"A navel for a chubby and a tragus for a wuss"

've been interested in piercing for a few years - since I first got my lobes gunned at 14, but it wasn't until I reached the ripe old age of 21 that I actually got something other than my ears impaled. When I first discovered rec.arts.bodyart and BME about seven or eight months ago, I was immediately inspired to get my nostril and eyebrow pierced, but unfortunately a fear of what my parents (who are paying my maintainance at University) and my holiday employers (who are mainly 'conservative' as I'm a secretary) would think put me off. I was disheartened ... read more

Navel piercing from hell

When I was 16, my friend got her navel pierced, and came over and showed it to my stepdad. I just mentioned that I was going to have it done on my 18th birthday, without asking permission or anything, and out of nowhere, he said that he'd sign whatever forms were necessary for me to do it now as long as I never got anything on my face. However, when I go off to college, I'm still having my tongue, eyebrow, and ears (just a couple more times) done ;). Anyway, back to the point. We went to the local ... read more

Navel Piercing: One girls long experience...

ell, I finally got my navel re-pierced. I had it pierced about 3 years ago and I had it done with a gun. Yes, I know that's a bad thing to do but that's the only place I knew of. Back then it wasn't very mainstream so the information wasn't readily available and I was honestly too naive to go about finding it. I remember the place that did it too, it's kinda funny now that I think about it, no harm done. It was a hair salon that had the wonderful gun, this guy hairstylist took me to the ... read more

Navel Experience

finally got my navel pierced! I said "finally", because I know there are people who just on an impulse pick up a safety pin and iave themselves a pierce, but for me, believe it or not, I went to eight different places before I found a piercer I felt comfortable with and went ahead with it. Not to mention the hours I went online. Educated shopper to the extreme... The first place I went to, I walked in, and somewhat nervously told the guy that I am considering getting my belly button pierced, and want to ask him a few ... read more

Self-Navel Experience

ave wanted to have some part of me modified in some way for 3 or 4 years, but I never actually had the guts to do something. Until I met John. My best friend (John) and I had talked at length about what we could pierce, but since his dad is a preacher and my dad is the choir director at our church, we couldn't have our eyebrows or noses pierced or anything, so we decided to do our bellybuttons. note: both of our parents think piercing is a sin and a mark of slavery. and since we don't have ... read more

Getting pierced with my niece

ting pierced with my niece I had been a fan of BME for a while when my 14-year-old niece Amber came to visit me this summer in Fairbanks, Alaska. Although I have a couple tattoos, I had never thought that much about getting pierced. She had, on the other hand, given it much thought and was anxious to get her navel pierced, and possibly her tongue. So after she called her mother in Arizona to get permission, I took her down to the only professional piercing place we could find (actually she found it after talking to people at a ... read more
