Should I get a facial piercing? If so what kind would look best?

I am 17 but have always had the problem of being mistaken for younger than my age. Yes, I know I look 13 and not 17 you don't need to point it out. I have always loved how facial piercings look and wanted to get one for a long time. Only one of my parents hates the idea, but since I'll be 18 in under 6 months she knows she can't stop me. I know how to care for piercings as I have had my ears done before and know friends with body piercings, the only one I will abstain from is a tounge because of the risk for neurological infection. I'm slightly concerned about looking too much like a lesbian since that seems to be what everyone assumes I am when they realise I'm not prepubescent, but honestly anything is worth not being treated lesser than my peers due to my young appearence.

  • Avoid an eyebrow piercing as well. You can give yourself a palsy if they don't get it in exactly the right place.

  • A piercing will only make you look like a 13 year old trying to act 22.

    Dress like a man and be thankful that you age slowly.

  • I'd say a lip piercing on either side of your lower lip. I myself have one and I love it~ sides, you have very nice lips and a thin hoop would accentuate them :)

  • The only piercings I like on guys usually are nose piercings. :) I wouldn't personally recommend getting a lip piercing (unless you consider yourself "emo" or "alternative" and are sure you can pull it off)

  • You look way too young. But if you want one, I suggest getting an eyebrow piercing.

      17 is not too young for a piercing in my opinion

  • If you're getting it to look older then no. A facial piercing won't make you look any older.

  • I don't think it will make you look any older, but if you like it go ahead and get one.
