Although I sport a tattoo, I've never felt the need to get any part of my body pierced. I was born with enough holes to manage, I don't need to add any more. But hey, if folks want to trick themselves out with shininess, I don't begrudge them at all. They don't need my permission to pierce!
But nobody wants to see anybody get injured or suffer long-term drawbacks to piercing. However, it looks like that might be possible with the recent trend of folks piercing their fingers.
And you have to hate to see something awful come from something done to celebrate a joyous occasion.
