Re: I got my belly button pierced, but dad has yet to find out... - July 19th 2010, 04:47 PM

Hey Alexa!

I agree - I definitely think you should tell him sooner rather than later (AND that it should come from you). I mean, obviously you don't have to, but the longer you wait, the more likely the conversation is going to be something like "well, why didn't you tell me sooner?" and you don't want to fuel that fire!

If you're the good kid, clearly you've been pretty trustworthy in the past. Because of this, I almost think you should just go and tell him straight up - no beating around the bush, no saving the conversation for later - just go and get it done with. Make it clear to your dad that you know how to take care of your piercing and make sure it won't get infected, and let him know that you acknowledge that you probably should've asked his permission before-hand and that you'll be sure to do that next time (if you will, of course...don't lie!).

I hope things turn out for you.
