Or you could just brand your child with the pertinent info.

I think this is a depends type of thing, not to mention up to individual families themselves.

I'd be worried they'd miss it. Do they routinely look for tattoos now? Especially if you had others as an adult.
I'm with the rest of you on this. It's a big NO for me.

In general no, I don't see a reason to. There would have to be a really good reason, such as an extreme medical condition and a reason why he couldn't wear a bracelet. Barring the one-in-a-million rare scenario, I wouldn't. It's an interesting idea for adults, though.

A friend's ex has diabetes, and when his blood sugar wonks out he acts like a drunk person. Stumbling, slurring, incoherent. He's been arrested for being drunk before when all he needed was some orange juice. A tattoo on his arm or something might be helpful. But not for a kid.

No...I would NEVER subject my child to a med tattoo...I feel sorry for the kids whose parents would.

Nope, not for us. I won't even microchip my pets, there's no way I'm tattooing my kids.

Oh my goodness, NO! My daughter has a food allergy, but I would never brand her with it...

I would first ask, what gives the parent the right to intrude upon their child like this? Their body belong to them and no one else. Plus, as it's been mentioned eariler, as the child ages the tatoo will distort, I think it is a very bad idea.
