All in all, Farrah’s main goal is to be a good mom and she feels she is doing that by being supportive of Sophia’s choices. “I am doing my best as a parent to make sure that she is healthy and happy, and I covered those bases. So congratulations to Sophia,” she stated. “I’m wishing her the best in her teen years, and if she wants to get more piercings, more power to her.”

Sophia excitedly shared the news about her piercing as soon as she got it. She uploaded an edited video of her getting the septum piercing done. The teen seemed calm, cool and collected as she sported her purple-streaked hair and sat on the table for her procedure. “I got my septum piercing for for my birthday!! I am so happy with how it turned out! I am the first person in my family to get a septum piercing at 13!! Birthday wish came true!!” she exclaimed in the post’s caption.
