How Young Is Too Young for Makeup Tattoos?

14 year old Sophie Watson of Spennymoore, Durham, England (pictured), has tattoos. Not just the “I was rebellious and got this done on spring break at Myrtle Beach”-esque tattoos, though. She has lipliner, eyeliner, and eyebrows all tattooed on. Why? To better help her with her beauty pageant career, of course. Though it’s illegal in the UK to tattoo anyone under the age of 18, Sophie’s makeup tats technically don’t qualify because they are considered a cosmetic procedure and will fade in a few years. Sophie’s mom, a beauty therapist (side note: what the hell is that?), thinks her daughter is gorgeous and doesn’t get what all the fuss is about. Oh, and Sophie’s next procedure? Getting her freckles lasered off.
