After some brief speculation, Kendall Jenner has confirmed that her nipple is, in fact, pierced. While promoting her Estée Lauder fragrance at Macy's, the model told Page Six, "It is true." Rather than talking about Modern Muse Le Rouge, Kendall answered questions about her new body accessory, explaining her reasoning behind it. She said, "I was going through a period in my life, having a rough time, being a rebel and was like let's just do it."

Albeit feeling rebellious, Kendall was still pretty scared, mentioning, "[I was] so terrified, I'm laying on the bed like why am I doing this." Jenner did not shy away from details, getting into her expectations versus reality of the not-so painful procedure:

Honestly, it hurt but wasn't as bad as everyone made it seem and maybe because everyone hyped it up and I thought it would be really, really bad. Then it wasn't as bad as I expected.

There you have it, the Kendall Jenner method for getting a less-unpleasant nipple piercing.The more you hype up the pain, the less it hurts.
