    I'm not trying to make anyone feel like a baby. Personally I think that if you're worried that people will see you as "trashy" because of a piercing then that demonstrates either a lack of maturity of some kind of insecurity. Seeking validation from others, especially strangers on the internet further backs up my point.

    If the OP wants a belly button piercing and is sure that they can properly tend to it afterwards to prevent rejection/infection etc then that is all they need to know about whether or not they should get one. Someone else labelling you as one thing or the other shouldn't matter as it says more about them than you.

    Well by saying it shows a lack of maturity you are trying to make someone feel like a baby. People often want to do things but won't because of societal perceptions, there's nothing wrong with that.

    Again, I'm not trying to make anyone feel anything. You are the person that keeps suggesting that they feel like a baby, I never did. Taking care of a healing piercing takes maturity and a level of understanding of wound care. I would hope that anyone that was getting a piercing could express said level of maturity/understanding. I happen to think that there is something fundamentally wrong with feeling like you cannot express yourself due to societal perceptions and would hope that instead of pandering to them that people should challenge them and live their lives however they choose regardless of those perceptions. What other people think should not stop you from doing something that you want to do (obvious exceptions excluded).

    I have one which I got for my seventeenth birthday- my parents were fine with it and went with me to get it done. To be honest, no-one knows but my family because I don't showcase it very often (obviously TSR members will know now). I don't think anyone would expect me to go for that type of piercing but honestly, I got it for myself & because I thought it looked good. If you really want it, then go for it- painwise, it's just a small pinch and then it's over. It's worth it!

    Ignore the stigma associated with this type of piercing because it's honestly all nonsense.

    Hope this helps!

    If you're that worried about what other people think maybe you're not mature enough to have a piercing?
    I guess, it is okay to get opinions before get a piercing. Sometimes there are good advices. At the end it is a decision of your own anyway.

    You are welcome. The main point is that you are satisfied with your decision you made. And it does not seem that you regret it.

    I've been thinking of getting one... Now I'm having doubts. I think they look nice, but they can look trashy at times. What are your thoughts?
    I like the providing you are not fat it's hot I also like nose rings but not septum.
