I wanted my belly button pierced ever since I first heard of it but I wasn’t really serious about doing it I just wanted one too. I moved to a state that doesn’t have many good piercing places so I waited til I was on vacation to get it done.
I found a good place that a lot of people had been to that said right on their own website that they will numb your skin first if you ask them. After seeing that I was definately going to get it done and I was sooo excited for over a month waiting to go on vacation to get it finally done!!
We get there and the guy says no we don’t do that here I can’t numb it….I told him what the website with his name on it said and he didn’t have anything to say…
I was really pissed and freaking out and changing my mind!! But I went through with it anyways after walking around all nervous for a few minutes. I closed my eyes the whole time and had my mom cover them too just to make sure lol.
The clamps didn’t hurt at all but the needle did…it was only like 5 seconds of pain though. I was afraid to sit up and move around because I thought it would hurt but when I finally sat up I couldn’t feel a thing at all anymore!
I was so afraid that sitting in the car with my stomach bent right over my piercing would hurt too but I still didn’t feel a thing! I was so amazed and so happy! Some stupid girl was trying to tell me that it would puss and bleed soon so I told her that it only happens when it get infected and it hasn’t happened to me at all.
I’ve only had it done for 2 weeks but it feels like I’ve had it forever! I only wash it with soap when I’m in the shower and I’m thinking about not even doing that anymore because my skin is really sensitive to the soap it’s just too harsh and it’s drying out my skin and causing the piercing to be red all the time and to be kind of sore.
So I stopped using the soap so much and it’s way better it actually looks like it’s healing now that I only do the sea salt s! oaks twi ce a day.
I was also VERY happy that they had my favorite color belly gem to get pierced with! I saw the same exact one online and was praying they would have it at the shop and they did yay!!!
