Ear lobe piercing (1-2 sets) - whenever
Additional ear piercings or a tiny nose stud - I'd probably be ok with these by age 12-14, but they'd have to pay for it themselves
Other smaller piercings - probably about age 16, again paid by the kid
I won't allow massive amounts of piercings or a labret piercing. My mom worked in dental offices for ages and saw way too many people with their front teeth falling out because of the back of the piercing rubbing at the gums.
Once they graduate high school, they can do whatever they want.
Tattoos - I would probably start allowing at age 16 with some conditions. They have to pay for their own tattoos, think on it for at least a month (nothing on a whim), and I have to approve the artist/shop first.
In all cases, there can be room for those numbers to go up or down based on the kid.
