can you ground a tesla coil into an outlet?

I need to know because i am building a tesla coil#

I don't ground mine because it is not running off an isolated transformer.

If your tesla is isolated and you have the 3d wire ground, then you can
ground the primary coil to the outlet ground.

You technically can, but I've read that it's not a good idea.
