I’m one of those people that doesn’t plan to have kids. This sounds like a pretty straight forward decision, but it comes with more grief than you would expect. Constantly being challenged or told that you just don’t know what you want yet. I’m in my mid-30s; I’ve thought this through. I do, however, have tattoos. They don’t all have grand, tv-tattoo meanings. I just like them. So, when I came across this blog this morning, I felt like it should be shared. Kids and tattoos, I’m comfortable with my choice.
I’m not super pro-tattoo or anti-tattoo. I’ve debated getting one in the past but never that seriously. But my mother is vehemently anti-tattoo. Listed below are the reasons my mother has always given me for why I shouldn’t get a tattoo.
And I understand that she’s from a different generation. And I love my mother very much. She’s a really wonderful person and I’m not saying none of them is a legitimate reason, but I’m saying that after having a child, I find it really hard to take any of them seriously.
And so in case you were headed out to the tattoo parlor as we speak, here are:
