It’s a prerequisite that all card-carrying cool teens must assert their cool-teen status with a tattoo or ten. Kylie Jenner knows this better than anyone, which is why she headed to West 4 Tattoo in Manhattan over the weekend to add a fourth to her collection.

The 18-year-old star and her BFF Jordyn Woods opted for mysterious matching “M” finger tats, which some speculate is a tribute to Tyga, whose real name is Michael Ray Stevenson. (But why would Woods want a tribute to her best friend’s boyfriend on her body for life? Asking the important questions here.)

But simply getting a tattoo is not enough, when you’re as cool as Kylie Jenner. One must also give a tattoo, because why the hell not? Tattoo artist JonBoy (a man named JonBoy!), the recipient of said tattoo, was more than happy to oblige, and Kylie documented the process in a series of Snapchats. All very cool and fun, except for one thing: As the NY Daily News pointed out, giving someone a tattoo without a license is a violation of the city’s Department of Health and Hygiene Code, and could get the parlor fined or shut down. Uh oh!

JonBoy told the Daily News that he hasn’t been contacted by the health department since that fateful Snapchat, and insists that the situation isn’t something he takes lightly. Whatever you say, JonBoy, but it’s on you for trusting someone to tattoo you only hours after they got pulled over and Snapchatted the whole thing.
