My sketchy belly button piercing

Belly Piercing story

First off, I am a boy, my name’s Grant, and I have wanted a belly button piercing ever since the summer of 2008.

But, ever since two months ago, I’ve really started seriously wanting one. You’d think my parents would be cool with it because they are like creative laid-back artists; but they’re not. So, my mom said that if I improved my posture (I’m a sloucher) she would consider taking me to get one. But, after I improved my posture for a month and a half she still didn’t let me get one.

So, I decided I would ask an acquaintance of mine who has many piercings and wants to be a piercer when she grows up to do it for me. So I called her so she could prepare and get all the materials. (Bactine, gloves, jewelry, needle, etc.) A few days later, before my lunch period which is during her gym class, I went outside of my school during school (at the risk of getting in trouble by the security guard) and she did the piercing for me.

The piercing wasn’t bad at all. At first she tried to use a clamp but my stomach is too flat so she just put some cleanser on my stomach, marked it where she was going to put it through, then put the needle through. She then had to put the jewelry in, which went well, but the ball for the jewelry was hard to put on and took ages to put on.

Then was the best part, after paying her a mere 20$ I went to go show off my piercing at lunch. I was very proud that I had gotten it. Now I clean it twice a day with dove soap and I take the best care of it possible to have a clean and healthy piercing. Good luck to everyone keeping yours clean or getting one. =)


  1. Oh my god i love you! my friend did mine as well. i was squeezing her sisters hand to death xD i didnt feel a thing (‘:

  2. dude… dove soap is the wrong thing to heal a piercing with… use non-iodized salt (1tsp) and warm freshly boiled water (1 cup)… dove soap might irritate he piercing and lead to an infection…

  3. I had my friends mom take me, we went to a really ghetto place… I was scared out of my mind ! But eventually it healed and it was 4 months yesterday. My mom still doesn’t know! But Im soooo happy I got it ! And the circle around his its because when you clean it you hold a cup of the cleaning stuff over it, it leaves a mark haha i had that too!

  4. Thats cool man I have one to i love it and so does my wife.I have got some weird looks sometimes but you know what i dont give a d@#n.

  5. I just got mine pierced, but before that my mom pierced it and it turned out the needle she used was too small for the barbell xD You should clean it with sea salt instead of soap. It’ll make your piercing less likely to get an infection. You can get some at any grocery store.

  6. I’m a boy too, and i did my navel piercing 3 months ago, but unfortnetly my body rejected it because the hole was very superficial… 🙁 ok, let’s go repiercing… I love my belly buton with a piercing, and now i’ll put a titanium piercing (the previous was in surgical steel), and provide best aftercare than my failed piercing… Meanwhile, i enjoy my fresh nose piercing…

  7. thats so awsome!
