Rejected petition It should be legal for 16-17 year olds to get a tattoo with parental consent!!!!

Tattoos are art.

More details

It was once legal to get a tattoo with parental consent but then the law changed. why did it change?
We can’t drive legally until we are 17 and we can’t get a tattoo until we are 18... But surely get a tattoo is less dangerous than driving so why can’t we get them earlier?
It is my body! I have had control of what I look like since I came out the womb! Why is that different now? How can there be someone to say what I should or shouldn’t wear on my body?!
