How to convince my parents to let me get a tattoo?
ANSWER #10 of 19

I ve been asking for 4 years and my parents still say NO! I made them a slide show with about 100 facts and quotes. saying that ALL im asking for is their consent. Im paying for it all by myself I just want them to say yes everyone has told me to just do it but I dont want to. I'm 15 and they say I should wait until I'm 18!! I proved that its not a new craze its been around since Egyptian times but they still won't budge and all they say when I ask why they dont want me to get is "I dont like it!" Anyone have ANY idea what I can do? I've tried not talking to them. Being incredibly good and cleaning all the time. Not talking about it for ages so they forget! Im an A* student as well! I've never come home drunk! I feel like I'm being punished for nothing! I only have my caterlidge done.

ANSWER #11 of 19

you should wait till your 16.
thats the legal age to go into a peircing shop and get it done without your parents consent.
also your body is still growing.
the younger you get it done, the more it will grow out as you age a few years.
so by the time your like 16 itll be half way out because your body grew.
so wait a bit more

ANSWER #12 of 19

well I got my cartalige pierced last friday and my mum and dad let me, im also getting my tragus pierced in the future weeks (fingers crossed), but I need to persuade my dad, I think you should perhaps just be like to be honest it is my body! That might not work though if you have strict parents!!!
Just don't keep on about it as that will really wind them up and they will just keep saying no! Also you could try saying you will do well in school and you will pay for it yourself! Hope this helps you, and hope you get what you want :) x
