BODY PIERCING. It could be as dangerous as being Pranged with a Spear

Parents must approve if teens want to pierce their bodies.
And the following information would be invaluable to adults too.

CHILDREN under 16 wanting to pierce their ears, nose, or navel will need permission notes from their parents under laws to be introduced by the NSW Aus.Government.

And underage intimate body piercings will be outlawed, with operators facing fines of up to $22,000 if they are caught performing an intimate piercing on a child.

For any other piercing done without a parent's consent, the fine will be as high as $3000.

This is about making sure that children are protected from the health risks that can be associated with body piercing, which is a growing trend among young people.
Concerns over hepatitis B and C, toxic shock and blood poisoning have prompted the the tough parliamentary response that intimate piercing clearly raised child protection issues.

I can't see any reason why a child under the age of 16 would need to expose their intimate body parts to strange adults for the sake of fashion or a trend, even the most simple piercing can leave life-long scars.

The concern is, that things are fashionable and immediate because most adolescents work on a day-to-day timetable but they can deeply regret it later. Piercings done without medical guidance can result in serious infections and other ongoing problems.
If you have an eyebrow piercing, for example, it can leave a scar where the hair doesn't grow back, and intimate piercing should be left in the adult domain.

The regulations have have been signed off on by Cabinet and legislation is now being prepared and will be brought to Parliament shortly.
These rulings will only apply to Australian residents.

This comment has been taken from the previous post.

Having mulled over whether to publish or not , I decided it would provide some hilarity and a warning to the foolhardy.
This is true.

last week I was talking to this new age guy who had multiple rings on ears fingers and else where, yep and one on his dick knob, I had heard of his bragging about this earlier, however it turned out to be a disaster when his girlfriend got the ring jammed between a gap in her teeth and she panicked. You can guess more or less what happened, without stretching a point.

BANNED FROM

K- MART...........

This is why women should not take men shopping against their
will.

DON'T TAKE ME IF I DON'T WANT TO GO...........

After Mr. and Mrs. Fenton retired, Mrs. Fenton insisted her
husband accompany her on her trips to K -Mart.

Unfortunately, Mr. Fenton was like most men--he found shopping
boring and preferred to get in and get out.

Equally unfortunately, Mrs. Fenton was like most women--she
loved to browse. One day Mrs.
Fenton received the following letter from
her local K -Mart.

Dear Mrs. Fenton,

Over the past six months, your husband has been causing quite a
commotion in our store. We cannot tolerate this behaviour and may be
forced to ban both of you from the store. Our complaints against Mr.
Fenton are listed below and are documented by our video surveillance
cameras.

1. June 15: Took 24 boxes of condoms and randomly put them in
people's carts when they weren't looking.

2 . July 2: Set all the alarm clocks in Housewares to go off at
5-minute intervals.

3. July 7: Made a trail of tomato juice on the floor leading to
the women's restroom.

4. July 19: Walked up to an employee and told her in an
official
voice, 'Code 3 in Housewares. Get on it right away.'

5. August 4: Went to the Service Desk and tried to put a bag of
M&M's on lay -b y.

6. September 14: Moved a 'CAUTION - WET FLOOR' sign to a
carpeted area.

7. September 15: Set up a tent in the camping department and
told other shoppers he'd invite them in if they would bring pillows and
blankets from the bedding department.

8. September 23: When a clerk asked if they could help him he
began crying and screamed, 'Why can't you people just leave me alone?'

9. October 4: Looked right into the security camera and used it
as a mirror while he picked his nose.

10 November 10: While handling guns in the hunting department,
he asked the clerk where the antidepressants were.

11. December 3: Darted around the store
suspiciously while
loudly humming the ' Mission Impossible' theme.

12. December 6: In the auto department, he practiced his
'Madonna look' by using different sizes of funnels.

13. December 18: Hid in a clothing rack and when people browsed
through, yelled 'PICK ME! PICK ME!'

14. December 21: When an announcement came over the loud
speaker, he assumed a foetal position and screamed 'OH NO! IT'S THOSE
VOICES AGAIN!'

And last, but not least ..

15. December 23: Went into a fitting room, shut the door, waited
awhile, then yelled very loudly, 'Hey! There's no toilet paper in here!'

Regards,
K -Mart..
