Because I don't think I do. Last week, STFUParents posted a story about a
disturbed dedicated mom who got a tattoo (covering much of her rib-cage) of an apple immortalizing her daughter's toddler-sized bite marks. That got me to thinking, what other tattoos are parents sporting to honor their children? Is this something I should be doing? Like putting infants to bed on their backs?
After conducting some very analytical Interweb research while watching TV, I can say with little authority: Not a lot of produce tattoos out there. However, it seems that portraits are quite popular. Some bad, really bad. Some amazing. But those aren't as fun to share because I am a jerk. Additionally, many parents are getting tattoos based on their kid's artwork, which is pretty awesome if you are into body art.
Would you/have you gotten a tattoo with your child's name, birthday, picture, artwork etc? Do you love it?
And a big thank you STFUParents for serving as daily inspiration to
neglectful multitasking parents like yours truly.
