Willow Smith, 11, Shows Off New Tongue Piercing — Too Young?

Willow Smith Tongue Piercing

Willow has posted a new and startling pic of her new tongue stud! HollyMoms, would YOU let your 11-year-old get a tongue piercing? We asked a dentist for his expert opinion!

Willow Smith is known for her outrageous fashion sense, and now she’s taken it a step further with this new pic of herself and her fellow pierced friend on Instagram.

In California, Willow would need her parents’ permission to get a piercing. So either Will and Jada Smith were all on board or she just has a really good-looking fake!

If the stud was real, what risks come with a tongue piercing? We asked New York City dentist Dr. Poiman to list the risks involved:

1. It could create chemical trauma in the front of the teeth
2. Tongue infections
3. Because of the ring, it could develop allergies in the mouth
4. Sometimes the ring can cause sensitivity, and make the teeth break

Dr. Poiman also told HollywoodLife.com exclusively that it is more dangerous for younger children to get their tongues pierced because “younger children or teenagers are more prone to trauma since they are not as worried about hygiene.”

He added he would definitely not allow his 11-year-old to get their tongue pierced.

EDIT: No worries for Will and Jada — Willow later admitted the stud was just a prank: “It’s fake… Sorry,” she added to the Instagram photo.

HollyMoms, vote below! Even though it’s not real, would YOU let your 11-year-old get a tongue piercing?

Please stop judging others when you don’t know the whole story. She cut her hair because she has SICK friend. Cancer is hell and it’s about solidarity. Also the piercing is fake and if it wasnt so what? In other cultures children get pierced all the time and it is not looked at in the way we look at it in america because here all anyone is looking for is the next person to judge rather than worrying about themselves.

Are you Kidding

Like everyone else has already mentioned every other blog has already acknowledged it’s fake! But really, with the popularity of piercings since the mid 1990s, I can’t think of a single kid I knew growing up who didn’t joke around like that. I was born in the early 80s,all my babysitters had eyebrow piercings so my friends and I used to make fake ones… and I didn’t grow up to be some sort of wild, drug-addicted party girl covered in tattoos and piercings.I don’t have a single piercing not on an earlobe… Let the damn kid be a kid! She’s not doing anything unusual.

What a damn shame, smh. Seems like a train wreck in the making. Jada, Will please read Proverbs. She is a child not an adult. The hair cut, the tongue ring whether fake or not is not cute and is setting a bad example for other girls her age.

She doesn’t act like an 11 year old!
If they don’t want prev people commenting on them like that then they need to act their age, and stop giving prev men a reason to comment things like this.

Please stfu. U sound dumb. Thats like saying if someone got raped ” oh they needa stop wearing those types of clothing, if they didnt wear that they wouldnt have gotten raped” willow didnt tell u to comment on her piercing. She is acting her age. That piercing is fake and even if it want youre not raising her. Your not her parents. So dont worry about it.

you guyss are ridiculous ! Frankly thatss their child and if they let her get a tounge ring then so be it .. People rasie their children differently and even though my mother didnt let me get my tounge pierced i would let my child do it if she or he wanted to because she has her own personality and she is herself and isnt afraid to be herself an thats what i love about her .. so you guyss can say whtever you want to say and you are sad because she is 11 and yall are talkin about freakin blow jobss ???? How crazy is that cause if i was Will or Jada i would have a fit and snap and Willow is going through alot right now with being famous and her parents divorce.. you guys are probably the reason she wishes she wasnt famous now !!!!

it’s fake. The ball is way to big to be real ( I got mine pierced when I was 23) That being said it would be totally inappropriate to allow her to get a tounge ring. Everyone knows what message a tounge ring on a young man or woman signals.

Its fake . The Manet kinds you can get at Claire’s. I don’t see the big deal. A lot of Tweens /teens walk around with hennas.. Blah blah fake piercings . It’s fun and games. It doesn’t mean they are bad kids . So leave her alone and don’t act like you never pretended over something when you were a kid
