We wrote in August that the Estonian government will be taking a step forward by making it illegal for tattoo artists to tattoo underage people. You can read about it here.

We have to correct ourselves. We knew that the new bill will come into effect from September 1st 2020. But that has changed, since it took the government a bit more time than expected to perfect the new bill. So the government could make all the necessary steps to make sure the law would actually work in real life, they changed the date when the law would come into effect.

Starting from July 1st 2021 it is illegal to tattoo a minor in Estonia even with a parent’s consent. You can also read the new bill below. The bill is in Estonian only.
