My child is an honor student, athlete, and very popular student with a tattoo. The tattoo he has will be something he will never regret. Tattoos are a form of expression if you don't like them then don't look at them.

Im 15 with a tattoo in the 8th grade. I did it because my tat has a reason. Not just to get it to look cool. Im an honor role student with strait A's. Dont judge people by the way they look. My tat is none of your buisness and if you wanna be a good parent let your kids express themselves

I think that a few small tattoos are one thing but when people are tattooed all over their arms and sometimes face and neck it's too much. I believe that it makes them almost unemployable at certain jobs. In my opinion it makes them look trashy. That is just my opinion but I know it is shared by alot of people. It creates a bad first impression to some people.

Tattoos are not just some "fad" or passing trend. Tattoos are just as much a part of human history as hair styling. A lot of cultures used tattoos as a way to show their achievements and status. A kid with a crappy tattoo is not necessarily a bad kid, but maybe a poor one? You get what you pay for with these, and sometimes people do let their friends practice on them, and before they get good, they're going to be not so good.

Tattoos do not make a person look trashy. That is a lot of money to invest in beautiful art that decorates my body, while you can pay nothing to flaunt your ingrown hairs and acne, or sun burn, or ashy skin.

And the reason you don't see "beautiful women in magazines" with tattoos is because a decent makeup artist takes the time to cover them, or they are photoshopped out. Let's not pretend they don't exist. You must be stupid. By your own logic you must have a tattoo.

Just shut up.

It's no one else's business what anyone does with their bodies. If these parents allow their child to get a tattoo, I am happy for them, if not, I will respect that, but understand that you can't control your child forever, despite what you want.

The person sitting here saying in 10 years that inspirational quote will lose meaning, is stupid. You don't know that it'll lose meaning. Do you even have a tattoo? Not all tattoos have to have a meaning. Not all of them have to have a message, did you know that? I'm sure it escapes your tiny brain that something that lasts forever doesn't have a meaning, but sometimes it's just beautiful and makes ME feel good.

Why does something I'M proud of, have to mean something to everyone else?

These people get tattoos for them, not for you, and if you're so offended, don't get a tattoo, although considering that it's not your freaking body, I don't understand the cause for offense here.

I swear to God I wish I could live on another planet and leave these stupid people behind on Earth to deny global warming and that guns are bad. Let natural selection take its course before the ones who left for planet common sense, return.

I have several tattoos, as does my husband and both kids.
All four of us have college degrees and are very educated, and if I say so myself, a clean, beautiful family.
We all hold respectable jobs as well.
The ones on this forum that are knocking tats, you don't have a clue and have no right to judge.
You all sit and look forward to knocking everyone that you can because you don't know any better.
Get real!

I was in high school when I got my first tattoo. It was a cross in memory of my cousin Lisa who passed away of cancer. Doesn't make my parents bad parents for getting something in memory of her.

I totally agree with you about piercings and tats this is something that is a parents right to allow students to get them. Just because a child has tats or piercings does not mean they are bad kids. It is offensive that as a parent you don't have better things to do than get on a forum and run your mouth about other parents do you personally know the parents whose kids have tats or piercings are bad parents. NO you don't. Who is to say you aren't a bad parent by controlling your kid so much they can't be theirselves.
Nothing original about another's quote. Come up with your own idea. 93% of prison inmates have tattoos. 2% of brain surgeons. Anyone surprised?

Why did you feel the need to get a tattoo? I respect you. However, as an educated person, please explain how that money getting a tattoo wouldn't have been better spent feeding the homeless. Who in society benefits? Every other pot smoking high school grad gets a tat. Why is MICHIGAN better off for it? I seriously want to know. Can we at least admit it's not original or creative in any way? It has become the norm. Getting a tat is easier than volunteering.

Obviously a fad in 2013. Every other grad gets a tat. It's usually in a language they don't understand.

Why get them? I express myself with my words and actions. I don't need a tattoo to tell you what I believe in. My actions will tell you.

Over 6000 languages but if you get your tat in Arabic or Hebrew it is somehow more meaningful.

By the way... We live in the USA. We all have the right to judge and say whatever we want. Getting ink injected into your skin doesn't make you smart.

I have four tattoos, all meaningful to me of course, I got my first at 16, with parental consent of course. Having a tattoo doesn't alter what kind of person you are. Not that it's relevant but I graduated with straight A's. honor roll, 3.8 GPA the whole nine yards. I do volunteer on a regular basis, in fact I'm leaving the country soon for 3 months in Central America. I would love to see where your statistics are coming from about what percentages of brain surgeons have tattoos; but alas that too is irrelevant. As to people with tattoos being unintelligent, please explain to me why people such as Winston Churchill and Theodore Roosevelt? Now all my 4 tattoos are places easily covered for convenience if I so choose to cover them. Yes there is a difference between putting something artistic and meaningful on your skin and some shitty scratcher putting a tribal on your arm in his garage. Tattoos aren't a new trend either, if you don't like them that's your own issue. But if you think (when done tastefully) they are a way to measure someone's worth, then your ignorance is astounding.
