You must be at least 18 years of age in order to receive a tattoo or piercing.  However, state law does allow for the tattooing and piercing of minors with parental consent. St Louis County requires that this parental consent be given as a notarized consent form.  Even with notarized parental consent, we cannot tattoo or pierce anyone under the age of 16. The closest notary to the shop is across the street at Commerce Bank.  Their hours are Mon-Thur, 9-5; Fri, 9-6; Sat, 9-12.  Notaries may also be found at most other banks, as well as at many UPS and FedEx stores.  In addition to the notarized parental consent form we will need a government issued photo ID for both parent and child.
