    Important Could all UK residents/nationals sign this please?

    I grabbed this from the wife

    This petition is for the PM to introduce a minimum age of at least 10 for ear piercing. I created this petition after hearing of yet another baby being put through needless pain & trauma for the sake of the parents vanity. I think it is disgusting that parents are allowed to force their children to go through the pain of getting their ears pierced when the child cannot voice their opinion on it and think that it should be stopped. To me, it is a form of child abuse.

    Please sign the petition and pass the link to everyone you know (UK only) so that places such as Claire's Accessories will no longer be allowed to do this.
    If anyone would sign it that would be great

    if you don't agree please don't post
    Strange request in an open forum.

    1. I think you are right.......there is nothing worse than seeing a pikey family pierce their young childrens ears.

    2. On the other hand, at least they are branded scummy so we know for future reference.

    so because you disagree with what he said, you're going to let little kids as young as like.. a few weeks have their ear pierced and go through the pain of it getting knocked all the time and maybe even get infected with the baby's very poor immune system?

    Yeah, because this is going to be the first petition to achieve anything in law and if it doesn't, well that's the fault of people disagreeing with it here?

    I don't think infants should have their ears pierced, I think it's bad parenting if anything is.

    But I don't think society should legislate against everything that might offend someone's sensibilities, particularly when it comes to parenting where we might outlaw pierced ears but leave 1000 other ways for ignorant and unfit parents to screw up their kids. Or should we just outlaw 99% of all the choices we might have made, just to be sure? When did all this clamouring "I don't like somefink so it should be banned" start anyway?

    You have to be 18 to get a tattoo regardless if I remember correctly.

    What? Where did he say that?

    Zak made the point that HEXUS is an open discussion board (within reason). Any member asking people asking others not to post in their thread for disagreeing....well....isn't the way we work

    i have a tattoo and have for just over a year.
    so long as you take proof that you're 16 and proof that they are actually your parent then it's perfectly legal.

    well the way i took it was that he wasn't going to sign the petition cos he didn't like what was said at the end.

    Oh god, how pathetic.

    Lets start with male and female circumcision in the UK before heading down something as utterly pointless as ear piercing.
