My daughter just turned 18 and went to get a tattoo and when I say my heart hurts bc I feel she should had waited...I wish I could have stopped her from doing it. Then she did it on her wrist. It's not big. But still. I don't know what's the big rush. So upset

Oh to be 18 again. Young, naive & carefree. (Actually you couldn't PAY me to be that age again! lol) Since there's not too much you can do at 18 besides vote & buy lottery tickets, I guess this was her big statement about stepping into adulthood. And while it may be a bit more socially acceptable to have tattoos, there are still some professions that frown upon visible tats. Since I'm sure you've expressed your displeasure w/ her decision, I would leave it at that. She knows how you feel, but if you harp on the issue, you might as well drive her to the tattoo parlor yourself for the next one! Be patient mama, in a few more years, you will be wise to her again! :)
