    So my dad saw my tattoo on my back this morning im 20 years old i got it when i was 17 now hes mad at me and my mom for never telling him and i just think its ridiculous. He told me not to talk to him and that he wasn't going to do anything for me ever again. Its a small religious symbol on my back its not that big of a deal.. anyway what would you guys do i know there's some older people here who have contributed good advice in the past...


    thanks

    Not knowing you or your family makes it hard to offer advice.

    Give your dad some time. He's probably more upset with your mom for not telling him than he is with you, though. You are an adult now; just try not to make a big deal out of it. And don't bring it up again.:eek:

    I think, given some time, he'll get over it. It was probably just a knee-jerk reaction.

    So what is this seemingly innocuous "small religious symbol"?

    Maybe that is what has gotten his knickers in a twist.

    Fer goodness sakes. You're 20 years old.
    Your father sounds like the "child" here.

    :rolleyes:

    He's probably upset because it's a tramp stamp.

    just give it some time, and then just try to talk to him. I'd stay away for a few days and let him vent.

    On a side note i have 2 tattoos and they are pretty big on my back that i never told my father about. But he doesn't live with me and i never see him. So i kinda know what you mean.
