Tongue rings and motherhood...good idea or highly inappropriate? Your opinions welcome

It doesn't matter what you look like or wear....it matters on what and how you act and raise the child. The mind is what is important...not the tongue ring.

I think that tongue rings are not a good example to a child in relation to motherhood. The tongue rings mostly portray people in a negative way. If one had them before being a mother then it can be understandable, but a mother who has no rings should not think of having them.

A younger ring is for one thing and one thing only, and that one thing has nothing to do with motherhood ... in fact it might help PREVENT motherhood.

I think it's fine. That's how you express yourself so who really cares what others think

Tongue rings are ok if you are planning to encourage and allow exotic piercings for your child.

It's not really a good idea, but it is not highly inappropriate either. My mom at one point took me and my sister with her when she got her eyebrow and nose pierced. It made no difference on how we behaved, she's still a wonderful mother. Looks have nothing to do with how you raise your child

tongue rings or other popular forms of artistic expression are not for me. i am very old-fashioned, i thought i was rebellious by double piercing my ears! i have a wonderful girlfriend, who has three children with her husband of 17(?) years, she has a tongue ring, a full back tattoo as well as several other tattoos, and has died her hair pink and another time blue. she is one of the best, most loving mothers i have ever seen. she goes to all if the school meetings, she is on the PTA, etc. oh she is also very active in her church and the youth group she teaches. plus she works full time ( now that her children are all in school) and she is attending school to get her degree.

what you look like has nothing to do with what kind of person you are, or what kind of mother you are.

I think it depends on you. I have my tongue pierced, got it done when I was 17 and I'm 25 now. I have two boys, 5 and 3. the people I've known for years didn't even know I had my tongue pierced for the longest time because I don't play with it and I don't show it off. if you.portray yourself in the wrong way with it you can end up looking trashy. but people assume it has something to do with sexual acts. which is not the case. I got it because I like piercings. but I disagree with people saying you shouldn't allow your children to think its ok because then you're just teaching them that people with tattoos and piercings don't deserve respect, and you're teaching your child how to discriminate from an early age which is worse than a piercing. if my kids want any tattoos or piercings I will support them, because what they put on their body does not define them as a person. their actions and kindness towards other people are what define them.
