I've seen children with tatoos and earrings I personally think it's wrong to mark a child with something that will be with them the rest of their lives...what do you think?

I totally agree with you. Most girls get their ears pierced at a young age and I do not have a problem with that. I have a son and daughter and my daughters ears were pierced as a baby. Myh son if he ever wanted to get his ears pierced will have to wait until he is out of my house., but I do not have a problem with that mostly because that is unnoticable if a person is not wearing any earrings. Now with tattoos that is more permanant and visual than piercings, and I beleive one should definently wait ntil they are of a legal age and would actually say over 25 years of age, that way they would be of a more sound and responsible mind to make the decision of what to put and where.

It depends on what aged children you are talking about. Of course, it's very wrong (IMO) to tattoo and pierce a kid less than 5-7 years old because they can't make the right decisions for themselves yet. But, if you're talking about a teen, I don't know. It's their decisions; make them make the right decision for themselves.
