A bit of backstory:
My MOH has multiple tattoos as well as piercings including having her septum pierced. She doesn't wear jewlery that is inceribly tacky or anything just a small piece that can easily be flipped up inside of her nose which is something that she does daily for work.
The issue at hand:
My mother things that she should not have her piercings or tattoos visible. And in her mind my tattoos shouldn't be visable either. She says that if I let things things go and let the tattoos and body piercings be shown that I will regret it later in life. My MOH has also already offered to flip up her septum piercing and cover her tattoos should that be what I decide.
I personally think that if this is who she is why should I ask her to cover these things up? I have tattoos as well. If I don't want to cover mine up why should she have to? And the reason I don't want to cover mine up is because when I got them I knew that I was making a lifetime commitment to them. Why try to play pretend? I love them. That is why I got them to begin with. They all have signifigant meaning to me as do hers to her.
So here's the question:
Should I give my mother's concerns more thought? Might she be right and may I regret my decision later? I don't feel like I will but I am afraid that I am too short sighted in this.
