I've seen some people saying that their children are scared of their husbands/boyfriends because they had tattoos. My boyfriend has tattoos and his lip and nose pierced, do you think that will be a problem with our baby when it's born?

  • No... Don't believe everything people tell you when you're pregnant.. Your baby's going to love both of you no matter what.. She/He won't be scared, that's just silly...

  • Kids who are afraid of those things aren't used to them or have had a trauma involving someone tattooed. Actually, my ex was a piercer when DD1 was in Kindergarten. The DARE officer came for Stranger Danger day. He taught the kids that people with tattoos and piercings are strangers that need to be avoided. Yup, both parents and most of everyone she knew. Asshole.

  • That is the only way they'll be used to their daddy looking so it is all they will know and there wont be an issue.

  • Not at all. Kids only react to people based upon their parents perception of those people.
    And naturally a baby born into a Tattoo family will love and accept Tattoos! :)
