    I'm a crazy 46 yr old guy and I am obsessed with getting a navel piercing and finding this forum is quite fortitious:bowdown: ...Anyway, I would like some pics (or a link)so I can see some samples of jewelry but I do know that I want a hoop and not a barbell. Now on to the questions: Do they use a punch type of tool or do they use a needle? I would think that a punch would be more tolerable. Now for a laughable question, Would getting drunk be advisable? When I'm drunk you could slice me in half and I wouldn't feel any pain, but I assume no reputable piercer would go near a drunk, correct? However, there's an 18 yr old guy at work who is into piercing (he has one of those kits) and he probably would do me while drunk but I'm not sure I want him to touch me.:ugh:

    A few basics...

    Get quality jewelry. Surgical steel. Buy it from a piercing/tat shop.

    NEVER use a gun. Guns should honestly be illegal. Trust me, anyone into the scene will tell you the same.

    NEVER NEVER NEVER get a piercing or tat drunk, or with any drinks at all. It thins the blood and can cause you to bleed a LOT.

    Go to a shop. No question. Never let a friend do it. Go to a professional. Ask around for a reputable shop in your area... Research is GOOD!

    It doesn't matter how small the piercing, there is a big difference between right and wrong, good and bad. Always get someone with REAL experience, good tools, good jewelry and good signs. By signs I mean, they ask questions about what you want, how you want it, placement, jewelry, how long you have thought about doing it (more for tats). And they explain EXACTLY/In FULL what they will be doing start to finnish, and all the care methods for after. All these things are important, and if someone says one of them isn't, don't go to them, cuz thats a really bad sign...


    Hope it helps man... :wavey:

    It does! And there are some points I hadn't even considered such as the blood-thinning aspects of alcohol and I now realize I shouldn't trust my "friend" but rather go to a shop. Now I just need to go out and do it...

    by navel you mean bellybutton (dumb question i know but I really lost my mind just now.. and dont generally hear of guys getting it pierced)? they use a needle .. as digredi said go to a legitimate shop and never get it while drunk.. good luck hope you enjoy it

    I meant somewhere in the area that surronds the bb. I would think that piercing the bb itself would be exceptionally painful.

    Yeah deffinetly listen to digredi. Drinking is one of the biggest no no's when getting pierced or inked. For jewerly once you get it pierced you will not be able to change for about 4 to 6 months if i am not mistaken. Oh and idone is your friend. And be sure to listen to everything they say when taking care of it. The belly button can get infected easy. Start out w/ a hoop that gets caught less on clothing then you can change to all kind of neat things. A hoop is also easy and cheap you can just change the color of the beads and it looks like a new ring. Good luck w/ your ring.

    I know several guys with navel piercings. I think it looks pretty spiffy :)
    Regardless..get your mods for yourself and what you like.
