Tattoo Laws & Regulations

Each state has their own tattoo laws. Check them all here

There are no federal statutes regarding tattoos and tattoo shops, but every state has their own rules and regulations when it comes to tattoos and tattooing. Some states will not allow anyone under the age of 18 to be tattooed regardless of circumstance. Certain states allow under 18 to be with a parent’s or guardian’s written approval and some of them require it to be notarized.  Use our Best Tattoo For You Tattoo Laws Tool to learn about your states laws and rules.
