Kendall Jenner said she was going through a rebellious phase when she got her nipple pierced.

“I was going through a period in my life, having a rough time, being a rebel and was like, ‘Let’s just do it,'” Jenner said during an interview Monday. “[I was] so terrified, I’m laying on the bed like, ‘Why am I doing this?'”

“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.” (PHOTOS: Kylie Jenner Through The Years)

The 19-year-old pierced her nipple with a bar that has two balls on each end, and though she’s been trying to conceal it, it could be seen through her black dress at the ESPY Awards in July.

The younger Jenner sister, Kylie, got her nipple pierced in April and shared photos of it on Snapchat — the social media app where photos disappear within 24 hours. (PHOTOS: This Family Photo Kendall Jenner Shared Is A Little Awkward)
