why would he not do it? it's his job. i got one when i was 18.

In my opinion 18 is too young. Especially when it comes to "public" skin. Of course there are always exceptions but by in large I don't think most 18 year olds have the perspective to make a good choice when it comes to something as permanant as a tattoo. I've known a reasonable number of tattoo artists and I'd say probably half would turn away a customer that was wanting something above the collar or on the back of their hand on their 18th and I'm curious as to which side rhino comes down on.

I have none but I would get one if there was something I wanted for the rest of my life... don't have anything yet.

Any parent that agrees to a tattoo for an underage kid is an idiot.

hmmm... admirable i guess. never known one who felt that way. definitely agree about 18 year olds being morons tho.

I teach high school and I have more than one freshman and sophomore with tatoos on their neck or face.

I get one every year for my birthday...got a portrait of Edgar Allan Poe last year and William Shakespeare last week. I have forearm tattoos and see no problem with visible tattoos on adults. If a young man or woman can make the decision to join the army and defend the country, then they most definitely should be able to put ink over their arse or anywhere else they feel like...

IMO, those gals are sexy despite the tatoos, not because of them. :)

This. I always felt if 18 is old enough to die for your country, it's old enough to do pretty much anything

Who cares, it's their body and they're the one that has to live with it. At least they got it young enough where they'll get to enjoy it long enough before their skin starts to sag.

I dont tattoo neck or hands on anyone who isnt heavily tattooed already. i want a tattoo to be something you enjoy for the rest of your life not something that causes you a problem.
