Parenting Study
Product Number:
TC8023

In this timely study for parents of teens we'll explore our responsibilities as Christian parents when it comes to forming an educated opinion about tattoos and piercings.

Researchers estimate that a quarter of the population between the ages of eighteen and thirty has a tattoo and half of the adults (women and men) in the United States have pierced ears. No longer restricted to alternative lifestyles, tattoos and piercings have become mainstream.

Where did the practices come from? Can a tattoo be a form of religious commitment? What is the cultural history and significance of body art? What does the Bible have to say? (Yes, it's in there!) What are the potential long-term physical and social consequences of tattoos and piercings? Discussing this topic with your teen can be tough, but this study will help.

Sue Washburn is a certified public school teacher, a Sunday school teacher, and a freelance parenting writer from Pennsylvania. She is the parent of a teen and pre-teen.
