The way I pierced mine was using a safety pin. Then i left it in for about 2 weeks until the skin stretched, then replaced the pin with a ring. At first you should use a 12 g or smaller. There is no way for it not to get infected. It always will, but if you put peroxide on it at least a couple times a day it will slowly become uninfected.

Ok,when piercing ANYTHING you should never ever use a saftey pin. They are unsafe and are not the right type of metal. Even if you have used one before and it has worked out,their is a chance that it could get badly infected. I suggest that if you are going to pierce anything on your own you should use a sewing needle. Sewing needles have the right amount of thickness and sharpness to pierce something. I also suggest that if you are piercing anything other that your earlobe,you should go on the internet or get some info from somewhere on the risks that are involved and the proper procedures you should go by to do it safely. I have pierced my own 1st,2nd,and 3rd holes in my ear lobes and my bellybutton. Im doing my cartilage next. But Im reading up on how to do it correctly and safely first. I always sterilize my stuff and use a clean sewing needle. I have never had any problems. My bellybutton wasnt the most painless thing ever, but it was worth it and completely healed up in almost 2 months. Hope this helps.

Yeah me and my friend just randomly decided to do a third peircing in our ears one day...we took some push-pins (THE kind you use on tack boards, ya know?), numbed our ears for 3 minutes, used fire to clean the pin,  and did it. actually, it took me an hour and a half, because i was to afraid to just shove i through, so i slowly tried to wedge it in. it was the second time i had done this, but i forgot how much it hurt the first time...the worst part is when u have to break the skin on both sides, and u hear this horrible popping sound....ech..

i suggest you don't pierce your belly button if your not allowed. Cause if your mum finds it then she will most likely make you take it out. But hey, if you want to hurt yourself for the hell of it i suggest using a sewing needle, lotsa ice and 70%alcohol to clean it afterwards. (i got mine professionally done, alot safer)

My friends and I get hollow needles for like horses and livestock. Make sure you get the right gauge you just hold the skin and push it through make sure you don't get too much skin. It will pinch you then when you are slipping the needle out you put the barbell through behind the needle so you don't have to take it out then put a barbell through it again make sure you clean it twice daily not with hydrogen peroxide it dries up your skin you should use salt water or go to your nearest peircing place and ask them for the solution they reccomend good luck

You don't! Get it done by a professional. And definitely not by some friend using a safety pin - unless you love infected piercings.

I've tried piercing my belly button with a needle and I almost had it, but at the last minute I punked out. I started to feel all dizzy so I quit. I guess all I wanna know is... does it hurt really really bad when you push threw that last piece of skin, cause that's what freaked me out!!!

YES, pushing through the last bit DOES hurt like hell...in fact i don't think the rest is even mildly uncomfortable compared to that. i'vedone my own twice (first time i did it right but it got caught on something and came partially out...did it again a few days ago and pierced too much skin so i'llhave to let it heal and try AGAIN) with a safety pin (don't recommend it, next time it will be a sewing needle or piercing kit) and the last half a millimeter is always the most painful. if you can stand the thought, get it done professionally - if not (like me) for the love of god do it right.

Hey, I have a sewing needle and a belly ring. I'm supposed to get my belly button pierced for my bday (tomorrow), but I can't get it until the eyebrow heals, because the professionals wont do it, they said its too mean or something, lol. Any way, I really wanna do it, and I am about to, but I wanna know #1 what is the best way to sterilize? #2 Would a sewing PIN work, or should I go get a needle?

Belly button piercings will always get infected. They take about 9 months to heal correctly. Safety pins (besides being unsterile) are made of very low quality metals and can actually start to detereorate and corrode inside you. If your skin heals around the infection, it can spread and you could even die. Get it professionally done if you want it pierced. If you want to do it yourself, you obviously don't care about your body.

"i hae alys done my pericings my self why pay 50.00 for something that you might take out."

that was from another person's comment. If you are probably going to take out a piercing...then why get it in the first place.

I pierced my own belly button about a month ago. I just used a cork and put it in my belly button hole(wont work if you're an outtie) and numbed my skin with some ice then pushed the safety pin through the top then bottom, but I only kept the pin in for like 2 days then I changed it to a belly ring. But mines still a little infected but it's getting better bcause I started using the cleaner they give you when you get your ears pierced.

DO NOT PIERCE YOUR OWN BELLY BUTTON. You may have been lucky enough to have a good healing but that doesnt mean your piercing is ok. Depending on placement the piercing itself could be rejected and grow out of your skin quickly leaving a nasty scar. This is because the navel piercing is a surface piercing which pierces through a peice of skin above the navel and not clear through a body part itself.

NEVER EVER USE A SAFETY PIN.

The metal contained in safety pins are NOT safe to heal with. Worse case scenario the metal in the safety pin could adhere to your skin making it painful to remove. If you can even remove it yourself.

If you are going to get a piercing get it done by a proffesional.

If you end up some how getting a hold of piercing tools that have either been used before or are not packaged in autoclaved packages. DO NOT BOIL THEM. Boiling will kill SOME bacteria but NOT ALL. Which could result in serious health problems. THIS IS DANGEROUS.

Alcohol will disinfect and to some extent sterilize. BUT some microbes may still live such as HEPATITIS.

Due to all of these hidden dangers and MANY others, piercing yourself is not the wisest decision.

My name is Ashley. I have been studying piercing for over 3 years.

i pierced my belly button the other day with a pin, its very tough and will be painful if u dont numb it with ice first!! i kept the pin in for  a day and then switched to a ring, make sure the ring is gold, sterling silver, or  a safe kind of metal.. best to ask a person who does pierceings. Another thing would be not to just jab the needle in, do it slowly, if u numb it it souldnt hurt, but make sure u do it fast enough that the numbing doesnt ware off. This way wen u pierce it slowly theres less of a chance that ull pierce it sideways, thats how mine turned out the first time i tried to pierce it. also make sure to buy solution and clean it a few times a day.. ear solution even works... stay away from proxide and things like that, it will dry your skin out.. hope this helps ya <3

Heyy~ when i was 13 i peirced my belly button but i could never seem to get the ring in it.It always closed up as soon as i got the earing ready~...So a few months later i tried it again and the same exact thing happened. And a few months after i turned 14 i tried it once again, and it hurt incradibly bad...Is it b/c i have scars on my belly button? Does it hurt more when you have scars?

hey, ya i pierced my belly button a week ago with a small safety pin, then a few days later i took a needle to make the hole larger n stuck the ring into it.  It's SO cute, and it's not sore or red and it's not pussing.  But it hurt a TON when i did it bcuz i didn't do it with ice, but i don't think it matters if you have scars or not it hurts a ton either way but it's SO worth it :)

I got my top belly pierce on October03 and my bottem(inverse) belly last month. I got my mine piered professionally and I'm only 14 yrs and the piercer knows that! Don't ever pierce it with a safety pin cause something could go wrong, you could get infected so badly and its gonna hurt like hell. Just to tell you that if you girls (or guys) want to get ur bottem belly done... I'm not gonna lie. It hurt like hell cause the bottem has more fats!! The top one doesnt hurt at all, well maybe a pinch... thats it! Anyway my parents doesnt know about it and hope someday they will never find out or when they do, I'll be 18 by then.

If your gonna pierce your bellie button u should use a saftey pin... clean it out 1st then use it... Its almost always gonna get infected... But if you use Bactine and clan it 2-3 times a day it mill get better really fast...

hey everyone, i have done A LOT of my own piercings... My first one i did was with a sewing needle in my cartilidge of my ear.... It worked really good, and i have had it fot about 3 years and i love it... my second   didnt go to well, i used a needle on my belly-button, but, i lost the hole when i took the needle out and i couldn't get the earing in it SO... my third went really good, it was my eyebrow and i used a safety-pin and left it in for about a day, b4 my parents found it, (uh-oh) and then my 4th and 5th were my belly-button (AGAIN) bcuz i kept taking the safety-pins out to soon, and actually, if anyone could tell me how to pierce some one elses ear, that would be great bcuz my friend wants me to pierce her ear lobes and i dont know how to do it on some one else!! ok, so my email address is aries_girl_276@yahoo.com so, if ya could tell me, i would be grateful, XOXO thanx!!

its not a very good idea to do it on your own- if the space between the two openings is too big or too small, it could go very wrong!!! chances are it will get infected too, so the best bet is to get it done professionally, at least they know what they're doin!

You have to be crazy to pierce your own belly button..I got mine done professionally about 2 years ago and that hurt like hell..I could never imagine doing it myself or having a friend do it.  If you are going to get it done..go have someone that knows what they are doing do it for you.  Don't take the risk of hurting yourself and getting an infection or bleeding too much!!

Ok I just ran across this page on accident, but I'm glad i did. Because you guys all need help. Ill start off by saying that i am a professional body piercer at Texas Body Art. First of all please i beg you all not to pierce yourself.Go to a shop.make sure they are respectable and sterile. You can not sterilize a safety pin or a sewing needle they are not designed to pierce through skin it will traumatize the tissue.they are too small in size you have a chance of it rejecting and scaring badly because of the metals.second never put alcohol, peroxide,  dial or any other harsh chemical on a fresh piercing use 1/4 tsp non iodized sea salt in 8 oz warm water and soak it on your piercing. please please research what you want and gt it done right. Don't just go to any shop cus its cheap either ask questions ask to see health certs. and autoclaves for sterilizing and make sure everything is single use. think pf your health.

hey alright i am 14 and even though my mom said i couldnt do it i went ahead and pierced my belly button...heres exactly how i did just to help some of you out...first i got a curved barbell (14 gauge) at the store...get a stainless steal for your first one..then i went home and iced it for about 45 minutes! until it was very red and numb what you want to do is get a large safety pin (i know everyone is saying not to use it but it is safefer then actualy using a needle that will take a chunk of skin out! that is why i did it with a pin because i knew it was less dangerous) what you watn to do is put some rubbing alchol on your tummy and then sterilze the needle with a lighter until it turns a little black then whipe the black stuff off and put alchol on that also..then pleeease listen to this part START WITH THE TIP OF THE NEEDLE INSIDE YOUR BELLY BUTTON GO FROM THE INSIDE TO THE OUT SIDE WHEN YOU PIERCE!!!!! if you dont and you take the needle out you will loose the spot where the ring will go through on the inside...it took me 2 hours to stick it all the way through but it really is no big deal...just make sure you have enough skin when your piercing it through or else it will look really weird...once you have it through leave the safety pin in and take a few ibuprophen if you have any pain then what i did was take the part of the safety pin where you like clip it together...not the pointy end but the other one and put it flat against the right side of my belly button and but some gawze on it and taped it there then the next morning i took the gawze off and turned the end of the safety pin to the other side and kept doing that for about a week until the hole was a bit more stretched...make sure to clean it like 3 times a day to remove all bacteria and it shouldnt hurt AT ALL believe me on this one...it will look adorable..i just think its crazy that 10 year olds and 12 year olds are on here saying how they did it i mean i dont think i even knew you could pierce your belly when i was that young...really THINK about it before you do it oh yes and i told my mom about it a few days ago and she was fine with it she just said she wanted me to be safe but if you want to do it you should check with somebody first!! good luck girls and if any of you decicde to do it on your own let me know how it went!!!! email me with questions tennis_stud5959@hotmail.com

i think tat you should get it done professionally but im only 11 so i dont kno n e thing about this but i think that if you want to peirce your belly button that you should use a sewing needle and numb with either that stuff that numbs your mouth or just plain ice cubes.IF YOU USED AN ICE CUBE:keep the ice cube on there for about an hour of two so you relli kno that it is numb and then take the sewing needle and push it FROM THE BOTTOM UP! believe me it will hurt like hell if you dont do this or numb it.GOOD LUCK!!!!

Hey!!! well I've done my belly button 2 times. The second time was a complete success!! What is wrong with every body piercing their belly button with a saftey pin!!???? if you do it with that your not going to be able to get the belly bar through, because it is not the gauge. You have to have a 16 or 14 gauge needle. (Like a huge iv needle). If you have a ant or a parent that works at the hospital tell them to pick you up a needle. here are some tips that i hope help

>>>I find that it is much better to do it from top to bottom, because if your doin it your self you cant really see what angle your doing it from when your piercing fron the bottom. so if you do it from the bottom chances are if it does ok, it will be a slanted piercing.

>>even though your needle is supposed to be sterille wipe it off with alcohol prep pad.

>>wash your hands VERY good before you handle the needle. The smallest germs can cause the biggest infections.

>>once you have your needle aimed at a stright angle, push it through as hard as you can. That skin is tough!!

>>the first part will probably hurt when you first start to push it through, but after it is through the top layer of skin you will just feel uncomfortable pressure.

>>when you get to the end you will probably feel the same sting you got when you began to pierce the top layer  

>>when you see the bottom of the needle rub a little neosporen or vasseline around the top of the needle then push the needle up and down to get your neosporen of vasseline in the hole

>>then take the top ball off of the belly bar and rub a little bit of your ointment onto the bar

>>as you ease the needle out ease your bar up behined it.

>>hopefully by the time you have the needle out the belly bar will be in.

>>screw the ball on the bar and your done!!!!

>>DONT CLEAN WITH ALCHOL OF PROXIDE IT WILL DRY OUT YOUR PIERCING AND CAUSE IT TO MIGRATE AND ALWAYS USE GOOD METAL TO PIERCE WITH!!

>>WHEN CLEANING I RECOMEND BACTINE AND/OR NEOSPOREN

Thanks for your time

Ok listen up y'all if you want t get your b button pierced the best way to do it yourself is to numb it if you want then use a hollow or sewing needle sterilize it then mark your belly button in the place you want it pierced. Place the needle on that spot. Count to three and plunge it through or work it through . Then when it starts to bleed put a wet wash cloth on it and hold it there for at least five minutes. trust me I have pierced my ears 10 times and they have always turned out. Just remember to use real jewelry and put rubbing alcohol on it so it does not get infected. It might sting but it is way better than having it badly infected right!

I was supposed to do mine , a while ago but I guess the skin too tough. Here's my only advice. If your parents say no ask them what they would consider u getting .and get that even if it is just getting your second hole. and then on the side Pierce your own bellybutton. At least your parents won't suspect it. and a really good site is BMEzine.com with lot of experiences and DIY ones too.
Happy Piercing

hey. i've done 15 of mine and my friends piercings and never had a problem. i only use things that i can find in my house becuz i don't want my parents to find out and don't want to spend alot of money. this is what i do (regardless of what i'm piercing):

1. sterilize saftey pin/needle and jewlery you are gonna put into your new piercing with a lighter and then hand sanitizer

2. numb area your going to pierce with ice. hold the ice on there for about 5 minutes. this will also give you some time to think it through.

3. mark the spot that you are going to pierce with a skinny marker.

4. hold half of some kind of fruit (i usually use apple or pear) against the spot where the saftey pin/needle will come through.

5. count to three and push the needle through as hard as you can. for me, this usually takes about two hard pushes. you will hear the safety pin/needle when it goes into the fruit so you know it's thru.

If you are piercing your belly button yourself with a safety pin, i advise to leave it in for a few weeks. if it's your ear, leave the safety pin in for about 10 minutes just so you can find the hole easily and not have to repierce it becuz i know how much that sux! i always use a very very big safety even if the jewlery isn't that big becuz it's easier to get in then. make sure you don't pierce it crooked. i find that it works good to suck on something sugary before or while piercing yourself so you don't faint becuz a few times i almost have. when i pierce myself i ALWAYS listen to music to sort of distract myself. (becuz if you think about it, it's a lil' gross lol)alot of things that people tell you about piercing yourself AREN'T true. there's is NO WAY you can bleed to death from a piercing. most likely, if you get ANY blood, it'll just be a drop. piering yourself is a great way to save money and get an adreniline rush IF you know what you're doing and if it's clean. if you're going to piercing navel/face or genitals, i would suggest that you piercing your ears first just to make sure you can handle it and you will usually get a greater pain tolerance as you do more piercings. i hope you find this helpful! good luck!
if you have anymore questions e-mail me @ stentallica@hotmail.com

Update: When I did mine it got super infected so i took it out. The next day I went to the beach, and it got all white. The day after (today) I tried to put a needle through and it went through perfectly! I then put a thick piece of string through it like I was sewing my skin, and tied it up. It looks about 14 gage, so all I have to do is wait a few weeks until it heals up and it will be a hole forever... maybe.

P.S. I did the same thing with my second ear piercings.

-when u put the ring in is your choice . If u do it on a school night I  wouldsay wait until the next day after school. Or if your impaitant leave the pin in and move it around and put in the bar bell.
I tried mine for the FOURTH time last night in the shower with all materials , but I guess I need a hollow needle . good luck all

hey everybody post your aim or aol screen name on here we can chat about our peircins n help eachother...by the way Jezzi....get a 12 g hollow needle from a feed n tack store for horses. get a sewing needle too a 14 g. and a belly ring. push the hollow needle through first top to bottem then put the pointy end of the sewing needle in the hollow part of the needle thats already in there. then thread the sewing needle up behind the hollow needle. pull it all the way through or leave it in for a couple days til the skin stretches then push it through with the belly ring behind it a voila!!! its okay if its a lil purple on the first day but it should turn just red after that. clean it in the morning and night with salty water n some neosporin. while waiting for the skin to stretch i put two baindaids on to protect my skin from the sharp part of the needle. put on behind it (on top part of belly button) and on top of it and i put part of a cotton ball in my belly button to hold up the bottem part of the needle. GOOD LUCK!

hey my name is brooke and I'm 14. i used a safety pin  to pierce my own belly button. I'm a big wimp so i didn't do it all at once it took about a week to finally get it through. After i got it through i was so excited. i kept the pin in about a week or so and throughout the whole week i would move it around clean it and try to painlessly stretch out the hole. i put a barbell in when i removed the safety pin and now its doing fine with no infection. But if you do it, make sure to use ice to numb it and mark the spot so its not crooked and that its in the correct spot. after removing the safety pin, try a size 18 gage if you can find one and work yourself up to a 14 gage. if you have any questions i have msn or u can email me at kidron_2008@hotmail.com

I pierced my belly button a month ago with a safety pin, left the  safety pin in for a day and then put in an 18 gauge curved barbell. After a week i put in a 16 gauge.  My only problem is that this summer my mom is bound to find out and that's not good. If youre planning to do this, make sure you leave the safety pin in for a day, my friend had to re-do hers twice because she didn't do this.

Alright, Im 14 and i did my belly button myself.  I did it one night about 6 months ago.  I did it with a safty pin and left it in for about a week then put a bar threw it.  I had the piercing for about 4-5 months and took it out a month or two ago.  My dad wont let me get it done so i did it myself thinking i had the guts and took it out b/c im scared=P  Anyway, it heeled in the middle but i still have a hole at the top!  I was wondering if it was going to heel or if im just screwed and im going to have a hole there.  If there is anything i can do please! tell me b/c if my dad sees the hole im in deep crap=P

Oh and to the chicks that want to do it yourself... Make sure you are careful.  Dont be stupid and just shove it threw one night!  Its cute but it wont be cute if you dont plan it out and just stick a needle threw it.

Hey,
Ive tried piercing my belly button about 5 times the first 3 times i chickened out then the 4th time the needle wouldnt go through and the last time i got it through and left the needle in...my belly button got all hard around the needle and it was red and pussin. i talked to my teacher about it and she said i should take it out...so i did,i think its better to get it perfessionally done cuz they kno what they are doin.besides it might not hurt as much.when i pierced it myself the only thing that hurt me was da last layer of skin...but now i took my needle out and its healing but it hurts like hell like if i luagh or something.....i think if ur not alloud to u shouldnt do it unless u badly want it done and u kno how to do it.

Ya'llstop freakin' out about piercing your belly button i did it and it didn't hurt and i'mlike one of the biggest chickens.
But don't do it w/ a safety pin, it'll leave a scar so use a hollow needle.
I've done it twice and it's no biggie but i took it out because i was afraid it would get infected so i might get it done professionally if my mother lets me.
But take good care of your piercing if you do it by yourself and i mean very good care cause you never know what could happen.
So yea take good care and don't freak out, just do it.
It ain't bad as long as u do it right!

hey, im 14 and ive always wanted to get my belly pierced and my tonuge. my mom says i have to wait until im moved out of the house. i want to get it pierced while im young! im tried it 2 times with a safety pin and it didn't feel like i was doing any progress, (for my belly) is it possible to pierce ur tonuge by urself? i don't care if it hurts like hell, i just want to get it done! some of u are saying that safety pins are good and so are sewing needles, then u are debating which is best to clean it with. whats the best ones? thanks alot! also, how thick should the sewing needle/safety pin be and how long do u keep it in there until u should put the barbell in?? i know this is long but thanks! (im a girl lol)

Today is thursday and i pierced mine last thursday night. I had a really thick needle(almost as big as a 14g barbell, but a little smaller) I left the needle in all night and moved it around a little back and forth to loosen the hole. I put an eraser on the pointy end and slept with it in. The next morning I put ice on it then took the needle out and miraculously the earing went in hella easy.( Ihad to use an earing cuz i didn't have a barbell yet) I left that in until sunday and finally got a 14g barbell.
********************
My advice to all of you:
1.When piercing, remember to put ice on it or it will hurt like hell.
2. Starilize the needle with fire AND rubbing alchohol.
3. Don't expect it not to get infected just because you sterilized the needle.It may take a while but it WILL get infected.
4. CLEAN it everday, twice a day, with rubbing alchohol.
5. Take it out if after a week it's to infected to the point where the slightest tough will hurt like hell AND if it's still pussing and bleeding.
6. Mine is a dark pink over where the actual piercing is; which means it's infected, but I clean it everday 2-3 times and its not pussing anymore or hurting. I have it to the point where I can take it out and put the earring back in with no trouble at all.
7. JUST BECAUSE mine is going well DOESN'T mean yours will go as well.
8. PLEASE REMEMBER TO CLEAN IT AND STAY SAFE!



          LOVE,
              Heather

don't you guys know that you can pierce it with a sleeper. I did mine a few weeks ago. no infection. nothing. perfectly normal (and very cute :'))

oh, and about the rents. don't wear a bikini, just wear a one piece. talk it over with them, and when they agree that you can have one, show them it? that is what I did. I never got in trouble, and believe me, I have the toughest rents ever!!!!!!!!

Alright. I did mine when I was 15 with a safety pin. I clean, clean, cleaned everything (the skin and the pin), I iced for like 20 minutes, and then I just did it. If you have the money, definitely get it done professionally. I think it's stupid to do it for yourself, but I know I personally don't have the cash to shell out to get all the piercings I want. Safety pins give you a false sense of security (SAFETY pin...haha) but really, if you make an oath to yourself to clean it like 10 times a day for a month and to not touch it with you hands all the time, you should be alright.

u pinch the skin at the top of ur belly button hole and u mite want to mark it with a marker or something so u know where to do it and then u take a sterilized sewing needle (boil it in a pan of water) and push it through.  Leave the needle in for half an hour and then pull it back out and while u are pulling it out put the bar in the hole following the needle as you pull it out.  You might want to numb your belly button with ice before you do this because im pretty sure its gonna hurt

Alright, all of you young girls please listen up!! DO NOT PIERCE YOURSELF! this is the worst you could ever do. I', sorry if your mommy wont let you get pierced because you are too young, you'll just have to wait. You can honestly hurt yourself piercing when you dont know how to... the only correct way to pierce and not get badly infected is using a sterile hollow needle. And the only way to get it sterile is by using a professional autoclave(peroxde and alcohol dont cut it) i have a friend who pierced her own ear and she now has to get it reconstructed on through plastic surgery because it got infected so bad they cut it off. PLEASE listen to this advice. i have 13 piercing and all of which have been perfessionally done. By using a safety pin the metals of it can flake off into your skin and may cause a removal of your belly butoon if the infection gets too bad. If you wanna read more about what can happen to you go to bmezine.com and clicks the "risks" section.

I would not get my friend to pierce my navel even if I trusted them more than anyone.  If she is your real friend then do not let her do this because if she was to screw up she would get blamed for it and you guys would more than likely fight so..... if I were you I would do it my self or get a pro to do it.  If you are doing it yourself, take a seeing needle or a safety pin and before sticking it through, numb it for about 45 minutes to an hour and then sterilize the needle by using a light and when it turns black, wipe it off and then slowly stick it through.  Buy a barbell and push that through as you push the needle out and make sure the you start with the bottom of your bellybutton and dont get too much skin.  Good Luck!!!

hey u guys i juss wanna let u no that u should NEVER pierce ur own bb. u have no idea how dangerous it is. the needle has 2 be the right type of metal, and even if u have the right kind of needle it doesnt matter. i have mine professionally pierced, and im telling u guys, that even if u pierce it successfully there is still a extremely high chance that it will get infected. just because u pierced it with the right equipment, u still dont know how to take care of it properly, and only a professional can give u the right information to do this. even if u go on a bunch of websites it is still not the right info. trust me only your piercer can tell u how to take care of it right. so no matter how bad u want it, juss wait, i was there once before and i no how it is, but im telling u, NEVER EVER pierce it yourself.

OK... well I pierced mine 2 days ago by myself. First I boiled the needles in water to make sure they were sanitized. Then my friend Abby numbed my bb with ice and put the little needle through. After that she took the bigger needle through... the needle was bigger than bb ring so we thought that would work. We got that through and we took it out and put in the bb ring which we boiled that too. It didn't hurt at all! and it was sooooooo cute! :) But i had it in that night and all day yesterday and i cleaned it with epson salt because that's what they gave shana when she got hers pierced professionally. so she helped me clean it. But yesterday night i got scared that it was going to get infected when i took it out it was all black around the wholes and stuff... yet today it still is and i keep putting peroxide on it. is it infected? how long should i wait before i get it done professionally? I really need it done for Brickfest... which is July 25, do you think the professionals will let me do it?

Hey i know everyone says that piercing your own bellybutton is bad but think about it, you pay some one like 70 bucks to do the same thing you can do at home, all you need are the proper instructions,a sterile environment and tools, and then to keep it clean. I had mine done and the only reason it's out now is cuz i took it out is cuz i wanted to. Anyway, there are some people that have thick skin and for some cases that is a good thing, but in this case its not the best feature. Anyway what you need to do is have a sterile hollow needle a fourteen gauge is best. It is not wise however to use a safety pin because they're not at all safe(no pun intended). When you boil them they can melt, because they are made from a very cheap metal, and as thats dripping off your putting that in your stomach. So try to use a hollow needle of the best metal and if you cant find one you'll have to risk it with the slim chance on the safety pin. To make the actual piercing in itself go smoothly, putting a cork in the hole of your stomach is good and then having a friend there to grasp the top part where it is and pull it in a horizontal motion. Its an old trick that says putting apple and honey on the part to be pierced makes it easier. If you do use apple and honey make sure that its applied to both sides.Also make sure to numb your area to be pierced with ice. Any way thats it. however dont take out your piercing, it can close in hours. Dont clean it with cloth, thats where a lot of bacteria live, clean it with sterile white cotton balls no color. And only clean it twice a day or else it begins to over dry. also be sure to give it a warm salt water bath once a day for 20 minutes. Its where you put warm salt water in a cup and put it so that the cup is upside down on ur navel piercing and soak it for 20 minutes then rinse it out with clean clear water. Dont mess with your piercing to much either. dont rotate it around  in the hole unless cleaning it. Ointments to use would be Bactine. Prevents itching and infection. Dont worry its also normal for ur piercing to be red and bruised and hurting. Try not to wear anything that is tight on it or may pull on it. hope this helps good luck any questions u can email me at Mcandybaby@aol.com
Good Luck! Hugs and kisses

i have a lot of experience with piercings.  i've pierced many of all most everything.  not only on myself but various ppl from school, many adults, my family, and my friends.  i know for a fact using a safety pin and leaving it in for a certian amount of time is dangerous.  you dont have the right equipment or metal.  i have many friends though that just shove safety needles in them during class, walk around school with them, and at day's end remove it.  all piercings will have what i call a healing infection... its not bad... puss will come out every once in a while... dont freak out.  clean it of course... use soap and water and if it gets too bad use peroxide.  belly buttons are one of the longest piercings to heal, they can take up to 6 months, just bare with it you'll love the end result... when piercing use clamps... it keeps the skin tight and prevents the needle from moving... also use PIERCING NEEDLES!  there are actual needles used for such a thing... they arent expensive.  they are sharper than a saftey pen or sewing needle and hollow to remove the extra skin, instead of forcing the needle.  use a 12 gage needle for a 14 gage barbell... the small the number the bigger the needle.  plz take my advice, for your own saftey... you'll be more pleased with the results and have better luck with preventing infection... oh and it hurts less.  i hope this is useful.

But I was just wondering what it feels like when you get your belly button pierced by people who knoe how to pierce it, cuz about 2 months ago i tryed piercing mine on my own. I used a neddle and it dident hurt I even took a shower with it in, But then i went to take it out and it closed. Im going to attempt to pierce my belly button agian but i have no clue what to use and what direction to go eaither up or down, I went down last time. Also I would like to know when I should change da earing (belly button ring) and what gage to use when I do change it. So please answer my qusetion.

I'VE PIERCED MY BELLY 5 TIMES!!!
the first time it took EXACTLY 8 minutes...the 2nd- the 5th time it took ALMOST 45 minutes. i HIGHLY suggest that ANYONE who is going to pierce there belly on there own should NUM it either with ice..or for better results numbing cream( u should keep it there for atleast 15-20 mins. after that pick ur mark on where u want the needle to go in first. and just KEPP pushing...i think its SOOO much safer to get it done but MOST places u gotta be 18 or older. All the 5 times that i pierced my belly i did it with a safety pin (NOT ALL TOO SAFE) but it worked for me and it was infected only for like 3 days...but EVERYONE is different. okay well if u got ANY questions u can e-mail me at Anashae33@yahoo.com

Ok hi this is Mike regarding your post about how to do a belly piercing. Its better to get someone else to do it as you are doing so they do it straight. Using a sewing needle is fine but make sure its is NEW and sterilize it in boiling water first. Have the barbell ready to put in. Numb the area with ice for around 10 minutes. Then make sure you are somewhere where you wont jog the person doing the piersing (ie. lying down) Pull the piece of skin you want to pierce outwards and in one quick movment inset the needle. IMPORTANT:  Pull out the needle and insert the barbell at the same time this makes things a bit easier most people infect their piercing by not doing this. Dont touch the piersing afterwards leave it in for at lest 6weeks also make sure whoever is doing the peirsing is waering latex glovesd and has washed their hands. Good luk and i hope this has been of help i only really replied coz i was in thesame situation as u and i pierced my girlfreinds belly button and it didnt get infected!

My best word of advise is to get the piercing done by a professional.  I am a tattoo artist and I also do piercing.  At least twice a month someone comes in who attempted to do their own piercing once.  You want to use pro-sterile grade needles, preferably with a laser cut ultra sharp tip.  It does hurt, but the sharper the needle, the less it hurts.  I cannot believe what I have read on this board.  Safety pins??  Sewing needles??  The precision of both is horrible.  Not to mention potentially dangerous.  You want to use a hollow needle.  This will remove the skin in the path of the needle.  Sewing needles and safety pins are not hollow.  They would also make it harder for the barbell to be set in place.  A hollow needle, in a way, provides more room to pass the jewelry through.  Most of the time, when you go to a tattoo parlor, they will remove the needle from the autoclave bag right in front of you.  Most states in the U.S. require this to be done.  If you see a sterilizing machine being used, turn around and walk out.  Hepatitis has been known to survive sterilization equipment.  I would just listen to your parents.  If they don't want you to have one now, just wait.  Tattoos and piercing should not be about fashion.  I hope that this isn't one of those "Well, everyone else is doing it" scenarios.  One day you may decide that a piercing is not your thing and you may regret it.  Your parents said no, so just wait until you are a little older.  You'll have more time to think about it.  For anyone who is under the age of 18, and tricks a tattoo parlor into modifying your body, you risk costing the parlor their business and possibly having innocent people thrown in jail.  Not to mention, if your parents say no, then they are legally capable of filing a lawsuit.  In some states, the person who deceives the tattoo parlor may possibly face legal matters.  You could be thrown in a detention center, placed on house arrest, or fined.  Do you know who will pay for everything?  Your parents.  So listen to them or wait until you are older.  If you still want one when you're 18, I say go for it.  If you don't want one by then, you can say that you are glad you didn't do it.  No matter what, just don't do it yourself.

first of all, using ANY needle besides a hollow tip piercing needle is a terrible idea. Although you might have luck doing it yourself it is still unsafe. No u will NOT bleed to death. there are no enough blood vessels in that area of the abdominal to make u bleed to much. NEVER use hydrogen peroxide. it can corrode the jewelry and it dries out the skin also prologing the healing process. Healing can take anywhere from 4 months to 1 year depending on the person. Before cleaning your piercing Always wash your hands with an antibacterial soap and warm water. (Dial and Lever are good). Also clean the piercing twice a day and use could alternate with a sea salt soak using 1/8 tablespoon of salt and a small cup of warm water. Never play with the jewelry, it could cause scarring, migration(jewelry moving from the original piercing point) or rejection( the jewelry being forced out of your skin by your own body)and of cause infection.

god u guys are dumb me and my mom did it ourselves it was so easy and barely hurt! i came to this site before i had it done and i was freakin out but i just did it and its not as half bad as some of you retards say it is. all we did was take i sewing needle (the biggest you can find) numb with ice for like 3 minutes cut a potato and have some one hold  it where the other end of the needle will come through so the needle dont poke you then dont get a huge bunch of skin just do it barely enough i did mine but had to take it out cause i did it to thin but anyway then all you do is put an earring in it till it streches out and then put a small gauge belly ring or small barbell in it!

Most of you are 14 because you're all going through that phase of "oh, I want to be rebellious! rawr!!"   I have heard only horror stories about piercing your own belly button, I really wouldn't recommend doing it.  even piercing your own ears is risky, but I do that... I just wouldn't pierce anything other than ear lobes, it's just too complicated.  My friend pierced my cartilage for me, and I'm terrified it'll get infected just because all I've heard were bad things about it....  Save your money and get it professionally done.

Hey guys, yeah im 14 too but i'vebeen researching stuff about piercing on the internet. DO NOT pierce your tongue,eyebrow, nose, or any thing other than your bellie button or ears yourself as they are much safer! do not use: bactine, ointments, or creams. use non iodized salt and water (1/4 tsps of salt and 1/8 cup of water. if u want to know where to buy piercing needles, u do not need a credit card, go to www.shecoolhecool.com. they have cheap prices and excellent service. wear latex gloves when doing this! to pierce your bellie button, simply get your hollow needle (use it ONLY ONCE because it can carry hepatitis!!) and pierce through the inside of you bellie button to the top. leave it there until you have the earring ready and put it through as you take the needle out. (tip: keep every thing near by!) to NUMB it go to your local drug store, and pick up freezing gel,or with ice. swimming is NOT recommended while you have your piercing, although you can cover it with a BREATHABLE eyepatch. arcrylic will harm your piercing so dont use and acrylic retainer(a clear plastic barbell). "crusties" are normal.it is crustie stuff around the pierce and u will know when your pierce has healed after the"crusties" have dissappeared for 2 weeks straight and dont come back. IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS OR STUFF U WANNA SAY I HAVE MORE INFO TO OFFER!!!!! EMAIL ME AT: JeLLo1384@hotmail.com
To all the piercing store ppls and parents or whatever reading this message board, i do recommend getting it done at a pro piercing place. i do want to work with that some time (lol as if you care) n e ways i hope this has helped those lost piercer people! WWW.shecoolhecool.COM

If you want to do your own, I have advice for you!! Professionals use a 14 gauge needle which ranges from 3-10.00 you must be 18+ to buy one though! I went to a store and they didnt have a 14 gauge so I used a 12 gauge which is a tad bigger, it works fine!! And if you want to spend more money you can buy a clamp which is about $15! Some ppl use a sewing needle which is less painful and easy you just sterilize it by lighting it then cleaning it and do it and if you want you can numb ur belly with ice and do it its easy!

First of all dont ever use a safty pin. They are to small. You wont be able to get the ring in.And they will really get infected cuz its not the right kind of medle. I suggest u go to the store and buy a peircing kit or a 14g needle. If u get a needle DO NOT BURN IT. Boil it in water for about 5 min. After that wash ur hands and put on some gloves. Get some tongs (wash them really well) and clamp where you want to peirce it(it makes the area not as thick and it hurts less). Then get the needle and very quickly peirce it (the slower you do it the worse it hurts). It will always get infected even if you get it perfesionaly done. Dont use peroxid it dryes ur skin up. Use the same solution they give u when u peirce ur ears. U can get it at Clairs. Clean it with that stuff for about 4 weeks 3 times a day. And there u go.

Well i know everyone reccomends getting it done by a pro and definitly not wiht a safety pin. But where i live there is no piercing studios and theres nothing else to use but safety pins. Last night i guess i did a stupid thing, me and 2 other ppl got our belly button pierced with a safety pin. We numbed it up with bexocaine and then ice and stuff. We took good care to make it clean like but alcohol around it before we did it, steralixed the pin with alcohol. I know we shouldnt have used alcohol but we didnt know that. What other ways could we have made our situation more sanitized without going to a pro and without switching to a needle? How mcuh of a risk do you think i have of getting it infected even if i take good care of it? and how long do i need to wait untill i can take this safety pin out and switch it real quick?

I'vedone many pericings on myself and my friends over like the past year, i may not be doing it all safe but i'vefound out the best way to do a piercing is go to like Staples or something and buy a compass (ya know that thing you draw circles with) and get some pliers to take off the needle completely and there your have a perfect needle and its very sharp. before you do it wash your hands, the needle, and your belly button with soap and water then wipe hydrogen persoxide on the needle and your belly button and then wipe alcohol on it and hold ice on it till its numb then go for it. it doesnt hurt all that bad but unfortunately most of those needles are 10g.
and you want to use a cork so when you poke through it wont stab the other side you can use just about anything for a cork like an apple, carrot, or even folded up paper towel

Ok, I pierced my bb twice myself & once by a pro. All 3 times it didnt work out. In high school I did it w/ a safety pin. The skin around it turned purple & nearly black so I took it out. I waited a few years & I bought hollow piercing needles online & some cork from a online supply store.  I steralized as best I could. By the way, rubbing alcohol doesnt kill the germs like you think it does & heating the neddle over fire, bad idea. It gets a black coating of carbon on the neddle & you dont want that in a fresh piercing. It got infected & turned funky colors again & I had to take it out. then I sucked it up & had a pro do it. My body rejected it & it migrated out. So i have given up on this piercing. I paid to get a horizontal hood done instead. Plus, everyone is getting their bb's done now. Its played out when you see your friends mom w/ one so all you teenies out there no old enough to go & have a pro do it...leave it alone. Dont be that guy who has to go do it just cuz everyone else did it.

honestly i have done all of my own piercings (nipples ,2 00g lobes,1 cartilage,1 septum,1 libre, and i had a professional do my shins(yes pierced) but i would never do any of it without looking on line for safetly instructions , in certain piercings such as your tongue there are main veins and dengerous puncture points that can screw you up bad , so do the smart thing and look online ....things still taste odd to me after a year and a half of having my tongue ring out ...i hit a vein and my tongue turned purple everything tasted like mustard

ok..so my friend really wanted her belly button pierced but her mom wouldn't let her get it so one day we were at the mall and she he decided that she wanted to do it herself..so we bought a bellybutton ring . then we came home n came to this site to see how we should do it..we heard a a lot of people used a safety pin to pierce theirs but that its not safe and neither is using any type of rubbing alcohol or hydrogen peroxide..so to sterilize the needle we just put it in boiling water and we washed our hands....we got the needle through..but since a belly button ring is much thicker it didn't work so what i suggest is you buy a kit..we tried to pierce it for almost 2 or 3 hours and no luck..i hope this helps

please do not pierce your own belly button and do not use a safety pin.  I pierced my own belly button with a safety pin about a year ago and it got a big infection so i took it out and now i still have a big scar there.  If you really wanna get it done go to a professional.

My dad is a doctor and he tried to pierce my belly button. Everything was from teh hospital and right from the package, so it was 100% sterile. He got it through until the last bit and no matter how hard he pushed, it would not go through. He then tried it through the other way and it would just make a little prick but he said it felt like he was piercing steel or leather instead of skin. It hurt wayyy more then I thought it would if that helps. Has anyone ever heard of this problem before??? Have you been able to pierce it since?? Please i want it done very badly and I am willing to get it done professionally. (I went to a pro. place to get it looked at and they said theyve never heard of anything like that before.) Please help me as i am very desperate. Please email me at Ride32011@aol.com ~~~Thanks

Hey, i pierced my belly button with a large safety pin and it took me a really long time to do it. it didn't hurt that much and i didn't use ice. the only time it hurt was when i had to push it through the bottom. i and to get my boyfriend to do it! i kept the safety pin in there for a few days. i took it out  later cuz it got really nasty. now, i have a scar on my belly button. it kinda dips in like a hole. it's so UGLY! i'mhaving it done professionally next month. i suggest you do the same thing but if not be sure to clean the needle. dont use a safety pin! use a sewing needle! bye

i have 2 piercing on my ear lobe and one  up on the left part of my ear but my mom let me get one more on my ear lobe but only on one side.(stupid) she said i had to many for a 13 year old so i pierced the other side so it was even. you need to numb it with ice for about three minutes. then take a needle and boil it so it is sertile make sure that it is right where you want it pierced and the stick it through it didn't hurt because it was numb then take the needle and replace it with an earing and if you don't want your parents to find out go to a place that sells clear earing's and buy some so they wont see it hope this helps

OK i recently pierced my belly button. on Friday night i used a safety pin and left it in over night and it started to hurt, and the hole was way too small for the belly ring, so i went and bought a sewing needle about the right size. well it hurt to bad to go any further in so i took it ok..the top was thick enough for the ring..but the bottom was way too small...so i put an earing in..it doesn't look awesome or anything..but its not infected..i used ear care over the area..so yeah..maybe ill re pierce it..and the hole will be bigger next time..hope i helped..

maybe your mother wont let you get your belly button peirced at 14 because your too immature. and that seems about right if your even considering doing it yourself. im not saying theres anything wrong with young people trying to express themselves..my first peircing was at 12, but my mother took me. DO NOT PEIRCE YOURSELF! its totally unsafe, and theres a really good chance your going to get horrible results. the navel is a very sensitive spot and has a long healing process..but if you go ahead and do it anyway..no saftey pins...and no alchohol or peroxide..betadine*orange soapy stuff* is always a good choice for cleaning the navel..bactine for just about anything else...clean twice a day with either dial soap or the betadine and rince completly. theres a huge chance of infection so make sure your clean it. or better yet...DONT DO IT YOURSELF!!! nobody wants a peircing that doing look good and professional.

If you are going to pierce ANYTHING then you should go to a body piercing shop. Then buy the needle, don't worry the needle only costs from $i.25-$1.75. Next or if you haven't already buy w/e body gems or w/e i don't know how to spell Jewlery...anyways w/e gage your body gem is thats what gage of needle you get. i would prefer the 14g. since its more easier. You don't have to numb it or anything like that, just buy some cleaning stuff or just some rubbing alcohol would be perfect to clean the needle. Get the clamp or just something you have to hold your belly button in place and then twist the needle in. then slide the body gem into it.then your done only listen to this answer because my friend is a pefessional piercer and told me how to do my and helped me with mine.

Ok i just peirced my friends belly button yesterday and so far it looks really good.. we just took a normal sized safety pin steralized it and just went for it.  First she was playing with it and pushing and she got it in half way and she couldnt take the pain anymore so i layed her on my bed, got on too of her put pressure on the top and forced it through by pushing on the bottom.  The pin is still in there and shes planning on leaving it in for a while. It was very painful for her and took us about an hour of slow pushing...the best thing to do is when it gets about half way just force it through but putting pressure on the top of the belly button.  Ok i also peirce my friends ears all the time... I've done 2nd holes, 3rd holes, and cartllages.  They come out fine...Just use a sewing needle steralize it then get something to put behind her ear. something to give the needle a place to go...i do it with a toilet paper roll and it works great.  Just count to three and push it in and its in...leave in in just for a secind and let her take a few deep breaths...then quickly take out the needle and force an earing in sometimes...depending on the size of the needle and the earing it could just slide right in or it may take a while....:)

Not to the point of tears or anything but it did hurt. I know my first question was "Does it hurt?" I thought it would hurt worse than it did though.

Well about a month ago me and my friends got a crazy idea and decided to pierce our belly buttons. Honestly, we had no clue what we were doing and 3 of us got ours pierced with a safety pin which we left in. Upon reading some of these forums one of my friends took hers out. Me and my other friends started to get really red and tender so we decided we'd change it to a real ring. I changed mine to a 16 G, my friend changed hers to a 14G. It has since healed properly and looks great despite our inexperience. Yet we did wash it 2 times a day with Dial soap and took very good care of it.

For peeps who want to know the truth about bleeding to death from a navel piercing:

I am truly laughing as i read this one. Your navel is acces meat. Its not even a vascular part of the body, so there are no viens here ( which is one of the reasons it takes so long to heal).Also your uterus and stomach are BEHIND your abs, and are well protected. ANY PROFESSIONAL piercer will not try to pierce your abs ( which would be equivelent to stabbing you in the stomach with a piercing needle). Yes this is true thank you very much ;)

(not worth it) if you wanna do your yourself i suggest you use a sewing needle thats the same size as your barbell and use ice to num it so u wont feel pain =] and clean it before you go to sleep when u wake up and when u get home from school or practice or anywhere outside ... and MAKE SURE YOU AND YOUR FRIENDS OR ANYONE ELSE DONT TOUCH YOUR BELLY BUTTON !!! BECAUSE TOUCHING OR RUBBING AROUND UR PIERCING CAN INFECT IT !!!.. well good luck!!! and getting it done is so worth it!!

OH hold up you guys , my dads a nurse and he just had to take someones belly button off because they pierced it themselves,and now they just look gross. But N-E-Way , My dad pierced mine and my sisters and the best thing i can tell you is to be really still when your doing it and take deep breaths , remember to do the Sea Salt and warm water thing everyday. And if you have a hard time healing then you will want a 14 c gold belly ring , They are kinda expensive but its sooo Worth it it speeds up healing time like crazy. And if you play sports like I do , pierce it a good 3 months before season starts so you can take it out during games and practice.

I pierced my belly button yesterday with one of those hollowed hospital needles that I'm pretty sure they use to take blood. it didn't hurt the first time and i did it about 4 times on the top and once on the bottom. The bottom hurt more because i'm told there is more muscle there. But anyway...if u do it right, with a REALLY sharp needle as i did, it wont hurt...but i don't recommend doing it as i took mine out this morning because it hurt like HELL. i took all of mine out that i did myself. It looked cool but it was too infected and unbearable. hope u have luck with your piercing, Missa

HEY! For all you kids out there who are thinking about piercing your belly button yourself. You guys are going to do what you want so if you are going to do it, do it right. Soooooo many things can go wrong. Some people get lucky and some people get gangrenous belly buttons (its true). If you are set to do it yourself here are some instructions on how to do it so you have a less chance of hurting yourself too badly. This is what I did after some trial and alot of error. I warn you this is lengthy but every word is important! -

Pre Piercing -

1) Go to a Feed & Farm store (yes you heard me "Feed & Farm") buy a 396-140 (type) 14 (gauge) x 1-1/2" (length) needle with a Poly hub. It's a horse needle and they generally go for about .35 cents. They are all pre-sterilized so you don't have to worry about the whole lighter and safety pin technique ( a horrible way to pierce anything). Another good thing is that they are hollow (and S-H-A-R-P), so the needle will take the flesh with it. Thus making it alot easier to put the ring in.

2) Get surgical gloves to keep it clean while piercing. And don't touch anything but the needle and what you are piercing while you have them on.

3) Pick you ring wisely. There are really two types you could go for, a curved barbell or a ball ring. You want to go for 14 gauge types (like your horse needle). When you are deciding which one you want really think on it. Think use, NOT style. You can wear the ring you want after it heals. Curved barbells are harder to clean and more prone to infection but less likely to catch on clothing and migrate the piercing out. The ball and ring types are easier to clean but catch on anything and everything. If you're one of the kiddy's who is trying to hide your piercing and can't afford to give anything away by wearing lose clothing or are very physically active go for barbell and sterilize often. If at all possible go for ball ring since it is less likely to get infected.

4) Sterilize! Get some medicinal soap if you can. You don't want your belly button to turn black with weird and painful infections.

Get Ready to Pierce -

Check List-
* Horse Needle
* Ice Cube
* Surgical Gloves
* Isopropyl Alcohol
* Favorite Movie
* Ball Point Pen or Marker

1) Once you have everything ready to go, put on your favorite movie, it sounds silly but believe me it helps distract from the pain later.

2) Take your pen and make your target mark, inside and outside your navel. When making a mark for it be sure to make an good estimate for dead skin. Yes, your skin will flake off a bit around the piercing making it a little larger and alittle further out than you think it will be when you first pierce. Also don't pierce to far in, otherwise you aren't going to be able to fit the ring around the skin.

3) Ice up! Get the ice cube and ice your belly button until you can't feel anything.

4) Sterilize you entire belly button inside and out!!!

5) Before the numbness wears off pierce from bottom to top (inner to outer). It may seem alittle less controlled way to pierce but since you guys are amateurs, if you slip you don't want to have a one and a half inch needle stuck to the hub in your abdomen.  

TIP: Take a deep breath before you pierce. If you do it right you will barely feel a pinch.

6) Ok, open your eyes. You have needle in your belly button. What next? Have your ring on hand and ready to go in. Veeeeeery slowly pull the needle out CLOSELY followed by the ring. And TADA! Fasten the ball on the end (or pop in the ball and tighten the ring by squeezing it) and you can deem yourself pierced.

Post Piercing -

1) "NO Touchy!" Alot of people play with the ring when they first get it pierced and risk infection and may cause the piercing to migrate out (not a pretty sight). It may get kinda weepy, crusty, and/or bloody. But what ever you do, DO NOT PICK. Only ever touch to sterilize and clean it for the first 3 and 1/2 weeks, It seems like a long time but its better than having the words "Fatal Belly Button Piercing Infection" printed  in the obituaries next you name and picture.

2) If you are successfully pierced kick back and watch the movie you had in. Just remember that every time you even think about your belly button sterilize it so you don't get an infection and keep your belly intact.

3) Enjoy! Once healed (You'll know when, every one heals at different speeds) switch out to that fashionable ring of your choice and have fun!

Hi. I'm a thirteen year old girl and I pierced my belly button yesterday using a safety pin... So far, it hasn't been infected and I have already switched to a regular earring.  My parents haven't found out yet & I don't intend to let them. I do have one question:  Which is better: Hydrogen Peroxide or Alcohol for medication?

I think that you are all crazy.  Why risk infection just to get a piercing done anyway?  And if your mom finds out what you did to yourself she will probably be more mad at you than she would be if you just waited until she said you could get it done.  And remember your little girly bodies won't be thin and flat your entire life.  And what if in the future you want to have kids?  You are going to have to take it out anyway as you start to show.  Just think about what you are about to do and if you really want to risk a scar that you will be stuck with your entire life.  Or just go get it done professionally

Ok, I'm thirteen years old, and I really want my belly pierced. I don't think I could handle doing it myself, I am too much of a wuss. If you get it done by professionals, can you get them to freeze it?

I pierced mine by myself with a steel guitar string (the small e string) I didn't numb it and It didn't hurt. I do recommend keeping it very very clean and not playing soccer the week after you do it. And hiding it from your mom isn't smart.. she will find out mothers are like that. some parents take it better than others. but letting your mom know you want one will take the shock away when she finds out. It also makes it easier to tell her when its infected to a point where you become ill.

hey i pierced my belly button myself like 2 months ago but made the mistake of using peroxide to clear the infection and the skin dried and that triggered migration so the bit of skin got smaller and smaller so i decided it would b best if i took it out a couple of weeks ago to reduce scaring, then i pierced it again last night with a saftey pin (coz my m8 took the sewing needle from me to stop me piercing myself!! lol) and im sitting here in pain!!! its red and pussing!!

does anyone know where i can get a hollow needle to pierce my bellybutton with? i really don't want to use a safety pin, and i heard sewing needles don't break the skin well. a hollow needle seems like the best choice, but i have no idea where to get one.

if you want to pierce your own belly button all the advice i can give is to do the proper research and weigh the possibilities carefully before u make a final decision. in my experience, piercing yourself is perfectly safe as long as u STERILIZE EVERYTHING and CLEAN IT AS OFTEN AS POSSIBLE. hope this helps.

First of all, y'all are retarded for piercing your belly button on your own. Second of all, DON'T USE PEROXIDE! You can use something called SALINE SOLUTION in the that is used in the contact lens section of any large store. It come in a spray and a droplets. I got my belly button pierced professionally and the guy told me to use that because it wont dry u out and it has a small amount of salt so it wont hurt. It doesn't hurt or burn so don't worry! Be careful!

first of all if you want to get your belly pierced at home all you need is a sewing needle or piercing needle then you rub alcohol on your belly button then you numb it with ice wait like 4 minutes  so it can be numb then you push the needle threw but make sure that the ring is right behind the needle and make sure you clean 3 times a day with polymixin b (NEOSPORIN pain relief. works better than peroxide.

Hey, I peirced my own belly button almost a year ago. I orderd a kit offline where you just sent money in and they sent you a needle and stuff to sanitise with and evrything. So i did it myself. Well my sister found out and narked on me. My mom told me i could leave it in or take it out as long as it wasent infected. I took it out because i felt guilty. But After you peirce it a good tip is to soak it in epsom salt mixed with water. This takes out the infection. Also DO NOT wash it with a wash rag because a was rag is one big germ factory. A q-tip with some antibacterial soap is exactally what ur supposed to clean with. Good Luck!

Well people if your trying to tell people that they cant peirce themselfs I don't know why they listen because you can do to your own body what you wan't My name is Tom and I pierced my left ear lobe about 3 weaks ago with a safty pin and I've had a whole ton of different things in it it got infected once and all I had to do was clean it. Today I peirced my left ear two more times and my right ear lobe, and I still might do the cartalige on my left ear my libret and my belly button. I've done my belly button once and my ear once before but I took them out, and I've always used a safety pin. So people do what you want just don't use nails and keep them cleen and do some reaserch so you know what your doing

OK guys... In the 1970's, my mother pierced her own ears. She iced it up until it was numb, and put a sewing needle through, with a friend holding a potato to the back of the earlobe.

She's had the same hole ever since. At-home piercing can be safe, if you do it on the right part of your body and with sterilized equipment.

alright. what i`ve seen so far on this website is quite frankly, bull. so. to do it yourself. don`t.

one. the safety pins and sewing needles are not the right kind of metal.

second of all, they ARE NOT hollow. you need a hollow needle for any body piercing to take the skin with it creating a fistula [ skin tunnel] for which the barbell can fit through.

third. they aren`t gauged.

and first of all. a piercing takes AT LEAST 6 MONTHS to completely heal. it may look like its healed, but trust me. it`s not.

and any "pus" coming out of your piercing is NOT a bad thing.

it is a GOOD thing if LYMPH is coming out of your piercing.
lymph will be white, and WILL NOT smell.

pus is a BAD thing. pus will be most likely green or yellowish and will smell.


so DON`T do it yourself. besides. a lot of information on these forums is NOT TRUE.

if you want real information go to

and look for the forum section.

happy healing.!

Okay everyone my name is Brittany and i am 15 yrs old. I tried to pierce my belly button once and i numbed it with ice til it turned really red and cold so i couldnt really feel it. Then i took a 14 g sewing needle and started pushing it thru. well the skin was alot tougher then i thought and eventually the ice started giving off so i stopped and plus i started to bleed. My sisters fiance's friend works at a tattoo and body piercing place and im goin to get it done there. But my adivce to you is to get it done professionally, because if you do it urself you can risk serious infection. But you can do what you want. Also some tips if you try to attempt it by urself...1. use ice and put it on the area you want to numb for along time till you cant feel it. 2. make SURE U STERALIZE EVERTHING that you are going to use to pierce it. 3. Wear some rubber gloves and wash your hands. 4. use vasaline one the needle (DO NOT USE A SAFETY PIN!!)so that it will slide in easily and also put it on the ring when u put that in. 5. DONT USE ALCOHOL OR PEROXIDE!!!It dries the skin out and is too strong to use on the belly button. Use ear care soultion or go to the tattoo shop and buy some soultion for piercings there. 5. MAKE SURE U CLEAN IT 3-4 TIMES A DAY. 6. JUST B CAREFULL...BUT I STILL SUGGEST THAT U GET IT DONE PROFESSIONALLY its that SAFEST, FASTEST, EASIEST, and CLEANEST!!!

B

alrighty...i have periced like 15 bellybuttons haha so heres what i did. most of them didnt get infected...but the people who's ears infected easily got infected for a few days. you'll need a needle about the size of ur barbell mine was like a 14gage. you'll also need ice, something to put in it, rubbing alchohol, neosporin, and some cotton balls, lighter
1. numb ur belly for 45 mins  to an hour...u wont feel as much if you do this.
2. after its numbed, used the lighter to sterilize your needle until it turns black,, then rub off the black bit with rubbing alchohol.
3. make sure your hands are really clean...u dont want a little bacteria to cause a huge infection
4. rub a little alchohol in the area you are peircing, then start sticking the needle in. doesnt really matter what speed, but you wont be able to tell as well if u mess up if u go fast.
5. once the needles through, keep it in for about 30 mins and make sure not to poke urself with it :)
6. as you pull the needle out, ease the barbell or whatever in. try not to touch it too much
7. but neosporin around the area so the rubbing alchohol doesnt dry your skin out and so it will heal faster. clean it 2-3 times daily with a bit of sugar and soap to get any infection out. rotate it each time its cleaned so the skin doesnt grow to the barbell

i hope this helps! good luck!

To everyone in here using saftey pins.  Yes it may be true that using a sewing needle is safer.  But there is no self safe peircing unless your certified.  Im not here to nay-say and tell people what to do, but I would like to say that professionals know what they are doing.  And yes if you are gonna use a hollow needle the fatter isnt the better..  using a non hollow needle can cause the skin to regect the peircing becuase it is just entering and stretching space, to start a pericing you would like to use a hollow needle to take that lil chunk of skin out for the barbell to FIT snugly and approipiatly.  and also alowing the meds you use on it to get in the wound and help heal it.  By the way yes... using peroxide and Dial or such.. is a drying agent and slows the healing down.. And avoid SCENTED soap.. because that can cause and allergic reaction to the pericing and skin.  Peroxide also cleans the wound soo well that it causes the wound to not heal right... its weird but wounds also use some bacteria to help heal.  from all this i just wanna say   DO THINGS AT YOUR OWN RISK.. and why get on here and ask for a proper way to peirce... GO TO A SHOP!!

man by reading all these notes i can tell who is a bad ass and who's a goody-girl when your going to perice something just push the pin threw and if it gets infected well then your screwed and thats your problem not ours. like 2 days ago i just periced my tongue and you guys are worried about your bellybottom i periced that when i was 10 now i'm 14 likeomg if you really want it done do it if your scred its goin to hurt or get infected that means you don't really want it done so then don;t do it and useing a safetypin is just fin as long as you clean it first and a hallow needle its that good( i am sister to a profession i should know)

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!!!!!!

i pierced myself by using a safety pin then jamming in a 16G straight barbell. i just kept it clean with antibacterial soap. i sterilized my hands and the pin and jewelry with rubbing alcohol. ibuprofen helped with the swelling.

ok i pierced my belly button twiced... the first time it worked. first i numbed it n used a safety pin. then i didn't have a belly ring so i used a earring (a hoop without a earring back) and i left it in over night and in school. After school i went and bought a 14 gauge barbell and i took the earring out n tried to put the belly ring in but of course it did not fit. so it closed about a hour later. the 2nd time i tried i used a safety pin again. didn't hurt at all. and once again the belly ring did not fit. so i'mgoing to try again in about 30 minutes and from everyone's advice here's what i'mgoing to do...

* sterilize a thick safety pin with fire and alcohol
*numb it for about 30-45 minutes
* push the safety pin in slowly(work it in)
* close the safety pin
* lay the top of it where u closed it at flat against your stomach to whichever side. put a big band-aid over it and sleep with it over night and while in school.
* the next night flip the pin flat on the opposite side and continue this procedure for about a week.
* after it is stretched buy a 18g barbell n work my way to a 14g.
I hope it works out i have confidence this time. if anyone has anymore advice or questions pleeze email me at sxyhoopstarr31@yahoo.com or IM me at Aim at xo 3tricia3 ox
thanx,

My friend got her belly and ear done right in front of me!! She brought these vaseline and these needles prepare it all and this is what she did:
-Used ice pack to numb her ear.
-after a few minutes of numbing she left it like that.
-waited 5 mins then rubbers her ears with her hand to warm it.
-covers her whole ear with vaseline two times.
-poked the needle right into her ear right away and fast.
-she did it again to her other ear and belly.
I asked her did it hurt? were you about to cry?
my friend said nope it felt like nothing!

hey u guys. ok most of the answers here for piercing your own belly button suck. so heres one that u can actually use. here how i did it:

first u wanna get all your supplies ready:
a needle (NOT a saftey pin)
a candle
matches
a bowl of ice
marker (like purple or blue)
cotton balls
peroxide
napkins
BBR (belly button ring, 12-14 g)

ok so u wanna light the candle w/ the matches, obviously, then put the needle in the flame to sterilize it.

its gonna have the black carbon stuff on it so wipe that off w/ the napkins cuz u dont want that going in your body (ew)

put the needle down and pick up the ice and start numbing your belly button w/ it. do it until u think its cold enough. it should take like 3-5 minutes.

take the peroxide and just wipe a little of it on the place where ur going to stick the needle.

make a dot w/ the marker so u kno where ur going to do it and dont mess it up.

pull the flap of skin away from your body, take the needle and push as hard as u can down, into your skin.

try as hard as u can to break the first layer.

it'll hurt alot, if the pain is unbearable then take then ice and numb it longer.

make sure that your skin is always cold. cold flesh is easier to pierce than when its warm.

make sure u pierce DOWN, towards the floor, so u can see exactly where the needle is going.

continue pushing until you get almost all the way through.

the hardest and most painful part (in my opinion) is coming up. you have to push the needle through the last layer of skin.

becuz of the way the tip of the needle is made, like the tip of a pencil, it goes from really thin and sharp and gradually gets wider, itll be hard to push it through but a needle is the only thing u should use if u want to do it yourself.

keep the needle in for at least a few hours and be careful not to bend over, cuz thatll hurt.

find a needle that u kno will be big enough for your BBR. 12-14 g is what i recommend (becuz chances are a 16 will be too small)

slowly slide the needle that is currently in your skin down towards the floor (the way it went into your skin) and as it goes down, push the larger needle into its place.

this will stretch the skin so that u will be able to put the BBR in.

when the bigger needle is all the way in keep it there for a few min (10-15 min) then slide it UP towards the ceiling. while u are doing the slide the BBR into the hole at the same time.

when u put your BBR in, it will always go in from the floor to the ceiling. its opposite when u PIERCE your own belly button.

when the BBR is in screw the top on and UR DONE!

so now u can go show off your hott new BBR and make all your friends jealous! lol

i hope that helped cuz thats exactly how i did mine and i love it! ive had it for 6 months now!

xoxo,
margarita

right ok here we go,,,, iv pierced my ear four times now, and i know someone whow orks in a tattoo and piercing place so first off ill say when piercing anything clean your equipment if u havnt got any alcohol or anything then the best thing u can use is good old salt water  and your jewellery should be titanium for however long it takes to heal propperly  after that u can use surgical steel jewellery  if u can get ur hands on some clamps itll hurt alot less trust me and also everything hurts more when u do it urself id suggest gettin a friend to do it or if ur a hardcase do it urself :P  so here we go u got wht u need heres wht u do:

1) clean ur equipment with salt water  and the are of skin ur piercing

2)mark on with a marker where u want it piercing take a look in the mirror see if it looks ok (this is optional but u can get a little sandwhich bag or somthing and put ice in it and keep it on the area for about 10 minutes or somthing so its numb)

3)clamp the skin in the appropriate position

4)right heres where u do not wanna mess about get ur needle (sewing needle by the way quite a thick one or it will hurt like hell putting in ur jewellery) push the needle through the clamped skin (when the skins clamped it will hurt less when it comes out the other side)

5)leave tht for a minute or so get used to it

6)if u used a propper piercing needle u can easily cut each end off and follow through with the jewellery ////// if u used a normal sewing needle heres wht u gotta do dont be slow here the moment tht u take out the needle  it will start to heal (ur prolly thinking yeh right but it does believe me) be quick here take out the needle and quickly put in the jewellery required for the piercing then put on the balls or whtever

7)now clean ur piercing 2 times a day with salt water or this special stuff u can buy for piercings (this will stop any major infection)

now ur all good to go show off ur piercing just not to ur parents man! any questions tlk to me on msn or send me an e-mail thanks

I pierced about a week ago now and it hurt really bad! I did it with a fatter sewing needle and i held it in fire till it turned reddish orange. It really hurts and lately I have been having really bad pains in my stomach and i feel i cant let my parents know because it really hurts and I am afraid they will get worried and over exaggerate.

My question is is there anything that can hurt you by piercing your own bellybutton besides bleeding to death because there is no blood now, i took it out about three days ago and now its just scabbed over. I want to know if the pains in my stomach is just me being sick or if my bellybutton is a part of the whole ordeal! please email me if you think you can help... parsonsh@student.ednet.ns.ca

I pierced my own bottom part of my bellybutton with a thick ass safety pin. I already have the top part though. i TRIED to num it with ice but it was extremely painful.  If i did it, it wasnt to save money, but to be able to withstand that type of pain makes you stronger.... well i think.  i guess it was too close to the edge and after 2 months, when it was completely healed, the skin had stretched out so much that i could see the ring through my skin so i took it out. Now i have a really think ugly scar on my once nice flat stomach so that really sucks.  Ill probably do it again though. As long as you take it out once in a while a clean it GOOD it will be okay.  I did my own nose, 2 on my ear lobes, 1 on my top cartilage, and two on the conch of my ear( next to the ear canal) I also did my chin.  when i got my tongue done though, what hurts is getting used to the fact that you just cut a whole in your tongue and it hurts for about 3 days max.

im am a certified piercer.  first of all, to the girl who said start with a 12 guage of smaller.....12 is way to big.  the higher up the number, the smaller it is.  we generally pierce with 14.  if your actually going to do in yourself, start with a 18 guage.  second of all, dont clean with or soak in peroxide.  it just dries up the hole and closes it up.  instead, use anti-bacterial, anti-smell, boring hand soap that you push down to get out.

when you pierce your belly button there is going to be a blach ring arround the hole no its not infected but it means tha its healing but clean the ring if you choice to change it if your taking it out and leaving it out keep cleaning it if you dont its going to get infected when you pierce it put in a bannana barbell wich is a curved bar bell or a belly hoop but when you pierce your belly button clean it with rubbing achohalDO NOT CLEAN IT WITH SOAP!!!!!its okay if you wash it in the shower but dont clean it with soap insted of rubbing achohal and dont over clean it with soap

I think it's alright to do it without permission as long as you don't get caught.  Its bad when u keep forcing a needle through! My friend split hers that way so I really and truley advise you not to try this.  Us a sewing pin it is less pain and a little safer.

My friend Megan and I have pierced almost everything we have. We always used saftey pins, rubbing alchol, peroxide, and lots of ice. When we did our labrets we used lots and lots of ambosol... my only advice to all of you is to sterilize EVERY thing that you try to pierce with or you'll get a nasty infection... I've never gotten to do my navel... that I'm doing tonight. I've tried it before but I couldn't get the saftey pin through my skin... ehh... we'll see how it turns out.

- Good Luck to all of you fellow, Piercers!

what happens if the neosporin (lol) gets in the piercing... will that make it infected? I thought thats why mine did. What about the bottom? Can you really "bleed" to death?

iight ppl- listen up u wanna pierce ur belly button heres how to do it im a pro and have pierced about 6 ppls bellies and none got infected. first off, dont numb it. its a waste of time and just hardens the skin so its harder to push it thru. so get a big safety pin- line it up and push it hard and fat thru- this should only take about 1 min at THE MOST. then leave that in for about 2 days. go buy a belly ring thats 16 G or SMALLER (if u didnt know 0 is the biggest guage and 18 is the smallest) then get the safety pin in ur belly wet- slip it out push the belly ring thru and there ya go. then clean it like regular and salt it every day. u should only pierce it like this if u are under 18 and ur parents wont let u get it done. if they will or u are over 18 get it done professionally. HOPE I HELPED!!!

Hey I am 14 and I really want to pierce my belly but I live by the beach and in the summer if my mom sees it pierced she will freak out and make me take it out. Where can you get clear banana bells? And are they discreet? I have four holes in my ear lobes that have been don't professionally but a week ago I pierced a 3rd hole in my left ear with a regular earing which didn't hurt at all, I marked a dot with a marker where I wanted the hole and I pushed the earing through and it didn't hurt, can you sharpen the end of a banana bell and just push it through instead of using a needle or safety pin? Isen'tthat cleaner and more sanitary? It probably will hurt more but I'd rather do it right the first time then have to take it out cuz is got ****ed up. PLZ Write tell me you thoughts if you have pierced your own belly ! ! ! THANX.

I pierced my own belly button about 3 months ago w/ a sewing needle. It hurt, but not as bad as a safety pin. Which by the way, do not use! I found this really cool sight on the net where you can by everything the professionals use. They have the clamp (1.99), the piercer (3.99), and something else. I don't remember. Anywayz, there really cheap and no shiping and handling. It totally worked for me. My mom doesn't even know. The sight is http://www.etnj.com/tatshack/tattoo/how-to-pierce-your-belly-button.html.

I pierced my belly button, eyebrow 4 times, ears, lip, libret, nipples and tongue my self with a sewing needle and none of them got infected because i washed them every day with liquid hand soap antibacterial hand soap is better. just don't touch it and wash twice a day and after about three weeks it will be fine. And to the peroxide/alcohol cleaning don't do it, it can make it worse. peroxide is meant on cleaning and sterilizing not disinfectant, same w/ alcohol.

ok I am getting my eye brow pierced real soon and I had my nose pierced last year. For all you people who wants to know if piercing hurts well duh! Everyone is different though I had people tell me the nose is the worst place to get a piercing face wise. When I got mine done there was a little sting and that was it. I tried piercing my own eye brow before but chickened out lol not only that but I am the most paranoid person in the world so yeah. I recommand getting it done professionaly and when you are over 16. Young kids don't understand that it will leave a scar and if they don't want it later in life than oh well lol! Never pierce your own tongue or nose cause if you hit something wrong than you can go paralyze and in yor tongue is a vein and if you hit it you WILL die. Professionals told me that.

okay, getting your belley button peirced only hurts really bad for like two seconds. so many girls at school did it themselves with a saftey pin and they all got nasty infections. so use a sewing needle if u cant go in a fet it done. make sure u rinse it out good. ear peircings, totally can do with out the professionals, just do it really fast cause if u dont then u have that last peice of skin that hurts like a bith.

the best way to make sure it heals right is to put neosporen on the needle or bar or whatever and then put it in. that way it gives you anesthetic, cleans it, and makes it heal faster
works the best with ears though

NEVER EVER pierce your belly yourself. Some infections are less serious, and will go within a week of taking anti-biotics. Others, such as Hepatitis C and HIV cannot be cured and are fatal! It isn't worth the risk! Don't let anyone convince you to do something as dangerous as this, stay safe people.

Well... The thing is, find a 14 gauge needle. Yes, you can pierce your own belly button by yourself. You don't always have to go to an actual place. Alright, now... This is the things you need.

1. 14 gauge needle.
2. Clamps.
3. Rubbing alcohol or any kind of antisepctics.
4. A belly ring.

If you live in the Houston, TX area, you can find a 14 gauge needle at Freestyles in Willowbrook mall. If not, go to the store Hot Topic. They'll most likely tell you where you can find the needle.

I don't know where you can buy clamps, but while you're at Hot Topic, ask them where you can buy clamps too. They are normally around $25.

Clean the needle with rubbing alcohol or antiseptics.

Mark where you are going to pierce your belly. Try to grab a pinch of your belly skin.

Get the clamps to hold up your skin.

And just stick the needle through. If it's too hard, you might have rejection, because that's what happened to me. But, whatever you do, don't give up until the needle's all the way through.

Then, stick the jewelry in. Simple as that. OH! But, first, clean the jewelry with antiseptic, rubbing alcohol, neosporin, or antibacterial soap.

Bleeding will occur and swelling, but it'll eventually go away.

The healing proccess will take up to 6-9 months.

Clean it with antibacterial soap twice a day. And girls, if you're like me and lazy sometimes or your on your period and you don't wanna clean it with antibacterial soap, you can just clean it with neosporin.

If you have no experience with piercing yourself, try to find a friend who's done it before like belly piercings, lip piercings, etc.

My friend did mine. She can really do it. She did it over 6 months ago. It's almost healing, and no infection at all. For more info, just look it up on the internet or something. Or go to http://www.stainedskin.com/piercingcare.html

i pierced my belly button with a safety pin. it  killed so much for the last couple millimeters.  But it worked. After you pierce it apply ear antiseptic on it (ya know the stuff you can get at claires or icing after you get your ears pierced)and cleanse it everyday. Anyway, after leave the safety pin in for a few days-2 weeks. If you take it out right away the hole wont be big enough for the ring and u will have to re-pierce it. And for the ring definitly use a 14g or smaller or it definitly wont fit. Just as an extra tip...use ie to numb it and boil the safety pin first. anymore questions:

Hey
Okay so listen i have done my belly button before, With a safety Pin, it really didn't hurt, it just took me alot of time! almost like 3 hours. But i didn't have enough skin. But anyone who is looking for good advice, you should probably get a kit, or get some real piercing needles. It just seems much, much safer. I know alot of People have done it with safety pins, and more power to you, but i wont do that again, i have a huge scar now, on my belly button. My mum wouldn't mind me doing but my dad is like Hardcore Mormon, which sucks, but I'llget over it, b but there is this great site where you can get a piercing kit, and they give you directions it is :
WWW.CoolPiercings.com/Piercebelly.html
So good luck to all of you girls!! and also if your parents wont bring you, to a pro. Then get an aunt or an older sister or an older friend that is 18 years or older. Thats what i am planing on doing if my dad and mum don't give in with in a month, so good luck, and another thing, 1/2 these people who are giving you girls/boys advice, can barley spell, your going to trust them? okay, your choice. Again, be careful. it would be so sad to have a death by messing up on a belly button piercing. If you have ? or just want to talk you are more than welcome to email me at jillybean2241@hotmail.com or IM me on aol/aim at selfishdesire69
hope to hear from you all soon.

peroxcide isn't good for ur piercings because it closes the hole it will make ur skin grow over the safety pin. use alcohol even though it stings it works a lot better.

I want to get my belly button pierced but I have a sensitive belly button (it hurts even when you grab it,i've gone to the doctors and there is nothing wrong) but I am supposed to have a vain, a blood vessel,or an artery (one of those) by my belly button and that if I get it pierced i could bleed to death! I read the other post and i did more research and it has happened before! So a warning to please make sure you have no blood vessels,vains,or arteries there!!!

OMG Guyz I pierced my ears yesterday and I waz amazed at how fast and easy it waz. First I used an ice cube inside of a plastic snack bag to numb it with. I kept the ice on for about 1 minute or until my ear lobes didn't feel anything when I pinched them. Next I used a sewing PIN "not needle" and sewing pen is much easier to use than a needle because u have a better grip on it "hint hint" I placed the tip of the pin where I wanted the piercing and pushed it through slowly. It was soooo easy. I could feel it going though the very first layer of my skin and then the next very thick layer. The last layer is the hardest to get through. I didnt feel any pain whatsoeva. Not even one lil bit. I waz sooo shocked that It didn't hurt and how fast it happend. I then made a mark on the other ear with eyebrow pencil to make sure it was in the same place as the other hole. and I repeated the process. As soon as u push the pin through your ear and take it out you should put the earring in it. DO NOT WAIT!!! If you wait your ear will begin to bleed eventually and clogg the hole up bescause your body's first reaction to being hurt is to heal itself. The blood will cause a scab to form inside of the piercing and scar tissue. Put the earring in and put the back on it and admire it!!! Make sure u dont pierce it too low becuz I made that mistake but it still lookz great  so w/e. I'm too lazy to redo them. Hope this helps u guyz

i had my brothers friend pierce my belly button and i didn't even feel it. his friend was a licensed piercer though. he used all the proper procedures and my belly button was completely normal looking without any redness or itching or hurting in about 2 weeks. he told me to use ointment on it to clean it if i didn't feel like going out to buy the sea salt.i still suggest buying the sea salt though and do not use peroxide on it it dries out your skin and can prevent healing.so uh basically what I'm saying is if you are going to get your belly button done anywhere other than a shop make sure whoever is doing it knows what they are doing. don't have your blind,one armed, pottery loving next door neighbor who thinks he can pierce you belly button with a banana pierce your belly button... be smart about it.. if you can get out of paying 45 bucks for a piercing then go for it.... i did and im happy

Do not do your own bellybutton..i learned from doing it...its much better when you get it done by a Pro...when i was 13 i pierced my bellybutton  and didnt do it right it got infected and started coming through the skin so i took it out b4 it came all the way out..now i have a horrible scar there...if your parents say no..maybe you should listen 2 them...just don't do it your self because u probably have no clue what you are doing..and don't use a safety pin b/c even after they are cleaned..they r cheap metals and will rust and fall apart..ne ways ive done all my own ear piercings and never had a problem with those (9 ear piercings) but i think now i will just wait for a Pro to do it..its only $20...id rather have payed that then this nasty looking scar..eww..l8tr <3 Michelle
