A few years ago my best friend came up to Michigan from Virginia to see her grandpa for thanksgiving. Thanksgiving just happens to be right after my birthday so since I had just turned 18 I wanted to get my belly button pierced. The place I always went to had just gotten a new piercer and I was slightly nervous to go to her….and I will never go to her again now. The piercing itself didn’t hurt, I just wasn’t happy with the job she did. She originally put the needle in crooked, pulled it out and re-pierced it. It ended up getting infected 🙁 and took months to heal.
