Tattoos are now commonplace among adolescents and young adults.  How do parents respond when their child wants to get a tattoo?  Are there complications?  Will a tattoo result in stigmatization that limits their future educational and professional opportunities?  Do people with tattoos suffer from discrimination?  How common is it to regret getting a tattoo?  How is a tattoo artist chosen?  What are the chances that Dr. Lena or Dr. Dean already has a tattoo?  We discuss these issues and more in this episode.

This episode written by Dr. Dean Blumberg and Dr. Lena Rothstein.
