Boy or girl?

Go with a teddy bear with the kid's name and b-day... of course I would only do that for MY OWN kid.... but whatever floats your boat.

Don't forget to post pics!!

Sounds like a dumb idea, what if she grows up to be a tweaker or crack whore and everytime you see that tattoo you are reminded of it. Just giving a worst case scenario angle. You seem pretty dedicated to them, is it really your kid and you haven't told your buddy yet ?

If there was ever a dumb reason to get inked, this is it.

Isn't that Henna ink? Not really a tattoo.

If you were to commit a crime its a good idea not to be naked.

Here's an idea - why not take the money you would have spent on the tattoo and put it in an indexed mutual fund. When the kid turns 18 give said kid the money as a gift for graduating high school.

I think it would be appreciated more than some ink on your body.

I think the baby will be getting plenty of my money anyway. She already cost me alot of money and she wasn't even born yet. As far as the crack pot thing I don't think that will happen since her father is a Cop and I am trying to become a Cop. She will be around all the right people not to end up like that.

No that is not a henna, thats a real tattoo. You take the babys handprint just like you would a fingerprint. The tattoo is done to look just like the babys print.

I didn't know that there are smart reasons to get inked?

How about a tattoo that looks like a big turd. After all, in 10 or 20 years or so that's what it will look like anyway.
