Getting a Tattoo is a big decision so make it wisely,” is what Peter J Salzano, a professional tattoo artist, suggests.

Minors are always kept away from tattoos but why? Here is the answer:

  • They are too young to decide what tattoo they want and consider it as a fun activity
  • The reports say that it is very difficult for minors to bear the pain while getting a tattoo done, as it is too soft.
  • The chances of infection are high among kids as they tend to take less precaution because of their carefree nature and another reason is sensitive skin.
  • As per the reports, the majority of the youngsters consider their first tattoo as a mistake and look for modification
  • Other reasons why not to get a tattoo by teens:
  • Safety concerns
  • Potentially Limited Employment Concern
  • Possible Regret over design
  • Teasing by other teens
  • The reaction of the family members/teacher and other concerned members
  • Frequent changing trends that might not suit the child when adult
