My parents won't let me get a piercing...

I'm mature and responsible for my age. I'm willing to pay for the piercing myself, and I have good grades in school... (Actually ahead in school) my parents were horrible teens, my father didn't even graduate high school and my mother got pregnant when she was fifteen(sad/gross, I know.) and they won't let me get a piercing and I'm a good kid.. anything I can do? They've let me stretch my ears and die my hair, I'm sure they'll let me get a piercing... but not sure. Any advice or help?

Your parents may not want you to go through what they went when they were kids. You need to gain trust from your parents by showing them how responsible you are. Try not to disobey them and do not show them attitude. With time, I believe they will let you get a piercing.

Wait, where do you want the piercing?

Because I'm mature for my age ahead of my class and I've stretched and died my hair before but I can't get facial or body piercings because I'm not old enough

I love those piercings! And I'm cool with not being able to because I'm getting a job in December and I'm not allowed to have facial piercings there :/

Excuse me for my ignorance. What is a "monroe" piercing? What I'm picturing in my mind is a piercing on the cheekbone. Sort of like Marlyn Monroe's beauty mark on her cheek.

Cool (: and that's a bummer.

A Monroe Piercing is close to the upper lip, where Marilyn Monroe's beauty mark was.

You can tell them that since they are not able to listen to reason you have no choice but to do it without their permission

I let my daughters get their belly buttons pierced with their own money, but my younger daughter wants snake bites. We've agreed to disagree, and I'm just happy knowing she's waiting until she's 18. There's not much parents can do to protect their children from the world, but it sounds like your parents have tried to get you ready.

They probably have their reasons for saying no. All you can do is ask them to see your side. If you can't get them to change their minds, just wait. You might change your mind, and if not, 18 probably isn't that far away.

Not sure if you have asked them yet since you said they won't let you and then you said you re sure they will let you? maybe location of the piercing is not to their standards? Also, don't use your parent's past anything to do with your upbringing. Either way, you re under their roof, so their rules. Even if you manage to get it, they will prob make you take it out..so no point. Be mature like you say you are and wait until you are truly mature.
