How tattoos and babies are pretty much the same thing.
I'm not super pro-tattoo or anti-tattoo.  I've debated getting one in the past but never that seriously.  But my mother is vehemently anti-tattoo.  Listed below are the reasons my mother has always given me for why I shouldn't get a tattoo.

The legal complexities of giving kids independence
The other day, Sam, Alrik, and I wanted to head out to the playground — and Mikko didn't. Now, the playground is literally a block from our home. Mikko is 7 years old, nearly 8, and perfectly capable of amusing himself and retrieving drinks or snacks as nee...
