A couple comments about this body-piercing stuff. I know that
ear-piercing is pretty safe and has been done for years to people of all
ages. But I've heard that piercing other body parts, such as the
tongue, can be dangerous. Is this true? If so, then should we allow a
boy to endorse self-mutillation for the younger ones to follow the lead?
Also, "A Scout is Obedient" should be checked. I don't know about
body-piercing, other than ears are perfectly legal at any age, but I
believe that in NH tattoos are not legal for anyone under 18, even with
FWIW, my opinion is that if it's safe, clean, and legal, then I'm all
for allowing it.
