My dd called me last night at my mom and dad's house because we are visiting my parents for the spring break. I put my dd on speaker phone so everyone could talk to her. Well she told us all that she was going to go amd get her first tattoo this Saturday. I told her that the decision was entirely up to her. I just told her that she should consider seriously where she was going to get it done and to get it done by a reputable artist. My parents on the other hand freaked out about it and let their opinions be known. My dad actually started to cry over it he was so upset. I have the mindset that it is her body and her decision and she is over 18 and in college. I just felt like I was in the middle of the train wreck last night when this all happened.

my father hates them too, I must admit i'm not crazy about them either but if they are over 18 there's not much you can do about it.  Try to talk them into something small and hidden.  I always say this is something personal for you, important to you.  And the CEO of IBM does not have tattoos on his/her knuckles or his/her neck, just food for thought

As my dad you like that shirt you're wearing? Would you like to wear it everyday for the rest of your life?
