Its not dangerous, other than the fact of sterilization. Make sure the peircer is certified, the place is clean, and they use a new needle. I have mine peirced, it its no big deal. It took a while to heal though, about four months...still got infected, and then I was on swim team, and the chlorine really helped it heal, but youre only supposed to swim after a few months. Good luck, oh and it doesnt really hurt!
