Are my kids the only ones fascinated with tattoos, or is this common for the younger set? They’ve seen their fair share of the colorful artwork, but fortunately for now, they are satisfied with the temporary version.
My one-year-old only has about fifty words in her vocabulary, and one of her favorites is “tattoo.” She lifts up her pant leg, points to her calf, and begs me for a “taddoooo.”
She learned this from her big sister, the four-year-old gatekeeper of the temporary tattoo collection. My oldest expects them in every stocking, Easter basket, and trick-or-treat bag. Their collection currently includes unicorns, hula girls, hearts, roses, monkeys, sharks, and monsters.
My four-year-old has become quite adept at applying them to her own limbs and those of her little sister. Between the tattoos, superhero capes, tutus, and costume jewelry, they make quite the ornamented pair.
