“It is true,” Kendall confirmed to Page Six regarding her wild new nipple hardware. The Estee Lauder model revealed during a launch party for one of the brand’s fragrances that “I was going through a period in my life, having a rough time, being a rebel and was like ‘Let’s just do it.’”

But it looks like a really painful way to deal with a rough patch in life. “[I was] so terrified, I’m laying on the bed like ‘Why am I doing this,’” she continued. “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.”

Kendall has joined the ranks of nipple piercers within her own family. Wild child little sister Kylie Jenner, 18,  has had her nipple piercing for quite some time. She first showed it off in January, when a pal of Kylie’s friend posted a pic, and it showed the reality star in a lavender halter top with no bra — exposing what looked like a tiny bar going through her left nipple.

Kylizzle later showed off her racy piercings on Snapchat in early April by posting a picture of herself with red circles around her boobs with the caption, “New jewelry in the other secret areas.” Kylie is definitely the exhibitionist of the family, so that didn’t shock us. Kendall is a little more demure – who knew she had a wild side like this?

HollywoodLifers, what do you think of Kendall’s nipple piercing?
