My Rebellious Experience
my whole naval piercing experience started when me and a few of my friends went in to get our ear piecred again with 2 more holes in each ear. After we got that done my best friend started talking about how much she wanted to get her naval pierced. I had never actually thought about it, but at the time it sounded pretty good to me. She is a grade ahead of where she should be so she isnt 18 yet like I am. So therefore she couldn't go get it done. I just kept getting more and more pumped about the idea of getting my belly button pierced. I came home that night and told my mom that I seriously wanted it done. She said that she wasn't very happy about the idea and that she would like to research it first. That night I had my sister look up stuff for me on the internet to help convince my parents to let me do it. Of course I didn't find anything valid. I had told my mom that I was 18 and she couldn't stop me, but without my mothers appoval, I was pretty sure that I wouldn't do it. After a couple of hours that day, I thought, oh well, I am 18 and I can do whatever I want. My friend told me that she would drive me to Rapid City so I could get it done. I know that I had only thought about it for 2 days but it seemed like a good idea. When we got there I had to fill out papers and then I picked out which ball I wanted. I picked out a dark purple one. Then I had to leave my friends and go back to the room. The lady had my lay down on my back while she cleaned the area. She marked the spot and the next thing I knew I felt a pinch. That was all the pain I felt through the whole thing. If you ask anybody who knows me, I am the biggest weenie, so if I can handle it, any of you can. When I got home my sister immediately asked me to show it to her. She was so amazed because she thought that I was going to chicken out. That night when I went out with my friends I was showing it to everybody. None of them believed that it was real because it wasn't all red around it like everybody else's they had seen. When the subject of my naval ring came up around my mom I would get nervous because I knew she was mad. I thought that her and my dad would hate me forever. I made sure that nobody said anything around my dad because I didn't want to make him even madder. A few days later it was starting to really bug me. I kept it in though, simply because of the fact that I payed 75 dollars to get it done. After a week I just decided to get it taken out when I went up to Gillette for Nationals rodeo. Instead of going to a shop to get it taken out my friend just cut the ring with a pare of pliars. The hole just looks like a little mosquito bite now and I am assuming it will get even smaller. I realized that it wasn't the naval ring that I was excited about, it was something I had to do to rebel before I went off to college. I later found out from my sister that nobody had even told my dad about my actually getting it done. That is something I hope he never finds out. I can't wait to see what my sister does when she has her rebellious experience. She has talked about wanting to get her eyebrow pierced but I don't think she will do it. I think that me and my brother (we are the two middle children) are more so the rebels of the family. We have both already been to jail. I got an MIP for drinking, and he got caught with drugs. So I think that she will choose to go down the road that my older sister has. At least I hope so. Because jail is the worst place ever, all I did was sit there and cry for a week, and I wouldn't wish that upon anyone I know that you are probably thinking, what a price to pay just to be rebellious. Well, my 75 dollars was worth it. Even though I had no idea at the time that I was just rebelling, I would do it all over again. I think every teenager needs to rebel at one time or another, so I say, go for it. Get your naval pierced, and if you don't like it, then take it out. It was worth it, that is, as long as my dad never finds out.
