Sorry, but I don’t think thats “sweet” or something to encourage him to do - like I said, the only option would be an assisted install by a non-pro, and I’ve seen not-so-good-things in that field. Especially considering nobody with a sane mind would do even an assisted install on someone that young.
And, though I may risk stepping on some toes now, when I look at his current, not-so-patient behaviour in this forum, it might be a good idea to spend a bit more time thinking about all that. Getting a bit more calm (and that’s coming from me, titan-magnet-hype-queen, yes^^), getting more used to healing procedures and all that. Sorry.
Yep, that was what I was trying to say, maybe I was too polite to be clear
Getting a mod and coping with the healing process requires some… dunno how to say… serenity? Things can always go wrong, and if the “excitement” is at the same level then, things tend to get worse.
Honestly hector, even if you have done all your research, know what you’re getting into, and have the patience and maturity , the main problem is still finding someone to install it for you. I say try to find someone who is willing AND competent in medical practice first and once you know you have someone that can do it, then order the implant.
Trust me. I also tried to get my implant young and just wasn’t able to. I had no option but to wait till I was 18 before anyone would do it for me and I suspect you will come to the same conclusion
I think that really depends on a lot of different things… I started to live (mostly) on my own when I was 14 or 15, got my first piercings with 16 and lived a pretty “free” life, and my parents were okay with that. Simply because I showed before that I was able to keep agreements and be overall pretty reliable. So I think it’s okay for parents to allow a lot of stuff, considering their children behave accordingly… which might not be the case here, I think, but that’s just my humble opinion
16 ain’t 13. Not in the eyes of social services anyway. And particularly not if the kid doesn’t have a history of uncontrollable behavior that the parents have reasonably little influence over. I don’t know the OP, but it seems more like a fancy (however legit) than a rebellious act.
In short, social services take a dim view of overly permissive parents who let their children do things that can result in bodily harm when they’re at an age when they can and should say no.
Having said that, I know nothing of the OP and his parents. So this is just a generic comment. Still… this venture feels wrong to me somehow.
Yeah, I know… I’m just surrounded by far too many helicopter parents currently, who try to control and “protect” their kids from real life
So I’m just a bit happy about parents who allow “stupid stuff”^^
Well you know what? You may be right. In any case, I ain’t judging, especially not from the other side of the internet. I’ve done my share of idiotic things as a kid, chief among which was picking up smoking at age 11. So far from me to judge.
All I said is that the parents might attract the wrong kind of attention with that underage implant crowdfunding thing.
