It was a pretty easy piercing. I just hated when it would rub up against my clothing, and it was infected all the time. I applied polysporin, but it didn't matter. I don't recommend them.

I have my belly pierced as well,and i have done body piercing for over 5 years...its not a piercing for everyone thats for sure and i had trouble with mine in the beginning as well but now i forget its even there...i found wearing a barbell instead or a ring was much better for me ....if you are not sure if you will like it then buy one of those fake ones and you can kind of get the feel of what it might be like ....as far as pain goes i never had a problem with that and alot of the people a have pierced expected the worse got there adrenaline pumping and then when they got it done realized that it wasnt so bad after all...

i got mine done when i was like 12 or 13 and it didn't really hurt at all, at least not that i can remember. mine never got infected either, but at the beginning i remember it hurting to lay on my stomach. its easy! well mine was Laughing i want it again but im afraid itll hurt even worse because it's going through scar tissue.

.most piercers use barbells for the original piercing anyway. .they sell them at the parlor where you get it done, just ask whoever you go to about it and which will be best for you/

i was the first person in my school to have it done when i was 14 (9 years ago Crying or Very sad ) i loved it but i took it out with my pregnancies and kept getting it repierced cause it kept closing up.


i had it re done a few months ago and it got infected so i took it out and i don't think i'll do it again but i really miss it. it hurts no more than a blood test imo.

i had the top and bottom pierced and love it and i miss it.. i actually had the top done 5 times.. because i just do not heal well from piercings.. It makes me feel so much better about my stomach though.. makes me feel thinner for whatever reason.. Im getting my done again asap after i pop this kid out.

I had mine peierecd and so did my friend at the same place and neither of us had a problem with infections I think you need to make sure you go to a reputable clean place and follow their instructions to the letter (I did) I still think its fun Very Happy

I totally wish I hadn't done mine. My b button got sooooo jacked up because of it when I was pregnant.

I wouldn't do it again...that's for sure.

I wouldn't do my tongue again either.

I'm fine with 6 holes in each ear...that I don't even wear...mreh.

only thing i could see why you might take them out is that when your boobs become engorged they might even hurt more with them in.

I've still got it in now three weeks away from my due date! it looks gross but i don't care becasue i only got it done for me, i hated showing of my stomach before i got pregnant becasue i was so self consious
