Town Lowers Legal Tattoo Age to 14
WEBSTER, Mass. — Lawmakers in one Massachusetts town have decided to lower the age at which teenagers can get tattoos.
According to the Worcester Telegram & Gazette, the Board of Health in Webster, Mass., voted 2-1 to adjust its tattoo regulation. As a result, the legal tattoo age limit drops from 18 to 14.
Still, kids under the age of 18 will need written consent from a parent or guardian. Also, that parental figure must accompany the teen to a licensed parlor.
The Worcester Telegram & Gazette has additional information.
