If i see you in the shops yep ill stare... im appreciating your tatts and as for my kids playing with yours.. would you let your kids play with mine? Im pretty heavily tattooed myself... dont think kids should miss out cause i like to decorate my temple lol

I stare but that is because I secretly have a large tattoo over my back and I appreciate them. You would never know because I cover it up as I am a school teacher and I don't want to run into students at the shops etc with it showing. I would definitely let my child play with yours. I wouldn't let your child miss out based on your looks.

I stare and have resting bitch face. I don't even realise I'm staring so I quite often get horrible looks from tattooed people because I look judgy lol. I'm not judging I swear I just space out a bit lol. Yes my kid can play with your's

Thanks ladies, this is exactly what I thought! Of course people look at my tattoos, it's natural curiosity. My husband is a tattoo artist and some of his colleagues wives think people judge them as mothers based on their tattoos (none of them are as heavily tattooed as me ๐Ÿ™) and I have always disagreed. Thank you for proving my point ๐Ÿ˜Š And too the lady who said I'm probably are correct! ๐Ÿ˜‹ Xxxx

 That was me ๐Ÿ˜Š i love tatts, I'm not covered but i have quite a few and will eventually get more.. one of the mums at my childs day care is covered and absolutely smokin'! i can't help but stare! ๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜

I love people expressing their individuality which is what tattoos are and yes I would let my child over to play with yours

If I see you in the shops I will probably stare. I appriciate all art forms and I love looking at an artists work, so I am looking at your tattoos and thinking about how talented the artist is and how much work has gone into them. It would depend on how well I knew you and our children's friendship but I would let my children play at your house if I was there until I knew you properly, just like mums with no tattoos.

I think, you must like tattoos. These days, it isn't unusual to see people with lots of them. And honestly, i wouldn't base that on whether or not I'd let my cnild play with yours. Because I'm not superficial.

Of course!!!! I don't judge people by tattoos. One of my good friends is covered, cheek piercings etc and she is a bloody fantastic mother and friend!

Honestly? 1. My children playing with yours would be fine. 2. I would think that there's another sheep who thinks their being 'individual' by giving into the latest fad of tattooing. I feel sorry for the old guys who were tattooed years ago to show how tough they were. Now every bogan grandma has their kids' names or a Chinese character tattooed somewhere on them.

Yep because you can't see my back.
Just because you can't see it doesn't mean it isn't there ;)

I think tattoos look hot. If I saw you would I judge you? No of course not! Tattoos have nothing to do with your ability to raise kids and anyone who judges you because you have tattoos needs to examine their own parenting skills first.
I talk to every one regardless who it is but if I am met with hostility or disrespect then I steer clear.
Most of my friends have tattoos and I have one too :)

I'd get to know you like I do anyone before my kids go to your house.

I wouldn't judge based on tattoos - I would be looking at them out of curiosity since I enjoy skin art. I would judge you and your kid on your behaviour - if you're a feral with a feral kid, sure as eggs I wouldn't want them playing together.
