You need to consider some things:

Do you have the infrastructure to host your own domain. i.e. If the 
place where one of your name servers was located was obliterated off the 
planet would you still be able to serve your DNS records? Does your 
infrastructure have the resiliency and necessary uptime to provide your 
for your requirements now and in the future? Are you prepared to assign 
resources maintaining that uptime?

If it is just you, and you're in the bar when your server(s) go down, 
are you going to be prepared to go and fix it or wait until the morning? 
If you wait until the morning are you going to be prepared to deal with 
the application fallout that your DNS being unavailable caused (e.g. not 
receiving emails for up to 4 days, finding that your users have all been 
unsubscribed from mailinglists etc...)

Having said that, just assign a external static IPs to your name servers 
and contact your registrar of your domain to update their DNS records.
