For my 16th birthday my mom wanted to do something special
since I wasn’t able to get my liscence so she asked if I wanted to get my belly button pierced and of course I said yes, I was so excited!
My mom did the research and we decided to go to eau claire which was an hour away. We took my mom, my boyfriend and my moms best friend. I wasn’t nervous on the way there but as soon as we got there I was really scared. I walked in there and it was really nice inside.
the guy was kind of scary because all his tattoos and he had bumpy implants in his arm, but he was super nice. I got to pick out the jewelry and the guy led me and one person into the back room. I picked my boyfriend.
He showed me everything was starile and had me stand up so he could put the dot on my tummy. it looked good so i layed down on the table. He didn’t use a clamp. i thought he was just poking me with the needle to position it but it turns out he was piercing it! I was so surprised.
It was not as bad as I thought.
He told me to wash it twice a day with nonscented soap. it actually took a while to heal, almost 6th months, but i changed it almost right away which wasn’t a good idea. I love it so much. I love changing it and stuff. my favorite belly button ring was only $6. I plan on getting more piercings. I’m actually getting my tragus done in less than a week, and I’m really nervous about how bad that will hurt.
After my belly button piercing everyone wanted to take pictures and stuff. We went out to eat at olive garden and it didn’t hurt to sleep on at all. Just a little sore, especially when it caught on my clothes :/ I like telling people the story, because I want them to have a good piercing experiance too. Hope this helps (: x.

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 didnâ€™t even feel that way, she just didnâ€™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 didnâ€™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 wasnâ€™t meant to take it out for another two months, which I didnâ€™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 didnâ€™t know about my rebellious act, about a month went by and my parents wanted to go swimming. I normally donâ€™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 didnâ€™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 itâ€™s the sexiest artificial thing I have on my body. Next yearâ€¦. 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! 😉
