Do what you decide, it's your body. If they love you they'll accept you for who you are, who you want to be, and what your characteristics are. Rebel!

Re: mom's orders?

Seeing as you're a minor, I think you should do as your parents wish. When you're eighteen, then you have every right to do whatever you want to your body.

Sounds like you need to talk to your parents though. I can't believe your mother said what she said. There is obviously more going on between the two of you.

Piercings are white trash. You'll regret it later.

Re: mom's orders?

If you are under 18, I think you should definitely listen to what your mom said. If you want it that badly, you should calmly just talk to her about it. Ask her why she feels the way she does about belly button rings etc. Don't be childish. If you discuss it like adults and try to understand her point of view, you may find that she's more open to listen to yours.

If you want to do things to your body you should either a) wait until your eighteen or b) wait until you move out of the house. Until then you have to respect your parent's wishes.

My mom also has this issue with piercings. She won't even let my sister get a second piercing in her ear. There's nothing you can do about the situation besides try to win your mom over, but do not under any circumstances go and get it done without approval. Good luck!

Rebellious aren't we prsurf Sug has to live with her parents. Does she really want to annoy her parents any more than they already are? 18 is a good age to exercise her long-waited for independence. I personally think belly piercings are cool... if you have the belly for it. But I'm a musician... What do I know

Re: mom's orders?

Why go and have your belly button pierced, just so it can be taken out when your parents find out? You are wasting time and money when you know that you cannot hide it forever and it will be taken away. Once your parents find out, it will just lower their opinion of you. It shows them your lack of respect for them and their rules. They will come down harder on you than ever before. Then when you want something else, they will be less likely to allow you to do it since they cannot trust you.

Trust is everything with parents. Trust equals freedom for you. If they can trust that you respect their rules and that you yourself make good decisions, then you will have more freedom. Freedom to go places because they trust you and your judgement.

When parents cannot trust, then you cannot stay out late, go to parties, etc.

Belly button piercing is just a poser fade. Like you said everyone you know has one. Why rebel and become grounded, lose your parents trust and respect and lose your freedom just to look like all of your poser friends?
