Tattoos for Babies: Kid Friendly or Are You Kidding?

Nearly 50 percent of lilsugar readers like the idea of getting their child's pic tattooed on their body, but what about tattoos for your baby's body?

These Tattoos for Babies ($5) are temporary so you need not panic about CPS knocking on your door, but they do present a bit of a dilemma: Are they a cute and painless way to decorate baby or are they too close to pins and needles for comfort?

I think they are pretty funny - I put a butterfly "tramp stamp" on my daughters back when she was about 6 months old (the only ones who saw it were my family and the daycare sitter). It just made me giggle when I saw it. My son LOVES the tattoos (they are better than gum at the grocery store)- he is 6 and has loved them for years. They are harmless and funny - a great way for them to express themselves.

I probably wouldn't put them on a baby because they probably would just be too young to really care. My 3 year old on the other hand LOVES temporary tattoos. I don't think I would of ever thought of this on my own but her day care provider did it with them and it was an awesome idea. When putting them on you generally have to wait 20-30 seconds and she loves counting out loud while we wait. Fun and educational!

Yeah "I don't like these" isn't uptight, it's opinion. I wouldn't put these on my baby for daily wear, but I would for a party or something. I have five tattoos and highly recommend them. I can't wait to get more!

Relax? This is pretty relaxed.. you must be new and haven't seen how heated some of these lilsugar comments can get ;-) mommies can be fierce ;-)

I bought this for my friend as a joke. I can't imagine buying this for myself and bringing it home for my own child.. but it seems like a great gag gift and fun for families who are into tattoos. It's a novelty item folks, relax!!

I have one tattoo and I do not suggest them. I absolutely love mine, but I'd never get another one!

I'm a tattooed mama as well but didn't love these :-/ Maybe for a toddler or a child that was old enough to want one. It may be my anti-tattoo husband rubbing off on me :-(

i love them! I'd a tattooed momma, and I come from a family that loves tattoos too, so I think it would be fun to stick one on my little guy every once in a while (say, to dress him up like a little biker for Halloween). I actually want to go order them now!
