Tattoo artists have called for the age limit for face tattoos to be raised to 21.

At the moment, people can get any tattoo from the age of 18, but the British Tattoo Artist Federation wants the law to be changed.

They are worried that facial inkings can affect people's job prospects, so people should not be able to get them until they are more mature.
