Disgusting infections, it would probably hurt, and in my opinion it doesn't really look cool. I can't think of any pros, sorry. :P

Cons: I honestly thinks it's really gross and doesn't look good. Also, Since you're still growing, it can get stretched and rip your skin. (Yuck!)

Pros: Different, and you would like it

If you take care of it properly you will not get infection (provided that the facility you go to is clean an uses sterile products).
The top of your belly button doesn't hurt as much as the bottom of your belly button to get pierced (which of course is different for everyone).
If you've had it in long enough prior to pregnancy you can leave it in up until it starts to get irritated (it may not) and after labour you can put it back in.

I think soon enough bellybutton studs and rings will fall back OUT of fashion. Like the tattoos on women's lower backs. Tattoo artists got rich off of them for a few years, but now I hear jokes about them. Sorry to the women with these tattoos, just an observation. I think the danger comes when TOO MANY people do the same thing. Not the tattoo or piercing itself.

Haha like people at my highschool. One person gets a tattoo, they all do. And alot of dudes end up getting the same one. Cross on the arm. I laugh and am like. Dang that original in a convincing voice.

Yeah, sometimes people say they are doing something to be different and to be a rebel when, in fact, they're following a group. Ironic!
Report as
Tattoos have been around a lot longer than a few years and aren't really just a trend. It's a way to express yourself. Big deal if someone gets them on their back - shame on the people who make fun - who are they to judge?
Report as
funny but now two years later and bellybutton piercings are more mainstream than ever and each piercings in general and tattoos are looked at to be more artistic and worldly people.

Well let me just say that when saying they look trashy realy depends on the person who is wearing it. I am not some trashy girl flaunting herself everywhere. I am a straight A perfectionist who is developing an eating disorder and is looking at this opportunity to raise my self esteem, and I think they are just gorgeous

Go get counseling. Tattoos and piercings aren't going to help. Just mask everything by making guys think your easy.

If she wants a piercing to boost her self confidence who are you to judge her. It's her body. You aren't get parent, and by you'd saying it would make her look trashy do you really think that would help anything. Just because you're behind a computer screen doesn't mean you can be a jerk.

You are all talking about a fifteen year old kid getting a tattoo. And a belly button piercing for "confidence". Why a belly button piercing for confidence? Who is going to be seeing it that she needs self esteem for? Now do you have it in your heads.
Report as
I think getting my belly button done is a good idea, and I am still going to get one..as for my eatin disorder, I am not yet ready to tell my mom or anybody for that matter, that I have been starving, cutting, and forcing myself to vomit. thanks for your comments though

I have mine done , some like them some don't but I will tell you do it in the winter months less chance of infection since you don't sweat as much but as long as you keep it clean you should be ok , pros cute and self expression and unlike tats if you get tired of it you can always take it out / cons i don't know I love mine

A con could be that in a lot of sports you are not allowed to wear them. For example my daughter is a cheerleader and they are not allowed to wear them while practicing or at a game or competition. So if you are on a team I would check with your schools policy before you get one because you can't take them out for awhile after getting it.

They make special rings for when your pregnant, it leaves a scar but every piercing leaves a scar, if your not in the best shape it does not look to nice, you can't really see it. It's a nice starter piercing, hardly hurts, they have some cute jewelry, it's not a piercing you get and keep for a long time, it's faddish,

Pros: youll look kinda cool for a few years..... Maybe

Cons: when you get pregnant, the hole stretches and gives you a NASTY scar down your stomach! Happened to both of my aunts. And they can get infected
