i think people under the age of 18 should be allowed to get tattoos with a parents consent because if you can get pierceings done in *private places* than why cant we get tattoos? that makes no sense!

I THINK TEENS UNDER 18 SHOULDNT BE ABLE TO GET TATTOOS BECAUSE THEY MIGHT WRITE I LOVE... AND LATER IN LIFE THERE GOING TO REGRET GETTING IT AND THAT WAS BECAUSE THEY WERE TO YOUNG TO GET IT. I'M 14 AND THINK TATTOOS ARE VERY DANGERS PEOPLE DONT KNOW HOW LUCKY THEY ARE.

you should be able to get a tattoo if youre under 18 if you would like.  It's your body and if you screw it up it's your fault.  If youre so stupid to wrtie " i love.." then it's youre fault no one elses.

I have to debate this topic. I think that kids should be allowed to get a tattoo if they do the correct research. Look at a number or tattoo parlor and find the best one(cleanest, legal, not bad part of own ect..) If a teenager wants to get a tattoo then let them its their body and they should have control of their body. But i don't think Children that are under lets say 14 should get them because they might get a sports team or a power ranger or something stupid like that. I see people all the time with tattoos and i have to admit i judge them every body does. You see a man on a Harley with a huge tattoo of a bloody skull you don't think that guy looks like a nice guy. So if you are wanting a tattoo think of the consequences.

If you want a tattoo you should be able to get one. it's your body so why not?
If you can get peirceins why not a tattoo
people should give a real reason why not!
I can understand if it covered an arm but if its just a little logo or something, you really should be allowed.

I'm a tattoo artist and I tattooed a 14 year old one time with both parents consent.About, a year later she came back to me saying it  stretched.I told her it would because she was still growing.The tattoo didn't look all that bad, it still looked the same.3 months later ir stretched alot.Now, she is trying to get it removed.I will do a tattoo to anyone 14 or older with a parent consent (unless your over 18).It's your body and I respect it.But, think about what you want.If you are under 18 I will "NOT" put and volgar or violence on you.It can be big or small."NO" nudity either.So, if you want a tattoo and your under 18 really think about it before you get it.I'm not offending anybody.Just, think about the consequences!

i think that tattoos should be aloud to younger people around the age of 16. when you are young your skin is way smaller than what is going to become. it will need to stretch out if you get a tattoo it will end up stretching and un-recognizable. but i think 18 might be a little too over protective. 16 just sounds perfect for it.

Dont try to relate getting peirced with getting tattooed. A peircing heals up and will go away. A tattoo is permanant. 4 months ago i got a tattoo on my back, the first one i ever got. This is when i turned eighteen. It covers almost my entire right side of my back. I loook at it now and say.. "Why the hell did i do that?" Sure at the time it seemed like a good idea but now i have to live with Treebeard on my back... forever.

Actually now that im on the topic! My girl is 17 and wants to get a tat, so if there are any tattooists in NH that are willing to ink her up, give me some info on where your at :)

Its nothing crazy at all and it its a family deal.

Kids don't know what they want, why should we allow a 14 year old to get a permanent tattoo?  Think about it, at an age like that we all want to be one thing and then eventually we grow out of it, so of course they may want a tattoo at the time, but further along in life, they may regret it.

I am doing a paper on if kids should be able to get tattoos or not. I think they should because it is their body for one and if they have the right tattooist they can get it done. I want a tattoo and I just did research about it. You can get diseases from it such as HIV,Hepatitis B,and have allergic reactions. The good things about tattoos are you can express your self and show your own individuality.
Tip:Before getting a tattoo you should eat jello cause it will stop from bleeding.

Here are a few words from me, a tattoo artist. There are many reasons for young people to not get tattoos. Lets start with the obvious...in most states, if you are under 18 you are still a minor, and minors are minors because they have not matured enough to make those decisions for themselves. It is a law that is there to protect you from un-scroupulous "artists" who take advantage of your lack of knowledge on the subject. Furthermore, any "studio" that will tattoo minors are probably breaking about twenty laws that levy heavy fines for doing that kind of thing. Here in Texas it's a 10,000 dollar fine and permanent revocation of your studio liscense. Let's think about that for a second, If a "studio" is willing to make 50 or 100 bucks off of doing an illegal tattoo for you, and they get busted, they get a huge fine right? 100 is only 1% of 10,000. See where Im going with this? Besides, if they will break a law that carries a huge fine just to make a hundred bucks then imagine how many other laws they are probably braking in the realm of sterilization, contamination, ect. So, directly from the mouth of a tattoo artist, WAIT. Wait untill you are legally old enough and wait untill you have done the proper research.

you people are all saying the same things ahhh. i am 17 i will be 18 in 1 month and i wanted one when i was younger but i am glad i am waiting until im 18 because i would have gotten a stupid tattoo of like a butterfly or something that every girl has. Now that i have had to think about it i am going to get a tattoo that actually means something to me and not just a pretty picture.So i think you should wait until your 18 because it gives you time to really think about what the tattoo would mean to you.

If you want to go to a nice place and you have some thing on your body it not going to look to classy!~I like tattoo's don't get me wrong but i don't think that before 18 you relize all of the consequences it could bring!~

I think that anybody should be able to get a tattoo!!! its your own choice if you want to put something on your body.

I really do beleive people under the age of 18 should be able to get a tattoo but with Parental consult. Sometimes if teens go and get tattoo's when they are under 18 and without telling their parents they get something stupid and regret it when they grow up and have to endure the pain and cost of getting it removed.. I think that if you think you are ready and you are mature enough to get one then your parents will know that also.. You may have to do a little extra work for it but you will get one.. And even if your parents won't let you get a tattoo right now if it sounds so good right now and you really want it bad enough it is probably worth the wait until you are 18.

I am doing my senior project on tattoos an arguing that tattoos should decrease the age limit to 15 with parent consent i mean like some people said you only live once why not make the best out of it.  They should let you get a tattoo if your parents lets you my mom let me but yet they would not let me get it in a tattoo shop because i was 17 3 months from being 18 wouldn't that lead you to get it with someone who is not a professional?  It almost convinced me too but thank good i got mine and it was done the right way.

i think anyone should be able to get a tattoo at any age but its their fault if it starts stretching because of them growing i also think they should have parental permission to get a tattoo

Tats are vary complex. They mean so many things to so many people. Going in to get a tat just for the hell of it and the tats like a cool disign but has no story or perpose to it then yes it is wrong. I have been planning my tat since i was 12. It tells a story about a part of my life. Now that I am 17 I have had my tat for 2 years and if people want to judge me then let them. People only get tats to share there selfes with others.

personally i think that the age of consent for tattoos should be 16 , mostly because i am 16 and want a tattoo. but i do see the reason that the age is 18 because of it being ~(the trend ) or whatever and then the  person regreting it but if it is 16 with pearent consent , surley the pearent is responsible enough to see what there child is getting and say no to tats saying i love..... or somthing that is a passing trend

I LOVE tattoo flash
and Tattoos for that matter
i believe they are a way to express yourself sure
but i support the "over 18 or parental consent"
because otherwise
how would a teen know what they're doing, more then three quarters of the teens i know are either stoned or drunk the entire day.
so, if you really want a tattoo
just ask, then explain why
most parents should understand.
(p.s. i'm 15)

I think that anyone is able to get a tattoo. Is your body and you can do whatever you want to do with it. That is true you do have to have a parent's consent. I have 2 already and my mom has gone with the two times. Just think about what you really want to get tattooed like them " I Love..." you might regret it someday.. just be careful...

I think that you should be able to get a tattoo if your under 18, BUT your parents should have to give the consent. I am 17 1/2 and its bulls*** that I can't get a tattoo even if my mom is there. I already have a tattoo that I got done unperfessionally and I'm so mad that I ever did it because now I need it covered up like no other. Don't make the mistake I did. If you really have to wait, then just wait.

I am 16 i have 2 tattoos and have been pierced over 34 times and still have 20. I Ive in Canada and believe that anyone over 16 who is nearly positive that they are done growing should be allowed to get a tattoo without consent. If i were a parent i would rather have my 16 yr old having a tattoo than driving a car, its much safer in the proper environment. I don't agree with the 18 yr or else parental consent, its not your parents' body its yours. I'm not saying that you should have a bunch of gross gruesome stuff on u permanently but i don't see the harm in a few decorations. People at the age of 14 or at the age of 15 (how old i was when i got my first) should consider whether they will still like the chosen art. I love being under the needle but its nothing to get stupid about.

I think the age for piercings (other than the ear or nose, should be lowered to 15 or maybe 14(it's a stretch). I think this because by the time an adolecent is 15, they will know the risks and procedures and the pain that may  be required along with the piercing. It is your body and if a teen makes the mistake of getting an unsterile piercing, they must live the mistake they made. If your going to do it, do it right.

I'd like to make the suggestion that if anyone wants to put a permanent (if it's done properly,) work of art on their body, age shouldn't be the prevailing factor but intelligence and maturity should be. Spelling correctly is usually a sign of both. (Especially when there is a spell checker directly under the post field.)
If someone can't express themselves verbally, they obviously don't have the intellectual faculty to make sound judgments.

I think that as a teen wanting to get a tattoo is a big decision to make.  Yes, I do think that you should consider all aspects of the situation, what it will be?  Why should you get this one over that one?  Is it stupid?  Does it have a meaning to "ME" behind it?  Can I live with this forever?  I have wanted a tattoo for lets say 2 years now, and just decided on two that I could actually get, and am still not sure about them... just be wise if you find a place that will do it under 18 that it is clean and they have a book with pictures of work they have done, make sure they wont make your good tattoo a horrible tattoo.  I am 16 and believe that it will take until you until you are bout 17-18 to even decide on a tattoo that is worth putting on your body, your temple...  keep these thing in mind, don't hurt yourself physically by going through pain, and don't hurt yourself mentally by getting a tattoo that your going to want to hide the rest of your life because you can't afford laser removal.  A lot to think about and consider.

Well, Im researching this topic tattooing. I think that tattooing is a very serious thing and you really should have to think about your consequences before you go and do. I myself am thinking about getting a tattoo, but after the research in this project im not too sure i'll be doing that, at least anytime soon.  Tattoos can stretch as you get older and may even cause many defects in your everyday life. Think about if you get a tattoo of a character that you are really into at that stage in your life but as your age progresses you would not want the same thing, what do you do then, removing a tattoo is very costly and may i mention more painful. Well, the decision is yours, Have Fun !!

well i'mall in for tattoos they're like a way of expression and the only difference is that you're not drawing it on a paper but on you're skin that will be there forever, but you chould always get that removed or just covered up. i do agree you should get your tattoos at about 16 since your skin seems to stop stretching. and as for parent permission well that would be kwool if every one's parents wouldn't flip over some thing so simple.i think if you do get a tattoo have some time to think it over give your self a year or six months and if you still want the same tattoo then go for it! just be smart about it educate your self before hand.

Absolutely wait till you are 18.  You can express yourself in non-permanent ways till then.  Aside from the expense of tats and the need for sterile needles, people can develop allergies to the tattoo ink, which can make them sick and cause immune system problems.  Besides, if you are 12 and think that Hillary Duff is the coolest thing ever and tattoo her name on your arm, you are going to feel like an idiot from the time you are 13 till you die!

People under 18 are able to get piercings because when you take it out, there may be a small scar, but very tiny.  Any tattoo will show more.  

I agree that people should be able to get a tattoo at a younger age if they are well informed and have researched it enough, but who's to judge that?  For every one person that got something that really means something 50 would get something they would later regret.  I am not the same person I was at 15.  I'm not even the same person I was at 20, but some things have never changed.  I think 18 is good just because at least then you are legally recognized in the US as an adult.  At that point it's your own fault if you get something you don't like.  

As far as piercing "private places", that should be 18 and up too.  If you go to a place that will pierce genitals on minors, get out.  Some people will take advantage of others as much as they can.  

I don't know of any states at this point that allow tattooing on anyone under 18 even with parental consent.  California for certain doesn't.

i think as long as your sixteen and have a parents permission you are old enough to make the decission of getting a tattoo or not.  like the other girl said you are old enough to drive and get a job. heck you can even get tried as an ADULT  in some cases so why not let us get a tattoo.

Kids under the age of 18 are very vulnerable, and naive. I think that 18 is a very good age, and with a parents consent, under 18 is fine too. What are 14 year old girls into besides butterflies, and hearts...? Thats what they will want tattooed on them and by the time they are 23 they would have regreted it. WAIT UNTIL YOU ARE 18, ITS MORE EXCITING, AND SAFE!

I am 17 and i already have 5 tattoos, like everyone says they express who you are, what you resemble and what you want to represent for yourself or anyone else. It's not up to someone else to decide what you do with your body because down the road you're going to have to make your own decision anyways. Tattoos are fun, they look good, and to the customer, is an amazing work of art.

I've done extensive research on tattoos.   im 19 years old and im getting my first peice as soon as i can afford it, i designed it myself.   my stance on the issue is that you should wait until you're 18.   i know that if i would have gotten the tattoo that i THOUGHT i wanted when i was 16, i woulda been humiliated.  things like favorite bands, sports teams, favorite famous people... they change.  until you're an adult and you can pay for your own ink and you can make your own choices, you should stay away.   its a maturity thing.

If a TEENAGER wants a tattoo you have to respect them, but as a teenager myself i must say don't get a tattoo that has a superficial meaning. I want a tattoo on my shoulder blade of three hearts. These were on my grandmother's GRAVE! So i'm getting a memorial tattoo. don't get some stupid tattoo like a guy/girls name (unless they are dead) because you might end up hating this person. I don't want to wait till I'm 18 to get my tats but i don't really have a choice because I want to get them done right because its more satisfying. I know, i pierced my own lip instead of waiting, and now i kinda wish i didn't... i got grounded for 5 months!! And it got all infected, so go to a good place that is clean *this means that they probably won't do it if your under age* but its more satisfying. They should just change the law to letting people 16+ get tats. For people under 15, if your getting a tat you are too young!!!

I think that kids need to educate themselves on the tattoo process, and then they will understand WHY it's not ok for someone under the age of 18 (oregon) to get a tattoo.  Most people do not know anything about tattoos, they just decide to get one and go to the closest cheapest place they can find.  This is the wrong way to go about it.  

Tattoo artists need to follow the law, and many protocols, in order to keep thier liscence to tattoo.  This ensures that they know how to safely give someone a quality tattoo.  

The people that DON'T follow the laws and will tattoo someone at any age just because the kid wants to express themselves, are called "scratchers", and you don't want a tat by one of them!  

If you let someone like that do a tat on you, the BEST thing that will happen is you will end up with a stupid looking crappy tattoo, and the worst thing is you could end up with AIDS, Hepatitis, or something else.

My sister went to a "scratcher" (and he had a legal tattoo parlor, btw) and she luckily avoided getting a disease, however she is now very embarrassed by her crappy tattoo.  The scratcher ALSO had her take her shirt and bra off, and wrap a towel around her, which he kept trying to take off while tattooing her.  She was also drunk (and high) at the time.    

Educate yourself.  

If you don't know these things, you should NOT get a tattoo;
1.  What an autoclave is and what it's used for.
2. what spore testing is and whether they should be negative or positive.
3. what cross-contamination is and how to avoid it.
4.  why your artist needs to use disposable needles, ink cups, and bag the cord on the tat gun.
5. why the laws state that (in most states) you need to be 18 to get a tattoo.  There are good reasons for this.
6.  Tattoos ARE permanent.  There's no such thing as a "temporary tattoo", a "1 year tattoo" or "5 year tattoo", etc.  
7.  Tattoos can SOMETIMES be removed, but you will almost always end up with either scarring, or a blurry ink spot that looks somewhat like a bruise.  
8.  Trying to remove a tattoo hurts WAY worse than getting one, and is extremely expensive and takes many appointments. you won't be able to afford it unless your parents have a lot of money.
9. How deep should the needle go.
10. What kind of ink is best/safest.  Did you know that the FDA does not approve tattoo ink and sometimes it can contain harmful metals?  
11.  Tattoos can make it more difficult to diagnose certain conditions such as skin cancer before it's too late.  
12.  If you have many tattoos, the ink collects in your lymph nodes, making it difficult to tell if cancer has spread to them, and to the rest of your body.  
13.  Some tattoo inks are not safe and can cause auto-immune disorders.
14. why tattoo artists should not tattoo anyone who is drunk, high or low.
15. Why you need to eat a meal 30 minutes to an hour before getting a tattoo or a piercing.  
16. proper aftercare.
17. How you grow and how your skin will change or stretch.  
18. the healing process.
and so much more!  

Going to an unethical person who will tattoo anyone at any age guarantees you will have a problem.  If you're lucky, it will just be a crappy tattoo.  

If you can't understand the "big words" in this statement, or still disagree with my opinion or can't understand it, then you shoud definately NOT get a tattoo.  

I am not trying to be mean, just educate people so they will not make a mistake they will regret later in life.  

If you want to express yourself, this can also be done by experimenting with different hairstyles, clothing, etc.  Tattoos are not the only way to show who you are and what you believe in.  If you still want one, fine, but wait until you are legal age, and put a LOT of thought into it, make sure it's something you will still like when you are an adult.  

*peace*

i definitely think that the ink age should be 17, and piercing age 16. all the 14 year olds in my school pierce themselves anyways, i did it when i was 15, its dangerous and unsanitary, if someone wants a piercing at least let them get it the safe and clean way. and as for tattoo's.. people can easily find someone to do it for them in private if their under 18, again its dangerous but people are still gonna do it, they should just let anyone under 18 do what they want to there body with a few restrictions until they turn 18.

AND LATER IN LIFE THERE GOING TO REGRET GETTING IT AND THAT WAS BECAUSE THEY WERE TO YOUNG TO GET IT. I'M 14 AND THINK TATTOOS ARE VERY DANGERS PEOPLE DONT KNOW HOW LUCKY THEY ARE.*  oh stop being a little prick.  Tattoo's are perfectly fine for anyone.  I'm 15, and have been wanting one since I was 4 when I noticed my mom's.  Most states say 18, but should only require a parent present when the tattoo is recieved and worked on, untill 18.  I mean c'mon, You graduate at 18, and drop out at 16, you drive at 16, you go to war to die, and carry weapons at 18, drink at 21, so, I think you should be able to put whatever permanant drawings and holes in your body as you want.  people who put "I love" so-and-so can just get another straight lines of an X over the names.  or pay $300 bucks to get one removed with lasers in a center.  I need to wait till im 18 with my mum cuz she is also a little prick, but with my blod father, he'd let me get one too, I even ran the idea by him, and he said awesome, and to go with what I dream of.  so in result, Tattoo should = -18 w/parent.

I think it should be allowed to anyone who has a doctor's note saying they're done growing, then that would hopefully insure maturity as well as the fact that skin won't stretch too much more (at least from growing in height, who knows if that person becomes fat...)

i think you should be able to get a tatoo under the age of 18 without a parents consent.Sometimes you just have to learn from your mistakes but i think you should be the age of 13 or 14 at the earliest because of your skin stretching

Hello everyone,

Everyone that's saying "YO IM OLD ENOUGH IM 13,14,15, etc. I CAN GET A TAT, ITS A WAY OF EXPRESSION" Your mind isn't developed enough to comprehend the consequences, good or bad, and if you type in all caps and can't spell or write like a normal human being, you deserve to be killed =]

I think minors should be able to get a tattoo with parental consent. I am a minor and all i want is a little heart on my metatarsal. but i can't. I think if a minor has a parent with them, they should be able to get a tattoo. a friend of mine who is 20 right now got a tattoo when she was 12, because her mom was dieing of cancer. so i think minors should be able to get  tattoos with they're parents
