Baby Ink: Tattoos for Toddlers?

By July 8, 2003

Follow me on:

No, Virginia, there is no Baby Ink. The Website promoting a tattoo parlor catering to infants and children is a hoax — an April Fools joke, actually — conceived by a bunch of wacky DJs (aren't they all!) at Channel 933 KHTS-FM radio in San Diego. A blurb on the station's Website brags about it thus: 'The Website showed children getting real tattoos. We even brought in a fake tattoo artist and pretended to tattoo a baby live on the air... in the end we revealed our joke!'  And a knee-slappingly funny one it was, at that.

Is it also a joke that they are saying you can get your toddler a tatoo that will last for life and if you don’t like it they will pay to burn it off. I think it is horrible that they would waste air time saying things like that. Can’t you just see disgruntled parents that only see their children from time to time paying back the other spouce. You know their are crazy people that would do it not even thinking about the child

there is a real website that tattoos babies and toddlers its tattoos4toddlers.com and I think its F**ked up, they’re able to do it legally because they blast the ink into their skin with pressurized helium, instead of using needles, but its still permanent for 10 yrs, and they do this to children as young as 6 months old!!!
