    I doubt there are any, as long as they're not having them done w/o parental consent.

    TOP 10 Reasons Children Aren't Allowed In Tattoo Parlors - -

    NUMBER 10: They're too small. They quickly run out of body space for new tattoos.

    NUMBER 9: Some parents want a tattoo of a large bull's eye on their kids' forehead.

    NUMBER 8: Kids always choose the obscene tattoos.

    NUMBER 7: Because your 13 year old daughter just got a "LICK ME" tattoo near her crotch.

    NUMBER 6: You might have clown make-up permanently tattooed on your kid's face.

    NUMBER 5: You're not thrilled that your 6 year old kid has a "My Mom Is A Bad-Ass Mom" tattooed on his ass.

    NUMBER 4: Your teenager wants his low I.Q. tattooed on his forehead.

    NUMBER 3: And you thought those WERE his pants!

    NUMBER 2: Your flat-chested teenage daughter wants tattooed breasts.

    AND NOW, the NUMBER ONE Reason Children Aren't Allowed In Tattoo Parlors - -

    They won't allow your 8 year old son to have an arrow on his chest pointing down that says, "Immature".

    Maybe I should have been more clear

    My post was for the concern I have for my children to be taken to a tattoo parlor with their ncp.
    I can argue all day in the face as to why "I' feel two small children DO NOT belong in a tattooo shop... but it will sink further in if I have some LEGAL backing...
    any suggestions....?

    How often does he go? Does he work at one, or is he being tatooed every other weekend? If so, aren't they close to running out of "canvas" by now?

    I guess

    As long as the kids didn't get hurt and they are not there all day everyday I think this is something that you are going to have to "let go". Did the kids complain about it? Have you tried talking to dad about your feelings?


    I have personally taken the kids with me while I got my tongue pierced. They are 12 and 10 so they weren't babies and it took all of 5 minutes. I am the cp and I told the ncp about it. He was fine with me taking his daughter with me. He trusts me and knows I wouldn' allow them to get hurt. Although I opened a can of worms because my 10 yr old wants her belly pierced (not until she is 18) and my 12 yr old now wants a tatoo (not until he is 18) is what I told them both. LOL

    If you trust him with the kids than trust him enough to know he won't let them get hurt. Call a friend and complain to them about it but don't let the kids hear you say it.

    "don't sweat the small stuff" is my motto.

    As long as the kids aren't in danger (i.e. in a crack house that routinely gets shaken down by rival dealers), you don't really have any say how the NCP spends his time with the kids.

    My response:

    And, did you tell them WHY you had your tongue pierced?

    "Well, sweety, Mommy likes to go "bobbing for apples" and with that little piece of jewelry in my tongue, it makes all my boyfriends "feel" real good."

    Sorry

    Sorry to disappoint you guys. I got my tongue pierced because I wanted to I thought it looked cool so I went and got it done. I have my belly button pierced twice and I also had my eye brow pierced (that one is taken out). i do not go bobbing for apples and that was just plain rude. And for your information the people that I talk to about the tongue ring said it made no difference what so ever in the sensation. So unless you have one and know what you are talking about please don't assume crap about me. My kids asked me what it felt like, I told them they never asked me why I got one. And if they did I would tell them because I wanted one.

    There is nothing wrong with it and as long as I like it that is all that matters. I take it out during the week for work and I have it in on the weekends. I also have one tatoo (with the kids names in it) on my leg.

    Is there something to hide NO is there something to be embarassed (sp?) NOPE.

    Hi Karen!

    I don't think anyone meant anything negative... just joking around.

    But honest? No difference at all?

    I always thought tongue rings were sorta sexy, but man, it just looks painful! When you take it out does it make your tongue feel lighter? Someone told me that once...

    oops, not talking legal stuff anymore are we? LOL


    Later, Karen. Lyle

    sensorship isn't just for TV....

    Well now that we have covered why she got her toungue pierced...his lesson on bobbing for apples...looking cool....being sexy.... just wanting it so on and so forth

    My concern are my children. What they are exposed to? What impressions they are given by the people they are associating with? What influances are being impressed upon them at such young ages?

    #1 NO I do not trust the NCP.

    #2 I do have say in what the NCP does with my children when he is with them if it causes them stress...discomfort...negative reprocussions etc etc.

    #3 I have 5 tattoos myself... and my children know that I got them after I turned 18 and was resposible for "me".

    #4 NO, they have not been watched as they should be to be in a place that has nudety plastered all over the walls, as well has sharp objects within reach.

    Tattoo..piercing....whatever someone personally has... does not concerns me. Kids today are exposed to WAY to much and have access to way to many things they should not. I will do everything I can to control what my children are exposed to because I am a parent and I care about my children and their upbringing. And with this I add these.... I would not allow my child into a BAR and have them sit and watch me or my friends drink...(that is an ADULT) environment I would not take my children to an adult store... (another ADULT environment) I would not allow my child into a night club (once again...ADULT environment)


    Where did sensorship in the homes and up-bringing of our children get pushed so far back???

    It is what WE as parents allow our children to see...be exposed to...experience while they are young that will determine the lives they live later in life.

    For the Young Lady that has her tounge pierced: You have more guts then I alone to have a sharp object stuck in your tounge... Taking your children with you... my opinion is just that... mine. In this situation (mine) I know what type of people go in and out. I know where it is located and how it is set up. It is not a place for kids. I do not know you or of your relationship with your kids to pass a "real" opinion. I can only speak of what I have here.

    My original question and even second questioned was for my children.

    For the man feeling they are sexy... well.... ok.

    For the man schooling us on bobbing for apples... I cant really say much other then your responses have been a true waste of time to even read for sarcasm and ignorance is so much more unattractive and unbecoming then body art.

    Back to my children... All I wanted to know.....

    Did anyone know of any laws?

    What might I do to protect my children from being exposed to people and things they really at this age should not be exposed to. (yes I could be that fridged B*^%* and just refuse visitation and cause a HUGE stink. But that is NOT my style. I have to children that love their father, however his choice is where to "hang out" with his kids he seldom sees is causing concern.

    I have discussed my concerns with my children on a level in which they will understand. (they are children after all) I do not speak poorly about their father to them. That is WRONG no matter the situation.

    Just as driving...drinking...smoking...marriage...have legal age limits. I thought MAYBE for the sake of my children or ANY child there would be a law or regulation or something "sensible" someone could offer my situation for the sake of my children.

    However... If this particular post would like to continue as a fest for artistic disputes... have at it. Im done.

    I see some folks still have trouble with adult conversation.

    So: THERE ARE NO LAWS... and if you DON'T want conversation or opinions, go look the damn stuff up online like any semi-intelligent person would. Try typing in "Tattoo parlor law" or Tattoo parlor age restrictions" and see what comes up.

    Now the part you hate... OPINION TIME! lol

    "I will do everything I can to control what my children are exposed to because I am a parent and I care about my children and their upbringing."

    This is the best advice you will ever get. And I'm not even going to charge you...

    Your job as a parent is NOT just to control what your children are exposed to ( work with me here, I'm not talking about letting them go into the porn sextion... ), but to teach them about what they will be exposed to. Because you know what? Whether you like it or not, they will be exposed someday. And if they aren't educated on dealing with things like sex and violence and mean people, and financial responsibility and birth control, ect ect ect ect... guess what? They will have trouble when confronted with things you sheltered them from.

    So... in summary: Quit whining about the Tattoo parlor and teach them about it. WHY you don't like them there. WHY you think it's a bad environment. WHY you don't like porn. ( I'd tell them it makes women into nothing more than images that men don't see as real people... but that's just my opinion). TEACH the kids, but don't shelter them.



    Here, these are the rules and regs for TN tattoo parlors:
