      Prague Tribune and other local publications seem to agree with you.

      Here is one description that I found:

      http://www.jasnazprava.cz/index.php/article/articleview/1133/1/148/

      Nazev Pupendo znamena "male skolni mucenícko", kde pry nejde o zivot
      ani o zdraví, jakysi obrad zasvecení v detske parte, kdy musí novacek
      vydrzet stípnuti kovove mince na holem pupku, aby se pak pysnil jejím
      zarudlym otiskem. Podobny ritual, lec v drsnejsi forme, dnes pada do
      oblasti takzvane sikany, objevil se i mezi sportovci, kteri pry
      mlatili mladsí hrace do tez casti tela medaili.

      I have never heard of any such practices going on in Britain but if
      you can make do with a very ad hoc solution, how about "belly-
      buttoning"? :-)
