Would you allow your 16 year old to get a tattoo?

So a few days ago i went to visit my family and bring ds over so he could see my parents and 2 younger siblings. As I was conversating with my mother she tells me that she took my sister a few days before to get her tattoo. My first reaction was like why the hell would you do that? So i went on to ask her nicely why and my mom's reply was i rather see what she is doing then her go do it herself. I just shake my head and changed the subject. My dad still doesnt know about the tattoo and i see a huge fight in the works. Hell when i got my tattoo when i was 19 he was so upset and disgusted that he lecture me for almost a month.

So would you let your child get a tattoo at 16? And if your other spouse you knew wouldnt aprove would you still go do it?

No, I don't believe I would. However, I'd rather take her somewhere I trust, than have her go behind my back to some nasty hole in the wall shop, like I did at 16.

No. He can get one at 18 like his father and I did.

No not at 16. When she becomes an adult and doesn't need my permission she can do what she pleases.

Nope, and I love tats and have a lot of ink. I tell my daughter that when she turns 18, I will make her an appointment with my guy, hell, Ill even pay for it, but not until then.

In my state it is illegal for someone under the age of 18 to receive a tattoo, regardless of parental permission.

Not at all.  Not only would I not get a 16 year old a tattoo, I definitely wouldn't go behind my husband's back to do it.

 Nope. and if they did, while it was still fresh i'd pour rubbing alcohol all over it. it'll burn like a mother f-er and it'll dilute the ink.
