Obama: Daughters’ Tattoos Come With A Price

By: Amanda Crum - April 24, 2013

Obama said recently that if his daughters ever make the decision to ink themselves, he and Michelle will make them pay in the form of embarrassment.

The president apparently isn’t a fan of tattoos–at least not on his kids’ behalf–and says that if they ever come home with one, he and their mother will get the exact same design in the same spot on their bodies before showing it off on YouTube as a “family tattoo”. Of course, for two girls whose parents are the most famous and recognizable people in the country, one would think their embarrassment tolerance is a bit more elevated than that.

“Our thinking is that might dissuade them from thinking that somehow that’s a good way to rebel,” Obama said.

    Tatoos are not a sign of rebelliousness. My son has got tatoos and hes never rebelled me.in his 24.years.

    What form of rebellion does Mr. president approve of then? If they get pregnant will he and Michele get pregnant too? I’m sure this false threat of public shaming will be successful since we all know kids only rebel in ways their parents deem acceptable.

    Is it a family tradition to make mistakes on purpose?
