Dear Dish-It: I'm Desperate For A Lip Piercing
I'm MEGA desperate for a lip piercing! I've tried begging and begging my mom and dad for it but they say that I should wait till I'm 18. Should I just be patient or shall I keep trying to persuade them?

Dear Peace & Tammy09,
I'm afraid to say I'm going to be boring and take your parent's side here.
While piercing; isn't necessarily permanent, it is still a pretty big decision for a kid to make. Plus, you would definitely need your mom and dad's permission before any respectable piercer shoved a needle through your lip.
Besides, lots of shops sell clip-on hoops that you can try out. I know it's not as cool as the real thing, but it will at least give you a taster. It might also get your parents more used to the idea at the same time.
