  • U need to be 18, but if ur parents dont mind u getting a tattoo then they will have to sign. But u are 13, some people make stupid tattoo. A guy had tattoo in rare parts of his body and colorful, black and white and tbh he looked weird.

    Just give yourself some time, maybe when u are in hs if ur parents agree of u getting a tattoo, and really decode on what u want and not regret later.

  • legally without parental control it would be 18 in the USA. with parental concern some states allow 16 year olds to get them. that's not saying that if you know someone who. dose tattooing that they could do it when your younger. I have tattoos. and the only thing I would tell anyone who is planning on getting any is. just remember it's going to be with you for the rest of your life

  • 17-18. If you do it younger, there's a chance you're still growing, which means your skin is still stretching to fit your body. If you get a tattoo before your body is done growing/changing, the tattoo will also stretch and become distorted

  • I was 15 when I got my first one. Give it some time and really think about it because I don't really regret getting it but I definitely regret what it is and who did it

  • I think it's when you reach high school. My girlfriend told me that she got her first tattoo when she was 16.

  • If your skin looks like it has given out, you're ready. Just Kidding. It's up to you but I suggest 18 or 21, be sober and make sure you shop around for the parlor.

  • 18-21 depending. But don't do it until you're 23 or so and have some taste. Teenagers just get the worst, fuckiest, stupid tattoos.

    • I'm getting a flower

    • Show All
    • I really want a flower though :(

    • Then pull together all sorts of artwork of flowers. Look at everything from cutesy, cartoony to elegant and fine art like. Work on this for several years, teach yourself to draw if you can, and design the most exceptional flower you can imagine. Then have a tattoo artist help you adapt it to tattoo style and perfect it. THEN get it. When you are 23. Make it the most excellent thing anyone has ever seen.
