I pierced mine and my friends ear cartilage, all i did was got a safety pin (a big one) and took a lighter to it until it got too hot to hold, put the earing and back in some ear care antibacterial stuff, numbed her ear with ice and shoved the safety pin through, waited 15 minutes then took the pin out and put in the earing, all three of ours turned out fine.  Hope this helps some.

you don't want to pierce anything but your ears and nose by yourself. Don't try to pierce your belly button, nipples, or tongue. It is harmful, and you can have some very bad scars. I hoped I helped a bit. But if you want to try to pierce your belly button yourself, have a trustworthy friend who knows what they are doing.

dont pierce your bellybutton with a safety pin. you need a 14g piercing needle. b/c most barbells or banana bells for your bellybutton are 14g and wont fit in the hole if you use a safety pin. you'll just end up with a nice old scar and some scar tissue

hey all, first of all my friend pierces people's ear every day at lunch. she just gets a safety pin and sticks it through. all 11 people have no regrets and love their piercings! i also pierced my belly button by myself which i regret. it took a long time to get the safety pin in. and it was like black and blue scab...it took a month to FULLY heal, and even now it looks a little different. i took it out because i was scared i would get a disease. also, i had to use just a regular earring, which sucked. and the first night i slept with it, i woke up and the earring had adhered to my skin! i had to yank it out, it started bleeding and hurt like crAzy! so to anyone looking to pierce their belly button by themselves...beware of the consequences!
         bling bling all!
im all that and a bag of cheetos! lol, luv you jubilee, my bestest best friend in the whole world! and audy audy, also my besest friend!

You should never pierce yourself unless you know exactly what you are doing, that means reading every bit of material on the subject, and then some, buying the proper equipment, STERILE equipment, not just some safety pin. The risks are too many to list here, but serious infect and keloid scaring are to name but a few problems

hey guys! i peirced my own cartilage... and it hurt... but not that bad...  I would NEVER peirce my belly button.  I peirced my ear with a safety pin.  but you HAVE to sterilize it with rubbing alchahol.  sterilize you ear as well as whatever your peircing it with.  I am waiting on a reply from my parents because i JUST did it today.  1 more tip, for example if you peirce it with a safety pin,  it sounds gross, but you have to leave it in a little while, like ten minutes. before you put the earing in.

Alrighty, first of all, you should NEVER use a safety pin, at the MINIMUM you can get an infection because safety pins are made of very low quality metal. how about buying a piercing needle online? they are fairly cheap and much more worth it. Also,kido NEVER pierce your nipple by yourself. Have it done professionally. PLEASE. for your own sake.

Okay, children. I do not advise piercing yourself. You could end up with lots of infections and scars from it. Most of you say you can't wait until you're 18, but what's the big deal? Everyone and their brother has piercings so if you want to be unique, I wouldn't advise piercings. It's a long time fad. I have about 6 piercings and I had to wait until I was 18 to get them and by that time I was sure that I wanted them. For your safety, don't do it yourself. Just wait and go to a professional. They know what they're doing and you don't. And if you parents are telling you no now, they must have good reason. If you want a piercing, go buy fake hoops for cartilage and clip on's for lobes. They look exactly the same. And I also don't advise piercings with guns, but thats just my opinion.

Recently, I just pierced my ear three times on each side. All you have to do is sanitize a saftey pin with Hydrogen Peroxide, and hold your ear on the side. Push the saftey pin in, twisting it as you go. It might sting a tiny bit at first, kind of buzz a little. Keep pushing the saftey pin into your ear, and it might put a little pressure on your ear right before you break the skin on the back of your ear. leave the saftey pin in for a few moments, and then get an earring, prefferably a stud earring, and then put it in.

Safety pins are a bad idea mostly because they are nickle-plated cheap-o metal which many people have allergic reactions to.  Please don't push a needle through your ear and let it 'pop' out the other side.  Push the needle into something, an ice-cube, a clean cork, anything else that you can clean by steaming in the microwave for a minute.  Don't share any any equipment with anyone, ever not even your cork.  Nobody wants Hepatitis.

Be very careful about cartilage piercings because they can tend to abscess, and that kind of infection needs to be cut open and drained.  Yum.

If you like your nipples, nose, etc, have a professional pierce them.  It would suck to have your nipples screwed up.

So I keep seeing all this stuff about people piercing themselves with safety pins...I thought I should say something.  I'm a piercer, and also an EMT, so take a second to read this:  Safety pins are NOT made for piercing.  They are not very sharp, they are not made to be sterile, and they are not guaged.  There are literally thousands of piercing and tattoo supply companies out there.  just look them up on Google or something.  Order some needles, pick up a book on anatomy, and go nuts.  I'm not saying you should just get a needle and stick it thru yourself...but it sounds like you're going to do it anyway.  Piercing needles are guaged, that means they have specific sizes, to go along with the jewelry you are putting in there.  They are also made to be sterilized, and you can actually order pre sterilized needles.  They only run about 45cents apiece too.  Also, they are hollow, and very sharp.  A piercing needle needs to be hollow so that it can displace the matter it is being pushed through.  In this case, that means skin, and a whole buncha other stuff.  A safety pin will simply push this all to the side, or into your body...anyway, that's my two cents, and I won't ramble any longer, because I somehow doubt any of you even read this far....

To clean it use salt water.use Epsom salt.trust me i know all of this because my best friends mom is a piercer.in fact I'm cleaning my ear right now w/ q-tips and salt water.get the water as hot as you can. if you can't get the salt to dissolve in the water stick it in the microwave until it does.and i beg of you PLEASE look things up before you Pierce them.just to see how long it takes them to heal at least.

Ive had my ears pierced for 5 years but I cant work up the courage to pierce my ear again by myself. I mean i went to a professional and got my cartilage pierced and it got infected. Although my friend pierced her own and it turned out fine shes gonna pierce mine for me. I've had my nose pierced for 1 week though and I did that by myself.I had a little help from a frind but only to tell me if it was going in right b-cuz she pierced her nose too and it turned out fine for both of us. I dont regret it but im glad my mom still hasn't found out. I hide it well. I dont where it at home either and it isnt closing up one bit. So im proud of my lovely job and ive pierced my belly button myself too i just took it out b-cuz the needle wasnt the right size. (I dont advise any one to pierce their own lip, tongue, nipples, or eyebrow.)

for the girl who wants to know how to how to pierce her own nose:
ok. i pierced my nose a few months. turned out great and no infections!
first.
get a needle. boil it in water then let it soak in peroxide. clean your nose. mark the spot where you want it pierced.(i didn't use anything to numb my nose) i gently stuck the needle through and make sure to do it at a little angle DON'T pierce straight across. then once you get through the last layer twist the needle around to make sure the hole is big enough. gently remove the needle and pop your stud in. after that you're good to go EXCEPT in some cases peoples studs fall out in the middle of the night...it didnt happen to me so try to sleep on the side your nose isn't pierced.
aftercare: don't put makeup by the area you pierced your nose. use sea salt or dial soap to clean the piercing. you DON'T take the stud out to clean the piercing. clean the piercing 3 times a day. leave the stud in for about 2 weeks then you can change it to something different. is should heel in 1-3 months.
remember: piercing yourself isn't always the greatest idea. i was lucky and had no infections. make sure to steralize if you're planning on piercing yourself.

i am 12 and have had my ears pierced three times on each side i use alcohol i have done 6 of my friends ears and one nose none were infected and on girl let hers close because of parents. if you want to hide your ears just don't act like you have them pierced its as simple as that if they look at your ears a lot (which i hope they don't cause that is messed up) wear you hair down and you people with short hair with parents that look at your ears sorry no advice for you

Hey, I've already got my ears pierced, but I want to do a little piercing right above it.  
1) Can I use a needle sterilized in a pot of poiling water or over a candle?  
2) Should I wait until it cools or put it right in?
3) How long should I hold the needle in my ear?
4) Will ice numb it enough for me not to scream?  How long should I hold it on?

First of all don't use candles the needle will get carbon on it and you dnt want tht in ur ears.
Secondly when you get your new piercing dont touch it till its totaly healed. No rotating it you stupid girl further up the page!!!
I've gt m8s who were piercers and they shown me a few things. Never use safety pins and especially dont leave them in, i did it when i ws younger and it was fine at first and then puss came out all the time cos of reaction with metal. Hydrogen peroxide sucks!!! it dries out the skin too much (it made my piercing between my fingers reject). After lots of observation i have done my right nipple. I have not gone thorugh the niple but underneath. Its got 3 bars in it (1.2mm) it looks like : = with another bar perpendicular to those two. looks neat!!! Just be carefull and use salt water solution or dilluted tea tree oil to disinfect your piercings. Nothing else!!!!!!!!! (no not even alcohol, it makes blood vessels come closer to surface and increases risk of rejection and i already said bout hydrogen peroxide). have fun

. . . wow.  I remember teenage rebellion.  I'd forgotten how intense it was.

Anyway.  To all of you who want to pierce yourselves:  I know you're intent on being individuals, standing out, not letting the man keep you down, and so on, but that's no excuse to abandon your common sense.  So I present these refreshers on common sense:  1. There is a reason that professional piercers are well-paid.  That reason is that it's a hard job to do right, and it takes a lot of training which you do not have.  2. Just because someone you know (or someone you heard about) pierced themselves and it worked out fine, that does not mean it will work out fine for you.  3. Infections and nasty scars are not fun.  4.  Attempting and failing at piercing yourself will make other people call you an idiot.  

And if I've failed to dissuade you, at least educate yourself.  Here are a couple of the large number of well-informed websites available.  (As a final piece of advice, please consider making a habit of looking for authoritative, well-informed websites, rather than asking a bunch of random strangers who mostly don't know what they're talking about.)  http://www.infinitebody.com/aftercare/achelp.html   http://www.soyouwanna.com/site/syws/piercing/piercing.html

Good luck, best wishes, and if you end up with bloody, puss-oozing infections it's your own damn fault,

Question!!!

I want to pierce my nose!

1) How should I do it by myself?

My friend did my ears with a steralized earing and It didn't really hurt.  

2) So, is the nose just like the cartilage in your ears?

3) Will it be okay to pierce by myself as long as everything is steralized?

4) Does the piercing have to be slanted at an angle?

5)Will a regular (ear lobe) earing work?... what is the smallest gage for nose rings?

Yeah, i pierced the top cartalage on my ear just like my friend did. I took a fake earing (not the magnetic kind) and left it in for 2-3 days, it hurt a little but not much, and it made a hole, i starilized the earing with rubbing alcahol and put it in. It turned out great and i love it!

Hey, read alot 'bout what you are going to pierce. I wouldn't recommend doing the cartiledge piercings yourself because there is hardly any blood that flows through them. And they can start to rot away if they get infected...The septum eh, that is kind of a not so good place to pierce yourself either because if it gets infected you can get brain damage, and yes I said "brain damage"!...Facial piercings besides the lip can cause serious problems. So, just make sure you acknowledge what you are doing and read alot about what you are going to do!! The more you know the better chance of doing it correct!! AND DO NOT USE SAFETY PINS!! They are cheap metal and they do not go through, meaning it takes a while...They stick inside the skin when you try and pierce!! just use a STERILE sewing needle or a actual STERILE piercing needle!!

I pierced my ears myself yesterday. It is soo easy. I used a pin, all i did was sterilize the pin, make the marks on your ears [make sure they are even] then shove the pin through. You can't even feel the pin going through. The only time it hurts is getting the pin through the very last layer of skin. I left the pin in for about 2 minutes, then pulled it out and put an earing in right away. It may be a little harder to get the earring in the hole, unless the needle is the same size as your earring. My friend has done her second hole on both ears and her third hole on one ear, and they have come out fine. Me and my friend have also tried piercing our belly buttons atleast 5 times. I've got the pin through my belly button but then I couldn't get the ring through. So I would suggest getting your belly button professionally done, because now we both have very noticeable scars. I did my second holes on my ears, I wouldn't recommend doing your cartilage yourself!

Yes it was a little painful and it was semi-infected but now i want to Pierce another hole in my lobe and id rather not use the same procedure as i did before. and i definitely will NOT use a safety pin so if anyone has any advice at all please help me : - ) thank you

Im not scared of piercing my self but my mom said that she would take me to get my belly button done because i was gonna do it myself...keep threating that you will do it yourself and they give in....once i told the guy who pierced my belly button that i was gonna do it myself he said i was crazzi and that u need at least a 14gauge needle or serious infections can occur. My friend pierced her own belly button and got really bad infections and needed sugery to have it fixed.. NOT TO FUN!!!but pierce your ears you may be scared at first but afterwards its fine.

Hey, Its me again, my answer didn't make much sense so I'llexplain it better for you guys: I took one of those fake "no-holes" earings you can pick up at the dollar store and sterilized it with hydrogen peroxide (sorry for bad spelling) really well, i left it in for about a week (it left an indention half way through my ear), then took a sterilized regular earing and pushed it through the rest of the way. It turned out good and I'm thinking about doing my ears the same way.

I've got 4 holes in each of my ears, and I pierced my last two by myself. Only one of my 4th holes have gotten infected, so I let it grow up. I'm fixing to do my lower cartilage and my boyfriend's ear.


I, infact, did use a safety pin. I first burned the pin, then let it soak in rubbing alcohol. I numbed my ears with ice, and when they were so cold that all I could feel was pressure, I stuck the pin through. The toughest part is getting it through the back skin though. Push REALLY hard and just get it over with, it hurts more to ease it in.

Clean it everyday with neosporin or something of the sort, and turn them so the skin doesn't grow around them. Whenever you are turning them, make sure your hands are CLEAN, I'm pretty sure that is why my 4th hole got infected.

I believe getting it done professionally is ridiculous, and it costs a lot for a poor little girl like myself. I would not reccomend doing your bellybutton or nipples or anything of the sort by yourself. If your parentals won't let you, wait until you are 18 and you can sign the realease form yourself.


Happy Piercing!

OMG! EVERYBODY- LISTEN UP! YOU WANNA PIERCING! HERE! I KNOW IM ONLY 15 BUT I HAVE 22 PIERCINGS ON MY LEFT EAR- ALL THAT IVE DONE MYSELF SOME ARE ON MY INSIDE CARTIDELDGE AND STUFF AND THE ONLY PIERCING THATS EVER GOTTEN INFECTED IS THE 1! ON MY RIGHT EAR- WHICH WAS DONE WHEN I WAS 2 BY A PROFESSIONAL AND GOT INFECTED WHEN I WAS 15.

EARS- DONT USE A NEEDLE OR PIN. THEY ARENT GAUGED RIGHT. IF YOUVE HAD YOUR EARS PIERCED ONCE BY A PROFFESIONAL, THEY USED A SPECIAL PIERCING EARING WHICH IS HOLLOW AND HAS AN EXTRA SHARP TIP. SLOWLY HOLD IT UP TO THE SPOT AND PUSH FOR A WHILE- ABOUT 15 MINUTES AND YOU CAN FEEL IT GO THROUGH. IF YOU HAVE SENSITIVE EARS NUMB IT WITH AN ICECUBE FIRST BUT SOMETIMES THIS DOESNT HELP. RIGHT AWAY, PUT AN EARING IN AND HOLD IT IN HYDROGEN PEROXIDE FOR A LIL BIT. DO THAT EVERY SINGLE NIGHT FOR A WHILE UNTIL WHEN YOU TOUCH IT IT DOESNT HURT. EVEN THEN YOU MIGHT WANT TO SOAK IT IN HYDROGEN PEROXIDE EVERY ONCE IN A WHILE!

BB- DONT DO IT. ITS THAT SIMPLE. IT WILL GET INFECTED NO MATTER HOW WELL YOU DO IT. THE MOST TOP LAYER HURTS THE MOST SO YOULL GO THROUGH ALL THE PAIN OF THE OTHER LAYERS AND THEN REALIZE YOU CANT DO IT AFTER YOUR ALMOST THERE. I HAD MY BB PIERCED, TOOK IT OUT AND REDID IT MYSELF A YEAR LATER. WORST THING OF MY LIFE.

CLIT- DO THE STICK METHOD IT WORKS EVERYTIME AND THE CLITORIS RARELY GET SINFECTED BCUZ OF THE CLEANING DISCHARGE PRODUCED BY YOUR BODY.

EARBROW- THIS IS A PROCESS THAT YOU SHOULD DO AFTER YOU GET OUT OF TEH SHOWER, BCUZ THATS WHEN YOUR SKIN IS SOFTENED AND CAN BE BROKEN MOST EASILY. LIKE PLUCKING.USE A SPECIALY BOUGHT NEEDLE FOR THIS.

THE ONLY THING IS- I WANT TO DO MY NOSE. BUT I DONT DO PIERCING WITHOUT EXPIERENCE FIRST. I CANT GET EXPIERENCE ON MY NOSE YET, SO I NEED SOMEBODY WHOS DONE IT OR HAS PLENTY OF EXPIERENCE WHO CAN TELL
1. ME WHAT TO USE
2. WHERE TO DO IT
3. WHAT METHOD
4. THE AMOUNT OF PAIN
5. HOW TO TAKE CARE FO TI AFTERWARDS

AND ANY MORE INFORMATION BCUZ BEFORE YOU PIERCE SOMETHING THESE ARE THE THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW!

HAVE FUN PIERCING I TOTALLY RECOMMEND IT BUT REMEMBER- LIKE SEX- DO IT SAFE OR TAKE A RISK. NEVER USE A SAFETY PIN AND ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS CLEAN IT AFTERWARDS. IF YOU NEED TO CONTACT ME SINCE I PROBABLY WONT BE ABLE TO VIEW THIS SITE AGAIN AND YOU HAVE INFORMATION FOR ME- PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE E MAIL ME AT SEXXISKAGIRL89@MR-POTATOHEAD.COM

hey. i pierce my self all the time. i've done 9 piercings myself...some one my ears, my bellybutton and my clit. (discusting, i know lol) i've never had a problem with any of them. all i did with my ears was sterilize a BIG safety pin in ear cleaner that i got from claires for my second holes. then i numb it with ice and slowly push it thru. it usually takes about ten mintues and i suggest listening to music and singing along so you don't get grossed out lol. push really hard...especially if it's your cartilage. i would also suggest that if you're going to pierce something besides ears and you're scared...start with ears becuz they're pretty safe. even if you don't want to keep them in just do them so you are sure you can handle it. for my belly button i cleaned it with hand sanitizer stuff (the pin and the area i was gonna pierce) and i numbed it a bit but since i did it over the course of an hour and a half it didn't hurt one bit anyhow. i still havn'tfound a good way to hide piercings from my parents but usually i just put my hair over my ears becuz i don't have piercings on my face and most of them are hidden by clothes anyway. my friend pierced her own nose and she just put concealer on it when she gets home. i don't think there's anything wrong with do piercings yourself if you're not 18. just be careful and clean. i would suggest buying piercing needles but hey, i live in a small town and since i've got no place to buy the needles, i'm stuck with safety pins. tonite i'm doing my friends second holes, cartilage, and eyebrow!

also,dont feel bad because im 17 and my mom wont let me get a tatoo(but im about to be 18 so it doesnt really matter:)

For example, one person he had to do a skin graft about 5 inches across for her botched bellybutton pierce. another one was an ear pierce but it got infected and then necrosis (dying flesh) happened and they had to remove about 3/4 of the ear. yuk. its better to wait until you can afford a pro to do it.

I got my nose & tounge my prof. but on ebay i ordered body jewelry and it had 14g peircing needles so i peirced my own belly button. i sterlized everything before and it turned out fine. i think doing it with a safety pin is stupid and to small for a belly button ring to go through in the first place. i would suggest getting a needle, ebay is good just make sure u sterilize and make sure it comes in a sealed package.

i recently pierced my cartilage by myself (and I'mnot at all afraid of pain) but even thought i pushed extremely hard, the disgusting popping noise made the whole thing unworthy and to make matters worse, the earing went in sideways :( so i had to take it out and hear more popping noises GROSS! if anyone know how to pierce cartilage straight or how to safely pierce belly buttons, please please please email me!!!

I have 5 piercings on my left ear. 3 regular lower holes that i all got done professionally. and 2 cartlidge holes. the first top cartlidge hole i got done professionally on both sides they got infected but not to bad. i then pierced my own like 3 mm underneath by just sticking a piercing earing through slowly but hardly any pain. make sure you use real gold or silver to help reduce infection. my point about having pierced my own earing was that the earing i pierced never gets infected and the professional ones always do. i read you are not supposed to pierce your cartalidge with a piercing gun, you should just use a needle. becasue a piercing gun can shatter the cartlidge and cause infection. so anyways i think it is actually safer to pierce your own cartlidge unless they don't use a piercing gun.  just get some ice, and a piercing earing once you poke it through just put the backing on no need for more pain.  a piercing earing is just a sharp earing like if you have ever gotten pierced before with a piercing gun just use it over again, if not a safety pin will work fine. just wash your hands, and use tons of rubbing alchohol not peroxide. you can't go wrong. good luck

ok guys me and my best friend lindsay are right here we have peirced our own ears 8 times plus our cartaliges and belly button. today we did 4 plus both of our cartaliges and my moms. all you have to do is get sharp backed earrings and some ice. (make sure your earrings are steril. rubbing alcohol.) then just rub the ice on the front and back of your ears and go for it.(same goes for your belly button. but be careful on this one. try to use a 14g earring (sharp backed) or peircing needle) it doesnt hurt to bad. the cartalige should make 2 snaping sort of noises. the first one is it going through the cartalige and the 2nd is it going all the way through. make sure you turn them alot! but put rubbing alcohol on them as much as you can. hope this helps. GOOD LUCK.

No way going to claires with your sis don't work, they have to see ID and if she doesn't have a certain thingy on her ID card that means that she isn't a legal guardian. I used to work for claires and I pierced so many peoples ears and its easy maybe your sis can do it for you. Trust me claires needs ID kids tried it with me all the time, and I needed to see a certain thing on the ID card to have permission to pierce their ears. P.S. I am 19 so I kno these tricks and I kno how to pierce ears.

So I cleaned everything with hydrogen peroxide and it didn't hurt at all sticking the safety pin through, so i waited and sort of twisted the the safety pin so the earring would fit in, then i took the safety pin out and tried to put the earring in but it wouldn't go through so i did the safety pin thing again and then the safety pin took forever to get out. Now I wanna pierce my cartilage myself can someone tell me THE EXACT DETAILS ON PIERCING IT YOURSELF!

i have 17 piercings and I'm 14, 16 of those are in m ears, i have done eight myself and they have healed just fine, i wouldn't recommend you piercing yourself anywhere unless you realize the consequences and have researched into it a lot, and you know an awful lot about the history,aftercare,jewelry,piecing tools and the actual piercing itself.
i am extremely into body modification, and know stupid amounts of info about it, so when i pierce myself, i know exactly what I'm in for and how to deal with it, there's not much that can go wrong mind you, piercings have been around for thousands of years, and were performed by our ancestors and the cavemen!so, if they can pierce any part of their body, shove dirty rocks that they've just picked up off the floor,and the piercing still proceeds to heal, I'm sure we'll be ok with our metal jewelry and earrings. just take note, i wouldn't bother with doing your tongue,if the veins in that thing are hit, there is a good chance you will bleed to death. neither would i bother with D.I.Y genital piercings, you screw that up...you screw your sex life, well, its all up to you, Happy piercing!

Hey! I just got my ears pierced a few days ago. It didn't hurt at all.(maybe a little bit.) I recommend you go to claires instead of piercing yourself because you are less likely to get infections. Definetly get the starter kit and clean 3 times a day. Try to get 14k gold because sometimes you are allergic to the regular stuff. Also, the sensitive solutions earrings are okay after you get your ears pierced. And, also, wait at least 5 weeks before you change the earrings.

To pierce your ears yourself, this is what you do: Take a big needle (NOT a small sewing needle!!) and sterilize it.  Then mark the spot on your ear that you want to pierce and stick the needle through.  Jam it in a bit hard and you will hear some pops.  Then once you get near to the end gently twist it and soon the needle will be in.  Leave it in for five minutes before inserting the earring.  Clean your piercing twice a day and let it heal for at least a month.

ok heres some advice. DO NOT pierce your upper ear with a safety pin, If you do so theres a good chance it will get infected, and with cartillege it gets infected inside of the ear, so instead of eventually going away you end up with cartilage collapse. So unless you want it to look like someone took a chunk out of your ear (im seriouse about that) dont do it. Im 17 and i must admit i tried some stupid stuff, I've done numerouse piercings on myslf, 4 on my earlobes and 2 in the upper ear, Ive also done a couple home made tatts. Seems like a cool idea, its not. You have to relise that doing anything like self peircing or tattooing theres a certain amount of sqeemishness that you have. so you are very likely to make it more painfull than it needs to be, this is a big resion to get a pro to do the big stuff for you. p.s. home made tatts dont work, the ink wont stay and you think its hard to hide a piercing? try hideing a tatt.

When i got my 1st hole done i was 10 and it didn't hurt at all.Then when i was 12 i had my second hole done and it hurt alot more than i thought it would.I had both of them done with a gun by a proffesional at Claires.When i was 14 i got my third hole, my nose and my belly done.I did my 3rd hole myself and it didn't hurt as much as it did with my 2nd hole i just numbed it 4 30 secs with a ice cube then stuck in a sewing neele.Then quickly put in an earing because i have sensitive ears.I also did my nose which really didn't hurt and i did the same with it as with my 3rd hole 4 my ears and i had my belly button done by a profesional because i was scared of infection and didn't think i would be able to go all the way thru.All of my piercings have turned out fine the only regret i have is with my second hole i wish i ha done it myself now i no that it didn't hurt at all.Piercing your own ears is a great idea it definately worked for me, just make sure you have the right stuff and no weather your ears are sensitive to whateva you wil be sticking into them also make sure the earing you will be puttin in is the same width as the needle you use.Also my two of my mates recently had there Toungue's pierced i went along with one of them for support but the other did it her self altho the one who had it done my a pro said it hurt alot and the utha sed it didn't hurt one bit the 1 hu did hers herself ended up going to hospital because of infection ( here toungue when a moldy green colour ) shes left with a mingin scar and scar tissue and has loads of regrets about it.Its great to pierce yourself but make sure you know the facts about what you  wanna pierce, somethings aren't meant for piercing yourself =)

You CAN use safety pins to pierce your ears as long as you STERILIZE completely.  You CAN touch your earrings as long as you're just turning them, and as long as you clean them afterward.  Don't change them for 6 to 8 weeks, and keep them clean.

I have pierced my ears 12 times by myself you all make it our to be so terrible! Its barely painful if you no what your doing and ya its going to hurt if you use a SAFETY PIN! Come on who does that! Go to your local fabric store like Joann fabrics go to the sewing isle and get sewing needles they are cheap and you can by them in a pack! wash the needle very good and use Vaseline on the tip of the needle and the back  of your ear it helps the needle to slide better and go though more smoothly. I do all my piercings myself and i have done a bunch for friends but you have to research what you are doing and no HOW to do it before you try it on someone else or yourself.

i pierced my ear last night at about 1 in the morning and now its all swollen. i sterilized a sewing needle, cleaned my ears, washed my hands, got my ear really numb with ice, took an apple, put it behind my ear and pushed the needle through then i put my thumb where the needle went through on the back of my ear and stuck the earing in, and it did bleed i dont know if thats normal but im guessing it is when you put a needle through yourself... kinda common sense, unless its not supposed to bleed them im just gunna sound like a big dumb idiot. and for everyone out there wanting to get their belly button pierced but your parents wont let you; it took me a looong time to convince my mom but i just kept telling her that a bunch of my friends have been getting theirs pierced at the same place and nothings wrong with it, then i started talking about more "risky" piercings like my tongue and my mom was like nope ill only let you get your belly button pierced the rest has to wait until youre 18 (which im okay with for some reason) another thing that helps convince parents is if other people in you family have it done and nothign went wrong with it

i just wanted to say that you should not use a safety pin! they are not meant for piercings of anykind! it does not matter if you think you are sterlizing with hot water or rubbing alcohol. you do not want to pierce yourself with something that bends. and getting drunk wont help, youll wake up the next morning with a hangover and a sore ear. i have 15 piercing(3 of which i did myself all with sterilized PIERCING needles) and i love them so just be safe YOU WILL REGRET IF YOU DONT!!!

Please don't pierce your self! Safety pins are made of really really really low grade medal, and it being in your skin for five minutes can cause serious infection. There are nerves in your ears that can damage your whole face and give you bells palsy, do you really know where to pierce? Gathering your own supplies, THE RIGHT KIND, will cost about the same as going to a professional piercer. Also don't use a piercing gun on your cartilage, it doesn'tpierce right, it just rips the skin. This can cause major infection, or abnormal ugly piercing. So Clairs and Wal-mart is a no-no. Save yourselves tons of heart aches (and money from medical bills) and just do it right!

Also don't use a peircing gun on your cartlage, it dosen'tpierce right, it just rips the skin. This can cause major infection, or abnormal ulgy piercings. So Clairs and Wal-mart is a no-no. Save yourselves tons of heart aches (and money from medical bills) and just do it right!

hey ok i did my friends cartlige a while ago and it turned out fine.  i also did mine but i didnt want my parents to no so i let it close up. this is how i did it:
first i took a safty pin one of the big ones and ran it over a lighter for a bit and then i rubed off the oxidation (black stuff) with rubbing alcohal and then i cleaned the ear and earing with rubbing alcohal and just went for it. i pushed it through and kept my two fingers on the other side for suport and so that the needle would go in the middle of it.  i felt the safty pin in for a couple of mins and then took it out fast and put the peirsing stud in. you have to jiggle it around a little because the whole is no heeled so there is no true path in or out and you have to find the back hole.  when i peirced mine i did not use any numbing stuff cause i didnt find it nessasry but i will remind you that people have different levels of pain and my not painful maybe your "HOLY #%!$" painful.  so once the earing was in i just cleaned it with the cleaning solution... rubbing alcohal makes it dry but it still cleans but the solution they give you at a place is better. also i did hear a lil crunch while doing it so i believe it was just the needle going threw the cart.

if you have any questions for me just im me at needless123 its on aim so good luck with your peircing

Ok I'm pretty young, only 12... right now I have 2 piercings in each year, 3 times each * first ones closed up a couple years ago.* Both were done professionally. I've read over half this section, its pretty much half and half, so just read this-

1. I wanna pierce my ears for a 3rd hole
2. I have looked up a lot of stuff about it, thinking about proffesional piercing....
3. Will it hurt my second earring?? I just got it about 3 weeks ago I still have to wait another 1 or 2 weeks before I take it out grr.
4. I want my cartlige pierced BADLY but nooo my parents said... to many infection things. So I probobly will wear fake ones, where can I get them at?

Are you all serious? I can't believe how stupid you guys are, seriously. A REAL piercer comes on here and gives you some PROFESSIONAL advise, and nobody takes it, yet you take the advise of some 13 year old douchbag who thinks saftey pins are perfect for piercing. Well, I'm sorry to tell you this, but they're not. You guys should really do your homework on piercings. Take the advise of the professionals, go buy a piercing needle. if you can't get one online, go down to the piercing parlor in your town, please please PLEASE use your head!! ask the piercer there for tips, if they start to give you a pep talk, you can always walk out if you really want to.

USE COMMON SENSE PEOPLE!!!

Babycakes... chances are the reason ur ear is swelling and stuff is that when you get ur ear done professionally they have a hollow needle so that the skin and cartilage and stuff is displaced. If you only did it with a safety pin then all that skin and stuff prolly got pushed back into ur ear and is trying to get back out.

Also, I've had my cart pierced for about 10 months, and i found that if i left my stud with coins and stuff before putting them in my ear when i changed them i got huge puss lumps on the back of my ear and I had to clean them heaps and pop them to get the puss out.

Maybe ur not cleaning ur ear properly or touching it too much or getting germs on it.

I think all of you shouldn't pierce your body parts by yourself..there are some great consequences...such as what happened to my friend Jerry....she first pierced her nipple by herself with a regular needle...she said it didnt hurt...but a few days later...it started milkin out green puss....she also pierced lip and it turned out like a disaster....it became black and blue and crusty bloody red....the other part was her eye brow...well i dont wanna start there...i can just say that piercing your body parts could be the freakiest thing to do...well....i know some went well but sometimes it can turn out to a bad....take extra pre-cautions like getting it professionally done....but if your stubborn and juss wanna do it....HEY!!!  go right ahead it's your body....juss becareful and remember kids.....

I'm jess and i have done alot of piercings estimate more then 50, and i suggest you buy some professional piercing needles to do anything. I`ve done tongues, noses, every part of an ear, lips (on left and right sides), eyebrows. im not professional but i have professional equipment and i know what to look for when i do things to people and myself i take percautions and sterilize everything even the part im piercing and my hands i think you should let your parents decide if you should get piercings or not because they made you they are raising you.
you should really listen to them just think about it when your 18 you can do what you want. they just want to make sure you dont make mistakes because what if your 18 and you dont want those piercings anymore? now you have that hole in your head for the rest of your life. thats all they are worried about. i probaly sound like a parent but im only 16
i understand the concept of things that parents say. alls im saying is be careful with what you do when you pierce yourself or you get a tattoo make a wise choice about your tattoo or piercings。

hey, i think piercing ur ear or ne part of ur body by urself or havong it done by a friend is really bad! specially with a safety pin or a needle!! i have 3 piercings on each ear and ive just done 1 of them myself, i didnt do it mysef i actually just re-pierced it cuz it was closing-ne ways, not my point- if u really wanna get it pierced go 2 the hospital, might be a lil expensive but its totally owrth it, if u dont hav the money then u can get it done at a tattoo parlor but i dont suggest that cuz wat they use might be infected, u cud even do it at claires!! id rather u guys use a gun, its faster n hurts less...just DONT pierce urself!! but if u still insist on it, its safe 2 pierce ur ear lobe, thats it...

Ok, I understand the need to Pierce something. I have been there. Go to a reputable place or purchase, new and clean equipment and get info on how to do this before just stabbing yourself and possibly causing a life-time of pain and frustration or possibly a serious infection that could kill you.
If needed, explain to your parents that you really feel the need to express yourself and why you want it....as you shouldn't want it because someone else has it or tells you to.
then if that doesn't work, get the equipment and a trusted, experienced friend to help. If possible, maybe the mom of a friend......that is how I got one of mine! and be sterile about it, the cleaner the better it will be in the long run.
DO NOT PURCHASE anything other than unopened, guaranteed packages from ebay if you must by from there....you never know what you are getting and anything used for piercing, that touches the skin, should be thrown away aftward, not used again...it isn't healthy!

This is a professional opinion ok? ive been piercing for 6 years and please listen to me. ive had to deal with countless careless people who have pierced themselfs and it has gone horribly wrong. one guy tried to do his own eyebrow. it went a funny greeny colour and was about the size of a golfball. having to cut the ear ring out of that was not pleasant. Your ears and nose can be done safely enough. most other places have blood vessels which need to be avoided. if you try and pierce your tongue yourself and you hit the artery you could even die from blood loss. and another thing. if you are going to ignore me and pierce yourself in other places, dont use safety pins. buy a kit from the internet. that is all. take care.

Why use a safety pin at all? Just buy a stud thats made for peircing (the ones with a pointed back) and shove it through. I peirced mine and several other people's with them. Works best, just make sure u push with ur thumb it's hard to get through. Good Luck and Have Fun!

Well do what i did for all my done it myself piercings. Go get a needle from a place that does piercings. So its a steral (spelling sucks) then just push and put the jewelry in. I dont wait any time i just push needle then take jewelry and push it through following the needle. I'd suggest only doing your ears yourself.  i seen too many ppl mess up other things like bellybuttons specally.  make sure needle is same gage as ur jewelry. if you cant get a needle i suggest not doing it at all. Im training at a place called skin immages for doing this stuff proffecionaly. It aint as easy as you think for some things to get pierced

I just peirced my cartilage, and it looks great! Here are the steps i took:

1) First, gather all supplies which include an earring, a SEWING needle, rubbing alcohol or peroxide, ice, lint free cloth or towel (toilet paper works) and a lighter or match.

2) Start my soaking your earring in the rubbing alcohol or peroxide. This is to clean the earring.

3) While the earring is soaking, knumb your ear for approximately 3-5 minutes with ice.  This will help ease any pain.

4) After knumbing your ear, take the sewing needle, and burn it with fire from the lighter or match until it is almost unbareable to touch.  This will kill the bacteria on the needle. Once u do this, wipe the needle with a CLEAN lint free towel or cloth (or toilet paper).  Dont be alarmed when the needle changes color as u r burning, that will happen.

5) Okay, now u are almost ready for the "fun" part...lol.  Now, knumb your ear again with ice for about 1 minute.  After this, clean your cartilage area with rubbing alcohol or peroxide.

6) Take the needle and SLOWLY push it in to your cartilage to break skin.  If you do it too fast, then you might not get the hole where you want it, and it might not come out straight.  

7) Take the needle out.  now that you've broken only the top layer of skin, you can see where you will be placing your hole. If you do not like its placement, then try again in a different spot.

8) OKAYYYY, so now you've found where u are going to place your earring. SLOWLY push the needle in the desired spot.  IF you did it right, this should not hurt. You should only feel a little pinch, but nothing serious.  Once you get it almost all the way through, you are now going to have to break the skin in the back.  now, you push it HARDER until the skinn breaks.  Now that the needle is all the way through, do not try to force the needle further, you will only hurt yourself.

9) Keep the needle in your ear for about 5 minutes.  Then slowly pull the needle out.  Take your earring out of the alcohol/peroxide and push it in to the hole.  it is recommended that you use an earring with a smaller post to start out. once the hole heals, and stretches you may increase the size.  

WELL, THAT IS IT!!!! i hope this helped some people who cosidered peircing their cartilage

***** P.S. BE SURE TO KEEP YOUR EAR CLEAN.  USE ALCOHOL OR PEROXIDE TO CLEAN IT ATLEAST 2 TIMES DAILY, AND MAKE SURE TO TURN THE RING IN YOUR EAR SO THAT THE EARRING WONT BECOME ATTACHED TO YOUR SKIN WHEN IT HEALS!~~~~~

  Hey im 13 and 2 years ago i got my first and second pircings. I went to clairs and it hardly hurt at all. about a mont ago i pirces my cartilige and it was fine. it was a little red and swelled up, but after about a week it was fine now it looks great.
  Today i perced my lobe again it dint hurt hardly at all, but it hurt less when i went to clairs. I guess thats because they do it faster.
  to pierce my lobe i just did the same thing that i did for my cart. I took a sewing needle sterilized it and just shoved it through my ear. I didnt even numb it.
  I guess my advice is to pierce where ever you want just make sure that you know wht you are doing and that every thing is clean.

  o yeah also make sure that your parents dont see. i got short hair so it was hard to hide and when they saw they freaked out. But after awhile i think they started to like it.

my friend and i peirced our ears and i had no problems wat so ever. just sterilize the needle with fire and alcochol then numb your ear wit ice. mark the spot of where you want to have the earing go with permanent marker, put an apple on the back of your ear and have friend jab a large sewing needle (fat) in. leave the needle in for about 12-18 minutes and twist it every once and awhile so it won't close up. pull it out and put an earing in right away! doesn't hurt at all and i haven't had any infections

I am double pierced, one in my top cartilage and i have my tragus pierced, just about a month ago i pierced my earlobe so now i have three, there is NO problem at all with piercing your own EARLOBES. I did it with a safty pin and all you need to make sure of it that you clean the spot with rubbing alcohol and clean the needle with rubbing alcohol (i used a safty pin, which IS ok as long as you have a 14 K gold earing to put in your new hole) you can simply hold half an apple behind where you want to pierce yourself to give you something to push into. (if your doing it with a pin) just twist it a little, you dont have to leave it in for a few minutes, and pull it out, and replace it with your GOLD earing. DO NOT pierce your cartilage yourself, there is a vein there that can KILL you if you damage it, and if it doesnt kill you, then you can get cartilage DEFORMATION.

Me and my friend got bored and I desideing i wanted mah cartlige pierced. So she put ice on the front of mah ear for 5 mintues and on tha back for 5 mintues. then she said 'take 4 breaths then let them out' then i breathed 3 times then i felt a pain in my ear then heared a 'POP' then she said 'all done' then it was over. and it got infected once but i clenaed it with perixode so now it isnt infected any more. it looks really good. anyone planning to do it GO FOR IT!!! oh yeah and i pierced it with just the stud earring. Shove it tru and dont look!

ok let me start of by saying YALL ARE ALL CRAZY why are you piercing yourselves?!?!?! im 13 and i know how it feels to want to have something pierced really bad. i wanted to have my belly button pierced but i was to scared to do it myself. the only piercing i have is once in my ears... and for a reason. i know how to pierce ears and i did a few of my friends and they all turned out fine but one of them thought they knew how to do it themselves...BIG MISTAKE she decided to do her second hole herself and SHE IS PARALYZED NOW SHE WONT EVER BE ABLE TO WALK AGAIN ALL BECAUSE OF A STUPID PIERCING the needle wasnt sterile AFTER she boiled it and soaked it in peroxide ive learned my lesson ill never peirce anything on my own again!!!! PLEASE LISSEN TO MY ADVICE    DONT PEIRCE ON YOUR OWN you could be seriously hurt for ever thats a mistake you cant take back and it could mess up your whole life forever   GET IT DONE PROFESSONALLY for only a little bit more but it could save your life TRUST ME ON THIS ONE PLEASE

i have my ear pierced 11 times on the left side and 9 on the right. I have my eyebrow pierced twice on both sides. i have my tongue pierced twice. i have my belly button pierced 3 times. i also have my lebrea(chin).
i did them all my self (use hollow needles!!!).I own a piecing shop. It dosnt hurt to do it yourself but dont do your nose,tounge,genitalia,or lebrea on your own it can cause you to become parilized.Use hollow needles and RUBBING ALCHOHAL for all home piercings.

Folks, piercing ear lobes, cartilage, belly buttons etc with a safety pin is extremely stupid! A proper piercing needle is chemically sharpened and causes very little trauma to the part of the body being pierced.
Guns are fine for ear-lobes but for nothing else the studs used to piece with are quite blunt and shouldn't be used to try and pierce anything except what they were invented for - to pierce ear lobes. On piercing the cartilage of your ear i.e high up, you need to be extremely careful the cartilage of the ear has very little blood running through it - if you get an infection and it turns septic you stand the risk of getting gangrene in the upper part of your ear - i.e loss of bloodflow to the upper part of the ear causing tissue death ...turns green...black and falls off.
I have been a professional piercer for 15 years and have seen all sorts of horrors where people have tried to pierce various parts of their bodies, so please be careful - wait until you get permission and go to a reputable piercer who will explain what they will do etc and adhere to proper cleaning using lukewarm water and salt, do not use peroxide , or other cleaning spirits as they are too harsh.

hi all. I'm 14 and just pierced my ears by myself. I now have 7 holes, 5 done by a pro. the ones by a pro all got infected. piercing is simple. get some alcohol pads, a sewing neddle, some ice, and a pointed stud. numb the ear whil you disinfect the needle, then put the needle against your ear and push. I got my brother to keep me company. Listen to music or someone talking, it takes ur mind off the piercing. at the back of the ear, u have 2 push hard. Then leave the needle in 4 a few minutes, and quickly change it 4 teh earring (once uve disinfected it with alcohol.) puut some antiseptic like u get at the mall on it, and leave it in for 2 weeks. turn it every day, but make sure ur hands r clean first.

I'm a piercer, only 15 but ive been doing it for a long time now.
I pierced my own bellybutton when i was 13.  I simply iced it for about 15 minutes then shoved a small safety pin through.
It took me a few tries to get it straight - i'm a perfectionist..
I will say that it took me about 25 minutes to get it all the way through the last piece of skin, but i have no regrets. I cleaned it with ear care stuff from claires and a small bubble of puss formed for a little bit at the top but went away after about a week.

As far as ears go, they're so simple.. your pain tolerance is what determines it.  Ive done my ears 8 times, not using ice.  ive had no problem with infection.  you just need to make sure you put flame to the pin to disenfect it and soak the earings in rubbing alcohol.


Any questions feel free to IM me

Okay, seriously, people need to pay attention to this. To all the people that plan to pierce their belly buttons or whatever themselves, please read this article, and spare yourself the pain. http://www.bmezine.com/pierce/07-navel/A50110/navdoito.html
Piercing your ears is simple enough, if you take care of it. Piercing other parts of your body is never as easy. Countless friends of mine have pierced their own noses, lips, nips, and navels and not one has been satisfied with them yet. Take the time and the money to support your local piercer and get them done professionally, you'll be happy you did.

The steps to self peircing your ears


1. supplies needed

A. safty-pin/needle
B. rubbing alcohol/hydrogen proxide
C. cotton balls and q-tips
D. slice of apple/potatoe/something hard but soft enough that a needle can slide into
E. ice
F. wash off marker
G. earing (sanitze before putting into ear)

step 1
clean your ears with alcohol or hydrogen proxide
clean the needle/ safty-pin

step 2
mark the spot where you want your ears peirced with the marker

step 3
numb your ear with the ice

step 4
put slice of apple/potatoe/something hard but soft enough that a needle can slide into behind your ear (your ear should still be numb)

step 5
stick needle into the spot you want to be peirced twisting it as you go through (it might hurt)

step 6
keep the needle in for about 30 seconds after you fully go through the ear
then replace with earing

step 7
clean with alcohol/hydrogen proxide 2-3 times a day rotating earing everytime (so you ear doesnt grow with the earing and get stuck to it) for 3 monthes (keep same earing in)

step 8
you may change earings but still clean ears for about a week to 2 weeks after


i cannot garuntee your ear will not get infected

Hey everyone that wants to pierce their own ears and ear cartilage. It's so easy!I have done my own and my friends ears.First sterilize the needle and earings ur gonna use by boiling them in Hot water for 5 mins.Then wash ur hands and put the needle and earings on a paper towel.Place marks on ur ears where u want to pierce them and then burn the end of the needle with a liter.Place ice on ur ears for a while and make sure the needle is still HOT. When ur ear is numb stick the VERY HOT needle through ur ear on ur mark. Leave the needle in for a couple of mins. because if u move it right away bad things can happen.Push the needle through the back of the ear do not pull it out the front. Then stick the earing in. It's that simple.
      Anyways does any1 have info. on how to clean newly pierced ears? Thats the only thing I dont know. HappyBunnyis1 is my AIM(Aol Instant Messanger) Sreen Name. Please if u have any info. IM me thanx. KD

Hi, were 12 and last night we double pierced our ears.  When everybody went to sleep, we got hot water, 2 sewing needles, ice, 2 slices of apple, and rubbing alcohal.  Then we put the ice on our ear for 5-10 minutes, rubbed some rubbing alcohal on it and put the apple behind it, and pushed the needle through.  Then we left the needle in there for awhile (about 15 mintues) turned the needle, then took it  out.  Then the hard part came, putting the earing through.  It took about 5 minutes to get the earing through all the way.  IT DOESNT HURT AT ALL, AS LONG AS YOU NUMB YOUR EAR WITH ICE.  our parents wouldnt let us get them, and they havent found out yet.   If your hessitating to pierce your ear, do it, you can always take it out!!

Okay, I know there are tons of people who say never pierce anything yourself, and that there are probably tons of things that can go wrong if you disregard their advice. I can't tell you what will work for everyone but I CAN tell you what worked for me. I am 16 years old and I have four piercings in each ear. The first one in each ear was done professionally. I did the other six myself because I didn't have parental permission. I have long hair and the earrings have been easy to hide, but that's beside the point...

I've put holes in both my earlobes and my cartilage using hydrogen peroxide and a safety pin. I know you are not supposed to use safety pins, but I never had any issues with infection. This is how I did it.

Mark on your ear with a pen where you want the hole (s) to be. Otherwise the earrings may be in different places on each ear, which isn't good unless you want them that way. Soak the safety pin in hydrogen peroxide and then push it through your ear. You can use ice to numb your ear if you want to. I've found it's just as easy to do it without numbing my ear first. I will be honest with you, it's going to hurt some no matter what. If you want to minimize the pain then go to a professional with a piercing gun. (I would advise that anyway if your parents will say yes. Only try DIY as a last resort...) Rotate the pin a few times, then take it out and put an earring in. It's easiest if you have a piercing earring with a pointed tip, but any earring will do. Make sure the earring is sterile! I cannot stress that enough.

I am a 16 year old man,going to be 17 in about 2 months, I have had a total of 10 piercings at one time,and have done a type of my own body art. So I know a bit about scars and piercing.

First I'll start off by saying this my first 6 piercings were done in school by friends. The other 4; 3 cartiledges and 1 lobe I did myself. Ear piercing yourself is probably the least dangerous of all.

I have done my piercings with any thing from a safety pin to a thumb tack.Whatever you use clean it,light the needle/pin. By lighting it I mean use a lighter to heat it till you can no longer hold it, then if you want/can throw it in a kind of antibacterial disinfectant.

For when you first pierce I recommend starting off with an 18 or a 16 gauge earing. Do not try to gauge or change the earing soon after piercing. By soon I mean with in the first week.

Lobes are easier to pierce then cartiledge so start there. You will here a popping sound when pushing the earing through DO NOT be scared that always happens. For your first piercing I would have a friend do it so you'll know what to expect for the next time.

When doing a cartiledge, expect that it will be sore for a while. don't try to change the earing and remember to frequently clean around ANY piercing.

Now onto a little section to explain what I meant when I said body art. I have inflicted a type of scarrification upon myself. I couldn't 'get a tattoo so I decided I would scar what I wanted into my flesh. Remember if you do this, its PERMANENT I can not stress this enough. I don't regret any of my scarring though.

I did it first by drawing what I wanted onto my arm (thats where I did my first scarring) and then I took a paper clip and heated it with a zippo and traced over the the drawing. Altogether for all of my scarrification it was about 8 hours of work. I cleaned with peroxide and soap often. If you can't handle pain don't bother trying. It came out very well and is still highly visible.

Thats about all good luck piercing addicts. And be careful when getting pierced it can be addictive. I started getting one and about 2-3 months later had 10. Best of luck kiddies.

My mom just pierced my cartilage with a gun and i didn't even feel it! seriously.  (But she was trained to do it and has her own guns.  so if you do get it done with a gun make sure it is very clean.) If you are someone who is afraid of needles its a great way to do it and it does NOT leave a bump on the back of your ear.  so go ahead and do it with a gun, NOT a safety pin!!!  they are to hold babies diapers together, not to punch through your ear!Have fun!

You people are pretty stupid if you want to try and peirce anything yourselves. Go to a professional who knows what they are doing. You guys could get infected, and if it's anything but your ear, like say your nose, bad infections could set in and then it can travel up to your brain. Better off not to use a safety pin if you ask me.

if you want to pierce you belly button then you should get a bigg needle and pierce it from the BOTTOM and then go UP. buy a belly ring before doing it and put it thru after the needle stays in for a while...i dont reccomend piercing a belly button b/c my friend did it and it got infected but always NUMB it first

If you already have one  piercing in your ear lobe, and you're looking to get a second or third hole, but your parents say no, i have found you can fool them if you pierce them (please do it professionally)the second or third time and then just take out the earrings you already had in your old holes. Your parents won't look, and even if they do, they'll see the number of holes in your head are the same, they won't notice the positioning of the holes. then once they're healed just put earrings in your old holes too. By that time, all the holes will be healed and your parents won't be able to stop you anyway. It's sneaky but it worked for me and my cousin.

WOW I already periced my ear and then thought well what if it gets infected maybe I should look up so info on it turns out I did it perfectly. Its been 2 days now it still hurts but hey what do you expect. I figure I'll give to the end of spring break and if ll is good I recomend pericing your ear. If your not a person who has allergies and never gets infections then I recomend taking a needle putting rubbing acohol on your ear and the needle then stick it through. Yes it will hurt, dont be a baby.now the mistake I made is not leaving the needle in for awhile. but I stuck the earing in and things are fine so go for it. you people that wanna peirce your nose go ahead but tounge and bely button and nipples and all the other non mentionables get done by a professional even I'm not that stupid! Stick to the ears.

Hey I'm 13 and I got my lip pierced (right side) at a professional piercing place on
New Year's eve of this year and I took care of it right (cleaning and washing mouth out with Biotine before bed, after waking up and after eating) but last night I noticed alittle flab of skin on the inside of my mouth by the piercing.  It doesn't hurt and the outside of the piercing looks fine and doesn't hurt either.  Does anyone know what is it?  
BTW-I stopped using Biotine after the first month, and now to clean it I first use water on a Q-tip, then hydrogen peroixde on a Q-tip, then Bactine on a Q-tip.

Use a sewing needle not a safty pin. Don't take advise from any one that can't spell or use correct grammer.Hurting in any pericing is up to the person getting it. Do your reserch beforhand. You can peirce just about any where on your cartliage. Never use Alcohol, it isn't ment for internal use, use saline what ever. If your to wussy to do it your self just go to the damn pros.

this is to all the ppl who are looking for an alternative to using a safety pin. go down to the local walk in clinic or hospital and just grab a few sterile syringes they come in most of the popular gauges and they are most importantly STERILE so low risk in getting infected but thats just a suggestion no one needs to do this just thought i would put my word in

Hey guyz, i have both my ears pierced 2wice, and they've both been done by PROFFESSIONALS it's much safer and reduces the risk of infection and diesease. The first time i got my ears pierced i was 8 and it hurt HEAPS but i got my 2nd hole done when i was 13 and that was fine. Proffesionals know what they're doing and give u the right instructions to prevent infection etc. Have you ever heard of Hepatitis C? well you can die from it, and if you want to get this disease then go ahead and pierce yourself...

Piercing yourself is easy...
Im a chick I took the straight stick idea for my clit.
My ass on the other hand was different. I wanted to pierce my cheeks together so what I did was take a fork, doesn't need to be sterile, and i rammed it through my ass cheeks until it went through both, then slip a piece or rope through the hole on each cheek, and tie them tight together.  Leave it tied together for about 6-8 weeks, untie and slap a ring in there! Works like charm...Try it!

I have pierced my right ear and my left nipple with safety pins and had *no* complications. Here are some tips for how to pull this off:
-for the nipple
-Use medium sized nickle plated safety pins
-wash them with hot water and hydrogen peroxide
-Wipe the nipple with an alcohol wipe
-take a pin and *very* slowly drive it through horizontally toward your arm not your chest (which direction that is depends on which nipple you are piercing)
-make sure that it is horizontally straight while sliding it through
-Warning: The pain does not come till it is starting to force it's way out the other side.
-pull the pin through till the nipple is in the middle of the pins length and snap the pin shut.
-there should be no blood at all if done properly.
-apply one or more of the following medical aids often: Iodine, salt water, hydrogen peroxide, or triple anti-biotic cream.
-make sure at least 3 times a day you slide the pin back and fourth through the piecing to prevent fusion.
-always have the piercing covered with a band-aid for about 2-3 weeks.
-now you can finally place a 16-14g bar in!
    I hope this helps everyone out there... oh and all you people who frown upon this can go and waste your money while missing out on the fun of having your very *own* piecing. If you have any further questions let me know!

i am 14 years old.. when i was 12 i pierced my belly for the first time by myself with a needle.. it like healed within the first day but because im a stupid blonde i took it out.. in the last 2 years ive done my belly 8 times.. i recently did it again (the 8th time) and it again did the same thing.. healed like fully in the first day.. now i know it was stupid but hey, i got bored :P  
Now the piercers say like don't change it at all untill like .. 1-3 moonths go by however long it takes to heal.. i was changing mine like every 5 minutes.. the scary thing is.. i didnt have any scar tissue or scars at all from my belly.. is this like.. normal? i dont know if it is but hey.. atleast if i take it out again i'll still look hot in my bikini.. anyways laters...

OK First off, SAFETY PINS are stupid. They're nickel plated and they rust! And when you heat up the needle the nickel plate becomes weak, meaning it can go into your blood stream and cause serious problems.(which means you can get an disease from it, hint hint!)Do you even trust your friend that probably has the same intelligency as you, and you don't know how to do it? Most likely they don't really care as much if they hurt themselves. If someone says I do it all the time, what kind of person is he. One that does stupid stuff? Real smart. Don't buy your supplies on-line, there are a lot of freaks in this world that want to hurt you, specially off of EBAY! Just have an intelligent conversation with your parents and discuss to them how only kid on the block with them. They'll understand they were kids once before, trust me. Get it done right! By an professional who been doing it for a long time and is health inspected. You can get so many disease from one spec of blood from someone else.

excuse me.I'm new here and y'all seem to have made a lot of bad mistakes.Well,let me give you a little story of my own.Last month,I pierced my ear a second time,by myself,without sterilizing the needle,I know,it was really dumb,but I really wanted one,so...yeah.My mother didn't know,and she wanted to wait until I was older,and she's generally a very violent person,so I was reeeally afraid to tell her,but,I did,the day after I pierced my ear.I was taken aback by her reaction,she asked me if it hurt!She let me keep it,but she won't let me finish getting the piercings I want until I'm older!She said,if I had simply ASKED,she would have done ALL of them for my 13th birthday,which by the way was the week after I pierced my ear!!So,before any of y'all do anything stupid like I did,THINK.Don't end up like me.

hey yall, i peirced my ear all by myself. It does hurt if you do it slowly. I did mine slowly, it hurt like crazy. But your feelings go into sorta shock when your doing it. The first hole was really easy, but sticking the needle through the back was allitle painfull. But i recomend a hollow needle. The hollow needles are incredibley shape and they hurt less. Trust me on this on. I did one of my peircings with a sewing needle, and now i tried a hollow needle... not going back.. REMEBER KIDS... THE BLUNTER THE NEEDLE IS THE MORE ITS GOING TO HURT

By age 14, I had managed to pierce my ears a total of 5 times, three in my left ear, and two in my right ear, plus my two originals I had professionally done for a total of 7. The thing I like about the piercing on my right ear is that I did the two on top of each other, so those plus my professionally done one form a triangle. It looks really pretty with a dangle earring and two little diamond studs. I have a surface piercing and I’ve also attempted my bellybutton. I’ve never had any infection of any sort. I don’t even sterilize, clean, etc. I just push a safety pin through, wait a few days and then replace it with an earring. I’ve done my friends ears I can’t tell you how many times, and none have ever gotten infected. Maybe I have the magic touch…and maybe you shouldn’t take my advice... =)

i am sorry, but some people are c|umbasses.

but ya, i did my cart. my self, i used a sewing(machine) needle, not the best of things to do but better than a safety pin.  i did it once and let it heal over then re did it. second time i walked around school with the need in my ear. then put a 10 gauge in with ease. but if u realy are trying to hide it or trying to do it your self, try doin it in the shower with realy hot water. it will relax your body and things be easyer, plus u clean up right there, lol

I just tried to pierce my ear. It failed miserably. I froze it- sterilized the needle, and made sure it went through. I couldn't even feel it. Unfortunately after I let it sit, twisting it, etc. I tried to put the post in. It would not go through. I had lost the end of the hole. It went in halfway and stopped. I also realized that even if I were to get it through, the post would be entirely too tight. I punctured through the hole again. Bad idea. It still didn't work. NOW I understand. I have a headache, and for no gain. Just get it professionally done. They are trained for it. The bad part is, I have to wait for the hole to heal before I can get it done at a piercing parlor. So stupid of me. Take it from someone with experience. If you can't afford to get it done, don't do it. If your parents are opposed, don't do it. Be smart about it, and most importantly, especially if you have fat earlobes, at least have a friend  around to help you out.

ITS OK to pierce ur own ear, i pierced my ear with a safety pin 3 times, and i just did it a 4th time like half an hour ago, i just held a lighter over the safety pin to steralize it, than pushed it through, then dabbed alcohal over it with a cutip, and my friend pierced his own lip and eyebrow, and his friends lip, i do not suggest piercing ur nipples or belly button or anything else by urself, and EXPECIALLY not ur tounge because it has major veins in it that can make u bleed to death or go to the hospital

Hey kids, I would suggest not piercing anything yourself but hell i did it and all my piercings are fine, If you want to Pierce your cartilage Get a safety pin Numb your ear with ice(wait like 5 minutes)shove the safety pin through and then take it out as soon as you get it in there, It worked for me i pierced all my ears(15 piercing in total) by myself, Make sure you align right or it will totally screw the whole thing up. I also pierced my stomach by myself the best way i can think of doing it would be to get a safety pin (again)make it so its about a half inch for some people from the edge of the bellybutton and then shove it threw, after that remove it again put some antibacterial stuff on it and shove the other stomach ring through.  Well happy piercing hopefully it helps although i would go to a professional

I've pierced both my ears all the way up and my nose, by myself. I use piercing earings (the kind with a sharp end that you use with a gun) mark where I want the hole with pen, disinfect my hands, earing and ear with Barbacide, a hospital grade disinfectant, then push the earing straight through without numbing. It hurts less than a gun. I've never had one problem with my nose or ears, because I made sure to use a proper disinfectant and keep the area clean with hydrogen peroxide. I'd only recommend doing your ears and nose by yourself though, anything else could lead to infection. And you MUST use some kind of disinfectant. And I seriously advise against the whole safety pin thing. Using a regular needle may work, but I think the piercing earing hurts less, and once it goes through it stays there.

First off I think you're all over reacting. Piercing your ears yourself, is no biggy. Just ice it and use a thumb tack. And safety pins can be good for piercing, but not necessarily leaving in. I pierced my smiley ((skin under my lip)) with on and had no regrets. My friends piercing everything themselves, including their web, belly button, ears, lip, eyebrow, and a surface hip piercing. Keep it clean and there's nothing to worry about. Just make sure whatever you pierce and what you pierce it with will leave a hole big enough for the earring, bar or whatever will go in it after.

I think some of you should just go get it done by a piercing gun,or you should just take your earring and push it threw your ear.I do not think you need a safety pin that is not necessary.Or you can just ask an adult that you live with (mother or father) if they know anybody that know how to do piercing.You could just go out the house and get it done with your friends.Thats what I think kids should do if they are to young to get a body part done.

ok so i have 3 peircings in each ear, just on the lobe,4 of them i did myself and it was nothing...now i wanna do my cartilage but I'm scared its guna hurt..but whatever my friend did it so i can.but here for ppl that wanna pierce their own ear lobes-safety pins are fine to use and this is what u do: mark ur ear where u want them and make sure its even on both sides,get a safety pin burn it and sterilize it with antiseptic,put ice on ur ear to numb it(i skipped that part cuz idk i just did and it was fine)and put the needle in ur ear as fast as u can,it hurts less.just press rele hard and it pretty much just feels really hot, it dosnt hurt.once u get then needle in move it back and forth some and keep it in for 10 min.the hardest part i think is getting the earing in-take the needle out and get a GOLD earing(if its silver or some grose metal it will totally infect it.)put the earing in, it might be hard bc sometimes it dosnt go thru easily,if not try stretching ur ear lobe out while putting it in, and dont push so hard that it makes another hole. but dont worry it wil probably go in fine. after u got them in,put some sorta antiseptic to them and twist them around,keep doing this at lest 3 times a day for a few weeks.they might get infected a little which happened to me but its not that bad it will go away in like 4 days just deal with it it works out great in the end.GOOD LUCK!

I have pierced my ear lobes twice and my eyebrow and lip. I have pierced my brothers ears and gauged them. I piecered my friends cartalige and her lip. All of them turned out fine. I used a sewing needle and sterilzed them. If you don't sterilize the needle it is not safe. I wouldn't recommend piercing yourself unless you have done research. One of my friends pierced her own lip and she put it in the wrong spot and it got infected. You must make sure you know what you're doing.

I don't recommend doing anything other than your ears yourself. I have 4 piercings in each of my ears. I've done all of them myself besides the first set. I personally did it with the actual earring. I numbed my ear with ice so that I couldn't feel my ear AT ALL and I sharpened the earring with a nail file, and stuck it though. I felt NOTHING at all. Make sure you clean your ear with rubbing alcohol as well as the earring once you're done sharpening it. If you don't, you're at risk of TONS of harmful diseases. But do as you please, we can't tell you what to do. JUST BE SMART.

Okay well I'm 14 and i only had one piercing on each ear. I wanted more (just 3 on each) and my parents are really strict. So of course, they wouldn't't let me get it done. Being the rebel that i am, i did it on my own. These are the simple steps:
1. Get everything prepared - surgical steel earrings, Epsom salt, boiling water,ice, a small towel rubbing alcohol, a safety pin, cu-tips, an apple, and a cotton ball.
2. take a pinch of Epsom salt and dissolve it into a small bowl
3. disinfect your ear by taking the cotton ball drenched in the Epsom salt and rub it in
4. take 2 ice cubes and put one under your ear and one over, then squeeze with the small towel (not too hard) hold it there for about 10 minutes until your ear goes numb
5. quickly take the cu-tip drenched in rubbing alcohol and disinfect your ear
6. then while holding a half of an apple underneath your ear, take the safety pin put it on the spot, and count to 3 then push it in
7. if your ear is numb you wont feel a thing
8. then keep the pin in for 5 minutes
9. take it out, and put the earring in (this might hurt just a little bit)
10. do the same to your next ear
11. then disinfect your ears with cu-tips and rubbing alcohol everyday for it not to get infected

I promise this process wont hurt. If done correctly, your ears wont get infected. Have fun.. and for girls.. to keep your parents from knowing, keep your hair down and if they catch a glimpse of your ears tell them its stick-ons.. it worked for me!

i did one in my ear cartilage...simply drown your needle,safety pin,or stud <i used a stud earring,i ended up losing the hole i made with safety pin that i did first..don't ask..i am just that talented.> put ice on your ear,wait ten minutes until it's numb and shove the sterilized needle,safety pin,or stud through..
make sure you wait ten or fifteen minutes with the pin or needle in your ear before you put in the stud.
then,clean it every day for the next couple of weeks with rubbing alcohol or whatever you want..

if you want to get something fancy done like tongue,belly button or boob rings,go to a professional.you won't regret it.

Make sure if you bout to pierce your ear by yourself that you aren't affraid of blood or needles otherwise u will get a scar cuz you will back off half way through it, have your friends or a professional do it unless you wanna end up wit sideways piercins n your ears lookin messed up.  If your piercin anything make sure it is safe and u wash the needle and put it in some kind of cleanser

I have pierced my own ear 5 times now and i dont regret any of it (apart from 1 time wen i got an infection and had to take it out) but then i just w8ed 4 it 2 heal n pierced it again. take my advise and ONLY pirce your ear lobe- not any other part of your body. my m8 tried piercing her cartilidge and nearly ended up paralysed as there is a nerve in the ear which, when hit, will paralyse. all i did to pierce my ear lobe was push an earing through it. 3 of the piercings that i did myself are now in and fully healed. good luck :)

If you want to pierce something i suggest only doing your ears yourself. It's way easy.. kinda painful but the end result is awsome. I'm 13 and i did my second holes and I'm trying to convince my friend to let me do my top ear (cause I'm at her house)... I say if your serious enough to read up on it do it!!

Never use a safety pin. If you're piercing anything use a sterile hollow needle. If it is your catilage use a 18 or 16 gauge and it will cut a hole rather than crush through it and stretch it like a safety pin does, which makes it heal much quicker and reduces the risk of infection. Though it isn't advised to do any yourself because whether you get the hole or not it is rather difficult to get it totally straight so you might be rather displeased with the result.

Okay, I pierced the top of my ear 7/8/05 thats like 4 days ago. I used a safety pin and it took me a while to get it through b/c i wasnt sure if I should do it. I sterilized the pin under a flame & slowly put it through ( i was to scared to put it through fast) It didnt hurt too bad, but its a lot easier if you can just accept the pain and not fight it. Ice doesnt really numb your ear but it feels great afterwards. It will kinda hurt the first few days when you touch it but now its so much better.

Hey.... if anyones reading this, you all JUST DO IT! Pierce anything you want! Sure, it'll get infected, seriously, whos ever had a piercing that hasnt been infected? so what your young, you only live once, so what that your parents dont like it, they'll deal with it, its YOUR body. YOUR decision. Hell, i have 6 earrings in all and Im piercing my cartilage by myself, i want it, and im not gonna let my parents stop me. Why should you? You only live once, so just DO IT!!! Just be sure to clean it, and sterilize everything. But if it does get an infection, it will only last a week or two. What the hell, might as well :)

Hey everyone. I do agree that you should go to someone who knows what they are doing.But all that mumbo jumbo about piercing your own body parts and dying is not true.First off,I have a friend who pierces and is a medic.You can have your ear,nose toungue chopped off and you will not die.Your cartlidge isnt any harder to pierce then your lobe,It just takes a bit longer to heal. I have four children...all boys,and I have pierced thier ears multiple times.I just did my moms last weekend.Im not saying go stab yourself with needles,But if you are gonna do it,Make sure to use a gun. You can buy a piercing gun at any sallys beauty supply store. I paid $50.00 for mine,and it came with 6 pair of earings,and all the stuff I need to sterilize!!Dont listen to anyone who tells you that you can bleed to death or die from a piercing. The only way you would die is by using a needle that someone with a bad disease like AIDS used.
I am 33 years old. I have had my eyebrow,nose,tongue,lip and belly button all pierced.My nose and ears I just did myself.But all the other stuff I had done by a professional.
Have fun and explore your options.Just remember you can remove jewelry,you cant remove tattoos...they are nice at first,But when you want them gone,they aint goin anywhere!!!
Have fun kids!!

Hey I'm Hannah,i have been piercing peoples ears and belly buttons for like 4 years.
I started with safety pins, but 4 out of 5 people got infections so i bought
pro piercing needles and they were so much easyer to get through and so much safer.
When piercing your ears take a fine point maker and mark the spot you are going to puncture then put ice or a numbing agent on it then swiftly stick the needle through.
the faster and harder the better in most cases.

I have 4 earrings in both ears,and i did 2 myself,and my friends or my friends friends come to me to get it done.

Belly buttons are harder,you need a 14g needle and a 14g barbell or banana bell.
you will also need pliers and a
numbing agent(optinal)
take the pliers and pull the skin your are going to puncture up mark where  you are going to puncture and stick the needle through fast .DO NOT GENTLY PUSH IT THROUGH!!!
That will only make it hurt worse.
after you get it through keep the needle in for 5 min then put your ring through.
also
IMPORTANT!!!
USE RUBBING ALCOHOL ON
EVERYTHING!!!! YOU ARE GOING TO TOUCH.
"earrings ,skin, etc.....
um
"lower " piercing are best done with professionals.
and tongues are extremely dangerous to do by yourself because of main vains and
muscles that run through your tongue!

Hope i help

to all your guys piercin yuselves.. its not all that hard. and mayeb not as dangerous as people like to say if u kno what ur doing and have the balls to do it. i pierced my own eyebrow,tongue,cartalige,bellybutton, and 7 holes in my ears, oh..and my nose.  ive also pierced numerous peoples body parts. im not a doctor or a surgeon.(sp?). im basically a kid. piercing your own tongue should only b done when there someone else around. and done from the bottom up. doesnt hurt until after  a few minutes. cartalige..sikening. belly button..easiest one i did. nose..painful but pretty easy (i used a starter earring). just mark the spot u want and brace urself. then..pierce. tongue should only b done with piercing tongs and real piercing needles-NEW ones. nipples hurt like all hell. b very careful with them. if ur piercing gets a little infected...u dont hav to take it out right away. u can just put some hydrogen peroxide on it and even if its a tongue ring (u gargle it...its nasty). and do that continuously fer a couple days. if it gets worse.. then u may consider taking it out or figuring out if ur allergic to that metal.
never use too much peroxide or rubbing alch. cause it will kill some good bacteria needed to heal and it will dry it out and leave it vulnerable.
ok.. yeah.. loooong entry and random thigs i hope might help some people. i have a piercing to do right now for someone.. so good luck everyone.

Me and my friend just pierced our ears {3rd set} just today when we had a sleep over. We starilized our equitment, safty pin, earings. We burned the tips of our earings and boiled them and did the same with the safty pin. My friend did one of her ears first. She started at 12:00 a.m. and ended at 1:30 a.m. We waited fifteen minuets and she put in her earing then I went. It hurt SO MUCH! We tried to numb our ears but our ears weren't numb for long. You would think it would be quick but it wasn't. Mine took a half an hour. Then I waited fifteen minuets and put my earing in. We did this to our other ears too and we finally finished at 4:00 in the morning. It hurt a lot but it was SOOO worth it. IM me at kitty20038 if you need help. I will write if my ear get infected, I am only 13 tho so what hurts me might not hurt you.

LISTEN 2 ME PPLZ! i have advice that you can trust, about piercings.
when i was 12 i got my first holes in my ears done at H. samuels, the stupid woman did them wonky. I pierced my second holes myself, using a pin off my my notice board-dumb i know. I didn't even sterilize the pin. But i did numb the lobe and i marked on where i wanted the piercing so they were both even. And it didn't hurt a bit. My ears have never gotten infected, and NO REGRETS! piercing your lobes is fine, as long as you clean them and STERILIZE the piercing instrument. AS LONG AS YOU DONT USE SAFETY PINS! well you can, but they r kinda crappy and you'll probs get an infection. ANYWAY- i don't advise that you pierce your belly button, tongue, brow, nipple, or lip yourself-i tried to pierce my navel and failed and now i have a scar. plus it hurts. ALSO there is a high chance that you could pierce internal organs, or get a nasty infection. But hey, do what ye want. FINALLY>>>>i want to do the top of my ear but that is cartilage- and I'm kinda unsure. But i think i'mgoing to go for it! If you need anyone to talk to about pirecings, my msn address is billybob_n_ruben@hotmail.co.uk

I would not recommend piercing yourself under many circumstances. I myself have my nipples, a Christina, 4 in each ear, and a beauty spot. If you truly, absolutely must pierce yourself, do lots of research. Get the proper equipment. (Hollow hypodermic needles, recommended 12 or 14 ga., and Emla cream can be found on Ebay.)

And a safety pin, whether "sterilized" or not, is never a good idea.

hey im 15 and i have pierced my CARTLIAGE it only hurts a little bit! but i did it  last nite and the only reason i did it was because i got on here and read all the things sum of yaw put... those of u hoo sed it hurt... it didnt hurt at all yaw r drama queens and if u cant stand that lil sting that u feel after u stick the needle in through the 1st layer of skin i feel sry for yaw... becuh i hate needles and it didnt hurt one bit!!! it took about a hour but ima leave the step of wat i did for sum one to come along and have these guidlines to look for i SWEAR itll only hurt if u hit it on sumthin so be extra careful!!!
cartliage piercing:
*get a sterile needle (i used a hospital needle but u can use a regular needle too)
*sterilize it by putting it in rubbing alcohol for 30 minutes)
*then u numb ur ear wid ice for 20 miutes
*u hafta be quick or the feelin will come baq in ur ear and ull hafta do wat i did and stop so u can renumb it
* get a highlight and mark 6 cm frum the side of ur head to the corner of ur ear
* then stick the needle through after uve dun that u leave the needle in for 5 minutes then u put a earring in it *ta da!* ur dun*
~!~ reminder go to wal mart or clairs and git sum ear care solution believe me its helpful~!~
  O YEA WHEN U BREAK IT TO UR PARENTS TELL THEM U LOVE THEM VERY MUCH AND U MIGHT HAVE DUN SUMTHIN CRAZY BUT... O YEA BREAK IT TO UR MOM 1st SHE'LL HANDLE IT BETTER I PROMISE   :)

I pierced my second holes and my third holes (which one is my lower cartilage and the other in under the cartilage area). Piercing yourself is a dumb idea unless you do your research. Piercing after a certain area on your cartilage, if it gets infected, you'll get what they call "cauliflower ear" and you have to get it laced, in other words, you have to get it lasered and drained. I hear it's extremely painful. But I used a thumbtack, which isn't too smart, you should use piercing needles, as they are the safest. NEVER, in a million years, use a safety pin. You have a bigger chance of an infection. After you pierce your ears, if it feels somewhat numb, usually that's normal. Just like if you fell and hit your knee and it hurt but it went numb after a while; you shoved a sharp object through your skin, it's going to hurt. Clean it afterward, not with Peroxide. That's a bad choice. If you do your ears, you can go to like the mall (where they do free ear piercing if you buy the earrings) and buy their ear care solution. It only costs like 3 bucks or sumthin like that. But many of you are saying that you aren't allowed to get sumthin pierced until you are 18; act more responsible and your parents may see that you are responsible and could take care of sumthin like that. Or, if they still won't let you, if you want it that bad, you'll wait. But your best luck with your ears is getting them done at the mall or somewhere where they use the ear piercing gun; it's extremely quick and a lot less painful. When you pierce your own ears, you have to shove a needle through each layer of your ear, it's 15x painful than letting someone put the ear piercing gun to your ear and press a button. If you want it that bad but don't want to get it done that way, they sell ear piercing guns and they're only like 20 bucks. As for the tongue and belly button and stuff, that's extremely stupid to do on your own; if you do it any way wrong, you could kill yourself; and is a piercing really worth your life? Come on now...Plus you shouldn't get either of them pierced until after you are 18, since your body will stop growing around then, and if you pierce either of those before that, then it'll all go wrong since both your tongue and your stomach area grow and the piercing won't grow with your body. My niece's friend pierced her belly button and it got extremely infected for these reasons mainly: She did it wrong, she pierced it too far in; She used a safety pin; She kept taking it in and out so her parents wouldn't find out; and she kept changing the earring she had in it. She never had it gauged to put a navel ring in it, she used earrings, BIG mistake. But as most of you probably haven't read this far, I'll go now, and good luck with all you are doing and be safe!

My god peeps, If your going to pierce your ears make sure you do the whole 9 yards, Buy your sterilized needles, or buy a piercing gun. Wouldn't you rather buy clean stuff rather than look at the consequences??
that goes for any other part of your body you are piercing, learn how to do it first, watch some people getting it done by the professionals before you try it yourself!!!... hope this helps!!

Anyone who wants to pierce, as was mentioned before, piercing ears and nose is pretty safe--anything else might be considered taking a risk. I've heard stories about people getting facial paralyzation from piercing their lips or noses with safety pins.
i as one, would no recommend piercing cartlidge by oneself. I would get that done for i am not familiar with the bone up there.
but ive pierced my nose nostril, septum, lip and all came out well.

Look. I wanted my bell button done for a long time but my parents said no not till I was 18. I turned 18 and i got it done on my birthday. It hurt really bad but whent really fast. Doing it yourself is extremly dandergious because there are veigns and arteries and if you hit one you could bleed to death in a very short period of time. Plus in piercing the cartilage of you upper ear yourself you could hit the central nerve that makes your eye lids open and close or like I said with the belly button earlyer, a veign or an artery. Getting these done prefesionaly is so much safer and easyer. Don't be a jack ass and do it yourself.

Take it from someone with experience. I self-pierced my ears about 10 times with nothing less than a sterilized safety pin, ice, and an earring. Make sure you wash your hands before you do this. Hold the safety pin over fire so it kills all the bad bacteria. Hold ice on your ear until your ear is completely numb and then just shove the safety pin through. Leave the pin in for 15 minutes or so, take it out and put the earring in. It's a simple as that.

I REALLY ADVISE FOR YOU NOT TO PIERCE ANY OTHER BODY PARTS BESIDES YOUR EAR OR MAYBE YOUR NOSE. If you try to pierce your navel or your eyebrow or your labret or whatever, you may hit a major vein and really be screwed. It's not really a life or death matter like people make it seem, but who the hell wants all those nasty scars? Just take my advice.

Okay, listen you guys, you can't just jab a saftey pin through your body, it is the least safe thing you can do besides doing it with a barbeque fork... I tried several times to pierce my ears with a needle until  I realized the hole was waaay too small for an earing.I originally got my left ear pieced by a prof. and freaked (this is when I was 8) 8 years later still no right hole. So I went to get it prof done... they put a special ear piercing earing in my already hole to try to mark the other level to it. I freaked out and left. I had to by the earings but it was okay. I figured... I have pierced my ears so many times before this time it will be successful. So I went home, and jabbe dit through my ear! It worked... I still have that hole. But I wanted two more on each ear. So what I did was went to the local Walmart... yes... walmart. And much to my relief and astonishment they sold earpiercing kits. They sold everything but the gun a grand total of 8 dollars! It came with the thing to put in the gun (which I didn't need since I didn't have a gun) special ear wipes, special earings, and a dissinfectant to put on it every night. I lost one of the earings. But up until today I had 3 holes in my right ear and 2 in my left. I got bored right now, wrote an away message saying I was piercing my ear and went into the bathroom took the special earpiercing earing and stabed it through my ear. I don't think it looks perfect but that is the drawback of doing it your self... it still feels warm but all is good. I also did disinfect it! So do yourself a favor, if piercing your own ear, please invest 8 dollars in your health and buy a kit... also a way I learned to convince my mom to let me do something (to all of you that want to get something done prof and your parents won't let you) I researched and printed facts on to post it notes and stuck them everywhere in the house... The one that got my mother was on the screen of her laptop she opened it and there it was... Also you can write something as a screen saver. I also wrote an essay for a reason totally different (please only use these scams once per person because the parents will figure them out...) and I wrote facts, why I wanted said thing (dying hair ( I was 10)). The other one, the post it notes works especially well since my mom said NO MORE ANIMALS. I did that and she got me two turtles! Also my teacher reccomended that one for me, it worked on her for her daughter getting her ears pierced. Also say that you will prove you are mature. Most parents think that getting your bellybutton pierced is done for sexual reasons, show them that is not true and you just want some new things going on... nothing sexual!

I really hope this helps!

If you have anything else you want answered I will try to remember to come back here but I may forget so please feel free to email me!

Okay I pierced my own second hole...for a present to myself for turning 16...around 1 am lol...anyways...
I used a long needle...
And soaked both that and my earrings in it...
Yes it did hurt...but not that bad...the only reason why it hurt was because I was watching myself stick a needle in my own ear...so it was just my mind...anyways...I kept the needle in my ear for 10 mins continuously turning it..then I took it out and put my earing in..and did the same to the other ear...

Today I tried piercing my cartilage but I couldn't get the need all the way through cause I kept phcying my self out...I have a friend that works at Clair's and she said she would do it for me..but I don't want to pay $20 so I am probally going to go to sallys and by an ear peircer...and then let my friends use it...but if you are going to share those make sure you sterilize it!!...

Happy piercing!!

you ladies and gents scare me.I can't change a parents mind about piercing for you.  Perhaps the more mature that you get, the more that they might relent on letting you get pierced.  What I do know is that for every successful home done piercing, there are 40 disasters.  I know, I hear them all the time.  Anyway enough of that, forget about your ruining the appearance of different body parts with an inept piercing.  The scariest things that I am reading here, are the fact that you keep talking about sterilizing your pins or needles and jewelry and skin; when you obviously know nothing about it.  U CANNOT STERILIZE ANYTHING BY WASHING IT OR SCRUBBING IT OR SOAKING IT IN ANYTHING - NOT PEROXIDE - NOT ALCOHOL - NOT ANTIBACTERIAL SOAP- NOT BOILING WATER - NOT ANYTHING.  That is the reason so many home done piercings get infected.  There is only one reliable way to sterilize equipment for piercing, tattooing, medical procedures, surgery, or anything else for that matter.  This is accomplished by using an autoclave.  An autoclave works similar to a pressure cooker.  Clean tools, instruments, needles, even corks, are placed inside.  The autoclave then raises the temp and the pressure inside to a level that you cannot accomplish by any of the methods you are using. Since u all seem to have computers, read up on bloodborne pathogens before your next piercing party.  The reason you have so many scars or piercings that just don't look quite right is because you don't have proper tools; so you put the body part that you are trying to pierce through too much trama and stress during the process. Also , you don't have the proper knowledge of your nervous and circulatory systems.  In other words, where your nerves and your blood vessels lie under the skin.  For instance, there are blood vessels in the tongue, that, if they are accidentally pierced will bleed so badly, that you can suffer EXTREME BLOOD LOSS AND MUST SEEK MEDICAL HELP IMMEDIATELY.  Ladies, if you wish to always have good sex and great orgasms, DO NOT ATTEMPT TO PIERCE EACH OTHERS' CLITORIS OR HOOD.  Even if you have been successful before, they are not all alike.  Everybody's different.  YOU CAN MAIM EACH OTHER FOR LIFE.  IF THIS PIERCING IS DONE INCORRECTLY, OR, WITHOUT THE PROPER JEWELRY, YOU CAN CAUSE SOMEONE TO NEVER BE ABLE TO HAVE AN ORGASM AGAIN.  I know you guys are smart.  You just don't have access to the proper information.  No reputable piercer will pierce anyone's genitals under 18 years old. There are lots of things that you can spend your time doing to have fun.  Wait to get the piercings done safely.  Some people that call themselves piercers don't know what they are doing either.  Educate yourself first, then pick a piercer, based on what u know, not just because their shop is convenient.

hey dudes um i wouldnt really advise you to pierce yourself except for your ears i meen if you wanna do them yourself feel free but use clean stuff alright ...BUT use something thick saftey pin is to thin so it would be good to buy hollow needles im a profesional piercer and its mad fun if you have the right stuff and a hollow needle is only like a buck for 5 were i work just dont do anything else yourself you would be surprised people have died from piercing themselfs and thats a shame so think safe kiddies if you have any questions just add me retard_192@hotmail.com and plz be careful and get profesional help you could hit a nerve or vien and  paralyze yourself

           Hi this is Leah,
I got my ears pierced at seven. Then I got mine again at nine. But to let you know I didn't pierce it myself. The first piercing was the gun the second one was what I call a staple because they put the earring inside and they slam it on your ear. Now I change my earrings a lot because there double pierced and I love it!!!!!!!!!!!

Hay...umm my friend pierced her own ears, all she did was take an earing and put it through and left it like that and its looks really good and hasnt got infected so far. She now has 6 piercings. Is it safe to do it like that? I wanna try it but i know my mom will probably take me to get it done professionally but for some reason i think i would feel more comfortable doing it myself...I got my ears pierced already(one in each ear)when i was a baby and i got it done professionally but i used to have this thing when i could only wear gold earings or my ears would get infected i can wear normal earings now but i dont have any gold earings right now and i think if i do it with normal ones my ear might get infected...any advice?

your not going to die from piercing your own ears...or be paralyzed...or anything...chances are you will get some sort of pain or infection though. Safety pins...not a good idea. The dont "pierce" instead they push to the side all the tissue...yum...just wait...you wont die...but whatever...if you want to be idiots...go for it

I pierced my nipples when I was sixteen now I'm 23 and a lot smarter. But it worked I put a safety pin in some alcohol for a while numbed up my nipple with an ice cube and just stuck the safety pin through. Just so you know no matter how much ice you use it hurts like crap. I did the same to the other one and left the safety pins in making sure to keep them really clean and change out the pins every day. I also pulled on them to stretch out the holes until I could fit a nipple ring in but I'd highly recommend using a barbell and once its in leave it in until its healed using saline (like for contacts) to rinse off the crust that will come with all piercings. I've also pierced my ears using a sterile piercing needle from ebay it came completely sealed from a piercer and he has cheap jewelry too.

Heya, I am 13 and i have pierced my tongue twice and my bellybutton 4 or 5 times.
  I didn't really like my bellybutton ring so I moved on to my tongue this was about 3 weeks ago i didn't get an infection or anything it bled a little but not a lot It hurt less than biting your tongue the worst part of it is getting through the last layer of skin .Here is what I did:
1)I checked to make sure my tongue was PIERCABLE this means if you have a vein in the middle of your tongue STOP NOW YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO GET IT PIERCED ANYWHERE YOU WILL BLEED TO DEATH now that i have made myself clear we will move on to step 2
2)I washed my mouth out and brushed it the same with the needle and ring
3)I proceeded with my piercing I stuck out my tongue as far as i could and bit down for about 10 seconds before I started putting the HOLLOW sowing needle in I went slow admiring my work you may not want to but it is best and you will drool uncontrollably do not swallow this spit let it go out of your mouth (it is embarrassing but if you swallow it will mess your piercing up)
4)I left the needle in for about 5 minutes and then i put  a regular earing for next couple of days so i could get used to having something in my mouth then i put a tongue ring in no infection.
5)I wash my mouth out with mouth rinse every time i eat drink etc.
6) You will to if you decide to do this

Ok ive pierced my ears many times and they keep getting infected i dont get it i sterilize all the equipment, i dont know how u guys can use safety pins i did that one time and it got infected,

my mom told me when she was 16 she got her ears pierced and a friend did it for her, she took a big needle, with thread at the end and stuck it through, and tie the thread in a hoop , everyday she had to pull the thread up and down, after cleaning it with achohol, and she waited like 3 months to put earings in.  

This is what my mom told me but i guess this lady knew what she was doin...

hey evryone..Iwhen i was little my mom took me to get my first set of holes in my ears pierced. But like..3 months ago, i pierced the second holes by myself. this how i did it.
1) I poured some alchohol in the cap of the bottle and set a safety pin in it for like 5 minutes.

2) While the safety pin was "sterilizing", i got an ice cube and let it melt on my ears. I melted half of the ice cube on the front side of my ear, and the other half of it on the back of my ear. I did this so it would be numb.

3) Then i cut an apple (or any piece of fruit--cantalop,grapes..etc.), and i put the piece of the apple behind my ear, while i took the safety pin and pushed it through as hard as i could.

It didnt hurt at ALL, and it only took about 2 seconds.

4)When i got done i kept the safety pin sitting in my ear for about 5 minutes, whil ei poured some more alchohol into the bottle cap, and "sterilized" it.

5) After 5 minutes, I took the earing and quickly removed the safety pin from my ear and slid the earing right through. but i recommend using studs for the first couple of months.

Hope this helps any questions bout that! xoxo-nikki-

ok i pierced my own ear about a month ago. wut i did was take a sewing needle, a 16 gauge barbell and a paper cup of rubbing alcohol. first i put the needle and the barbell in the cup. Then, i cleened my earlobe ON BOTH SIDES with alcohol. i stuck the needle through. it doesnt hurt that much, but u do feel it going through. make sure it goes in straight, like other peoples', other wise take the needle out and try it a few days later. if its straight take the neele out and stick your earing through. try to do it in one shot, because sometime it goes through halfway and than u cant find the rest of the hole. it will bleed alittle, but not alot.

for the first week, it will puss and you need to disinfect it every few hours. i made the mistake of taking it out, dont do it atleast for a month! clean it off on both sides with alcohol, peroxide or something alse every day for that time period.

once it heals, if u want a bigger gauge, make sure it the next biggest, dont go from a 16 to 10, you'll cause too much tearing to your ear.

happy piercing!

I got my ears pierced 4 times professionally and and last night I decided to pierce my 5th hole myself. All I did was soak the earring in hydrogen perioxide and put it in. Its really hard getting it in, or making a surface hole and its a bit painful-but after that, it doesn't hurt that bad and it goes through smoothly. But don't pop it. Do it slowly and put something like an apple slice behind your ear- its a lot less painful.

So far, my ear is fine. But I'm waiting until Thursday to pierce my other one. Its really not that painful. And I find it ironic because it hurts less then when I got it done professionally.

Heyy you guys r all so stupid because for one its better to touch your earing and turn it so it won't adhere to the skin! I just did mine two days ago its fine and I am totally happy with it.
   PLEASE you guys if  you really want your cartilagfe done DO IT its fine get permission  though because your parents  need to know....
  Oh and secondly by a peircing earing but by yourslef when you do it it sounds so nasty... BUT STILL its way worth it and everyone I know that had it done by a pro got infected and me and my TWO BFFL'skassii and Manduh have theirs done bythemselves.
     LOVE Always Korrah May..........
