Belly Piercing Story

By Britany, Tutwiler, Ms

I had been stretching all year about getting my belly pierced and December 20th 2007 the day. I went to the Southland mall to get my belly button pierced and when I walked to the back the lady tried to use a old needle with blood on it…

I ran out no one new what was wrong. So I went to the tattoo shop and he measured it and then began to clean it. He marked the piercing spot to and told me to check to see if it was even, and where i desired. I layed down and he began. I took a deep breath as instructed and it happened when I released.

I chose a cute pink one! 😉

Ghetto Gurls!

Belly Button Piercing Story

By Erika, Brooklyn, NY

I wanted to get my belly pierced for the longest since last yr when I was 16. I was never into the whole piercing bellies thing – I was more into the piercing tongues thing. When I was about to turn 16 I wanted to get a piercing!

I decided to get my cartilage pierced 2 days after my 16th b-day(12.28.07) then later on the next yr(08) I decided I want another piercing but I didn’t know what. So it was either tongue or belly. I wanted a tongue ring since I was 10 (seriously) so I told myself when I get older I would get one but I decided not 2 get one yet and wait til im about 20.

Cuz it is very hard to hide a tongue ring especially when ppl keep lookin in ur mouth (especially from ur parents). But something about belly piercing caught my eye when I was 16. They seem so cute and pretty and yet so discreet. So I decided to get my belly pierced since its more discreet and really pretty (so my parents wouldn’t find it, plus they would kill me more if I got my tongue pierced) 🙂

So I told myself that I would do it when my b-day comes which is 12.26 so I had to wait all year then the day comes and I couldn’t do it cuz of lack of money and lack of confidence.

I told myself if I would get my belly pierced I would have a tone flat stomach. It was at first over the summer but I tend to eat a lot in the winter so my stomach was lookin soft. So I didn’t do it & I decided to do it in February as a late b-day gift. But I was afraid of going because I thought they were going to ask me for ID(since im only 17).

But I asked some friends around school and I found 2 shops that barely asked for ID especially for belly piercing(I guess it’s because it’s such a common piercing now). So I decided to do it on Friday (2/6/09) after school; I called it Ghetto Gurl Day(since my close friends called me Ghetto for having my cartilage pierced 2x but I don’t even know what it means to be ghetto!).

Me and my friend Jeannine went on Flatbush to some tattoo shop(it was pretty clean). While we were walkin I started to have 2nd thoughts but we arrived to the place and there was no turning back. We went inside and I asked the lady how much was it and she said $25(good price!) then she took the money from me and called the piercer(I was so happy, and surprised she didn’t ask for ID).

He came and told me to sit. Jeannine was many steps back because she didn’t want to see. While I was on the chair I asked him if it was going to hurt and he said No and I asked him if it was gonna be quick and he sed Yes and he was RIGHT!

It was quick & easy. All I felt was a lot of pressure. After that he just told me wash it with hand soap. I left and Jeannine couldn’t look at me. She said she thought I was going to chicken out but I didn’t! Before I had gotten my belly pierced I did a lot of research on the risk, procedure, aftercare so I wouldn’t be clueless.

I even watched Youtube videos on it!(if u go on youtube watch sabina belly piercing its good) I practically know how to do it myself!(I was gonna do it myself but I was too afraid to pierce myself, my body wouldn’t let me do it). I became obsess with belly rings, I would stare @ ppl with belly rings and I would envy them, that’s how bad it got.

So if u r thinking about getting ur belly pierced make sure u do the research and go with someone. I finally gotten it pierced (professionally of course). So now I’m a 17 year old and I have my belly pierced and I can’t wait till it heals so I could change the ring(hopefully it heals by the summer so I could show it off at the beach).

Hopefully my parents don’t find out anytime soon especially my conservative sister Sherly!

Awesome Belly Piercing

Belly Piercing Story

Well i have wanted my belly button pierced since i have been 13 but of course my parents wouldnt agree to take me…

But sure enought two days after i turned 18 i went to get it done!

My parents had gone out of town to see a football game so it was perfect timing. I was quit nervous that day but it all worked out.

On that rainy saturday my boyfriend had planned on taking me out for a birthday dinner along with the piercing. I got more and more nervous as i got closer the the tattoo shop. Finally we got there and I told the lady what I wanted and she had me fill out some papers and pick out which ring i wanted.

Next thing knew i was sittin in the chair watching this guy get ready to pierce me. He put the clamp on and i looked away as he stuck the needle through(Which i didnt feel at all!).

About a half minute later he said your done! It was so fast i didnt feel a thing. I was so happy as i ran out to show my boyfriend who was waiting in the front room. As we left i was so excited i almost slipped on the icy deck! 🙂

Its been a month since i got it done and its healing great and of course i told my parents and they didnt mind! All in all it was worth the time and money i love it so much!

I’m Still Hiding Mine!!

Belly Piercing Story

Hey, i have had my belly piercing for over 5 weeks and i love it soooo much. i got it done for my 15th birthday because i asked my mum if i could have it as my present and she said yes, i also got my third ear piercing and the top of my ear done because i thought you only live once, right? 🙂

I don’t live with my mum i live with my dad and his partner, they have no idea that i have it done, i am not only hiding my belly piercing but also my new ear piercings…i intend to tell my dad when i am 16 because i know he’ll be so angry if i tell him i got it done when i was 15, i had 2 beg him for ages to get him to allow me to have my 2nd ear piercings done…whats he going to say if he finds out i got my thirds, top AND belly done!

I feel bad about going behind his back but i really wanted them done. i want 1 more piercing and that is my nose but i am not getting it done behind my dads back plus i can’t hide it so i asked him but he said ‘when your 16’ its only 11 more months but i can’t wait, i wanna get it done in the summer so it has time 2 heal because at my school u r not allowed to have them, my school is so strict, your only allowed to wear 1 pair of earrings and they have 2 be studs and silver or gold, how stupid is that!!! and it is a girls school- we are girls, we need to wear more than one pair!

So i am hiding my thirds and top from the teachers at school and my dad and his partner at home! When i woke up on the 21st of December (my birthday) i was soo excited and extremely nervous. i didn’t eat breakfast which isn’t a good idea because if you haven’t eaten and u r scared of needles there’s a good chance you’ll faint but i am not scared of them and so was fine, but don’t risk it!

So me, my mum, and my little brother drove into town and when i saw the shop in the distance my heart began to accelerate and i remember thinking ‘you’ll be fine it will all be over soon and tonight you will have all your piercings done’ but i also couldn’t believe it was finally here I WAS GETTING MY BELLY BUTTON PIERCED! BTW incase you are wondering you have to be 16 to get it done on your own because you have to fill out a form but my mum was with me so she did them for me.

The women sent us upstairs for the forms to be filled in and there was a women waiting there-her ears were covered in earings there was no space on her ears!-but it looked cool.

She let me chose my third piercing earrings, my top earrings and my belly bar (i went for a rose double crystal 1), she then told me that she was going to pierce my 3rd’s but was sending me upstairs for the rest.

She told me that the top was going to be pierced with a needle and that made me panic and i nearly said i don’t want the top done but she said it didn’t hurt at all and my mum said just get it done, so i went through with it, i have to say my 3rds hurt more than my top and belly put 2gether!

When she had done my 3rds i went upstairs where another women was waiting for me, she was really kind to me. My mum had to go move the car and i said i would wait until she was back to get my belly done. The women put a small black dot on my ear and asked me if that was ok i said yes and she told me to lye down on the table. she clamped my ear, sprayed it and then pocked the needle through…i didn’t feel a thing!

The women was right! the process was the same as the belly piercing so that gave me some confidence. My mum wasn’t back yet so i decided to get my belly done and surprise her when she got back. The women dotted my belly button and asked me if it was ok and i said yes then i lay down on the table and lifted up my top, she put the clamp on my stomach i was nervous again but the women talked to me and distracted me.

I was explaining to her how my dad had no idea what i was doing and that i wasn’t going to tell him until i was 16 and while i was talking she pushed the needle through my stomach i panicked for a split second but before i realised that she had tricked me it was over. I couldn’t help but smile it didn’t hurt at all!

I got up and looked in the mirror…it looked amazing it didn’t bleed or anything! I heard my mum coming up the stairs, so I put my top down, she came into the room unaware that it was all done, I smiled and showed her she liked it 2, i hugged my piercer and thanked her and headed out of the shop. I was scared of touching it and i wouldn’t lean forward when I sat down because I didn’t want to agitate it.

It hasn’t got infected yet and last week I changed the piercing because I bought the cutest turquoise belly bar and wanted to put it in and because my piercing was annoying me because as it heeled the bar had moved down and was sticking out too much. I was soo worried incase I couldn’t get it back in or it got infected but everything went great. It felt so weird changing it because of the holes but I didn’t mind. The wholes were a small price to pay for something as beautiful as a belly piercing!

Belly Piercing StoryI still have the turquoise belly bar in now as you can see in my picture and this one is smaller so only the balls of the barbell are showing and not the bar. I probably shouldn’t have changed it so early but i couldn’t wait, I was lucky that it didn’t get infected, your actually supposed to leave it in for 3 months, I would advise u to leave it as long as u can incase it goes wrong.

I haven’t got the flattest of stomachs but i don’t care because the piercing is for me to see and no one else to see, I am tempted to get the bottom of my belly pierced but I’ll have to ask my mum…another piercing to hide from my dad! lol …well that’s if my mum lets me 😉

If you want your belly pierced then get it done and don’t let anything stop you, they are great, if you don’t have the flattest of stomachs it doesn’t matter!

If you are scared of it hurting, a little pain is a small sacrifice to make for something as amazing as a belly piercing. Mine didn’t hurt like so many other peoples belly piercings wouldn’t have hurt but that doesn’t mean you won’t feel a thing.

Everyone is different but I can safely say on behalf of everyone who has there belly button done that it isn’t unbearable, don’t worry it is over in a matter of seconds hope you enjoyed my belly button piercing story and hope it has helped you decide whether you want to get a belly piercing or any other piercing, although i would advise you if you are planning on hiding it from your parents don’t go swimming in a bikini! lol…I still haven’t figured that 1 out for myself yes..but after 2 more months i should be able to take it out and leave it but the holes will be visible so I will wear a costume for swimming when my dad is there until i am 16! lol

Thank you for reading my story! 🙂

Belly Button Piercing Story

Well,i got my belly button pierced when i was,say 14. my sister, 9 months younger than i, had wanted hers pierced for longer than i had. but she wasn’t allowed to get hers done for she was only 13.

So, i went out with my friends, and i came home, noticing a whole bunch of shoes at the front door. so i walked into my sisters room about to greet all her friends that had been over. when i opened the door, i see my sister lying on her back, shirt up, and her two good friends one holding scissors through my sister, and another pulling up the skin on her stomache.

I was in complete shock, and not to mention completely discusted. i was the older sister who freaked a bit, but i let them finish. knowing if there were mistakes made, then they would have to learn the hard way. my sister is now 15. she still has her belly pierced. it is a tad crooked, but its still cute. good job girls !

Belly Button Piercing Story

Well like every teenage girl, the first time you see any piercing the first thing we do is run to my parents and ask “Can I get one?” and we all hear the same thing “NO! Wait till your 18!”.

Well that was what i did graduated high school and went off to college like a good girl knowing in the back of my head that once i was out on my own i could finally get the things i wanted.

So i started off with a couple tattoos (3 to be correct ) but i still had the desire to pierce something lol! It was either a navel piercing or a tongue ring. I didnt decide that until i made it to the tattoo/piercing shop.

When i got there when i was read the prices i knew then that the belly was the way i was gonna go this time. I know cheap but im a college student money dont grow on trees! The only problem i had was i had to wear a captive ring until it heals cause they claim it helps it heal better!

I payed the $50, signed the needed papers, and my sister-in-law and i waited in the lobby til it was my turn. Soon enough he walked in and we all walked to the back of the store to a room playing rock music and a dentist chair in it. He marked my stomach with the Purple Pen and after telling him i liked the location, he told be to lie on my back in the chair. He got the clamp and told me to breath in then out deeply. When i took the breath out he stuck the needle through. let me tell you it didnt hurt but felt like a pinch then it was over.

It been only two weeks and i have big plans for my little whole. Ive been ring shopping already. My plans next was getting a nose ring but the place where i work doesnt allow them. HOW RUDE RIGHT?! I guess i’ll just get my bottom navel done or my hips.

When i change this captive ring, imma post the pics cause i hate this thing!

BYE! DONT FORGET TO VOTE 4 ME! LUV YA!

Belly Button Piercing Story

I’ve had my belly button pierced twice…

The first time i got it was on my 16th bday but before i got it i had to beg my dad a million times just to get him to say yes and he basically just gave it to me as my bday gift, so afta bday shoppin i went straight to the piercing salon and got it over & done with and it didnt hurt at all!!

But after it was done i noticed that it was crooked and he had only pierced a thin amount of skin but it was barely noticeable, but it bothered me alot!!

But my firends told me that you couldn’t even tell so i left it alone for 2 years and it wasnt hard to take care of either, but mine took a year to heal… but after a lot of thinkin i decided to take it out and get it re-pierced kuz if i have it pierced i might as well be happy with it right??

So thats what i did i took it out and waited 4 months to get it re-done & lemme tell you the 2nd time around it hurt more kuz of the scar tissue but its nothing unbareable… and now im happy with it!! 🙂

But heres a picture of my first belly piercing!!

Belly Button Piercing Story

Belly Piercing Story – Determination!

By: Ashley, Austin, Tx, USA

Belly Button Piercing Story

I had wanted to get my belly button pierced ever since I was twelve years old. My 16th birthday rolled around in April and I decided that would be an appropriate time to ask. Well, I asked, and got, the classic answer, “No!” My parents would not budge. To my dad it was inappropriate and to my mom it was up to dad.

So I wasn’t getting anywhere. I was pretty upest and was determined to get my belly button pierced. November came and still hadn’t gotten anyhwere so I decided to take matters into my own hands and pierce it myslef.

So on night I pierced it with an earring stud and then the next day when to get the hole stretched so that a standard sized barbell would fit in the hole. I got a barbell with clear stones at the top and bottom. I loved it!

My mom got home from work that day and I went out to her car lifted up my shirt so she could see and she was pissed! She got used to it about an hour later and decided it wasn’t all that bad. Score I got mom’s approval now the trick was keeping it from dad.

Well that was easy to do! January comes and I started noticing that the hole began to get thin so I went had had a piercer look at it and he told me that my body was rejecting the piercing. I was upset! So I took the barbell out and let it heal.

So I talked to my mom and ask her if she would take me to get it professionally done in 3 weeks. She agreed! I was so excited and anxiously awaited the day! So three weeks past by ever so slowly and that night we drove to Platinum Ink and when we walked in we went up to the desk and told the man that I wanted to get my bellybutton pierced.

He asked for our driver’s licenses, made a copy of them, and gave us a stack of papers to fill out. We filled the paper’s out and returned them to the man at the desk and then I picked out the barbell that would sit in my stomach for the next 6 months.

Jason (my piercer) called us back to the room where I would be pierced. He first marked me to with a purple pen and asked me to look in the mirror to make sure that I liked the alignment. Then I was asked to lie on a dentist like chair. He stuck the needle in then put the jewelry in and I popped up out of the chair and ran to the mirror to look at my new piercing!

I was in love with it! I was so excited and couldn’t wait to show everyone except for my dad of course.
In June we were at my brother’s baseball tournament in Houston, Texas and I was going to work out so I put on my sports bra and realized that I had forgotten my shirt in my suitcase. I didn’t know that to do because my dad was right outside in the room.

So I just waited for a little bit. Low and behold he bust in and see’s my piercing! He was like what is that and I was like my bellybutton ring and he asked who took me and when I got it. I told him that I went myself and got it for my birthday.

LIE! He wasn’t too happy. He quickly got over it and not another word was said about it! I got lucky on that one! I absolutely LOVE my bellybutton piercing and would suggest it to anyone considering getting it done!

My Belly Piercing :]

Belly Piercing story

Well, ever since i can remember, i’ve always wanted my bellybutton pierced. I loved the look of it. Anyway, i begged my parents for years, but the answer was always no, which sucked. They always came back with the same defence “you’re too young” So i left it for a while.

Now that i’m 13, a few more of my friends had theirs done, and their stories just made me want to get mine done even more! The place i wanted it done at, one day had half price on belly piercings ($30) and i begged, but still the answer was “no”

A few months after that, my friend asked if i wanted to get ti done with her, i was thrilled. I asked my mum, and surprisingly she said yes! I was so excited. We rang up and booked an appointment. The day came around very quickly and that morning, my friend rang up and said she couldnt get hers done. Looks like i was on my own. Mum was a bit worried i would chicken out, but i kept reassuring her i wouldnt.

That morning we went to the chemist and bought some numbing cream. I applied to the navel area and waited half an hour for it to numb. We arrived at the place, which might i add was the cleanest place in the area. We walked in, and by then i was really really scared, but also excited at the same time. The lady was really really nice. She gave me a form that i had to fill out and sign. And then she bought out all the bars that i could choose from. They were all gorgeous, but i chose a pink one, i couldn’t wait for it to be in my belly.

I sat down and waited for a little while, i was so scared that i was now shaking haha. She took me through to a little room and it all looked soo clean which helped my nerves a little, but not much LOL. The lady that was doing it was really nice and i asked some questions, and she gave me answers. She told me she had hers done, and it was pain she definately would go through again. Which helped. She then got an alcohol wipe, and wiped it over my whole belly, so much for the numb cream, hahaha. Mum thought that i definately chicken out, but i said i had come to far to chicken out now.

After that, she told me to stand up really straight so she could mark it, she rubbed the mark out a few times, and then she finally got it straight. She then told me to lie down on a really comfy bed thing, and then she got all the things ready. By then my heart was beating so fast! She told my mum that she could hold my hand if she liked, so i did. She talked me through the whole process as she was doing it which was heaps good. She clamped it, which felt weird, but definately didn’t hurt. And then without even telling me, she put the needle through, i squeezed my mum’s hand so tight, but surprisingly, it was over in about 2-3 seconds. I felt a bit silly for being so scared.

She then had to weave the belly bar through my belly. It was a bit of tugging and stuff, but i wouldnt say it hurt. She then told me that i could sit up, and i couldn’t believe that it was over that quick. I looked down at my belly, and fell in love, i had my belly button pierced! I was so happy. The bar looked gorgeous. She applied betadine to the area and put a patch over it, which i had to wear just for that day. It stung the tiniest bit as i got up and took the first few steps, but not much. She then gave me a bottle of betadine to take home which only costed $2. All in all the whole thing costed $82, but it was so worth it. She gave me a piece of paper which ahd all the things i needed to take care of it. I also needed to apply dettol handwash in the shower every night.

The first night i did everything that i was asked to do (betadine,dettol etc) and i never touched it. That night when i went to sleep i accidently rolled onto my belly. It was a little bit sore but not much. I’ve now had it done for about 4 weeks, and i’ve never forgot to put betadine or dettol on it. It’s going pretty good, it gets crusty from time to time, but nothing too serious. I’m glad that i got it done. I went out and bought 3 new gorgeous bars. I can probably change it soon, and i can’t wait until i can 🙂

Anyone who wants to get it done, seriously go for it, it’s so worth it, and prices may differ for different stores. I’m glad i went ahead with mine :]
