What do you ladies think? Does that tattoo warrant being asked to leave?

*edit*

Apparently, she knew that she was in the wrong, because on this forum:

http://uscobm.com/forum/general-discussion/kicked-out-of-family-friendly-park-due-to-tattoos/

"My 8 year old son and I were kicked out of The Legoland Discovery Center at Grapevine Mills Mall, TX location due to unfair treatment and discrimination.  We walked in, lined up, had our pictures taken and paid. (A little over $50.00 for both of us into Legoland and the adjoining aquarium)  After 10 minutes of play time with my son, I was approached by Melanie, and waspromptly escorted out of the main area while she proceeded to tell me that I was being asked to leave and offered a refund due to a customer complaint about my tattoos.  My son overheard everything she was telling me and was instantly heart-broken due to his love of Legos and not understanding why my tattoos were cause for us to be ushered out of something so amazing in his eyes and I had unfortunately made the entire day a huge surprise. I was given no option but to either take my money back and leave, or just leave. My son and I attend MANY ‘family-friendly’ functions and parks and to be singled out and discriminated upon in front of my son and the other couple of dozen people standing around us was belittling and embarrassing.  Not to mention that after the refund, we wanted the picture they had taken of us and Melanie had to again, escort us like martyrs back through the play area to the photo desk.  She treated us like convicts, which I can only imagine in what ways this shattered my kid’s ideas of society as a whole.  I have never been treated this way, and refuse to be looked down upon for the way I look. I am seeking legal advice, but stand here with open arms to suggestions and assistance to make a widely know, LOUD example out of this situation. My heart to the children of the complainer, may they not grow up to be judgmental little haters."

She posted the story, along with pics of all her other tattoos, excluding the Tinkerbell one.

Additionally, I've seen it posted in a few different places that her other leg has a tattoo of Peter Pan masturbating "looking" at Tink. I can't seem to find a pic of that tattoo anywhere, though, so I'm not sure if it's true. If it is, then.....wow. That's about all I can say. Wow.

Sorry, I'm on the iPad because the laptop is being worked on, and I can't make the links clicky.

The tattoo is trashy but I still don't think they had a right to kick her out. I could almost be positive that they have a first aid kit, probably all decked out with ace bandages and large gauze band aids that could have simply been placed under it. couldn't that have been an alternate option. I feel bad her son was accompanied out with her. That sucks.

That's a tough one, the tattoo was fugly, plus no one in a "family" environment wants to see a tattoo of tinkerbell fucking a light switch.

Wow. I'm no prude, I like tats and I'm all for self expression. But that... Wow. I'd be interested to hear the reason behind that particular bit of ink.

I posted a comment on the blog. I've been to LegoLand and it is FULL of children of all ages. Tink should have had a band-aid bra on.

If you're going to walk around with a trashy tattoo then expect to be treated like trash and brought to the curb. 

Who thought it was acceptable to have a tattoo like that displayed in a family oriented environment. I worked in child care, we had a heavily tattooed parent who had naked female tattoos, he was asked to cover them up while in the facility. It is out of respect for individuals who do not want their children exposed to such trash.

While I think the tattoo is totally tacky, I think she could have been asked to cover it up. I wouldn't want a picture of a naked woman posted up while my kids and I were at LegoLand. Is this not the same thing??

I think the level of inappropriate is what matters. Her tattoo is not only vulgar, but could be considered pornographic. So yes, anyone with tattoos of that nature, should be asked to leave or cover it up in a place that's specifically geared towards children.

Quoting BekkieBoodle:

To all the people who ate voting yes, do you think that anyone with an inaproperate (?) Tattoo should be kicked out of family places?? I'm sure that there were many more people there at the time that had tattoos.that were not 'family friendly'... Why did they pick her out? Should there be a sign that says.people with such tattoos should not enter??
