Belly Button Pierced!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It’s not crooked, my camera is…

Got this done two weeks ago.  I’m not new to piercings (I have had 13 in my life, including this one) but I was still really nervous about getting it done. It didn’t hurt too bad, but bled a lot.  The piercer said that isn’t common though.

It was sore for about a week, now it doesn’t hurt at all unless I catch it on something.

After it’s fully healed I may do a post on what to expect and how to take care of it, etc…

      Oh wow, this was such a long time ago. It’s been 5 years since I had mine done.

      Mine was red for quite a while but I heal very slowly and I ended up having a very mild infection that finally healed from antibiotics I took after getting my wisdom teeth out. At least, I think that’s what happened. It took me a full year for it to heal. That shouldn’t happen with you.

      It’s gonna take a lot longer than a week for the redness to go away, but as long as it’s not hurting very badly and not discharging pus (you’ll have a kind of discharge for a while, but you’ll probably know if it’s pus. It would smell bad and probably be quite thick)

      I’m no expert though, so if you have a concern, visit a piercer. And if something happens and you think it’s infected, don’t take it out. It could get worse.
