My son had a physical yesterday.  The pediatrician pretty much looked over every inch of his body.  I'm sure if a doc saw what appeared to be a permanent tattoo on a child in a state where it's against the law, the doc would speak with the parent(s) and possibly report it.

 

If the child seems to be doing well overall (aside from that tattoo incident), I wouldn't report it.

In the link I posted several pages back, it looked like most states said that minors could have piercings/tattoos as long as they had parental consent. So isn't that pretty much exactly what you've written above, that parents are permitted to either allow or not allow body modifications? What am I missing?

I was responding specifically to the poster who made the statement, "their body, their choice" but then immediately said that they wouldn't let their children do that.
