NYC, 14 May- 2014, Eliza Thompson: Kylie Jenner can now add “unlicensed tattoo artist” to her resume. According to TMZ, the littlest Kardashian tattooed her friend Miles Richie (son of Lionel and brother of Nicole) with her initials over the weekend. Professional tattoo artist John Petro was giving Miles a legitimate tattoo at a Hollywood recording studio when Kylie asked if she could try it out. You know, like trying on your friend’s new shoes or testing out a new flavor of ice cream. Just giving it a go, for funsies.
Kylie Jenner Tattooed Her Friend and It Was Maybe Not Legal
The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health has rules for tattooing, though, and surprise! They include being at least 18 years old and having a tattoo license, two requirements which 16-year-old Kylie does not meet. While this makes this whole scenario very confusing on the legality front (the video makes it seem like Kylie did have a little help from Petro while she worked on Miles), what’s more baffling is that Miles allowed Kylie to tattoo him. I love my friends, but if any of them ever tried to come at me with a tattoo needle I would have no qualms about murdering them in cold blood. Just putting that out there, in case anybody has any ideas.
