I had wanted my belly button pierced since i was 12 years old. Yes, I know that is super young. My mom agreed and took me to a piercing parlor and they said that they couldn’t pierce me even with parental consent until i was 13 years old at least. I left devastated but i kinda forgot about wanting the piercing until i was 18 years old. I went with my boyfriend to a shop where i met a super friendly lady who filled out my paperwork talked with me about the aftercare and then sat us in the waiting room. Shortly after sitting in the room she called us over to a room where we met the piercer who was super friendly. He sanitized me, marked the spot, put the clamps on and then laid me down my boyfriend grabbed my hand and i kinda laid there not knowing what to expect. It was very quick the pain was that equivalent to the ear piercings i had had when i was maybe 7 years old. My boyfriend later told me he was scared and surprised that i did not cry or react because the needle was really big lol. I would recommend this piercing. The soreness afterwards is more painful than the piercing itself and as long as you clean it very well you do not even really notice the soreness.

Once I turned sixteen I really wanted it done... I absolutely hate needles but getting the piercing was fine, didn’t hurt at all and didn’t hurt afterwards. I hopefully will get the bottom half of my navel done in the next few years. It has been healing very well and I’ve had no issues with it especially since I’ve ridden horses my whole life

from the age of 12 i wanted to get my bally pierced but didn’t want to tell my parents. It was 2002 when i got it done, and thought it looked great, it wasn’t long ago when my parents found out i had my belly button pierced. They were really disappointed with me and didn’t trust me. After that we had our fight and argued that i was to young and need to stop copping and being like my friends i started to become a different person my, parents were glad that i became a more mature adult and wanted me to go through university. from today i still have my memories and was glad that i changed.

From the age of 10 I wanted to get my belly pierced but thought I was too young. When I was 12 my mum said she would take me to get it but I wanted to lose weight first, after that I kept putting it off because I was scared of the pain. I’m almost 16 and I finally got it done a few weeks ago for a holiday to Queensland and I’m so happy with it!! It was over and I didnt realise she’d even put the needle through. It’s a great piercing you can’t not love it! If you want it just do it!! You won’t regret it :)

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!!

Does getting your belly pierced hurt?

Getting your belly button pierced doesn‘t hurt nearly as much as the anticipation of it does! It‘s like a pinch and it‘s rather quick ... before you know it your laughing both with releif and excitement that it‘s DONE! It‘s actually quite an exhilierating experience.

When I had my navel piercing done (about 12 years ago now) my piercer made a joke about calling an ambulance shortly after performing the piercing. My friend and I were just too busy laughing to even think about the pain!

The healing process can take quite a few weeks, but asside from a little tenderness for the first few days, assuming you keep your belly piercing clean and clear of infection, the new piercing doesn‘t cause too much discomfort at all. Follow your piercers guidelines for looking after your piercing and you‘ll be surprised just how quickly it heals and how painless the whole procedure is. It‘s definately best to wear loose fitting clothing during this healing time, anything that won‘t rub and distress your belly piercing is great.

If your about to get your belly button pierced, my advice, stop worrying about it and simply look forward to the event. MAKE SURE YOU USE A PROFESSIONAL PIERCER!! This is very important. There are risks associated with piercings, but these are very low if you use a trusted professional. Also, take care when selecting the jewellery you will use for your new navel piercing, make sure you select a surgical grade belly ring and listen to the advise offered by your piercer. Some designs cause less stress on a new piercing and are worthwhile using in the short term for the long term benefits of a successful piercing. Internally threaded belly rings are also good for new piercings to avoid bacterial build up so consider these if they are available.

The answer? NO! Getting your belly button pierced doesn‘t hurt nearly as much as people who havn‘t had it done anticipate!

Kathy Acker, in an interview, described her own experience with piercing: Ground yourself and do really deep breathing. And if you do it right, the kundalini will come. The energy will go right to the top of your brain and shoot out. And it did!

TummyToys® Rose Gold Pink Sapphire Sleeper - Solid 14k Rose Gold Belly Ring with Pink Sapphires

“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.“

“Good morning Helene, The gift went very well and was quiet a surprise for my friends birthday.

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.“

TummyToys® Classic Silver Sleeper Belly Ring - Solid Silver Snap Lock Belly Ring

“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!“
