letting your teen express himself?

Just looking for other peoples opinions..I have a son who is 17 and was asking to get his nose pierced for awhile so I recently let him get it done thinking he will be 18 in 6 months anyway..now he is obsessed with being tan and talked me into letting him buy a self tanning product even though they are safe I guess I worry that other teens might pick on him for it..do other moms of teens feel torn about letting their teen express themselves in these ways?

If that's how he's expressing himself, I say you are really lucky. I have a stepdaughter who is expressing herself right now in much more public and lifelong consequences kind of ways. I say, respectfully, count your blessings! Lol. As far as the other kids picking on him, he is going to have to learn to deal with conflict out in the real world very soon, if he's 17, and I really don't think you have to worry too much. He will be out of school and on with his life very soon! Hope this helps.
