I'd raise my kids to have some respect for their bodies. And thus, they wouldn't WANT a tattoo.

Then why are "kids" allowed to grow facial hair and dye their hair?

My kids wouldn't dye their hair...but there's nothing wrong with having facial hair...unless you're a woman, that is.

It is NATURAL for a man to have facial hair.

TKramar, would you let your daughter pierce her ears?

I figure my 20-something son, who puts his life on the line every day defending the freedoms of others, is entitled to freedom of expression himself. His very tasteful celtic cross tattoo doesn't bother me one bit.

While I am not a fan of tattoos, my 17-year-old grandson recently got one on his upper back (easily hidden)...his father (my son) died several years ago and my grandson wanted a tattoo for his Dad. He got a very tasteful one done of a man riding into the clouds on a motorcycle and the words "In Memory~Dad". I could not criticize this...but I will never love tattoos, I suppose.

why not? How are pierced ears or tattoos not respecting your body?

I am just curious as to your reasoning.

Your body didn't come with them. Your body is already perfect, there's no need to do anything to it to modify it. No makeup, no tattoos, no piercings.
