have you done it???

I had wanted a new piercing for a long time, but I didn't want another ear piercing. I got my 1st holes done when I was Around 6 years old and my seconds done when I was 11 years old. I'd toyed with the idea of having my belly button pierced when I was around 12 or 13, but only seriously started considering the idea in the summer of my 14th year. My mum was seriously considering letting me have a piercing, maybe another ear piercing, was what she was thinking. It was my job to decide which one I ... read more

follow aftercare rules

I'm not really completely sure why I wanted to pierce my belly button... I think it was because I was 16 and I was ready to move on from just having my ears pierced like every other girl my age. I realize that a vast majority of girls my age also have their belly buttons pierced, but at least it was something new and more original than just ears. Some of my friends that had already had theirs done for a little while told me not to expect much pain during the actual piercing, but a more painful healing time. ... read more

Massacred belly button

There's a picture floating around here somewhere of a bruised, wonky, and a bit scabby belly button piercing. That piercing was mine. I had removed this only the day after taking the picture, and only after seeing said picture posted on BME did I realise what a bad job Mr piercer had done. At any reputable piercing studio, you should be able to say stop, ask for your money back and walk out, should you feel uncomfortable. For me, this was not the case. As it was around Christmas time, my usual piercer was closed for the holidays. However, I ... read more

Magical, Unexpected Freedom!

This little story is about my navel piercing experience and its totally unanticipated effects on my state of mind. Just to give a little background information for perspective: I am a lady in my late thirties and, like so many people, always walked around with a negative self-image of my supposedly "inadequate" body. I guess we probably all understand how the media and society can perpetuate this. For me it also carried over into a sense of incomplete confidence in my own capabilities, and together the two really helped hold me back from many things in life. I came of ... read more

Horizontal subnavel surface piercing

Okay, here goes. I'm 16 years old. I have my tragus pierced, 2 helix piercings, my nose and my navel done. I used to have a lip piercing but took it out. Unlike a lot of the people probably on bme, I'm not a fan of multiple piercings. I like the occassional unusual one rather than the cliche, and that's why I decided to get a surface piercing under my bellybutton. I'd always wanted one there, but never actually knew if it was possible to get one. So I did a bit of googling around and finally found this site ... read more

first piercing, other than ears..

As a christmas present, i managed to persuade my Mum to pay for a navel piercing. I'd read a lot about them on websites, particularly this one, looked up about cleaning the piercing, the big question of "will it hurt?" (which I can now safely inform you, it doesnt, well a slight pinch), and I also searched through websites looking at the jewllery. My sister had already had it done, which helped, though she told me it would hurt (I think to put me off the idea) but I had wanted it for a while, though at only 13, I ... read more

Finally a navel piercing!

This was my first piercing with a needle...the only appropriate way to be pierced, as I have learned. However, I am no stranger to gun piercing, that's for sure. I had my lobes pierced when I was 7 at Claire's and then when they got infected and closed up, I had them re-pierced again (at Claire's) when I was 10. The same situation occured AGAIN, and I had them re-pierced once again at 14. They have been fine every since, thank god. I also got second holes at Claire's, at age 15. A few months ago, I had a cartilage ... read more

Triple Navel Project

My story starts off about 6 months ago when I was forced to take out my horizontal surface piercing under my navel. I loved the piercing so much, and after having it for a year, it started to reject for no apparent reason. The piercing was done at Universal in Ottawa, Ontario, and it really was a great experience. I was told that eventually all surface piercings reject, therefore I was expecting to take it out at some point in my life. After it was gone it was hard to get used to, and I missed having something there. I ... read more

FINALLY my stomach is S E X Y !!!

Okay so since I was in about seventh grade I wanted my belly button done. I attempted to ask my parents but they said it would "kill me" and I was too much of a "crybaby" to get any piercing done. So I just let go of the whole idea. By the time of eight grade, everyone wanted a piercing to be "cool" and the idea of a belly sprung back up in my head. So I decided to share my idea with my best friends, we obviously couldn't get our parents to take us so we decided it would ... read more

The Piercing, The Infection - The Result (happy ending)

I was 16 at the time of my first (well, only) belly-button piercing. Aside from my ears (once on each and one old closed up upper cartilage piercing), I'd never had anything else done. My mom, 38 at the time, had her belly button pierced when I was a little kid – about 12 – so when I asked her about it, I knew it wouldn't be a problem for me to get mine done. I got my piercing in Muncie Indiana; I can't remember the name of the place, but the shop seemed clean enough and the people there ... read more
