Also, I think that tattoos should be off-limits until 18 with the understanding that they are still growing and the tattoo could shift/distort if they have a growth spurt.

Pierce.

Ooops, peace
I had a friend who got a tatoo around her belly button right as she was trying to get pregnant. I couldn't hep but wonder how that was going to look during/after the preg. As a general rule best not to spend $150 on a tatoo that is about to get stretched out on a part of your body that may never go back where it belongs. I had never thought about growth spurts but I suppose it would be the same.

This is the biggest reason I will never get a tat!! For some reason I've always just had this vision of growing old (or getting fatter) and having this stretched out tat with no definition on wrinkly skin hee hee hee. I know there are some body parts that don't stretch as much as others, but it is just one of those weird crazy fears I have.

I got my tattoo when i was 25, I think it's good to wait till you really know. I know two guys who got tennis shoe company logos tattooed on their backs when they were playing highschool sports!!

Most of our friends have tattoos and piercings ( I have my nose pierced) My ds is six and is always telling me how he's going to get about 10 piercings.

He used to say that about tattoos, till he saw me suffer after I got mine. He doesn't really want one anymore.

It's "outward apprearance" I know, but it's truth.

Just a note, since no one commented on this. Circledancer, I'm not really sure what the connection to this thread is for the young girl's pregnancy. I would imagine if she was in a very religious household that she dressed conservatively. The way a woman (or girl) dresses does not necessarily reflect behavior. :

I go to an evangelical church that may be conservative theologically, but is filled with artists who have multiple piercings and rainbow hair!!

Another note: You should point that girl in the direction of www.girlmom.com . It is a great site for teen moms that promotes AP parenting.

Peace to you,

I see I had never posted here that we let dd#1 get her tongue pierced. it went so great.

Not very traumatic to get it done, and it healed up so fast. 2 days of swelling and soft foods, then she was pretty much back to normal.

We were glad it healed quickly so she could get the all metal barbell out of her mouth, and put a plastic one in, to reduce risk of tooth damage.

I've read this tread some time ago but wasn't concern about the subject then... now I am I bleached and colored my DD's hair yesterday (she paid for the products) a bright Wild Fire Red ! (she's 12)

DH isn't trill about it but didn't express his concern before the fact (even if we've talk about it).

Now, DS (5, almost 6) want to color his hair too! Hum... I'll have to get some of this colored gel I 've seen at the store!

My 12 year old dd wanted to dye her hair red so we used the dye that washes out. It did wash out after a couple washes and was fun.

Now she wants her belly button pierced! She has had so much trouble with her pierced ears getting infected that I am concerned about the belly button. Anyone have experience with this?

yes
my daughter who turned 15 yesterday, wahoooooooo, go Hailey
had trouble with her ears, and at 13 had trouble with her belly button, she had it pierced twice and both times it grew out, her body will not hold a piercing at the naval, well accurately said, it didnt, 2x,I wont let her do it again, it scars,
her toungue piercing healed better than mine did tho, she has a great toungue piercing, Im trying to hold her back on any more at this time, and no tatoos, Im not going on any particular plan or dogma,(today anyways) just following my gut...

I pierced my DD's ears when she was 3 months, again at 13 years and again at 18 years. She has since done it herself one more time. That is enough I feel. She also dyes her hair blonde.
