Teen Tats and More: What Had You Talking This Week

From acne to teen tattoos to the perfect Jared Leto makeup transformation, you all had lots of great things to say this week. So take a look below to see what your fellow Bella readers opined on in the comments:

Lots of opinions on whether or not teens should get tattoos:

  • "I think that it is a personal choice. As for teenagers getting inked, I think that's for them and their parents to decide." — ssmageditor
  • "People getting and removing tattoos is probably good for the economy, anyway. Smiling." — onlysourcherry
  • Getting a tattoo is a bit like marriage: you can't just go in there thinking, 'Well, if it doesn't work out, I can get a divorce/cosmetic treatment.' Sometimes that's not always the way to go." — studio16

For the rest of the best, just keep reading.

You were very open about your experiences with acne treatments:

  • "[As a teen], my acne pushed me to the point where I couldn't look at myself in the mirror. I literally began to hate my own face. I never thought about suicide because of it, but I can see how less stable people could." – elramos
  • "I never took Accutane, but at 14, my doctor suggested the pill to help with my moderate acne and irregular periods. It helped a lot, and I went through my teen years known as the one with the flawless skin." – natalie love

A makeup artist's drastic transformation into Jared Leto impressed you big time:

  • "It does help that Jared Leto looks like a 12-year-old girl, but yeah, seriously that’s a great transformation." — mcfearless
  • "That was pretty amazing. What great talent! And sans dude-makeup, she is a very, very pretty girl." – florida snow
  • "That's amazing! It's incredible how she can truly create a differently shaped nose, forehead, and cheeks with white makeup and contouring." – miss bree

Tip-free salons: are they a yea or a nay?:

  • "I love the idea. I'd rather know the cost up front, rather than stressing over whether I tipped well or not." — carri
  • "I wish tipping didn't exist for anything. People should be paid fairly up front, be they stylists, waitstaff, etc." — classicaltorture

I have a small tattoo on my shoulder which had done well past my teens. I'm proud of it, it is unique and was designed by someone very special tome so it is also very meaningful. My advice to anyone considering a tattoo would be: 1. Don't rush in to the nearest shop and choose one of the wall or out of a book. 2. Choose where you have it with care considering the following avoid boobs or tummy unless you are sure that childbirth will not happen for you (it will never look the same after pregnancy and you may even have to have a cesarean); consider if there are times when you would want to cover it up and locate it accordingly; avoid any other part of the body that is likely to stretch or go flabby as you get older.

One comment on tattoo's made me think. If marriage was by law, for life, there would be few marriages these days...and no such thing as divorce. I think it would also make people think wisely. It's the same way with tattoo's. Honestly... Kat Von D is young now, but what the hell will she look like at 80? Joan Rivers covered in tattoo's is a lot worse than just Joan with plastic surgery.

On the subject of teens & tats, I believe they should be 18 to get one, that way it's them not their parents. I have tats I got when I was in my late 20's and regret it now.
