Actually that isn't true. With parental consent, 16 and up. And depending on the region of Texas, 17 without parental consent. But mostly 18 with out parental consent. Try south Dallas for 17 year old places.

Acording to every website I saw you must be 18 in Texas to ger a tattoo, and according to American Illustrators Tattoos, you are not allowed before you are 18, even with your parents permission, to get a tattoo.
