Meet the newest official member of the Tattooed Moms Club, Mariah! She’s the mom to three beautiful kids and the first new member in 2019!! I had to take a small hiatus from this project but I’m so glad to be back at it and I’m so glad to have Mariah as part of the club!
Tell us about your kids?
I have three beautiful children one is my bonus daughter. My 7 year old boy is just one of the smartest, sneakiest kids I have ever met. He’s on the ADS also. Then my bonus daughter is 3 and she’s just a bundle full of sass and beauty! Last my youngest she is 7months old and just the missing piece to the puzzle of my life, she’s the happiest and chubbiest baby I’ve ever seen.
How do your kids feel about your tattoos?
My kids LOVE my tattoos and are always asking when I’m finishing them cause almost all of them still aren’t completed. They randomly touch them and ask about the reasons behind them.
What about your kids’ friends?
The saying I always hear from my kids friends is “why do you have a bear pooping out a rainbow?” It’s not supposed to be but it definitely looks like it ha.
What is your parenting style?
My parenting style is pretty laid back but can be strict. I believe kids should have good manners but should be able to play in the mud and have opinions of their own.
What is the biggest lesson parenting has taught you?
That’s hard. I would say the biggest lesson would be you can shape someone mold them from just what’s around them so you really have to take a look about what you do and who’s around, makes you want to be a better person for them and that’s a lesson for me.
Have you ever faced any discrimination due to being a tattooed mom? What happened?
I haven’t faced any discrimination. I’ve gotten the looks, side remarks and things like that but no one ever actually coming up to my face.
Tell us about your tattoos. Who did them and do you have a favorite one?
I have a total of 12 tattoos, two which are going to be a sleeve and a half sleeve are not currently done yet. I have the start of a Harry Potter sleeve because I’m a total nerd. The half sleeve I started for my family. I have a plumeria flower I got while in Hawaii. I have three matching tattoos, two are with my best friends and one is with my mommy. My legs have a quote with pictures from the ugly duckling book. An arrow down my spine, white ink on my wrist that says I’m enough. A weeping willow with a buffalo on my side. My son’s hand and foot print with his name and date of birth also.
Tori from Catch 22 did the start of the half sleeve and the weeping willow.
Justin from Sudden Urge did my ugly duckling piece.
Angell from C & L did my arrow, wrist and start of the HP sleeve.
My favorite one would have to be my son’s.
How old were you when you got your first tattoo and what was it?
I was 18 when I got my first tattoo and it was my son’s hand and foot print with his date of birth.
What is your idea of “me time”?
My idea of “me time” is sitting in the bath ALONE with a good book or going to hang out with the girls and let loose.
Would you rather go into the past and meet your ancestors or go into the future and meet your great-great grandchildren?
I would rather go into the future and meet my great-great grandchildren for sure!
