Do it! You could pull it off. Looks just like mine, right down to the jewelry, haha, and on the left side too. 16 is a good age to get it. I've had mine since about that age, and it's nice, because you get those years until and around 'adulthood' to enjoy it and decide if you really want to keep it. If you don't want to keep it, then you don't feel like you wasted money getting it done, only to have to take it right back out. Of course it could end up the same at any age, but a lot of people do 'grow out' of it when they enter the adult world. I'm just not one of those people. =] The scarring you'll be left with if you DO remove it is minimal. Most people would never notice it, unless they were ridiculously observant, had their eyeballs 2 inches from your face, and/or knew what to look for [specifically, piercing scars].
