Me, not being able to get my belly button pierced under any circumstances I couldnâ€™t let my parents find out that I was thinking about getting it done, let alone going to get it done. I probably asked 1billion times and they kept saying no. I had a reasonable reason too.
So one day I slept over at my friendâ€™s house and she convinced me to get it done she was supposed to get something pierced as well but she flopped. We road our bikes down to a tattoo shop that was known for its cleanliness and had a good rep to get it done. During the process was the funniest part when the lady was about to put the needle through she said your first reaction is to put your hand where you feel the pain donâ€™t do it. And as soon as she put it through my arm went flying (for the record itâ€™s almost uncontrollable)!
The lady was nice and told me a lot of things to do and not to do (not like I was going to remember:-) All I could remember was her telling me you canâ€™t go swimming for 3 weeks, I have a pool in my backyard so you can imagine how hard it was to resist. To inform you the last week I went swimming every day. Then we had to ride all the way back. (This wasnâ€™t a close ride)
I hid it for a while which made cleaning a little harder planning to tell my parents near Christmas or never. Since I canâ€™t survive a year without Christmas, I told them 2 days later and they grounded me (N) telling me I couldnâ€™t go out anywhere. They even thought I was influenced by the wrong people, which isnâ€™t true; I was going to get it done either way. But it was worth it! 🙂
Itâ€™s been a month and a half (I think) since I got it pierced and I can definitely leave the house within reason 🙁 and I even gave my cousin courage to get hers pierced too ❗ (but she told her mom)
