"that kid's gonna get so much ass in school!"

Yesterday Lexci, a piercer at Dragon FX posted the following pictures:

The story behind them is that the kid's grandmother had come in to get some jewelry changed, and offered to show them this seven year old child's tattoo, which had been done by his father, a tattoo “artist”. I'll add that the child is homeschooled and has serious speech problems (that is, while I think homeschooling can be a great thing in many cases, in this case it didn't appear to be).

She's considering turning the matter over to family services as an abuse case — In general I support youth modification, but I really think that this tattoo is a very, very bad idea… I also worry that a parent that would put a terrible tattoo on their kid is also likely to expose them to drugs, alcohol, and who knows what else. What do you think? (Link goes to the comment forum on Lexci's page.)

    i don’t think a tattoo exposes anyone to drugs, alcohol,”and who knows what else”. if the child wanted this tattoo im sure the father gave the boy a choice of what to choose to get and if it wasn’t something that parent would a prove of that parent would say no, and tell the child to get something he wont regret.

    My concern when tattooing children is that they have so much growing and changing to do. That heart will look tiny on his grown man arms.
    Also, my son wants a lot of things, but as a parent it is my job to assist in his decision making. Seven is too young.
