I wanted a belly piercing when I was 12 (I’m 14 now) and so I asked my friends for their opinions and they all said to me, ’don’t because you’re too young and you might get bullied’ and so I agreed with them and then in late 2016 one of my friends got their belly pierced and I got jealous so I had to beg my mum for a belly piercing but she kept saying no. Christmas came and I begged my mum in public because she couldn’t reject me and she finally said yes only because I would have to pay for it and stop begging for things. I was hyperventilating because I was so excited to get it done and it took at least 5 mins to get it done, I do not regret it!
My want for a piercing began shortly after my first tattoo, nineteen years ago. To be honest, at the time I was not aware that very few men pierce their navels. No matter. After all these years I still remember the rush of the needle penetrating me, and the accompanying feeling of invincibility. I have always wanted more piercings since that then, but for various reasons (none of them fear), I haven’t followed through. I love my piercing, and I intend to never allow it to close. I enjoy wearing surgical steel spikes, but I usually favor balls in gold or - more often - basic black. More guys should do it!
My want for a belly piercing started last year when I was 12 and one of my friends got one. I told my mum about it and agreed that I could get it done for my 13 birthday but when my birthday came around I lost my want for one or you could say I wimped out. 2015 came and I told myself I’m getting it done regardless. The first school holiday came (March holidays I think) and every time I asked to get it done, we already had a trolley or something that was awkward so I waited for the next holiday but only to be told ’you can wait for your birthday.’ My birthday finally came around and I got it done. I barely hurt at all and after I had it done I forgot I had it because I could feel it. It’s been a week and I love it! 😜
I was pretty young and on a family vacation. I always wanted to get my belly button pierced. It was around my birthday and even though my Mom was not on board my Dad took me.
The guy had so many tattoos and piercings. He was nice but scary looking and we had to go to a tattoo shop to get this done.
I didn’t realize until after getting it done that the way he did it was not how it usually gets done with instruments and a clamp. I laid down and didn’t really watch but it did not hurt. He did it free-style, and by hand. No tools but a needle and the belly button ring. I had it in for 5 years. It did not get changed until my best friend cut it off with wire clippers and the top hit her right on the chin haha. Love it still, it’s been 7 years and I had a baby 2 years ago. I did not leave any rings in when I had a belly. But the holes never closed up.
A friend and I were shopping and she pointed at a store and said that’s where I got my belly button pierced! Apparently she’d taken it out one night and it closed over straight away. Within 20 minutes of us having this conversation, we’d booked appointments and had our belly buttons pierced. This was mid August 2014. Hers closed over a few months later when it fell out at the gym. Mine will NEVER close over!!
I got my navel piercing done when I was a senior in high school. A few friends of mine went to a tattoo and piercing place so they recommended me to the guy who pierced me. He was super nice and really professional and clean. The needle hurt the worst for me. Being only 95 lbs I’m not sure that helped my case but it healed great!
I was 18 and drinking at Country fest 2014 and made my way to the tattoo and piercing tent. I spent the rest of the night showing it off at the karaoke tent and yellow bar.
Lol. Well my first one I had done, a friend was the clamp and the other person pushed it threw. Looked great. This was about 5 years ago on the 4th of July. It went great! I went to go to the bathroom and all of a sudden I heard the ball hit the floor (ugh) and the piercing fell out....so I cleaned it off and tried to put it back in and no luck lol. So I waited until it healed and got it professionally done.
I got mine in December when I turned 18 (not that long ago) but I love it! If anyone is thinking about it I would definitely go do it. It’s not as bad as you think I didn’t even feel the needle go in!
My mom took me for my 15th birthday. I loved it but took me a while to get used to, every time I stood up too quickly at school, the belly ring would catch on the desks.
“A super special thanks for sending me the pink belly bar! It arrived yesterday and it is absolutely stunning! I have no words! That colour of pink and gold is my absolute favourite colour of gold ever! I wish all solid rose gold could be that pink & gorgeous! It is hands down the most stunning belly ring that I have ever seen. However, since I purchased my 1st (but definitely not my last) Tummy Toy, I love them so so much I don't want to and wont ever, wear any other style of belly bar! They are my hands down favorite and hands down the best belly piercings around anywhere! Thank you for your very wise words regarding my daughters piercing, I sincerely appreciated it very much. I gave her the romance bar because she loves it so much & before that I had given her the cupid bar & neither bar has affected her in any way at all which is brilliant! It also says so much for your integrity as a seller as you absolutely only sell high quality belly bars & rings! Thank you Helene! I very much look forward to purchasing from you again really soon! Take care Helene, thank you so much for everything, it has been a true pleasure to have been able to message with you like this. With kindest thanks & best regards, Nadia“
“My TummyToy sterling silver sleeper belly ring was the purchase I ever made online. I was working at McDonalds and I was 15 and I thought your products were so cool and different I decided to make the (then) very extreme decision to actually purchase something from the internet! Haha! That was nearly 8 years ago now and I just took it out earlier today to give it a polish and realised how long it had been. I still love my belly ring dearly and have not taken it out other than for a clean. I just wanted to say that I still think your products are so cool and the quality is outstanding. Thank you for giving me my first and favourite internet purchase ever.“
“I had been having a lot of trouble with infections since I had my belly pierced eight months ago. I thought this may be due to the titanium in the cheaper style rings so purchased this silver one in the hope it would help. I'm pleased to report it has worked, so I will now be looking at getting the silver rings with gem stones.“
“I just recently found your website & I love it!!! I bought a sterling silver belly ring (I have an allergy to nickel & had a hard time finding these type of rings). I received my belly ring today & LOVE it!! It is so pretty & easy to put in!!! I just bought a charm to go with it & I can't wait for it to come in.“
“Just letting you know the present arrived yesterday for my partner’s birthday that I ordered earlier this week. She was extremely impressed and overwhelmed with the surprise. She cannot wait till we see each other in January to thank me for it. Again, thank you for the wonderful service and product that you provided.“
“I love my new products, the stainless steel sleeper belly ring and the saltwater silver Quartz sleeper charm look beautiful together, natural and classy! They are both extremely comfortable to wear and unlike belly bars they do not catch on clothing, especially high waisted items! I would recommend this product to anybody, in particular those whose piercings are prone to irritation or soreness.“
“Good morning Helene, The gift went very well and was quiet a surprise for my friends birthday. It finally arrived considering the issue we had with Australia Post, they weren't always too helpful, I have addressed that issue with them already, just awaiting for a reply from them. The service and support that you provided was extremely appreciated and professional, I thank you very much for that. I have liked the products and service from your company, which is obvious by me placing another order for my wonderful partner for her birthday which she will receive by the weekend, fingers cross. I have also been trying to do this while overseas with work, so the time difference is difficult. Thank you for everything and keep up the awesome work and customer service.“
“I got my navel pierced for my birthday last year and, as I am sure many of you know, these things heal relatively slowly, with fits and starts of irritation. I was using the original piercing jewelry (stainless steel barbell) but, of course, it would get caught on something every now and then and there would be another bout of irritation, Plus, stainless just isn't the same as gold or silver for me. I found Tummy Toys online and found the sleeper belly ring - silver and meant for comfort - and figured that I had to try it. Well, I order it and some other jewelry. I live in the U.S. and I was given a deliver by date of 10/9. The jewelry arrived about September 5th, which was great. But the silver sleeper belly ring is really the star. It is comfortable and doesn't get caught on clothing. The metal does not irritate my piercing. I am so happy! If you have trouble with irritating metal or jewelry that gets caught on clothing, Tummy Toys is a must buy!“
