First, this decision is really personal since a tattoo becomes a constant decoration element on the skin of its beholder. Children of sixteen should have learned by this time that every choice has its consequences, and there is direct interdependence between reasons and results. I suppose that no one can decide for a child who soon becomes a grown some basic things: what to wear, whom to communicate, and what to do with a body. Moreover, giving a kid a chance to choose a tattoo a parent gives him/her understanding of personal responsibility for every action. In less than a couple of years, these sixteen-year-olds will enter colleges where they will have to take numerous choices, and this can be a good example of the first serious decision. At such age, people mostly understand their direction in life as they are supposed to choose future profession so getting a tattoo can increase self-confidence. If a child wants a tattoo it will not take him/her much time to find the place where tattooing is done illegally (as most credible places forbid tattoo for children under 16 without parents` consent). So it is better to make sure that tattoo will be a safe procedure. Should 16-year-olds Be Allowed to Get a Tattoo without Parental Consent.
