I got mine done and its not expensive it's cheaper than a new pair of jeans at the mall.
If she's a good kid and is doing well what's the matter?

It's a piece of metal which some prudes decided it needed some sexual meaning attached to it.
Things are what YOU make them, no one else matters.

Personally, I think she is far too young to be getting something like this done.

The parent is asleep at the switch. Piercings carry an enhanced risk of abdominal infection, nerve damage, scarring, and a host of other problems.

It's not really that big of a deal. If she wants it, do it. And pay for it, it is too much responsibility for a 14 year old to pay for that kind of thing. 'cause happiness is KING of LIFE!!!!!!!

So in summary, if she wants it, her parents should do it.

I'm guessing your parents didn't let you get your belly pierced either.

Pierced belly means exposed belly. I had one, among other piercings, in my 20s. She will not be exposing her belly at 14.

This is what happens when parents are more of a "friend" to the child, instead of an actual parent. And yes, I think she is too young to get that.

As someone who has a multitude of piercings, I would not permit my child to get any done until they were out of my house.

Trashy - the kid is going to look like a junior member of a harem. 14 is a child. Some say it has no sexual symbolism...of course it does - it directs the eye to the abdomen and then lower. One poster commented "the guys are going to love it" _ Just think two years prior this kid was 12. NOPE...a child does not need a tattoo or a hole in her belly button.

Sorry, but that is way too young. My children will have to wait until they're 18 to get any piercings (besides their ear lobes).

My opinion of a 14 year old obtaining a belly button piercing?

No way.
