Teenage Girls With Belly Button Rings

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!

Pierced on the bottom?

Belly Piercing Story

Ever since I was little I wanted to get my belly button pierced. My older sister got hers done once she turned 18 but i just COULDNT wait that long (that would be another 3 years). When I was little my sister told me that i have the perfect belly button to get it pierced on the bottom or top. so I was always kinda thinking of getting it on the bottom.

well I’m 15 now and i KNOW my mom would never go for that. She would come up with some sort of lame excuse. This was about the time that my mom helped me get a new debit card. so guess what i was thinking?!?

I went on the internet and bought a 8 piece navel piercing kit. you can only imagine what happened from there.

once it came in the mail, i had to tell my mom that it was for my friend devin and she doesnt have a card so she asked me to get it for her. LIE. :/ she believed me though.

so I decided to pierce my belly button on the bottom. and piercing it myself was NOT easy. especially since im deathly afraid of needles.

i had to ice it for the longest time and i was really scared so i tried to do it slowly. i would get it almost through but not completely breaking the skin on the other side and then the numbing would go away. so i had to hold the needle there and ice it at the same time. I decide to be brave and just shove it through real quick. omgosh when it broke the skin on the other side, i was discussed. it made the most awfulest sound ever. like when your popping a zit and you just hear it pop. IT WAS GROSS. so once i got the ring in, i was super excited.

I wanted to go and tell all of my friends, and i did.

having a belly button ring is kinda a hassle though. like when i had volleyball games i had to take it out and i was really scared that i went through all that and it was gonna close up real quick.

so to this day, my mom doesnt know. 🙂
