My boyfriend said that I have too many piercings for my age (17). He said he thinks I should take them out.
Id like some more opinions. Thanks!

I didn't know you could pierce that part of the upper gums (or whatever that is), I think you know your limits, and the holes don't really ever close so taking them out will be a process of making sure they don't get infected while you transition from having piercings to fewer. But he might be saying that because he's concerned he might get snagged on one or accidentally pull on one, and from firsthand experience it's painful for both people.0THIS IS NOT RELEVANT ANYMORE

I think it's a matter of opinion and preference. Some people prefer no piercings, and some could like a face full. By what he's stated he seems to be someone who prefers less. Maybe because he thinks it detracts from your natural beauty by drawing all the attention from your face as a whole to just the piercings on your lips (who knows). But obviously you like them, seeing as you got them done and kept them in, it is your face and if you like how it looks then the decision is up to you.
But I do think if you're indifferent about them, and they're just for fun, then it could be something to consider if you do care about your boyfriend and his preferences. I don't think it's his place to tell you that you should take them out, but rather just make a suggestion towards it if he really is quite against it. Just like if the situation were reversed, you could give him your opinion and preference on something that is changeable, but ultimately it would be up to him whether to change it up or not.
