I got my belly button done just before i turned 16 as a present from my mum. I think bout 15/16s when i would let mine have theirs depending on what kind of piercing it is. Belly button or ears im happy with but things like eyebrows or lips will defo have to wait until they are older!!!
I agree they should wait until they are older for facial piercings
Leah wants her belly button doing for her 14th birthday.She is not like most 14 year olds.She is far more mature so I know she will be responsible and take care of it so we are considering allowing her to have it done

16 in my house. I let them have their ears done when they went to the comp I think! Maddie went through a bit of a phase at about 14 of wanting her belly button done. Told her she had to wait till she was 16 but now she's nearly 18 in May and doesn't want it done any more.
She knows a couple of people (including her best friend's mum) who've had horrendous infections in theirs and I think it's put her off!
