this is how i heard how to pierce it- take a safety pin and push it through and then put a belly button earing in and then gradually get it up to a 14g cause that is the normal size

DO NOT pierce it with a safety pin. The safety pin can actually begin to deteriorate (decompose) inside your stomach. Get a piercing kit, you can buy them online or probably some where by you. 24 is kind of big, they standard size is 14 gauge. When you get the kit, it comes with a clamp, so it's a lot easier to pull the skin out and pierce it then have to hold it while you pierce it with a safety pin. Plus, when you get the kit, everything is pre-sanitized. Your choice though. I know people who have done it with a safety, and it turned out great. Others have done it and it got so infected they had to take it out. I would say just go and get it done some place where they know what they're doing. You can make the hole above your belly button (the flap of skin) or below which is called an inverse navel (the flap of skin under your belly button.) The top navel is the most common piercing :~)

Don't pierce it at home unless you're really experienced with body mods! Even with the kits, it's really hard to create a properly sterile environment at home. It's definitely worth it to go to a professional - getting an infection really sucks, and badly placed jewelry is also a pain.

unless ur into all those disgusting infections, then go ahead and pierce ur self... but if u want a good piercing that wont get infected, then do ur research and find a GOOD, REPUTABLE place thats CLEAN... if its not clean, then leave, gettin an infection is not pretty and hurts REALLY bad

hi guys if u want to pierce your own bellys its a good idea to get a hyperdermic needle or a iv drip with cannulas,these are hollow and will push out the skin rather than squessing a solid object through. also clamps would be a good idea if u can get one where possible try looking on ebay for pennigton's or forresters clamps,these are like the ones in the piercing shops.

not only will they aid the needle going in,they will hold the required ammount of skin,work as a target and also block of some of the blood supply causing less bleeding and pain.

as to freezing there isnt really much point because anyhting used on external will only freeze the skin on the outside the best method to use would be do it as quickly as possible,providing ur on target,and pierce as u exale.

as for sterilizing the best method would be with out an autoclave would be place your jewellery and clamps in a dilutted bleach solution then place them in a boling pan,because a little sterilization is better tahn none.

also one more thing use a none toxic felt tip pen to mark off ur piercing on either side,otherwise u may end up with to much skin to pierce or a wonky piercing.

Remember if your fortunate enough to get the hollow needles make sure they come in there pre stearilized pack also use idealing a 14ga and using a 16ga jewellery so that ur able to move the jewellery afterwards and aids healing.

a great site for tools if ur able to buy online is http://www.mrpiercing.com happy piercing and be carefull

u guys dont pierce ur bb with a saftey pin or a sewing needle its not the right kind of metal and its very bad for the inside of u. get a piercing needle. i have mine professionally done and i suggest u do this 2 cuz juss because u pierced it right doesnt mean that it wont get infected it usually depends on how well u take care of it after so juss cuz its not infected the next day doesnt mean it wont still get infected. but i still suggest u get it professionally done because if u do it wrong and it leaves a scar u wont be able 2 get it professionally done because its scar tissue.

I've pierced my bellybutton twice (standard and inverse). They both turned out great, you jsut have to know what your doing. Don't use a safety pin, it's too small and most likely will get infected. Get an industrial needle (used for piercings) if at all possible. Find someone who's 18 to go to a professional piercing place or a doctor and get one, or if you have to steal your parents credit card and order one (it's better than getting an infection, belive me) make sure you clean everything and have good jewelry, AND TAKE CARE OF IT AFTER YOU PIERCE IT!!!! (sea salt soaks and neosporin work great)

Ok, If u listened to People who said don;t do it with a safty pin DONT LISTEN!.Ok i am 11 and my parents said no, So i decided to do it by my self. I took a HOLLOW saftey pin, TOP of my bellybutton and stuck it through. It did not hurt,i did not even have to numb it.Then i noticed the pin was not big enough. So I took the 14 gauge and and pushed it through. IT DID NOT HURT. SO if u want just do it, And  if your parents like to go swimming with you, take it out.

I recently tried to pierce my own belly button with a sterilized sewing needle (I used fire to sterilize it) and tried to use ice to numb it.The ice hurt almost as much as piercing it did .The ice didnt work! I still felt it and never even finished piercing it!! I might try again but in case youre wondering it does hurt. But not that bad.

I'm 14 and I want my tongue and belly button pierced. My parents won't let me. (Why are 14 year-olds the majority of those who want their belly buttons pierced anyways?) There's no way I'm going to pierce my tongue myself, so I want advice on how to pierce my belly button. I've pierced it before, but I didn't have a barbell to put in it (so i took it out about a week later...I don't think the hole was big enough anyways) I pierce it with a large safety-pin and I cleaned it and my stomach with rubbing alcohol. I iced my stomach for a couple of minutes. I still need advice for when I re-pierce it. I need to buy a gauge, but anything else I need to use I'll have to find around the house.  

If you have any tips or advice (or if i did something wrong the first time) please e-mail me as soon as possible at 6pyro6maniac6@stopdropandroll.com

Ok  For all of you that are going to do it with a safety pin make sure it is sterile i didnt the first time i pierced my naval and it got infected and hurt like a son of a gun.

DO NOT put ice on it.  Considering it really doesnt do anything it also hurts the tissue and makes it hard.

Ok... for one thing... DON'T PIERCE YOUR OWN BELLY BUTTON.. when i did it , it hurt so bad! and it got infected.. and another thing.. if the stuff your are using isn't sterile you could get blood poisoning.. if you see red "tracks" going up your belly.. chances are you have blood poisoning...

DO NOT DO IT WITH A SAFETY PIN!! I did it with a sewing needle, it is much more sterile and more reliable. Just sterilize it then leave it there for about 10 mins. then have a ball closure ring ready or mayb even a barbell and slide it in as SOON as u take out the needle! NEVER USE A SAFETY PIN!! THEY WILL START TO CORRODE AND U WILL GET INFECTED!!!!!!!!

My parents have said no to me getting my belly button pierced but I'm going to a party on Wednesday and I'm wearing an open top so I need it done. Can I pierce it myself with a needle but what if I hit an artery or vein? I'm quite chubby too so I don't normally wear those tops around my parents so they won't see it. Should I pierce it while I'm alone tonight?

hey,
   i pierced mine on tuesday.. i used a safty pin and i left it in for about 2 days.. to let the hole be there.. then when i got home on thrusday i got a 14g belly ring and i just started from the top and pushed through.. it hurt but it was worth it.. and doing it with a sefty pin is safe.. because it is easy to take out.. and i got the pro's to look at it and they said i did i a good job.. and just make sure u clean it with DIAL soap.. and put neosporin *sp* on it and clean it twice a day.. because it can get infected and that really stinks.. so yeah just be careful when you do it becayse u could mess up and it will just be really painful!

I did my own yesterday night it hurt alot. Use the ice, my friend did her'sabout two nights ago and now it is getting inffected. Put the neddle you are using in a boiling pot of water that is the best way to starelize the needle. Mine is looking ok, Iam using alchol wipes and Bacitracin.    

THE THING IS MY MOM DON"T KNOW!!!!!!!!  OH NO!!  PEACE  
P.S. be careful i mean very careful
i used a 14g needle and it hurt  my advice is usea 10g needle then go to a 14g needle!!

i have a question for the people that pierced their belly button at home and it worked out wonderfully.

1. how long did you keep the saftey pin/needle in?
2. was it necessary to keep it in that long?
3. after taking out the safety pin what was the size of the ring you put in?
4. how did you pierce your bb and what did you do after?

Ok. I pierced my naval with a surgical needle from a dissection kit. I used a thimble to put on my finger so I wouldn't go through my finger. I went slowly and it didn't hurt hardly at all. I did feel queasy after but only for like 5 minutes. I had to take it out though cause it was too high and not centered. MAKE SURE TO GET IT EVEN!!!!!!

yes! it will DEFINITALLY get infected! but no matter what you get pierced with you will get an infection. Even if it's professional. DONT leave the safety pin in, or just dont even do it yourself! If you leave it in than the metal will start to rub off INSIDE you and then poinson your blood stream= BAD IDEA. it WILL hurt, like a bi**h but u'll have to expect that. DONT DO IT WITH A SAFETY PIN! just dont. do it with a sewing needle at LEAST

Don't use a safety pin to pierce. It can deteriorate inside of you and also it's way too small, trust me, I've tried it. Either get a piercing kit or go get it done professionally. That lowers the risk of infection.

ok look DO NOT PIERCE YOUR BELLY BUTTON WITH A SEWING NEEDLE OR A SAFETY PIN. Safety pins don't have the right type of metal that is required for a heathly piercing. nine times out of ten if you use a safety pin it WILL GET INFECTED believe me i know because about a month ago i pierced mine with a safety pin and it got really badly infected. If you must pierce it on your own, get a self piercing kit on www.coolpiercings.com.

OK FIRST OF ALL DONT PEIRCE YOUR BELLY BUTTON WIT A SAFTY PIN USE A NEEDLE OR ONE OF THOSE NEDLES THAT HAVE THE BALLS ON THE TOP! SAFTY PINS ARE THE WORST THING YOU CAB USE AND YEA YOU MIGHT BEABLE TO GET IT THROUGH BUT IF YOU CLIP THAT SAFTY PIN TOGETHER THEN YOUR BELLY BUTTON SWELLS UP THEN YOU CANNOT UNCLIP IT AND YOUR PIN IS STUCK THEN YOU'VE GOTTA USE SICCORS TO GET IT OUT OR PLIERS AND THATZ REALLY GONNA HURT!! TRUST ME THATZ WHAT HAPPENED TO ONE OF MY FRIENDS SHE PIERCED HER BELLY BUTTON PIERCED WITH A SAFTY PIN ADN IT SWELLED UP SO BAD WE HAD TO BURN PART OF IT OFF AND NOW SHEZ GOT A SCAR THE SIZE OF A FIST CASUE OF THE FIRE AND THE NEEDLE GETTIN STUCK AND NOW SHEZ GOT NO FEELIN IN HER BELLY BUTTON AT ALL AND SHE ALMOST DIED SO THE REAL GOOD WAY TO GET YOUR BELLY PIERCED WOULD BE A PRO BUT THAT DONT ALWAYZ WORK LIKE WHAT HAPPENED TO ME SO IF YOU WANT YOUR BELLY PIERCED REALLY BAD USE SOMETHIN OTHER THAN A SAFTY PIN CAUSE YOU DONT WANT THAT BIG OF A SCAR SO YEA HOPE EVERYTHIN WORKS FOR ALL OF U

i suggest you get it done by sum1 who knows what there doing if not your hole stomach area can get infected and coverd in puss also when puss dries on the belly ring be sure to  wash your hands and get it off . do not use alcohol or neosporin alcohol can dry out the skin do not go swimming for a lest a week  it does not hurt when your getting it done as long as its fast i have mine done for a while now when i got mine done it did not even bleed at all try not to focus on getting it pierced and stare at a wall or something do not use a gold ring it has more of a chance of gettin infected start off wit a starting Ring so you can clean it better if it gets in infected which i most likely will get sea salt and water and pore it our your navel piercing if your really skinny i suggest you not get it done i can work its way outta the skin more easer also eat a little before you get it done because after words your kinda sick and might pass out at the thought of something in u as i did but it turned out for the best  please don't try to Peirce it your self as it will only lead to serious problems always keep your hands clean try not to sleep on you stomach if u can not avoid that put gauss on it and put a bandage do not wear short tops it can get a lot of germs that way  wear your pants below you piercing  if you must Peirce it your self be sure to get clamps and put a rubber bad on them to hold them lay down and have sum-one you strength do it. your navel it like leather so  thats y u need sum1 strong to push it through if any q.u. im me or email me at supasweetie99@aol.com thanks i hope i helped you guys out

Well I pierced my bb about a week ago with a safety pin and its healing up quite nicely. Its oozing a little bit but my ear did that too when I got it pierced and its not infected. Just clean it alot and move it around ALOT or the metal will graft on to your skin. The best thing to do is to get it PROFESSIONALLY done, but if thats not an option I say make sure you know what you're doing then go for it.

dont be dumb u guys!  dont do it with a safety pin or a needle cuz they are way too thin.....you really shouldnt do it yourself either unless you have a really high pain tolerance......if you go on to a body jewelry site, there are body piercing needles in pre sterilized packages if you HAVE to do it urself.  they are pretty cheap to....honestly its not that much money or anything to go get it done proffesionally....dont do something stupid that you will regret for the rest of your life......there are alot of nerves in your stomach if you get the needle too deep.....good luck tho

OK look guys i did my belly button,tongue,nose,nipples by myself and as long as you make sure its sterilized. It's fine to do it your self. I did my belly with a hollow needle, its the best because you can put a ring in it fast. and its less pain full. you u guys have any questions let me no dapartygirl2004@yahoo.com

I just pierced mine and everything seems fine. I used a safety pin and so did my friend. Nothing bad has happened. I used an ice cube and the safety pin to do it. It was kind of painful, but once you get it in, you feel accomplished.. ha ha I do! lol

Whatever you do Don't use a TACK tacks are the worst you can use a safety pin. when i pierced my belly button 4 years ago With a safety pin its never got infected and it likes like its been done Proffesionally you should put ice on your stomach so you wont feel it as much and then just take your top belly button Flab and then Push it quickly threw...

I just did my belly last nite...it didnt hurt at all. w/e u do dont use a safty pin cause i pierced my belly a few months ago and it got really gross and infected so i had to take it out. If you dont have a piercing kit or n e of that fancy stuff it doesnt matter, just used a sewing neddle it works well. It doesnt really matter if u numb it or not cause the last part of the skin ur piercing is going to hurt...so its better just to do it....and dont do it fast because you might miss where you want the pierce to come out....and i just have an earring stud in my ear until i can go to clairs or something to get a BB

ok guys heres da scoop!this is the answer. ok first take a peroxide pad and wipe ur navel and all around it,then take a close pen and grip it, after take ice and salt hold it on for 5 mins or until the ice melts, then take a sewing pen and wipe it alot with a peroxide pad, go from bottom to top and push it throgh WHILE NUMB(if not it will hurt like hell) .after take ur barge or the ring of ur choice and push it through.leva ein for about 5 months before changing.....no u cant bleed to death...no DONT USE A SAFTY PIN!.....after care....1) Wash your hands thoroughly before cleaning or handling any piercing, especially if the piercing is ?fresh?, or experiencing complications.

2) The best and simplest kind of cleaning solution is Saline solution, which is 99% sterile water and 1% pure salt (SodiumChloride). Saline can be purchased at a Chemist, a Pharmacy or made at home. If you make saline at home then you will need to boil some water in a clean pot or pan, pour the freshly boiled water into a container with a lid and then add less than ¼ tea-spoon of pure Sea or Mineral Salt.
Use cotton buds to apply the solution to the area of your piercing and to wipe away any excess fluid or crust that has formed there. Try to make sure that your piercing stays dry.

3) you should clean your piercing regularly, at least twice a day and sometimes more if you have exerted yourself (i.e. exercise) or if it is hot and you are perspiring/sweating throughout the day.
Be attentive to the changes in your piercing. Catching signs of problems early on is the best time to deal with them quickly. It?s also a good way of making sure that you?re not over cleaning your piercing.

4/ Once the piercing has healed, you will have an artificial tunnel inside your flesh. This is called a fistula and it also benefits from regular cleaning. Infections can often begin as bacterial growth inside the fistula, so flushing it with saline solution every three or four months (slightly more frequently in the summer months) can help inhibit the build up of germs and bacteria that lead to fungal infections or thrush. Some people?s fistula close quite quickly once jewellery is removed so its best to have sterilised jewellery and cleaning solutions to hand so the job gets done quicker. Lubricate the tip, or the ?thread?, of the jewellery with a water-based, antiseptic lubricant; approach your piercer, or doctor for suggestions.

5) Taking a bath soaks an abdominal piercing in bath-water, which gets dirty very quickly, and could clog a fresh piercing with nasty germs. A shower is preferable because it is a constant stream of fresh water, washing dirt, grime and germs away from your body. Swimming in chlorinated pools is likely to irritate your piercing so it?s best avoided until the piercing has healed; though seawater is, technically, great for your skin, it would be wise to avoid bathing in beaches with a reputation for having high concentrations of pollutants.

6) Your clothing can interfere with your piercing in a few ways. If an item of clothing fits too tightly over the area that is pierced, rubbing it, then the piercing becomes aggravated, inflamed and sore to the touch. It will produce a clear puss-like liquid and the skin around the piercing might be encouraged to reject the jewellery. If the clothing you wear is not loose enough to allow fresh air to enter and exit the area around the piercing then the area can overheat enough to allow germs and bacteria to develop and cause you problems. Bear in mind that the location of the piercing might suffer the stresses of everyday activities. People who have their navel pierced, for example, but do sit-ups regularly would be advised that this strenuous activity will aggravate the piercing. Another example might be a parcel courier with a nipple piercing might have to switch the side of the body they hang their bag from.

7) To give a piercing the best chance to heal you should consider the fact that your body requires certain nutrients and minerals to help it heal effectively. If you can honestly say that you eat a healthy diet then you are already providing your body with what it needs. If you don?t eat healthily then it might be advisable to supplement you diet with Multivitamins and minerals which can be purchased at a chemist, a pharmacy or heath shop. The bottom line is; that a healthier person stands a better chance of healing more quickly than an unhealthy one.

so guys good luck and please fallow this....:)

I just pierced my belly button, well, tried to, and i definatly do not suggest trying it like i did. Stupid me, I used a sewing needle that was smaller than the ring so of course it didnt work. I also did it really slow and it hurt Really freaking bad and took about 3 hours to get it all the way through, so it was like it was already healed when i got it all the way through. I didnt have a clamp or anything either, so after i took the needle out the hole was repositioned and i had to start over. This time i just tried to use the actualy belly button ring, but gave up because it hurt more than it should have since i had already put the needle through, but i think if i would have tried harder with the ring it would have worked.. just taken longer. So if your gonna use a needle make sure you do it fast, and keep the hole in place so you wont loose it after you take the needle out to put the ring in. Also make sure the needle is big enough... at least as big as the bar on the ring. I obviously did it wrong and will probably have a scar there forever now and it will probably get infected, so make sure you know what your doing before you start. Get it professionally done if you can b/c it saves so much time, and pain.

OMG some people are so stupid why spend 50 bucks to get it done when you can do it at home for FREE! All you need is to mark the entry and exit holes with a non-toxic marker then i would suggest using a kilt pin and do it fast because if you dont i dought you'll have the guts to do it anyways after that put a 16g or 14g belly-bar through it and apply polysporin to it 3-5 times a day. polysporin is the best thing you can use for peircings and dont worry if it makes a whole bunch of yellow crap come it out of the hole THATS GOOD!!! just wipe it off and re-apply

ok guys..
if your doing it yourself you have 2 options. 1) do it quick and fast or 2) do it slow

Im too much of a chicken to push the needle in realllllly fast so im doing my slow..

its not that bad..if you use a saftey pin, burn it first wipe off the black and then use rubbing alchol to sterilize it...i did that to a couple saftely pins and wear them in my ears...they never got infected

your belly button WILL get infected...just use rubbing alchol for that NOT PEROXIDE

just plan it out and  good luck

I'm planning to pierce mine myself sometime in September, and I've seen my mom's 14g belly button rings and they look thicker than safety pins and sewing needles. Do they make belly button rings smaller than that? Also do you think it will be sterile enough if I wear rubber gloves and rub everything down with Iodine? That's what they did when I got my ears pierced.

Alright, hello

i did it with a safety pin last year, i sterilized it by putting it in alcohol and heating it with my lighter. i then numbed off my navel and stuck it through pretty fast. it got badly infected.
DO NOT uSE A SAFETY PIN

i'mnow going to try again with a high grade sewing needle, and it should work.

don't use a SP, whatever you use make sure its sterilized, thats most important... and clean your piercing.

I pierced my belly button w/ a saftey pin last night, and i took it out to put the ring in and it closed up immediatly. it didnt even bleed. so I would say to leave it in for a while, between a couple of days to a couple weeks. If your'egoing to pierce yourself, here's a step my step guide


Supplies needed: saftey pin, paper clip, ice


Step one: Make sure that everything is sterile and that the saftey pin is clean

Step two: Put ice on you're belly button so that it is numb

Step three: use the paper clip to hold up the skin like a clamp

Step four: Push the saftey pin through the skin, if it's numb enough it shouldn't hurt.

Step five: make sure that you clean the area of your peircing

Note: Be sure to leave the saftey pin in for a couple days to that it doesnt close up when you put in the jewlery and be sure to clean it three times a day with a good solution.

I wouldn't use a saefty pin. If you, you had better keep it in alchohol for acouple of minutes, and rub it, then wash it off with water, then again, but it back in the cup of alchohol (Made for this kind of thing, like earring alchohol) and then push it in your belly as quickly as you can. Make sure you exale, or else it will hurt even more.
As of knowing if it would hurt or not, I would say no, if you have strong abs, and yes if you arn't used to piercing yourself. I know this, because I pierce my ears all the time, all by myself! If you want to know the best way to piercing your belly button, I would say get a sewing needle. The sewing needle doesn't hurt as much (I know) because the sewing needle has a longer handle. It has more grip, and instead of starting off really big as the point, it starts off really small and gets big.
DO NOT USE A SAFETY PIN! That is the WORST idea ever, I have already pierced my belly button, it worked out fine!! :D But, my mom said I had to take it out :( Becuase my mom thinks that I might get cancer, which is a possibility, you might get cancer.
If I were you, I would only do it if I were 13-14 years of age, and I would go to a professional.. with your teddy bear for comfort. :)
I suggest NOT doing your belly button by yourself, only because you don't have a clamp, and if you do (Like if you buy a set) then you should go see a doctor and see if it's okay to do this.

For Jen & others - It will take approxomatly 4-5 months to keep the belly button ring in. Yes, RIGHT AFTER you pierce it, you may put a real belly button in instead of the sewing needle. but don't take out the belly button ring for 4-5 months. K?

If you want more advice, I advise you to go somewhere where they actually do belly button piercings. Get your parents to drive you, unless you can drive, And ask for advice from either someone you meet there, or someone who works there. :D
Toodles!

If you do it with a safety pin it may or may not get infected depending on how you do it. You probably shouldn't leave the safety pin in - take it out and put some proper jewelery in the hole straight away. I've heard lots of bad experiences about using safety pins for piercings. Try and get some proper sterilized tools.

OK. here are my experiences.

First, I tried it with a safety pin. It doesn't seem smart to me to use it anyway- because when you put the actual belly button ring, IT'S A LOT BIGGER THEN THE SAFETY PIN HOLE. Not figuring this out until now, I tried piercing with a GOLD stud earring (gold doesn't form infections) but it wouldn't go through. Of course, I numbed it with ice to stop some of the pain. One of my friends said that using ice actually hardens the skin- and you need some numbing stuff (too bad i don't remember what it's called) but you can buy it online. FYI, I didn't bleed at all- But don't use a safety pin- because it ISN'T the right kind of metal. Using the wrong kind of metal causes infections.

I eventually gave up on doing it myself, that I'm getting it done professionally next week (i hope.)

If I can't do that, then I'm getting a piercing needle.

I pierced my own belly button with a regular 16 gauge needle kept it in for 2 hours and then swapped for a 14 gauge retainer ring and it hurts like hell but it looks cute
(btw it does look cute on guys like me)
now i just need to wait for a few months for it to heal.

my point of advice.
dont go to deep
dont go to shallow
dont use anything smaller than a 16 gauge
do sterlyze
do NOT rush a gauge up
and whatever you do line it up right dont blame me it was you to your self...

i actually peirce belly buttons ...and other body parts i sterolize all the needles and i numb the place where they want it to be peirced with ice for 40 mins then i take a pair of tongs mark where they want me to peirce it and ram a thick sewing needle threw, sounds brutile but its what you need to do, once you have comletly peirced the skin quickly put in the barbell or what ev u like or want((i recamend barbells because they are easier to work with))  MAKE SURE YOU CLEAN EVERY THING BEFORE AND AFTER THE PEIRCING!! and the leading thing for most of thoose infections is because either the needle or earing isn't sterol or the person has an allergie to the metal.  normally the peircing is a little infected the first couple days. so no worries i hope i helped some one out before they made any big decisions.  also if you live in CT U>S>A and i will peirce it for u email me at tlc101@sbcglobal.net  and i'llgive u the info

I have seen about 10 people say not to pierce it with a safety pin and about 3 say it was okay...you might want to listen to the majority and get it professionally done.  It only costs about 25 dollars to get it done and it might save you a lot of misery through infection or if the safety pin breaks down in the sore you are really going to have problems.  Besides, the safety pin isn't as big as you are going to need it to be and you are going to turn around and tear it open putting in a barbell.  But it's your decision to make.  Good luck with whatever you choose.

well i did my own 3 times..and the first time it hurt a little bit because i used a safety pin and i left it in for a long time...the second time i did it i was really drunk and one of my friends did it for me and she was drunk too....so it didn't turn out that great. but the third time i did it i used a clamp and a hollow needle that was a 14 gauge. so it worked alot better, it got a lil red so i started putting neosporin and triple-antibiotic cream on it and it turned out great.. i get alot of compliments and everyone is asking me to do theirs for them... but if u do pierce it yourself be sure to be safe and please make sure everything is sterile..but my best advise it to go to a pro so that u know it will turn out right and make sure u take care of it. i know this one girl, she did hers herself and she didnt take care of it and it ripped out and she has a nasty and digusting scar from it...soo just be careful.

PEOPLE PEOPLE PEOPLE chill with the safety pins thats stupid either get it done professional or get a 14 gauge needle grab the skin pull it out put the needle through move it up and down to get it loose then take it out and put the ring in ...my needle was a little smaller 16 gauge so i had to stretch mine a bit but if your parents are gonna kill you don't do it!!!!! be careful sanitize everything and clean it twice a day with antibacterial soap and if it gets crusty stuff..thats normal don't freak out to loosen it put warm water mixed with ROCK salt (non iodide) in a cup and suction in to your belly around the navel just please be careful and if it gets infected don't put neosporin on it it messed mine up but if it does get infected keep cleaning it and have your parents take you to a doctor or take it out HAPPY PIERCING!!!

PS: pain level 1-10 10 being the worst..id say its about a 4-6 depending on who u r
oh and don't put ice on it it makes it swell and will block the hole and the ring will be harder to go through.....well thats about it anymore questions email me at charmed_one_cw112@hotmail.com and on the subject put belly piercings..tell me how it goes good luck

But mine started slowly ripping every day until the 2 holes where right next to each other.I took mine out today. I plan on re-piercing mine once it heals up.

I have pierced my belly 2 times before and it dont hurt, me and my friend are going to do it again today and we have the needles.
It doesnt hurt that much and it is kinda fun.
The times i have done it, it has not got infected cos if ya do it in the right place and dont hit and blood vessels nothing can go to wrong.
I would say to just push it through and dont stop cos it will look hot later.

Seriously, you should not do this.  You CANNOT sterilize any of the equipment at home.  You need to use a machine called an autoclave, that uses heat and pressure, to completely sterilize anything.  A machine that doctors and professional piercers use.  It costs a few grand, so don't plan on just buying one.  Without it it is possible to get hepatitis or aids.  A safety pin is unsuitable as jewellery, it will leech chemicals into your body, and it is too small of a gauge.  It will rip very easily.

You all shouldn't be giving her advice cause you know nothing about body-mod and your advice is horrible.

24gauge is not bigger than 14gauge. does 24gauge even exist?

it'll be out of place if you do it yourself.
it won't be sterile.

have you not heard in all the news lately about people getting infections and dieing from piercings?
it's because people like you are horrible and tell people to pierce themselves.

First off,  DO NOT PIERCE YOURSELF, unless you're an actual piercer, or if you want a disgusting infection. Don't listen to people who said that their's went alright, it doesn't mean that you're gonna be okay.

Second off, go to a REPUTABLE PIERCER, make sure they have an autoclave, clean environment, they change gloves every time they touch a different object, and try and get it done with INTERNALLY THREADED jewelery, NOT externally threaded.

Third off, using a safety pin is extremely disgusting. You probably found one laying around the house, you have no idea where it could've been, even if you just opened it from a new package. It may even have traces of rust on it, so have fun getting tetanus. Also keep in mind that safety pins aren't as sharp as standard piercing needles, so it'd probably be even more painful, and it would take more time to heal. Also, safety pins aren't a good gauge to get pierced at.

Fourth off, you've probably never pierced anyone else's NAVEL, so you have barely or no experience in piercing. There was a story before of a girl attempting to pierce her navel by herself, and she pierced her stomach instead. Real smart. Don't complain if your piercing turns out crooked, shallow, or too deep, it's your own fault for not getting it professionally done.

Fifth off, no matter how long you dunk it in boiling water or antiseptic or whatever, it WON'T be clean. To COMPLETELY sterilize it, it must come from a sterile packaging OR an autoclave.

In conclusion, I just wanted to warn you about the dangers of self-piercing. It's extremely stupid to do so, and i advise you to see a trained professional, no matter how expensive it will be, it'll most definitely be worth it.

Okay wow, everyone who thinks it is a good idea to pierce ANYTHING with a safety pin is retarded. There are piercing places for a reason. They are trained professionals and know what they are doing. Go to them. Trust me, I'm pretty sure they are a ton more knowledged about the actual piercings, precations, infection and aftercare then a bunch of 14 year old girls are. Also when you pierce it with safety pins or sewing needles that you assume are sanitized, chances are they are not. Infections hurt. Bad. Just go professional.

I want to do mine so bad.
My mom says that I can get it done whenever I want
But I am scared that if I go to get it professionally done
that i will chicken out when I get there and I will look like a fool
I don't really want to go out and buy all this crap to do it properly
I have tried several times with a safety pin but had to stop because it hurt to much
I would say go and get it done by someone else
but.. who am i kidding? I will never even do that!!
Your choice is ;
1) use a safety pin, deal with the pain while doing it and take the chance of getting infected and it hurting a lot more
or
2)go and get it done, waist your money and chicken out while you are there and have everyone look at you funny.
It's definitely up to you though
But if you do it yourself your parents would probably get mad at you
because
you can either tell them you did it yourself and they will go on about that not being safe
or
do it yourself and have it get infected (they might want to go to the place you got it done to ask them if it will still be fine and then you are screwed when you don't know what to say where you got it done)
or
Go and get it done professionally with your parents permission and have it not get infected!!!
GOOD LUCK!

My friend is doing mine tonight. She's done herself and others a lot so I'm trusting her. If you want hollow needles go to a farm store like runnings and get cow needles. They are extremely safe and clean and they come hollow. Get a 14g. With a hollow it won't hurt because you don't have to take it out to put the ring in. Be safe and I will too. Thanks for everyone suggestions.

if you pierce your belly button with a safety pin it doesn't mean you will get an infection ,its just that you are more prone to getting an infection doing it yourself. make sure you put the safety pin in some boiling hot water with antiseptic in the water, put the pin through your naval WET there for it will clean your naval as it goes through. leave the safety pin in you for 3-4 days and then put a belly ring in. make sure its a ring and not a bar because bars make the heeling process longer trust me i tried it and a ring is much faster and less painful. :-)oh yes and one more thing put ice on you belly for at least half an hour before to numb it!!
hope this has helped.

Last night I pierced my own belly button, it took me an hour and a half to do it and I also had to do it three times, the first time it was in the wrong spot, the next time I couldn’t get the ring through so I just pushed the ring through by itself, I then went to put a belly button ring in today and the holes closed up and now my belly button is swollen and bruised, it wasn’t bad at all to pierce it myself it actually didn’t hurt at all but I did it with a sewing needle which is way to small, I am going to repierce it when it heals back up again but I am going to go to the vets place and get a needle from there because it is hollow and will also be close to 14 gauges which is how big a belly button ring is.  So my suggestion is to not pierce it with a sewing needle unless it is 14 gauges and using a safety pin on your belly button does not seem safe at all, so I think you should either get it done professionally but if not get a hollow needle from the veterinarian or from a hospital and do it.

i pierced mine with a pin. im leaving it in for a few days then putting a RINGGG in it. not a barbell. use a ring because that way you can rotate it everyday and you cant do that with a barbell. keep the ring in for about 1-2 months, then u can put a barbell in. and i agree with most people that using a pin is not the best idea. but..if ur as desperate as i am then u will. if u can somehow get ahold of a piercing needle then do that. whatever u do DO NOT borrow a needle from a friend. thats the worst possible thing. clean it by soaking it in saltwater for 3-5 minutes, and if it gets infected then use neosporen.
ok??

It really depends on if you are squeamish to needles or not if you think it hurts.  It hurt me when I pierced my own belly button about a year ago.  I didn't do it in the right place exactly and a week later I had basketball practice and got it ripped out.  It hurt a lot so some more advice to girls is keep a giant bandaid over it when you are doing sports because it is very possible to get it ripped out and it leaves a horrible scar.  It probably wont even look good anymore when i go get it professionally done!  just some advice!!! :)

when piercing your own belly button you can use any needle as long as you have properly sterilized it. Whatever you do don't pierce it with a safety pin and leave it in there. as soon as you have made a hole put a navel bar/ring in there straight after removing the needle. if you accidentally put the hole in the wrong position let the piercing heal and then try again another day (once it has healed). make sure you clean the piercing properly either with salt water or ask your pharmacist for anything they recommend for cleaning piercings.All the piercings i have i have done myself and i have never had and infected one. Take your time, do it properly.

k so i pierced my belly button with a saftey pin and i kept the saftey pin in for 2 days and then i put my navel ring in and im fine. just make sure you clean the saftey pin/navel ring like all the time. i did after every time i washed my hands after i went to the bathroom. make sure to also use something like purell on the surronding skin and you should be good to go.

If I were to pierce my Belly Button, but don't have a belly ring, could I use a sterilized earing until I get one? And if I were to sterilize a safety pin, could I use that, and let it say in for the time(and how long is that)??

DO NOT DO IT YOURSELF!!! AND DO YOUR RESEARCH!! i did it myself and it not only looked bad b/c it was crooked it got infected even though my sister was putting peroxide on it the whole time. its soooooo Worth it to go get it done, ask the person questions first....such as
do you have a license?
do you use disposable needles?
is everything sterilized first?
and more, for a paragraph that is award winning and full of information on what to ask the person and how to take good care of it afterwords, EMAIL ME!!!! katybug21292@hotmail.com

i pierced my eyebrow once with a sanitized pin and it never quite stopped being infected (despite treatment with bactine).  if you want to do a piercing yourself, your best bet really is to get a kit. (and don't /ever/ do a cartilage piercing with a pin--your cartilage could collapse!)
& melly: your freewebs page is gone. put it back up somewhere, please?? =)

I just got mine done professionally today. So much better than doing it yourself. I did it once with a sewing needle and it took me forever to get the pin through. Plus if the needles too small ur not gonna get a belly ring/bar through it.

If you DO DECIDE TO: TAKE ADVIL AND HOUR BEFORE OR LIKE 30 MIN. Clean the area with peroxide and rubbing alcohol. My girl used this vitamin a&*D cream for lubricant idk what thats about. Arch your back a bit so your skin is tight and pinch a little bit of skin. USE ICE TO NUMB IT. Try to do it fast and accurate (the  non toxic felt tip marker is a good idea). Use a thick enough needle so u can get  a ring through if u cant get a bar through use a lil hoop earing the ones that make a full circle and eventually you'll be able to twist in into the big part of the hoop (thats how i gaged my ears). Clean it with Dial Antibacterial soap 2 to 3 times a day. Salt water can speed up healing... and if you mess up and dont get it and decide ur just not gonna finish... its gonna HURT the next day! Like a bruise but it'll go away in a few days...

GOOD LUCK. Keep it Clean. Go professional (from experience)

i pierced my own ear twice
i used a sewing needle and thread
i left the tread in and moved it around so it wouldn't heal to my ear, but i realize now the thread leaves the hole too small and it hurts to get the earring in after. i would suggest putting it in right away.  then just leave it in till it heals
i put fruit behind the lobe to make it easier to push the needle through. (i don't know how that would work with a belly button tho)
but make sure to use a good metal. the ones you find at claire's(sensitives) is good but the best is gold.
to sterilize i used hydrogen peroxide, but the best is rubbing alcohol. hydrogen peroxide is good for healing the piercing though. its stuff any family with kids should probably have anyway. use ice to numb it. if you do it enough you can't even feel it at all.
STERILIZE EVERYTHING. the ice, the needle, the earring, whatever your using to help pierce, your hands, the flesh your about to pierce, the flesh around where your about to pierce, then the piercing after its been pierced.
its always a good idea to treat it with rubbing alcohol or hydrogen peroxide at least once

hi guys =] well i pierced my belly button last night && i used one of those kinda thin sewing like needles with the little ball on the end. i suggest you don't do this only because i'm going to have to leave it in for MONTHS so that i can take the needle out && the hole wont seal up as soon as i do. after a few months, my plan is to take the needle out then put a safety pin (well sterilized of course) in the hole (that way it might HOPEFULLY be easier.. but i'm not sure). but i am going to go to a pro piercing place, like kaleidoscope (sp?) && ask them what they think i should do. so i suggest that if you do it by yourself, you still go ask someone who knows what they are doing if you did it right. && i pierced my nose by myself too && it never got infected, all i did was wash it two times a day with antibacterial soap && occasionally put neosporin on it =] i pretty much know what i'm doing with the cleansing because i have both ear lobes pierced, the cartilage of my top left ear, and my nose pierced.. one of my friends said that you can buy the ear care solution stuff at walmart && use it too, but don't overwarsh because it can get dryed out and that's not good =]. if you need any help, or even if you have a couple suggestions for ME, which i could use =], then feel free to get ahold of me on myspace (www.myspace.com/mel_d51282), YIM (mel_d51282), or email which is mel_d51282@yahoo.com .

K well my friend Ashley and I pierced our belly buttons our selves. She did her own and she did mine. We didnt freeze cuz that just brings all the blood to the area, plus it would take forever to freeze completely. It didn't hurt that much. We used a safety pin. The hole that the safety pin makes is really small so you have to keep it in for a week or longer stretching it in a circular motion to get the hole big enough for a 14G. the piercing pain is just the beginning. IT HURT SO BAD for the week i had it in. The shower is heaven. Clean it lots or else it will get all nasty. Mine was infected for about 2 weeks. But now its perfect and i love it.

Be brave girls and JUST DO IT! lol

I used the "Claire's" ear peircing cleaner and mine hasn't gottin infected yet so, go for it and I did it slow! oh and hold the skin, jab the needle and NEVER let go of the skin or you'll never get the earring back thru! and fyi i'm not the skinniest person in the world so don't worry bout it!

I'm 14 now. I've been really interested in piercings for a while. I first pierced my own ear, by accident, when I was 10ish. Since then I've pierced my own ears about 10 times, most of which have closed up, but I have 9 holes left all together. A while ago I considered getting my belly butonn pierced and finally planned on doing it. I decied not to though, figuring it would look bad on my not so flat stomach. A few days ago I was at the mall and was gonna get my cartilage pierced but chickened out. I then decided I wanted to get my nose pireced and talking my mom into it. Sometimes I get desires to pierce something, which I did tonight. I didn't want to do my nose though, since I'm not very knowledgeable on that piercing, and its an obvious scar if you mess i.t up. I finally decided to do my belly button, its not even a piercing I particularly wanted but I did it just for the hell of it.

NAVEL PIERCING INSTRUCTIONS:
First, I took the thickest needle I could find from my moms sewing kit. I then found a large safety pin since I don't have a ring yet. I definity would recommend buying a navel ring if you have access to one. I washed my hands in hot water, put on rubber gloves, and got all my supplies ready. I washed the needle and safety pin in hot water and then rubbed them with rubbing alcohol. I used a sharpie to mark the spot, this took me a while cause I'm not exactly sure it should go, but I at least made sure it was centered. I then numbed the area with ice for abooutut 15 minuestes until I couldn't feal anything. I then rubbed the area with rubbing alcohol and began. I starting sticking the needle in as hard as I could but I couldn't get it to go in. After a minute or so it started going in. It went most of the way through, but I had trouble getting it out the bottom. The couple mm were definitely the hardest and most painful. It probably took about 10 minutes to get it all the way through, by the end the numbness had worn off. On a scale of 1-10 1 being no pain and 10 being a lot, I would say it was about a 6 or 7, this is the piercing itself. It was more soreness and achine than sharp pain, though. I put rubbing alcohol on it and then numbed it with ice for the next half hour or so. I finally decided to put the safety pin in. It took a bit of effort to get the needle out. At first In couldn't get the safety pin in, but with a little push it went through fairly easily. Once again it was very difficult getting it throught the last layer. Once I put it in, the pain was pretty for a while, but I think that was mostly from moving and touching it. Once I laid down, it stopped hurting at all. I ordered a couple belly button rings online and got express delivery so I'm hoping I'll be able to take the safet pin out within a few days. Make sure the jewelry initially is surgical steel 316LV or some letters like that(no idea what this means) or titanium or nobium. NOT silver. I read up on cleaning and aftercare and I'm hoping for the best. Now, about 3+ hours after doing it, it doesn't hurt at all when I don't move and isnt red or swolen or bruised. There was the tiniest bit of bleeding at the puncture but that's all. While I'd recommend going to a professional if possible, the important thing is to just be smart and use common sense. Do your research, make sure everythings sterile, use the best possible matreials. Sorry this is so long, but attention to details when doing something like this. I'll post back with the rest of my results and how everything turns out. Good luck to everyone!

I'm 14 now. I've been really interested in piercings for a while. I first pierced my own ear, by accident, when I was 10ish. Since then I've pierced my own ears about 10 times, most of which have closed up, but I have 9 holes left all together. A while ago I considered getting my belly butonn pierced and finally planned on doing it. I decied not to though, figuring it would look bad on my not so flat stomach. A few days ago I was at the mall and was gonna get my cartilage pierced but chickened out. I then decided I wanted to get my nose pireced and talking my mom into it. Sometimes I get desires to pierce something, which I did tonight. I didn't want to do my nose though, since I'm not very knowledgeable on that piercing, and its an obvious scar if you mess i.t up. I finally decided to do my belly button, its not even a piercing I particularly wanted but I did it just for the hell of it.

NAVEL PIERCING INSTRUCTIONS:
First, I took the thickest needle I could find from my moms sewing kit. I then found a large safety pin since I don't have a ring yet. I definity would recommend buying a navel ring if you have access to one. I washed my hands in hot water, put on rubber gloves, and got all my supplies ready. I washed the needle and safety pin in hot water and then rubbed them with rubbing alcohol. I used a sharpie to mark the spot, this took me a while cause I'm not exactly sure it should go, but I at least made sure it was centered. I then numbed the area with ice for abooutut 15 minuestes until I couldn't feal anything. I then rubbed the area with rubbing alcohol and began. I starting sticking the needle in as hard as I could but I couldn't get it to go in. After a minute or so it started going in. It went most of the way through, but I had trouble getting it out the bottom. The couple mm were definitely the hardest and most painful. It probably took about 10 minutes to get it all the way through, by the end the numbness had worn off.

i did it, not very fast cuz me and my friend couldn't get it through the other side, perfect place, but slow REEEEEEAAALLLYYY made me want to pierce my brain instead!looked great but most likely it will get infected. if u use a safety pin, take it out right away 1. it catches on things 2 NOT COMFORTABLE TO SLEEP WITH 3 it does cause infections (just not right away)just replace it with a small ring then after u think it's ready or can handle taking it out for a second, switch it with you're normal sized one (that doesn't hardly hurt at all) u shouldn't take it out for long peiods of time for like...a few months

Uhh everyone is wrong... dont put neosporin, rubbing alcohol, or peroxide on it if it gets infected.. the best thing for it is soap and that nasty orange stuff they give you at the piercing place.. i suggest you get it professionally done.. using a safety pin is too thin and sticking the bellybutton bar in just makes it hurt really bad.. just go to a professional k?

i'mabout to do mine and a friends, i'vedone my nose and my cartilige before with sewing needeles and safety pins, i have not had a problem so far ( knock on wood) the pin i'musing for this is surgical steel and about a 12 gauge or 10ish. i have plenty of rubbing alcohol and keeping the scene sterryl. i hope it works, the only reason i'mdoing it myself is 'cause  my mom won't let me have another piercing.





your shouldn't get infected if you clean it properly twice a day and don't touch it, unless you're cleaning it. try not to get it caught on anything that hurts like hell. numb it before hand for reduced pain and just go with it 'cause the pain is temporary.

first of all DO NOT pierce it with a safety pin needle. just because it worked for one person does not mean it will work for you. they got lucky.

doing the piercing by yourself can give you a crooked hole or you can infect it if your hands arent clean.

whoever wants to do their own belly button, i suggest reading up and doing your research. sanitation is key and you have to keep up on your aftercare.

getting your belly button pierced is cute but make sure you know your stuff. going to a professional is 10x safer and really pays off. just be smart about it ladies.

Buy a hollow needle and a banana barbell. take a marker mark the middle top of your navel and inside to mark where you want your piercing exactly. make sure to sterilize your navel and all the tools you need before. lay flat on your back. you may also want to use a clamp to hold your navel. shove the needle in through the bottom first and through the top. take the barbell and put it through the needle while easily taking the needle out then screw the top bead on and voila you have a piercing. remember to take very good care of it and clean it twice a day. Mix sea salt and warm water to clean it. It will help it heal faster. Leave the barbell in for at 2-3 months.

WELL IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO PEIRCE YOUR BELLY BUTTON DO NOT I REPEAT DO NOT BURN IT BECAUSE IT WILL INFECT YOU. IF YOU HAPPEN TO GET INFECTED USE NEOSPORIN, H2OCEAN, EAR PIERCING CLEANING SOLUTION, OR ALCOHOL. I REPEAT AGAIN DO NOT USE PEROXIDE BECAUSE IT WILL DRY OUT YOUR SKIN AND YOU WILL GET INFECTED, UNLESS YOU HAVE IT MARKED DO NOT DO IT FAST YOU'D RATHER TAKE THE PAIN BECAUSE IF YOU DO IT FAST IT COULD END UP CROOKED. SO TAKE YOUR TIME AND LET THE NEEDLE SIT IN ICE WATER, ALCOHOL, AND EAR PIERCING CLEANING SOLUTION/H2OCEAN FOR AT LEAST 5 MIN.

so the next morning, i peirced it, and got my friend to push it through, since she's done it to herself before.


oh yeah, i used a saftey pin.


and wtf?

DO NOT PIERCE YOUR BELLY BUTTON WITH A SAFETY PIN, SEWING NEEDLE, EAR STUD OR ANY OTHER STUFF OTHER THAN A STERILE NEEDLE, THICK ENOUGH TO CREATE A ROUTE THROUGH WHICH YOU'LL BE ABLE TO DRIVE THE JEWELLERY INTO THE HOLE (E.G. 14 GA NEEDLE AND A STERILE 12 GA BANANABELL MADE OF TITANIUM OR 316L GRADE SURGICAL STEEL). DO NOT PIERCE YOURSELF WITHOUT DISPOSABLE LATEX GLOVES AND WITHOUT CLEANSING THE AREA TO BE PIERCED WITH A DISINFECTANT. GENERALLY, DO NOT PIERCE YOURSELF UNLESS YOU ARE A PROFESSIONAL.
AND BELIEVE ME, I KNOW WHAT I AM TALKING ABOUT. OVER TWENTY PIERCINGS ATM, INCLUDING FACIAL, GENITAL, SURFACE PIERCINGS, ALL PERFORMED BY PROFESSIONALS - AND NO SINGLE INFECTION EVER.

I just pierced mine with a safety pin last night.

It didnt hurt that bad cuz i took an ice cube and placed the ice cube where i was gonna pierce it and then kept it there til the ice cube was almost gone. The one problem i found though was that the safety pin wasnt exactly sharp enough so it was a little harder to push through even if u go at it fast and hard, so i dont recommend using a safety pin unless u r numbed lol

and im reading all this about how safety pins are bad to use...what should i do cuz i really dont wanna get infected so bad that i have to go to a doctor :[ so should i take it out or keep it in?

idk if i did it good or wrong but its what i did and i cant change it now.  do you think ill get infected or anything? and how long was i supposed to leave in the needle i pierced it w/?

hey, if i were you id get it done professionally just to make it less risky. yeah its cheaper to do it yourself but you cant really be sure you've done it properly, and with a professional they know how much skin to pierce. If you really don't want to pay that much for it then at least get a friend to do it who has done piercing before or just shop around and see where you can get the best deal. If you still don't want to get it done professionally then make sure you buy a piercing kit and sterilize everything properly to stop it from getting infected. good luck, I'm getting mine done on Saturday!

I have pierced mine at home many times. It works the best with piercing it with a piercing needle and immediately putting in a safety pin.  (we stole the piercing needle from the hospital) after a week or so i used a huge safety pin 9like the kilt ones) to stretch the hole and pulled it out following it by a belly ring. it worked nicely. you just have to remember to be careful at night to not get it ripped out int he sheets and to clean it everyday. I used Bactine. you can get it for like 6 bucks at CVS.

i think you really should get a professional to do it. but, if you're like me, and cant see a pro then follow these
tips

BEFORE YOU PIERCE:

1. Buy a peircing kit. It makes everything alot easier and safer.

((a great site to buy a kit is http://www.mspiercing.com/Group/Piercing-tools-19.aspx they have a large variety of tools for affordable prices ;) ))

2. make sure everything is clean. stomach infections can be very dangerous! so to help avoid them, cleaning is best.

3. if you dont think you are able to shove a needle through your skin fast enough, have a trust worthy friend help. That way, they can keep you relaxed and put the needle through for you.

To pierce:

1. Clean the site area ((where your piercing is going to be))

2. Using a nice felt-tip marker, put a mark to direct where the needle will be going in, and comming out.

3. when you're ready, clamp the skin where the needle is going in.

4. put the needle through the clamp from your first mark to the next. (( it's better if you do this as fast as possible. it lessens the pain and makes it alot easier! but still dont do it too fast and miss your target.))

5.  leave the needle in for a minute then replace the needle with your chosen ring.

6. make sure you clean around where you pierced!

AFTER:

1. clean the piercing once a day. dont rotate it too much or you could hurt the skin.

2. avoid touching the piercing, except when cleaning, for atleast 6 weeks.

3. for the first few weeks it might look a little red and swolen. for the most part this is normal. also, a yellow substance might come from the hole, this is also normal. it might start to get on the ring, but be carefull getting it off, you could infect the spot.

4. if the piercing starts to turn black, or dark colors, and hurts alot, you should remove the ring. If it still hurts after a day or two you should talk to a doctor!




I hope this helps! If you have anymore questions, leave them on here and i'll try to get back to you!

im doin my belly button right now iv done it before and it didnt get infected, i took it out for too long and it closed up, i just use a lighter and pull up some skin... i guess i hope i have enough to put the needle through and push. it hurts like hell for a few minutes and i have to stop alott.. some how it just goes through. i want a hollow needle because it does work better but either way they are all needles and as long as you do somthing to sanatize it your basicly getting the same thing peircing it on your own. i just keep telling myself as i do it if the people in the amazon and other places can do it to themselves and not even flinch so can i. lol

It won't necessarely get infected if you do it with a safety pin however, they aren't as sharp as proffesional needles so there is a bigger chance of infection. It is also harder to get jewelry through a hole that has been pierced by a safety pin, as you have to push harder and for longer there will be more swelling so it will be harder to get the jewelry through.  I advise you to either get a piercing kit including clamps, or go to a professional.

DONT leave the safety pin in. not proper metal. use the safety first, only to peirce it but then take it out and put in the actual proper ring. put ice on it, it will reduce swelling. even if it doesnt hurt, it would be wise to do that. after you have peirced it, clean it. BUT dont use alcohol. rubbing alcohol will just take away the tissue that will heal it. use water with sea salt.
Happy peircing,
GLC.

I pierced mine by myself probably almost two months ago with a safety pin. I numbed it with ice first but then it was hard to push the safety pin all the way through. and the belly button ring wouldn'tve fit through such a small hole so I just took it out and let it close up. But it didn't hurt.

DO NOT DO IT WITH A SAFETY PIN no matter what! I did this 2 days ago with one and left it in and went to put a ring in it today and I have a  
ball of puss the size of the tip of your thumb under my skin its HORRIBLE! Yellow,black,and green puss keeps oozing out of it.. once it heals my friend (who is a piercer) is redoing it and says because of my infected piercing it will actually hurt and be harder for her to pierce because of scar tissue from it getting infected!

So if your going to do it yourself make sure that you do it right or you'll end up like my ugly swollen belly button=]

GOOD LUCK GUYS!

well, i did my own with a safety pin in the 7th grade. me and my bestfriend did it together...and we numbed it with ice for three hours. mine turned out great, and did get infected for a week or so, but it went away. i was in the shower and accidently rippd the safety pin with my louffa. my ex bestfriends got extremly infected and she ended up taking it out instead of properly treating it. She has hers pierced again, professionaly this time..and i still have mine. its perfectly fine.

im also getting my inverse navel done in two days. im pretty scared hearing about how it hurts and all that, and im going to get extremly nervous, but let me tell you. i bet it doesnt hurt anywhere near as bad as an industrial hurts. reallllllllllly bad.

then i'm going to numb my belly button really well with ice and push it through.
i bought a real belly button ring at claire's, it's big but it should work.
besides i take pain really well :]

Hey guys.. i just pierced my bellybutton exactly a week ago.i used a saftey pin and with the help of my friend..we shoved it thru. it takes 20-30 mins. the first 3 days it looked great and it wasnt scabbing at all and wen i put DIAL SOAP on it in the shower it could slide up and down easily. the 4th day i noticed it was turning pink at the top. and from then on to now it is very soar and pink and the top and from time to time white stuff comes out (just a little) and let me tell u..wen u do it urself it hurts like a b****. wen u get it professionally done its just like a 2 second pain. i already hav 7 piercings so my mom wouldnt let me do another one..this was my only choice..to do it myself. i am going to leave it in for probably another month..cleaning it regularly. and wen i feel it is ready i will put a earing in..then a lil while later i will put a 14g bellybutton ring in. if it still is soar and looks infected by a month then ill take it out.. if u guys have any questions my email is isabellacan4@yahoo.com. thnks :)

Okay if you wan to do it your are going to need, a safety pin or a needle, oral anesthetics (orajel) and like a belly button ring.
What you do is put the orajel all over your belly button, then after 5 minutes it should be numb, then you get ice and put it where you are piercing for 5-10 minutes, then pinch the skin and make sure its numb. put the needle or safety pin through and leave it in for 1 minute, then you put in an earring or belly button ring, as long as you numb it, it wont hurt. but watch out where you pierce because of veins.

kk. well i did it at home with a hook needle and it was not sharp enough. so it took like 200636546 hard pushes and then it finally went through but then when i tried to follow it up with a bb-ring it was not gaged big enough.

so i dont have one and now the scar tissue is hard && i dont think that it will ever work again but im going to try it again tonight.

so my advice is just to go get in done unless you want it done bad enough then take the risks. but be carefull
