It is illegal to tattoo young people under the age of 18 under UK law.

Even with parental consent, in the UK is is illegal for anyone to have a tattoo under 18.

Local authorities keep a register of all tattooists and issue registration certificates, the certificate mus be on display in their parlor or studio.

Illegal tattooing means either tattooing a young person who is under the age of 18 or tattooing carried out by an unregistered tattooist.

If a tattooist does tattoo a young person, the tattooist will be prosecuted and fined.

The age restriction is set out by the tattooing of minors act 1969 which says it is illegal to tattoo a young person under 18 years of age.

The liability however is on the tattoo artists and new guideline say that tattoo artists must look for proof of age and make a record of it before inking.

This is the law all over the UK.

Across in the Republic Of Ireland however, there is no legislative regulation over tattooing so there is no legal minimum age at which one can get a tattoo.

That said, tattoo parlours can impose their own age restriction.

In Austria, Croatia, Germany, Italy, Lithuania, Romania and Spain you can get a tattoo at 16 but you must have parental consent.

Other places in Europe such as Belgium, Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Luxembourg, Poland, Slovakia, Slovenia and Sweden have no legislative age restrictions on tattooing.

In France the age minimum is 10 years old.

In Denmark, it is illegal to tattoo someone on the head, neck or hand.

In the US, the age restrictions for tattooing vary state by state.

You should only get a tattoo if you really want one. A tattoo is permanent so it is on your body forever unless you get removal treatments.

Those processes can be extremely painful.
