    Not sure on this one but it might have to be 18. Could be worth looking on the gov website for tattoo apprenticeships and giving one of them a call to find out?

    Most places won't let you tattoo someone else without having a tattoo yourself.

    As you have to be 18 by law in the UK to get tattooed, I think you'd struggle to find somewhere that would take you on.

    Not true. You can be 16, with parental permission.

    no, you HAVE to be 18 other wise it can be classed as assult and no reputable tattooist will tattoo ANYONE under the age of 18

    a guy locally got arrested and convicted of this recently

    Read the law, that's a misconception. The only way to get tattooed under 18 is for medical reasons by a doctor.
