Tattooing anyone under 18 years of age is a criminal offence and should be reported to the police for action.
If you are not happy with the quality of work received from a registered practitioner then you should first contact the business to discuss this with them. You are advised to do this in writing. If this doesn't resolve the problem you can contact Citizens Advice who will be able to give you advice.
