Radcliffe’s daughter attended Red River Ex. On June 17 and decided to get her navel pierced at a mobile booth. The staff agreed to perform piercing despite the girl being underage and without parental consent. As Radcliffe points out, the staff told her daughter to simply “find someone who’s over 18 and have them sign the consent form”. The girl asked her 18 year old friend who worked at the fair at the time to sign the form. The staff at the mobile booth accepted this signature and performed the piercing.
Radcliffe emphasizes that she’s not so much upset with her daughter getting a belly piercing, but with the fact that the piercers performed the procedure without parental consent.
Plus, the aftercare instructions the girl received were very basic.
“God knows how many kids went to the Ex and got tattoos or piercings and are possibly are infected right now and they’re scared about talking to their parents, you know, or [asking] someone does this look right?, says Radcliffe.
Manitoba Health is now investigating the case.
