Got a high-functioning autistic nephew who will
turn 18 soon, he's determined to get a tattoo
I've told him it could be harder for him to get
a job with one, that he changes his mind so
often he'll probably regret it almost as soon as
he gets it, nothing works, any suggestions
motherofrob responded:
What does he want to get and where? Unfortunately he will soon be able to go on his own and do it. Maybe you want to do some research and go with him. Tatoos are not my thing either but I would rather him be safe with where he goes.
aspieaunt replied to motherofrob's response:
He changes his mind all the the time about how many and
the location of them. Right at this moment he wants this
nasty demon-looking thing all over his hand.
Next time I see him, I'm going to try suggesting a temporary
tattoos, that way if he doesn't like it or changes his mind, he's
not stuck with it.
motherofrob replied to aspieaunt's response:
Sounds like a good idea.

Hi Aspieaunt,

As Jimmy Buffet sings, and as I have explained to young ones contemplating tattoos -

This will be a permanent reminder of a temporary feeling.

You may also ask him to research how involved and how much it costs to have a tattoo removed.

And, yes, employers now have a large pool to choose from. Those who "present" well may have a better chance getting employed.

With all this said, I am not at all against adults getting tattoos. I have seen too many "kids" get them without thinking about consequences.

Hope this is helpful,
