By, Ianthe from Harrogate.
So i’ve wanted my belly done for a long time, NEARLY a year infact, I finally got the nerve to ask my mum, As you can imagine, initially the response was “NO!” I spent a whole 4months begging and pleading, and coming up with justifying excuses like “But mum, it’s better than a tattoo, i can just take it out and no scars left!” & “If i decide i don’t want it one day, I can just take it out, and it’s fine (: ” Still the answer was no, So I got my mums friend to talk to her about it, and eventually my mum came around. Initially the plan was to get it done for my 15th Birthday, But we were in the middle of moving house, and I knew a place where my friends had been and had good reports, so we went there, a WHOLE MONTH before my 15th (: So the weeks after i knew i’d get it done it was pure suspense, When i got there it was pure nerves, My piercer went through all the aftercare & piercing details and my mum signed all the papers, The piercer marked the dot on with a purple pen and after checking i it were straight he asked me to lay down, Previously i’d been asking all of the people in the tattoo parlour ‘does it hurt’ The pircer then said to me, “Let’s go at it this way, It’s gonna hurt and it’ll hurt like hell, Then when it doesn’t you’ll be happy” So i wrapped my arms around the underneath of the bench and after a tiny pinch of the clamp it was done…. I LOVE IT!! I reccomend it to all young girls, or anyone who wants it done for that matter.. The tiny bit of pain is worth it and it looks so beautiful!
