I remember talking to my girlfriends about piercings, and I remember telling them how my family would hate it if I got any weird body piercings (my mother found the ears as the only non-weird place to pierce yourself). She then told me that I should be my own person, and do what I want, and that I wasn’t a little girl anymore. About a week later, at a party at one of my girlfriend’s house, one of my friends was showing off her knew belly ring. I must admit, I kind of wanted to be in her shoes when everyone around her were bragging about how cool and cute it looked. I decided that I wanted to get double that attention and the next day I called my best friend and told her that I desperately needed to go to Galaxy (the closest piercing place). She was more excited than I was (she has always been very supportive of my decisions). Once we got to Galaxy, they offered to help us with whatever we needed... My bestfriend opened her huge mouth and said she wanted to get her belly button pierced. I thought i was going to be the only cool one to get a piercing that day. But it was okay, because i decided to get my belly and my tongue pierced! After that I went home and I could barely even talk. My mother picked a perfect time to start long conversations with me (not). I was desperately trying not to talk, when she finally realized I was talking funny. She told me to open my mouth and to avoid a slap on the face I did as she told. She instantly told me to remove the piercing and to throw it away. She couldn’t stop yelling at me, and she was studying my body so carefully while she yelled at me. I guess it was the tight tank top I was wearing that day that helped her discover my other precious piercing. I went to bed more pissed off than I’ve ever been. It has only been a few months since then, but I finally made my mom realize that piercings aren’t as bad as she thinks. Just because you make holes in your body, doesn’t mean that it makes you a bad person. So now I have 15 Piercings including my lip, navel, and nose(don’t worry, most of my piercings are in my ears ).
I took my mum and my sister along the day I got my belly done. My sister came to laugh at me as she was convinced I'd cry, scream or faint. I sat down the the technician, picked out my bar, and laid down on the bench. The tech and I were having a mad chat about Christmas being 2 days away, when she infomed me I was pierced - I didnt believe her as I didnt feel a thing and whacked my stomach to make sure she was telling the truth. As I jumped off the bench to show my sister I nearly wet myself laughing - she had gone gray and clammy, on the verge of passing out herself just watching me get my tummy pierced! Haha thats karma for you!
â€œA 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, Nadiaâ€œ
â€œMy 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.â€œ
â€œI 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.â€œ
â€œI 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.â€œ
â€œJust letting you know the present arrived yesterday for my partnerâ€™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.â€œ
â€œGood 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.â€œ
â€œI 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!â€œ
