Piercing Problem (DIY) long PLEASE READ – opinions needed ? !?

okay so i In summer of '08 when I was fourteen I decided I wanted my belly button pierced. A few friends of mine had it done and I thought it looked really hot. I let it go. But then in August once school started (my frist year of highschool - freshman year) I started to want one again. I went on a cruise in October and a lot of the girls had theirs pierced and it looked really hot. I wanted mine done so bad. I started saving up. I had around ninty dollars and went to the mall in November (my mom dropped off me and my twelve year old sister). I went to Piercing Pagodta and bought two gold 14 gauge barbells. One with just regular gold balls on the ends and one with a diamond. I had a sewing needle and a safety pin and ear care cleaning antiseptic from two and a half years ago when I got my ears double pierced. I iced my belly button and tried showing everything through. No luck. Couldn't even get through the first layer of skin. So I started saving up again. I had about eight-seven dollars by December. Recently I had befriended a senior at my school who was over 18. One day after school, when my mom thought I was doing a project, he took me in his truck and we went to Sally's Beauty Supplies. I gave him the money and he bought be a piercing gun. The kit came with the gun, one pair of ear rings, gel, a pen, a practice ear, and some other stuff. So I tried using the piercing gun to do my belly button. It was so strong, the spring in the gun. The first time I tried it, the ear ring stabbed me right in the center of my belly button and it hurt so bad. So instead I pierced my cartilage on my left ear. I cleaned it with the stuff in the kit and the ear care stuff I had back from when I got my ears double pierced. It healed up pretty good and I switched the ear ring out after a week. So towards the very end of the month I tried again. This was during Winter Brake. I pierced it. And it looked okay. I was happy with it. But then I fell asleep. When I woke up the back had popped off and it had closed up. I tried pushing it through but had no luck. So I let it heal it and kept putting medication on it. By the next week it had cleared up. So I was going to try again. I iced it but then chickened out. So the next night I pierced it, but I didn't squeze the trigger all the way so the ear ring didnt go all the way through. I tried again that night but eventualy I gave up. It was swallon and hard. Scarred tissue, maybe? Well, then next night I tried one last time. And I did it. I was so happy. I went to sleep and when I woke up it looked fine. So I kept putting meds on it and tried my best to take care of it. After a few weeks I took out the ear ring and put in a belly button ring. It got infected but I've been taking care of it and now it's okay. BUT it's not straight. It's crooked. Which kills me. But now it's been over a month so I'm not sure what to do. Just keep it? Or should I just take it out and wait until I'm 18 to get it repierced professionaly?
