Well, I'll be the first to burst your bubble here on two accounts.

First of all, belly-button rings, or navel piercings, are notoriously hard to heal. Think about it--you bend at your waist, your pants or skirt rubs there, etc.

Second, there really shouldn't be any proving to someone that you're mature enough; a responsible piercer won't pierce someone under 18, some even with parent's permission.

I'll send you here http://www.bmezine.com for more info on this and other piercings though, and if you DO get one, good luck. I've just known so many people with oh-so-many problems, even when things are hygienic and done by an experienced piercer.

Okie..I just got mine about 2 weeks ago.

And so far, it's healing well but it's true that navel rings take the lingest to heal (3 mths) and they get infected easily. So it's alot of time and effort you need to put in to take care of it.

I only got mine because it was basicaly something I always wanted to do. No special reason.

SO if you really want to do it, get a professional piercer and make sure you take really good care of it later.

They are really pretty though. But of course, it's a hole in your tummy. So you might want to give some thought to it.

Oh no! Lemming got my website !

Hehe, BME is an excellent site all about piercings, tats, scarification, and any other kind of bod mod you can think of.

If you're considering getting a peircing, get your guardians' permission (if you're a minor). Go to a piercing boutique that is STERILE and has a good, well known reputation.

And, as Lemming has said, belly button piercings are very hard to heal because of their location. IF you are responsible, mature, and with a good amount of luck, you're likely not to have problems. You have to keep the peircong clean, free of irratation, and constantly be watching it.

Think long and hard about it.

Hi. I got my belly button pierced last March and I've had no problems with it. Yes, it takes a little while longer than most piercings to heal but it's not a big deal as long as you care for it properly.

The best thing in my opinion is to get your parent's permission instead of suckering someone into signing for you. Chances are, you'll go to the first place you see and not check out their policies or anything. Never get anything pierced without checking out the place and making sure needles are either new or have been sterilized properly.

Last, make sure you clean your new piercing properly. Get an anti-basterial soap such as Dial and just run it over the ring and move your ring up and down. Some people say not to use Dial but it's always worked very well for me. And if it happens to get infected, clean it with the soap. The infection will be gone in a day or so as long as you keep washing and rinsing it well.

Basically, check out your piercer, make sure you see their license, check that everything is cleaned properly, clean it well and everything should be just fine.

If you have a history of sensitive skin or bad luck with earrings, this is one you might want to skip; just get a belly chain or some other funky jewelry for that area instead.

I wanted to get my belly button pierced but my friend did and got a really bad infection so I got scared. So I have a clip on which I think looks the same, and no risk of infection!

i got a navel piercing last september, but took it out after two months. it was healing all right and it was not getting infected, but i found that, for me personally, having a metal ring in the center of my torso was simply not comfortable. as lemming noted, any waistband (pants, skirts, etc.) will rub there (especially when you're sitting down, ouchie!)

though i myself only had experience with a ring, i've heard from many other pierced girls that barbells are significantly more comfortable in the navel; with a ring, especially during the healing process, much of the discomfort can come from the ring being shoved to one side or the other (by pants, etc.) and sort of hardening into that position when the puss dries (sorry for the graphic description!). i especially noticed that while sleeping. irritation and infection can often result from trying to reposition a ring in this situation; always wait until you are in the shower and have washed off *all* the dry, crusty matter surrounding the ring. then reposition it *gently.*

as noted earlier, antibacterial soap is essential. most piercing parlors sell a brand of medical soap called Provon, [Satin is great, too!] which is very gentle and works very well for most any body peircing. however, Dial, etc. also work well and are a bit cheaper. just be sure that the soap does not have anything added to it (perfumes, etc.), as these will irritate the peircing and increase your risk of infection.

a navel piercing is not an irreversible decision, but be aware that, if you do change your mind later, it *will* leave a scar (i have a lovely tan one just above my navel, and another just inside). think very carefully about it beforehand, make sure it's what you want, and (as you've already been told a half-dozen times), find a clean reputable place!

...but if you do decide to go through with it: good luck, and i hope you love it! ;-)

Im 15 and I'm going to get my belly button peirced in about a week. I've wanted it done for over a year now, so I've put a lot of thought into it. I know that it will somewhat hurt, but I can handle the pain. It can't be much worst than getting my cartiledge done. I decided that I want to get a barbell because loops will probably get caught on things much, much easier. I plan on keeping the antiseptic on me at all times, so I can clean it even at school. Well that's my thought about it.

When I got mine done, I didn't get to choose whether I wanted a barbell or a hoop. I got a hoop. For about the first couple days it hurt to move it and when I turned the wrong way or bent over (maybe also because the day I got it done, my sister pulled it and made it bleed . But it doesn't get caught on anything.

I love my belly button ring. I got it done last november. A few months ago it got infected but that was easily cleared up with some antibiotics. I wear my pants really low so my wasteband rubbing my piercing was never a problem.

I've read that after a piercing your body will sometimes decide its more comfortable with the ring leaning to one side or another. I don't know if theirs any truth behind that but I know mine leans to the right. Not that it matters...

Oh my gosh! I was wondering why my belly ring went further to the right side. I'm glad I know it is normal and I'm not the only one!

My best friend got her belly button pierced a few weeks ago. They used a barbell on her. But they told her to never touch it. The only time that she could touch it would be when she was taking a shower. They also didn't give her any soap. They gave her sea salt instead. They said never to use stuff like peroxide and stuff like that. They also said that sea salt also helps relieve pain. They also said something along the lines of why would you want to use something that you can't put in your eye. She was told to have a small glass of warm water with a little sea salt in it and she is supposed to soak it twice a day for five minutes for the first month. She also said that it didn't hurt to get it done, but it hurts when it is healing, and you can't slouch. She didn't like the slouching thing. She always slouches. Well, that's all I know about the belly rings. Laterz.

Well I got my belly button pierced about 9 months ago. They decided to only pierce it with a loop for proper cleaning. It was irritable for a few months but now its fine and it doesn't hurt at all even when you kind of pull on it. I love to play with it, thats the biggest reason I have it. Right now I have a spiral ring in it and it is doing fine.

I love my belly button ring as well! I got mine pierced about 5 weeks ago with a barbell. I haven't had any problems with it up till now! I was taking a shower and the ball feel out, and the whole barbell...just slipped out...i cleaned it with the barbell out a bit, and slipped it back in...no pain involved. Now though, i can see a little puss bubble, my friend told me I should pop it, and the bubble will heal fast. Oh, another question. I know there are different gauges, and i think 14 is standard...or at least thats what all of my friends have. Well my question is...are their different lengths of barbells? I was in the shower and decided to switch barbells, and the one I wasn't pierced with seemed too short. Is it because I am still healing, and the area is slightly inflamed? Just to let ya know...I went to Florida and was on the beach...in the ocean everday, i felt like that helped a lot...i would come in everyday and clean it...i felt like i got a double dose of healing

when your bb is first pierced the skin will be a lot thicker which is why the original barbell is so long. as it heals it gets thinner, but the first barbell you change it to should be longer. my friend put one that was too short in and her bb basically got infected and took another several months to heal.

just to let you know, stacy, I deleted your other post since you asked the same thing there as you did here. I'll answer here, but please in the future, don't post the same questions more than once. it confuses us.

anyway, february isn't that long ago for a piercing. one of the things you have to consider when getting any body modification (piercings, tatts, horns or whatever) is whether you can actually wear the thing. If you take your navel jewelry out for two hours, it may close up (unless your piercing is indeed old enough to have set in okay, but I doubt that since navels close up fast).

So you can risk taking out the jewelry, but it sounds to me your lifestyle demands that you not wear a navel piercing right now. There are reasons you're not supposed to wear piercings during sports and cheerleading, namely they snag or tear and that hurts a helluva lot.

I got mine pierced March of 2002, I was 13 (I had my mom with me) It didnt hurt at all to get done and it healed with no problem. I have about 20 barbells now. When you get it pierced they give you sea salt, twice a day you lay down with a cup of hot water and the salt on your stomach. Buy DIAL soap, and use that in the shower!

I got my belly button pierced about a week ago and so far haven't had any problems with it. I am 15 and had my dad go in and sign for me. It doesn't hurt at all when you first get it, but the first few days afterward are sort of sore. I was told to clean it twice a day with some sort of anti-bacterial soap (once after I get up, once before I go to bed) and twice a day with Bactine, sea salt, or Saline. I have to say I'm thinking it's healing pretty well. I also got a barbell and haven't had any problems with it getting hooked on anything.

I know this is going to anger a lot of people here. But getting your navel pierced before you are finished developing can cause problems with the piercing as you grow. There are a lot of girls who got theirs done at 12-17 and had it reject becase their stomach wasnt finished developing. It is my humble opinion that the navel should be reserved for those 18 and older. I am almost 19 and I still wouldnt get one because I have noticed my body change within the last year.

Navels take at least 6 months to heal, but that is unusual. It can take 2 years for a lot of people. You need to soak them with sea salt water everyday during healing at least once. You also arent supposed to change the jewelry AT ALL before it is *completely* healed unless you want to damage the piercing and icrease your risks for: rejection, infection, bumps, and scar tissue formation.

Navels have one of the highest rates for rejection and infection. They take a lot of work and time to take care of.

If it's a captive ball ring style hoop (usually a silver ring with a silver ball pinned by the 'ends' of the hoop), you can only get it taken out by a professional piercer. So hop down to the shop you got your piercing done, and they should be happy to help you remove/change the ring.

I had a hoop and the ball will pop off if you pull it away from the hoop. I can put it in or take it out whenever I want. But if you are more comfortable having someone else do it for you then go ahead.

I got my belly pierce about 4 months ago. I always wanted it but never had the courage to go do it. So my best friend took me and I got it done. It hurt like a BIATCH! But I am a big cry baby.

Dont ever try to take your belly ring out yourself if you have just got it pierced. I know a friend who tried to use plyers (sp.) and she slipped and almost ripped her belly ring out, she was in a lot of pain and it got really infected. So if you ever want to take it out, go to the place where you got it pierced and they will gladly help u out!!

i had my bellybutton pierced for about a year and a half and then it rejected (came to the surface) which really sucked for me...but when i took it out i realized "hey i have a cute belly button and it looks way better without that gaudy jewelry in it" so do what you want but for me i got bored with it and it just got in the way after a while. (and believe me before i got it pierced i wanted it soooo bad...i even walked 3 miles to a tattoo parlor on a hot sweaty day to get it done*8that's another story haha).

I got mine done the first time around christmas last year. January I got it done twice more on the sides. I healed quickly and I love the look. Sometimes it works, sometimes it wont, it depends on the person. I didnt think the pain was bad at all, but i had a friend faint because she thought it hurt so bad. my advice? DONT PLAY WITH IT!! after the first couple weeks you might think "ohhh its healed!! LEAVE IT ALONE BECAUSE IT IS NOT!!! leave it alone for at least a month...........then play with it.

I have a quick question. I have had my belly button pierced for about a year now. It has never been infected, and it has never hurt or caused me any trouble. My question, if I take my belly button ring out now, how long will it take to close up or will there always be an ugly hole above my belly button? What if I have it in 2 years then take it out? Thanks!
