Michelle Obama And Barrack Obama Explains Why They No Longer Stop Their Daughters From Getting Tattoos

Michelle Obama, former first lady of the United States, has made it clear that she and her husband, Barack Obama, no longer prevent their daughters from getting tattoos.

Michelle claims that her children’s attitudes toward self-expression have changed since her time in the White House, and that the current generation of her children is more bold than her generation.

Speaking during an appearance on The Kelly Clarkson Show, Obama said;

“We need to create a broader definition of who’s American, who counts, what beauty is,”

“It only helps our kids. We don’t know who they’re going to become and we want to make sure there’s a space for them whoever they choose to be.”

Kelly agreed, echoing the same sentiment. “Why limit them?”

Michelle nodded. “It shouldn’t be politicized. Most kids who are wearing tattoos and piercings, they’ve got long nails — their value system is about individuality,” she said.

Kelly chimed in, reflecting on how quickly the value system has evolved. “But back in the day, tattoos was like, so bad,” she said.
