I'm not sure she was right about that, but I was able to get my flap-less navel pierced at eighteen, and I've loved it ever since. When I change the barbell, I always think my unadorned stomach looks strange and naked.
Small hijack, but yes, she was right. However, anywhere without a natural ridge usually needs specially-shaped jewellery, called surface bars, or it tends to grow out. [/hijack]

I've never understood why people are weird about belly-buttons. I suppose it's just one of those different = bad things.
