My big sister mila inspired me to get my belly button pierced
, She told me it didn’t hurt so I asked my parents they said they will have to think about cause im only 14 years old so the next week or so I was allowed.
So i was about to go to the shop to get it done at Earth And Moons. Thats were my sister got heres done so I decided to it only costed $60.00 so not bad and the girl that did it she was so nice she even waited for me to get ready and stuff.
So she got the clampers out and then she got the need she said breath in 1 breath and then let go when I tell you and she did it twice and it worked perfectly and it took a week to two weeks to heal but after all its really cute.
She gave me instuctions on how to keep it clean and stuffand where to ge tbelly button rings but every where I look they are too exspensive so I only got one belly ring and I try to keep it as clean as possible.It is very pretty now and thank you guys so much.

After I’d picked my beautiful barbell, the woman autoclaved it and told me to come into the piercing room as she put on these cool looking black gloves.
She made me lift up my shirt, and she cleaned my navel with an alcohol pad. She then marked the dots on my belly button….and then it was time…
I thought I was going to piss myself silly!! I lay on the table and concentrated on my breathing thinking “holy shit holy shit” the whole time while staring at the ceiling. She put the clamp on and I’d thought it was the needle (but it didn’t hurt) but boy was I wrong. She then said “Ok I am going to put the needle in now. Take a deep breath and when you let it out I am going to push it through.” When I let my breath out, she pushed the damn thing through and actually, it hurt a little bit more than what I’d expected because she pulled up my skin to stretch it out so she could put the barbell through.
When she had put my ring in, she let me get up and I looked at it in the mirror. It was SO CUTE!! I was really excited, and couldn’t wait to show my mom and little sister. They both really liked it. The lady then proceeded to tell about the cleaning process. She said I should clean it with Dial soap and soak it twice a day in salt water.
