My cousin is three years older than me, and she already had 8 piercings. She knew that I wanted to get my belly button pierced [which would be my first piercing besides my ears] and she decided that since she always wanted to get her eyebrow done, she would do it the same day i got my bellybutton done.
We begged my aunt to let her get her eyebrow pierced, and she FiNALLY gave in and then we had to decide on a tattoo/piercing place that was clean, and trustworthy. My cousin wanted to go to the Beauty Mark Tattoo in Waterbury, Connecticut because that’s where she got many of her other piercings, so that’s where we went! All I could remember was on the car ride thre, my hands were really sweaty and I was shaking and I couldn’t stop talking.
I couldn’t get the image out of my mind of a huge needle being shoved through the skin on top of my bellybutton, and that scared me. Alot. Oh, one thing I want to tell you: if you want to get your bellybutton pierced, but are afraid of how much it will hurt, TRUST ME it doesn’t hurt AT ALL and if you are like me and keep trying to pinch your bellybutton to see if it hurts that much, don’t do that because pinching yourself does hurt, but actually getting it pierced doesn’t hurt at all!!
Well it’s been almost a year now since that day and im still in love with it! I love buying new barbells to put in it and its so much fun to show off! I’m working on convincing my mom to let me get my tongue pierced now, I hope she’ll say yes! 🙂
