My Mom Didn’t Know

Belly Piercing

I’ve been asking my mom for a piercing since I was 13 but my mom said that I didn’t need one. 🙁

One day my sister and I were talking about piercings and tattoos of course i wanted a piercing and she wanted a tattoo. When I turned 17, I asked my mom if I could get my belly button pierced and she told me no.

The same night she told me no, I went and got it done anyways. It didn’t hurt at first, but right after he put the belly ring in, thats when it started to hurt! I went home and told my mom and I thought she was going to be mad but she said the pain was enough punishment!! 😆
