I got my navel done when i was 15. I was very nervous because I went to a shop to get it done and I have always done my own piercings because the thought of strngers pircing me scares me. But I got the guts and laid on the table. It didnt hurt and the guy did a great job. The only bad part was sleeping because I sleep on my belly, but after a week or so I could sleep on it again. It has never gotten infected or anything and healed great.
