Report as
yeah you should. it does hurt as my friends have told me. that you cant sleep on it and you have to be careful about the cloths you wear because it can get caught. it doesnt hurt when u first get it done but afterward it will. both of my friends just got it done and they both said it only hurts for about a month then its ok. and its better to get it while ur in the winter so it doesnt get infected while swim in the summer.

If you want it done really badly explain it to your parents. Even if they don't listen they should know WHY you want it, other than because you think it's cool. I don't think there's a problem with it. My friend is 14 and he got his tongue pierced... But don't do it behind your parents back if they won't let you. They'll never let you get things like that done if u do it behind their backs. Just tell em it's a form of self expression and hopefully they'll support you.

I was just talking to a friend yesterday whose college-aged daughter got a facial piercing. The mom was telling me that apparently her daughter didn't hear her when she said if she got any body art other than the one set of piercings in her ears, they wouldn't pay for her college. And that daughter is a lot older than you are! You still live at home and still rely on your parents for food, shelter, etc., which means you still have to follow your parents' rules.

well, remember, when you grow up, and go to get a job, having a ring in your face will make getting accepted in a College, or getting a job, much harder. You should wait until your older, and then think about whether or not it is worth it.

not true
Report as
Completely true. Why does no one with excessive piercing not realize they are kinda weird/gross to everyone else? It's ok to have them, as long as you realize how it affects other's views of you. 13 years old is to early to realize this.
Report as
13 years old is too young but the college and job thing is not true they really dnt judge you for looks
Report as
most places do. Especially ones that require interaction between the person with the piercing and customers.

Waste of money and time. I know a girl who did that and she couldnt wear it anywhere because the school made her either wear a band-aid over it or take it out.. needless to say the piercing didnt last long. Also how attractive is that really? :-*)

No... I'm sorry but that's a MEGA No. But when you do get your lip pierced, beware of the pain cuz your lip will swell. Or if you get a tongue piercing, then you would only be able to drink things....for like....... I don't even know how long.... but it is a while.... Try asking when your older if you still want it. Hopefully your dad will let you get a lip piercing then.....

Not no but HECK NO I wouldn't let any of my kids get one. If they wanted one, it would be when they can legally get one without my permission(18) and out of my house. Oh I would like to add that almost ALL jobs will have you remove it before work.

wait until your 17 and see if you still want it then. your style will probably change within the next few years and then you may not even like it anymore. It looks trashy for such a young girl to have a lip piercing.

No because at that age they change their mind so much no matter how much they will fight you and tell you how much that they really do want it. Also remember, if you do let her get it, then if in a year or so she doesnt like it anymore she will have a scar there for the rest of her life.

when i was 14 i had my lipped pierced for my birthday. 11/30. at 16 i had my tongue pierced and gauged to a 8. at 8 i had both of my ears pierced and gauged. by the time i was 14 my ears were a double 0 and i had a foot long mohawk. now that im 20 all that is gone. i have 2 tattoos and am going to school to be a aerospace engineer. in 6 months im also going through the police academy. i think you should be allowed to be yourself as long as you are mature and can handle the responses you will get from others and dont do it yourself!!! theres no reason to wait until your 17. your style may change but a piercing comes out with a very small scar if you scar at all. its not a tattoo. a piercing isnt with you forever. im glad my mom allowed me to be myself when i was younger. it helped me find myself and shape me into the man i am now.

sorry gurrl but you're too young. you shouldnt get a lip piercing until you're 18, also, its expensive and painful and permanent. you get rid of it, HOLE IN YOUR FACE and your parents are right. dont do piercings.

I think if you came up with a really good answer why, they should let you. But don't tell them that you want one because everyone else is getting one, because then they'll probably tell you to 'stand out' and not get one. I think your closest bet is to tell them that getting a lip piercing would make you feel special. I'm pretty sure that every parent wants every one of their children to feel special. If this doesn't work, then I'm sorry if I wasted your time.

If you ever want to get a job, I'd say forget getting your tongue pierced. It's also pretty gross. You can't do any Albert Einstein-style pictures if you have a tongue piercing. It will get in the way of eating ice cream. When (if) you have kids, they will rip it out for the sake of curiosity. But you won't have kids, because no one will want to marry you. You'll be condemned to ugliness and unemployment for the rest of your life. You'll be that fat/biker chick in the bar. Your parents will disown you. You won't pass high school, you'll have no friends, and you'll be a drug addict hippie. Don't piece your tongue.
