Babyink Tattoo

I just read the "info" page and looked at the pictures and I don't want to believe these folks are for real. Garfield tattoos on little kids' arms? How wrong is that?

Some particular gems I liked:

Quote:
They use our specially designed "Junior Needle" which is smaller and less intrusive than the ones used on adults.

How Will My Child's Growth Affect the Tattoo?

If the tattoo is a word or an outline of a picture it will change very little over time and could require just one follow up visit before the child reaches it's full size. In the case of more detailed pictures with color and shading, the coloring will stretch and the tattoo will need a quick and affordable "update" about every four years until full grown.
"Less intrusive" needles? So... how's the ink gonna stay put? (How are you going to keep a child from scratching the healing tattoo and getting sunburns with it anyway?) And what's with the idea that outlines won't stretch, but shading will?

If this isn't a joke, I'd say that's infinitely worse than "temporary tattoos" and getting toddlers' lobes gun-pierced. I need to go restore my faith in humanity somehow now.

I saw this on another board earlier and they were wondering if it was real too but I don't think it is.

I'm sure its illegal for anyone under the age of 18 to be tattoeed or pierced.

You can be pierced if you're under 18 with parental permission, and I think you can get a tattoo at 16 with parental permission.

I would think those kids would be crying a lot if it were real, numbing cream and non-intrusive needle or not.

I thought they looked real too, but I now think looking carefully and with the comment above about why arent they crying, that it was probably just staged very well, to make it look real.

I can't get the page to load, but it sounds a lot like "Bonsai Kitty". Anyone ever see that website? It had the whole internet in an uproar because they were "selling" kits to stuff kittens in jars and let them grow in there. It was nothing more than a well staged joke.

I've noticed that they're not crying either. It can't be real. I hope it isn't anyway.

nuuuh... look at the last q on the info page

"Can you take a check from my overdrawn account that I closed 2 years ago?
No. We accept cash and major credit cards."

wtf? that's definitely not a faq. listed right after "how long will it take to heal?"
