Grace had always thought of getting her bellybutton removed, but never thought it was possible short of going to a doctor — which she wasn’t about to do because she thought that a doctor wouldn’t have the requisite artistic vision. She also assumed a mod artist wouldn’t have the requisite skills — until she met Howie (lunacobra.net), who she’d originally gone to for ear pointing when he was guesting at Divine Canvas. Unfortunately she only had enough $$$ for one ear, so they sat down and chatted about other options — face cutting, subdermal implants, and so on… after a moment of silence she started lifting her top.
Before Howie had the chance to explain he wasn’t into trading sex for mods, she pointed at her navel and said, “can you get rid of this?”
After a bit of assessing her anatomy, the depth of her navel, and so on, he felt he could do it well. The procedure went quite quickly and with minimal trauma, and the healing was easy — just a little itching from the stitches. It’s now Grace’s favorite mod of all the ones she has, although it has stiff competition from the face cutting that Howie added to her collection a few months later.
