Why is it 18 to get a tattoo ....because It's The Law

The legal age for getting a tattoo in the UK is 18 years old, as set out in the Tattooing of Minors Act 1969. This law prohibits anyone under the age of 18 from getting a tattoo, even with parental consent. Violations of this law can result in fines and imprisonment.

The law aims to protect young people from the risks associated with tattooing, such as infection, scarring, and allergic reactions. It also recognizes that minors may not have the maturity or understanding to make informed decisions about getting a tattoo.
