    Question Belly button piercing

    I got my ears pierced at age one, so I obviously remember how it felt. I'm a pretty big chicken, but I really want to get my belly button pierced. I am going this Saturday and was wondering if there was anything I could take, such as an Advil or some kind of anti-inflammatory pill that would help alleviate the pain??

    Thanks so much!!

    No dont take anything. Dont smoke Mary-J, dont drink, dont take any pills BEFORE the piercign itself because it can cause bleeding... after the piercing is doen u can pop something but dont do it before.When i got it done it hurt like a *****. Dont let noone fool you.

    Thanks for the reply! I guess I'll have to deal with the pain. I think it'll be worth it, though.

    On a side note, in my original post, I meant to say that I obviously DO NOT remember getting my ears pierced at age one.

    hey- i have debated getting my belly button pierced for several years now, but i'm not of age, and i don't wanna sneak around...but my parent's said "if i came home with anymore peircings that they would rip them out with pliers"- but they can't do anything about it, can they??? last summer i was so preoccupied with getting it done, but now, although i think its cute, i'm so so fixated...should i still get it done? or just take it as a passing phase?? they cant do anything about it can they?? i feel bad going against they're wishes, but thats not really their decision to make, is it??? btw, i have two holes in each earlobe, and one on my upper right ear, so i'm not over peirced or anything, no tatoos, no desire for any, so i'm not destroying myself or anything- also, when you get it, lemme know the pain factor!!

    ok. when i had mine done. it didn't exactly hurt. i don't know how to explain it. it stung like a bee sting for a while. sit down and have a long talk and explain that you realllllllly want this and it's something you've beeeeeeeen wanting. lol. good luck. as for it getting ripped out, i was told that, too. but when i got back from panama city and they saw it, it was like, well it's cute but hope it doesn't get infected. haha

    hi, people!

    I got my belly button piercing in UK about six months ago and I absolutely did not feel a single thing. they sprayed this stuff on my belly button and it was over and done with. But, it a navel piercing needs to be good taken care of so it wont get an infection. so if you ask me, the hard part comes once yuo've had it pierced.

    Best of Luck!

    Some people remember how much it hurt when they got their ears pierced, and they get scared out of getting other body parts pierced. They think, argh needle, thats gonna hurt even worse than a piercing gun! On the contrary, piercing guns are evil painful things that shoot stupid blunt studs through your ears, hence the pain. The needles they use to pierce other bodyparts such as eyebrow, bellybutton and all that are really sharp, plus they clamp the place first, so you can hardly feel it - yay. Yay for needles. They're much less painful than bad bad vaccination needles coz they don't go down very deep and they don't inject nething into you :S . So if you're gonna get a needle piercing, I'd say that pain thing is the last thing you should worry about...though there is always the exception to the rule, so don't quote me on that.
