Man has it been hot here the last couple of days which wouldn't be to bad if my darling daughter Natasha would leave the air con on but she is a strange one says she is cold and will walk around with a jacket on in 30 degree heat.

Yesterday my niece Kelli who is 14 went and got a tattoo on her shoulder it is of a skull with a knife through it and blood drops, it looks cool. Her father went with her to get it done so she did have his permission, however, her mother is not happy about it.

I think my sister is annoyed with me as I said it looked cool and she thinks I am encouraging her but I am really just supporting her. Kelli is a strong willed girl who will not be told what to do or how to act so I like to support and let her know that I am here for her and that I love her just the way she is.

I understand Sue is worried that she will regret getting it done but Kelli has to make her own mistakes in life, if she regrets it then she will just have to always where something that covers it. Yes it is a large tattoo but it is what Kelli wanted, Kelli also has a number of piecings 10 in fact and that is just the type of girl she is. I don't know if you can understand that I don't see the piecings when I look at her I just see her and I think she is a strong beautiful girl. I think of her like a fourth daughter.

Heather.......Your sister is the best have to agree with you there.

Diane.....As Kelli said a butterfly is just not her her tattoo may not be what a lot of people would think it appropriate but it is who Kelli is.

Kelli....I am happy you approve of this blog you know I love you just the way you are.

The little girl is too young and inexperienced to be allowed to mutilate herself permanently. Her care givers should re-examine their values. What will that tatoo look like in 30 years---AND what type of partners will appreciate it?

Why is it so hard for you to leave a name?

Do you know Kelli? I don't think so.
