    I have an inverse navel piercing - on the bottom. And yes it hurt like a focker! It bled everywhere :s Worth it though, 'cause it's uber cute! But everyone I know who has the top done says it doesn't hurt, so, go for it ya big softie!

    Had mine done when i was 14, dont particularly like needles either bt it was fine. of course u do feel something, literally a sharp pinch but the week after u get it done is worse than getting it done, cos it stings. but well worth it, u can take it out if u dont like it etc. besides i got a tattoo after that, and the pain of havin your belly button pierced is nothing compared to that

    I'm going to get mine done soon, just waiting for my PE practicals to stop so I won't catch it! Check out http://www.bmezine.com/pierce/07-navel/bme-pg07.html for a few pics (under multi navels and navel projects), then look up people's experiences on the right. It's very helpful!

    Mine's inverse (on the bottom) so it did hurt quite a bit, with it going through flesh, rather than skin, and it did bleed. But I love it, I really do. Totally worth the "pain". No pain, no gain. Just go for it.

    I did, but mine rejected again. Although I had them both done in february and they both rejected in early september, so I thiunk it may be something to do with being bashed at reading Festival.

    There are laods of successful re-piercing stories, but it depends why the first one rejected and whether you've changed that.

    I got mine done was I was about 13 or 14, but it rejected. That time, it was done at a Tattoo place so they numbed it and I didn't feel it at all. But I got it done a year later at a Beauty place and it really hurt, in my honest opinion. It wasn't unbearable. (So for the person above, there's no reason to say it will reject again! I only got rid of mine last summer, so the second time it lasted for four years with no real problems)

    I took it out last year anyway, when I realised that naval piercings actually look quite daft,.

    the piercing itself doesn't hurt but be prepared for a long fight with infections-mine took more than a year to heal(well,the fact i didn't take much care of it after the piercing may have contirbuted ;p) but yea,i've had my tongue and nipps done and the navel took the longest to heal!!!

    Just a quick question... how long was it before your inverse healed... not completely, but until it stopped being red and sore? I'm really keen on getting mine done, but I play a lot of sport so it might be better to wait until the season is over befor I get it done. Obviously I know everyone's healing times are different, but I just want an idea. Thanks

    I know someone with that.

    It looks good

    I prefer the inverse piercings to normal navel piercings, as it happens. But not enough to get it done myself.

    Both of my best mates have that done, it looks hot.
    When I have some spare cash I'm gonna see about having mine pierced twice more

    That's what I'm doing, getting it done at the bottom under the standard one I have already! I want it done sooo badly, but it's just waiting for the right moment, plus I want to lose a bit of the flab on my belly first! :p:
