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.
