"Body piercing among young people has been linked with risk behaviors such as the abuse of legal and illegal substances, risky sexual behavior, school truancy and running away, suicide ideation and attempts, and delinquent behavior."

Allowing to get tattoos lead to these side affects and that will affect your life.

This will help to persuade people not to allow children or themselves get piercings or tattooing due to the risk of having drug use and poor academics.

Getting tattoos will last forever and and piercings won't but they could still have side affects.
