How old do I have to be to get a tattoo or piercing?

  It is Arkansas State Law,

effective August 16th, 2013,

that no person shall perform body art

(Tattoos and Piercings)

on a person under 16 years of age.

REGARDLESS of parental consent!!

Those between the ages of 16 and 17 must have:

A parent or legal guardian present

A state issued I.D. for the parent/guardian

A state issued I.D. for the minor


An original copy of the minors birth certificate. It must have the name of the parent that is signing for the minor on the birth certificate.


If you have a legal guardian signing for the minor, you must bring all of the forsaid information, and guardianship papers assigning the person present as the minors guardian, these papers must be court issued and signed by a judge.
