    I'm thinking of getting mine done but I was wondering how sore it is? I've had my lobes and cartilage pierced so would it be worse than those?

    I got mine done when I was 13 and it only hurt when the needle went in but it's not painful it's just a sting.
    Then again I have a high pain tolerance.
    Cartilage is more painful because it's hard.

    Belly button piercings on a flat stomach are so hot

    Thanks I didn't find my cartilage sore at all so hopefully this one won't hurt either. Still trying to decide whether to go through with it... I'm not fat but my stomach isn't perfectly flat either, if I lost weight after getting it done would that affect it?

    It's not deep enough to pierce fat so it's not going to move etc if you lost/gained a ton of weight. If you consider that pregnant people only need to change their bar to a flexi one like really late in their pregnancy, then a bit of tummy fat really isn't going to make a difference :tongue:

    I found it hurt a tiny bit more than lobes, just cos obv it's a bigger needle going through more tissue... Never had cartilage done so can't compare, but it was just a momentary ouch when the needle went in and then again when they put the bar through. Bit sore when you move it to clean it initially but barely noticeable after the first few times

    I had it pierced about 7/8 years ago and i'm pretty sure mine was numbed as I honestly didn't feel a thing.

    I got mine done 10 years ago and they froze it so that it didn't hurt at all.

    Everyones experience is different but for me it was one of my worst piercings. It was numbed but hurt a bit when the needle went through, especially putting the jewellery through. A few hours later I couldn't sit up properly as my stomach was so sore it felt quite tight. That lasted for a few days mine took 6 months to heal as it's hard people use perfumed soaps and stuff in baths and showers and these irritate the piercing. Clean it twice a day with 1/4 a teaspoon of sea salt crystals/rock salt in 250ml of boiling water (obviously wait for the water to cool down after you've mixed with salt).

    Thanks for the advice everyone Keeping it clean shouldn't be too much of a problem, my cartilage piercing is still healing so I'm still sort of in the habit of making up the salt water anyway. Plus I can't use any perfumed soaps/fancy bath stuff so that won't be a problem

    Just got to get round to getting it done now!
