I have noticed they have many options available now. They have navel jewelery with a plastic arm which makes it better for pregnancy, also better for first time piercers in case you have to get it redone.
I came this close >--< (lol- I talk with my hands) to getting my tounge pierced...untill I went with a girlfriend on our lunch break and she got hers done... I swear she had a horrible lisp for about a month!
Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.
One of my friend's friend had her lip done and she ended up drooling for months until she got used to it. She had to drink with a straw because she couldn't figure out how to drink with the ring. It was right in the middle of her bottom lip.
