US President Barack Obama has come up with an unusual way of dissuading his daughters from getting inked.

He said on NBC’s Today show on Wednesday that if his daughters ever get tattooed, then he and his wife Michelle, would also get the exact design inked on their bodies in the same place and will show it off on YouTube as a family tattoo.

He said that his and his wife’s thinking behind this is that it might dissuade their daughters Malia, 14, and Sasha, 11, from thinking that somehow that was a good way to rebel during their teenage years. ANI
