Piercings At 12

belly buttonA friend of my youngest daughter just got her belly button pierced. To make it worse, she did it herself! Now my kids are not into piercing anything, including ears so there is no interest.

I understand the allure of teenagers and young adults but this girl is just 12. Now I have always said that if the worst thing my kids do is color their hair, get a tattoo and pierce themselves, I am probably ahead of the game.  But at 12, I am thinking way too young.

What do you think? Too young?

    I am 13 and i have 13 piercings.i have 3 lobe piercings on each side and on my left ear i have 2 cartilage piercings and on my right i have four i also have my belly pierced. I dont think getting your belly button pierced at 12 is bad i got mine done when i was 12 and i absolutely love it if you dont let your daughter get it done she will only want it more and probably do something stupid like do it herself

    I know I’m a little late, but in case others are in the same situation and need some advice, I think that you should let her keep it. If she feels confident and beautiful with the piercing, nothing terrible can come out of that. Just make sure she knows to ask in the future and show her scars of that area once piercings are removed and scarred over so she can commit to it. Check on the piercing often and remind her to clean it often because that is a fragile area and when the procedure isn’t professionally done, it can be more prone to infection and longer healing time.

    Im 12 years old. Getting body piercings is a little obsessive. Especially when you do it youself. My mom got my ears pierced when I was 5 months old. And today I got a second set of holes. I was going to get my cartilage pierced but I have to wait 3 months until I turn 13. A few things go to far. Face and body piercings under 16 is wrong. If it is on your ears I’d assume its okay. As long as you have parent consent. But not letting them get their ears pierced does go a little far, but you are their parent and it is up to you.
