Is It Okay for Parents to Give Their Kids Tattoos?

Patty Marsh and her partner Jacob Bartel were recently arrested for putting tattoos on their six kids between ages 10 and 17. In an interview with CNN, Patty Marsh said that she can’t understand why everyone’s making a big deal out of this. Their kids wanted a tattoo, so she and her boyfriend gave them one. She argues that since she’s their mother, she has the right to decide whether they get a tattoo or not.
But authorities think otherwise. Patty and Jacob are now facing charges of illegal tattooing, cruelty against children and reckless behavior.
Do you think Patty Marsh is right in saying that people shouldn’t really make a big deal out of what she and her boyfriend have done to their kids? Did you see the tools that they’ve used? She said that her kids don’t think that she and her boyfriend have done anything wrong. For me, that’s a very lame excuse. As a parent, her job is to teach her kids right from wrong. Unless of course, she doesn’t know the difference herself.
