... and it's a matter of personal choice. I think WE
both agree on excessive facial piercings aren't necessarily attractive, but then again, the person that has them probably doesn't care that you or I think it's strange, weird, odd ... etc.
I was brought up in a household where what I wore/did wasn't shunned. Sure, my mom would say 'what is that you're wearing?' or 'why are you wearing/doing that?' ... but that was the extent of it. As long as I wasn't harming anyone or myself, she would say carry on then. I've taken the same approach to life. If someone chooses to pierce this or tattoo that, I'm cool with that. It's funny, because I have a harder time accepting the guys that wear the pants down to their knees than I do with piercings/tattoos.
We're bringing our daughter up like that as well. She is not into the tattoo/piercing thing and won't be until she's 18 (when she's free to do what she wants) but she has had her hair dyed every imaginable colour they have. Some say why let her do it ... and my response is, why not? It's not hurting you, me, her. She's not breaking any laws. And the best part about it is, it's only hair!
'Kids these days' ... I'm almost as old you as and I guess I should be saying that, but I can't because I'm still a kid myself I guess. Will I ever grow up ... highly unlikely.
wow ... I just noticed how long this rant is. Im done.
