I know that as soon as we see this, most of us let out a gasp in shock, followed by some expletives. But it's a serious question. If your son or daughter was holding down a job and was for all intents and purposes a great human being, what would your reaction to this be? We saw this pic last night on facebook and laughed and made jokes but I really was curious about what the bf's reaction would be. Being a hard workin country boy from Montana, he said "not in my * house". Growing up around a lot of this, it doesn't shock me like it might shock others.
So honestly, what would you tell your son or daughter if they came home with this?
Beyond that - I don't know. It's their body and I am all about doing what you want to your own body, but I feel like with spacers that big, his cheeks will never heal. Not once have I met a 60 year old that thought big holes in their face were still cool. It would disappoint me if one of my kids decided to do this, but I think apart from the ones in his cheeks I wouldn't mind... and I would try to be polite about it and let my kids know that even though I don't like it, I respect their decision to do it.... but in the meantime, I'll just keep hoping mine don't do it ;)
I've seen a lot of it. My older brothers friends came over a lot growing up and pretty much all of them had some strange piercing or face tattoo or something.
I myself have my tongue pierced and have struggled a bit with the decision to take it out when Charlie is older because I don't know how to explain it to him.
