Did you ever get a piercing or tattoo behind your parents back?

Doesn't matter if you live at home or not. What did you do? Did they find out and were they mad?

  • Yes I did I skipped college one day when I was 16 to go and get a dragon tattoo on my hip.

    thing is it was beautiful but I didn't realize how bit it was until my mother seen it.

    I had just got it done, went home and it was bleeding through my top my mother went

    " Oh my god! What's happened why are you bleeding has someone hurt you!"

    Then she grabbed my top and pulled it up...

    she went nuts.

    now I'm 21 and every time she sees my tattoo she just goes " god its that thing!"

    I call him Jerry the dragon :D

  • Lol.. I've always told my mom I'd get a tatttoo, I knew she'd have issues with it, and how it conflicts with her Christian views. She grew to accept it. I got 5. All during the summer of last year. Paid with my own money, that I worked for and earned. My dad didn't care to much. He doesn't like tattoos, or anything like that, but he didn't bother me about it. I never told them When I was getting them, or anything like that, just that I would some day. I kept it general not technical so to speak.

    I'll get more someday..she knows that..she thinks its horrible, I find it amusing at how she reacts.

  • I had both nipples pierced, they didn't know, had it done around age 19? They didn't need to know, but I made some effort to avoid getting into it with them, just didn't want to discuss it. No longer have them in.

    It was the '90s, we all had to pierce something or something like that.

  • Umm. These past few years have been murder on my parents. I got 3 tattoos done behind their backs (never actually bothered to ask them their opinion) and I have 9 piercings in my ears, belly button pierced, and had a lip piercing up to like a couple weeks back. It closed up on prom night cause I didn't want a lip piercing while wearing a fancy dress. Anyways. They freaked. But after all the tattoos and piercings, they got kinda used to it. They were still upset but realized they couldn't do anything about it. That I'm still going to keep doing that because it's what I like. But they were relieved when they found out my lip piercing closed up.

  • I went and got my first tattoo done without telling my mum, I told my Dad..he's cool with all that.

    Got it done, came home, showed my mum and she freaked out at first, for a day or so and then she got curious about it and asked me questions and now she's okay with .. she'd prefer to me not to have my tattoos but she realizes it's out of her control, whenever she gets annoying about it I just say to her "my body, my rules" and she can't argue with that.

  • I got my navel pierced and told my mom after, she just gave me the silent treatment and kept giving me sh*t about it here and there every now and then. But I'm getting my nipple pierced and that should be so much easier to hide. However, I wouldn't get a tattoo behind their back, they would go INSANE (my mother at least; she's seriously against tattoos).. I am getting one, but I'm gonna wait a few years when she'll be okay with me making my own decisions about my body.

  • Haha yeah, I pierced my nose and ear cartilage by myself, my parents didn't care, they were just concerned about my safety and the risks of infections, but I sterilize and I'm careful, haven't had any problems whatsoever :) I was 15 when I pierced my nose, I remember covering it up with my jackets and talking to my parents facing one side of my face, and my dad reached over and touched my stud and just says "no need hiding it sweetie, it's cute" LOL

    And I recently pierced my belly button :)

  • im thinking of getting one actually...well she's never approved but now I actually have the guts to get it done without her approval I just will hope & pray it doesn't get infected

    • If it's done by a good shop and you take care of it like they say, chances aren't that huge of it getting infected :)

      What do you want done?

    • belly button ^.^

    • If you're careful with what you wear (as in: nothing too short that you're bellybutton shows when you put your arms up), big chance they won't notice. I had one for a couple of years and my parents never knew :)

  • My mom told me that as long as it's my own money and something I won't regret, I can get a tattoo. She just doesn't think I'll go through with it because I hate needles. She said if I can sit through it, she'll be more proud than upset. =)

  • My mom knew about my nose piercing because I was 15 when I got it and she had to go with me and sign the papers. My mom's pretty cool about that stuff. I'm not going to tell my mom when I get my tattoo, I'll just let her find out. I don't think she'll be mad. And if she is it'll be kind of hypocritical, since she has a tattoo herself.

  • Yes, I got a belly/navel piercing.

    I had it for about 4 months but then all of a sudden for no reason it rejected. I still struggle with the scar, it randomly will get a spot on it! My dad has no idea I ever had one. None of my family do.

  • well kinda, my mom hated tattoos so she was suprised when I was with my ex he had a few tats . He changed they way I looked at tattoos so the summer I was 16 I got 5 tattoos , my belly button periced and nose periced. She was upset but she loves most of my tattoos only one she hates is the one on my inner lip, cause I wanted one stupid tat to mark my teenage years. She only went with me to get my innerlip tattooed but left as soon as the guy got the gun ready she couldn't watch lol

    • wow, 5 tattoos in one summer? What did you get?

    • lol yea when I do something I go big. I got a hello kitty tattoo on my inner lip, the neda symbol on my hand by my thumb and pointer finger that little space imbetween, my fav poem on my ribs to my hip, and a pair of wings on my wrist

    • Sounds pretty cool :D

  • I wouldn't say I did it "behind their back", but I don't consult with them when I get piercings or tattoos. So I guess that would include two tattoos (in 5 sittings, so they changed a lot), and about 4-5 piercings. I think.

    They will randomly ask me if I've gotten any new ones, or if they mishear what me or my sisters say or something, but it's whatever. They don't approve, but they respect my choice to do what I want with my body. They know I wouldn't get anything that would affect my employability, and that's the main thing that concerns them.

  • I let my friend pierce my tongue when I was 15. My parents never found out, and I had to take it out because I'm allergic to metal of any kind.

  • Nope because if I ask they usually pay for it, I will probably get my first tattoo behind their back because they won't understand the symbolism and make annoying comments.
