U have to be 16 years old with parents permission to get a tattoo in a tattoo shop. If your able to get a tattoo before 16, You didn't get it in a tattoo shop!

You need to be at least 18 or over. Most parents might not agree with the idea of a teenager getting a tattoo because of the risks involved like skin cancer. In case you want to remove it, laser surgery is required, which is said to be very painful and expensive.

well i dont think your parents are going to let you get a tattoo but once your 18 you are in charge of yourself so you can get one.

with your parents permission its any time "parents concern" but if you are 18 you are eligible anyhow.. yes it may causes certain pain and after effects to the skin and you may have skin cancer, and ... so much other problems...

i got a tattoo at age 15. It was in a tattoo shop. But to be under age 16 it has to be in memory of someone.
