In the News: Teen Gets Staph Infection from Illegal Ink; Tattooer Charged

When an Illinois teen went to the hospital with a staph infection from an illegally received tattoo, his parents – who were previously unaware of and had never consented to the tattoo – filed charges against the tattooer, 18 year-old Michael Whitlock. The age of consent for a tattoo in Illinois is 18, lowered from 21 a few years ago.

Unfortunately, a lot of teens who get tattoos and piercings without their parent’s knowledge or consent will also keep quiet even when they see it becoming infected. That can be a fatal error, so if you’re one of those teens keeping an infected tattoo or piercing hidden, please tell someone! If you really don’t think your parents will understand, talk to your school nurse or another trusted adult.
