Hello, there is no legal age to perform tattoos. However, tattooing is a form of work, so the respective legal labour regulations and the prohibition of child labour apply. If you want to have a tattoo yourself and you are a minor, you definitely need the consent of your legal guardians.

We recommend that you learn tattooing from a professional tattoo artist and that you only work under the strict guidance of a professional tattoo artist in the beginning. Check out our Advice Hub articles for beginners here: https://www.barberdts.com/uk/advice-hub/tattoo-apprentice/
