Community leaders in Webster Massachusetts is allowing teens aged 14 to get tattoos. Many parents are outraged by this. The Webster Board of Health passed a new regulation allowing young teens ages 14 to 17 to get tattoos at shops that are licensed if they get parental approval. Town officials are trying to keep teenagers away from unlicensed tattoo parlors who work out of their homes.
I think that this is a topic that many people don’t bring up often. I heard about it by listening to sports radio this morning. The host was giving his top two stories to end his show with.
I don’t think any state should pass any legislation to allow young teens to get a tattoo. Parents of teens ages 14 will not want their children to get a tattoo. Getting a tattoo at 14 is too young. I wonder if this kind of legislation will make its way to other states such as California or New York.
