how young is to young or a tattoo

How young is to young. Most people say that you shouldn't get a tattoo tell your 18 period end of story.  I think if its for a good reason and not just a stupid tattoo that they will regret in their future let them get it. If I had a kid I would let them get a tattoo at 15. As long as the tattoo is something they are sure they want and its not a boyfriend/ girlfriends name i see no reason young people shouldn't be able to get a tattoo.

"Will and Jada Pinkett Smith's 11-year-old daughter, Willow, was recently given a tongue-lashing on social media after posting a picture of herself sporting a tongue piercing on Instagram.Though she later revealed that it was in fact a fake, magnetic tongue ring, people were already whipping their opinions back and forth about whether young people are too vulnerable to make permanent (or potentially scarring) decisions about their bodies. The issue: What is classified as "too young"?While the battle over body modification typically occurs between parents and their children, state legislatures have entered the conversation as well.In June, Jerry Garrison, a Florida grandfather, lost custody of his 10-year-old grandson after allowing him to get a tattoo of his initials on his right leg. A "family tradition," according to Garrison.Under Florida law, a person younger than 16 years old cannot be tattooed except "for medical or dental reasons," and anyone age 16 to 18 can be tattooed only with the consent of a parent or guardian."

"Most states allow tattoos and body piercings for children under the age of majority, which is 18 years old in most of the United States, with parental consent. Though, some have tightened restrictions. In Idaho, "No person shall knowingly tattoo, brand or perform body piercing on any minor under the age of fourteen (14) years.". "I don't regret my tattoos. Each one reminds me of where I was at certain stages off my life, and my mindset. It's like keeping a scrapbook, only on my body and not collecting dust on a shelf somewhere taking up space," he says via Facebook."

In my opinion whether you are for tattoo's and piercing or against them its your kids body make them pay for it or not get it then they really have to think about what they want and wont regret it when they are older. You can also teach them some responsibility and patience.If you don't give your kids any freedom they will rebel as teenagers. So let them get their tattoos or piercing while they still have time to enjoy how they look.

  1. This was my first time visiting your blog and I just want to say I love your topic. I am very passionate about tattoos and piercings and believe that it should be up to the individual, not a parent, or friend, or even the social media. If you want to pierce your lip, just as Willow Smith has pretended to do, then that is your decision not anybody else's. Also, i love your background photo, that is definitely a beautiful piece of art.

  2. I as well believe that people should be allowed to get tattoos when they are under the age of 18. I feel that as long as the parent and the kid both agree that the kid is allowed to get it they should be allowed to. I personally would like my child to wait until they are 18, but if other parents want to allow their child to I see no problem with it.

  3. I strongly agree with you. If you're getting a tattoo that means something great to you than why do you need to wait until you're 18? But then again, it's very important as to where you place your tattoo and by the time you're 18 you should be able to realize why that is so important. With getting jobs and having it be somewhere too noticeable.
