but a lot of children DO have sex very early on these days and getting a nose ring is one thing that can be done to attract other people to them.
You can't possibly think that because you willingly go with your child and allow them to get a piercing or tattoo while they are still a child that it will keep them from wanting to have sex early. Give me a break. I wanted nothing to do with tattoos and didn't even have my ears pierced when I started having sex at the age of 14.
I said no. It's her nose, and at that age she's ready to start making decisions like that. I would not let a 13 year-old get a tattoo, but that's permanent. A nose piercing closes up.

I voted incorrectly due to misunderstanding the wording. I meant yes- I would allow it. And I did! My Dd got her nose pierced at 13 and her naval pierced at 14. She is now considering doing a high cartilage piercing on her ear. She likes the look. We research and we have an excellent piercer that helps us understand things very clearly.
My job isn't to tell her what she can do with her own body. My job, IMO, is to help her understand what she's thinking of doing, to find info on it, get educated on the risks, and how to best avoid them. With all the info she can decide, with my gentle presence, if it's the best decision for her or not.

No. A reputable piercer will not pierce a minor with or without consent. I will not go to a shop that pierces minors. She rips that thing out somehow, snagged on a towel whatever (done it), and suddenly its your fault. Why not wait until she's old enough to sign for herself.. she can go to an excellent shop, research the piercing and how to care for it properly, and everybody rests easy.
I wanted my nose pierced when I was 15.. waited until I hit 18, signed for myself.. what a right of passage. I still have it.
