  • All over..no. But I have put one on when my youngest was about 10 months old. His older brothers were getting them and they wanted him to have one too. No big deal.

  • No way. My dd4 went through a phase where she loved them, I hate them, they get crappy looking fast and they are WAY harder to remove than they should be, I'd hate to scrub an infant to get the old tattoo off.

  • Nope, I'm not so bored that I would cover my baby in temporary tattoos. Who does that? One tattoo I could see but to be covered in them? Come on!

  • My toddler's 3rd birthday is coming up and we're going to have Spiderman tattoos. His little sister (9mths) is going to get a tattoo also ;)

    I see no issue with it unless they have sensitive skin that is irritated by them. *shrugs*

  • No way!! not only because I personally think they look ugly, but also my daughter has really sensitive skin and why put something like that on their body when it doesnt need to be and when you dont know what their reaction to it will be!! But hey everyone has their own opinion.

  • OP Here. My sister and her husband have a lot of tattoos so they put them all over their 9 week old because they think he looks cute. I just think it's really weird but I wanted to see if maybe others put them on their baby's too and I was just maybe missing something. And I have nothing against tattoos, I have some of my own. Just on a baby seems really weird.
