Chinese authorities on Monday (June 6th) banned tattoos for minors due to new rules enacted by China’s State Council, the Global Times reported. Under the new rules, companies, organizations or individuals are not allowed to provide tattoo services to minors. They also cannot coerce or induce minors to get tattoos.
The China-based media report further adds that tattoo service providers must post prominent statements in their stores that they cannot provide services to minors. They are supposed to ask for ID if they doubt the age of customers.

The rule also states that advertisements, books, journals or digital publications must not include any content that could, in some way, encourage minors to get tattoos.
Parents and guardians have also been advised to discourage their children from getting tattoos.
The report adds that government agencies are required to support the new regulations.

Earlier in March, Shanghai banned minors from getting tattoos legally, without parental approval.
