Daughter accidentally reveals her secret nipple piercings to her mum… via an X-ray

This made for one awkward hospital appointment

WE IMAGINE there are quite a few people out there hiding piercings from their parents.

But one woman's cover was blown quite spectacularly - thanks to an X-ray.

Sydney Allen, 20 - from Clearwater, Florida - got her nipples pierced in June, as a birthday present from her sister.

They decided to keep their mother in the dark as she's "a bit conservative on appearances and hates tattoos and piercings".

Sydney tells Buzzfeed News: "Since I don't usually have my shirt off I thought it would be a very easy secret to keep."

Unfortunately, that all changed when she went for a routine X-ray this week... and took her mum with her.

As Sydney has syringomyelia - a rare condition that can build up fluid in the spinal cord - doctors needed to take a procedural X-ray.

What she didn't realise is that X-rays show all metals - so when her doctor pulled up the results, two barbells were clearly visible across her nipples.

Sydney later shared the picture on Twitter, writing the caption: "My mom found out I got my nipples pierced today."

Unsurprisingly, people found the awkward situation hilarious, with the post racking up over 35k re-tweets and 159k likes.

Comments included: "HAHAHAHHAH this is my worst fear dude," and: "Hahaha amazing! Mom probably freaked."

And yes, she did freak.

Sydney says: "My mum saw my piercings as soon as the X-ray popped up and the doctor and I started laughing hysterically."

Her mum was "visibly upset," saying: "We will discuss this later."

But luckily, she's now had time to get used to the idea.

Sydney continues: "I was initially terrified when the X-ray came up, but she ended up being pretty understanding since no-one can tell unless I show them.

"The picture does make her laugh now."

We bet Sydney's thanking her lucky bars.

Meanwhile, a breastfeeding mum drew a cartoon to show her husband why she’s grumpy in the morning... and everyone is loving it.
