My two-year old just learned to say "tattoo". I have two tattoos, and he's very interested in them. I'm not sure he understands what tattoos are — maybe he thinks Mommy's skin just grew these intricate designs, like he grew the mole on his leg that he's also very interested in. Maybe one day he'll want a tattoo of his own, and if he does, there are six rules.
This is Offbeat Families's archive of tattoos posts.
It's no secret around these parts that I run a post featuring products from one of our many affiliates once a week or so. These posts are always an awesome way to share product recommendations and stuff that helps you navigate these murky waters we call parenting — the books posts alone are proof of that.
Very nearly everything offered by the folks at Perpetual Kid makes me squeal, laugh out loud, or some combination of the two (SLOL? Squealoling?) — which is rad. I also find it rad that the prices on these items vary from inexpensive (DIY your own baby prints to canvas art!) to holy-shit-that's-so-cheap (a kid-sized tattoo sleeve for $5) — and that's only the beginning.
