Currently in the Illinois senate: a bill that would ban anyone under 18 from entering a tattoo parlor, unless accompanied by an adult. But don't worry too much about it, kids; the same bill would exempt minors from criminal charges if they tattoo another youth outside of a tattoo shop. So the message appears to be: if you're under 18 and looking for a tattoo, don't go to the professional inkers at Chicago Tattoo and Piercing near Clark and Belmont. Go get your friends to do it!
