Piercings in Teens

[deleted account] ( 7 moms have responded )

My 14yr old daughter already has her lobes and septum pierced (and has had for a few months), however, recently as a christmas present she has asked me to allow her to get her helix (ear cartilage) pierced. I'm going to allow her to get this done, but I'm interested in other mother's opinions on this. How do you view coloured hair/ or piercings in teenagers?

Hi June! I don't see an issue with pierced ears on hair colorings...the pierced ears may always be there, but the hair colorings is something they will probably go out of. It is just a teenager trying to find themselves...surely you remember those days and some things you did that you would not have permitted yourself to do looking back.

Just be glad she is not asking to get colored and pierced what my daughter did this week!

I personally don't like it. Once they are 18 I can't control it but at only 14 I think it's too young.
I'm not against piercings, my husband has 13, I just don't agree with them on children, except for earlobes.

She didn't want her bellie button pierced? That's what most girls want after there ears, isn't it?

My girls both have coloured hair and piercings... and helix was one of the first they got. Looks nice and its not a big deal.
