Hey, kids! It’s illegal to pierce a 13-year-old’s belly. Even worse when she doesn’t want it done.

Three Fayette County, Georgia teens are in trouble for piercing a companion’s belly during lunch at school. According to police reports, the victim started out wanting the piercing, but then decided against it, but her “friends” were apparently adamant. It’s illegal to perform tattoos or body piercings on persons under eighteen, anyway.  No means no. And ouch means ouch. Now they’ve been suspended from school and face battery charges, along with the specific crime associated with underage body art.
