Hello, I am 16 years old and unsure of what to do. I recently pierced my belly button, and have not yet told my parents. I'm currently in Taiwan with my grandparents, who are pretty oblivious to everything. My parents are divorced and have slightly different views on things. My dad is a little more liberal, but worries too much and has weak trust in me, but it's understandable as we don't live together. My mom, on the other hand, is on the stricter side, but I understand her too. I told her that I want to pierce my tongue and she found it disguesting. I have yet to do that and doubt I will, but that's beside the point. When we talked about belly button rings, she said that she would be more hurt than mad if I pierced it. Yet I pierced mine a few days ago. I made sure that everything was sterilized and I bought a saline solution and clean it 3 times a day.
At first, I didn't feel bad because I have felt very bad in the past because my mom didn't approve of my boyfriend and still treats me like a 13 or 14 year old. (my curfew is 1 on my LUCKY nights.) But then I realized that she's starting to loosen up on me, and now I feel bad. I don't know whether to tell her about it or just take it out. I really like the piercing and it's not as bad as people think! I won't see her for another month, so I can call or email her to tell her about it, but is that a good idea?
As for my dad, I don't think he'll mind much. I'm more concerned about my mom.
