On December 30th 2010, I went to go get my bellybutton pierced. I lied to my parents and told them I was going to the mall. In November 2010 I turned 13. I always wanted a belly button ring since I was very small. My parents said NO WAY.
SO I asked my older cousin who was 19 who had hers to take me. As I sat down in the chair I was shaking. I started to use my phone and went on Facebook. He started to clamp and he said “take a deep breath…. and let it out.” I was still on Facebook, he PUSHED the needle through and I felt a BIG HUGE sting. “DJ Got Us Fallin’ In Love Again” was playing.
He left it in for 2 minutes and then went and got a ring. The WORST part was when he changed the needle to the bar/ring. The whole thing took about 5 min. Unfortunetly I was not allowed to pick my starter bar/ring. I got an original titanium bar. I went home and everything was fine. After 2 or 3 weeks, it started to hurt and pus started to come out. I never cleaned it with the Sea-Salt solution. So it got in a infection. Its been 3 months since I got it.
I absolutly love it and the infection got cleared after one week of constinly cleaning it. Yesterday March 4th 2011 I finally changed to ring/bar. I was so scared and I thought it was going to close in .5 second(s). I did it so fast that I didn’t even feel it. After I got mine, all my friends started to get theirs too. I am so happy with it & I would not trade it for anything.
