After at liest two years of me and my best friend begging our moms to get our belly buttons pierced they both finally gave in.
We were so excited. We both went to LA tattoos in madisonville,TN the man that pierced outs belllybuttons name was mike he was amazing. Super cool and everything. he was picking on me because i was scarred it would hurt.
He has a sign on his wall that says no whyners. My parents were picking on me. When he finally laid me back in the chair and started to put the clamp on my bestfriend was standing besie me holding my hand. our parents were laughing so hard. it was great. i picked the circle ring. because i was afriad of getting it ripped out.
but sadly i kinda think it may have been smarter to get just the regular ring. when he finally got it done i had no idea. i didnt even feel it. i was so amazed. i never would have thought that a piercing could be so painless. i know from now on not to be scarred though. because that just makes things worse [:
