Hi, my name’s Ashley
, and i got my belly button pierced almost one month ago . It was pierced by somebody that I’m close to who owns their own shop and has been in the business for a long time.
It cost 40 dollars and an extra 10 for the healing solution. It actually didn’t hurt as much as i thought it would, all you have to do is relax.
But, after wards i got dizzy and had to lay down. My piercer told me to clean it twice a day in the shower with antibacterial soap and turn the ring around. If you get it pierced, get the ring that is kind of like a hoop earring, because if you get the banana bar, it wont get clean on the inside, but with the ring, you can turn it all the way around.
She also said to spray it with the healing solution no more than twice a day. I have been doing this and it has been coming along normal. It is red, and it does get a little crusty, but it doesn’t hurt at all. If your belly button shows signs of infection ( bleeding more than normal, pussing, irritation) thensoak it in salt water for about 10 minutes. After about a month, you should go back and have your piercer check on how it is doing.
Thanks, and i hope i helped and i hope to get a tongue ring very very soon and i will be done with piercings. 🙂

Wow, i couldn’t believe it. My mother finally agreed to let me get my belly button pierced! I wanted it done for about a year and I was almost 14 when I finally got it pierced. [young, I know] but I was so determined and NOTHiNG could stop me now!It was on a Saturday afternoon, and at the time my cousin and my aunt were living with me.
My cousin is three years older than me, and she already had 8 piercings. She knew that I wanted to get my belly button pierced [which would be my first piercing besides my ears] and she decided that since she always wanted to get her eyebrow done, she would do it the same day i got my bellybutton done.
We begged my aunt to let her get her eyebrow pierced, and she FiNALLY gave in and then we had to decide on a tattoo/piercing place that was clean, and trustworthy. My cousin wanted to go to the Beauty Mark Tattoo in Waterbury, Connecticut because that’s where she got many of her other piercings, so that’s where we went! All I could remember was on the car ride thre, my hands were really sweaty and I was shaking and I couldn’t stop talking.
I couldn’t get the image out of my mind of a huge needle being shoved through the skin on top of my bellybutton, and that scared me. Alot. Oh, one thing I want to tell you: if you want to get your bellybutton pierced, but are afraid of how much it will hurt, TRUST ME it doesn’t hurt AT ALL and if you are like me and keep trying to pinch your bellybutton to see if it hurts that much, don’t do that because pinching yourself does hurt, but actually getting it pierced doesn’t hurt at all!!
Well it’s been almost a year now since that day and im still in love with it! I love buying new barbells to put in it and its so much fun to show off! I’m working on convincing my mom to let me get my tongue pierced now, I hope she’ll say yes! 🙂
