Do it yourself navel piercing?

Do it yourself Navel Piercing?

I purchased a 12g hollow needle and a 14g belly button ring and have done the research on doing this type of piecing by yourself so I am not completely ignorant. But I still have a few thing I want to be clarified on. First, is it OK not to use clamps, because I do not have any and second, what is the ideal placement for it. I am a chubby girl so I do have a bit of fat, but it does not fold over my navel. Finally, if weight lost was possible in the future, and it is, is there a certain location it should be placed?Please only leave constructive feedback, not comments about how stupid I am or how I should get it professionally done. I've had a few bad encounters with "professionals" from different establishments and I just do not feel comfortable anymore. they turn out better when I do them myself. ;PThanks :)
