Birthday Party Theme-Boys

I'm really interested in doing something fun for my 8 year old son's birthday party. I came across this photo on pinterest and have begun talking to several tattoo parlors in the area. One said they would let me rent the place out, but there was drug paraphanalia out on the counter in public view. They assured me it was for entertainment purposes only that they sold it (gag gifts, i guess). 

I'm a little hesitant but I think the party idea is so much fun! What should I do?

I wouldn't let my son attend a party at a tattoo place at 8 years old.

I think a lot of it depends on the guest list and how those parents would react. Do they have tats? Have any of them ever made their opinion of tattoos and tattooed people be known and it be negative? Do the tattoo shops have a bad rep?


Personally, with the places around here and some of the guests, a party in a tattoo parlor is not something I would do for one of my boys.

I think that's really cool depending on the place.  I mean, there are some great shops and there are some trashy shops...

tf? No.

Why can't you have this done at your house or something? You'd be exposing them to things they aren't ready for.

I have an 8 year old son and I don't think its appropriate unless the childs dad really is a tattoo artist. Especially in a place that sold drug paraphanalia for "entertainment" purposes - yeah right ;)

As the parent of a seven year old son, no way in hell would I let my son go to a party at a tattoo parlor!
