~How to ask thee parentals for a tongue piercing~ Can you help me out?? :)?
Ok let me tell you a little about me. I love life and everything in it. You will always see me smiling [: I’m one of those girls who believes in self expression and tries to stand out from the crowd 😉 Last year my hair was red and yellow “ketchup and mustard” that’ss what I was called. . but I just laughed along 🙂 This years color . . brown and purple! yup. I don’t do it for anybody. I do it because it’s fun and it lets me “express” myself. I love nail polish, hair colors, eyeshadow, and blue mascara 🙂 anything that can be as colorful as the rainbow in thee sky! I have mostly A’s and B’s in school, and thee most important thing to me in thee world are friends and fam[ily]. I guess I could say I have it good compared to some people, I just need to realize that. Sometimes I get in MAJOR trouble but I always try to learn and make up from my mistakes even though I am young and know little of life itself. | okey dokey. . . . now let’s get on. The reason why I am on here is to see if there is an easy way to ask my mother a simple question. I only have two piercings in my ears and that’s about it. Now I want to take it to thee next level . . . I want to get my tongue pierced. I’ve googled and reasearched everything there is to know about this special piercing. Night and day, 24/7, just to make sure I got the facts down. Thee worst possible situations, where to get it done, how much it cost, the dangers, what to expect, and how to take care of it. I don’t want to keep going on forever so here’s my question. . .
What is the best way to come up to my mother and ask her if I can get this tongue piercing done? What can I tell her about it? How to explain to her how important this is to me? Thank you! :] and please if you know any additional information about tongue piercings, can you share the information with me?
Thank you bunches and munches 🙂
I personally have my tongue pierced, and I will tell you straight up that I LOVE it. BUT
You are far too young to have a tongue ring. Tongue piercings are associated with oral sex. Sad, but true. Do you REALLY want every guy after you because they think you’ll give them head, and do you really want all the girls to think that you do that? Wait until you are older and can emotionally deal with that prejudice. You surely are used to it a little with colored hair and such…
but hair coloring has NOTHING to do with sex, and sex is a very sensitive subject to mess around with. When I got mine pierced, my older brother called me and said, “I heard what you did. I just wanted to let you know that the only girls I have ever known with a tongue piercing have been huge slvts.”
I wanted mine pierced for YEARS but I waited, and then I loved it even more. Don’t plan on getting it if you think that people are going to notice and think immediately how awesome and free-spirited you are, because honestly, almost NO ONE will notice unless you stick your tongue out a lot. And if you are doing that, the stereo types of a tongue piercing will probably suit you.
If you are still SET on this:
1. Write your parents a well-written persuasive essay explaining pricing, how responsible you are, etc.
2. Don’t give it to them at first.
3. When you are all sitting down anyway, like for dinner, casually mention, “I think tongue piercings are really cute. I think I would really like one.” to get the subject started.
4. Gauge their reactions. React CALMLY and RATIONALLY.
5. Tell them, “Well I have actually been researching it a bit since I started considering it.” Tell them happy facts. Ask them what they would think about it. Blah blah blah.
6. If they say yes, the essay was a useful tool in helping you organize your thoughts in order to convince them.
7. If they say no, tell them, “I still want one, but I will respect your wishes. I actually wrote this when I was taking notes on the subject, though. I’ll leave it here so you can take a look at it.”
8. A few days later, ask what they thought of your essay.
Only do this if they don’t completely flip out, though. I don’t know your parents, but my father is a professor, and he was a SUCKER for the essays I wrote whenever I wanted anything.
