Okay ... I know this question is a little niche, but I'm really curious what you ladies say. I've had my belly button pierced since I was 13. My older sister had hers done, and I thought it was cute, so I begged my parents to let me get it. There wasn't much of a long-term plan behind it, honestly.
Fast-forward to present day; I'm 23 and in my second year teaching second grade. I can't even picture myself without a belly ring. It's a part of my personality lol. But this morning, one of my students saw my belly ring when I reached for something on a shelf. The whole class was fascinated by it and it became a big distraction. The situation was pretty embarrassing. I felt unprofessional for having a pierced belly button. I still want to have it for when I go out on the weekends, to concerts, etc. It made total sense to have a belly ring in high school and college, but now, I kinda feel in limbo.
