Migrating Navel Piercing
Friday, May 18, 2012      2 comments

I've noticed in the last few weeks that the inner hole for my navel piercing is migrating. How annoying. So I've read up on migration and rejection of piercings and decided that whatever will be will be. Navel piercings are at a higher risk o... Read more
