12 years young.

By Emily, from Mt. Keira, Australia.

I got my belly button pierced when i was12 years old. It was a very painful proxess resulting in me fainting.

I kept the original piercing bar in for about a month or so. That was when the stones fell out after my first swimming experience.

So, i went to a tattoo parlour and got a new bar put in. I knew it wasn’t healed. So i didn’t do it myself. I didn’t do it myself until my piercing was about 6 months old. But even then i was paranoid about steralising, clean hands, anti bact soap and everything.

I’m now 14 and have the same belly piercing. Im still fair paranoied about it because i have made it this far without infection and i love it a heap. Even today i call it the best $90 ever spent.


  1. im 13 and im getting mine done for my birthday and my friend is getting hers dont with me and we want to know like on a scale 1-10 how bad it hurts .

  2. I got mine peirced and im thirteen i thaugh it was painless. I spent 30 dollars on it though. Mine never got infected and i changed it a week and a half after i got it pierced. It still never got infect i dont know why everyone freaks about it but i do clean it a lot so that might be why. OH and seirra get one with a ball on each side because if you get a dangley you will soon regret it!!

  3. You don’t want a dangly piercing siaraaa because first of all they are not allowed to put a dangly piercing in when it freashly pierced and most dangly belly rings are fake so be care full !! Btw I’m 12 and have mine done 🙂

  4. i’m 13 and i’m turning 14 next month, and i’m getting one for my birthday, but i don’t know what kind too get! i know i don’t want a hoop, but i don’t know what the other options are, everyone says “dangley” ones are “hott” hahah. any helpp?

  5. Hiii, i got my belly button at 12 done too! In a few months i tunred thirteen though. Mine still isnt healed yet but i hope it will soon so i can change it!
    Yours looks great by the way!
