I’m not a fan of body art (anyone in the military is excepted) but the reason I like this story is because it is a father trying to set an example for his kids.
Former bad boy Mark Wahlberg has really turned over a new leaf, and even without this latest news deserves kudos for turning his life around. The former drug addict claims to have been in trouble with police 20 to 25 times, even serving two years in a correction house jail.
Wahlberg, 40, has four children, Ella, eight, Michael, six, Brendan, three, and Grace, two, with wife Rhea Durham. To deter his children from getting tattooed, he recently revealed that he has taken his two eldest children along to watch him suffer as he goes through the process of erasing his tattoos.
Wahlberg spoke about his inkings last month on The Late Show With David Letterman saying, “I don’t want my kids getting tattoos.”
Told it would take eight to ten laser treatments, he has required over 30 and is still in the process of getting them removed.
He continued, “I’ve taken my two older kids to the procedure so they see how painful it is and what I have to go through.”
