Outies out, innies in: the vogue for belly button reshaping surgery

Today 16:24 GMT

It was 1998, at Camden market in north London, on my lunch break from school: £15 changed hands followed by the blissful scrape of the needle pushing through the flesh of my belly button.

Plus, I had an outie (the shame!), and the prospect of bejewelling my crater-like belly button was too exciting to resist. Unfortunately, the bolt of metal in my stomach did not feel as attached to me as I was to it and, after weeping and turning a vibrant shade of red, my skin rejected the piercing.
