I’m 17 yrs old and have been wanting to get my belly pierced for a couple of weeks now, ever since i saw this eye catching tweety belly button ring at walmart. I wanted it so bad but my mom didnt get it. A week later she came home with it i was soooo happy! 😀
but she saved the receipt because she thought i was going to be too chicken to get it :lol:.. I wasnt to sure if the piercing would look right because i have an outtie. I spent weeks looking online for outie naval piercings but didnt see any normal ones. So i asked my mom and she was all for it.😉
I went Tues 7/14/09 to my tattoo shop on sunrise. all my friends went there so i decided to go there too. So i worked my nerve up and everything, to be told that i needed to get a paper notarized and bring i.d and my birth certificate because my mom and i didnt have the same last name 🙁
i was really disappointed, but nevertheless i came back the next day. On 7/15/09 i was all pumped up and ready to go. My two close friends cayla and kristina were so excited for me they insisted on coming. My twin sister Erika came too. I had all this support! So my mom picked everyone up and off we went.She thought it was too funny everyone coming just for a piercing. In the car my friends and sister interviewed me using their cameras.
I was excited but yet very nervous. ( im a big baby!! i have a low tolerance for pain! :shock:) We pulled in and went inside. The piercers were all men and were quite funny. i signed the papers and in the room i went. My sister wanted to videotape the process but was not allowed 🙁
i had a new piercer in training and he was having a difficult time marking me ( because of the outtie) so the head piercer came. i was all ready and laid on the table. i was so scared and was tensing up and they told me to relax. i held my moms hand and squeezed very hard when they inserted the needle. It hurt, but was bearable. I got up and looked in the mirror i liked it! but its towards the side because when the ring is in the middle it hurts so the piercer moved it to the side for now.
They gave me a big bottle of sea salt solution and told me to clean it 4-6 times a day and to make sure to wash my hands before doing so! When i left the place my piercing hut really bad i didnt kno it was going to be this sore. I took some tylenol and after an hour it felt way better. I showed all my friends and they like it, (when i move it to the middle 😆 ) I love my piercing and i think it was all worth it! And mine is diff from everyone elses because i have an outtie! and i had my moms permission! : -)
P.S. Please mind the hair and couple of bumps from in grown hair on the tummy. i didnt have time to shave before i left!!
