Tattoos are much more mainstream than they were when I was a little girl. Few parents, if I can even recall any, had visible tattoos. My friends and I grew up daydreaming about how rebellious and badass we would be if we got a tattoo because mom and especially dad would not approve.

Well, the times have changed! Tattoos are everywhere, on all types of people and there isn't the stigma I remember about parents having tattoos anymore. There's actually something quite endearing about a big, tough tattooed man holding his child...because, you know, however badass that guy is, one glance from his little baby and he's as soft as a kitten's underbelly.
