Piercing

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?

    My first question would be how he plans to eat. Because WOW.

    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 ;)

      It might be their body but stupid is stupid! Lol I can't imagine someone giving this person a job let alone a good job. Not to mention with a snake tongue wouldn't he hiss everytime he talked to someone? And how do you keep food from falling out of your face?

          I think Amy does make a good point. At 18, having a job and deciding that this is what you want to use your money on I guess I couldn't stop him. I was raised very seriously in a "my house my rules" home and I'm thankful that me and the bf agree on this. I would be mostly concerned that when it's time to move up from a job to a career, there would be issue. We all want a world where looks don't matter but we have to be real. Some things that shouldn't matter, do.
