But sometimes it’s only a little painful. Today was Nes’ birthday so the plan has always been to get our belly buttons pierced to celebrate and mark the occasion. Nes had mentioned she wanted one and I mentioned I wanted one too and we both agreed that if we waited to have the belly that we wanted that we would never get the piercings, LOL. So while beauty is pain I’m not saying that my belly it beautiful but I am feeling a little sore *G*.
Nes has been psyching herself out about this piercing. This chick who has jumped out of a plane was living in terror of a little (or not so little) needle going into her belly. I was really worried she was going to chicken out so we decided she would go first so she wouldn’t freak herself out watching me. She was joking about me screaming but I told her, being the big bad toughie that I am, that I have 2 tattoos, a belly piercing doesn’t compare, LOL. Nes did her research and found a tattoo parlor in Amsterdam for us to get our piercings, called shockingly enough, The Tattoo Palace, LOL. I have decided that tattoo artists are my people. I always have a good time hanging with them and laughing and joking. The only problem is they have so many tattoos and piercings, LOL. One or two I don’t mind but the piercing across the bridge of the nose and the tattooed head is just not attractive to me, which is unfortunate cause one of the guys there was telling us how he liked women with meat on their bones, umm, I qualify, LOL!
Donald was our piercer, he had green hair, a pierced nose and lots of tats, he was also from Vancouver so we were almost neighbors and he was really sweet. He promised that it would not hurt, well he said by the time it registered that it hurt that it would be over. He was extremely gentle with us. I have to say, I was a little disappointed by Nes. I expected screams of terror, a little crying at least and all I got was her singing Build Me Up Buttercup and she didn’t even realize she was pierced! Of course I couldn’t wuss out (I had no plan too) but I did get a little worried that since she handled it so well I wouldn’t but what was I thinking? Of course I came through it like a champ! Considering how much I prefer to keep my belly covered it’s funny that I have a tattoo and a piercing to highlight my lowlight!
The happy piercees with their cool piercer, LOL. In case you can’t tell Nes and I are sucking our bellies in like crazy! I
