Our expert says:
whilst this is something you really want you have to ask yourself whether it will be worth the hassle of going against your parents wishes. Depending on your age you will also require a letter of consent from your parentsbefore they will go ahead and do the tattoo. Some places insist on the parent being there in person to sign the form.
If its something you really want it may be worth trying to speak to your mum about it again to see if things can be 're-negotiated'
Your mum will find out eventually, and if you have any complications afterwards such as an infection then its better for you that your parents are aware.
Ultimately you have to make this decision, but think carefully first - once you have a tattoo its there for life. Tattoo removals often leave scarring.
