Cost. The worst piercing problems are when you can't afford the procedure. Don't do it if you don't have the cash.

The prices may be different where you live. Just remember that a "cheap" piercing is not always a good piercing.
Commitment. You are taking the risk to yourself if you cannot wash your piercing twice a day.
Criticism. If you get pierced, some people around you will judge you. You must ask yourself: Do you want to deal with the criticism from your parents, your grandparents, your teachers or family friends?
