  • I can not speak for you or your daughter but I have a sister who our mom told her no she could not get it done and she pierced it herself and ended up in the hosp for a week with an infection. so i would say its not wrong to let her do it i mean at some point we have to realize that we dont live in the 90's anymore kids grow up faster now and if we dont let them do somethings then they are going to find ways to rebel and do worse. good luck with your decision hope it works out.

  • YES I WOULD. MY DD IS JUST TURNED 13 AND SHE WANTS HER LIP PIERCED. I'M REALLY THINKING ABOUT LETTING HER. I KNOW I WOULD IF SHE WAS 16.

  • No I wouldn't let mine. When they are 18 and over they can do what they want as long as it's legal.

  • I personally feel it's disfiguring, but whatever floats your canoe. I have told my own daughter, she can do the piercing thing when she's eighteen and not a day sooner.
