I got my piercings done in Asia and did not need parental consent. The nose stud was a cultural thing from growing up in a densely Hindu populated area. The others, trend mostly. And tongue piercings aren't painful at all. They also aren't a high-risk piercing if done properly. There's a specific place where it should be pierced. Belly and nose hurt more. But yes, piercings can cause scar tissue, even with ears.
All that said, I have removed all 23 body piercings, except for one in each earlobe
After all, I'm not a party girl anymore, I'm a mother and I hope my examples will rub off on my daughter! .. Yeh, I know, good luck with that huh. Lol
