So, I very very recently got a navel piercing on one of my more spontaneous days. I've planned on getting one since I was fourteen and I just decided to get it on whim. If not now, when? Right? Anyways, I was far too ecstatic about having gotten the piercing that I didn't take a proper look. Now, in all fairness, the studio I got it done at was a very very reputable place. The only thing is that I didn't pay enough attention to when the lady asked me if it looked straight to me. I just said,"Yeah! Looks great!" As if I knew any better. So... I get home and take my first excited look at my new piercing.
The OCD girl in me died. I wanted to punch myself in the gut. That's how off center it felt like to me.
So, now I am faced with dealing with a crooked piercing for the rest of my life. Or... I could get it to heal up and then re-pierced.
Should I deal with this crooked piercing, it would:
- Serve as a constant reminder of the days when I was young and stupid.
- Teach me to be less OCD about life.
- Teach me that I'm far from perfect.
- Teach me that it's the small imperfections that give character sometimes.
