This is yet another video from my book, The Empty-Nest Road Trip Blues: An Interactive Journal from A Dad’s Point-of-View. My son and I had just finished driving 3000 miles in eight days, from Los Angeles to Boston. Upon arriving at our hotel, we saw swarms of people with tattoos arriving, as we learned, for The Boston Tattoo Convention. My son quickly left me to meet up with friends and I decided to crash the tattoo convention. The experience proved incredibly eye-opening and I had such a good time with the people that I returned again that night. I turned out to be “the alien” among all present at the Boston Tattoo Convention plus I get a lesson in judgments – don’t make ’em! Enjoy all these tattoos and cool people.
Son’s brother gets another tattoo. Son shows Dad, much to Dad’s total confusion!

This show is loosely based on this week’s “A Dad’s Point-of-View” column, My Son Got a Tattoo.
The title of this column probably brings shivers to parents of toddlers and kids under the age of 12. Many parents do not like or appreciate tattoos or any so-called “Body Art.” I am one of them plus it is against our religion and is expressly forbidden in Judaism. Nonetheless, we parents have to choose our battles and this is one I chose to lose.
My son got a tattoo. He says it’s the first of many. He’s 18. When he came home with THIS ONE – above – it was more than I’d expected. Very big, Very prominent, and Very RED. Is this a battle we parents should fight? We talked #Tattoos, #BodyArt, and Our Kids on Thursday July 12, from 6:00 – 7:00 p..m. PT. Here’s the transcript.
