    What happened to the good old days where a woman would just have sex with the headmaster to help her son get a leg up in school? ;)

    fromt he article, it seems like it is a real tattoo. That's insane. this woman is dumb not only for that, but because she'll soon realize 10,000 bucks just doesn't go very far, particularly for a private education. Sad, sad, sad.

    or something else weird,

    I don't wanna be rude here, but she looks ridiculous with that tattoo. It's almost comical.

    at least she didn't do it for drug money or tit enlargement or something. of all the reasons to do this, your kid is one of the best. And as she said, you only live once. Plus, within a few years, they'll have totally non-scarring removal, so people that say "tattoos are forever" might be proven wrong soon.

    Dang, she'd better hope that gambling house doesn't change its URL a few times, or her forehead is gonna end up looking like a console... :p

    They do ... plastic surgery and skin grafting. But what will she have to do for the money to remove it?

    What a ****ing idiot (she is); what happened to selling your soul?

    Tattooing that on her forehead really teaches her kid that his mom's a moron; or so he'll come to find out after his tainted 'private education'. How long can he go to school for 10,000? I would assume this is only through middle or high school. What's she going to do for college?

    What school is going to let her son in now? Im sure the wouldn't want her to come to school to pick him up. Gambling nor tattoos are appropriate for children. :)

    The woman is an attention whore.
    She showed that dignity has a price of $10,000.

    Then again her child's education is a worthy thing to spend the money on. Its going to be all the funnier when he pisses away that chance.

    It also could have been worse. Remember the Bumfights guy ?

    That's disgusting.

    What kind of role model is she?
    $10,000?... that wouldn't pay for much of a private education. What is she going to sell next? Her son's forehead? Maybe she should have some more kids then she could make a fortune on foreheads? :eek: disgusting.

    To each their own. She have could have found something better to advertise than gambling. :eek:

    I think that my favorite of the body advertising was the lady that was pregnant.

    What private school only costs $10,000? I would guess that that will cover 2 years - maximum. And at $5,000 a year it probably isn't a great school. Sad.

    one thing I'm confused by is if the tattoo shop spent 7 hour trying to talk her out of it (as the article says) than why would they agree to it at all? I mean if you've spent that long trying to stop her it seems you could put your foot down and say no. :rolleyes:

    It's not the tattoo shop's job to tell her what to think. The tattoo shop owner had a right to express his/her feelings about the situation and to try to make sure that the woman was making an informed decision, but I mean if she wants the tattoo then that's her business.

    As far as all these people calling this woman stupid - she made a big time sacrifice and in the end the kid is going to remember the sacrifice itself a lot more than the fact that the tattoo is for an online gambling website.

    Average lifespan of a woman in the US: 78 years
    Current age of this lady: 30 years
    Time on earth left with a website tattoo'd on her dome: 48 years

    $10,000 / 48 years = $208.33 (repeating of course) / year

    Nice. Good move.

    Ha, classic :D

    And what happens if they get bought out and change their name?!?!?

    That is absolutely nuts - and its not like you could hide it by wearing a hat, either. And to look at that every morning in the mirror.....bleh - I'm thinking she's going to soon realize that she screwed up.

    She just could have privately gone and been a stripper for like 6 weeks at night when her son was sleeping and made the money without this ridiculous, permanent tattoo on her head.

    i'd laugh my ass off if this kid decided he didn't want to go to college.

    I would sincerely hope that she is not under some sort of contract... She sold the dome-space on eBay, and they were the highest bidders, so I dont' think so... but Holy Crap. This woman is an idiot.

    I'm not usually judgemental, and I'm a very tolerant person. The one thing that I can't stand is stupidity.
