The only problem is, is that I'm 16. I live in Illinois, so that should help. I've heard countless occasions where kids under 18 who wanted to get pierced would have to have a parent along with them, although my parents are far too scared to walk into actual piercing studios. I would have one of my aunts or uncles come with me, but most of them are out of town. Do you think I'll be able to go alone?
