How I got my Belly Button Pierced

By Amelia from Haymarket, VA

I was 13 when I got my navel pierced. It took a long time for me to convince my parents but it finally worked! I went to Tan-Tastic in Manassas. The Piercers name is Sharon. She was so nice. She made me take a test to get it pierced. I PASSED!! I signed the papers and my mom paid up front 70$ plus 10$ tip.

I and my parents made a deal that i had to stay on honor roll for me to get my belly pierced so i did just that! Sharon had me pick out a pretty ring. I picked the sparkly pink one. She took me back to the room. I began shaking. She marked a blue dot on my belly then had me lay down. She cleaned me off and put the clamps on.

I was so so nervous and my mind was racing back and forth. She said breathe in and out and then it was done!!!! I had a gorgeous ring in my belly. It hurt so extremely bad. But in the end it was very much worth it. I went home with a lot of pain. I was nauseous. I cleaned it that day, that night, the next morning, that afternoon, that night and so on for three months. Ihad mini infections on and off for a while.

It would puss now and then and that was disgusting but I knew it was healing. My sister gave me her old belly rings since she didn’t use hers anymore. She gave me one with stars, one with grapes on it, one with hearts, one that said love, one that said awesome, and she even bought me a pack of four! . Two weeks after my piercing, the worst happened. It fell out! So in a panic I cleaned a new one and put it in while I looked for the other one. I found it, but guess where, in my bath tub where I had taken a bath hour before. I was so surprised that it stayed open.

But at the same time I was very grateful that it didn’t close up. After 4 months I decided to change it, now it’s perfectly healed and I love it!! That’s my story on how I got my belly pierced. Now I have gotten the industrial bar and now I’m getting my nose in a week!

It was tottally worth it!

By Emzy, from England.

So I was sitting at home one day looking on Google and deciding what piercing I want. I’ve already got my ears pierced, so this would be the 2nd time getting a piercing. I went to town with my friend one day and we saw a piercing place, and asked how old we had to be to get a belly button piercing. They said 16 to come alone, or any age and come with a parent. So I went home and asked my Mom if I could get a belly piercing, but of course, she said no. I said “Why?” she said “Because what if it gets infected or anything like that? You’re only 13!” I said “It could be part of my Christmas pressent, please?” So in the end, she said yes.

A couple of weeks later, my friend who I went to town with wanted it done too. We both went together with my Mom. When we got to the piercing place, my Mom had to fill out a few forms for us both. We pretended we were sisters. On the door, there was a sign.. it said, “No weenies aloud!” …I got quite scared.

When we both went into the room, the piercer calledKate said “Who’s going first?” Me and my friend had already decided that I was going to go first. There were 3 choices of belly bars, but they were all the same. A pink one, a blue one and a silver one. My friend Hayley wanted the blue one, so I got the pink one.

She marked with a pen where she was going to stick the needle through and told me to look at it in the mirror, so I did. She told me to lay down on the chair, and I was looking at the ceiling. My Mom doesnt like body piercings so she was just waiting outside. Hayley was stood over me watching, asking the piercer questions like ‘DOES IT HURT? HOW DOES IT WORK? WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO BE DONE?’ the piercer couldnt pierce my belly button untill Hayley stops speaking, or the piercer would get distracted. Hayley shuts up, and the piecer puts the clamp on my belly button. I have quite a high pain tolerance… she puts the needle through, and I screamed. It felt like I got shot. Yes it hurt very much. So when I stood up, I looked in the mirror. I l!
oved it.
But then seconds later, I started to feel dizzy and it felt like I was going to faint.

It was Hayleys turn. She marked it with a pen and told Hayley to lie down. Hayley gets the giggles alot, and when she starts giggling, she cannot stop. She started to giggle, and laugh, and cry with laughter. About 10 minutes of laughing, she stopped. The piercer was very patient, which was good. The piercer put the clamp on Hayley, and Hayley started to laugh again. The piercer took the clamp off, and said “Please be quiet, because I’m losing my patience”, that made Hayley shut up. She pierced it, and it was all done.

The piercer gave both of us instructions for looking after our new piercing. About a month later, mine was fine and looked very pretty. Hayleys looked very red and hers was itching alot.

It was tottally worth it! Picture above, no she did not pierce my belly button slanted. The belly bar is just slanted there, and the camera angle is slanted also.
