I don’t know how many tattoos I have on my body, I stopped counting a long time ago. But let me count how many my daughter has on her tiny little frame, 1…2…0! Yes, zero because she is only five and I’m not insane. Believe it or not, there is at least one insane dad in Georgia. His name is Eugene Ashley.
In addition to insane, 26 year-old Ashley was drunk when he got the initials DB, short for Daddy’s Boy, tattooed on his 3 year-old son’s shoulder back in 2009. Ashley, or “Stonner” as his friends call him, got off with a $300 fine and probation.
There is a litmus test to tell you whether or not you are old enough to have children. If you think you are ready to procreate, you and your partner must sit down and really get honest with yourselves. Ask yourselves this, “Do we want a RAD tattoo for our little peanut?” If you answer yes, you are too young, if even just in mind, to have children.
Couple thoughts. First, do you use the initials DB ever? When you do, are you referring to a daddy’s boy? The initials DB are reserved for a select few and I assure you they do not stand for daddy’s boy.
I bet you this DB didn’t intend for those initials to represent what he proclaimed they did either. Furthermore, which would serve a better purpose, $300 fine or rehab? Does $300 even cover the cost of toilet paper in the courthouse?
