(Processed with Florabella's Halo and BW Film Actions in PSE 7. I reduced the opacity of the B&W for a different effect on a few.)

I do not advocate tattoos for children, but pokey picked this up at the theater and put it on all. by. herself! It wasn't until I was going through the pics that I realized just how gangster she looked and I had to giggle just a little. What is your take on fake tats for kids?

  1. These are lovely! The fourth photo is my favorite. It looks like you caught her in a moment, all by herself. Plus, the bokeh is killing me in the most delightful way! :)
    Let the Wordless Wednesday craziness begin...

  2. How cute. I don't like fake tats either because they look terrible after 2 days but my kids do so I let them wear them.

  3. I like that gangsta look! My 4yo is into fake tats already. I think it's fun!

    ReplyDelete
  4. Great images, I like the effect.
    Not a very great admirer of tattoos, but kids do.

  5. These are great! Your daughter is just beautiful...tattoo and all. :) Thinking of taking my son to the park once he gets back from camp. He just LOVES tire swings. Is always asking for one.

  8. Funny, I saw the first photo and I totally looked beyond the person, to what she was on. I was just thinking about those spinning playground rides wondering if they still exist anywhere. Sort of happy to see that they do! :)

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  13. awesome pics of your gal and her gangsta tat;0. Too cute!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Totally gantsta! ;) I love the one on the merry go round. One of my favorites from the playground even though I was injured on one as a kid!

    ReplyDelete
  15. those are very sweet pictures! I think tatoos for kids are fun. Long as you tell them how good it is that they wash off and how they might not like a real one that they cannot LOL

    but my husband has a tattoo, so we can't really talk....LOL!!

    I love the light in this photos, amazing and so pretty!

    ReplyDelete
  16. I love the coloring of the last photo of your daughter especially!

    My son likes the rub on tatoos and I find them no big deal... after all, they wash off in a day or two. LOL!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Beautiful! I have no problem with fake tats on children - they can be removed :)

    ReplyDelete
  18. I dont like fake tattoos on kids for the most part. Some are cute and still look ok after a few days but I have seen some young girls with them across the small of their back, or upper thigh.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I love the actions you applied to these photos. They really set that gansta feel!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Alicia, these are all kinds of awesome! I love the processing... just beautiful!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Beautiful pictures! I love the way you altered the color.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Love these. Your pictures are simply breathtaking.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Lovely pictures. The tat is totally gangsta. And very cute. LOL

    ReplyDelete
  24. she is so photogenic!! the photo of her on the tube looking at you is great!!

    ReplyDelete
  25. She does look gangster. LOL. Cute photos. I really like the processing you did on them. They look great.

    ReplyDelete
  26. The processing on these pictures is just beautiful. So pretty.

    yeah, I prefer my daughters to not wear around those tattoos, but it isn't a huge deal so if they do they do.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Fun pics! And fake tats don't bother me. Now that I have a teenage daughter, that seems like truly the most minimal of issues. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  28. she is bad ass :) My 5yo LOVES fake tattoos. I'm much happier with that than a real one :)

    ReplyDelete
  29. I am not a fan of tattoos either but my son has been known to sneak a few fake ones on every now and then!

    Great shots-very cute!

    Thanks for having me today!

    Best wishes,
    Natasha.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I just have to say this, "Word to her Mutha." Still some good shots!

    ReplyDelete
  31. My 5 yr old son is obsessed with Tattoos right now. if it's not a water rub on one... he's drawing on himself. :) it's just a phase right.... right??! :)

  33. I love love love these and was scrolling down getting ready to ask you if you processed them with any actions and then you went and answered my question before I even asked it! xxoo

    ReplyDelete
  34. She is so cool and awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Fun photos. She is so beautiful.

    ReplyDelete
  36. those are some fantastic and unusual shots! I love how the tattoo is "featured" in the photos while we still get to see your beautiful girl.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Great shots. I am not really fond of fake tattoos, but the girls have already had some Buffalo Bills tattoos. I'd prefer flowers and such

    ReplyDelete
  38. That is the second pic I have seen today of a girl with a tough tattoo. Fun shots!
    I am not a fan of fake tats on kids either, If I let my kids wear them, it must be small and it goes on their hand. Gets washed off faster that way.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Love the last one, and definitely gangsta :)

  40. The third shot is real gangsta:)

    ReplyDelete
  41. haha these are great! My 4 year old loves fake tattoo's. And she knows how to put them on by herself. Usually on her shins :/ lol
    I do have a cute photo of my little man naked with a Thomas the Tank tattoo on his shoulder :D

    ReplyDelete
  42. You know I have never really thought about it, but I don't see anything wrong with them... better than the real thing anyway!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Beautiful photos! My kids love tattoos, too. And they especially like pirate and dinosaurs tattoos. I think almost every kid loves tattoos.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Nice photos and well shot, the tattoo suits her

    Have a great day :-)

    ReplyDelete
  45. Ah, such cute pictures!
    And the tattoo suits her, don´t you think?
    But since I´ve got lots of ink myself, my stand on tattoes is a quite positive one, obviously ;)

    ReplyDelete
  46. I love how children assume the role when they play 'dress up'. My son went to school today in a flight suit and was rather serious in all the photos I took of him. And your daughter has that cool, rock'n'roll attitude in these photos. Great photo shoot.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Wonderful photos, I like the tone and texture, fun portraits in a very natural, excellent.

    ReplyDelete
  48. She looks so tall for 9! Great shots!

    ReplyDelete
  49. Great photos! I don't like tattoos but I think the fake ones on kids are relatively harmless.

    ReplyDelete
  50. I love these photos. They're so candid and fun!

    ReplyDelete
  51. Love the merry go round, especially with a friend or two!

    ReplyDelete
  52. Great pics. I'm a new follower and I can't wait to take a peek around your site. p.s. my kids get into the fake tattoos also...my rule: no skulls ;)

    ReplyDelete
  53. Beautiful pictures! I used to love tired swings as a child. Brings back nice memories :) Happy Wednesday!

    ReplyDelete
  54. I love how happy she looks all the time. I've got no beef with the fake tats! As long as they aren't putting the naked girl silhouette on them, I'm good!

    ReplyDelete
  55. She is adorable, even in gangsta mode! ;) Princess Nagger likes dinosaur or dragon fake tattoos - since they don't last too long, I don't mind so much. ;)

  56. I'm totally giggling that she's trying to be all hard core! Ha!

    ReplyDelete
  57. WOW- these came out great! I love the processing on them. Beautiful Alicia!

    I usually don't mind the tattoo's as long as we don't have somewhere important to go. They wear off fast. Fortunately my kids don't find them too often- so it's not something I really have a strong feeling about.

    ReplyDelete
  58. I have to say, she is a pretty cute Gangsta chick, lol! I love the one of her in the swing flashing her 'peace' sign.. too cute!

    We recently had tatts at a party and they were a hit - I think my girls think of them more as 'stickers'. They are a mess to get off!!!

    ReplyDelete
  59. Washable or otherwise removable tats give kids a opportunity for self expression without permanently disfiguring them.

    ReplyDelete
  60. She looks too sweet to be gangsta!

    ReplyDelete
  61. Beautiful pictures - and just the right amount of attitude :)

    ReplyDelete
  62. I think fake tats are cute. Just like your gangsta!

    ReplyDelete
  63. I love the photos; it's a joy to see a 9 year old still being a little kid. :)

    I caught a movie with a friend and she teased that she should take a couple of those tattoos home to her kids. They are rather large! I suggested she wait until after VBS was over this week to apply them. That said, I was joking... I would never judge a parent or a kid for temporary tattoos. I loved the ones in Bazooka gum when I was little!

    ReplyDelete
  64. Great shots! Love your Gangsta'!

    ReplyDelete
  65. What a cute gangsta!

    Tire swings are the best.

    ReplyDelete
  66. She gave me a little giggle too. I think the 3rd one is my favorite. She's such a cutie. My kids love the fake tats. I have no issue with them (but then I have a couple of tats myself, and so does my hubs.)

    ReplyDelete
  67. These pics are great. I liked you on facebook! Hope you have an awesome day!

  68. My 3 & 6 yr. old both love wearing fake tattoos. I think it's fine since they don't get to wear them that often and it's all innocent to them. Great pics of your daughter. :)

    ReplyDelete
  69. My 5 year old is obsessed with tattoos. Might as well let them embrace their tattoo-tendencies now...rather than at age 18 ;) love those pix!

    ReplyDelete
  70. I love it - the tattoo and the attitude... :) Those look amazing!

    ReplyDelete
  71. Love the gangsta attitude! She is so cute ...love the 'tude!

    ReplyDelete
  72. gotta love the sass of that age :D

    ReplyDelete
  73. Gorgeous photos! I love the fifth one so much, wish I could get one of my daughter like that! I don't mind fake tattoos, they're so much fun!

    ReplyDelete
  74. Love the black and white images.
