Harm ye none.
So what about tattoos and piercings? are those something that is ...um "against your religion" or looked down on in any way. It does harm, doesnt it? I'm just curious as to how this rule works.

I don't necessarily follow the Rede (I'm not Wiccan) but I do believe in nonharming and the principle is the same. Piercings or tattoos aren't considered to be harming by most (any? LOL) Pagans. They are considered decorative, a personal choice, and not harmful. Piercing someone else without their consent or full knowledge is harming, because it violates their personal autonomy. You can modify your own body in complete freedom as long as you are being safe about it and doing it doesn't cause harm to others.
