My belly button piercing saved my life.

I've had my belly pierced for about 6 years now. When I originally decided to get it done, I didn't really think of any use it may have or even a real reason for getting it other than it was a piercing and I wanted it. I've always taken great care of my piercings because I was afraid of bad scarring or any sort of rejection. This can only mean that I'm one of those people that freaks out at the first sign of redness. Fast-forward to Thanksgiving morning 2006. As I'm showering I realize a rather large, almost blister ... read more

My Awesome Inverse Navel

Honestly, a navel piercing had never been appealing to me. To me they seemed way to mainstream and girly [I guess I could be considered a slight tom boy]. I really wanted a vertical labret, but my parents are set against me "ruining my beautiful face" and my catholic high school would not allow it anyways. At the time my parents had only let me get three piercings in each ear, and even though they did not like it I had stretched two of them to a 4 ga. I would not consider my parents conservative, because they are each ... read more

Impulse piercings !

Tuesdays are pretty much my worst day of the week cause I have lessons all day and then after school too.. so when I found out two periods were cancelled my friend invited me to go into town with her because her cousin wanted to get her nipple pierced, and she was thinking of getting her belly button re-pierced. Obviously I jumped at the chance so we walked into town and I decided to get money out and get a new piercing on impulse too. I was torn between either a tongue-web or a standard navel because I need my ... read more

I got my navel pierced today! Almost painless!

I've wanted various piercings for a while. I've already got two in each ear, all done while away from home, but I figured a little rebellion might do me some good. I'd been discussing a tongue piercing with my parents, but it wasn't going over very well. What can you expect from overprotective parents? I finally decided on a navel piercing, because they're so pretty and I figured they're easy enough to hide from parentals. I didn't have a guy standing over my shoulder telling me to do it because it would look hot, and the only people I was ... read more

Got My Belly Button Accomplished

Hi. I'm Gen. I'm 14. And my birthday was in early October...so I haven't been 14 for that time. I'm heavily interested and intrigued by body modifications. I already have a tattoo...my three brothers have tattoos, my oldest sister, and soon to be my other older sister. Obviously I am subjected to them daily. My brother got his tongue and his labret, along with his Self-Done nipples. The first piercing I definitely wanted was my tongue...but my mom wouldn't go for that...even though several times before, she agreed to let me get it done. The only one she would allow ... 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

The piercing of the navel!

Well, I am going to start this story by explaining that I got this piercing when I was 14 years old, which was seven years ago. I had been dying to get this piercing done because (of course) everyone else was doing it! When I was 13, everyone in my grade was getting their belly buttons pierced, it was the new bad ass thing and I was so angry that I knew I wouldn't be able to get it done. My parents were always a little on the overprotective side so I didn't even bother to ask them because I ... read more

The ow is definitely worth the wow with nipple piercings!

It was an average Monday; I was browsing BME and as usual I was not really looking for a new piercing. However, after looking at the nipple piercings I was filled with inspiration for a new piercing to look after and take care of. The nipple piercings just caught my eye, and after consulting a couple of my housemates about the idea, I decided to go for it. My friend had agreed to come with me for moral support, but was not free until the Wednesday, and so I would have to wait a day, which gave me some time ... read more

how i almost lost my belly ring

Well, I had recently turned 18, and wanted a piercing, as I am sure most 18 year olds do, but I am a procrastinator, so I sat on the idea for about three months, before settling on getting my navel done. The way I looked at it, it was quick, and from what everyone told me, easy to heal, with a low chance of rejecting. I have always worn low wasted pants, so I figured I should have no problems at all. So I got some friends together, and we all headed down to Tattoo mania after my boyfriend was ... read more
