Would you approve of your underage daughter getting a tattoo or a body piercing?

Not talking about getting her ears pierced but more along the eyebrows, nose, mouth, bellybutton. If you had to choose one or the other, would it be a tattoo or a piercing? I guess I am very old fashioned but I would never get either although I do think that a small diamond stud on the nose or just above the lip looks very pretty on certain people. Whats your opinion?

  • If she were 16, sure.
    Anything under, probably not.

  • I would let my daughter at 16, no earlier and that is only for a piercing because they aren't perment! Tattoo will wait until she is 18 and with her own money!

  • I could agree to a piecing, but not a tattoo until they are of age. Piercings can be removed. I have had two piercings and no one would even know now.

  • Either one after 16 and only with our tattoo artist so I know everything is clean. (DH's brother is the artist).

  • Yes, my husband and I already talked about it for all 3 of our kids at the age of 16 we will buy them their first tattoo but it can not be someone name, or something ugly or stupid, can not be something to do with death or satan. We both got our first ones when we were 15 and did not go to a proffecional and would rather our kids do. They have to be able to be covered, and if they want more after that we will sign but they have to pay. same for a piercing

  • Ya, it's her body. I would have to approve of the tattoo, or piercing but for the most part I allow my kids to express who they are without interfering.
