    I'm a teacher and I have 3 but planning more. My kids last year loved it when they saw one (on the back of my neck when hair was up) lol I think it made me slightly more human to them! We used to have discussions about them in the staff room etc and loads of the teachers and aides had at least one. I really don't think it's an issue unless it is something offensive or unsuitable for children.

    I'm an early childhood teacher and have one on my wrist most of my preschoolers have seen it. More than half my work mates have tattoos as well most are on wrist, neck, feet and back.

    I'm not sure what the correlation between tattoos and sexuality is?

    But to appease your curiosity, my childrens primary babysitters are a lesbian couple. As I've said in another thread I like my children to be surrounded by examples of loving relationships, irrespective of their sexuality.

    If they told me they were gay then I'd be fine with that. Sexuality isn't a choice, tattoos are.

    Tattoo hate confuses me. It's a picture on your skin.. we're not sacrificing goats at midnight and praying to demons I just dont understand how someone who likes to have something meaningful put on their skin is a bad person

    I believe its from the stereotypical but very outdated belief that only bikies, druggies, murderers and criminals get tattoos... I get all sorts of looks when my tatts are showing...

    I saw a picture on facebook recently of a dude with two full sleeves and a bald head.. in one photo he is just dressed casually.. in the photo next to it he is dressed as a dr... and the caption read "this 'delinquent' could save your life".. I would've clicked like on it thousands of times if I could

    No one said that they are bad people. Blissed Out was just being honest that it's not what she wants for her children. As for meaningful, as she mentioned, her DP has tribal tattoos, you know, from his actual tribe. I would like to think that every person actually has meaningful tatts, but my experiences has shown they aren't. I would be disappointed if my son got tatts. I would like to think he can avoid following mass trends. Although I'm thinking by the time he's older it will have passed.

    I'll just clarify here, as people do seem to be really confused about what I've said.

    I don't think people with tattoos are bad people, I think permanently marking your skin is not a good thing.

    I have lots of friends with tattoos. They're great people.

    I just don't want my kids growing up thinking marking your skin permanently is a normal thing to do. I would hope if and when they get tattooed they would've put a lot of thought into the commitment they're about to make to that image. I don't want them to have a casual attitude towards it.

    But Blissed Out also likened it to letting kids watch disgusting, sexual film clips and taking drugs?

    No she didn't.

    There is no correlation between sexuality and tattoo's. I was comparing them in the sense that neither have a direct bearing on whether a person is good or not (and hence it's ridiculous to judge people for it).
