You shouldn't do it by yourself, that's for sure.

Just ask your parents, even try to appeal them. (Like I'm 13 and I convinced them them to let me have a lip piercing at 15 1/2)

You need a guardian/ parent permission, and they will do it if you get to the right place.

My friend is 14, and she has 5 different tattoos of anime symbols- with her parent's permission


ANSWER #2 of 16

As predicted, no matter what advice we give.. you say you're going to do it anyway.

Let me just give you a few last words about it, alright? As an artist, I really appreciate tattoos. I love them. I don't think they're gross, or wrong, whatever. I think that with some tasteful decisions, they can be really great for a lot of people. My appointment for mine is in less than a month. But let me tell you... DO NOT do it yourself. One of my best guy friends tried the "making the gun yourself" or "do it yourself" thing and he regrets it more than anything. He's even an aspiring tat artist and already knows a lot. However, the tattoo he tried to do looks absolutely terrible now, and it's only been 3 years since he did it.

Please, don't make a decision you WILL regret. I guaranteee you, if you wait.. a few years from now you'll look back and laugh your a-s-s off at yourself. Even if you found a way to get a professional to do it, you'll still regret it. You DON'T want a guy who is "learning to do tats" to give you one. Ugh, I wish I could find the right words to convince you not to do it. Oh well.

ANSWER #4 of 16

your only in your first year of being a teenager, it doesnt seem to matter what people say on this you seem pretty set but look how many people think its a bad idea. im 23 so I have ten years on you , got my first tattoo at 18 which was a peice on my back that is the length of my spine, was very costy but worth it and im pleased I waited untill I was legal and sure- because the poeple inking you at 13 will most likely take the mickey out of you and not do the best job they can if they are that poor an artis to break the law
you will in a few years be very annoyed because youl regret not taking advice.
trust me, im heavily tattood (in nice places and in an artistic way, not barb wire like pamela enderson)

Tattoo's under the age of 16?

ANSWER #7 of 16

You're 13. First of all, it's illegal and NO you can't get it done, even with parent's consent. That's a misdemeanor, and any LEGIT tattoo shop won't dare tattoo someone under 18. Think about it... you have so much growing to do. That bike chain is going to look awful by the time you're grown up. Wait a few more years.

ANSWER #16 of 16

In order to get a tattoo you have to be 18 years old or have your parents' permission. They need to go with you to the tattoo parlor to sign permission forms.

Any place that does it without your parents' permission can get in huge trouble and be fined a large amount of money. They won't want to risk it.
