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,” President Obama told the Today show. “And we’ll go on YouTube and show it off as a family tattoo. And our thinking is that might dissuade them from thinking that somehow that’s a good way to rebel.” As a teenager, it is Malia’s duty to call that bluff. At the very least, America wins, and she’ll laugh about it when she’s older. Like all tattoos anyway.
