A Girl In My Class Showed me Belly Button Piercing & I Ended Up Getting One Myself!

Belly Button Piercing

By Jay’ln Estell




It all started back in high school, 10th grade. When a girl in class showed off her belly button ring. I saw it and was mesmerized! So much that I wanted one myself. Not entirely sure how that came to mind, but it did.

And so I did research and looked into getting one. I was so excited about getting one until I came back to reality…

I am a guy.

Since I was 16, I would have to ask for permission. Knowing my mother and the way she views/viewed things. I just had a gut feeling she was going to tell me no. And so my 17th birthday was rolling around very soon. She previously asked me what did I want for my birthday, I hadn’t given her an answer.

Many times riding in the car, I was itching to just ask her. At that time I had already learned that the worst possible scenario in asking a question is “no”. So I got brave and asked her could I have a belly button ring for my 17th birthday…

And she said no as I assumed. And I knew it and I was mad at myself for asking. Her reason was because “belly button rings are for girls”. I was sad, upset and I totally gave up the idea.

I was over dramatic, but I was a teenager!

Waiting for 4 Years to Get Belly Piercing Done!

I have always wanted my belly button pierced since I was 14 because I thought it was cute. So I asked my mom and she said no not until I was 18. I waited 4 years later when I turned 18 on December 26th but couldn’t get it pierced on my birthday because I came on my period. So on December 30, 2014 was the day I decided to get my belly button pierced.

I was 18 so I didn’t need my mom’s permission to get my belly pierced. Me and my bestie went to a tattoo shop called Little Smitty’s located in Blue Island. I read some great reviews and I know a few people that got piercings and tattoos so I knew I was in good hands. My best friend was trying to calm me down because I was so scared. I had watched a lot of belly piercing videos a week or so before so I was extremely nervous! 😉

My hands were freezing cold when I entered the tattoo shop. I approached the desk with my best friend Reneeta and there was an older guy with full sleeve tattoos on both arms behind the desk. It will be an hour wait the guy behind the desk told me we have to sterilize the equipment.

So I waited my friend cracked jokes like you still have time to run away – I didn’t when I got mines done! I was so nervous that I was thinking about taking her up on her offer. That’s when I thought about how much I wanted and sacrificed to get this and I wasn’t just going to wimp out that quickly. So I sat there until the material was done being sterilized.

Belly Button Piercing Aftercare Tips and The Best Products

Belly Piercing aftercare tips




Follow these tips and your navel will heal quickly!

Proper belly button piercing aftercare is needed to heal your “brand new” navel piercing. The faster your new piercing heals, the sooner you can try new belly rings!

There are three stages in the healing process:

Stage One: The Inflammatory Stage. Your new piercing is an open wound. Bleeding, swelling and tenderness are all expected.

Stage Two: The Growth phase. This can last several months when you get a Belly Piercing. In this phase, your body reacts to heal the wound. ‘Crusties’ are common to this phase. Crusties are formed when some discharge from your new piercing dries and forms a crust on your jewelry. Never pick at crusties with dirty fingernails. During phase two, your body seals the channel of the piercing. Your piercing is considered healed at the end of this phase but may still be quite tender and will still need care.

Stage Three: The Maturation Phase. The channel of the piercing matures and becomes scar tissue. You may find that your piercing moves from stage two to three and back again many times before it heals fully. If a piercing is mistreated it can regress very quickly and you may find yourself back at square one.

As discussed, crusties, formed by a clear discharge from your piercing, are common. But do not confuse this clear discharge with pus, which is a thick, colored(yellowish-white) and foul-smelling substance. Pus is often indicative of infection.

One other normal piercing secretion is called sebum. This is often mistaken for pus but is recognizable by the fact that it is more solid, or cheese-like. It too, is foul-smelling. It is naturally produced by the body and is not a sign of infection.

Damn Navel Pierced Hurt Psyche

Navel piercing story

Okay well my time had come and was closing on me it was that time of the month.

No it wasn’t period time – it was piercing time ❗

I wanted so many piercing and being the age that I am 18 was a good start but unfortunately I couldn’t get them all – I had to stick with one that sucks.

I would’ve looked cool if I was to get a tragus piercing but it didn’t feel right I wanted to do something bold and exciting so after my mom dropped me off at Taboos and Tattoos (the piercing parlor) my dad and I had to wait who knows how long…

Finally it was my turn – before me was a girl my age and she had both her nipples pierced and her mom got her navel pierced.

Hey, my name is Alisha… Ever since I was 12 I’ve wanted a belly ring… One day at my moms, I took an earring and figured if I can pierce my ears with them, I can pierce my belly…

So I tried for hours trying to poke a dull earring through my belly button! It finally worked … A tiny little hole poked through my skin with a dull earring in it 😆

I went to school the next day showing it off like it was something cute. A few nights later I went out to a party with a friend & I was sitting in the backseat with my bf…

I have no clue what we were doing… But the next day we woke up in my friends bed & the earring totally ripped out of my skin 😯

As a child, my father sexually assaulted me. It was traumatic and life changing, even though I never realized it. As a result of my trauma, I never felt good about myself. I have struggled with bulimia, self-harm, anorexia, and depression. My confidence has been non-existent for most of the seventeen years of life.

About two years ago, I met my best friend Cassandra. She really helped me come out of my shell. She taught me what real beauty is and slowly, my confidence started to grow. I am artist. My entire life is about creating. Creativity and design is in my blood. I realized that I loved any type of fashion and discovered my fascination with piercing and tattoos. I found my voice through piercings 😉

I grew up in a family where it was only acceptable to have earlobe piercings. And only one in each ear. But slowly I realized that I wanted my second and third holes. So I wrote my mom a five page letter on why I felt I needed them.

Piercings make me feel like an individual. Almost everyone has some, but they have different meanings for each person. Every time I added an earring, I felt good!

I began to pull my fantasy of a belly button piercing out from the dark, shut off part of my brain. Each day I would tell Cassandra how much I wanted it. I wanted it more and more each day. One day I bought 110 different types of piercing jewelry on Amazon. When it came in the mail, I felt this peace come over me. Piercings are beauty. They are individuality. Piercings make me who I am!

I convinced Cassandra to try to pierce my belly button with a sewing needle. Nope. Your stomach skin is tough! It would not go through, no matter how hard she tried. So we ordered forceps and piercing needles online. I was so excited that I could hardly contain my excitement as I waited for the supplies to come in the mail!

I went to a place in NYC and it was nice they were kind, talked me step by step.

Also they told me the risk and the baggage that comes with the belly piercing.

My sister and I waited for a bit to calm my nerves down and then we went in the back, she signed a few papers, then I was ready to go ❗

The guy marked then made me lay down. He used a clamp and took the needle and pushed it through!

It kind of felt like a pinch but it wasn’t worse than a bee sting. He pulled the jewelry through and I was ready to go.

In the end he read me the aftercare instructions and told me about the h2Ocean spray. And I was out the door! 😉

Well I decided to get my belly pierced.

I got it done professionally and the guy told me to lay down. So I laid down he counted to 3 and it was over. I didn’t feel it at all! 😉

Well the bar was tight so he gave me an extended bar in the other one’s place.

Once it healed I tried putting in a normal sized one.

Now I’m stuck using the extended bar because he used too much skin 🙁

First belly button piercing

I was at this piecing shop with my bff, she was getting her belly button pierced.

So she asked me would I get one with her so I sad – “Yeah!” – but not realizing that this would be her second piercing.

She said it wouldn’t hurt.

It came down to me getting my piercing, she lied when he asked me did I work – I said “Yeah!” – like it wasn’t going to hurt, the man said that it might hurt more.

I bagged away so fast that my bff almost caught me in her arms – she said: “Just close your eyes…” so I did so.

When I opened them I saw him putting it in. It hurt so bad ‘cause my stomach muscles are so tight.

But it came out cute in the end! 😉
