  • Probably not.
  • And why cant you ?? Are you too young ??
  • No. No, No, No. You're asking whether it's safe to attempt to sterilise an item that is full of tiny ridges- even on the tip, let alone the bend and the head, and use it to shove a hole through a 1cm piece of skin. A safety pin can barely pierce a finger, so think how hard you're going to have to push- blunt force trauma, sweaty fingers, tissue damage... So that's just infection and bruising, let alone the (high) chance of doing it wrong. BMEzine had some special issue some time back, asking piercers about their "special" encounters. people coming in yelling about their daughters being pierced underage, because the kid lied about doing it themselves, people coming in with awful infections because they'd done it themselves-- and kilt pins (basically oversized safety pins). One piercer specifically listed Kilt pins as the bane of his safe-piercing career.
  • No it isn't. You should get anything like this done by a professional. If you can't legally get your belly button pierced at a professional parlor because of your age, etc... there's a reason.
  • Um.... NO! There is no possible way that you can sterilize a safety pin to the standards needed for body piercing. My daughter made the mistake of trying that with her ears and ended up with a severe ear infection due to the piercing. I have had friends who have tried piercing themselves. A week later they always removed them due to inflammation and a vile smelling discharge. If you cannot get a professional piercing now, just wait until you can. The belly button is one of the worst to heal anyways. Most people take upwards of six months to heal. I am sure that you would rather have it done right, than to botch it and have a permanent scar.
  • No, its not safe , nor is it smart. You could get a really bad infection, like everyone has already mentioned. If its about age wait, if its about money, save up for it. I doubt you want to ring in the holiday with an oozing belly button infection.
  • no thats not safe. i pierced my own lip but i knew what i was doing and used the right tools. ive pierced alot of people, including myself. and i wouldnt of done it to myself if i wasnt 100% confident with myself and my skills and knew what i was doing. your not going to be able to sterilize a saftey pin your just upping your chances on infection. wait to get it professionally dont
  • omg dont do it it thats how i did my lip the first time and it was soooooo disgusting abd havind you belly infected would hurt ten times as much as getting it done
  • no, its completely unsafe even if you did do it you wouldnt be able to fit the jewelry through because navel rings go from 16 to 18 gauge, a safety pin is smaller than that. and if you forced the jewelry through anyways you would tare the tissue through your new pierced skin and would raise the chances of getting an infection. they have very specificly designed hollow needles for doing body piercings, if your going to do it yourself you really should buy the equipment to do it. which would be just as or more expensive than it would be to get it done proffessionally.
  • Ok, well look here, im not going to preach about getting it done by a professional but avoid piercing it yourself at all costs, its much better at a pro, quick and easy and sterilized... I have had my belly button done at a pro and I have self pierced it aswel... self piercing was a bad experence it took me three hours straight of pushing, I almost fainted and it hurt like a bitch, but if you MUST Do it yourself talk to me and I will give you step by step instructions and how not to be as idiotic as you can be. Ok, don't just stick it in willy nilly because you are going to have a BIG BIG PROBLAM! Cheers, x

  • I would not. Sterilize the safety pin and make sure that you keep the area sterile afterwards. Get an anti biotic cream and keep the are dry!!
  • No it is not safe. If you cannot get it done professionally there must be a good reason.
  • I took my daughter to get hers done at a professional. I watched her get it done and to me it looked like it hurt. She got an infection-they told us how to treat it and it went away. She's fine now. I think using a satety pin would be unbelievibly painful. Certain states if you check will do it at 14. Please do not do this yourself, it's not life or death.
  • LOL!! Stupid cunt. No! Duh. Please let us know when your stomach turns green. I want to laugh.
  • Please don't. Last year, my 15 year old daughter peirced her own nose, because she didn't want to wait to go to South Carolina to get it done like we did her belly button. In Georgia you can't get a peircing until your 18, parent or no. She got an infection because of her impatience. It hurt alot. Just wait until you can have a professional do it, my daughter and I proved, if there's a will there's a way.
