What are your rules on these two things? My girls complain that I'm mean and far too old-fashioned (but I can live with that). I allowed ears to be pierced, but that's it until they're 18. I don't allow tattoos, either. Of course, one child has gone out behind my back and had her belly button pierced, and another got a tattoo on her shoulder. Both were grounded for going against my rules, but of course, now the others are jealous.
