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

filmstrip #276

When I was about 9 years old, I went to spend Christmas holidays with my relatives in Virginia. My cousin had just gotten her navel pierced, and I was instantly hooked on the idea of getting mine done. I loved how it looked, and at the time piercings (other than your earlobes) weren't a common thing in my small town. Since I was only 9, and my parents are extremely strict, I didn't even bother to ask if I could get it done. Few years pass, I turn 13. Whatever, I'm now a teenager, and I still want my navel ... read more

The pain was worth it

I began, after having my nipple pierced, with the intention of having my navel pierced diagonally. Nothing much really happened for a while, but then my girlfriend got hers pierced on a spur of the moment. Two weeks later, I wanted mine done. I worried about whether it looks feminine, or 'poofy', and my Dad still can't believe I've got 'a bird's piercing'. Despite this I love my navel and its a big part of me. The empty feeling of my torso is gone- I love how it looks. Friends I showed said they thought it would look feminine, but ... read more

First piercing other than ears.

I have 7 piercings on my ears. For a long time I wanted to get a navel piercing. My set back was is I am not skinny, nor I am fat. I'm 5'3 and in the weight area of 140-160. No need to know the exact weight. Ever since I was 16, I've always wanted one. I am now 21 years old, soon to be 22. I decided now it's time that I can finally start piercing myself somewhere. So, I thought about something I had thought about for a long time. My Navel. So, that one Friday night, I ... read more

crooked navel.

The story of my beautiful end product: A beautifully straight, healed navel bar: I decided I really wanted my navel pierced, being a 15 year old girly girl who really wanted a dangly belly bar. I'm a bit past that now! Anyway, I'd already had my ear lobes pierced three times and my nose was pierced. These piercings had all been done at Cosmetics Plus and I hadn't really had any bad experiences, and just assumed they'd be fine. I hadn't really heard any bad things at Cosmetics Plus - however, I knew absolutely nothing about piercings at this time, ... read more
