Are you 16-18 years old, or booking an appointment for someone 16-18 years old? We take tattooing and piercing minors very seriously! Please see all the forms and information that you will need below before booking your appointment.
Forms and Laws
Step One: Consultation
Having a consultation with your tattoo artist or piercer is required if you are 16-18 years old. We require that your legal guardian is present at the time of consultation, and prefer that you consult in person but zoom consults are acceptable. You cannot consult by phone or email only for a minor to get tattooed or pierced at Golden Tarot Ink Club. To get this started, please find your favorite artist on our website and book a free consult with them!
Not all of our tattoo artists will tattoo a minor age 16-18. Here is a list of the tattoo artists that are available for minors:
Step 2: Notarized Form
A legal guardian must fill out a notarized form, bring 2 valid ID's (one for the minor and one for guardian, and be present at the appointment at all times:
Please print and bring a notarized form on the day of your appointment, and you must bring 2 valid ID's. One ID belonging to the minor age 16-18 and one ID belonging to the legal guardian.
You can get your form notarized by your bank or a local notary, but we do not notarize these at the tattoo shop. If you come to a scheduled appointment without the notarized form you will lose your appointment and deposit for that appointment.
