Birthday Piercing

I just turned eighteen and not wanting to go support the tobacco industry or partake in pornographic ventures, I thought what better way to celebrate my coming of age than a piercing. I had been wanting to get an industrial for over a year and had been receiving the parental "no" every time the issue arose. When actually presented with the change to get whatever I wanted pierced I found my intense want for an industrial gone - mostly because I am studying vocal arts next year in college to pursue opera (not the most liberal or accepting of art ... read more

Nummy Navel

After mercilessly begging my mom to let my get my navel pierced, I finally gave up (since begging only got her mad) and I decided to go to my dad and his girlfriend, hoping for a more positive response. He said he would think about it, and I knew more than likely it would be a yes. So, when I got to go see him, I asked once more (since my dad was very forgetful). And he said he would talk about it with JoAnne (his girlfriend). Finally after asking my dad if he'd thought about it lots more, I ... read more

A rush

My descision to get my navel pierced started a long time before I got it pierced, but I suppose I didn't realise it. I had always wanted to get something pierced besides my ear lobes and rook but my Mother had never let me, I had spent so long begging her that I'd get better grades. Seeing as I never did she of course said no to any new piercing proposal.At nearly fifteen I guess I want to show that I can be grown up on my own, you know - if I have to have a job and pay ... read more

Navel piercing then Warped Tour? Bad Idea.

This is definitely not some normal story. Asking for a lip ring, getting your belly button pierced, then going to warped tour? Yeah, that's normal. Since I was 11, I've always been into piercings. So, since about last May, I realized I really wanted a lip ring. So I kept asking non-stop for it, but I always got a "no" from my dad, of course. So then we made a deal that in December if I got good grades and was responsible, I could get it done. So then last weekend I missed a whole night of sleep because I ... read more

A pretty normal navel

The Beginning Right so, about four months ago I decided I wanted my navel pierced. I asked my parents and I was shocked with an immediate 'No'. I sulked a bit and left the room. However, my rents called me back and agreed I could have it done (A sudden change of heart?) but my dad said, 'So long as you wear my jewelry'. Fair enough. I then got the hour long rant from my mum about the dangers of piercings and how this will be the last one, and that she wasn't really happy with it and all that. ... read more

My first real piercing, my navel.

my first real piercing, my navel Ever since I was little I've wanted a belly button piercing. My older cousin who I had admired a lot got one, and it thought it was so pretty. I knew that my mom had thought that nose piercings "could" be pretty, but I didn't know about belly button piercings. So one day, I asked her if it would be okay if I got it done. She didn't seem too upset by me asking, but she said we'd talk about it. I went to my dad's house the following weekend and talked to my ... read more

My first navel piercing

I'm pretty much a complete wimp with pain, before my navel piercing I'd already chickened out of getting my ears pierced when I was younger and I only got them done last year! Once my boyfriend and his mum finally persuaded me to get them done and I found out that after five years of being terrified of piercing it wasn't that bad and in fact, I didn't even feel them being pierced. My mum was fine about me getting my ears done seeing as it was such a popular piercing, but I think she was relieved that I was ... read more

My eighth piercing!

I am fairly new to the piercing/tattoo scene. You could probably call me a spectator/infrequent participator. I had my lobes pierced when I was three and fourteen with guns. Two years ago I decided to step out of the box a little bit and get my left cartilage done (that was stepping out of the box for me, haha). My boyfriend (now fiance) went with me to get his lobes pierced (his first piercings). I had a hard time with my cartilage - it got infected a few times. I got my ear lobes done a third time, but had ... read more

I finally got my belly done....a year later and i still LOVE it!

Well, I'd been planning for a while to write up my experience on my belly button piercing, which i got a year ago, last summer, but...I'm just finally getting to it, which isn't necessarily so bad because I can describe my healing process as well. Okay, well, since I was about 14 years old, I'd wanted to get my navel pierced (I know, I started a little young, whoopsies). I talked to my dad for a while (him being the less conservative of the two parents), did a LOT of research, and finally got permission to go get it done ... read more


Although I am only seventeen I feel like I have waited a lifetime to get my navel pierced. I had begged my mom since I was twelve years old. Finally when my younger cousin got it done I knew it was my turn. We were on vacation in Ocean City, NJ so I figured I'd just get it done on the boardwalk one night. It turns out that no where in Ocean City is allowed to pierce (it is also a "dry" town by the way). So one night my family and I drove down to Wildwood (another shore town) ... read more
