Teens, Tattoos & Piercings

Teens, Tattoos & PiercingsThe Ohio Department of Youth Services has also used the book as an educational resource, and re-entry aid.


Here is what people are saying about “Teens, Tattoos, & Piercings” . . .

“Just finished reading your book, “Teens, Tattoos, & Piercings.” I found it to be not only an “easy read” but also, inviting to the reader, highly informative and very thought provoking.  It raises questions the vast majority of people with tattoos as well as those contemplating getting a tattoo never dreamed of considering.  Given the demographics of those getting tattoos and the possible consequences of an often “in-the-moment” and seemingly benign decision, as an educator, I would strongly recommend that Teens, Tattoos & Piercings” become a “must read” in today’s health classes or information on tattoos become a part of our school’s health curriculum at the very least.  The information you provide could prevent unnecessary regret and hours of untold pain, both physical and financial.”

“Dr.  Hall – I wanted to thank you for writing “Teens, Tatoos and Piercings.”  It is clear, comprehensive and compelling.  As the mother of 4 children – who definitely does not want any of them getting a tattoo or piercing, other than ear piercing, you have given me a powerful and non-judgmental tool to talk them out of it.”

Shannon Jerse


“If you are planning on getting a tattoo, or multiple tattoos, do yourself a favor “READ THIS BOOK” so there will not be any unpleasant surprises. It is better to be “safe than sorry”. There is information in this book that will help you make a wise decision as to “tattooing” and even the tattoos you might choose that will be with you forever. This book could be one of your best investments if you, or someone in your family is planning on a life that includes tattoos. GET THE BOOK!”

“Teens, Tattoos, & Piercings” was very easy to read and contained a wealth of information. The book really made one think about the ramifications of tattoos, all the way from health concerns to possible impacts on employment. I also appreciated the tone of the book; it did not tell you that you should not get a tattoo, but focused on directing you to make an informed decision. Parents should seriously think about having their teenage children read this book and discussing it with them.”
