Displaying results for "under age"
What is your opinion on people getting tattoos at a very young age these days?
I really have no place telling anyone what to do with their bodies, including 16 year olds. I’m trying to focus on a formal art critique with this blog, and I know that if I’d gotten the tattoos I’d wanted in high school I would have liked them.
But this is a really, really good question. The big problem is that most of these kids don’t get their parents permission and end up going to talentless hacks.
Enter the kitchen wizard. Someone who is tattooing out of their house (usually their kitchen) with no formal training and a usually unsafe environment. This is the sort of crap you will end up with:
Seriously? This is what most of these kids end up with. And it sucks, because the kids are excited about tattoos and are getting them in visible places. (a) If they get serious about tattooing they’ll have to cover them up eventually, and (b) if they decide they don’t want to be tattooed, they have to get them lazered off.

The difference between a free, cheap, or illegal tattoo and a professional one is everything. And I know I have tons of followers under 18. Please, please wait until you’re of age. Take your time researching your artists and get it on your birthday if you want.
Make sure that it’s not only something that you’ll want for the rest of your life (which is what everyone is always telling you anyway) but that it’s a quality piece of work you can be proud of.
