Things you have to know about belly button piercing
Your belly button is actually quite high on your list of the sexiest parts of your body, isn’t it?
And you have to agree that wearing a great looking belly button ring makes it far more attractive!
They say belly button piercing went mainstream in the early 90ies when Aerosmith aired their new video Cryin’ where Alicia Silverstone got her navel pierced. Before that body piercing wasn’t as popular as it is now and belonged to more specific groups of society like punks and ‘rebellious youths’!
Adding to that many top models appeared before public sporting embellished belly buttons. Supermodel Christy Turlington walked out at a London Fashion show sporting a belly button ring. The next day Naomi Campbell showed off her navel sporting a gold belly ring.
After Christy and Naomi many celebrities started to appear in public wearing navel jewelry. More and more girls followed them…
The message was clear – ANYONE CAN DO IT!
