Well, Marek, I don't think that anyone would let a child get a body mod :) So your argument is a bit off.
We are all talking about adult individuals here.
We are lucky enough to live in a world where we get to decide if we are going to change or decorate our bodies and in what way. We can choose to dye our hair red, make our nose smaller, pierce our eyebrows or do massive scarification or to do none of that and stay as we are.
Importance of having such choice is of utmost importance and banning some aspects of that choice is a gateway to restricting our other freedoms. Who are we to say when it is ok for a girl to have breast implants? So what if she only wants bigger boobs or if she had a mastectomy? How is that our business?
Who decides what gets banned? Do we get to, globally vote on it? (I don't think so)... What is next to be banned than? Piercings? Wearing jeans? Will we get appointed appropriate hair color like in North Korea?
When we see something extreme we don't approve of, and start demanding restrictions as a selfish shits we all are (human nature is "me first") we should all think of the consequences of such demands. And first off : Is it my business what someone does in their own time, with themselves and to themselves?
I will not be forgotten This is my time to shine I've got the scars to prove it
Only the strong survive
I'm not afraid of dying Everyone has their time Life never favored weakness
Welcome to the pride

Woah woah!
You got me all wrong, I'm not talking about limiting people's choices when it comes to what they wear or how they do their makeup or hair, I'm just talking about the stuff that carries a serious health risk. Of course nobody is going to let a child get a body mod, I used that argument only to illustrate a point, but tell me, when is a child not a child anymore? Who decides when that happens and when a child becomes free to choose to do with it's body what it will? You mentioned that we are talking about adults here, but that's just the thing, you can't expect everyone (be they 8, 18 or 80) to be as mature and informed as you for example. There isn't a magical age where you suddenly become enlightened, stop being a stupid shortsighted kid and become this wise adult. I've met people who barely entered high school who seem more mature and wise than some of my older (like in their 70's, 80's old) family members. Just because you have common sense doesn't mean everyone else will.
I don't think we should stifle other people's freedom, I'm really not like that, I just think that medical procedures, that have no health benefit or serve no real purpose while carrying huge risks and can potentially kill you, should not be done all willy nilly. Either ban them from being optional and have health care professionals decide whether a procedure is necessary or at the very least have much more rigorous standards when it comes to people doing elective surgery

That age is determined by law, and it is either 18 in Europe or 21 in US :)
That is the age by which law is holding us accountable for our actions :)
Personal wisdom and maturity are something else entirely :)
After that age we are free to do with our bodies, personal possessions and lives as we see fit :)
Like it or not, some people choose to do medical procedures to improve their looks and that is solely their decision.
You wouldn't like it if someone enforced a law by which you are forced to do such procedures, would't you? That is exactly how people who want those procedures feel about banning them...
Limiting personal freedom and decisions involving our bodies is the wrongest thing. Like preventing females from having abortion done...

i impressed with intelectual response regarding this topic, really. Dont want to jerk it at or troll at all.
Just have one point of view toward children modifications (in our civilised enviroment).
Across globe kids are being subjected to it, becouse its their way of living and culture.
Even in civilised communities, parents let their kids pierce ears and whatnot, right? ;)

so who are we to disagree on that and set some values, even if its next door menace :silly: ?

My father did my firs couple uf piercings, he also took me to do my tongue piercing when I was 14 :D That is the legal limit for body mods in my country if parents are present :D If they are not willing to go with you, just wait until you are 18, that is the rules :D
But with parents agreeing to participate in this kind of body decoration, there is also a legal limit set, no one is allowed to tattoo a fouryearold. :D

I love tattoos, I love most piercings, scarification can be kinda cool, split tongues are disgusting, implants are disgusting, buuuuuut people should be allowed to do whatever the fuck they want as long as it affects only them. If what they do is stupid, dangerous and can get them killed then good riddance. That's just Darwinism at work :evil:

I also found a body mod that is apparently popular while browsing this guy's page. Pointy elf ears! :woohoo:
Some of them are obviously not done well and look nasty but most of the ones I've seen look awesome as hell!

I would get into a whole argument about how legal age of maturity is arbitrary and varies from country to country (somewhere it's less than 18 when it comes to drinking or the age of consent) and how you can't use that as an argument precisely because it's not a unified standard age that everybody agrees on, but I won't because you guys are already misunderstanding me and think that I'm being oppressive and want to take away people's freedom, which couldn't be farther from the truth.

Can we at least agree that people should be informed enough, responsible enough and fully aware of any risk or complications that might arise before making such a decision?

So glad we are disecting this [seems to me] enormous thread.
Ghazghkull pointed out one more fantasy aesthetic. Personally i've never seen elf live. :woohoo:
I mean it all depends on ear geometry and size. Imagine loopy ears in that scenario :sick:

I wanted to introduce Caim :evil: He is unbelievable creature.
So lucid in his pursuit of unconventional beauty.
Versatile and deterrent in his lifestyle.
With his hair-raising looks he's managing to do more stuff than any other normal looking person I know.
