Belly Button Piercing Experience

I always wanted to get my belly pierced. I thought it was sexy and so feminine. But my parents thought otherwise. Mum tried to convince me that it look yucky, and so unlady like. But she was barking the wrong tree. She didn’t even feel that way, she just didn’t want me to do anything like that until I was 18! 👿

Well, on November of my 16th year my friend took me to where she got hers done. We rocked up and the guy piercing my belly was really friendly, and he kept making jokes. I didn’t realize what he was doing, and then he just sat back and said – done!

It was painless, and easy. He told me for two weeks I had to damp the ring with disinfectant. [which I did, but I wasn’t meant to take it out for another two months, which I didn’t, as soon as the two weeks was over I took it out and disinfected the whole the ring and then put it on again… out of all my friends, mine is the only on that hadn’t gotten infected.] ❗

It was a weird sensation… every step I took felt like it moved the piercing. Sleeping with it was the hard bit. I had to get used to sleeping on my side. I hated it. That had to be the worst experience of the whole thing, finding a different comfortable sleeping position or pain. 🙁

The next day I went to Sydney for a week, no parents. He he made it easier to hide it from them for a little while.
Considering my parents didn’t know about my rebellious act, about a month went by and my parents wanted to go swimming. I normally don’t cover my upper body, so it would have been weird if I did this time. So I had to explain it to them that I did something that they advised against. Funny thing is that my parents were more upset at the fact that I didn’t tell them earlier.

Well till this day, it has not become infect though it did bleed once or twice. But only because my brothers forgot that I had a piercing. And it’s the sexiest artificial thing I have on my body. Next year…. A tattoo [parents are going to kill me] 😀 and two more ear piercings. I just like to live the way I want and look the way I want! 😉


  1. Hehehe Nicole!! Ur story sounds just like mine.
    Well i also got my belly pierced when i was 15 and i did not tell my parents, especially my mother who’d freak out !! it did not hurt that much, lol in reality i fainted cz i was so stressed out so i couldnt remember that much of the pain:P

    In like a week after the piercing, my cousin got me that wonderful ring, and i couldnt get out of my head the idea of trying it on. I used to stand in front of the mirror and stare at it for like hours and hours. Hehe i finally decided to change it after several days, maybe max 8 days. i actually did and it didnt go wrong, i never got infected or wtv. but the idea of keepin that secret from my parents was really annoying, i could never walk naked in the house or go with them to the beach or wtv !! i rly turned out to b paranoid in front of them i always had the thought in mind, of how my mum wld react over this.
    and u’re never going to guess how they did find out … i actually kept that secret for over a year and a half lol until the day i returned home half drunk (my sis told me the story lol) … i came in and called my mum and stared the never ending speach of how much i love body piercings and bla bla bla 😛 and then i revealed to her my secret… she rly got mad for the same reason ur parents did .. she started yelling at me the second day and said that i shld hv told her sooner. otherwise i am 18 now and everytime my mum sees the piercing she starts all over with the same story pff 😛
    anyway its our body i dont get parents … in the end we’re goin to suffer if it will go wrong … and btw i advice u to pierce ur hargus its rly rly rly amazing and special. i did it, it didnt hurt that much:D
    thx for sharing the story i lyk it 😉
