A parent’s worst nightmare could be when they child tells them that they want a tattoo. Of course you child could be ten years old and my only be saying that because an athlete they look up to has tattoos. Or because they are fascinated with those ever so popular temporary tattoos that every kid wants. The first thing to do is not to panic. They have got a good eight years before they are legally old enough to get a tattoo. Chances are they may grow out of it and it they don’t, do fret. Honestly, if you child wants a tattoo and they are of legal age they will get one no matter what you say because legally they can get one. However, you can help educated your child on tattoos and tattooing. After all you are the parent and it is your job to educate and install correct information in your children brain.
Make sure you inform them on the seriousness of getting a tattoo and that tattoos are forever. Make sure they realize they can not wake up one morning and decide they don’t want it anymore, it is there to stay. To help ensure that your child does not make a horrible tattoo mistake help them decide on a design. By taking an active role in the decision making process when your child wants to get a tattoo you can help ensure they will not regret it later on in life. After all it is better to be involved in this life changing experience than to have them come home with some ridiculous tattoo design that they are sure to regret in a year or so.
