That's a good question! Most posts ask about the legal drinking age. Unfortunately I have no answer for you as I too do not know. What I do know is that once you get a tatoo it will be with you for a long, long time. And what once might have been a mighty eagle would eventually be a vulture or sparrow in your old age.

Just my unappreciated 2 cents.

Let's just go limin'.

Sun and saltwater are the 2 worst things for the healing process of a tattoo. If your coming on vacation and get a tattoo, plan on sitting in the shade and not going in the water. Kinda defeats the purpose of coming here IMO.

That's a good point. I don't know if you plan on going anytime soon, but summer is the not an ideal time to get a tattoo. You can't so swimming for atleast 2 weeks or go in the sun for 2 weeks. I got one in the summer a few years ago and was mad at myself. lol

when I got my first tattoo, I was told by the artist to keep it away from chlorine water and sunlight for 6-8 weeks. Luckily, I had it done in November in Connecticut, so that wasn't too hard to deal with.
