ASK JILL: To Tattoo or Not to Tattoo?


My best friend and I have been friends for about 10 years now and at this point we look at each other as sisters. We were thinking that it was about time we do something that will symbolize our friendship and decided on matching tattoos! We are both seventeen and though we only have one more year to go till graduation, we really want them now. There’s only one problem, how do we explain this to our parents?


You and your best friend seem to have a solid bond, which is very difficult today with our fast paced culture. If you both really want this you should just tell your parents the same way you approached me. If worse comes to worse, you have one more year until you are an adult and can make that decision on your own.  Remember it’s a permanent one!
