If I plan on selling. I'll tattoo them at about 8 weeks old or around weaning time. If I plan on keeping them...sometimes i'll do it at weaning or wait awhile. I like to try and get it done by the time they're yearlings if they're keeper animals.

I'm going to be tattooing my kids by the time they are 7-9 weeks old depending on the kid.

We tattoo our kids when they are a week to two weeks old. They are much easier to hold when they are younger :P
