    Never been through the pain of losing someone close to me, but I don't see any problem with this. The kid lost his brother, and probably just wanted his brother close to him once again. It isn't like he is getting a name of his girlfriend which he will regret later in life. That his brother, no regrets there.

    I saw a mother in the middle of the mall forcing her crying screaming 5 year old daughter to get her ears pierced. She was literally holding the girl down as the girl begged her mom to let her go home after the first ear. I felt sick to my stomach. That isn't worth the money for me, I would refuse to do that as the piercer and tell the woman to leave the store or call the police. The piercer was a young girl herself, and was alone in the store and went through with it.

    100% correct Kickflip. Your story is far more abusive than the tatoo story. And don't get me started on child beauty contests...

    Right. Well to say what I think about this. Of course he should not have got the tattoo. At that ages they do not have the ability to make choices like that.

    As for the jail time that is a bit harsh I don't think she did it intentionally to harm the child so I feel some sort of community service would have saved the state money and tought her a lesson along with some lessons in parenting.

    Think, she is now in jail which means the children are without a mother and probably in care. The knock on effect of this is great. She just sounds a bit dense. Typical Ameri..... Ah I jk I jk

    The mother is there to help the child make choices. If she felt it's appropriate than it is. Not the governments business to get involved unless there was true harm to the child. Commemorating a death is not a crime it's an honor to the dead and I think it should be respected.

    So sick of this country's twisted laws.... ugh.

    That's ridiculous. If it were a transformers' tattoo, you'd understand. But ...

    Leaving aside the jail aspect, what kind of parent would allow their 10 year old child to get a tattoo for crying out loud??:eek:

    How do you look into your 10 year olds sons eyes and deny him something that could possibly set him at peace with the horrible situation of losing his big brother in a car accident? A lot of people are mentally scarred forever from situations like that, and can't cope with the rest of their lives and turn to drugs and alcohol.

    His mother obviously saw something in his eyes that made her believe this needed to be done for him. I know a lot of people who have been on the edge of suicide before, and when they got a new tattoo, they felt stronger and better and were able to go on with life. I don't have any problems at all with her decision.

    It is very unlikely someone is going to judge him badly when he is older for a tattoo honoring his deceased brother. He would be much more likely to be judged badly from getting his ears pierced, which is legal with his parents permission. He is very unlikely to regret it, tattoos are obviously not taboo in his culture, as his mother also has tattoos.

    @kickflip

    I reckon we're just going to have to agree to disagree on this one. There's no circumstances in which I'd allow my (almost) 10 year old daughter to get a tattoo.

    I guess everyone has their own coping mechanism to deal with these kinds of things.
