|ok, here are the answers for the most asked questions for all of u who want ur belly button pierced:
Q*Does it hurt?
A*For most people it doesnt hurt, but it depends on ur tolerance for pain-tip:pinch ur bellybutton (hard) and thats about how much it will hurt.
Q*Whats a good place to do it?
A*Look in ur local yellow pages or on www.yellowpages.com (ur zipcode or city) under 'tattoo' or 'body piercing', ask your friends or even strangers where they got theirs.
Q*How much does it cost?
A*Anywhere from $20-$50, but remember, u get wut u pay for.Call a tattoo shop and ask them...
Q*Can i swim after i get it?
A*NO!! Wait for it to heal. Best to get it done in the fall, when u dont really swim alot. And if u do swim, WAS IT RIGHT AFTER U GET OUT OF THE WATER. The salt water in the ocean is good to healing, but the bacteria will give u an infection, and its not the chlorine thats bad (it only dries it out a little), its the bacteria from peoples bodies in the pool that will infect ur belly piercing.
Q*How old do u have to be?
A*18 to do it without parents, 16 or older with a note from them, and anything under that u need ur mom or dad to go with u.
Q*Does it hurt more if ur chubby?
A*Yes, u have more to pierce through, but keep in mind, no1 wants to see a fat stomach, so dont show it off until u start working out.
Q*How big is the needle?
A*The needle is about the same length as a normal needle, but it is thicker and hollow. Your piercer MUST use disposable needles for everyone, ask before u get it done, if they use one for alot of people, RUN! they should open the pouch infront of u.
Q*How do they do it?
A*Go to www.tribalectic.com/PiercingVideos.asp
to see the various piercings and how they do them, (its a video). Basically, they make u lay down, steralize your belly, some numb it , others dont, they clamp it (doesnt hurt) and stick the needle through. then they pull the needle out gently as they guide the ring or barbell in. befor all this though, they mark the area and ask if thats good, dont be scared to say its too high or too low, ITS YOUR BODY, YOUR CHOICE.
