Yet another Navel Piercing

You've probably heard the story of some teenage girl getting her navel pierced countless times before. I won't be any different with this. My cousin, who was five years older than myself had her navel pierced in a market when her and her family went away for a week during the summer before my thirteenth birthday. As soon as I took one look at it, I was adamant that I wanted one. I looked up to and admired my cousin in many ways; I wanted to be just like her in as many ways possible. My parents saw it and ... read more

It didn't hurt.

I'd started toying with the idea of getting my bellybutton pierced around the time I was fourteen. My parents aren't extremely strict, and I knew they would allow me to get the piercing done; my mom had already grudgingly okayed the idea. My dad was not really one for promoting the piercing at first, but afterwards he didn't mind it at all. The only obstacle in the way? I used to play soccer and springboard dive all year round, and while the piercing was in its healing process, I didn't want a wet bathing suit rubbing against it or a ... 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

Start of the obsession

I was young and giddy. Undebatably dumb, but who isn't when they're young? Even if thats the case, a moment of youthful stupidity has breed a lifetime of obsession. I was 14. Piercings in my community were still practically unheard of at the time. I was pretty cutting edge with my 3 *ekk* gunned holes in my ears. Yet somehow my stepfather's friendship with the men at the local studio had supplied me with the compulsion that seems to overcome every teen girl at some point. I wanted my navel pierced. So badly I was willing to actually do what ... read more

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
