What do I do if my mom thinks me getting a lip ring will embarrass her?

(She allowed me to get one, just to let you guys know) I plan on getting a lip piercing in about three months, but my mom keeps sending me signals that she'll be embarrassed if I go to a public place with her while having a lip ring in. I think she's afraid that it's gonna make her seem like to the public's eye that she's neglecting me for me to get one. So I'm actually confused on whether I should continue to get one or not for her sake. Please help? Thanks in advance.

As a Dad.... I have a daughter that wanted her eyebrow pierced then her tongue pierced, I thought I would be embarrassed... then I realized or woke up to the fact that this is my kid. I love her and will never be embarrassed by her. She doesnt always make the best choices but... Neither did I nor do I. Just because I may or may not like something doesnt mean that I should not allow her to have her individuality. She has grown into a beautiful young woman and is married with 2 beautiful kids. She is also a very wonderful mother to those kids. No regrets from this Dad.

Now, this is something that only you can decide. Talk to your mom and get her thoughts on the whole ring thing and then take that into consideration when deciding. If she will be really embarrassed, then perhaps you might want to drop the idea.

i dont think you should.. or maybe talk to her about it and ask why she doesn't want you to get one. my mom wouldn't let me get a 2nd pierce in my ear because she said i will look cheap and slutty so i couldnt even get that! you also dont want your mom feeling embarrassed to walk around with you.. that would not be a good feeling.

Thanks, if the talking to her doesn't work tomorrow, I'll try to find something else. Which would be kinda hard considering I'm a little stubborn when trying to find other things. Hah.

Is there anything else that you can treat yourself with, some keepsake to buy, that would make you happy?

Yeah, but I'd be afraid that me and her would get in more fights than usual. So I would rather take the safe road and go with everyone else to talk to her before making a decision I may regret between me and her.

Uhh.. get one anyway. And just to mess with her, get some illusion body piercings on your ears and tongue to freak her out. A lip ring isn't that drastic. I got two of'em.

She would flip with the tongue piercing. One of my brothers friend had one, and she'd always say it was stupid to get one. :l And I would probably be crossing the line with the whole illusion thing. Even faking snakebites, she would get mad. I would know. Considering I asked for them instead of a lip ring. But now I'm stuck with the lip ring. Maybe I'll just get two like you. I'll count that for her not letting me get the snakebites, I guess.

I did the illusion thing to my mom a year ago. She nearly passed out but when I told her they were fake she was like "Well, as long as you don't look like someone shot you multiple times with an aoutomatic stapler, I don't care what you do to your face." Now I only have snakebites and a couple on my eyebrow, and my mom was just happy I didn't seriously want holes in just about every sqaure inch in my face.... In other words, she's a little grateful :P

Oh, wow. A bit rude to tell someone it looks like they've been shot with a automatic stapler, don't you think? I don't think I would be able to pull off that stunt either, I think it would end in a fight rather than her allowing me to get another piercing.
