I had 3 each in my ear as well as my cartilage. Pain was not a problem; I just didn't have the patience. Finally my 18th birthday arrived which also happened to be Mardi Gras weekend. My friend Brittany had wanted her navel done as well so she and I decided to make a ... read more

My second piercing in 22 years.

I hadn't really thought about getting my naval pierced until I was 32 years old and I had a whole new look going for me so why not get pierced? I am not much of a jewelry person to start with. I wear my wedding ring and only seldom do I wear earrings. So I never thought too much about it. My husband said he wasn't too thrilled about the idea but after talking about it we realized that if I got a tattoo, it was permanent. I couldn't change it, the color, the style, etc. At least with a ... read more

101 ways not to look after you navel...

My navel has always been done as a pretty, secretive piercing that I liked the look of. I was 14 when I first got it pierced, it was about a year after the craze seemed to have started in my school, and all the time I saw girls pulling up their school shirts and playing with pretty gems and showing their friends their freshly pierced stomachs. But I didn't want mine done at that point. And even if I did, I knew my mother would never let me, it was hard enough getting my ears pierced once. But then after ... read more

My Navel Piercing - A Sign of Independence

After going on vacations to tropical places for so many years and seeing so many navel piercings at the beaches, I always thought about how awesome it would be to have one as my own. Now, my parents aren't very conservative and although my Dad was pretty okay with it, my mom was still not totally comfortable with the whole idea. The only thing she would let me do was get a second hole done in my ears, and even though it's nice to having another one, I wasn't completely satisfied. I researched curiously about the topic constantly and looked ... read more

My first body piercing, and my first convulsion.

It all really started about in April 2006, when I got my ears pierced for the first time. 18 is a little older than average to get that done, I know. But it was so easy and painless, I could now actually see myself getting my navel pierced. Flash forward to August. Some friends and I went to Myrtle beach for three days to celebrate the end of another great summer (we all work at the same Girl Scout camp). I decided it was time to get a daisy tattooed on the second toe of my left foot (a rite ... read more

my bottom bellybutton piercing

After getting my nose pierced and three holes in each ear, i decided to be like everyone else and get my bellybutton pierced. But i didn't want to be like everyone else, I wanted to be unique. At first I thought that there really was not a way to be unique about it, I mean, come on, half the world has their bellybutton's pierced. But then I thought, what if I got the bottom part of it done? How would that look? I tried to think of everyone that I knew that had a bottom bellybutton piercing, and no one ... read more
