Many people are getting tattoos but you must still be an adult to get one. That’s because minors can easily make rash decisions that will affect them for the rest of their lives.

That’s why when a woman had her cat tattooed, the Internet exploded in a frenzy about how such involuntary tattooing amounts to torture. The woman claims that the tattooing was done under the supervision of a veterinarian who assured her the tattoo wasn’t torture.

Whatever the case, tattooing your cat probably isn’t a good idea unless your cat explicitly consents to it. If you like tattoos so much, feel free to get them put on your own body at any time.
