Is it 'fine' to instantiate a widget without parent parameter?

There will only be one default Tk object, but there can be multiple Tk 

 >>> import tkinter as tk
 >>> r1 = tk.Tk()
 >>> r2 = tk.Tk()
 >>> r1.tk
<_tkinter.tkapp object at 0x000001F90F2F1D30>
 >>> r2.tk
<_tkinter.tkapp object at 0x000001F90F328930>
