Recently our boiler repairman told us the story of how his son got his tattoo. It was a family holiday in Spain, and on the last evening, a lively crowd had gathered at the hotel bar. Turns out they were admiring the brand new Spanish bull tattooed on his 17 year old sons hide. He laughs now – it’s still there 5 years later.
It is illegal to tattoo young people under the age of 18 under UK law. Even with parental consent, in the UK is is illegal for anyone to have a tattoo under 18. In Spain the regulations are different. But what is the age allowed for laser tattoo removal treatment in the U.K? At LaserYou, we treat adults aged 18 and over. Anyone under 18 requiring treatment will need parental consent. We will not treat anyone under age 16.
So if your child comes back from Magaluf with a tattoo, with your consent, they can have laser tattoo removal. Just ensure the tattoo is at least 12 weeks old as the tattoo must be fully healed before we can treat it.
