S/O kids and fake tattoos
 
I was in the tattoo thread and it got me thinking. What do you all think of kids having fake tattoos? I'll refrain from speaking my mind as of yet so I can get some honest answers here.

My kid loves getting them. It makes me look horrible as a parent, mainly because after a week it looks like a bruise. :blush: But if it makes her 5yo heart happy, so be it.

I don't like 'em, I don't hate 'em. I guess it's better than drawing on yourself with a Sharpie or attempting to use an eraser like we used to do back in our young school days. :blush:

I don't mind 'em at all. In fact we included them in goodie bags for our 1 year old's birthday party, and both of my kids got one on their arm. Once they started wearing off after a few days, we took them off with baby oil.

I have no issues with them. DH and I have pretty visible tattoos, and plan to get more when we can afford them, so it would be silly, I think, to tell my kids they can't have their own kid appropriate too.

I've bought my boys funny little pirate ones (aaargh, matey! with some goofy pirate) and Thomas ones before. They are now 5 but this was when they were 2 and 3. My nieces (around age 12) had really intricate roses & skulls and dragon ones on their upper arms (not the cheapo ones like I bought but around $10+). It was before they got all boy-crazy, but if their parents were letting them put ones on their low back, etc...I guess that'd be a little weird. IDK, it's fake, it washes off, I guess it's not a huge deal to me...

My question is does anyone think that fake tattoos actually promotes real tattoos? Kind of like fake makeup or candy cigarettes?

To me, it's no different than drawing or face paint. I don't think it encourages actual tattooing later on in life like some do. (I mean honestly, I loved my face painted as a tiger, but I never wanted it tattoo'd on. Nor would I ever want spongebob on my arm haha) To me, it's just kids having fun with stickable art :)

My sister used to do henna art on us all when we were little. I loved it. I felt like a little princess with my swirly drawn on bracelets and ring designs :giggle:
