The people in this video need to be tracked down and beaten. Mom, tattoo artist and onlooker(s) who stood by and let this child suffer and scream. If this boy isn’t removed from the mother’s ‘care’ I hope he beats her himself when he grows up.
I’ve seen this video and it took me days to get it out of my mind. The poor child getting tattooed by so called adults. I hope he gets taken away from those people and they go to jail/prison for what they put this child through. It is so disturbing!
This is most likely happening in Mexico…they are tattooing their child because child abductions are soo rampent there that it is hard to id the children once they get sold into slavery, and if lucky, are able to get free someday. Believe it or not this happens a lot more often then you think. We live in a sheltered life in the U.S.
Why do you automatically think they are in Mexico or that they are Mexicans? They aren’t even speaking Spanish! They are speaking Portuguese. Most likely they are in Brazil. Anywho these people should rot in hell!
@Josie: Ear piercings are painless, quick procedures. A tattoo is far from painless or quick. The pain would be unbearable for a small child, and a huge infection risk, especially when given by someone who is not licensed to give tattoos.
Gat: Ear piercings are not painless. A tattoo can be a lot less painful than you think and it can be quick. Being licensed means nothing except that someone with authority says you are qualified. Get some valid information to use please.
With that being said, this is sickening! However, in different cultures it is common practice.
OMG these people need to have their arms broken! WTF is wrong with them?! I love tattoos, my 5 year old girl likes the fake ones. Even if she asked there is no way in hell I’d let her get one, or MAKE her get one. That poor child!
I fell asleep getting my tattoo and it is over my spine. Getting my ears pierced hurt, and got infected four times, my tattoo itched for a couple days and then was good.
That said! different cultures have different beliefs. In Africa children are scared and tattooed. In the east the piercings are more seen it is a matter of culture. I do not believe what was done here was right, and by God I will never get that child’s screams out of my ears and I would love to smack that mother for holding the child down.
God help that women if I ever find her, this is the worst thing I have ever seen, who wants to hold that bi*tch down and make her cry. Their are plenty of good parents that would take that baby in a heart beat> I hope SS was called and they found her.
First of all,this is messed up no matter for what the reason behind it was. Second,race and country have nothing to do with this photo. So you all need to get a life and go screw yourselves..the mother and child don’t look hispanic. Unless this was done for medical or identification purposes,the mother needs to be beaten within an inch of her life and thrown in jail…along with the tatoo artist for agreeing to do it. Regardless as to why this was done,the kid will have nightmares the rest of his life.
The person who said this was Portuguese is an idiot and the people who also think these are Mexicans are idiots. Judging by the accent, these people are from the Caribbean. Not Mexico. I love how Americans think they know everything. The mother is a monster, though.
First, if the tatoo was for medical/ child abduction prevention reasons than they should have sought something else, like a tiny fake birthmark-looking tatoo on the bottom of his feet,where the skin is tougher and it won’t be seen.
And to answer the question on pierced ears, for babies it is painless, as everyone I know numbs the baby’s ear lobes with an ice cube, then use a hands-free piercing gun to shoot a sterilized starter earring into the baby’s lobe. A few baby girls have even slept through the proceedure. Why? Because piercing a baby girls ears is part of a lot of cultures, especially many African ones. It’s adult ear and body piercing that’s painful.
I find it hilarious that some people will talk about how these parents need to be tortured (which in my opinion they need to be) but yet in America they strap their baby boys down and rip off a perfectly healthy part of a baby boys body while he has no anesthesia. Both these practices are disgusting. And in all honesty so is the ignorance of some people commenting here. “They are mexicans what do you expect” Keep talking about a race/culture you know nothing about. This video is from Cuba. They a Cubans and it doesnt mean everyone in Cuba is rushing to get this done to their kids.
