So I have my belly button pierced, and when I got it pierced people were shocked, I’m not the type of person person you would expect to have piercings, people classify me as the ‘good girl’ so that made me want a piercing more! I just loved seeing the reaction on my friends faces! I had ALWAYS wanted one.
My parents were easy to convince! How I convinced them you ask? I just told them that it was my body and I was just going to get it done when I was 16 anyway! and I said that I wouldn’t start wearing skimpy clothes just because I had a navel ring!
I went it in with my mum after she had signed the papers, I was led into a room were I stood up straight as he marked where my piercing was about to go. The moments leading up to the peircing is when I started to get nervous! he had all his tools set out and I laid down on a bed type thingy and he clamped my skin and then slid the needle through and threaded the jewelry in and screwd the ball on. The whole porcess took 3 minutes and it hurt abouta 6-7 on a scale of 10 but the pain only lasted a second!
It has been 2-3 weeks since I got it done and it’s doing great! I clean it with sea salt twice a day, I am so happy that I got it done it’s probably one of the most spontaneous things I’ve ever done and I felt like a badass, lol.
