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.

Thanks for reading 😀

It finally worked

By Renee from Kenesaw, U.S.A.

Hey!!! the names Renee’. Ive had my belly button pierced three times. The first time it was rejected. The second time it was snagged.. And this time, so far it looks good.

This is the longest its ever lasted. its been a week and its healing already. i snagged it lastnight but, but im keeping it clean so it should heal correctly. The more i got it repierced the more it hurted. Before i got it pierced the piercer asked me did i want the bottom done. I thought it would look wierd so i said no.

After the second one migrated out, there was this ugly dark brown scar left. I was thinking about getting the bottom pierced now, so i was surfing the internet looking for pics with people who have their bottom belly button pierced. But i thought id give the top one more chance, and like i said earlier so far so good. I mean the more you take care of it the better it will heal. Healing any piercing can be as easy or hard as you make it. If you stick to proper aftercare and cleaning, you should have minimalproblems with just about any piercing.

The best method for healing piercings is to soak them 3-4 times daily in a Sea Salt water solution (Since you body contains salt water, sea salt water soaks will not be harsh to your body like man made chemical cleansers can be.)

Upon leaving our studio, you should stop by your local grocer and/or supermarket and purchase a package of sea salt (otherwise referred to as no-iodized salt or kosher salt) and a gallon of distilled water
