I know some people will have a strong opinion on this subject, including me, I hate them with a passion as I do Piercings, well most, ears are ok , But that’s is my personal opinion and yes I have told some people that I don’t agree with things but I wouldn’t say it to someone I don’t know, This week I have allowed and gave permission for my teen to have a Tattoo done, it was over 3 yrs that she designed it herself and has never lost the idea or changed it.
I went to the tattooist myself and spoke with them as I wanted to check a few things out.
All looked safe, hygienic and word of mouth was good also, I spoke about it being illegal as for under 18′s it is and that’s where I am wrong?, maybe!, but I agreed to sign the forms for her with one condition and that was, it was somewhere hidden, so we settled on the hip, not visible unless she wishes to show it, won’t have first impressions alter people’s choices and decisions about her.
So why did I sign? Well firstly it’s small and something very close to her heart and secondly, I was worried she would go to some where that maybe wasn’t as reputable and ended up with serious infection, she recently had her belly button pierced (against my wishes) but after hearing some of the stories about where she went I feel she was a lucky one, as she never suffered any side effects from it. Now I can prosecute myself and only myself as I agreed to it (not that I will)
I know I will receive some flak for allowing it but I feel I am justified in ensuring it was done to a high standard and not some back alley place trying to make a cheap buck at other people’s expense. I was also strongly influenced for the reasons why she wanted it done.
I am also hoping its put her off having more (but shussshhh don’t tell her that).…fingers crossed anyway and I have said I refuse to sign for anymore,
In life we sometimes have to comprise even if your not happy but checking things out and ensuring everything is safe is my way of ensuring the compromise doesn’t cause long lasting damage.
