Holding down your kid to get a tattoo isn't exactly considered bonding ...
Parents aren’t always perfect. In fact, first-time moms and dads generally walk in the dark during their first year of raising their minis. Because, let’s face it, parenting is a tough job. But somewhere amongst the community of legal guardians there is a common understanding that raising children includes making sure they’re kept safe from harm and remain alive.
These parents, however, missed the memo and are forcing their kids to grow up too quickly. They’re skipping pre-school and heading straight to the tattoo parlor.
Warning: This might make you angry
Somewhere in Havana, Cuba there is a poor kid who’s been branded and scarred for life. Literally.
This photo was snapped at a tattoo parlor where a mother decided that instead of learning his ABC’s, her son should be getting them inked on his skin. The poor kid is terrified, being forced down despite his efforts to wriggle away as he prepares to get penned with permanent ink.
Parenting isn’t for everyone
It’s pretty apparent that some people just shouldn’t be parents, but it becomes even more evident when situations like this get publicized.
The child seems to be writhing in pain and complete agony, but instead of coming to his rescue, his parents are the perpetrators who are making him endure this painful rite of passage that should be only for consenting adults.
Whose idea was this?
Whose idea was it for this small child to undergo such a painful procedure at such a young age… and why?!
Viewers were just as outraged as this little boy is at his parents careless and cold decision. Someone protested with, “This is clearly cruelty, and if it were the US, the parents would be brought up on abuse charges. What the hell is wrong with these people?”
