Our newest official member of the Tattooed Moms Club is Jen S. She’s a single momma to two boys that’s living her best life and making great memories for them to look back on. I’m so glad to have her as part of the club!
Where are you from?
I grew up as an army brat so all over but, spent most of my childhood in Fayetteville, North Carolina. I currently live in San Antonio, Texas.
Tell us about your kids?
I have two boys, ages 11 and 6. The oldest is intelligent and brainy and the youngest is full of energy!
How do your kids feel about your tattoos?
The boys thought it was cool. My first tattoo is of their thumb prints to make a heart. My youngest loves the idea so much that he refuses to wash off his temporary tattoos so he can be like mom. lol
What is your parenting style?
I’m a single momma. So, the parenting style is co-parenting. We work hard and play hard. I try to do something fun with them each week I have them. We go to museums, amusement parks, main event, the beach, baseball games, movies, etc. We play board games and card games.
What is the biggest lesson parenting has taught you?
Patience and compromise. Everything changed when the divorce happened. Having the boys all the time to half the time and making sure parenting was still the same when they leave the house and once they come back. That is a huge lesson of patience and compromise.
Have you ever faced any discrimination due to being a tattooed mom? What happened?
I have never face discrimination but my mom didn’t like the idea that I got tattoos lol. I explained to her that nowadays tattoos are more trendy and mainstream than in the past.
Tell us about your tattoos. Who did them and do you have a favorite one?
I have three tattoos. One is of my boys thumb prints shaped into a heart. Second one is of the year I was born with a copyright symbol. The third one is an infinity sign with birds on the right and an elephant on the left. I have two sisters and those are their favorite animals. The next tattoo is my boys’ constellations around the heart.
How old were you when you got your first tattoo and what was it?
I have gotten my tattoos all this past summer, lol. So the age of 36. I guess you could say the mid life crisis hit, lol.
What is your favorite hobby?
My favorite hobby is photography and taking tons of pictures of my kids. I try to make sure I take a picture a day. I have done this for over a decade now.
You’re a new addition to the crayon box, what would the name of your colour be and how would you describe it?
I love the Tiffany blue color but make it with my name instead. So Jen and joy because that color brings me joy!
