I’ve wanted a lip piercing for quite a while now – probably since before Christmas, so about 11 months, maybe closer to a year and I still really want one.
But my mum doesn’t like them. If I was that kind of person I’d say hey, I’m 19, I don’t need her permission I could just get it and that kind of person is right, but it’s not her permission I want.
It’s her approval.
When I asked her if she’d kill me if I got a lip piercing she said ‘please don’t get one, I won’t like prison food’ and part of me is still thinking, but she can’t do anything about it – I could get the piercing now, find some clear studs for when I’m home out of respect but my mum still wouldn’t like it.
I waited till February to get my first tattoo because my mum was dead set against them but I told her that I only wanted little ones, I wasn’t going to be someone who had sleeves of tattoos because that’s not what I want – I don’t think I’d suit it and I don’t want it and now, she says she really likes my first tattoo! She said she might even get it too, which is a huge, huge step from where she stood on tattoos a year ago.
So I’m hoping to work the same magic with a lip piercing. And I want your help.
In the comments, leave messages on your opinions on piercings (good or bad, I love a bit of variety) or your stories of piercings – I’m not looking for a giant ring or to be covered in them, I just want a little lip ring and I want your help to convince my mum they’re not all that bad.
Sorry mum! I should probably say ‘sorry nan’ while I’m at it… this probably isn’t the kind of content you want to be reading… oops!
Thank you for reading!
That’s where you’ll find me:
