I think I agree with many women about the piercing: it is a temporary
situation. If I decide that I'm tired of having the ear pierced, then it's a
relatively easy thing to let the hole close (which it will do in a couple of
days, he says, having learned this the hard way).
As for tattoos, I too have flirted with the idea. I think that everyone does
at some point in their life. I haven't decided to get one, but by the same token
I haven't decided not to get one either. If you want to know my opinion about, I
think that a small, personalized tattoo, something like an owl or possibly a
maple leaf could mean something to the tattooed. If this tattoo is placed in a
relatively private location, then the things are perfect.
It may sound old-fogeyish, but if my hypothetical child were contemplating
some sort of bodyart, I'd hope he/she would choose something less permanent than
a tattoo. I have a niece with multiple ear piercings plus one in her navel and a
great-nephew with pierced tongue and lower lip; if they decide later that
they're bored with them, all they have to do is let the holes grow back together.
A tattoo is a permanent thing, short of laser removal.
