Should I Get a Lip Piercing/Will I Look Weird - September 26th 2013, 11:36 PM

I've been considering getting a lip piercing for a year-ish now, and now I'm just curious about whether it will look too weird on me (for example, someone with a babyish/innocent look wouldn't look too amazing with a lip piercing I'd imagine (but I guess I wouldn't really know huh? ) )

Some facts about me:
I'm a girl
I am 13 (fourteen in April)
My parents aren't totally into the idea though I don't think that'll be a problem, if anything

NOTE: I'm not asking about any of the downfalls about piercings like the whole job thing (obviously just take them out- if I get them at my age I won't have a real job for a while anyway). I'm also not asking for any rude comments about how piercings are cliche and that I shouldn't do it just to look "cool" (I can do whatever I want (*cough*withmyparentspermission*cough.

Here's a pic of me: s7.postimg.org/rr1cgsoaz/image.jpg

I think a lip piecing will look fine on you but you need to make sure you defiantly want to go ahead with it and not have any doubts. You could always ask your friends/family members if they think it would suit you too.

Looking innocent doesn't rule out the ability to make a piercing work.

I think a year is long enough to consider something like this, so if I were you I would go ahead and get it.

One thing though - will your school allow it?

if your parents are ok with it, sure. if you want to see how it looks you can make a fake one out of silver jewelry wire just to test it out. any craft store should have wire

Consider that you really need it. Remember that it makes you a scar for a long life. Maybe try something more reversible first

Hi there!

You said your parents aren't totally into it...depending on where you live that could be a problem as some places won't do lip piercings on under 16s without parental permission. I'd just double check the piercing places around you to see if this is the case. If it is then there's no harm in waiting.

I'm really terrible at trying to figure out if something will suit someone or not BUT when I was deciding what piercing to get I had a friend photoshop my face with some piercings on it just to get a general idea of what they would look like. If you don't have photoshop then you can a free version called GIMP to do this on and there's loads of tutorials to help you do this.

Here's a video of a tutorial of someone doing this with a lip piercing in GIMP - http://photoshop-tutorials.wonderhow...-photo-423810/

I know a lot of people are probably like "make sure this is definitely what you want" but it's not like it's a tattoo, if you don't like the lip piercing you can just take it out

I hope this helped!
