I’m 16 years old. And I really want to get a tattoo, but my parents won’t let me. It isn’t even something prominent! Just a word on my finger. But no. They’re acting all parent-y and lecturing me about it. I understand that they don’t want me to get something I would regret later, but I’m really sure about this. How do I convince them? :/
Jesus fuck, will whiny little cunts like you never learn? I’m not on your side.
You’re sixteen. I know you don’t look it, and I know you don’t feel it, but you’re still a fucking child. There is no convincing your parents. They’re right. You’re wrong. End of story.
If you want respect from people like me, you have got to quit the whining. That means either one of two things. Shut the fuck up and obey your parents, or engage in legitimate teenage rebellion.
I’d prefer it if you’d listen to your folks on this one, but maybe your balls are brass, so fair warning. If you get the tattoo without parental consent you will suffer consequences. Be prepared, and take it like an adult.
Also fair warning. Whatever this word is you want forever emblazoned on your finger at sixteen, I promise, you will eventually regret it, because the whole idea is stupid and juvenile.
