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?"

SEE? Now when I was 7 year old, I went in to have my ears gun pierced...Well, my mom was thinking that they were not going to get but one ear done because I was screaming and whailing so much over just that little quick pinch! I don't know of any little children that wouldn't be screaming and whailing even worse than that! Especially not little girls! Also, there's no way they would have held still long enough to have that tattoo be done that well on them. I dunno, I"m pretty sure it's fake.

...and if it is, doesn't it BOTHER people to be wasting money and web space on crap like this?! right up there with the bonsai Kitty! Some jokes are just too expensive for me to attempt, I guess...

yeah, I oticed that one or two are crying...

they should let you click on the pictures and see them bigger.
i do henna tattoos on little kids sometimes and they usually mess they up, the rub agaist something, they touch them, it would be hard to heal a real tattoo on a kid.

Something else I noticed about those pics, yes, the close up ones look real, but the pictures actually showing kids with tattoos, they look like theyre drawn on. whos to say the ones close up arent adults?

Want it or not, it IS real.

This dude who owns the biggest tattoo shop in Greece has tattooed his 7 year old daghter. It's on her arm. And seeing as in the USA there is 20 time the population of greece, it doesnt seem so weird seeing 30 or so kids tattooed.

Nasty, stupid, bad, yes. But its a fact. :-/

Yeah, kids with tattoos is real, but a shop specializing in it? hmmmmmm, seems a little far fetched considering this places home base seems to be california.......a state, and the cities, being home to some of the bitchiest and narkiest people on the planet. and I don't think these guys gross enough income to pay off the cops.

Well, like I posted, the Seattle location would probably be in the middle of a Boeing complex, which seems -- uhhhhh -- unlikely. And, there are no phones numbers, yet they suggest you schedule an appointment. Hummm...

But, if anyone really does think this place might be real, why don't you email them with something like "I'd like to get my 4 year old daughter tattooed. What is your phone number so I can talk to an artist in your shop and make an appointment?"

Let us know if you even get a reply. :rolleyes:

that bonzai kitten site got to me too..its so hard to tell if its real or not, although your thinking 'people would actually do this???' but i doubt its real (just go to sales and click the top link for the supply depot and read some of the comments beside the vessels, esp near the bottom) anyways heres the link http://www.bonsaikitten.com/

oh ya..on the gallery page the fourth link says you need to contact the webmaster to see it cause of extreme modifications to the cat, anyone up to the job??

about them looking real-- a few months ago at claire's i bought a plastic card full of black fake tats that looked quite identical to the real ones that are all the rage... and seriously, they looked real, for about twenty four hours, anyway. I even put a huge one on my face and went clubbing, and my best friend screamed when she first saw me, and then proceeded to rub at my face-- and it didn't come off! heh. I also put the little japanese characters behind my ear from time to time. i know, i know, those up close ones-- with the redness and all-- look real. but the far away ones on the kids... pfft, all it took me was about five seconds and a damp washcloth.

:shrug:

I love those fake tats, though. perfect for somebody as noncommittal as myself. smile

Let me point out some things here:

This is likely staged. How do I know this?
1. They never show a closeup of a CHILD with a tattoo. They show close ups of the tats, but never pull the camera view back far enough that you can tell for certain whether the tattoo is on a child or adult body. It could be either.
(The only tats you can tell for sure are on adults are actually in the "We do adults too!" part, where they show more of the body from further away)

2. It's really easy to rub fake tattoos on and stage it as a real tattoo. I'm reasonably sure this would be pretty illegal if they were real tattoos.

3. There's a small chance they are really tattooing the children with temporary inks, but I doubt that.

I dunno, it just screams "bonsai kitty" to me, even though I can't find anything that without a doubt says it's fraudulent.

ya im pretty sure that someone at school like a teacher would notice that little jimmy's temporary tatto has been on his arm for way too long and find out it was real..even if it was at the top of his arm under his shirt sleeve..i doubt little jimmy could resist showing it off..you know how kindergarten's are :p
