Intimate body piercing for children banned in Wales

From today 01/02/18, it is illegal for a person under 18 to get an intimate piercing. The reasons are the piercing risk of causing health problems and to help protect young people who might be vulnerable to sexual abuse.

More information is available in this article from the BBC.
