How do you feel about piercings before 18?

This question is just for fun :) My mom let me get my bellybutton done when I was 16... but nothing else. What do you guys think about piercings and tattoos? Would you ever consent?

  • Piercings yes! Tattoos um probably not before 18.

  • I don't see why not. The only thing I have issues with are piercing children who can't consent... But if they want it, why not? I mean, if they take it out, it will close. I've had many close up on me... So what does it hurt? Go for it!

  • Only ears until you are an adult! Too many complications with anything else. But I'm almost sure when my DD turns 18 she will get something on her faced pierced!!

  • Piercings yes would depend on why & what & where but most likely no. If I'd gotten the tat I wanted @ 16 I'd have a pair of lips on my butt. Glad I waited! Now I love my 4 tats! I've had a lot of piercings, nose, belly, lip, cartlidge & like them. Also think its funny that its "okay" to pierce a baby's ears but ppl have a fit if there's a shiny stud sticking out of any other part of the body. What makes the ears so acceptable & not the nose or cartlidge? Just think the irony is well ironic!

    Side note my dd, 14 mo does not have her ears pierced. When she's old enough to decide that's what she wants & can take care of the piercing then she can get them done. Over 18 or not LOL

  • I think after like 15 peircings are okay, I agree with Brandi300, I wont consent for a tattoo before 18 because that isnt going to go away, I know my daughter would get one if she wanted one, but Id want to give her AS MUCH TIME as possible to decide what she wanted and if its REALLY what she wants on her body for the rest of her life! lol. :)

  • I agree with the ears too!! (From Nyx7) My 2 year old doesnt have her ears pierced either! I am going to wait until she asks me if she can get them pierced so it is her decision! :) I think its silly to pierce newborn baby ears.

  • It depends on the Piercing. Ears of course but if its a belly button or nose I would probably consent to a 16+, but tattoos no way would I consent. Teenagers change their minds alot and a tattoo is permanent so no.
