How do i tell my family i have a tattoo

i got a large quote tattoo in mid June i move out of my house in mid September to attend school, i feel really bad keeping this information from my family mostly my mother.. i want to tell her about it because i don't want to keep on hiding it and i also want to get more. how can i bring it up? or should i just keep it hidden so i dont cause pain to my mom?

Well maybe you can not volunteer the info. But don't hide it either. Once your out your mom will be so happy to see you when you visit she may not be as upset. Or show her when your leaving and she will be too distracted with sadness that her baby's leaving the nest she won't care as much.

If you really feel guilty, then just tell them. Is your Mom really religious about it or does she just not like them? I'm sure they will get used to it over time. :)

Bring up the conversation about tattoos, ask then what they think of them, people who have them etc. then when you like ( or don't like ) where the conversation goes, then you say "We'll Good, Cause I've Already Got one!"

or you could ask your mom what was the first thing she did when she was young, that she didn't ask her mom. then after she tells you, you say "Mines A Tattoo!"

What's done is done. Just show her and get it over with. You were old enough and proud enough to get it permanently put on your body. You are certainly old enough to face Mom.

When I was 16 I got a tattoo of a red rose on my shoulder. When my mom saw it she freaked out and made me take it back.

tell your parents that you were kidnapped by some psychos who inked that on you and then left you alone, just for fun sake, and now you cannot get this thing removed.

Haha! My son got one when he went away to college, and when he came home he took me out to dinner(just the 2 of us) for my birthday, then when we got in the car, he said "um... I have something to tell you..." of course I thought the worst, so when he showed it to me, I was almost relieved. It's a little big, but too late now! Maybe you could start by talking about the quote, and how much it means to you, then tell her about the tat.
