  • tounge and belly button is too extreme for me, anything else you mentioned to me is ok.

  • In my opinion some of those piercings should wait a couple more years at least, but I am not her mom or dad, if it was my child I would compromise with the top of the ears but ask her to wait until she is 15 or 16 for any others and at that we will discuss what she wants and where

  • top of the ears i would say okay but NO WAY on the nose and tongue and belly button. nose at 15, but belly button and tongue not until shes 18 and can pay for it herself!

  • Not my daughter. I allowed her to get her cartilage done & everything after that she has to be 18 to do it. I just think it can send the wrong message, especially in someone so young.

  • My oldest had her cartlidge and nose pierced at 12. Eyebrow at 14, bellybutton at 16 and she is hoping for her lip or tongue. And my other DD just got her belly at 15.I don't have a problem with it, I think it really depends on the individual child and thier level of maturity. I would much rather have them get it out of thier sytems now then wait until they are 18 and looking for a job, at least this way they can be removed safely when the time comes for them to be an adult. It is merely a form of expression, not all kids are crying out either, at least with piercings they can be removed, unlike tattoo's.

  • UUUm noo!! That is an adult decision that she is not old enough to make let alone be considering!! Those kinds of things can be taken as sexual advertising to older boys. Not cool.
