Scared, terrified, everything imaginable! 😯
I had wanted to pierce my belly button for as long as I could remember! The first time I saw one was in high school and I had wanted one since then. I was so scared to get one due to all the terrible stories my friends had told me about their experiences with getting it done.
â€œIt hurts, it bleeds like crazy, it can get ripped out, etc.â€ I finally sucked it up and got it done 8 days ago. I would do it again in a heart beat. 😉
Best thing I ever did for myself, I was so proud I finally just went and did it. I got to the shop, they prepped for it, and I went back in the room. I was shaking, both nervous and excited. They told me to lean back, so I did and closed my eyes. He started to count and he did it on 2 and not 3 so I didnâ€™t anticipate the actually minute he was going to put it through.
The needle didnâ€™t hurt at all! He then slid the bar in and tightened the balls on the ends. He gave me a mirror and I thought, â€œGorgeous!â€ I finaly had what I wanted for so long. When he was finished, he told what I could and couldnâ€™t do and for how long. He then gave me a bottle of H2Ocean and that has been awesome!
The past 8 days it has not gotten infected, hurt or bled. It is faintly sore when I sit for a long time just because it readjusts when I stand up. So I would surely go do it again! I love it and itâ€™s just perfect! I donâ€™t have any jewelry for it yet, but I want all the pink ones I can find for it!
I canâ€™t wait for it to finally heal and I can start switching it out with fun jewelry! I have fallen in love with the bright colored ones, glittery ones, and I have even seen the â€œBioplastâ€ ones that are bright and flexible. Iâ€™m not sure on how those are in the skin, but I havenâ€™t seen any bad reviews on them either.
I am anxious to start building my collection up and showing off my piercing at the beach.
My advice to anyone wanting to get this done:
Go and get it done! Donâ€™t wait years like I did, it does not hurt at all!
I thought my 3rd hole in my ears hurt lots worse. Go get it done and enjoy it! 😉
