Hi I'm new to this support group. I have a couple questions. I am a mom of 2 boys and I also have full sleeves. In the summertime, I wear short sleeve shirts and tank tops. I don't dress trashy or anything. However, when in public with my boys I find I get a lot of stares. I understand that having been covered in tats is like asking for people to stare and I've come to expect it almost. But a lot of the times, it seems people are passing judgment on my parenting skills because of my tattoos. My kids are very well-behaved ( for the most part =), their teachers comment on their use of good manners. I know I am a good mom. But I get a little irritated that there is this stigma that people with a lot of tattoos are bad people or bad parents. Any suggestions for nosy people who are quick to pass judgment? Any clever remarks to dish out?

I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
