Why Parents Say No to Body Piercings and Teens Can’t Get Enough of Them

Piercings and tattoos have been around for the longest time, yet parents frown whenever their kids say the P or T words. When asked, most parents, in fact most elders, give the reason that piercings, except for the accepted one or two ear piercings, make you look out of place, and not in a good way. That doesn’t stop the kids though who keep getting their body parts pierced and decorated with tattoos. Being a kid is tough and it gets tougher when you have to convince your parents to let you do stuff your way.

Why are parent so anti-piercings/tattoos anyway?
