Your piercings

I'm almost scared to ask, but I will anyway:

So am I the last twentysomething in America to get a cartilage piercing? What else have you had done?

I had my cartilage done with a gun at a mall. Don't do that. Ever. It sucked. It didn't heal for three months, so I took it out.

Guns near anything are a bad idea. Especially those stupid ear piercing guns.

I have a hole in my right nostril and through my labret (essentially halfway between my lower lip and chin). I cried when they punctured the membrane in my nose, but the labret didn't hurt at all. Eating was interesting, though.

You're not the last twentysomething, Jen, I promise. I know plenty of twentysomethings with nothing pierced.

Ow. Guns are *only* for lobes.

Anyway, your next step: an industrial! It hurts HORRIBLY but looks cool. (See pic here: http://iam.bmezine.com/?alison [that's my own industrial]). If I had known it would have hurt, I wouldn't have gotten it. Anyway, my left ear: three lobes, one industrial. My right ear: one lobe, one cartilage. And a belly-button. I'm thinking of getting an or bital, if I can find space for it. Alas. :)

I don't have any ear piercings, cartilage or otherwise. I like to keep any work I have done under clothing, so I don't have a nose piercing either, which I guess it the only other place you could have cartilage pierced.

I think another reason I don't have any cartilage piercings is that when I was into getting piercings, I was also in an I can't afford that, I'll just do it myself kinda mode. As a result, I have three nipple piercings, one of them rather crooked, and a belly botton piercing. I tried piercing my forearm by pinching up some skin, and running a pin through, but that got all messed up and grew out leaving a decent sized scar. I now know that surface piercings are near impossible to do.... I also know that you're not supposed to clean piercings with alcohol or peroxcide, which is exactly what I did.

It took me 12 years to get my first piercing, and then another 16 to get my second, so I don't think I'll be getting anything else done anytime soon!

I don't have anything pierced. Almost once, but too chicken. My lil' angel gets a hunkering every once in a while (cuz of her mom the dragonlady who comes from a culture where piercings occur very early), but I plan on asking/getting her to wait 'til she's at least 10.

I had my earlobes pierced in eigth grade, and left them in for exactly a year (about the safety period for healing until you can do fun stuff) before deciding I hated them. My hair would always get caught in them. So I just let them close up, although 4 years later I can still feel the little healed tube of where they were if I feel my earlobes.

I want to get my belly-button pierced. I know, I know, it's trendy and everyone and their grandmother has one, but I want one anyway.

That way I can be symmetrical. Yay. Symmetry is totally rad. No single cartiledge piercings for me!

Piercings? NO! No way!

Oh, okay, so about eight or ten years ago I thought about getting my ears pierced... but then decided that it was a bit much for a middle- aged guy to get his ears pierced, kind of like buying a bright yellow two seater sports car...

My older son (32) has had multiple ear things since college (hmmm, I guess he got his first piercing in high school)... My daughter (18) has no interest in pierced ears (we've told her since she was little that she could get her ears pierced anytime she wanted) but what she wants is an eyebrow ring (the very mention of which causes us parental units to foam at the mouth and hold our breath until we turn blue)... Youngest is 15 and has expressed no interest in such stuff, although he regularly makes his hair turn weird colors.

My wife has pierced ears (done when she was in her late 20's).

I had a vascectomy. Does that count?

I had third holes pierced in my ears years ago, but those got infected so often I just gave up on piercing any further up the ear. So no cartilege piercings for me. However, I got my nostril pierced three months ago and it only hurt while the piercer was putting the jewelry in. Otherwise it's been totally trouble and pain free, and I'm very happy with it.

I had my bellybutton done in mid december. I'm still cleaning it everyday. It was done excellently though. Body Manipulations in San Francisco is just the best place to go, plus, if you get infected, they will help you with free advice even if you didn't get pierced there! I had my nipple done actually, when I was interning out here in 1994, but it was done too spontaneously, and I removed it after a few months. The bellypiercing is definitely right for me, though it has kept me from riding my motorcycle since I did it, for the most part. I still walk around with the top button undone on my jeans, two months later, so that it doesn't rub and irritate it. Belly piercings take the longest time to heal, up to a year! Other than that, three piercings in one ear, two in the other. I think I am done with that particular activity....a shame, the rush of endorphins is so fun!

-- Anonymous, February 18, 2001

Actually, even 16 months later, I still don't let the waistband of my jeans hit my (now healed) bellybutton... it feels sort of icky to have your pants push the metal around in your body while you move. Blech.

However, if you are a little tipsy, that same feeling becomes slightly erotic. Go fig.

I'm looking more for reassurance here, rather than advice - but bear with me anyhow. My husband and I have had a recent disagreement over our 20 mth. old twin boys and what I consider to be a question of fashion. My DH decided within the last 6 mths or so that he would like our boys to have pierced ears. It began shortly after his sister visited with her three boys (9 mths - 8 yrs) all of whom have pierced ears. While I respect her decision to get her kids ears pierced, it's one that I would not feel comfortable making for our boys. It's not a "boy / girl" issue as far as I'm concerned, but more a question of age. I'd have no problem, a few years down the line, if either of them ask to have earrings - as long as it was their own decision then that's okay. Even now, I do agree with DH that the boys would look extra cute/cool with earrings (as do his nephews) but I feel that they're embarking on a few years of rough n' tumble living and I would hate to thing what could happen. Either way, I've said "No" explaining my reasons, but DH still persists - bringing the subject up at ever available opportunity. He's claiming that I'm being over protective and old-fashioned! Old fashioned I dispute - I don't have a problem with them having earrings, I just want it to be their decision. As for 'over-protective' am I not right in fearing the worst? Who hasn't heard horror stories about toddlers and ripped earlobes? And that's girls - how much more boisterous are boys!! Unless there's the parent of boisterous, "earring'd" toddler out there who can tell me otherwise - all I need is reassurance that I'm not out of order. Rita

I'm 14 and i have my ear's pierced 4 times plus the cartlidge on the left and my belly botton... none of them hurt AT ALL! but i have one problem! when i got my belly botton pierced they didn't let me choose the ring so they put a hoop with a ball in the middle through it... and i can't get the dumb thing out! i need to clean it and i dunno how to take it out at all! i've tried to unscrew it but it's not working! HELP!

-- Anonymous, April 30, 2001

Amanda Harrison, I got my cartilage pierced with a ring and a ball, my belly button too. I haven't taken the belly one out yet but the cartilage one doesn't unscrew. You have to pop out the ball. You kinda push on the ring in one direction and the ball in the other direction. Its difficult but it should come out. I assume the belly one is the same way. I have a question about the belly ring. When I first got it done, the inside of my belly button had little red dots that itched in it. Now it still itches now and then, about 2 month later, and just the pierced areas are red. Is this normal? Alex

OK, I really want to get my belly botton pierced but i'm 16 and I know if I ask my parents I'll have to wait to long til I hear a Yes. So my question is...does anyone know if it is somewhat safe to pierce your own belly botton. Someone told me that when you get it done they actually take some of the stuff inside your stomach out so that there is actually a whole. I'm not sure but someone please write me back and tell me if I can pierce my belly botton by myself!! Thanks so much!!

i got the cartiliage done with a gun when i was 15. didn't hurt at all. the other ones i was stupidly drunk and peirced 15 holes (NO LIE) into my ears with just a stud. drunk, didn't hurt. now i have an eybrow, nipple (OUCH) and navel ring. and i hope to go for the labaret in about 2 weeks. and maybe a 3rd tattoo. not sure what i want though.

about the labaret, i've been searching and searching, i want to know what the pain factor is on this one. i heard it's not too bad, but that's what i heard about the navel and it hurt like a bitch. any feedback i'd love it!

thanks

.. Don't feel so alone. I don't even have my cartilage pierced. All I have is 3 holes on each ear, and my left nostril. Fun.. did the nostril myself..

Ok, i am 12 years old now.. i got BOTH of my cartilages pierced when i was 11!! it barely hurts at all.. i also have my lobes pierced. I got them done when i was 3 and then i refused to wear earings and i got them redone when i was 5. It didnt even bother me. So all u older people theres nothing to be scared of. And when i turn 13 im getting my belly button done. It's ok just go for it

I have the cartilage picerced two times. The higher one didn't hurt to get but I think I was so scared I couldn't feel it. The second one hurt though and it took longer to heal. I have both of my lobes pierced twice and that didn't hurt at all. I have the piece of skin that sticks out in the middle of your ear, its connected to your face, pierced and that didn't really hurt but it stung for a while. Then the last one on my ears I have the middle of the outside part of the ear pierced and that hurt quite a bit, out of all of them I think it hurt the most. I'm getting my belly botton pierced VERY soon...so if you have any info on the pain and stuff like that please email me.

I got my ears done when I was five ears old. I was scared, but I wanted it because everyone else had it done. Then later I got my cartilage pierced. It didn't hurt, it just pinched a little after. After my cartilage was pierced the lady who did it said I turned really pale. Then a year later I got my other cartilage pierced. It didn't hurt at all. For my 16th birthday I got my belly button done. Now, that hurt to me. Most people I talked too, said it didn't hurt. But after it was finished it hurt me for about 2 hours. I still have it, but if it happens to close I will never get it done again. I have a total of 5 piercings in both ears and my belly button. I don't think I want anymore. =)

There is a lot of people who do not have their cartlage done. I do. I have triples on my lobes though too. And today I'm getting my belly- button peirced. I'm 14. what do you have done?

-- Anonymous, January 03, 2002

Well, I just got two cartilage piercings in my left ear two days ago. One is near the top and the other is in the center. No lobe piercings yet, which most people see as odd. I plan on getting many more, namely 3 lobes in each ear, helix and anti-tragus in my right ear, and maybe another couple of cartilages. In addition, I'd love 2 eyebrows and a labret. I had the cartilages done with a gun, though I was aware of the dangers. No problems yet. (Knock on wood!) Didn't really hurt, more like a sharp pinch. The top one is a little more tender than the middle one. Oh, and they hurt bad to sleep on. But They truly look great! I recomend them for anyone, minus guys. I just don't like that.

I am 17 and had my ear pierced when i was about 4. At 14 I got my eye- brow pierced after a long debate with grandmother i took it out after she paid me 50$ then it was offto my toung at 15 which i dont incourage others to get done, first off your teath will evetually fall out and you van chip your teath. i then had my lipit pierced (athe inbetween piercing off the lip and the librea) and i am now about to pierce my own nipple which is a NO NO if anyone else thinks about it dont do it. It is just not safe. Well to conclude express your self the way you want and do it healthy, have fun.

I am a 19 year old female, and I never thought anything about piercings or tattoos til I was about 15. I was really into shrooms and fairies. I know it sounds odd. Well I turned 16 got my liscense and I was off to get my first tattoo. I got a Shroom with a fairy on it, everyone that has seen it loves it. Then I got addicted to them I now have 5 tattoos all done before I turned 18. :)

The day I turned 18 I was off to get a piercing. I decided on my nose, and that was so painful no joke. When I got home my Mom looked like she wanted to ring my neck. But soon enough she got over it, and I ended up taking it out. But that wasn't the last of it. Amazingly, I went back and had it done again, a few months later.

I got addicted to piercings the same way I did with the tattoos. I went and had my eye brow done after that, but still I was too chicken to go through with the tounge, I did it though and I still have it. Now my nose and my eyebrow are gone, I did my belly button also but I took that out with in a few weeks it was so not cool.

Seriously think about your piercings and tattoos way before you get them. They do cost a lot of money and it has to be something yout willing to live with for the rest of your life. My tounge I have had for now 2 years and I have had no problems what so ever with it. Some times people look at me funny but then again the looks were worse when I had all my other piercings in. LOL :)

JUST THINK BEFORE YOU DO ANYTHING CRAZY! EVERYTHING IS PERMEMNANT THERE WILL ALWAYS BE A SCAR OF SOME KIND NO MATTER WHAT YOU THINK!!!

I am almost 20 and do not have my cartilage pierced. This is because I wanted to get it done a while ago and I asked my Parents. They told me to ask my doctor and if my doctor said ok, it was ok with them (they are helping me with college and stuff so I cannot afford to tick them off, so I asked). My doctor told me that if the cartilage piercing gets infected I would have to go to the hospital to get anitbiotics through an IV. Plus, she says they can get infected easily due to the lack of blood vessels in that area AND they can STRETCH OUT in less than five years! I decided against it. My roomate was considering getting her tongue pierced, and guess what her doctor told her? If it gets infected it can cause an abscess in her BRAIN! So she decided agaisnt it. Now I am considering getting my navel pierced... but I am worried about health risks and I don't really want to ask my doctor AGAIN! I heard from someone that they can cause infections in major organs... is this true??? Please email me and put Navel Piercing as the subject line!

I'm 19 now...I got a cartilage piercing in my right ear when I went on a school trip to Canada when I was 16 (you only have to be 16 w/o a parent's permission in Canada)...and of course, everyone was doing it. I know...not a good reason to do anything...but I love it. Of course, I got in a lot of trouble with my parents because of it...but I still have it to this day. Just a couple weeks ago, I got a cartilage in my left ear and my lobes. I had to take my earrings out of my lobes tonight however.=( They got so swollen, that I could hardly see my earrings...and they were almost impossible to get out. Oh well...at least I have my 2 cartilages. I also got my belly button done last November. It was kind of a spontaneous thing one night...I got that and my friend got a tattoo. It was sore (like any hole through your body will be) for a good month or so after I got it...but now it doesn't hurt at all...and I absolutely love it.

I have both lobes pierced twice, although I don't wear the second ones much. I also have my left cartiledge pierced. I had it done years ago, had to go to a tatoo shop cause no one else would do it, that one was better cause he used a hollow needle, it took out a chunk and left an actual hole, so there was no pressure on the earring and it healed up nicely! My dad gave birth to kittens and made me take it out when he found out!! He would check daily to see if it was closing up too. I was 18 with very controlling parents. So I let it go. Now I have had it done again since I was 23. 2nd time around was in another tatoo shop, guy used a gun. It healed up ok, but it took about a year before I could take it out overnight. It would be real hard to get back in in the morning. Now I go weeks, or months with out wearing it and its perfectly fine when I put it back in. Plan to get bellybutton done one day, but I'm kinda fat right now, just doesn't seem right to do it now! And besides, yuck!! a fat girl with a peirced belly button!! I don't think so !!

It takes up to 12 months for your cartilage to completely heal. There is no way it would have healed in three months or any sooner. That is a very sensitive part of your body when it comes to piercing and it could be deadly. Read up on and you will find out more about it. They should have told you that when you had it pierced.

I am 14 and want to get my belly button pierced. I thought it was all cool and everything and then i start reading up on it and now it sounds kinda scary.... I only have my ears pierced and i got those done when i was 8 so i dont really remember any pain. Can someone tell my how much it hurts, whats the worse damage it can do, and if they regretted it?

I'm 19 years old.... I had my first 3 sets of lobe earrings by the time I was 5... so I guess I didn't really have a say in whether I wanted them or not... but I love them... so I got one more in my left ear and 2 more in my right. I have cartilage piercings on both ears when I was 12... it didn't hurt much at all. Back in October I got my tongue pierced... the initial piercing hurt, but it was fine afterwards. It was swollen for about 4 days, and I had trouble pronouncing any word with an "r" in it, but it was fun. A couple nights ago I got my eyebrow pierced... it only hurt as much as getting your ear done, but boy did it bleed a lot!!! I'm not saying eyeryone will, and most people don't... but with as much blood as I lost the other night, I probably could have donated it to an ER full of trauma patients!!! It was worth the scarifice though.... cause I like it!

i just turned 20. i had my right eyebrow done when i was 18, it fell out 2 months later. then 1 month ago they tried to re-pierce it but realized the other people kinda f***** up and now i have nothing but scar tissue. i have my left side done now, but i have some issues. it has a bump on it, but nothing comes out of it, it does not hurt at all, nor did it hurt when it went in (ok the piercing didn't hurt, but the clamp was kinda irritating, and it bled for like 20 minutes because he could not get the ball closed, but i figured it was infected it would have fallen out or at least hurt me a tad) tell me i will be ok lol, i just wanted to know if thats the normal bodies reaction or if i will get infected and die lol. i love it soo much, maybe its just me, but i feel naked without it, anyone got a towel?????????????

Im 16 and i have 4 piercings in my right lobe, 3 in my left lobe and 2 up the top of my left ear, i have my nose pierced, my belly button pierced and my tongue done. I have a tattoo on my right hip and a tattoo on my left shoulder blade and i would just like 2 say that none of these hurt, the tats a lil more than the piercings. the most painful piercing was my belly button, but i didnt hurt more than a blood test, just felt like a wee pinch. My nose made my eyes water, but it didnt hurt it just kinda felt really tight. 6 of my lobe piercings i did myself, one of them is a little wonky but only i can tell. n e wayz, i love piercings and tats and ive had a fascination with needles for years and years, i love pain and i love needles, i cant wait 4 anotha one :)

I had to wait till I was 13 to get my ears peirced. Within a year, I had 4 more holes in each ear. Since my 18th birthday, when I could sign for myself, I've had 2 cartilage peircings-both in the left ear. I got my belly button peirced and with 2 weeks of doing that I got my tongue peirced. I'd like to get an industrial next. Then I think I'll be done with peircings.

Hello. I'm fifteen years old. I was just being curious about how you would get your labret peirced? What do they peirce it with? Pain factor? Cleaning instructions? I'm not a weirdo so I won't get it done until I am old enough (20 or so). I'm a piano player and I was also wondering, "will it affect my appearance in any way"? At what stage of the healing process can the "bar" be changed? What 'gague'is it? Please E-Mail me at the address listed. Thank you.

I'm piercing my ears myself today. I have a gun kit and everyone's telling me to leave my cartiledge alone and I'm debating it still. I have a friend who's a piercer and said he will do it in a few weeks so I might just wait. Actually i'm going to redo my labret & get a madonna & an industrial..then wait for that to heal and get a double cartiledge. Unless I do it by myself today. hmm.

I have one hole in my lobes so far plus my eyebrow, tongue, and both nipples.

I also have three tattoos. 1 on each wrist and 1 on my leg.

The first time I did it i I was 10 and now I am 14. I also have my belly botton and that didn't hurt at all either. I say go for it it's really trendy and it looks cute. Lena

Alrite your not the only twentysomething person in america with out a cart peircing, i don't know why people won't get it most people say because it will hurt too bad but what doesn't besides the worst part is the initial poke the rest is a peice of cake! it's nothing try getting both your nipples, your clit, the top and bottom of your belly button both your ear lobes and both your inner ears done! think about that, so what is your next question

I am 14 and i have my ears pierced twice on both sides and one cartilage piercing and i was terrified to get it because all of my friends said it was going to hurt but it didn't ay all. I also had my bellbotton pierced twice but both times i did it myself it did not hurt but the first one i did i only had in fo 4 days and it got infected and the second one was in for 6 months ubtil i had to go and live with my mom so i had to take it out.

Well I got my first set of earing when i was 8 years old and it didnt hurt i was SO proud to get them Done, then when i was 15 i got my upper cartlage peirced and i loved it it was the fashion then it got infected so i took it out i think a month later i got it peirced again then took it out again for school then got it again i wont carry on but i have had it peirced 5 times because it kept on getting infected or i had to take it out for school. But its fine now at the age of 17, after i got my upper ear peirced on my left hand side i got my second pair of earings, then after that i decided i wanted my Belly button peirced which was when i was 15 also. that didnt hurt much at all it felt like a shapr sting then it was over. i tend to love the sensation of the needle going through Im not crazy but i started to love peircings. my belly button bled QUITE a BIT for 3 days but all turned GOOD and 2 years later i still have it, after my belly ring i got ANOTHER pair of earing which left me with 3 pairs on the Lower Lobe and One in my cartlage on the left hand side...

2 years later i decided i wanted a tongue ring which DOESNT HURT LEAST PAINFUL PEIRCING but it scared me when it swelled up as i hate the feeling of not breathing and i thought i would choke so i took it out then decided i still watned one so got it re peirced 3 months later which i went to my peircer and hecoudlnt get the needle through properly so it bled QUITE a bit. but it is positioned better on my tongue and i love it....

after that i decided iw anted a LITTLE nose stud to i went to the peircer and got that done with the NEEDLE. its crazy some places do nose studs with a gun which leads to VERY bad results. but i had mine done properly adn its great but i must say it left me teary eyed and it hurt like hell but thena gain all people react differently...

Today i just got my INDUSTRIAL done.. quite nervous i was but i wanted somthing not many people have so i went ahead and got it, it throbs alot and it hurt when i got it done but not that much. although i guess people handle the pain differently.. in 4 days i am goign to get my second bely peircing ont he lower belly button whcih i thikn looks stunning, i wouldnt mind getting a second tongue ring but after that that will be all for me i dont want to looklike a metal head where a compas will point to me but i have 12 peircings and i am happy with them.. 3 pairs on lower lobe 1 cartlage one on upper ear on right hand side industrial peircing on upper lobe diagonally across upper ear lobe, which = to 2 peircings 1 nose stud a tongue ring and a belly ring.. peircings to me look stunning the wilder you go the more stunning and interesting it is.. dont be scared guys just go for it.......

Hey everyone, i need some advice! Ok, so i want to get my belly button pierced. But i don't know if it's a good idea. I am a competitive swimmer and only get two months break in the summer from swimming. Other wise i swim every day, 10 months of the year. So is it a bad idea to get my belly button pierced if i can only give it 2 months to heal??? because i heard that you aren't supposed to go into a pool until the piercing has healed completely. also my mother said that if it is going to get infected she doesn't want me to get it done. Is it expected that my belly button piercing will get infected? Does it have to get infected to heal? I already have my ears pierced and they have never been infected. i luv the site and it has been quite helpful, but i would be even more grateful if anyone could just email me and tell about the healing process of belly button piercings...and also if it is a bad idea to go into a pool 2 months after getting by belly pierced. Any response will be SOOOOOOO helpful Thanx ALOT! DEEDEE

Twentysomething- had L cartlidge pierced with a gun in a mall when i was 18. didn't hurt, healed fine. i got my belly button pierced when i was 21 (hurt like a BITCH) and after about a year, it got infected, i took it out and will never have it done again. i did take the jewelry out of my belly and put it in my cartlidge piercing though, manually gauging it up from a normal lobe-sized pirecing to a standard body piercing size. again, no problems. Last September, I got my R cartlidge pierced by a professional body piercer using the same size gauge in my L ear (more painful, but still not too bad). It was fine for the first 4 or 5 months, then there was a weird "growth" around the piercing. I went to a dermatologist, who gave me some topical cream and anitbiotics. at first it cleared up, but after treatment stopped, the growth is back and even bigger. I'm about to start antibiotic treatment again, but this can't keep happening. My doctor said I may be allergic to the stainless steel jewelry in that ear and i may have to try something else. Any thoughts on this or similar experiences? Titanium jewelry perhaps? -A

i got my cartilidge peirced about a month and a half ago and it now has a little bump or bubble right by the piercing, right next to the earring. i have been cleaning it but it is not going away, when i wake up it has crusty stuff on it. gross! my sister got the same thing but she just took her's out and it went away, i don't want to take mine out, i really like it. has anyone had this? will it go away? what should i do???

-- Anonymous, July 24, 2002

I have 13 ear piercings altogether starting at the lobes and moving up. I have two cartilidge piercings in my left and one in the right. The little bump things that come up are called keloids. It's because the skin that gets ripped during the process of piercings sticks out or something like that. It will go away after a period of time. Just bare with it. I'm not sure how long it takes. It probably depends on the length of the healing time. I'm going to get more mods once I graduate high school. (rising Junior) Bellybutton, tongue, labret, and more ear projects currently on list.

I had my lobes pierced pro 3 times and my cartilage pierced 1 time pro. Then, I decided I wanted my other ear's cartilage pierced but I am 17 with an overprotective mom so I did it myself which hurt like hell so I decided to listen to some Fuel music to take my mind off of the pain. First time I pierced my cartilage by myself, I didn't wear gloves and I used a smaller needle than the piercing earring left over from the lobe piercings so I had to actually pierce it two times to get the stud in (ouch.). About 4 weeks after, I was bored so I pierced my lobes one more time (practically painless) and then my cartilage on the otherside one more time for a totally of 2 (let me tell you, THAT one hurt....I had it in wrong so I had to shove it through again which didn't feel too happy ) This time around I switched my 'distraction music' to a more hard rock sound like Deadsy and Godsmack....that helped more than Fuel. So this time, I used gloves, steralizing stuff, cleansed my ears 2x and used the piercing earring to pierce so I wouldn't have to pierce them twice which hurts like a bitch. Just to let everyone know, I am a wimp. I can't take pain but I live with it and I'm addicted to piercings. I'm getting my nose pierced soon and I was wondering how that goes...so, email me with your experiences..thanks.

I got my belly pierced October of last year (2001). Originally, I was supposed to get my ears pierced but I realized my parents would kill me if they found out so I decided to get my belly pierced instead coz I can easily hide it. My brother accompanied me and I admit that I got a little nervous. But I still went through with it. It didn't hurt a bit but afterwards I felt little pain but it was tolerable. It took 5 months for my piercing to heal. Anyways, I didn't regret my piercing and I think it's kinda cool. Now, I collect belly accessories and after a few months I still got my ears pierced.

I've always wanted my ears pierced a lot since I was younger, and I pierced my ears a number of times since I was maybe 14, but not every time ended with a new permanent hole in my ear, since in some of the holes I ended up taking out the earrings too early. I first did the holes myself, about 2 or 3 times in each ear, but I could never get them straight, so I'd wear them just for a week or two and take them out so they wouldn't heal crooked. Eventually I got 2 in each ear lobe that turned out ok, so those holes are in there for good now. I also tried doing my cartilege myself a couple times (which barely hurt either), but I never had the patience to let it heal all the way. Finally this summer I just decided I'd get them done at the mall (not the best wayI know, but its cheap an went ok) to make it easier on me, so I got 3 more in my left earlobe and 2 in my right, so I'll have 9 holes total. Its a lot for a guy to have (and yes, I'm straight), but I finally decided to screw what anyone else thinks since I love having them. I might still get more in my ear lobes one of these days if theres room, and maybe I'll try the cartilege again too. I also think its sexy when girls have some piercings (except lips and eyebrows, those just look wierd to me), so if your debating getting something done, go for it!

I am 15 years old. I have had my belly button, my eyebrow, and my ears pierced 4 times on one side and 7 on the other. And I just got my tounge pierced. I didn't think that any of it hurt at all either

Nikki, about the nose ring, i did it myself and it didn't hurt at all (i also did my two ear piercings). It all depends on how much pain you can take. Base it on other piercings, did they hurt? If yes, it'll prob. hurt, but hey, who knows? Good luck! -Bri

OK i just have one thing to say, any kind of "do it ur self peircing" is a very bad idea havent u guys ever heard of ppl dying from that shit crist ur crazy if u do it ur self. I have my tounge both nipples and 17 ear peircing and they were ALL done by a professional, just pay the 10-100 dollars and get it done dont tyr to cut corners if u dont have the money u dont deserve the piercing.

peace, keep on grooving

My parents had my lobes done when I was about 4 or 5, and I've just had them ever since. When I was 13, I got my first cartledge peircing, with a gun in my left ear. Later that year I got one in my right cartledge, but it closed up. Since then I've gotten 2 more in my left ear. Then, last Wednesday for my 16th birthday, I got 2 more. So I've got a total 6 in my left ear and 1 in my right. Picture of the left that only shows 5 of them can be found here: http://15.paper- cut.net/ear.gif All of my ear peircings have been done with guns, and I've had no problems.
