A MOTHER expressed her devastation over her 26-year-old daughter’s choice to get a tattoo sleeve, but people weren’t very sympathetic.
The mum explained that her daughter had been slowly adding to her tattoo collection but she felt the tattoo sleeve was awful.
She told how her daughter’s ink choices had actually driven her to tears.
Taking to Mumsnet she said: “I’m devastated by my 26-year-old daughter’s tattoos.
“I hate them. Today she showed me her new ‘sleeve’. It’s big black bold and bloody awful.

“She already has numerous tattoos and they’re getting bigger each time. She seems addicted.
“I don’t like tattoos. I don’t have to like them. That’s my choice. I’ve cried over it/her in private!
“I’ve read up about parents reactions to our kids tattoos. And we are supposed to be happy that they are expressing themselves. But I’m struggling with that.
“I was ok with a few, ok with all the piercings… but the sleeve is too far. In my opinion.”
Fellow Mumsnet users were quick to jump in with their opinions of the situation.
One person said: “At 26 I don’t really think it’s any of your business what she does with her body. You don’t have to like them but whether it’s ‘too far’ is not for you to decide.”
While another said: “You don’t have to like them, not at all, you just have to accept that it’s her body and she may continue to keep getting more and more tattoos.”
And a third said: “You need to get a grip.”
But not everyone disagreed with the distressed mum.
One person said: “I hate them. I made children with perfect lovely skin. Luckily mine all hate them too. Would also be sad.”
Another said: “I hate tattoos also and would be devastated too.”
