My friend has a daughter who turns 18 in a couple of weeks, just graduating high school this month. The DD wants to get a tattoo (tiny & on her foot) however Mom doesn't want her to go out and do this, just because she's 18 and she CAN! She would like her to be more mature to make such decisions, however realizes that she can't stop her. Ideas on discouraging her?

Why discourage her? Its not like she wants something huge or offensive. Tattoos are forever but some people chose to decorate there body this way. I say let her go for it.

I have a tat & I love them on others. I think rather than discouraging her it makes the most sense to encourage if she is going to (& she'll be eighteen & WILL do what she wants) that she should put careful consideration into what she wants to get. I would suggest that it be meaningful & symbolic for her; at her age she may not have anything major to comemorate & maybe she at least wait until something speaks to her.
~I have nothing against purely decorative tats, just a suggestion if she seems to be rushing into it.~
Also, suggest that she research good parlors near her so at least it's a good quality tat & a reputable shop.
