How easy is it for a 17 year old to get a tatoo?

I plan on getting a very small 1 some were, are they strict about this?

Do they ask for I.D and stuff like that?

You might have to be 18 to get a tattoo, I'm not sure. Why the hell would you want one though? Just realise in 30 years' time you'll look like an idiot, and that's if your skin hasn't changed shape and it's still recognisable. Think about what 47-year-olds with tattoos look like now... and it's going more out of fashion by the year.

Still, I'm not here to lecture you. :p:

I thought it was 16? But even so, think carefully. I'm 17 and wouldn't get one yet, no way!! I'd almost definitely regret it, I haven't had long enough to think about it.

Any reputable one will ask for ID, but if you want dirty needles and to possibly end up with a big infected mushy scar then go ahead and find a dodgy person to do it. You can't wait a YEAR?

the legal age is 18. if i was you, i would wait a year, and i agree, think very very carefuly about it, and remember that its for life! (wel, you can get them removed but is a VERY painful procedure!)

That's what I thought - but parents never consent to a tattoo at 16. So it's 18. :p:

parent consultant meaning they have to be there or some sort of writing letter?

And not always successful, and can leave scars. And definitely damages your skin. More than the tattoo does.

Not a good reason for a tattoo - I'm thinking you'll regret it pretty soon afterwards.

Wtf?! She's crazy, sorry but she should NOT be asking you to get a tattoo for her. That's bang out of order.

Any decent tattoo parlour will ask for ID.

Also, wtf? You KNOW that it's a bad idea, right?
