Why is my navel so sore and why was it so hard to pierce? ?

Ok, I'm going redo this question since my last attempt was too long!! I've got my top and bottom navel done, vertically (yes I know it's not normally a piercing guys would get, but I've done just about everything else, so I thought I'd give it a go) Then I decided to do the sides as well, horizontally so it made like a cross. The problem was it was REALLY hard to pierce, the lady said my skin was being really 'tough' and 'stubborn' and it hurt like hell. Now it's a few days later and it's REALLY sore and bleeding a fair bit from the sides. My question is, is it normal to have skin that's tough and really hard to pierce? It's never happened to me before and I've had everything else done. And is the extreme soreness anything to be concerned about? I've never had any other piercings be this soar before.
