I say it's all Britney's fault
Being a teenager/ young adult myself, I can understand both the point of views of the parents and the teens. However, like Average Jane said, for tats, where I'm from, you need permission. The weird thing is some parents are a-ok with that. Hair colour, piercings, makeup, underwear, all of that is not really permanent. A tattoo, on the other side, is. Something to think about.
