I couldn't find a thread for it, so I made one!
Is this supposed to go here? xD

I'll start off with mine. =]
Belly, 6 dermals in total, 5 earings, 1 cartilage, 1 industrial. For now, this is what i'm happy with, but I'm going to add some hip piercings eventually.

Don't have pictures of my back dermals or my neck dermals yet, but will get them eventually xD

Dermals are also known as dermal anchoring, it's like a surface piercing but more permanent.
There's a bar "anchored" under the skin to keep it from rejecting less easily.

Hmm...for me, they hurt less than getting a tattoo, because the pain is short term. Whereas a tattoo is having pain for longer periods of time...but my friends would tell you different :rolleyes:

I suppose they feel like a belly ring, only a bit worse depending on the place you get them pierced at.

this is the process for getting them done. xD

I never really watched when I was getting them done because I couldn't, but i'm glad I didn't xD
This makes it look like torture!

I really wanted to get mine done on my chest too, but I don't think I am now, haha. Too much blood!

When did you take them out? I guess I never really thought about taking them out when i'm older...I always feel like I would have them until I die xD

I have my ears & belly button pierced ... I plan on having the belly button pierced until I die. It's an incentive to keep my tummy flat.

I took the belly ring out for good when I started college. When I was a senior in high school and in community theater I had a quick costume change backstage [like under 1 minute to change my full outfit.] Well, while my costume assistant was helping me change-- because I had to change so fast, I couldn't do it alone-- she pulled my dress over my head and the dress caught on my belly ring and ripped it out. I allowed it to heal and got it repierced again. BUT, it never quite healed properly after that like it did the first time. I think... had that not happened, I'd still have it pierced!

@beantownSugar haha..yea...me too, except I still need to get to that flat belly now in the first place xD. I think that was part of the reason I wanted a belly ring, so I can work harder at getting the flat stomach [didn't work out, clearly] haha.

@ pretty in pink OOUUUCH! I haven't had anything pulled out severely yet, *knock on wood* and I really hope I don't ever.

It hurt. VERY BADLY. And, it took every ounce of will power I had in me not to scream. But, the audience would've heard me. :nuts:

I have two piercings in my ears and I got my bellybutton done when I was 17. My best friend got her "happy button" pierced my senior yr of HS. I can't imagine how much that hurt...
