ANSWER #15 of 73

I have a lot of questions about belly button piercings

1. how bad is the pain 1-10 (10 being really bad)?

for me ? I felt the needle go through, but I have low pain tolerance, so maybe that's why because all of my friends said it was nothing for them.

2. does it hurt more if your really skinny or bigger or does it matter?

doesn't matter.

3. how much does it usually cost?

mine cost (I had it done two years ago) I think $70 (CDN) ?

4. is there an age limit?

sixteen without parent's consent.

5. how fast is it over with?

it depends on the piercer.
mine was quick. like a minute

6. could it make me sick?

depends on your pain tolerance, and how you are with needles and piercings.

7. should I look @ the needle?

I think it would be kinda hard too..

8. can it get infected easily?

yeah. anything from fabric softeners, to the type of material shirts/dresses you wear can irritate it.

9. can I go swimming after?

I would recommend you to not go swimming in pools (the chlorine will dry it out), hot tubs, lakes, beaches, ponds, rivers, oceans.. (bacteria can cause infection). I didn't go swimming until three months after when I was allowed to change it.

10. how long do I have to wait until I can change it?

I had to wait three months. every piercer has a different time-arrangement, so yeah.


ANSWER #16 of 73

These are my experiences, but everyone's is different.

1. how bad is the pain 1-10 (10 being really bad)?

Answer: I thought it was around a two, seriously I thought the most painful part was when he cleaned me belly button out with the q-tip before he pierced it.

2. does it hurt more if your really skinny or bigger or does it matter?

Answer: I don't think it really matters.

3. how much does it usually cost?

Answer: mine cost me 70, that was including taxes and I got three pieces of jewelry. one to put in at the shop, and two to change it with once it was healed.

4. is there an age limit?

Answer: usually have to be around 16 years of age, some shops won't do it unless your 18.

5. how fast is it over with?

Answer: It was fast, while I was waiting for him to fix the clamp, my best friend who was there with me looked at me and said "It's done" and I didn't believe her at first aha. What I thought was the clamp being fixed was actually the needle going through my skin.

6. could it make me sick?

Answer: all depends on how you handle pain and how much you have yourself worked up, after you get it done just sit up straight for a few minutes before getting up and walking just in case.

7. should I look @ the needle?

Answer: no. trying to look at the needle with make you tense up which is not a good thing. some piercers won't even let you look at it with a mirror until it's finished.

8. can it get infected easily?

Answer: if you don't wash it properly. Salt water washes and stuff are not necessary, ask a doctor, just wash with your regular soap, don't change soaps just to clean it (or start using a new anti-bacterial soap), finding out you have an allergy to a new soap while cleaning out the wound wouldn't be fun.

9. can I go swimming after?

Answer: It is recommended that you wait a few months before hand, diseases are easily transmitted through water especially if you have a wound, common sense would tell you that. Try to get the piercing in the winter time, that way it will be all healed up by the time summer rolls around.

10. how long do I have to wait until I can change it?

Answer: This all depends on your healing rate, anywhere between 5 to 6 months should be good. That is about the time it takes for the new skin to grow through. Trying to change it any earlier could damage the new skin's process actually making the healing time longer.

About a 1 if that. I didn't really feel it at all.
2. does it hurt more if your really skinny or bigger or does it matter?
I went with a thin friend and I'm bigger. I think it hurt her worse. But I can't say that it was because she was thinner.

I think this one has been well answered.

It was amazingly fast. A matter of seconds. When he was done I said "that's it???"

I guess if you get yourself worked up.

I say no. But I don't see how you could without tensing your ab muscles, which wouldn't be a good idea. You are lying flat on your back, so just relax.

ANSWER #23 of 73

hey, I'm 15 and I got my bellybutton pierced in december, on my birthday. I don't think it really hurt at all and most of the people I know said that it doesn't hurt. Except for the people who did it theirselves, they said it hurt. It took me about 5 minutes, and my friend 2 minutes because my skin is soo thick, & I'm skinny. but my other friend is kinda big, and she got hers done, and she said it didn't hurt her at all. you just have to keep it really clean! they are so easy to get infected, but I don't find it hurts that bad... I've kind of become use to it! hahhaa.

ANSWER #26 of 73

1. how bad is the pain 1-10 (10 being really bad)?
0 - I got mine pierced for my 15th birthday. it was completely painless. It felt like a little pinch. and it was over. no pain what so ever. But, It can vary with other people, but I would definately say the pain would be no more than a 3.

2. does it hurt more if your really skinny or bigger or does it matter?
it's hurt more the skinnier you are, because there isn't enough skin there to actually grasp, so you have to go deeper, and the further past the epidermis you get, the worse the pain. But. It shouldn't unless you are SUPER SUPER SUPER skinny like a pole.

3. how much does it usually cost?
body piercings are usually around 40 bucks.

4. is there an age limit?
at most body piercing/tattoo shops you have to be 18 without a parent's consent. or have under 18 if you have parent/gaurdian present.

5. how fast is it over with?
it seriously takes all of about 5 seconds.

6. could it make me sick?
no.

7. should I look @ the needle?
I watched the whole thing. it depends on whether or not you like that type of thing. if you are super nervous about it, I wouldn't look.

8. can it get infected easily?
depends on how well you take care of it. DONT USE ALCOHOL! I repeat! DONT USE ALCOHOL! It will dry it up really quick! And you won't be able to change the ring for a LONG time, and it can cause an infection too.

9. can I go swimming after?
not at least for two months, that's how long it takes to heal enough to change and be normal. after 6 months its completely healed.

10. how long do I have to wait until I can change it?
I waited two months, and when I got the other ring through it oozed out blood. I would recoment at least 2-3 months.


ANSWER #27 of 73

1. how bad is the pain 1-10 (10 being really bad)? Like a 1-2

2. does it hurt more if your really skinny or bigger or does it matter? I don't think so, I'm average probably on the bigger side and it didn't really hurt

3. how much does it usually cost? Mine cost about $65(CND) jewelery included

4. is there an age limit? 16 years of age most places

5. how fast is...it over with? Mine took like 2 seconds literally.

6. could it make me sick? They make you eat something or drink something with sugar in it so you don't get sick or pas out

7. should I look @ the needle? I wanted to but it was practically impossible, you lay down and its really hard to look. Just make sure they take it out of a package.

8. can it get infected easily? Mine never but it pusses clear/whitish for like 1-2 months afterwards. Just make sure its not green and clean it 3-4 times a day with the stuff they give you (no peroxide or rubbing alcohol)

9. can I go swimming after? Ask your piercer its like a month or something

10. how long do I have to wait until I can change it? I got mine done two months ago and I'm still waiting for it to heal completely with the same jewelery it was pierced with. Usually 3 months or when it's healed completely.

Good luck :)

My lip piercing hurt 10X worse. Just remember, everyone handles pain differently. If someone says a piercing didn't hurt, they are lying. It might not have affected them much, but it had to of hurt them.

:]

ANSWER #39 of 73

1. It really depends on your pain tolerance. It hurt me. lol so I'll say 7-8.
2. My cousin is super skinny and she said it hurt and a fat friend of mine said that it didn't hurt. I'm inbetween and it hurt me, so it's really about your pain tolerance. Size doesn't matter.
3. It depends on the place and the jewelry you choose. Mines was $35.
4. You have to be 18 w/o your parent's consent. But as long as your parents approve you should be good.
5. It's complete in less than a minute. They move pretty quickly.
6. If it gets infected, yea.
7. You need to watch EVERYTHING the piercer does. Watch them wash their hands, get a new needle, have clean supplies, and clean your belly button before they do the piercing.
8. If you don't properly clean it, then yeah. Mines did because I cleaned it too much. A little peroxide cleared it up though. But go to a dr. if you get an infection or think you have one.
9. Chlorine may irritate it the first few weeks or months. Ask the piercer. I was told to do it in the winter so by the summer it should be healed enough to change it.
10. I waited 4 months since I got an infection. When the swelling and pus stops, you should be able to change it. But be quick.


ANSWER #40 of 73

1. About a 3
2. Doesnt matter
3. Mine was about $40
4. I got mine done when i was 13, but without parental consent, 16.

6. Usually drink or eat something before so you dont get sick.
7. If your really nervous, dont.
8. Only if you dont clean it properly.

10. Usually 2-3 months.

9. can I go swimming after? not immediatly. I forget how long, the piercer should tell you though.
10. how long do I have to wait until I can change it? I actually changed mine like two weeks after, thats when I got the balls to take it out. it didnt hurt, my only mistake was putting a fake gold ring in and it irritated it.

ANSWER #46 of 73

1. The pain will be about a 4-5 , It all depends on how you take pain, but it always hurts less then you think.

2. I think It would hurt a bit more if you were thinner, but I am not sure.

3. At my piercers, it says it is 43 dollars, plus the jewelry, so about 48 $

4. Age limit? Well, I think any piercer will do it if you have a parent's permission, and the parent is there with you. I think some places, you would have to be 16 or older.

5. It's surprising how fast it is. When I got my lip done, I asked him to go really fast, so when he put the needle through, it only hurt for.. A second, and I am a big wimp when it comes to needles. I think it would only hurt when the piercer tightens the hoop, if you get a hoop.

6. I think It MAY make you sick, if you take really bad care of it.

7. No, you shouldn't look at the needle. It may get you all worked up, and you may flinch and the piercer might mess up. I didn't look at the needle. Keep your eyes shut, or don't look at your belly.

8. I think It can get infected easily, so take good care of it. Wash it about.. Twice a day.

9. Definatly not. Public pools or lakes have lots of germs, and you can get an infection. Wait until the piercing is healed.

10. Six weeks to four months. Four months for it to fully heal. And yes, go back to him so he can change it.

ANSWER #51 of 73

Heyy :]
I've had my bellybutton pierced since I was 12, so i'll fill this out with all my knowledge.

1. how bad is the pain 1-10 (10 being really bad)?
- For me, It was a 2 or 3. The fact I was thinking it would hurt really bad was misleading, so don't be nervous :]
2. does it hurt more if your really skinny or bigger or does it matter?
- I wouldn't think it would matter. I've never heard of someone having a fat bellybutton, hahah.
3. how much does it usually cost?
- If I remember right, mine was 40 dollars. But don't go by price, go by how you feel about the atmosphere and the person piercing you. Shop around and see your options.
4. is there an age limit?
- At the place I went to, all I needed was my moms signature. But i'm sure they don't want a 7 year old walking in to get pierced, lol.
5. how fast is it over with?
- The clamping takes the most time, and the piercing itself is over in mere seconds.
6. could it make me sick?
- If you fail to clean it afterwards, it can get very infected. Also, if the needle isn't sterile, it can be fatal. But piercing places are required to be healthy and clean and stuff, so it shouldn't be a matter of concern.
7. should i look @ the needle?
- It all depends on your preferences. I looked when I got mine done, only because I can't stand not knowing what's going on. Some people get queasy by looking. Do what makes you comfortable.
8. can it get infected easily?
Extremely. I'd pick up a bottle of Bactine from your local grocery store, it's a low priced cleaning and anti-infection liquid you rub on the pierced area with a q-tip. Some places give you cleaning solutions. Clean it daily, and do not take the peircing out until it is fully healed.
9. can i go swimming after?
You might want to wait a few days, until the infection is under control and the pain goes down a little.
10. how long do i have to wait until I can change it?
Until it is healed, they say. But who wants to wait months? I changed mine as soon as I could move it around in all directions and yank on it without it hurting at all. It didn't get infected after changing it then.

I hope this helped :]


ANSWER #52 of 73

1. how bad is the pain 1-10 (10 being really bad)? The pain is about a 1 or 2. ITS not as bad as people say. I had my top done, but it got ripped out [so dont wear dangley belly rings till its healed] and juss a few days ago I got my bottem done.

2. does it hurt more if your really skinny or bigger or does it matter? Im sure it doesnt matter. Different people have different pain levels.

3. how much does it usually cost? Mine cost $30. Usually the vary on the type of belly ring you get.

4. is there an age limit? You have to be at least of the age 15-17 with parent consent. I did get my top done at age 16, but it ripped. However I am 18. I didnt need that parent consent this time.

5. how fast is it over with? Well the piercing with get ready, tell you to take a deep breath and let out, so soon as your done letting out your breath, its all over with.

6. could it make me sick? I highly recommend you not look at the needle. Look up at the ceailing or close your eyes and think of something else.

7. should I look @ the needle? Absolutly not. You will get freaked and not go thru with it, or you will be completely scared and uptight when the needle goes thru, then it will hurt like a mofo.

8. can it get infected easily? yes. Clean it with sea salt and water. No rubbing alcohol and no hydrogen peroxcide or anything of that nature. never use table salt and water. Only use what you peircer gives you, or sea salt and puritfied water, and antibacterial soap.

9. can I go swimming after? Wait until its healed. Soft skin doesnt heal fast.

10. how long do I have to wait until I can change it? You could wait 2 weeks, but it will be sore to chage. So wait a month. Before you change it, clean the area, clean the new belly ring, stick it in, and clean agian. NEVER leave you bely ring out for a long period of time. it could be a btch getting back in.


ANSWER #53 of 73

1. how bad is the pain 1-10 (10 being really bad)?
everyone has a different pain tolerance. for me it was only about a 3.

2. does it hurt more if your really skinny or bigger or does it matter?
if you don't have a lot of skin above your belly button they may have to clamp it and I've heard that it hurts worse when you get it clamped.

3. how much does it usually cost?
anywhere between $30-$60 depending on where you get it pierced at.

4. is there an age limit?
only if you don't have a parent with you.

5. how fast is it over with?
just a matter of seconds. first, you have to tuck your shirt under your bra so they can draw the dot where it will be even then you lay down on the table, they stick a needle through, put the ring in, then your done! then they lecture you on how important it is to take care of it and blah blah.. lol

6. could it make me sick?
if your allergic to the type of ring or something.

7. should I look @ the needle?
I looked at mine. haha. it doesn't really matter.. I don't have a fear of needles like a lot of people do.

8. can it get infected easily?
if you don't take care of it.

9. can I go swimming after?
your not supposed to go swimming in pools with chlorine until it heals. you can swim in saline pools, but if you do go swimming in chlorified water, I recommend you put a band-aid or some kind of cover over it.

10. how long do I have to wait until I can change it?
anywhere from 1-6 months depending on how fast yours heals.


ANSWER #54 of 73

1. how bad is the pain 1-10 (10 being really bad)? if the piercer is experienced, it's not bad at all; 3-4?
2. does it hurt more if your really skinny or bigger or does it matter? I wouldn't know because I'm not both of those? haha but I doubt it makes a difference.
3. how much does it usually cost? it depends on where you get it done, mine was $60.
4. is there an age limit? under 18 you have to have parental consent.
5. how fast is it over with? super quick if you have a piercer who knows what they're doing.
6. could it make me sick? uhh, I don't think so? unless you're one of those people that freak out easily. then possibly.
7. should I look @ the needle? it's not a good idea, because it'll probably freak you out even more, and you shouldn't get all worked up and scared.
8. can it get infected easily? if you don't clean it enough and don't listen to the after care procedures.
9. can I go swimming after? I didn't go swimming in a pool for about a month after I got it done. but you can go to the beach after about 2 weeks and it should be fine.
10. how long do I have to wait until I can change it? they say at least 2 months, but I waited 6 months and I think that's better.

ANSWER #56 of 73

Okay so, I personally haven't gotten my belly button done, but my two best friends are. Yesterday, I went to get my cartilage pierced and my friends asked about belly button piercings so I hope my information helps you.

1. According the Robin (the piercing expert, whose had her belly button pierced) said it hurts less than getting the cartilage pierced. Your belly button is really soft tissue so it would only be like a pinch.

2. Honestly it doesn't matter whether your skinny or bigger because everyone has soft tissue around their belly button.

3. There is really no set cost for a belly button piercing. You would have to go to the piercing place where you are thinking about getting it done and find out their prices.

4. From what I've heard there is not an age limit. It is probably best if your over 13. Depending on the piercing place's rules you might have to get a parent to sign for you. At the place I went to if you were over 14 years old you didn't need a parent to sign for you.

5. Well, they pretty much just stick the needle through and that is about it. So, it is pretty fast.

6. The only way it would make you sick is if it was infected. But, even that wouldn't make you physically sick.

7. Proper piercing places would explain and show to you during the process that all needles/other tools/rings are from brand new packages that have been sterilized in a machine like they use at a hospital. You don't need to look at the needle but your should be watching to make sure it is from a new, unopened package. Otherwise, you shouldn't even get it done.

8. The only reason why people get infections is because they don't take care of it or the piercing place was not sanitary. So, you can avoid the risk of infection by first watching to make sure all needles and tools are from packages that have not been opened. Those tools have been sterilized in the sanitary machines like they hospitals use. If the needle is in a new, unopened package that shows that it is brand new. Next, if you properly clean your belly button with the proper cleansers and as many times as your suppose to a day I guarantee you will not get an infection.

9. Your suppose to wait about three months before going swimming in chlorine. The reason why they say this is because the chlorine will dry out the piercing. That is why many people get their belly button pierced in winter then it is okay for the summer time. If you do get it done in the summer and want to go swimming you can buy large waterproof band aides that will fit over the whole piercing and keep it dry. Only use those band aides when you are in the water and take it off after you are done swimming.

10. They say you should wait about three months. Also, there are proper types of rings you should wear in your belly button. If you have an innie belly button that is deep you should wear a ring type of belly button. If you have an innie belly button that isn't very deep you can wear and barbell type. The reason why they suggest this is because if your belly button is very deep the barbell will be constantly sinking into your belly button and you will always have to pull it out which is irritating.

ANSWER #63 of 73

Okay Im only asnwering number one because you have a lot of other answers. But honestly I've had my eyebrow, tongue, tragus, nose, lip, and belly button pierced. And my belly buttons hurt the most. I seriously would give that a 9...I don't know maybe because I had it done before and I had scar tissue the second time. But even the first time...I would give it about a 6 or 7.

2- it really doesn't matter
3- it depends on where you go mine was 45$
4- it kinda depends on where you go again haha usually you have to be 15 with permission w/ parent. Bt I got mine when I was 11.
5- it gets over within like 3 mins. Extremely fast
6- if you think about it to much yes some people get sick
7- I looked at the needle.and it didn't do anything.if your the type that's scared just imagine it as somethin else
8-yes. It can. DO NOT use sea salt.no matter what people tell u.only use reg. Dial soap twice a day for at least 3 months.
9- no you can't go right after. It takes about 6 months to fully heal. I went swimmin after about 3 or 4

And yes oozing of a yellow green is normal.

ANSWER #70 of 73

i had mine done nearly 4 years ago now and it doesn't hurt it just feels like a big pinch so it hurts for like 2 seconds after that it didnt hurt i didnt have mine clamped or numbed its worse if it clamped because after the clamp is off the blood starts to rush back to that area . its not that bad after its just feels like you have pulled a muscle if you stretch dont be scared all the girls in my year at high school all got it done and we all agreed tat it didnt hurt :) just make sure that you clean it loads so that it heals nicely dont use salt water that doesn't work use savlon spray
