My nose and navel piercing story


After getting my ears pierced I decided that I was in love with piercings. I am 15 and got my navel pierced in February 2014. I got it done at Hidden Hands Piercing Studio which was the only place that would do it for a 15 year old. I did a lot of research to make sure that they were clean. I had to have a parent to sign papers, but mine were supportive of my decisions so it all worked out. The day before I got my drivers permit so I was not really focused on getting it done.

My piercer was very experienced and steady. When I had the piercing done, I had so much adrenaline running through me that I hardly felt it which is good 😉 She didn’t use a clamp which worried me a bit but it turned out fine. She also took the needle out and then put the barbell in. Afterwards it started to hurt a little more but a few days later it was fine and only hurt when I bent in weird angles. I got a sheet that had all the information that I needed on it which was very helpful.

Unfortunately I was stupid enough to not listen to the cleaning instructions and I got a healing bump from too much saline (the salt mixture they use to clean it). 6 months later I went back to get my nostril pierced which hurt even less than the navel piercing. I got it done at the same place but had a different piercer. He was a lot better and more experienced than the last one which I loved. He had all sorts of weird piercings and it was interesting to look at them. This is the third day I have had my nose stud and I love it ❗
