 It hurt. It took a LONG time to heal. Practically all my jeans were uncomfortable for quite some time. Even the lower ones would rub when you sit wrong (comfortably). My husband hated it, and I finally removed it. Left an ungly scar. I wouldn't do it again.

I had mine done twice, first time right before my first pregnancy and it didn't hurt at all. The second time was because I let the first one close up because I got too big with my pregnant belly and they did it right through the scar tissue of the old one and it hurt like crazy. So if I were to do it again, I'd do it on the bottom part of my belly button instead! My cartilage on my ear hurt 10x worse than this did though!

I got mine done when i was 14. im a big baby with needles and my belly button didnt hurt at all. IT was over so quick i didnt feel a thing. It took a while to heal but it never hurt. The only pain i had was after the first few days i couldnt lay on my belly.

Mine did not hurt at all. I have a lot of peircings and that was the least painful one! Not lying! And it is sore for like a week, but then it goes away with proper care!

If you dont plan on cleaning it often, I do not recomend it.

I have had mine pierced. It hurt for about a week after getting it pierced, but if you move it around a lot it will hurt longer. It does take a while to heal though

Nope, I have worked as an RN in the ER for over 14 years and by far it's the most common place on the body, hands down for an unwanted infection to pop up. Ive seen a few so bad on the navel they required surgery.

I got my pierced at 23 and no it did not hurt. He told me to breathe in and out and it was done! I have had it for almost 11 years now. No problems whatsoever
