Ok, first of all, that’s not a real Tattoo Machine. You can clearly see the ball point pen in it! Secondly you can see the little girl is wearing some shop’s shirt. The guy who you think she is tattooing is probably her Dad, Uncle or someone close to her and he is probably an artist and/or shop owner and he’s probably playing with her. Any man who spends real time with his kids is by no means a bad parent. I’m sure playing dress up an tea partys are bad parenting too huh?
My daughter has the same machine……it has colored pens you put in it an a stencil set…..her dad is an artist an both my children have grown up around tattooing . .. i see no problem here……i can think of alot of other things that would be bad parenting this isnt one of them
very cute, when my (6mos old atm) daughter gets bigger i’m going to periodically do hand drawn in sharpie tattoos (they last longer than rub ons imo) for her, and even do a design for the back of a hoodie in sharpie fabric markers. seriously people need to be less taboo about tattoos and kids!!
I think that’s actually really sweet. He’s obviously sharing an interest with her and is spending quality time with her, which is more than can be said for many fathers. The tattoo gun looks like a toy, but if it was real there’s a daddy that has a special memory tattooed on him.
Travis Barker had his children write their names on paper and had it tattooed on him. This is pretty much the same thing, except she’s tattoo him free hand. I think it’s cute, and it would be SUPER cute if it was real. He’d have a piece of her art work forever.
This is adorable. I might have to pick up one of these for my son. Does any one have the link to the article that Melly posted about ? I would love to read it! As a tattoo enthusiast myself, I think it will be important that my son have an understanding of them. Even if he has no interest in getting them in the future. Of course, at the same time I realize that tattoos are a very big decision. I got 3 before the age of 19 and I don’t like them at all. That’s not to say I wont like the ones I get in the future that are done professionally.
Yep it’s a toy & my kids each had 1 too & practiced on their Dad all the time. We lost him to cancer a year ago when kids were 9 & 11 & some of their best memories were “tattooing” on their Dad. He also had his toenails painted different colors by our daughter because by that time he could hardly get out of bed but still wanted to spend time with her doing something she enjoyed. This guy is an AWESOME Dad for doing what the kid wants to do, not making her do what he wants to do. My kids would give a lot to have their Dad back to do fun things like this with him. It’s the memories that count.
