Is this a good essay to convince my parents to let me get my navel pierced? Anything I should add change.

Here is the essay.
Navel piercing
The reasons why I want a navel piercing are : they look cute, it will cover the scar in my belly button, and I have perfect belly button skin for the piercing.

Some possible risks and percautions are :
· Infection at the site of the piercing
· Piercing Systemic infection arising from the piercing (That's an infection that's spread through your system in your blood or through other glands.)
· Scars and/or keloids at the piercing site
· Jewelry migrating – pushing its way out of the skin – can leave nasty scars as well as reopen the original wound
· NEVER attempt to pierce any part of your body yourself, or have someone else do it for you. A reputable professional piercing studio will have the equipment to properly sterilize any equipment and materials that come in contact with your body. That's vital to avoid blood borne diseases, and will help reduce the chances of other infections as well.

Body piercing care
· Clean your belly button 2 times daily (no more, no less) with antibacterial soap. before cleaning, use a cu-tip soaked in warm water to gently remove any crust that may have formed around the ring.
· In addition to regular cleanings, salt-water soaks work well to promote healing. You can buy non-iodized sea salt and put about 1/2 tsp in 1/4 cup of cooled boiled water. put this in a shot glass or small medicinal cup and bend over. place it over your navel, lie down and kill 15 minutes. This helps get rid of any pending infections.
· Other than for cleanings and salt water soaks, leave your piercing alone. do not move your navel jewelry around. If you want to see it, look in a mirror.
· Avoid swimming pools and spas. If you must, be sure to clean your navel immediately afterwards with antibacterial soap.
· Lavender oil and tea tree oil may help speed healing. to be sure that you are using the essential oils appropriately, consult your piercing professional before using them.
· Wear a waterproof bandage over a new (up to six months) piercing when swimming to avoid bacterial contamination.
· Avoid using laundry detergents that contain stain fighting enzymes on clothing that will come into direct contact with the piercing. the enzymes can impede healing.
· Don't touch your new belly button piercing with dirty hands.
· Don't let other people touch it
· Replace your belly button piercing jewelry only after your piercing has completely healed (usually 6 months to a year).

The Procedure:
1. the piercer will clean the belly button area with some solution and mark it. Then, he/she will mark the entry points for the needle and ask you if that's what you want.
2. He/she will put on gloves and prepare the utensils. they might clamp you
3. Holding the clamp in place, they'll ask you to take deep breaths and to relax. Try to think about something peaceful and hold somebody's hand so you can take your mind off things. Then he/she will insert the hollow needle. Then put in the jewlery.

Signs of Infection:
If you experience pain that does not go away within a day or two, increased pain, unusual pain or swelling in the piercing site, if the area feels hot to the touch, or you see red lines starting from piercing, or see oozing, bleeding, pus, see your health care provider. do not remove your jewelry. If the jewelry is removed, the openings of the piercing may close and trap the infection, which can create an abscess (a pus-filled, painful area).

A completely healed belly button piercing can take 6months up to one and a half years. Belly button piercings can be difficult to heal because of exposure to poorly chlorinated waters; also clothing and sweat can irritate the piercing. Factors that can slow the healing process include bad quality jewelry, stress, illness, lack of proper care and a poor diet. If not cared for properly a belly button piercing can take 1-2 years to heal and is an easy target for recurring infection.

OMg all the hard work you but into this essay! I dont think it will conviced your parents. I got my belly pierced at age 15 behind my mom back. I never ask because I knew her answer. I only lasted 4 years with it after you get over it! now Im 21 and If i go back I do it the same. oh and by the way I never got caught I told my mom was I turn 17.

Use spell check and you probably shouldn't include the risks because it doesn't really help your half of the argument.
