Belly Button Piercing Story

I’ve always wanted a belly ring ever since I was twelve. I wanted one beacause alot of celebrities wear them!

At first my parents wouldn’t let me. They said I was too young! Then when I turned sixteen I finally got it pierced.

I got it pierced at a local tatto parlor. The guy’s name was Mack. He did it very quickly. I felt proud that I got it pierced!

After a couple of weeks I started putting on different belly rings.

Almost at it’s worse..

Belly Piercing Story

By Britany, Tutwiler, Ms

I had been stretching all year about getting my belly pierced and December 20th 2007 the day. I went to the Southland mall to get my belly button pierced and when I walked to the back the lady tried to use a old needle with blood on it…

I ran out no one new what was wrong. So I went to the tattoo shop and he measured it and then began to clean it. He marked the piercing spot to and told me to check to see if it was even, and where i desired. I layed down and he began. I took a deep breath as instructed and it happened when I released.

I chose a cute pink one! 😉

Belly Button Piercing Story

By Erika, Brooklyn, NY

I wanted to get my belly pierced for the longest since last yr when I was 16. I was never into the whole piercing bellies thing – I was more into the piercing tongues thing. When I was about to turn 16 I wanted to get a piercing!

I decided to get my cartilage pierced 2 days after my 16th b-day(12.28.07) then later on the next yr(08) I decided I want another piercing but I didn’t know what. So it was either tongue or belly. I wanted a tongue ring since I was 10 (seriously) so I told myself when I get older I would get one but I decided not 2 get one yet and wait til im about 20.

Cuz it is very hard to hide a tongue ring especially when ppl keep lookin in ur mouth (especially from ur parents). But something about belly piercing caught my eye when I was 16. They seem so cute and pretty and yet so discreet. So I decided to get my belly pierced since its more discreet and really pretty (so my parents wouldn’t find it, plus they would kill me more if I got my tongue pierced) 🙂

So I told myself that I would do it when my b-day comes which is 12.26 so I had to wait all year then the day comes and I couldn’t do it cuz of lack of money and lack of confidence.

I told myself if I would get my belly pierced I would have a tone flat stomach. It was at first over the summer but I tend to eat a lot in the winter so my stomach was lookin soft. So I didn’t do it & I decided to do it in February as a late b-day gift. But I was afraid of going because I thought they were going to ask me for ID(since im only 17).

But I asked some friends around school and I found 2 shops that barely asked for ID especially for belly piercing(I guess it’s because it’s such a common piercing now). So I decided to do it on Friday (2/6/09) after school; I called it Ghetto Gurl Day(since my close friends called me Ghetto for having my cartilage pierced 2x but I don’t even know what it means to be ghetto!).

Me and my friend Jeannine went on Flatbush to some tattoo shop(it was pretty clean). While we were walkin I started to have 2nd thoughts but we arrived to the place and there was no turning back. We went inside and I asked the lady how much was it and she said $25(good price!) then she took the money from me and called the piercer(I was so happy, and surprised she didn’t ask for ID).

He came and told me to sit. Jeannine was many steps back because she didn’t want to see. While I was on the chair I asked him if it was going to hurt and he said No and I asked him if it was gonna be quick and he sed Yes and he was RIGHT!

It was quick & easy. All I felt was a lot of pressure. After that he just told me wash it with hand soap. I left and Jeannine couldn’t look at me. She said she thought I was going to chicken out but I didn’t! Before I had gotten my belly pierced I did a lot of research on the risk, procedure, aftercare so I wouldn’t be clueless.

I even watched Youtube videos on it!(if u go on youtube watch sabina belly piercing its good) I practically know how to do it myself!(I was gonna do it myself but I was too afraid to pierce myself, my body wouldn’t let me do it). I became obsess with belly rings, I would stare @ ppl with belly rings and I would envy them, that’s how bad it got.

So if u r thinking about getting ur belly pierced make sure u do the research and go with someone. I finally gotten it pierced (professionally of course). So now I’m a 17 year old and I have my belly pierced and I can’t wait till it heals so I could change the ring(hopefully it heals by the summer so I could show it off at the beach).

Hopefully my parents don’t find out anytime soon especially my conservative sister Sherly!

Awesome Belly Piercing

Belly Piercing Story

Well i have wanted my belly button pierced since i have been 13 but of course my parents wouldnt agree to take me…

But sure enought two days after i turned 18 i went to get it done!

My parents had gone out of town to see a football game so it was perfect timing. I was quit nervous that day but it all worked out.

On that rainy saturday my boyfriend had planned on taking me out for a birthday dinner along with the piercing. I got more and more nervous as i got closer the the tattoo shop. Finally we got there and I told the lady what I wanted and she had me fill out some papers and pick out which ring i wanted.

Next thing knew i was sittin in the chair watching this guy get ready to pierce me. He put the clamp on and i looked away as he stuck the needle through(Which i didnt feel at all!).

About a half minute later he said your done! It was so fast i didnt feel a thing. I was so happy as i ran out to show my boyfriend who was waiting in the front room. As we left i was so excited i almost slipped on the icy deck! 🙂

Its been a month since i got it done and its healing great and of course i told my parents and they didnt mind! All in all it was worth the time and money i love it so much!

Belly Button Piercing Story

Well like every teenage girl, the first time you see any piercing the first thing we do is run to my parents and ask “Can I get one?” and we all hear the same thing “NO! Wait till your 18!”.

Well that was what i did graduated high school and went off to college like a good girl knowing in the back of my head that once i was out on my own i could finally get the things i wanted.

So i started off with a couple tattoos (3 to be correct ) but i still had the desire to pierce something lol! It was either a navel piercing or a tongue ring. I didnt decide that until i made it to the tattoo/piercing shop.

When i got there when i was read the prices i knew then that the belly was the way i was gonna go this time. I know cheap but im a college student money dont grow on trees! The only problem i had was i had to wear a captive ring until it heals cause they claim it helps it heal better!

I payed the $50, signed the needed papers, and my sister-in-law and i waited in the lobby til it was my turn. Soon enough he walked in and we all walked to the back of the store to a room playing rock music and a dentist chair in it. He marked my stomach with the Purple Pen and after telling him i liked the location, he told be to lie on my back in the chair. He got the clamp and told me to breath in then out deeply. When i took the breath out he stuck the needle through. let me tell you it didnt hurt but felt like a pinch then it was over.

It been only two weeks and i have big plans for my little whole. Ive been ring shopping already. My plans next was getting a nose ring but the place where i work doesnt allow them. HOW RUDE RIGHT?! I guess i’ll just get my bottom navel done or my hips.

When i change this captive ring, imma post the pics cause i hate this thing!


My Lovely Belly Piercing

Belly Button Piercing Story

I’ve had my belly button pierced twice…

The first time i got it was on my 16th bday but before i got it i had to beg my dad a million times just to get him to say yes and he basically just gave it to me as my bday gift, so afta bday shoppin i went straight to the piercing salon and got it over & done with and it didnt hurt at all!!

But after it was done i noticed that it was crooked and he had only pierced a thin amount of skin but it was barely noticeable, but it bothered me alot!!

But my firends told me that you couldn’t even tell so i left it alone for 2 years and it wasnt hard to take care of either, but mine took a year to heal… but after a lot of thinkin i decided to take it out and get it re-pierced kuz if i have it pierced i might as well be happy with it right??

So thats what i did i took it out and waited 4 months to get it re-done & lemme tell you the 2nd time around it hurt more kuz of the scar tissue but its nothing unbareable… and now im happy with it!! 🙂

But heres a picture of my first belly piercing!!
