Excellent belly experience

A little background, this was my third non-ear piercing (tongue, nipple) but only my second professional piercing. I've wanted my belly button pierced for awhile but not with that nagging, piney feeling that I had with my tongue, and it's been put off because I had a baby a year and a half ago, and then the matter of no one who could/would take me. I'm married now so I'm a big girl. I had been toying with the idea of getting a tat a few weeks back, went to a couple of places, but ended up chickening out. It ... read more

Piercings Should Never Involve Pliers

My navel was probably my biggest body mod mistake. For the longest time, I swore black and blue I would never pierce my belly button. I just thought it looked slutty. But then I became interested in body mod, and with a job that prohibited facial piercings, my options were narrowed slightly, so I decided to go for it. However, having just spent all my money on a new tattoo and having had ok experiences piercing my ear lobes myself, decided to go for DIY. I went to the local store and bought a navel barbell, very simple, surgical steel ... read more

A Merry Little Belly Button

I am no stranger to piercing, but I am no expert either. Currently, I have standard lobes (two in left ear, one in right), two upper cartilage piercing in my left ear and one in my right. I am also the proud owner of a scar on my right eyebrow, where last year, alas, I had to retire my lovely piercing. This is the story of my belly button (or navel, if you will). I am currently in my second year at uni. Towards the end of my first year (mainly when I had finished exams and had nothing to ... read more

Not Daddy's Little Girl Anymore Is She?

I do have to say getting my belly button pierced is something I always wanted to do. But, when it came time to getting it done, it was very unplanned and spontaneous. Of course I had to come from a strict household where piercings were not allowed. All my friends were getting multiple holes in their ears as we were in middle school, and I was still waiting to just get ONE haha. My parents promised me at age ten I could get my first holes in ears done. But this was at around age eight so I still had ... read more

1st Real Piercing - Standard Navel

Well I've been thinking about having a body piercing for a long time as I had grown bored of having my ears pierced over and over again and I always liked the look of navel piercings on guys. I researched it all on BME by looking at articles and LOT of pictures and I had decided I wanted a navel piercing. Knowing my parents would not allow me to get it pierced as they are very anti-piercing people I knew it would have to be something I got done on my own accord. Being older looking finally has it's perks ... read more

The story of my self-done belly button piercing.

I come from a one hundred percent Vietnamese family, and they disapprove of almost all piercings (minus ears, but even then they can only be pierced once) and all tattoos, so I have no idea where my fascination with body modifications came from. I've wanted to get my belly button pierced ever since I was about eleven or twelve years old. The idea just always appealed to me. So I asked my mother if she could take me to get it done, but she refused. I then went to my aunt, but she also declined. I then decided to take ... read more

My second navel - it took a while!

For ages now I've wanted more than one navel piercing. When I was 12 I saw a picture o a girl modelling for Sugar magazine, and she had four navel piercing (in a cross shape) I fell in love with it, and decided then that I really wanted it done. For years people were telling me that it would look gross, and it wasn't possible, but I was determined. I asked my mum at 14 whether I could get the first one pierced (she doesn't know that I want 4) and she told me that I could get it done ... read more

My Navel Piercing

My girlfriend has been nagging me for ages about getting a navel piercing, because she said that with my flat belly (not trying to be vain) that'd it really suit me. Plus, according to every girl I spoke to today, it's apparently really sexy to see a guy with a navel piercing. So today we took our weekly trip into Kettering, the town closest to us with shops and a tattoo parlour, and went to our first trip to Tattoo Inc. We usually make several trips per day, and go every single week, so we are fairly known by the ... read more

My Navel, In Retrospect

Let me begin by starting about 2 years ago, when I was 15 and coming very close to my 16th birthday. And all I could think about was how when I turned 16 it would be legal(with parental consent of course) for me to get a body piercing. At that time, all I had was 3 sets of gunned ear lobes, one set which was stretched to 8g. So, I started on convincing my parents to let me get one. What I initially wanted was an eyebrow barbell. I spent a lot of time on BME looking through experiences and ... read more

My First Non-Ear Piercing

Even though I too got my navel pierced about a month ago, this is really my friend's story, because without her I never would have gotten this piercing. She's one of my best friends in the world, but her parents have always been very strict and conservative with her, and once she turned 18, she was sick of it. Thus how I found myself driving in the opposite direction of the Dallas Galleria, where, as far as our parents knew, we were heading, and she persuaded me to take us to a tattoo parlor another of our friends had mentioned. ... read more
