Should kids under 18 be able to get piercings?I don't think so, because they are putting holes in their body before they have thought about it. What do you think?

Kids under 18 certainly should be able to get piercings.

First off: the age of consent in most of the USA and around the world is 16. What harm is allowing a child to consent to sex before they could think about it?

Second: 14% of people of piercings in places other than their earlobes.

Third: Piercings do heal over time

Fourth: I *believe* that piercings are a way for a child/teenager/adolescent to express themselves or maybe even find out who they are. Either way, if the piercing has a negative effect for a child - it should be a learning opportunity for them.

Fifth: Some places don't allow you without a parent's consent.

I apologize for the hours invested looking at this, I got busy while typing. Thank you.
