  • In most places, you have to be at least 18 years of age to get a tattoo.  Other tattoo parlors and/or artists though tend to allow even minors to get one.  In any case, you might want to wait just to be sure.  There is a reason for this restriction and it is for purposes of keeping minors safe.
