How many body piercings do you have? How many is too many? Currently, I have 2 on each ear and a nose piercing. I'm thinking of getting a belly button one done. But I was told they take a long time to heal. Is that true? When I got my nose one done, it didn't hurt at all. I don't think the belly one is going to hurt either. If I do get that done, I think that will be my last one. I don't want to go overboard and look like a magnet attraction!

I have objections to body piercings. I also have 2 on each ear like you and that's about it. My niece have one on her tongue and 3 on each ear. I think it really depends on you and how comfortable you are with piercings. A friend also has one on her belly, she didn't have any problems at all, as long as you clean it, I think you'll be fine. As I said it really is upto you how many you plan to have, anyway you can have them pierced and don't put anything on it all the time. You can have a nose piercing but don't necessarily have to have nose rings... or something to that effect. just put one on for a special occassion, so you don't really need to be 'magnet attraction' =)

hahaha! That's what I thought you said. Yeah, but I do know if you don't wear anything for awhile in the piercings, they will easily close up. Anyway, I will think about the belly button one.

I dont have any currently, I took everything out. I have my ears pierced but I never wear earings I then later got my belly button pierced and that hurt the worst, and never healed properly so I ended up removing that. Plus it kept catching on my clothes and that would really hurt! Then just recently I got my nose pierced. That hurt only because he had to pierce it through 3 times to get it in right. It healed well though, but I took that out recently too because I would catch it on stuff, and rip it, and that really hurt! I would say for me I wouldnt get anything done other than my nose, or tongue. I would never get my belly done again, too painful!

That's what happened to one of my friend too. Said it took her almost a year for her belly button to heal but she persisted and kept it on. I'm not that desperate though! LOL!!

Sorry, sorry !! I hate body piercing. The God has gifted us such a good body, why should we give pain to it. In African countries there are many rituals in name of religions, I see it in discovery channel. Really amazing. Even they scratch the whole body by blad like thing. It leaves permanent marks on the body. What is this.

Actually, it wasn't painful at all. It's not like I'm self-mutilating. It's more of an artform for me. I like wearing nice earrings and nose studs and I guess an extra belly button decoration wouldn't hurt :)
