Tattooing and Body Piercing- Is it weird?

Most of the youngsters are crazy behind different types of styling. For them looking stylish, and funky is as imperative as food and water and they just cannot do without it. Piercing, tattooing and wearing avant-garde attires are the way in which they express themselves. This is simply because teenage is the time when they realize about themselves and try to create a separate identity. And the best way in which they can differentiate themselves from others is through fashion. This is in fact a short lived phase and must be celebrated by the parents as this is the time when their kid is struggling to create own identity.

Parents must not feel depressed or concerned if kids want to go for shaved heads, navel or eyebrow piercings or tattooing. Just listen to your kids and guide them where ever necessary. Do not indulge in quarrels and understand their feelings. Just guide them what is right and what not. Tell them about the medical dangers associated with piercings or tattooing. For instance if a child wishes to have tattooing, tell him that it will last for whole life and the procedure of tattooing is very painful. Parents must assist the child by saying that the tattoo won’t look decent when he passes a certain age.
