My Navel...My Secret

I have wanted my navel pierced for a very long time but I knew there was no use in asking my mom to take me or support me along the way so I just kind of let it go for awhile. When I was about 13 my best friend got her's done and I now believe that that experience made me wait until now... I was driving around with my boyfriend and I decided that maybe it is time to get another piercing done...this isn't my first piercing I hid from my mom.. We both decided that I would get ... read more

My first piercing

Prior to this, I hadn't had any piercings besides my ears when I was 7, which don't really count, and I hadn't been allowed to pierce them anymore beyond that when I got older (cartilage, etc.) I've always kind of liked the navel piercing, but was worried my belly button wasn't the right size for it. And finally today, on a whim and with forty extra bucks burning a hole in my pocket, I decided to just go for it. I went to Quad City West Tattoo, which is actually farther away into Elgin than I expected. and was greeted ... read more

my first non-ear piercing...bellybutton!

Although it happened a few years ago, I still clearly remember the day I FINALLY convinced my dad to let me get it pierced. I had been begging him for years and he would always say "maybe next year" or, "I'll think about it." My dad is pretty laid back, and pretty much lets me do whatever I want, so in the rare case he says "no" to me, I respect that. But... I still brought it up. I was about sixteen at the time, and it was Memorial Weekend. My boyfriend at the time loved belly rings and was ... read more

Navel Piercing

In August I decided out of nowhere to get my navel pierced. My boyfriend told me that he didn't want me to, because he thought it was just some impulse decision and I would regret it, and admittedly it WAS an impulse decision at the time. I decided that I didn't care if he didn't want me to; I was going to do it anyway. I talked to my cousin, who has done a lot of piercings and is very good at it despite not being a professional piercer, and he said that he would gladly do it; I just ... read more

First non-ear piercing - my navel.

For the last few weeks, possibly months, I'd been considering getting a navel piercing, mainly because I didn't have any non-ear piercings and I was itching for something new, preferably something that wouldn't be seen. I still have a few months of school to go and I'm sick of compromising healing time on my ear piercings because I'm trying to hide them. The general stereotypical navel piercing these days seems to belong to midriff-baring, promiscuous teenage girls, which is partly why I chose this particular piercing. I seem to have difficulty with dealing with others' perception of me a lot ... read more

Navel piercing - unforeseen problems, rejection, and removal (but loved it)

My interest in body modification started when I was fifteen, and by the time I turned seventeen, I knew I wanted some kind of piercing. I especially liked lip piercings, but I'd already had problems with my teeth and gums and opted for a standard navel piercing instead (which was also my ex-boyfriend's preference at the time). I knew it would be a long heal but figured I could keep up with it. I found myself in Rochester, New York when I was seventeen--and conveniently enough, there either was no required age for piercings without parent consent or the shop ... read more

A successful DIY navel piercing

DISCLAIMER: THIS STORY IS NOT IN ANY WAY MEANT TO BE USED AS INSTRUCTIONS FOR PIERCING YOUR NAVEL. IT IS FAR SAFER TO GO TO A PROFESSIONAL AND GET IT DONE SAFELY, THEREFOR REDUCING THE RISKS OR REJECTION, INFECTION OR MIGRATION* It all began a few months ago. My 14 year old sister in law and her friend tried to pierce her belly button with a sewing needle (very stupid). After it got severely infected and her mum finding out, she was forced to take it out. A couple of months later my mother in law asked me to pierce ... read more

Navel Piercing Gone Bad

Ok I'm writing my experience on this site in hopes that impatient people like myself who are under the legal piercing age in their area don't get caught in the same trap I did. I've been in love with body mods ever since I can remember. When I was younger and I'd go shopping with my mom and I'd see someone with a tattoo I'd always mentally snap a picture of it and look back on its beauty to pass the time. My piercing itch started when I was about 10 years old. At that time everyone had a second ... read more

Navel experience

On my 18th birthday, I knew exactly what I wanted as a gift for myself, a navel piercing. After sitting in Dunkin Donuts for two hours contemplating if I should go do or not, I finally decided, this is it, you only live once and I'm going to get it eventually so I may as well just do it now. Completely amped up, my two best friends and I drove to Thayer Street in Providence and walked into the Rockstar piercing shop. I had never been in there before but a few of my friends got pierced there and ended ... read more

Naval piercings...no problem.

Since the time I was twelve I had wanted my belly button pierced. A girl in my seventh grade class had hers done and I admired that her mom took her at such a young age. I also had seen other girls with theirs done. The more I saw them the more attractive I thought they were, and the more I wanted one. I liked how they looked, and figured the piercing was relatively easy. I found myself constantly pinching my belly button area, to test the level of pain I would be feeling. I couldn't get it off my ... read more
