Hi there. As an individual who never thought would ever get or even consider getting tattoos, It is safe to say that as long as you have a solid/genuine reason for getting one then it is absolutely fine. Usually I would list a few points, But I'd rather leave that for you to figure out on your own. Literally just brainstorm pros & cons and ask yourself if it's more beneficial than useful to you and go from there. What side are you on? Are you for minors being able to get tattoos?

Good luck.

Minors should not be allowed to get a tattoo without permission for a variety of reasons:

1. Maturity
2. Disobedience
3. Financial
4. Regret -> further complications = depression, Insecurities about self-image

All in all, Take a look around and you'll understand better my point. Adults get tattoos and regret it afterwards and if not immediately, Eventually. . . Therefore, Let alone kids who aren't able to make basic life decisions.
It all starts with an idea, A group of people who do it for culture/spiritual reasons and then branches off into society. . . Then, People adopt it for their own reasons such as to fit in, To express character, Gang affiliation, And the list goes on. Therefore, It's important to be original and have reason to back up everything that you do. However, I do also believe that regardless of age, As long as you're able to articulate and reason with your parents or whomever then it is totally okay to get a tattoo.
