Kiddie "Tramp Stamps"???

sign up for the momlogic newsletter Tweet This

As if it isn't already difficult enough to keep kids dressing (and looking) like ... well ... kids, Toys R Us has added some fuel to the fire.

In addition to selling gumballs and stickers in their vending machines, the stores now also sell lower-back temporary tattoos, sometimes known as "tramp stamps." Yes, for a mere 50 cents your li'l girl can look like she's all grown up--and then some. Would you let your daughter wear a temporary lower-back tattoo?

Really? I think that there are some REALLY obsessive and controlling parents commenting on this article. I mean its a TEMPORARY freakin’ tattoo, does anybody know how easily those things come off. Its not even like henna that lasts a few weeks. That crap comes of in like three or four days!I know plenty of teenagers that have REAL tattoos and they are not “corrupting their youth” like you crazies obviousally think they will. All im sayin’ is that you people should just chill, its going to come off. And I promise a little temp. will not corrupt your child.

you people crack me up….they wont become a tramp because of a temporary tattoo…it’s all in how the parents raise them….I’m 14 by the way and i actually have a real “tramp stamp”…i hate that term though because I’m not a tramp…I’m a straight A student, have nice friends, and I’m not a tramp…People need to lighten up a bit and get a life and stop judging people.

im speaking as a mum and a kid (im a 16yr old mum) those tattoos wash off!! and yes it is up to them where on there body they put them, but its up to us as parents how we let our children dress when they go out. i hav 3 tattoos but only coz each of them has meaning to me. my brother always had the fake tattoos, hes 18 now and doesnt have a single tatt. and a tramp stamp isnt wat will turn ur child into a tramp. its wat they watch, read and hear about at skool that will do that to them. as parents u need to teach them wats wrong and wats right

the sexualization of children began decades ago. some people have this pollyannaish view of kids being like they were in the 50s. kids aren’t like that anymore. they’re a product of their environments. people let their kids listen to britney spears, watch tv and movies filled with sex (not to mention the availability of internet porn), let them dress like prostitutes… and can’t figure out why kids are having sex in 4th grade! Duh!

This post was very well written, and it also contains many useful facts. I enjoyed your distinguished way of writing the post. You have made it very easy for me to understand. just stepped out of a Terminator movie, with a Bluetooth cellphone headset clipped to the ear, and talking into thin air, pretending it is the most natural thing in the world, not to mention ultrachic; perhaps they don’t realize that they look like those early adopter cell phone enthusiasts from all those years ago.

This is a good subject to talk about. Sometimes I fav stuff like this on Redit. This article probably won’t do well with that crowd. I will be sure to submit something else though.

Nice information. Nice and fun reading. There is a single opinion to offer about t-shirts.

Greetings : )
Why is it that people (society generally) still pre-judge people who have tats. girls especially?
I’m a 26 year old F, have got 10 tats, lots of which can’t be noticed on my everyday travels. 5 - 6 in the summer are pretty much constantly on display. I don’t work for attention and I have a loving boyfriend WITH NO TATTOOS .I get the impression that numerous people believe that tattooed people are blind, once we get stared at, even if we return a glance people continue staring. When will society change?

like get real, I`m 14 year old and I just want to say that as I grow my parents had no prob. with anything thats not permanent and I had my fill of it. and now as I was never allowed to make anything that stays, the thing I want the most is a another hole in my ear. at the same time I want no real tattoos what so ever. and I dont see whats sooo wrong with these temp. ones? they come off. and but them on a arm then, child will just have it done and will get it over with. stop being so tight minded. no one is hurting them with that.
