Why teenagers get tattoos and body piercings.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 8 Up-These books are well written, well researched, and engaging. Reluctant readers will be drawn in by the snappy, funny sidebars and clear photos, which are gorgeous and, at times, gory. Some students will be intrigued and others will be repulsed by images of flesh-eating diseases. The authors take a largely nonjudgmental tone as they describe the reasons teens and adults permanently alter their bodies. This series is nothing if not surprising and refreshing, with each page packed with information that teens will want to repeat and share. For example, naval piercing became fashionable "as the bikini culture took root in the 1950s." Health discourages teens from body modification more than the others in the series, but it also makes an argument for the mental-health benefits some experience from body modification. Crammed with facts, anecdotes, and research studies, all of which are referenced, this set explores the complexity of a topic that might seem narrow at first glance. α(c) Copyright 2013.

From Booklist:

Tackling an on-trend topic, this entry in the Library of Tattoos and Body Piercings series offers a readable, if inconsistent, introduction to diverse body modifications, from ear sculpting to scarification and piercing techniques. Along with exploring reasons behind teens’ interest in the practices—celebrity influence, self-expression, rebellion—the book addresses risks, such as infections, tattoo removal costs, or how modifications may hamper employment. Some elements are definitely not for the faint of heart, including graphically detailed content like a sidebar describing tattooing the whites of eyes, or a discussion (and accompanying color photo) of tongue splitting. The often anecdotally related information, including teens’ stories or experiences, isn’t always specifically or consistently attributed or documented. Also, some broad generalizations may make this not a good report choice. However, careful consideration of the topic gives those interested much to ponder. Grades 10-12. --Shelle Rosenfeld
