So im a divorced mother of 2. I have 8 tattoos.
The kids dad is remarried. Neither one of them have tattoos.
Obviously i am all for tattoos and look forward to the day my kids are old enough to get their own.
My 5 year old tells me that people with "real" tattoos go to jail. I said no they dont. I have 8 and have never been arrested and tried to point out more people like that. She said her stepmom is the one that told her that. That crap pisses me off!
Ironic how i, with 8 tattoos, has never been arrested but dad, with no tattoos, has been arrested and spent a day in jail. Effin hypocrits.

My grandma believes you can tell someone's been to prison if they have a bunch of tattoos.

Or not. Or they've been in the military. I find tattoos very common among service members and veterans. My dh wants at least 1/2 sleeves.

What does going to jail have to do with tattoos ?

Exactly. I think they tell her that to scare her into not wanting any in the future. She likes them but is afraid she'd get arrested. Smh...

Wow, talk about misleading a child. I'm sorry to hear that.
It sounds more like a personal attack on your character then anything. Shame on them.

I agree. I have 8 tattoos, and I've never been arrested or in jail either.

What if your kids choose not to get tatts?  You make it sound like they have to to make you proud.  You all  need to back off and let them choose things like that for themselves.
