#141 I cannot see how "Tawnya" is a trailor trash name. That is my Mothers name. Watch what you say because you don't know who is reading. I don't see how you would think it would be okay if you labeled it a "trailor trash" name.

Exactly! If OP's daughter spent all that time looking for a reputable tattoo artist, then she should be able to look at the newspaper for job listings. Even if it means working at a Norwegian Wal-Mart.

By the sound ofte FML, I'd say op complains about her priorities, not the tattoo itself. In Norway it's frikking excpencive to get tattooes, as a sleeve can easilly cost £1000 and up. I've left many £ in a few tattoo parlors over there, so know the rough prices. I mean, who with a sence of self would go get tattooed instead of getting an own place with income? (not taking in count that she's on welfare as you get loads to be unemployed)

Fact is, you will get harder to get a job because of your tattoos, trust me I know. And I think the mothers point here was that her daughter don't really think before acting. Not that her tattoos was "childish" but that she's focusing more on getting inked than getting her life started.

I think it's the fact that she has an angry cupcake, hemp leaf and my little pony sleeve that is relevant, not tattoos in general. Even though they CAN be covered I'd imagine a sleeve would be hard to completely cover saying as they usually cover the entire arm, and no employer for a good job is going to hire someone with pot permanently on their arm. I'm all for tattoos, but some are just plain stupid.

I don't think it makes him seem judgmental at all. Now if the tattoos had some meaning behind them, maybe her dad would be okay with them. I'm not her dad, so I could be very wrong, but it seems to me the only reason he commented on them is because of how stupid they are.

It doesn't mean OP is judging his daughter's choice of tattoo; I read it as he knew she would be judged by others. Having a hemp leaf and cartoons tattooed all over your arm could it make it very difficult to get hired in most fields.

Having a tattoo is one thing, I can understand maybe like a cross or a symbol of family. But permanently embedding meaningless bull shit into your arm at the age of 30 shows a lot about a person. Why the hell would an employer hire her with that sleeve of dumb ass tattoos?

As someone with two full sleeves, a full backpiece and scattered other tattoos I can say for certain... I'm not hiring a 30 year old with no work history and an arm covered in pot leaf tattoos. The chances I wouldn't be wasting my time training her range from laughable to nil.

Kyleekay- Your opinions are thought out, as you say, but the thoughts themselves – namely how OP sounds judgmental and given up on his daughter – are far too liberal at best, apathetic at worst. You almost completely ignore the tattoos in question, instead focusing on how you infer that the OP hates all tattoos. You also take the same egalitarian approach to child-rearing that leads to either destructive or generally unsuccessful lives. If the girl can't prioritize what's being inked into her very skin and having it actually MEAN something profound and explain a part of her life, then how could she possibly be able to prioritize how to spend money wisely or manage her time at work? If she hasn't learned any of those life lessons by the time she's 30, it's unlikely she ever will, short of a traumatic experience. Your suggestions are not unpopular for popularity's sake… just plain wrong.

the tattoo has everything to do with it. he can be as judgemental as he wants when it comes to her tattoos when she is 30 years old and still living with her dad. his daughter went out and spent a shit ton of money on something stupid that will also make it even harder to find a job if she's trying at all as it is. op should stop supporting her. then maybe she'd get her priorities straight.

117- I never implied that I thought OP has given up on his daughter, and my comment is certainly not apathetic. Apathy implies indifference. If I was indifferent about the FML I would have no strong feelings towards it either way. I also never stated that I think OP hates all tattoos. MY interpretation of the FML led me to believe that OP felt the tattoo's design will lead her to be unsuccessful. Please take careful note of the "my" in that sentence, because it was simply my interpretation, and I am not saying everyone should agree with me on that. I agree with many of your points, and I appreciate that you obviously think before you speak/type. I do not agree with the implication that hasty thought processes for tattoos = unsuccessful lives, though. My husband has a tattoo that he got hastily and didn't put much thought into. Guess what? He's successful. The thought process behind a tattoo is not a solid predictor for future success. I do realize that the thought process behind a tattoo is similar to the thought process behind other decisions, but a bad tattoo does not seal her fate (which is, again, how I interpreted OP's feelings towards the tattoo). Also, maybe the ink DOES mean something to her. Just because it's a bit odd doesn't mean that it holds no value for her. Disagree with me all you want, as I mentioned, that's fine. I am fully aware of that possibility on this website, and this isn't the first time it's happened. However, you have no right to tell me that my opinion is "wrong". When it comes to opinions, different points of view are different, but never wrong.

148- Give up on what, exactly? I am not trying to convince anyone that my point of view is correct at this point. I'm simply standing my ground. Would you prefer that I be spineless and fake, and say something along the lines of "you're right guys! I don't know what my silly-self was thinking!"...? My opinions may not always be the same as everyone else's on this site, but I have always stood by my original viewpoint during a debate.

Kaylee, I'm not going to go into paragraphs, because this FML is extremely simple. OP thinks his daughter is going to fail because his daughter has a tattoo sleeve of POINTLESS DRAWINGS.

I don't think op cares that she got a tattoo, it's probably the fact that 1) it's a rather immature tattoo to get at 30 2) she should be more concerned about finding a job before she gets huge tattoos. I mean, no job, but has money for a sleeve, how does that work?

145- Do you really think that a 30 year old living in her mom's house, with no job, covered in tattoos that are akin to what you might find on a sheet of fake tattoos at the local CVS, is really going to be successful with her life? You can point out the exceptions here and there, but you will almost never see the most successful people in society with tattoos. Why? Because nobody wants to hire somebody with an arm covered in tattoos fit for a teenager, let alone promote them to the point they can become well off. Again, yes there are exceptions, but take a look at % of white collar workers with tattoos and % of them without tattoos, and it's not even close.

167- In general, I am an optimistic person, and I try to give people the benefit of the doubt. Even with my personal outlook, are the odds in her favor of being successful, based on where she's at in life? No. Did I ever claim they were? No. My original point, which seems to be lost in the debate, was that I personally felt that OP was being judgemental regarding the tattoo based on MY understanding of the story. Once again- that is MY opinion, and I don't expect anyone to agree. I have visible tattoos (and multiple piercings, for that matter) and I am sucessful, and I don't expect that to change. As I originally mentioned, tattoos can be covered when needed. If OP's daughter had to, she could wear long-sleeved shirts. There, problem solved. It's odd to me that you equate white collar work with success. Do you not feel that blue collar workers are successful? Regardless, I'd be interested to see those statistics. I'm not being an asshat with that question, promise. I'm always up to seeing proof that refutes my opinions; it's a part of the learning process.

170 - I don't think people are saying that one or a few tattoos ruin your chance of being successful. However, when you get a sleeve of stupid shit like OP did then chances are it will. Sure she could wear long sleeves for the rest of her life but do you really think she will? I don't based on what I read. Also I'm curious..how many visual tattoos do you have(if you don't mind me asking) ?

182- I don't mind at all. I have 3 visible tattoos. Granted they are not like the one in the story. My left wrist says Love Life, my right wrist says Be Brave, and I have a Stargazer Lily on my left foot.

I'm surprised that my pal Kyleekay is getting so many downvotes here; she's only trying to argue that people with tattoos are often judged unfairly. That's legit.

192 - Okay you keep skipping this part. In the FML, it clearly states a sleeve of meaningless retardation across OP's daughter's arm. And "your" opinion of him is that he simply doesn't like tattoos. Well this is FACT. We don't know know what OP thinks about tattoos, but we do know that OP thinks HIS daughter tattoos are quite idiotic. It says no-where that he doesn't like tattoos, but it clearly makes an objection to the tattoos that are dazzled across her arm, otherwise it wouldn't be a FML.

Bei I don't see why this has so many downvotes....I agree with this... Also, why would the MLP character be a bad thing? It's a good show. Fluttershy is best pony!

Let me guess, the pony is derpy? either way, just give her some incentive to get a job and a life. If you keep paying for everything she'll mooch of you for life.
