    So she is cognitively impaired with a vehicle, out on the road with others. So she really isn't impaired, right?

    All you have to do is sign on the dotted line on the papers at a piercing/ tattoo place and prove that you're over 18. If she asked for a lip piercing and she's over 18, boom, you have consent.

    Many people with cognitive impairments don't have (and don't necessarily need) a guardian. If she doesn't have a guardian, she can consent to a piercing or any other legal thing. If she does have a guardian, it's possible that they consented for her. Also, most places like piercing pagodas, probably wouldn't even think to ask that question and would just let her sign for herself.

    Don't think me judgemental, but if she is that cognitively impaired, how did she consent to having her lip pierced?
