It is quite safe to pierce nipples, but be certain that whoever performs the piercing has sterile body piercing tools and sterile body nipple jewelry. You should also consider what type of nipple jewelry you wear. There is a risk of getting caught on something or someone if you were jewelry that dangles, and unless you're a masochist, you probably don't want the experience of having your nipple torn off. It hurts even more than piercing the nipple.
