Kailyn Lowry and her husband Javi Marroquin were spotted recently at a tattoo studio where Javi was getting the finishing touches put on his "sleeve" tattoo. It's a cool tattoo and they are a cool couple, but now Kailyn (who is pregnant) and Javi won't have a leg to stand on when it comes to Isaac and their baby-to-be's future tattoos.
As a tattooed mama, this is something that worries me, too. I love tattoos in general. I think they are cool and there is something so amazingly freeing about reclaiming your own skin and making it your own by getting a tattoo. But that still doesn't mean I want my babies ruining their perfect skin with tattoos.
And yes, I know this makes me a hypocrite. From the day I got my first tattoo (at 32) with my husband (a special couple's tattoo) for our seventh wedding anniversary, I knew our kids would probably want tattoos themselves some day. And that bothers me.
