The not so suprising shock

Belly Button Ring

As I entered the peircing shop.. My heart started to pound. I was soon inhailing in and out as i reached the counter. I stepped up and told the girl “1 belly button piercing please”.

She told me i would have to wait about 45 minutes as there were many people there to get that same piercing. I did as i was told and left the counter. I ended up going out from lunch and then retourning the same heart pounding shop. I stepped up and the lady already recognized me. My friend smiled at me as she was there to support me 😀

A man came out and waved his hand to come in a small cluttered room. He talked to me, and explained that “Most girls scare themself’s with the attached stress more than the actaul pain.” So, i took a breath and smiled 🙂

I knew i was ready to do this. I had been wanting it for sometime now. The man shined a light on my stomach and started to draw 2 dots on my belly. I wasn’t even nervous at this point. Following his instructions i layed on the small bed thing. He cleaned my belly button and took a needle to it. My friend smiled as i squeezed her hand in shock. It really was not that bad!

As he sled the barbell in i made a funny face. It was not very painful it more just like and “ouch!” 🙂 I stood up and led myself to a mirror. I was SO happy with the results! Afterwards he explained to me how to clean and take care of it. I listened well and thanked the man. Sometimes the fear of doing something can be cool. It shows you are somewhat brave to actaully get something on your body pierced.

I was SO happy in the end with no doubt i left the shop with a smile on my face and a sexy looking belly button 😉


  1. I’m 10 And I see like 8 and 9 year old little girls all prancing around saying ” I’m so happy because my belly is not lonly” and the I walked over and I asked ” what do u mean?” and she said that she had a belly button piercing and I was soooo mad!!! >:( but last weekend my mom said that he would let me get one if on the first math test in middle school then… Guess what!!!!! 😀 I got one!!! Now I’m proud to not have to her ten saying that like every day. So of your 10 and you want a belly button piercing tell your mom or dad, just show them this and promos them that you’ll do something good bit you should always do good things! And it doesn’t even hurt! Just get the small rings
