Be the cool dad and be supportive. 🙂
@NoelleNotNoel:disqus – Noelle, you know that I’m NOT that dad! Besides, my older son already has SEVERAL tattoos!
Love this! Geek tattoos – how can any parent object?
@AlmostPractical:disqus – if only MY kids wanted tats like “Son’s” in this comic strip!
Hilarious! I told mine he’d have to get his own tat when he turned 18. Funny thing, he’s now 22 and still no tats. 🙂
@JeniseFryatt:disqus – My older son has now gotten several tats – I hate ’em all – but he has to pay for them himself and I’m SURE he’ll hate most of them later, too! This sort of thing is something “they” have to go through. With my generation, it was just long hair and ugly clothes – nothing as permanent. Yes, tattoos can be removed but it’s not easy, it’s expensive, and there’s usually some residue!
I have tattoos covering both upper arms, but because of their (intentional) positioning, they are not visible under any circumstance except when I wear a polo shirt and the lower portion of the ink “peeps out” from under the sleeve. So there is no danger that they would be seen in professional environments…again, that was intentional on my part.
