Dear Shae, My son wants a tattoo and I’m afraid it will ruin his life. What do you think?

Dear Barbara S.,
I say if he’s over 18, you’re just going to have to let him make his own decisions. However as a mom, maybe talk to him about bad tattoos. Perhaps, guide him into not getting something he may regret at some point in the future. Make sure that he gets one in a clean and licensed tattoo shop, as opposed to one in the back of Uncle Jim’s Van. You could always tell him that you think his idea for a tattoo is cool and then suggest you go together to get the same tattoo! That might turn him off the idea entirely.
