Teenage Girls With Belly Button Rings

by bellyringsadmin on May 11, 2011

Common scenario; This girl is aged 14 and she really wants to get a belly ring because it’s cool, fashionable, many of her friends have it, and it just looks nice!

However, in many states the law says that before 18, children have to get their parents’ consent before getting a body piercing…

But think about this first – many people choose to PIERCE their children’s EARS while they’re still INFANTS!

Yes, it is nothing uncommon for a 6 month old infant to have their ears pierced – follow this link for more information about baby ear piercing.

And when a girl aged 14 decides to get her navel pierced…isn’t this decision by far more responsible if compared to one made by parents for their child who even can’t speak! Speak to tell them the piercing hurts, or feels sore? How can they know if an infection has started?

OK,  some might say the navel is just the beginning. Then comes the rest of the body, then the girl will get tattoos, start doing drugs etc. etc. But this is rarely the case. It’s a common misconception that piercing are a sign of immaturity or rebellion.

But better we look at this problem from a different angle. The latest trends suggest that belly button piercing has gone mainstream and should not be considered as body modification along with monstrous stretched piercings or facial piercings. Belly rings have become fashion accessories like rings, necklaces, earrings etc.

Look at these celebrities with belly rings.

Read this about belly piercing going mainstream.

And what would you say about diamond belly rings? I think that the very existence of such high-end stuff clearly indicates that not only punks pierce their navels:-). Gem and Crystal Navel Rings are cute and feminine, and look great as a fashion accessory.

To recap all this I’d like to point out another worrying thing. When teenagers are not allowed to get that long wanted belly piercing they sometimes perform self navel piercing. And this is bad. There’s infections and other complications that can and more likely will occur if the piercing isn’t performed by a professional piercer in a studio.

Read this story about self-piercing.

Understand this – I’m not saying – let’s threaten your mom you’re gonna do the piercing yourself. All I’m saying is that although the parents might not completely like the idea of their 13 of 14 year old daughter having their navel pierced, it is worth having it done in a professional manner rather than put the child’s health at risk.

And think about the experience the parents can share with their girls going to the piercing studioread this piercing story!


Join others who have submitted their belly button piercing stories and got them set up on this belly rings guide!

Tell everyone about where and how you got pierced, how you treated your new piercing and where you shop for the belly button rings.

uggg I am 16 and I have been wanting a belly pieicing since I was 13, my parents told me if I got all A’s and B’s this year I could get one.. well lets step back.. first they said.. when I was 13 they would think about 14, then when I was 14 they told me I could get it when I was 15 but I had to get my real moms permission. well that didn’t happen.. then I turned 16 and my dad told me for sure 16! but guess what.. apparently they didn’t say that and im making things up.. so they gave me this goal.. I just moved to this new school which is 1000000 times harder than my old one.. in the beginning of the year I had a couple D’s C’S and B’s .. so they told me if I got those grades up to all A’s and B’s I could get one.. so I have been working my hardest all year.. and I had all A’s and B’s.. then last minute my teacher put in a bad grade so now I have barlllly two c’s.. and the rest are A’s and B’s.. so guess what that means?!? no belly ring.. Honestly I no I didn’t meet my goal.. but I think they are just looking for every reason possible for me not to get one.. and they are hoping I change my mind.. so now I have been looking for about an hour now for a bunch of different reasons to get one and I am putting them all thoughout the house.. heheh im determined :) :) :) :) :) give me luck :D

I think all parents should let their kids get a belly button piercing! This is my only piercing I would have is my belly, it’s just like all the other piercings but these u can cover up! I’m happy my mom just said yes to me like there was no problem :) I’m not a tramp or slut or anything I want this for me, I think it will look great on me an all my friends will love it! :) for girls that need help asking there moms just say I’m responsible enought to handle this! This is my body I should b able to do what I want to it! And say like u never wanted ur belly done when u were my age? Or like u never had ur belly done when u were my age! Say there is much more worse things I could do like drugs or get a tattoo or anything but I only want one THIG which is my belly pierced :) hope that helped bye :)

I’m 12 and have my belly done all most over 6 mouths now and I have my nose done I got that over 2 years ago. You do the math. When I first asked my mom if I could get my belly done she said yes it’s up to ur dad..so then I asked my dad and he said no….then a week later I showed him a pic of what it would look like,how I would clean it,change the ring after it heeled and them the said my favorite the letter word…YES.(: I got it done a week later,after about 2 weeks a was looking at it and I see a bump on the top,and think it’s nothing and I just blow if off like it’s nothing and don’t show my mom. Then about a moth later I show her it an she though is was infected….so a few weeks later I when to the guy that pierced my belly and nose to change my ring and when we got there and he looked at it and said to me that I’m more than likely have a nickel allergy. So 2 mouths later we are on our way to my twin sisters football game (yeah I said it TWIN SISTER! Girls can play a male sport!) and on the way there we pass a tattoo shop called 717 tattoo on Jonestown Road in PA. Im a friend of there’s on Facebook (and u should be to) be for I went in the shop. They have a HUGE selection of body jewelry from eye brow rings to hood piercing rings. I was told by my piercer to get a titanium ring and the bump should go way and I did and now it looks so sexy and normal(: that’s my story what yours?

Good luck to all of u guys/gals(:

And if u mom,dad,gram,pap,aunt or who every u live with won’t let u get a belly piercing don’t keep asking every day Because ur making ur self look like a kid and ur chances of getting ur belly pierced are every slim to none if u keep asking!

Xoxo, Sierra s

I’m 17 and I’ve been wanting a navel piercing for over a year now. My dad says I can get one but my mom says no. I don’t think it’s a big deal. No one is going to see it until I go swimming im the summer. I know how to cate for it and I can pay for it myself. It’s not like i’m asking for a million piercings or tatoos. That’s just not me. All I want is this one navel piercing. My mom doesn’t even have.a reason for saying no other than “because”. She doesn’t even say “because I said so”. She says I have to wait until i’m 19.

Years ago (not entirely sure about now), my mum WANTED me to get my belly pierced. Not that she was forcing me, but she said, “Rena, when you’re older, you should get a belly ring. It’d really look good on you!”

I think I was.. eleven at the time? Now that I’m fifteen, I’m kinda considering it. But I would NEVER go behind my parent’s backs like that. I guess that’s just me.. I’m not exactly ‘rebellious’.

I’m 13, 14 in December, starting highschool this year, and I was always interested in belly piercings. I wanted to get it done at 14, I think since I was 11. Every time I bring up the subject with my parents they always say no. My mother was skeptical at first, but then she said yes, as long as I waited until I was 16. But obviously being in the family I was, I also had to get approval from my father. I tried formally bringing up the matter a couple times but he would just say no and try to change the subject. Whenever I asked him why he says no, he would say “because I don’t like it.” or “because I said so.”
I have a feeling he’s trying to say he thinks I’m just getting it because I want to show people and attract boys, then get into bad relationships, drugs, and so on, but actually I believe there in no point in getting a piercing if it’s not for yourself. I’m getting it because I know it would look good on my body type and I think it would compliment my belly. My mother even agreed saying it would look good.
I have always been a good child, getting good grades, dressing modestly, etc. but for some reason my father thinks this piercing is the beginning to a whole new person. I mean, eventually I’m going to get it done at 16 as this is the legal age in my country, I can promise you that. I just want both of my parents approval.
I know the risks, all the cleaning procedures, variations of pain, etc. and I personally think I would be ready for it if I got the chance tomorrow.
Also, I think telling your kids something like what my father told me is just an invitation to infect their navel by doing it themselves.
I think it all depends on the child themselves. If they dress appropriately, act responsibly, and aren’t getting it to follow the crowd, I would say 14 is the perfect age for a navel piercing.

Sorry for such a long post, I have strong feelings as a 13 year old who feels she should be allowed to get this piercing.

I think it’s rediculous that all these people are saying that at 14 your not ready to get one because your not responsible ? Like no that’s not it at all I’m a sophomore on high school and I’m pretty sure Ik what I’m doing, were not dumb? Lol (: <3

I’m 16 going on to 17 next month && I have myy navel pierced . Myy parents do NOT approve yet I did it myself .. thee part about shouldn’t do it yourself is kind of BS .. ALL in myy opinion .. Like I said I did myself && it did not get infected .. I got it done almost two years ago .. If you know how to clean thee piercing .. have a sterilized needle && a sterilized ring you’ll bee completely fine && your in a clean place it’ll bee fine .. But like I said that’s myy opinion ..

i got mine done yesterday, & the worst part about it was after you get it done, cause its realy sore. You just gotta remember to keep it clean. Oh yeah and im only 13, and i dont deal with pain good at all, and it didnt hurt me at all! Its really not as big as deal as people like to make it to be. But i wouldnt get it at 13 unless you look older cause everyone thinks im like 16. So yeah, if your going to get it just remember to keep it clean

Well I’m now 15 and my mom said I could get my bellybutton pierced, but my dad won’t let me!! He says,”No 15 year old daughter of his is getting anything pierced at all!” That is so stupid! He told me it will led to a pregnancy, guys look at me anyways so why does it matter?! I have clothes on most the time anyways except for when I go swimming. I got my ears pierced when I was 6 months old, but now I can’t get my bellybutton pierced bc he said it will attract more guy’s attention. My father is so stupid sometimes, he doesn’t understand anything.. But I’ll get it pierced, I promise.

Hey Im Taylor, and Im 16 almost 17 in may, and im getting my navel pierced this saturday, but Im so nervous, but also excited! :D Im still going to get it done, and over with because I`ve been wanting it for a while now, few months, and even when I was 13 I was considering it, but now Im possitively going to get it done, my awsome Dad said yes! He always does anyway..It`s not like im gonna change from one piercing and show off, and start doing bad things. That`s just not me at all, Im kind of a goodie good. Hehe! It`s weird though because it`s the 1st thing different compared to my twin sister now. :) Im also afraid of how awkward it will be in front of a stranger to show off your stomach, but `A girls got to do what a girls got to do`. I know I will love my navel piering once it`s all done and healed looking glamorous! Jeeze life story here. Bye!

The belly button is an erogenous zone; why would we want to decorate and draw attention to that area on a MINOR? Doing so is suggestive and introduces the possibility of other topics that MINORS are not emotionally ready for.

KIDS are growing up faster than they need to; they’ll be adults before too long and once youth is gone, it’s gone.

Seems like a lot of parents make poor decisions because they want to be cool and liked by their kids; remember… we’re raising people not BFFs!

I am 13 and i had mine done 4 days ago. It didnt hurt as bad as I thought it would it doesnt really hurt until it goes through the other side of the it. Then my dad wasnt wanting me to get it done but my mom said i could so I did while I had the chance too. Its worth it in the end though and I would recomend the bar bell instead of the ring because it hurts less and in some places it is cheaper too, but always make sure u get it done in a clean place and done by some one who has a card and stuff to prove it.

Yes I think that it’s too young for 11& 12 years of age girls to have their bellys peirced and so 13&14&15&16 are the ages where everything starts to change and us girls just wanna feel cool and good about them selfs and if they get it peirced and something goes wrong main point is a learning experience for them and their just going to keep bugging u until u crack and we all u moms today probley did the same and went behind their mothers backs or nages them for something like this so I say do it

honestly, i can’t believe what i am reading on this page. you girls are too young to be getting your belly button pierced. big deal if you have your ears pierced, thats nothing like a naval piercing. your parents tell you no, because you are TOO YOUNG. the age is 18 for a reason, as someone said before me. you should at least be in the middle of your junior year, or your senior year of high school before even considering getting your belly button pierced. you should be old enough to have a job and be able to pay for it yourself. also old enough to make your own decisions, which you are definately not at 12-15 years old. you shouldnt have to “beg” or “convince” your parent or guardian to take you to get this done. you should either be old enough to go by yourself, or close to 18.

I got mine done about 4 months ago. i am 18 years old, and i think that when you’re 13 or 14, you’re way to young to have a belly button piercing. 16 is a reasonalbe age to consider getting it done. for all you girls out there who are 11-16, just wait. you should’nt be flaunting your stomach when you’re that young anyway, except for in a bathing suit. but even then, you’re still a young girl. you have to learn to be patient and responsible to take care of it properly. it takes a lot of work to keep up with cleaning it. and you aren’t able to change it whenever you want. you have to wait at least 9 months before you can change it. my advice: wait until you’re older.

hi to everyone looking up this site. i am not a teenager, i am a mother of a teenager who wants to get her belly pierced. I myself had my belly pierced when i was younger. though i was 17. my daughter is only 13 (just) and thinks that her dad and myself are ruining her life because we have told her that she must wait until she is 15. We still think that 15 is pretty young for something so permanent, but told her that she needs to start showing more responsibility before we will consider her getting it done. does anyone think that 11, 12 and 13 years of age is too young for something so drastic to such young bodies??? considering that the female body doesnt stop growing until your 20′s ! and what it looks like if it does get rejected!! i do agree it looks beautiful when its done, but the scars from some outcomes are hidious… and the scars dont get rejected, they stay forever, so to all the young teenagers out there, yes it hurts, yes its beautiful, but whats the rush. if its so cool and you want it so badly and you dont plan on flashing it off to everyone, then whats the harm in waiting a little bit longer.

Hey im 12 and going to San Diego next month, unfortunatly I can’t get mine done until after I get back or I wouldn’t be able to swim, anyways I’m counting down the days :) I’m piercing mine myself because in Tucson,AZ u have to be at least 14 even with a guardian, but I’m using all professional sterile equipment I even have the clamp and hollow 14 g needle :) also my parents are perfectly fine with it. Well I was just wondering how much it hurt and how long the pain last when you actually pierce it email me with a response at lrod101997@gmail.com
XOXO,

I have my belly button pierced, I’m only 13.
I have 4 on each ear, my nose, my belly and soon my tongue and hopefully my lip. x
Honestly, belly button piercing don’t hurt, it does now.
When the man was cleaning around the area, that was the only thing that hurt.
I’ve had it done around a month, I really want to change it but I can’t, :D
Only 3 girls in my year have it done. x
It’s really red and sore now, probably infected. I went on hiliday and caught it many times, I was having so much fun I thought one day without cleaning it would be fine, Guess not.
It’s getting better, but the boys in school keep punching it, Tards.
I’ve used Savlon but it turns out I’m ellergic to it, nice.
My friends bump into it alot, OUCH!
But it’s ok and it’s really cool, I recommend getting it done, it doesn’t hurt. xxxx

hi im 12 and i got my belly button pieced about 3months ago and my mum said aslong as i didnt scream then i could have it done a few weeks later my dad seen it and he was ok about it even tho. he said i wasnt aloud it done …….it didnt hurt and i have changed my bar afew times but for about a month if anyone touch’s it ,it hurts like when i first got it done my friends didnt know and he bumped into me in school and it really hurt and started bleeding but only abit and when you have it done you have to buy a specail kinda spray called savlon and apply it morning and night and btw.try not to lie on it for the first month or so as it will hurt :) let me know if you get it done and if it hurts x

Hi. I am Anney. I totally agree about the piercing. I was the same I begged my mum to let me get it done, but she said if you ask your dad he’ll say the same thing “NO”.
When my dad left to go on his holiday I asked my mum when will I ever get it done and she said she doesnt know maybe when I am 18 or something. She said what would happen if your dad found out and I said exactly the same thing “its not like I am going to walk around the house with my top up” ( we’re so alike). on the next day my mum let me do it caus i begged her till i got on her nerves so now i hav one done and its not sore at all, except you kinda get borred with the same ring all the time but i had guts today to change the ring.It was okey.!!! wish you luck.Anney

My opinion is this; if you are unable to convey a proper sentence while spelling the words ‘the’, ‘my’, ‘they’, ‘that’ and many other simple english words you are also incapable of being mature enough for a navel piercing. You should be more concerned with your 8th grade english classes vs. a piercing. Further more, there is a reason why studios only allow those 18 or older get pierced without parental consent. Reason being, a majority of ‘kids’ are not mature enough to properly take care of a piercing. That said, there of course are plenty of ‘adults’ who are incapable of being mature enough also.

I’m 14 years-of-age and I got my belly done three days ago. I found a place where you don’t need parental consent. I told dad that night, and Mum the next day. They weren’t too happy, but it’s done now! I definitely reccomend getting it done. It doesn’t hurt a lot, and looks GREAT.

I’ve wanted something pierced for the longest time. I only have my earlobes pierced, and my parents are very much against tattoos/piercings. I think they’re a beautiful form of expression, though. I want to start out small and get a belly button ring, because they’re covered up with a shirt most of the year. The only time anyone else sees it is pretty much when you’re swimming. I’m 12 years old and I truly want to get it done. I’m thinking of putting together a presentation so my parents realize I’m mature and take me more seriously about wanting to get this done.

People should be allowed to make decisions like this when they are allowed to make other body-altering decisions like costmetic surgery. The age is up for debate but the concept is similar.

lol … im 18 i just got mine done and honestly yea the parents do need to consent for minors like okay an infant gets their ears done but they have the parental concent by letting just any old kid get stuff done it opens the piercers up to lawsuits like crazy it take out alot of safe gaurds such as the openness that would allow the 14 year old to get it check out by a doctor and at the age of 14 your to impulsive and underdeveloped to make that kinda decision by yourslf.

Well i’m 17….
And i wanted to get a belly ring for the longest(for about a year) and i think that 16 or 17 is a reasonable age to do that. But younger than that is Not a smart idea. Because 14 year olds are still growing….
So i think it is better to wait at least when you are 16. If you want to get your belly pierced so badly just get your cartilage pierced again it helps with the anxiety.
And im getting my belly pierced NEXT WEEK! So excited!
