In Tennessee, is it illegal to go to a tattoo shop to get a tattoo even with parents approval and observation? (for a 16 year old)

Don't comment if your just going to say I'm too young. I have 3 tattoos, but from a friend who did it at my house. With parent permission obviously. But can u go get it professionally done so I can have colored tattoos?

Even with parental consent, the only tattoos that anyone under the age of 18 can get (in the state of TN) are ones to cover-up existing tattoos. Other that that it is illegal for any shop to tattoo anyone who is under the age of 18.

It is not legal in most cases to get a tattoo if you are under 18 even with parental consent in TN. The only exception is if the minor is 16 or older and is covering up another tattoo.
