BOOM. pierced and proud!

By Jessica from Bury St. Edmunds

Ever since i’de seen my sister get her belly button piercing when she was 13, and i was 6, i was hooked. I begged my mum 24 hours of the day pleading with her, but obviously because i was very young it wasnt going to happen.

One year when i was 12, me and my mum were on a girly weekend holiday in gt yarmouth and we were wandering the town when i saw a belly button bar shop, it was so clean and fresh, and they pierced bellybuttons only. i looked at mum and she just signed and went in, she spoke to the lady’s who were absolutly lovely in there and looked at the jewellery.

She then signed the papers, cost £20 and i have a clear gemmed barbell in.
She clamped me, and pierced. It did hurt the most out of all my piercings ( a few in each lobe, tragus, rook, helix, conch and nose) but it still didnt hurt even though i have a high pain threshold.

Thankyou for reading 😀

12 years young.

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.
