what about it? Some people think it have health benefit from it, religious isn't the only reasons why they do it. Plus, it is easier to be done when you are an infant. Some guys who never had it done decide to have it done because of frequent UTI or something like. They didn't really like the feel of it after it. If done as a child, it wouldn't make a different to them because there is nothing miss.
as piercing on children, I don't agree with that either, but you can take off the earrings. I didn't get my ears pierced until I beg my mother for one. I know some parents do it to help their child look more feminine. I definitely don't think parents should be piercing their tongue and such. To me, that the same as tattooed body art which should be a personal decision (when they are adults). It's not the parent's place to add art to their child's body.
In other culture, they would pierce their child's ear. and stretch it until it get huge. I think it's cruel and hope they will no long find it attractive anymore.
Don't get me wrong.. I had my daughters ears pierced when she was an infant.. had my son circumcised as an infant.
Does that make me a horrible parent??
what about piercings? it weirds me out when i see pictures of babies with earrings.. i've heard that parents do it when they're babies because they won't remember the pain.
I don't remember the pain when I had my ear pierced at preteen.
When I was kid, I remember watching my cousin CRIED her heart out everytime her mom put in earrings. I thought why would her mom do something like that? Who cares about earrings? This cousin of mine was pierced when she was an infant.

Parents tattoed their kids with guitar string
A couple living in northwest Georgia was arrested for tattooing their children at home, according to the Atlanta Journal Constitution. Patty Jo Marsh and her husband Jacob Bartels used an old tattoo machine and a guitar string as a needle to give six of their seven children, ages 10 to 17, small cross-shaped tattoos.
Marsh and Bartels opted not to give their youngest 7-year-old child a tattoo because they decided he was too young, according to the Chattanooga Times Free Press.
When two of the children stayed over with their biological mother, she reported the incident to Division of Family and Children Services, and Marsh and Bartels ended up in jail.
Georgia law prohibits tattoos from anyone other than a licensed professional. Children under 18 are also prohibited from getting tattoos.
According to the Journal-Constitution:
At least 10 police officers searched the family's home on Dec. 28, Marsh says, and she and her husband were arrested. They were each charged with cruelty to children, reckless conduct and tattooing, something Marsh they didn't realize was illegal.
"If we knew that, we wouldn't have done it," Marsh said.
The couple bonded out of jail Friday, and now is awaiting a court date. DFACS temporarily took the children out of the home, Marsh said. But now all of the children are home.
Marsh says she feels that the entire incident has gotten blown out of proportion. The couple contends they are good parents, but now they're being labeled child abusers, which Marsh says is untrue.
"If I'm such a bad parent, then how come they brought the kids back right after I got out jail?" Marsh asked.
What about Native Tribes? Some tribes do tattooing their children as blessing or something.
IMO, The kids need to get tattoo at age 16 over. If the kids are mature and good grade at school. I don't have tattoo yet. I don't think it's right for parents got kids tattoo under 14. That is bad influence.
