I wanted to have my belly button pierced since i was 16 years old
, but i couldn’t because i didn´t had money or permission from my parents so i waited until i had the majority of age.
When i turned 20 i started searching for a good tattoo & piercing studio, i found one in the downtown so i decided to go an see if i was a good place and when i entered the place, everything was clean and the lady who attended me was so nice, so i decided that when i had the money i would go.
When i went to have my piercing on july 23th 2012 i was so nervous and scared that i almost chickened out,but i swallowed my fear and went, the guy who made my piercing had a good hand because i just felt a small pinch, and the worst part was when he put in the piece i choose.
The first week was a pain because i couldn’t flip off or sleep because of the pain and i had been instructed on how to take care of my piercing and i did it. I changed my piece 1 and a half months later and now i have small collection of pieces to wear! 😉

My brother has always wanted his eyebrow pierced. I wanted one a little too but not as bad. So one night me my girlfriend and my brother went to the tattoo parlor (now let me remind you we all wern’t in the right state of mind, good thing the tattoo parlor was right down the street so we didn’t have to drive) 😉
So we go in my brother says he wants his eyebrow done so he signs papers and picks out a blue barbell, goes back behind the counter to get it done. Comes back out yea its looks ok so my girlfriend wanted her belly button done so she does the same signs some papers picks out her ring, she got a plain purple barbell i go back with her she squeezes the crap out of me but it ended up going well.
OK, so now its my turn i thought i was getting my eyebrow done. Nope! I thought wrong i go back and i get something pierced. Somehow i end up walking out with my bellybutton pierced too!!!!!
Let me tell you this is NOT what i wanted at all! 😡
So by now i figure you are wondering how the crap i ended up with my bellybutton done and not my eyebrow…well ok my stupid brother told me that he would give me all my rent money if i did my bellybutton instead of my eyebrow.
Since it’s hidden and that i’m so laid back that i don’t care i go through with it. But the bet was that i had to keep it in for a year and wear whatever belly ring he picked out for me! Ugh! 😯
Why did i ever agree to do this? So i walk out with a PINK ring and now he’s making me wear a pink one with dangling hearts!! Bad idea don’t ever go up on bets with your older brothers!

First off, I am a boy, my name’s Grant, and I have wanted a belly button piercing ever since the summer of 2008.
But, ever since two months ago, I’ve really started seriously wanting one. You’d think my parents would be cool with it because they are like creative laid-back artists; but they’re not. So, my mom said that if I improved my posture (I’m a sloucher) she would consider taking me to get one. But, after I improved my posture for a month and a half she still didn’t let me get one.
So, I decided I would ask an acquaintance of mine who has many piercings and wants to be a piercer when she grows up to do it for me. So I called her so she could prepare and get all the materials. (Bactine, gloves, jewelry, needle, etc.) A few days later, before my lunch period which is during her gym class, I went outside of my school during school (at the risk of getting in trouble by the security guard) and she did the piercing for me.
The piercing wasn’t bad at all. At first she tried to use a clamp but my stomach is too flat so she just put some cleanser on my stomach, marked it where she was going to put it through, then put the needle through. She then had to put the jewelry in, which went well, but the ball for the jewelry was hard to put on and took ages to put on.
Then was the best part, after paying her a mere 20$ I went to go show off my piercing at lunch. I was very proud that I had gotten it. Now I clean it twice a day with dove soap and I take the best care of it possible to have a clean and healthy piercing. Good luck to everyone keeping yours clean or getting one. =)
