    Default Nipple piercings at 17?

    Hello everyone Basically, I want to get my nipples pierced, have done for a long time, and want to know if it can be done at 17 in terms of anatomy. I know the legal age is 18, but since I don't think a few months is worth much, and I have the opportunity to get them done in about a week, I just want to know if there can be any adverse affects since I'm not 18. I'm sure I have finished growing, boobs included (unfortunately.) I'm hoping for advice from piercers, although any advice would be helpful, and I would be grateful if nobody would tell me off for not waiting til I'm 18, because that's not why I'm here xxx

    I have:
    Stretched lobes at 20(ish)mm
    6x 1.6mm lobe piercings
    9x Helix piercings
    2x Conch piercings
    6x Labret piercings
    1x Medusa piercing
    5mm tongue piercing
    2x nostril piercings
    10mm septum piercing
    Bridge piercing
    2x anti-eyebrow piercings
    2x eyebrow piercings
    2x cheek piercings
    Nape piercing
    Navel piercing
    Heart shaped brand on left foot
    4 tattoos (and quite a few stick and pokes)

    I want:
    More tattoos!

    Retired:
    Tongue web
    Third eye microdermal
    2x nipple piercings
    2x hip surface piercings

    The legal/local authority set age in the UK is usually 16 but a fair few piercers will have 18+ policies in place and as such should be asking for ID however a lot will do them from 16.

    (Strictly speaking I don't think there is a nationally legal age limit for nipple piercings however as I said most local authorities will have their own age limitations in place. I think the only recognised and enforced age limit for mods is genitals at 16+ (and yes 16, not 18) and tattoos at 18+).

    As for anatomically due to age/growing I don't see an issue considering people's nipples seeing they can change hormone intake like the pill, pregnancy and so on. As for boob growth you may find changes in the size of the breast but not necessarily a change in the nipple. That may happen post piercing though so that's something to consider.

    I got my right nipple pierced at 16 and have had no adverse affects at all, and I hadn't finished growing at 16, but haven't had any problems with my nipple peircing at all. It's on my slightly-smaller boob to make me feel better about having one bigger than the other haha. So yep. No problems for me, and I had mine done younger than you :3

    I got my first nipple piercing when I was 17 too, just make sure you go to a good place with a good piercer and you'll be fine
    Hazel, law wise are female nips not classed as genital so 16+ everywhere? Sure I read that somewhere!!

    Genitals are basically what's in your pants so nipples on a male or female don't count as genitalia and as far as I know nationally the only stand alone law set is for 16+ genitals, there's no other with relation to piercing. However local authorities will have their own laws/guidelines with some/most saying 16+ for female nipples and I reckon you'd struggle to find a piercer who would pierce 15 or under especially girls seeing how breasts/nipples are sexualised on women despite having an actual anatomical function

    Any place I've been to will only do female nipples if they're over 18, best bet is just asking the piercer what their policy on female nipple piercings is.

    I know HTT in Manchester will do them 16+ as long as you have ID, their sister shop Thou Art may have the same policy but I cannot speak for their piercers. I personally recommend Marcus at HTT btw but assume it may be a little out the way? Avoid Blue Banana for anything they're not proper piercers.
