5 Tattoos No Mom Wants to See on Her Teen's Body

nightmare tattooLet me just say: I like tattoos. I have tattoos. Which is precisely why I know how important it is to choose a tattoo wisely. Believe me, one minute you're sure you want some dude's initials inked on your ankle forever, the next you're trying to figure out how to turn those initials into a catchphrase you can stand to look at every day for the rest of your life. So while I've resigned myself to the fact that my kids will probably end up going under the needle at some point, I still hope against hope that they won't end up with some undeserving love interest's initials on their skin or, worse -- one of these monster-pieces.

Like this winner right here. I mean, skulls are cool. I got nothin' against goth. But I'm not sure about this skeleton grim reaper dude with little wings. I mean, why is he harvesting a garden of baby heads?

I'm gonna take a wild guess and say that tattoo significantly narrowed down its owner's employment options. Just like these 5 terrible tattoos no mom would ever want to see on her teen's body.
