Okay if you're going to leave a comment like "you're slut shaming, what you wear doesn't make you slutty (insert more politically correct bullshit") then leave. Your opinion is not wanted.
Anyway, I've been thinking about getting a belly button piercing lately. Most of my friends have them and they're cute. I'm physically fit, I have a very flat toned stomach and a small waist so I'm not worried about how it will look exactly. But I was discussing it with my boyfriend and he said he thinks it would be sexy. And I said "really? You don't think it's kind of trashy?" And he was like "well it's sexy in a slutty way." I'm the farthest thing from a slut and I come from a slightly conservative, upper middle class family. I don't ever want to perceived as trashy. I'm young so I know a belly button piercing could be fun, but at the same time just because my boyfriend now likes it whoever I might meet down the line may not (I'm moving away in six months).
Also, I've heard stories of it leaving a noticeable hole? Anyone know from experience?
if you like the way it looks, and you are happy with it then go for it, do what you are happy with, doesn't matter what other people think about it as long as you are happy, lots of people look down at the goth type fashion but the people that are dressed like that are happy with what they are wearing and are not worried about what other people think, to be honest it doesn't have anything to do with anyone else, as long as it doesn't interfere with school or work, go for it
I have had mine for literally 8 years and debated on taking it out because I use to think I was plain jane and wanted something that would sparkle I suppose, but now I'm just in different about it. When I see one on other people I just notice they have a belly button ring and that's about it. However i'm nervous if it's going to look hideous after I take it out.
well yea, if you take it out there will be a noticeable hole. but it's best to just leave it in all the time anyway. i have one, i like it a lot and my boyfriends have too. i've never had a guy say he doesn't like it. the worst complaint i had was that my dangly one sometimes would scratch my boyfriend haha. if you want one get it. if someone judges you to be trashy purely based on having a belly button ring that says more about them than it does about you.
I've had one, the holes never go away. Well actually they can, but you have to go to a surgeon and they cut out the hole so the skin seals and heals. You'll be left with a tiny scar. They sell body jewelry that clips on, you could get that if you're concerned about leaving scars after you take it out when you're older.
Honestly who cares how others perceive it. If you want it, just go get it done! If a guy doesn't want to be with you (down the track) because of it then they are stupid, it's like saying sorry I can't be with you cause I don't like the colour of your shirt... do it for you and not for others [:
Belly button piercings are impractical, period. It's so hard for them to heal and they can rip on your clothing. A lot of people only consider the APPEARANCE of piercings without considering the MAINTENANCE of them. I personally am a fan of eyebrow piercings, but they have a high reject rate as their location is anatomically inconvenient. So do your research and don't just go get a piercing based off it's sexiness level.
