I'm fifteen and want a tattoo sooooooo bad. What do you think about teenagers getting tattoos? My mum thinks its stupid and said tattoos are horrible anyway.
You're not going to want to hear this, but i do agree with the age restrictions for tattoos.
Although I'm sure there are tons of people who would never regret the tattoo that they got done when they were younger than the legal age, there are some that do regret it.
Tattoos aren't something that needs to be rushed, I waited 2 years to get mine done, and it was worth the wait. I took the time to think things through, and my ideas of design and placement changed over the course of the 2 years. Take your time and think it through.
Your mum is entitled to her opinions. But obviously i don't think they're stupid or horrible 😉
