Why is it illegal to get a tattoo if you're under 18?

Answer #1

risk factors, dirty needles etc.

Answer #2

Those laws are set by the states and actually vary. Some states will allow tattoos under 18 with parental consent, while others prohibit it entirely.

The reason for this is that, when you get a tattoo, you have to enter into a legal contract, and since certain procedures require you to be an adult to enter into said contract, you need to be 18 to get that tattoo.

Answer #3

Oh I see, thanks
