My mom is very strict and she thinks that belly button piercings are slutty but I want one.. HELP!!! I am 15 and live in Iowa!

Report as

I wanted one when I was 15 too, and guess what? I'm 19 now and I still don't have one! My life is not over, and I'm still very young.

If your mom says no, then you have to deal with it and wait!

If you want one, and your mom says no respect her opinion. Wait until you're 18 and you can do whatever you want. You don't desperately need one.. I'm sure you can wait a few years.

They are. I'm not a parent but I think their ugly in my opinion and it hurts. You should listen to your mom because soon you will regret it soon.

You are young, still you don't know what's right and what's wrong, your mama wants what's good and safe for you so don't argue with her, she knows the right thing for you :)
Stay straight N' virgin :)

Meet her halfway with a compromise; give her something she wants (cleaner bedroom, better grades, better attitude, etc.). Or just get it done anyway that's how I dealt with my first tattoo.

Get a job ... move out to your own place ... pay your own bills.

THEN you can do what you want, without getting your mom's permission.

Well... you should tell your mom that its time that she should start supporting you since your nearly an adult, and you should say that if one day you decide to no longer have the piercing then you can just take out the ring and the hole will grow back as if nothing was ever there! :) Hope this helps!

Well, she's your mother, and as long as you're under 18, what she says goes. Wait until you're 18 and old enough to pay for it and do stuff yourself. In my opinion, they're trashy. Oh, and you live in Iowa.

You're last question asked about a cartilage piercing too. And that you live in Iowa. Don't go pokin' your body full of holes.

They're really trashy and I agree with her, it's like if someone has their tongue pierced, you just meet them and that's the impression that rubs off, why would you get it done? Especially belly button, it's meant to give you the butterflies in your belly when someone goes you know, down and they usually stop to play with it. It is what your mom puts it out to be.

People dye their hair because they don't like the color or like something else better, a tongue piercing is only for sexual purposes
Report as
like I want to die my a lighter brown because I think mine is way to dark. People with piercings just want other people to notice them more.

Help!! You're 15 and you live in Iowa. Wait till you're 18 and make all your own decisions. Then the bad ones won't be someone else's fault.

Well, most piercings can affect how others see you for the rest of your life. 15 is to young for realizing those effects. Most of the girls at my school who have belly button piercings (but not all) are the sluts. Maybe that's why she thinks that about belly button piercings. Also, you live in Iowa, just like me :)

They aren't slutty, or trashy. I got mine when I was 14 but only because my mom believes "it's your body, if you can pay for it you can do whatever". But if your mom says no, then you'll have to just wait.

I live in iowa too! And my cousin got a belly piercing and it got infected really badly. I don't like them and you have your hole life to get on. But if your determined give them the pros and cons and say you'll pay for it.

I had a friend who got one and they went too deep when they pierced it. Since your belly button is so close to your stomach, she got a really bad stomach infection. I would not risk it.

It's not a tattoo. As far as I know you don't need your parents signature, so make the money on your own through chores and go get it yourself. Then his it from your mother. Probably best to get it in winter, so there's no way she will see it.
