A belly piercing is a type of piercing located in, or around the navel(肚脐). It may heal quickly and with no problems, just like ear piercing. Healing usually takes less than 6 months, and as long as it cleaned, it will heal nicely. A true navel piercing requires the person being pierced to have an "outie" navel to some degree, and is getting more popular these days.
So a road trip to Koh Lipe was the perfect time just to do it. Me & Yunice decided to do this "sister piercing" together, and especially we were at the beach we definitely need some decorated belly right? LOLLL excuses! We went to Antique Tattoo & Body Piercing which is located around the middle of Walking Street in Koh Lipe, it was one of the first tattoo shop to open in this Island, so I guess it is very reliable. We were afraid to choose people who are no professional enough to in-charge a slipping needle through our skin.
Lets get started!
Step 1: Select your stud/ barbell
There's a many option for you in different shapes and different colors. I decided to go for the "pink" one, as you know I am pink obsession. We were scared lolll, Yunice keep on asking the man whether we might feel the pain? **明知故问
Step 2: Understand all about belly piercing
1. Would it hurt like crazy?
No, you'll only feel the pain when he started to pierce. But depends on individual.
2. It takes how long to heal?
Around few weeks.
Step 3: Go ahead
Yunice is the bravest girl among us, so she decided to go first. I witnessed the whole process beside her, her stomach was slathered with antiseptic which relieve pain without eliminating sensation. And he draw a "dot" on her belly. She was closing her eyes and she did screamed. But it seems not that hurtful. Fast & easy, I assumed it went well.
"Pain ah pain ah?？
"Still ok lahhh, it's not that painful"
It's my turn
Yunice stayed to watch since she'd already been through it. I was tensing up and getting a little nervous.I looked pretty stressed when I saw the needle, err i thought he was suppose to use something looks like a "GUN?" I somemore asked him a dumbest question! Can I hold my breathe so my belly is smaller and the piercing looks nicer? Because I have a big belly, shit I regretted for not exercising.
I considered myself not so lucky. Because when Yunice's turn, she was very fast and quick. And mine, the needle failed to go into my skin due to the thickness of my skin. ( I told you, i have a big belly right? ) He was trying to poke again & again, so Ying Shing was shocked when she witnessed everything.
Looked at her expression! HAHAHAH!
I am a coward tooooooo!
You must learn how to take care your new piecing, such as don't touch the piercing all the time, and keep it clean & disinfected. After few days of wearing crop T + low waisted pants, we were back to normal. We called those our " pregnant" days because we have to walk very carefully, and I doubt that we can still exercise in this few weeks.
After my piercing, one of my friend told me :"Eh from now on you can't work out anymore! If not you gonna koyak your stomach and all the blood gonna shot out of the wound like a fountain" ........ SWEAT.
If you ask me now, am I glad I was pierced? Yes of course! I am happy with my cute belly piercing now. Don't live your life for regrets. I am not encouraging anyone of you must go for a piercing, but if you want, just do it.
