  • Absolutely not. She needs to wait till 18.

    Of course, I don't think belly button piercings are appropriate at ANY age, but that's me! Didn't even get my ears pierced till I was nearly 30!

  • Not my kid, not my decision.

    I would not let my DD get one at 14.

  • I wouldn't let any of mine do that at that age. I wasn't a stickler against piercings but belly buttons tend to infect easier and 14 is too young anyway.

  • I'm with gdiamante. I don't think they are appropriate for any age. I certainly wouldn't allow my 14 yr old to have that done.

  • Nope, not at 14.

  • I am so glad my mom said no at 14

  • i was always so jealous of my friends that had their belly buttons pierced when we were in highschool and my mom would never let me. now that i have 3 daughters i understand why. if she wants to get that done she can do it when she turns 18 and doesnt need your consent
