I really want my belly button peirced but I dont know how to get my mum to let me have it done, also does it hurt and what are the bad things about it? please tell me I really want it done!
I got my belly button pierced at 14, under no condition. It dosen't hurt, and stop nagging your mum bout it, trust me shes a lot more likely to say yes if you stop asking her or if you only ask her once a month. And don't go behind your mothers back, imagine how hurt she'd be. These were the rules I stuck by so that I could get my belly button pierced.
1. Researched information, safety on were to get it pierced.
2. Stopped asking for a while, just talked bout it a little with my cousins and brothers and got their opinions on it.
3. Made sure knew what was doing by going to the surgery and asking bout them. ( This is really a point thats hard, since some people advise against it, but luckly the woman we saw said she had her belly button pierced, and even gave us the name of the place where she went, it was nice and sterile, with an experienced piercer, it hurts like hell if its an enexperienced piercer.
4. Go to the parlour (avoid tattoo parlours, since parents are more likely to say no and your more likely to infection, if you get an infection she'll never let you get anything else pierced, so keep it clean and pick a place that speciallizes in body piercings, avoid scary looking places cause she'll say no) speak to the piercer before hand, so your mum feels at ease.
5. Give her a few days to think bout it and there is a 75% chance she'll be more comfortable with it the next time you ask her.
P.S My mum bought the piercingh for me cause she caved before I got it pierced but she was still wary. My dad knew I wanted one but we didn't tell him I was getting it pierced, he was mad for a while, but then calmed down. Cause seriously mums understand more about the means of a piercing to a gril then dads do.
Yeh I want mine done too! Like so bad, so I am searching things on the computer etc and I came across this letter thing I didn't write it but it sounds good, so I am going to give it a shot, maybe you should to. Here is the letter, It makes you sound mature and stuff:
There are many reasons why I believe I should be able to have the right to do what I want with my body to some extent. I am not asking for a large tattoo on my arm or a nose ring. I am asking for a belly button piercing that will rarely be shown to the public. I guess right now you are probably asking "Why would she want one if the majority of the people won't ever see it? To plainly put it, I believe it is a fashion statement and an expression of my individuality. I understand that it is harder for the older generation to comprehend piercings in locations other than the ears. But looking back through history it is obvious that culture has changed significantly since the early and mid 1900s. Society is ever-changing. Twenty to thirty years ago the idea of piercing ones navel was unthinkable, but as those that decided to rebel against society emerged, new fads and styles were developed. In today's culture it is much more common to practice body modification in not only the ears but also the nose, belly button, tongue, eyebrows...Etc. I hope you recognize my maturity in writing this short paragraph and I hope that now you see my opinion on this subject. And if it provides any comfort I'm not planning to get one until my birthday because even I believe that a belly button piercing at this age is somewhat rushing things. All I'm asking is for you to reconsider your opinions on the matter.
This might not not help but I felt like typing something. I was 14 when I got my done. I'd asked my mum a billion times and tried purswading her in everyway imagineable but she wouldn't let up. Trust me, I'm 19 now and if there's one thing I've learn't about my mum it's that she's an rightup tight arse that lives by old fashion values. unless your close with your mum, my advice is give up asking after 2 months. Anyway my friends were great. We all got together and made a plan so I could get it done. What we did is when Tia had her birthday party, we got her mum to sign the permission slip that I could get it done, (she's really great. she understands us teenage girls and while she has limits, she knew we would of figured out a way to get it done anyway), and walked all the way to the other side of town to get it done. Three of my other friends got nose and lip piercings while we were there but their parents were cool with it. It was 18 mouths before she found out. It would of have been longer but one day she came really to pick me up from the pool. she was absolutly furise when she found out, but that goes to show what a hard up christian she is. Anyway it was so worth it.
My best friend and a few of my other friends are gunna get their bellybuttons pierced during march break, and I really wanna get my bellybutton done too but my mom doesn't knoe this yet, my mom is really old fashioned because I asked for a second piercing on my ear and she said only if I went to the doctor's office(I seriously hate my doctor and she knoes that) and I always wash the dishes and help around the house and she almost never gives me money, therefore if I ask her and get my friends' moms to talk to her maybe she'll see that it's not such a bad thing.
So just talk to your mom and research a lot so she knows that you really want this piercing because the worst thing that can happen is that she'll say no. And DO NOT thrash out and stomp to your room and slam the door shut(trust me it doesn't work, I've tried,) I've done that about a few times and she always says no, but if you just silently mope around your house and go to your room(make sure she sees it) and like cry a little bit, she'll probably come around and let you get it
im tryign to get my mom to let me get it done too. she keeps saying absolutely not. but if you reasurch it and tell her that you know how to take care of it and all that stuff she might let you. if not then tell her that most girls pierce theres at home and that most of those dont end up good and that your smarter than that so thats why you are askign her but if she doesnt say yes you will do it yourself ( dont because girls have died from it ) but that you would like her to be a part of it and its a cute new trend that everyones doing and you dont want to feel left out. plus cry a little bit so she feels bad. (: hope that helped
oh im 14 I don't know how old you are but my mom is really stubborn and this is starting to work on her.
im not sure how you can convince your mom but I have mine pierced and it hurt really bad. I think it depends on where you get it done though, because I know osmeone else who said they numbed her so she didnt even feel it. I got mine done at a tattoo parlor. you have to clean it really good for a while, and while its healing its real sensitive and if you hit it on somehting it hurts like hell. but if you keep it cleaned and everything then it should be fine :)
see my mom will let me but she wont admit it because my dad doesnt want me to get one because he thinks im growing up too fast already. He wants me to stay his little girl forever it sucks but I almost got them to just say youll pay for it yourself if you can cause sometimes theyll use that as an excuse or ask for good reasons not to and theyll say it will get infected say ill clean it atleast twice a day and think of good anwsers back or theyll say no
If your mom won't let you get a belly button ring, then she probably has a really good reason.
Parents an get on your nerves A LOT. But they just have your best interest at heart. Wait until you're 18 and then it's legal for you to get a belly button ring.
Until then, you kind of HAVE to wait. Unless you have your mom's permission, you can't get one.
my mom said no
but I went out
and got it done at a tattoo parlar
she was mad 4 about 2 days then got over it
and then she realized she cant change anything
it was worth it
if your not 16 then you need your parent
so if your not just wait an get it done
they cant do anythin after its been done
I have to same problem but here is my answer: surf the web and find out some stuff about belly peircing and tell her some benefits(good parts of the situation).And she will loosen up.And if any of your friends have one, maybe you could have your friends parents convince your parents what it is like.
I'm 13 and I already have my nose pierced my cartilage and 3 other ear piercings on both sides my moms easy to persuade buttttt she said no when I asked for my belly button and to be honest I just kept bugging and bugging and telling her I'm not gonna sad her or give her attitude it worked I'm getting it done tomorrow
it does not hurt seriously. I got my cartilage and belly done in the same day they were both done in 10 minutes. I was in screaming pain a few day safter because my cartilage swole up so badly. I've had them both for about 2 months now, id get it done babe it is so cute when you can change it ! :)
I was 12 turning 13 when I got it done it hurts and to convince them I had to just ask every day and I said I would look after it and I would pay for it and I did that everyday for like 3 monts and they said yes or if that doesent work I dunno just to let you know it might get infected easy
I want my belly button done im 13 and I am triing to persuade my mum and I think she is taking into cinsideration that its my body and my dad is taking me next week to have it done hope it doesnt hurt tuu much
I would try being really nice to your mom, and also being mature. Show her that you are mature enough to get something done like that. I'm 12 and I want mine done sooo bad.
I want a belly button ring 2 but mom wont let me I wanna get it done behind her back but if my dad finds out hell be pissed ! what should I do ?
thats up to her dear
