For all of y'all - bellybutton piercings are easy! I am THE biggest wimp when it comes to needles (seriously, I have a neuro thing that makes me pass out whenever I see one. lol.) and I was fine. It'll feel kinda like the piercing is pinching for a few days, but then the pain should subside. They do take FOREVER to heal, though. Andddd they hurt like a you-know-what when you catch baskets. Cradles/full/double downs never bothered mine.
