Fake tattoos are bad!

How exactly?

 

I have never heard anything negative about fake tattoos that children play with, until I joined this site.

 

I'm just curious how people think they're bad for kids.

 

My brothers and I played with them, and all 22 of my cousins played with them as kids, and out of everyone, only one of my brothers and I have tattoos...

I've never heard anyone say the are bad. I use to love those and my 2 yo has had them a few times. I currently have one tattoo for my grandmother but I have always loved them and plan on getting my for my kids.

I played with them, my kids now play with them. I have no ink. They are fun. My mother hated them and still does. I had to set her to rights once. My middle dd then 4, went to her and showed her a butterfly she had on her arm. My mother told her "it's ugly nd it makes your arm ugly".  My dd cried.  I told my mom you don't have to like it but telling her any part of her is ugly is not acceptable in my house.   My mom said I am just saying what I think. I don't have to like it. I said no you don't but you can be nice and say thanks for showing me, I like butterflies without telling her any part of her body is ugly. She said if I can't say what I want, I will go home. I said there is the door. She went home. She got over it but I will not let anyone speak to my child the way she did. She said it mean, not in a matter of fact way.  

ETA: My mother hates them, even when we were kids, we hid them under our sleeves it we put one on.

 I remember when I was in school, people were giving kids fake tattoos that supposedly were like lsd and had hallucinogenics in the ink.  Maybe they're talking about that kind of tattoo?  I've never seen anything on CM about fake tattoos before.

I dont think there is any correlation between fake tats as a child and real tats on adults. I dont love fake tattoos but I dont mind them ocassionally for my kids

They arent "bad" but I see no difference in letting your child mark all over theirselves and going out in public. Especially when they are tasteless like a tramp stamp on an 8 year old, or a fading spider man on a boys cheek.. it really depends on where and what it is.

I'm sure its the same people who are against real tattoos.

I love the fake & real ones :) lol. Me & DH both have them.

I wont put them on my son though if we're doing a certain thing soon though. Like someones birthday party or holiday. Just cause I dont want him to look trashy with some half faded fake tattoo.
