So your child wants a navel ring...

AdvantagesPretty, gets compliments, can make you feel good about yourself

Disadvantagesread the review

"Piercing. The one word that, to many parents and parents of teenagers (particularly girls), causes massive arguments and shouting matches, protestations of independence, and replies of “over my dead body.” Ok, so the scene at my house wasn’t quite that drastic, but my mother had made it quite clear to me that the question of my getting my bellybutton pierced was out of the question. She didn’t see the need for it, and thought that getting any ..." Read review

The Cheap yet Great thrill of Body Piercing! Review with images

AdvantagesThrill, look s cool

DisadvantagesYou get sick of it and want a new thrill, its addictive

"Bodypiercing, where to begin. This thrill of a new piercing is overwhelming as a teenager. After one, you want another and another.. until you run out of places to get pierced. Once you hav gotten this far, or have grown up, the cheap thrill seems to evaorate, forcing you to move onto bigger and better things to acheive your thrills, such as tattoos and going to overage clubs etc. ----MY PIERCINGS---- I was an avid piercer a couple of years ..."

NIBBLY NIPS?!

AdvantagesMakes you feel young at heart and sexy

DisadvantagesSome people might find it distasteful or painful

"Until Saturday 17th July 2004, I only had two pierced holes in my body and that was simply one on each ear. I actually tried to have a second hole pierced in each ear when I was about 16 and wanted to be young and trendy. However, a second hole was added to one ear with a gun; I was a total wimp, screamed in agony and refused to have the other one done! This hole then went on to become severely infected and eventually I gave up and let it close over. So ..." Read review

The Truth on Naval Piercing

AdvantagesLooks great, stylish, not painful

DisadvantagesTakes a while to heal

"Naval Piercing also known as "belly button piercing" is very common with teenage girls. Ive always liked the naval piercing ever since i was 13 but i was also very scared of getting it done as i was told by many friends that its painful. A few people also commented on how it hurt to walk after the piercing as the pain was so bad. Now being 18 i thought it was about time i went for it and got my naval pierced! My boyfriend also wanted his eyebrow ..." Read review

BANG! STING! STUDS HOORAY!!

AdvantagesFashionable, usefukl for hanging earrings out of.

Disadvantagespossible infection, possible scarring, possible pain

"As a child I desperately wanted to have my ears pierced but alas my daddy said NO!! Howwever after successfully mithering the life out of him for years, and very craftily waking him up a 6am to make him promise I could have them done (crafty but effective as dad's never break their promises!), I eventually got my ears pierced at the now popular body shop, Vogue. I was 15 years old back then and it cost £10.00 as I am allergic to anything but gold ..." Read review

Slice and dice me baby!!!

AdvantagesGood talking point!

DisadvantagesWill it ever heal!

"As i have as many holes as a watering can,I thought I would share just two of them with you.The first will be my belly button piercing.Well here goes,if you are of the squeamish nature then just rate VH or even better give it an E.You must know the calibre of my ramblings by now. The story of my self mutilation begins one Sunny May when I had just reached fifteen.I kept teasing my Mum,saying that I was going to get my belly button pierced.Her being ..." Read review

Be Gentle On My Genital...

AdvantagesSexual pleasure, Unquie, Different, Strange...Painful!

DisadvantagesToo Shocking? Oh, It Stings When You Go To The Bathroom.

"****************************** CONTAINS NATURE OF EXPLICIT SEXUAL NATURES...well doh, this IS my opinion about genital piercings! Expect the worst. ****************************** First things first, you are all probably thinking to yourself that I must be one hell of a crazy girl to be writing about GENITAL PIERCINGS! And the first question(s) which is probably on your lips (excuse the pun) is: What sort of genital piercings has she got? *all ..." Read review

Pierce ME Once Pierce Me twice. Review with images

AdvantagesCan look nice, can be taken out when fed up.

DisadvantagesCan be pricy, some are painful, can get infected.

"As you all know I have recently had abit of an image thing going on. I have had some piercings recently and wanted to give some advice on it. I had my first piercing at the age of nine. Of course this was my ears and to most serious piercers is not really considered body piercing. I am going to go through each I have and also what's available from most good piercing shops. Using these shops are tattooists. I have since learned that piercers only do ..." Read review

Pain what pain?! Review with images

AdvantagesLooks good!

DisadvantagesStings...just a little!

"~~*Ears!*~~ I'm such a wimp when it comes to pain and said last time I would never have anything else pierced! Saying that its not like I've actually got a lot done! I had my ears done when I was six, and that was only because my best friend had had hers done and I felt left out! I then had a second lot of holes done when I was 11 because I thought it was cool and looked nice. Plus if I'm honest I really wanted my hair highlighted but wasn't allowed ..." Read review

Disadvantagessee op

"I may not be the best person at giving advice on piercing's, as i only have 4 ( well 6, four earrings,my navel and my tounge) but i know people with an assortment of piercing's, so I know a fair bit and can give their experience’s too! I have had my ear's pierced twice, the first done when i was about a year old. I was a little fat baby, and people couldn't tell if i was a boy or a girl, so my mum, in her wisdom, dressed me in pink and got ..." Read review

In the name of fashion

AdvantagesLooks good, not too expensive

DisadvantagesCan go wrong...

"I would like to tell people of my experience with having my navel pierced – just incase any of you good people are considering, or know of anyone who may be having this painful procedure carried out. It is always best to be well aware of the things that can go wrong, no matter how small! I always fancied the idea of having a hoop through my belly button, it was the ‘in thing’ and I thought it looked good. I also then ignored ..." Read review

Smelly holes

AdvantagesHoles are fun

DisadvantagesThey can be smelly

"First of all let me be clear that this isn’t a definitive guide to body-piercing, in case that's what you're after. It’s more a series of anecdotes about me that might be worth reading as cautionary tales, if you’re considering doing a bit of DIY hole punching, or if you enjoy sniggering at what some idiots get up to. My parents, although not particularly strict, wouldn’t let me get my ears pierced when I was at school, ..." Read review

Now then . . . just hold still. UPDATED

AdvantagesNon-permanent, affordable, large choice

DisadvantagesThe pain factor, infected piercings are not nice!

"The reason this op came about was the recent outbreak of ops under ‘Member advice on tattoos’, so I thought – ‘I don’t have any tattoos (yet!) but I do have piercings, I know I’ll write an op an that’. And here we are to prove it! WHAT CAN YOU HAVE PIERCED? I have 3 piercings myself and know many people who have more and in a variety of places. There are numerous parts of the body you can get pierced now, these include: > Ears (The lobe, ..." Read review

be clean

Advantageslook good

Disadvantages"if god wanted you to have holes in your body..."

"A lot of people say, "hey, if god wanted you to have holes in your body you would have been born with them." yeah I guess so, but if he didn't, would he have given us free will? What business is it of yours how I choose to "mutilate" my body? Apart from it looking good, it provides people with jobs as a piercer. I’m not trying to convince everyone to get piercings, I respect your decisions, but you can't use religion to argue against piercings. I ..." Read review
