Mark Wahlberg is teaching his kids a thing or two about tattoos. Don’t get them! In order to dissuade his kiddos from indulging in a tattoo or two, he took his kids with to watch him get his tattoos removed!
Wahlberg told the Today show that he decided to get rid of his six or seven tats before he started shooting The Fighter back in 2010 and he took his kids with him to watch the painful removal of the tats! Mark told the Today show, “(All the tattoos) have meaning to me, but it’s both personal and professional. I don’t want my kids getting tattoos. And I wanted them to be (removed) by the time I did The Fighter because putting make-up on and covering them up has always been a pain in the butt. I’ve taken my two older kids to the procedure so they see how painful it is and what I have to go through.”
I’m sure that was an eye opener for those kids!
