President Obama revealed this morning on the Today Show how he's discouraging his daughters from getting tattoos:

“What we’ve said to the girls is, ‘If you guys ever decided you're going to get a tattoo, then mommy and me will get the exact same tattoo in the same place. And we'll go on YouTube and show it off as a family tattoo,’” the president told NBC. “And our thinking is that might dissuade them from thinking that somehow that's a good way to rebel.”
