I am young and I want a tattoo. I got the approval from my parents to get one, but I don't know. Its split 50/50 almost on my friends opinions on wether or not to get one.

Can I just get some honest opinions on tattoos?

I personally find people without tattoos more attractive and cool... so I would say do not take one.

I personally like black and white tattoos, all my tattoos are uncolored... thats how i started... i think that if my first tattoo was a colored one, i'll just continue getting colored ones

Tattoos ain't bad. You should be mindful, though, that not everyone thinks that way. Some businesses won't hire people that have visible tattoos unless you can cover them, so maybe keep in mind of where you get it? I suggest right above the buttocks, lower back area.

If you decice to get one, make sure the artists using good ink. Low quality stuff could give you a real mean infection.

You don't need tattoos. Clean body is cool.

Agreed.
But the reason I didn't get one is because I thought I'd be a bank robber when I was a kid and didn't want an identifying mark.

As others have said, some people do have negative perceptions of those who have tattoos so if you do decide to get one then it really is a good idea to get it done in a place that can be easily concealed (back, upper arms, upper legs, etc.). Heck, I have a tattoo myself and am looking to get more but even I can't help but wonder a little when I see someone with a tattoo on their face, hands, neck, etc.

You do identify yourself as being young enough to need your parents permission, and you also mention being concerned about your friends approval, so I would personally say you should probably think a little longer and harder about getting a tattoo. They are for the most part permanent and it's something you need to be 100% comfortable with and confident about. Give it some time and put some real thought into what sort of art you might be interested in. Then, once you've decided, give it a little more time to really be sure that the design you've decided on is really something you still like a few months (or even longer) after you first fell in love with it.

As for coloured or black and white, that's really up to you. The one I have is black and white but I'm leaning towards colour for my next one. A lot of it also depends on the actual style of the art you're interested in. You also have to consider that if you go coloured they open fade in a way that may not look pleasant so they may require more upkeep than a black and white. There really is no right or wrong answer here.

Honestly I don't like tattoos, I like someone with a clean body and a nice shapeup.

people with tattoos look like children

It's a personal choice but I always say you should think hard about designs you want, my usual process is to look at various designs of a subject I'm interested in and if I find some stuff I like I'll pin it up and look at it for several months to see if I become bored of it, I then take my pictures to an artist if I like it and explain my ideas so they can draw it up, suggest any tweaks I might want and if all goes well I'll book it in.

Any artist worth their salt won't rush you into buying and will work with you to get the best design.

At the end of the day it's your tattoo. You shouldn't decide whether to get a tattoo based on what other people think. Just make sure that if you do get one you are able to conceal it when you're looking for a job.

Thank you for this suggestion, as it is what I am doing. I found a design that I really like at the moment and will keep that design in mind for a couple weeks, maybe even months. After a certain amount of time if I still like it I'm going to get it. I have also decided on getting it on my right rib.
