I think that if you're over 18, you ought to make your own decisions - after all I'm sure your Dad and boyfriend wouldn't wait for your approval before getting a haircut. A piercing isn't necessarily permanent, the belly-button is a good place to get pierced, as you can cover it up and decide when to show it off. Just make sure you get it done at a reputable place, and take good care of it. Oh, and wearing jeans and trousers which rub or are tight against the belly might be best avoided for a few weeks, until the sensitivity wears off. It's not like getting a tattoo which would be there for life - you can remove the ring and let it heal over any time you like, and the mark which is left will be tiny (as long as you've taken good care of the piercing). Do what you feel you want to! As self-expression goes, a pierced belly-button is one of the safest and least obtrusive. Men tend to get squeamish about such things sometimes, and as it's a fairly new trend, older generations don't understand it, and so fear it. You go for it girl!

Fair enough - if it's legal for you to then go for it! The law varies depending on which country you're from, and in the UK I believe it's 18, but as I say, if it's legal, then it's your right to. Incidentally, as you were wondering about getting a star rating, here's how I understand it. When your bracketed number is 100 or over, depending on how many positive ratings you get, and best answers (probably other factors too - I'm not entirely sure) you'll get a star rating. It goes up when people give you a "+" and down when you get a "-" on questions, responses and photos. Hope that helps, and all the best!

Hi. I have a 14 year old daughter who wants her belly, tongue and eye and nose pierced. She already has like 4 piercings in each ear so far. I really wish she will wait till she becomes a little older as she may not want to have holes in such places as it may not fit in the profession she may seek. Also, I won't allow here either to get those piercings until she gets old enough to really know what she is doing. she will have to go do it on her own, but I won't judge her for it. I know this is a little away from the piercing subject but I have a sister who got a tattoo and it is wayyy to big for one and now when she goes to where a dress, it is shown. Now she hates it or wishes she would have got a smaller one or located it somewhere else.

Tattooing and piercing is a form of personal self expression. That being said make sure that any time you get a piercing or tattoo that it's what you want. Although piercing don't have to be permanent depending on where you get pierced the little dot will show up. Tattoos are a whole different thing. They can be removed but the procedure is very expensive and painful. And it doesn't remove the tattoo it removes the ink which means you'll have a scar that looks like the tattoo. And in western culture tattoos and piercings are not good depending on what profession you plan to go into. Good luck in your decision.

ya but a pierce is different from a tatoo,when you get tired of the pierce you can take it out and you can barrely see the hole,i think you did the right thing with your daughter,but the belly pierce is a good idea....

Hi there. When I was 15 I wanted a belly ring too and my parents wouldnt let me get one. I waited until my Dad was away for a week and I peirced it myself in my room. It looked really cool and I was the envy of my friends at school but a week later it got infected and scabby - really gross. I ended up having to take it out and it healed up but there is now a scar there. My parenst were mad - but it was done. I would like to get it done again sometime but I would go have it done professionally. I know you Dad is just looking out for you and that is veryu frustrating especially if you are rebelious. I hope you are enjoying your belly ring and be careful if it gets infected make sure you see a doctor so you dont get sick - it can happen quickly. Why doesnt your boyfreind want you to get it? I can understand your Dad not wanting you to get it but your boyfreind? I hope he is not controlling about other things.

Some people don't like the idea that you can get a nasty infection from them. Others simply don't like how they look. If you're over 18, it's your decision. If you're under, your parents get to decide what you do to your body.

I wouldn't worry about what your boyfriend thinks, it isn't his body and you are not under his authority. Since you are under 18 you do need to respect your father though. If he doesn't want you to have one then you should wait until you have moved out of his house, live on your own and can support yourself to get the piercing.

Its not a matter of him paying for it, its a matter of you being respectful to his feelings on the issue. Whether you pay for it or not he does not want you to have it and as his child living in his home you should respect that. I wanted my cartilage pierced when I was 16, legally I could have gone and done it, but my mother told me that she did not want me to. I still wanted it. I was going to pay for it. I waited until I was 18 and living on my own to get it pierced. I didn't wait because it was my mom's money or because I thought she was right, I waited to show that I respected her.

Well I know that where I live you may not get pierced without a parents permission before 15 after that what the heck if you want to do it, do it. I personally think it looks rather good, in the proper amounts ofcourse.

I wanted mine doing since I was 9 (Britney Spears's influence) and my parents didn't let me until I was 15! If you want it doing and your 16+ then just do it! Just make sure you go somewhere clean and you look after it. Besides if you don't like it later down the line you can just take it out and let it heal over.

It's your body, do what you want. Just be careful with a bellyring. A lot of people I know got their's infected for not taking care of it enough. I guess that due to the location, you need to pay extra attention to it. So when you get it done, ask them everything that you need to know about it - or read up on it online before you get it done.

I think your parents and your boyfriend do want you to get hurt. Pircing may leave a hole there, blood, or body fluid may leak out. Also there a bacteria everywhere, they even floating in the air. Your body will be infected and you will very likely to fall ill.
