By Bree, from Post Falls.
So I’d been considering getting my belly done for quite some time but had put it off because I was nervous about how much it might hurt and because I wasn’t quite as fit as I wanted to be to show it off.
Anyways, I recently started working out and changed my diet and lost some weight, so as a treat to myself I decided to finally get it pierced today 🙂
I have alot of other piercings already, so I knew which shop I’d be headed to. Its nice and clean and the piercer is super friendly. When I got there he was set up and ready to go right away and assured me it would be painless compared to my other piercings, (which didn’t hurt anyways, I was just nervous) so i knew I’d be okay.
He marked the dots on my skin and we joked about how my belly button is a little off center. I laid down on the chair and before I could say anything it was done! completely painless 🙂 He explained the aftercare and I paid and tipped him and we left. (Always tip a great piercer, they’ll remember you when you come back. ou will come back haha…piercing is addictive.)
the only pain I’ve felt at all was when the seatbelt in the car snagged it a bit.
Its only been about six hours since I got it done but already I love it! I recommend it to anyone thinking about it. Don’t be discouraged by any negative stories you read online. Before I went I was spooked because everywhere I read it said I was in for major pain. I even had one friend describe it as worse than a tattoo, but none of that is realistic.
Its a quick pinch, not even as bad as a nose piercing. (Which for me and most people I’ve talked to was painless.) I really hope it heals quickly like all of my previous piercings because I’m excited to try out all the different kinds of jewelry available 🙂 I didn’t have a choice of starter jewelry so for now I have a plain titanium barbell. I can’t wait to show it off when summer comes around!
