Belly Button Piercing

I’m very mature for my age. I’ve always been the daring girl with the big boobs, no joke!

I’ve wanted my belly pierced since 5th grade when my best friend and I saw a picture of one in a magazine. As years passed I forgot about it.

I got my ears pierced. Then double pierced. Then I had my cartilege pierced. After adding a second cartilege and a triple piercing, i remembered my belly.

I started asking in January. Time and time again my parents refused. 🙁 I even tried shoving a push pin in one day to see how much it would hurt. Finally i put together a packet to show how dedicated i was to getting this done. My parents said i could! I was so excited! 😀

So i went online and found an amazing place called the body gallery. One day after volleyball practice my dad showed up to drive there, we entered in the address into the GPS in our car. But it was so weird, we showed up at the place, a really shady, creepy store with tinted windows and thugs hanging around smoking. 😕

My dad told me that if it was dirty we were going home. So we walk inside and BOOM. It was bright, clean, sanitary and had classical music playing and a fountain. SURPRISE! SURPRISE! So the man who did mine, Ben, was extremly nice and professional and answered all my questions.

Honestly, he looked scary. 😉 He marked it, made me lay down and clamped it. So I’m terrified of needles, as in, typically i need to be drugged for my flu shot. So here i am, laying down on the table, gripping my phone for dear life.

He pierced it. I’m not gonna lie, it hurt. Only For about 4 seconds. then it was done! I was the first to get it done in my school and im so excited to show it off at the beach this summer!
