The Perfect Pierce!

Belly Piercing Story

Scared, terrified, everything imaginable! 😯

I had wanted to pierce my belly button for as long as I could remember! The first time I saw one was in high school and I had wanted one since then. I was so scared to get one due to all the terrible stories my friends had told me about their experiences with getting it done.

“It hurts, it bleeds like crazy, it can get ripped out, etc.” I finally sucked it up and got it done 8 days ago. I would do it again in a heart beat. 😉

Best thing I ever did for myself, I was so proud I finally just went and did it. I got to the shop, they prepped for it, and I went back in the room. I was shaking, both nervous and excited. They told me to lean back, so I did and closed my eyes. He started to count and he did it on 2 and not 3 so I didn’t anticipate the actually minute he was going to put it through.

The needle didn’t hurt at all! He then slid the bar in and tightened the balls on the ends. He gave me a mirror and I thought, “Gorgeous!” I finaly had what I wanted for so long. When he was finished, he told what I could and couldn’t do and for how long. He then gave me a bottle of H2Ocean and that has been awesome!

The past 8 days it has not gotten infected, hurt or bled. It is faintly sore when I sit for a long time just because it readjusts when I stand up. So I would surely go do it again! I love it and it’s just perfect! I don’t have any jewelry for it yet, but I want all the pink ones I can find for it!

I can’t wait for it to finally heal and I can start switching it out with fun jewelry! I have fallen in love with the bright colored ones, glittery ones, and I have even seen the “Bioplast” ones that are bright and flexible. I’m not sure on how those are in the skin, but I haven’t seen any bad reviews on them either.

I am anxious to start building my collection up and showing off my piercing at the beach.

My advice to anyone wanting to get this done:

Go and get it done! Don’t wait years like I did, it does not hurt at all!

I thought my 3rd hole in my ears hurt lots worse. Go get it done and enjoy it! 😉
