I know that people can parent their kids the way they want, okay but seriously I sometimes wonder about a lapse in judgement.  Especially the whole, "I'm trying to be my kids friend rather than parent them because I don't want them to hate me" thing...

Okay so, my SIL is 16, will be 17 in a few weeks.  My MIL is taking her to get a tattoo.  WTH did I just miss?  I didn't even know it was legal to do!  Permission or not I thought you had to be 18...Obviously not.

I am all for tattoos, I have 5.  With that being said I would NEVER take my under age child to get a tattoo.  Why not tell her to think on it and take her for her 18th birthday when she can get it without permission? Maybe it's just me but I think it's insane.

LOL you didn't know it was legal for a parent to sign & give permission for a 16/17yr old to get a tattoo?

Anyway, yes I probably would at the age of 16/17.  There would be stipulations.

They would have to think about it long & hard as a tattoo is suppose to be personal & it would have to be somewhere that it would remain covered up.

I have no issues w/tats, I have a few myself & got my first at 17.

I voted, "Yes."

I'm a conservative Republican Christian SAHM. Yeah, I'd let him! It would have to be something small, discreet, and respectful.
