Get naval pierced?
Posted on: 06/03/2008
I am 13 and i want my naval pierced but my dad doesn't think I'm ready. My friend is going to do it for me if he doesnt let me. Should I let her?
NO!!!! Naval piercing should really be done in a studio with an autoclaves and single use needles - to reduce the chance of infection. Doing it at home will be more painful and there is more chance of infection, scarring, and trouble, all the way around. My advice is listen to your dad and just wait.
