People Freak Out About OctoMom's Tattoo
Last night I was watching the news, and one of the top stories was that "Octo-Mom" got a tattoo. OMG NO!

Yeah, this is news in the states. Pretty embarrassing. If that wasn't enough, they went on to talk about how "immature" she was behaving. What the hell is wrong with people? This lady just gave birth to octuplets and already has 6 kids (srsly...enough). Don't you think she should be able to get a tattoo? On top of that, she's already tattooed. She's just finally getting back into the game =). What I thought was funny about the whole thing was in the video is shows her freaking out thinking it's going to hurt. I've never given birth, but I would imagine that passing 8 kids through body would be WAAAAAY more painful than a tattoo of an angel on my shoulder-blade. Maybe that's just me ;)

Here's the video that shows her getting the "way too large of a tattoo for a mom" Hahaha... news anchors are such tools.

The bigger issue here, to me anyway, is the use of fertility drugs. Talk about a serious body modification. We're talking about a whole new level... body creation? But back to the point. I understand that some people need the help of science to make the little creatures, but when I hear about cases of moms having more than triplets due to these drugs, it drives me nuts. That's not something that should be printed in little writing on the pill bottle as a "possible side effect". That should be more along the lines of, "hey, it's not ready yet". Reminds me of the crazy drug commercials, "may cause anal leakage". "Wait... WHAT?!"

Picture a pretty mom, playing with her 2 perfect little kids in a sand box:

"Do you want a baby, but you're genetics are just too fubar'd? Well, take our easy to insert anal suppository and you too could have a baby! Please consult with someone obviously smarter than yourself first though. Possible side effects include having 8 fucking babies, horrible mutations, inner-womb UFC throw-downs, and your ass may get fat which will cause your boyfriend to leave you." 

Let's get the discussion started. Here are my questions to you:

1. What's your take on how news media is so quick to trash people that get tattooed?

2. What's your opinion on fertility drugs?

I hope someone sees the humor in this =)
What concerns me is the fact that someone has gone out of their way to make a website named and on there is a question, "Will Octomom lose her kids?" 'yer' or 'No'. I find that distrurbing and in very low taste.

Adam. i am making that commercial.

but to answer your questions i think it's silly that people who get there 15 minutes of fame (good or bad) always get torn down later. take for instance that one lady who got onto "Britain's got tallent" she got a make over and people are angry at her! wtF?! can't she have the right to look pretty?

and fertility drugs are just plain scary. there's plenty of chillinz in the world without making more.

Yep this is pretty darn nauseating. My boyfriend was reading this with me and just sat here saying "what the fuck" over and over. I don't get it. First of all, plenty of mothers have tattoos. If we're going to be saying that mom's shouldn't have tattoos then should only sterile women be allowed to get tattoos or does this include mothers who adopt? Its ludicrous! I'm not sure if I agree with her choices in life but guess what, its none of my effing business! The fact that she's being judged for getting a gorram tattoo (excuse my firefly language) is just... er... I'm so angry that I can't think of words.
My boyfriend is just shaking his head now.
I dunno about fertility drugs. I guess every woman should be able to have the experience of having a baby. Maybe not 8 TIMES... I mean come on, the earth is already overpopulated... I'm not going to get into that though. I just think that this is some bs that news shows are talking about just to get some viewership and publicity because they've already exhausted coverage of shirtless Obama and Swine Flu.
Oy vey.

Too large of a tattoo for a MOM!? Wonder what people must think of my back...

I think the news media is quick to trash anything they don't understand. As body modification is slowly accepted, it won't be trashed as much. I hope...

As far as the fertility drugs go, I've had friends rely on them to conceive, and thank GOODNESS they only had one baby. I just wish there was a way to regulate it, and prevent multiples of a ginormous number. Twins, fine. Triplets, can live with that. But holy cow! It's a vagina, not a clown car! I don't mean regulate as in abort the "spares" or anything in that sense... just lessen the number of eggs? Something?

I'm hoping that people who can afford to do all the fertilization stuff can afford to have that many babies. Imagine shelling out $15k for treatments, then going on welfare because all of a sudden you have 12 children in formula and diapers. I'm not knocking welfare either. :P It's just that many is a bit ridiculous. But it's not her fault... she didnt ask to be impregnated with a sports team.

When two people can't have babies, that's usually because their genes don't match and a combination of those two people wouldn't be great.
So what do we do - give them fertility drugs to make them have EIGHT babies!!??
Doctors are finally realizing that children born because of IVF or fertility drugs have more genetic defects and are more susceptible to all sorts of conditions.
Maybe people who are unable to conceive should just leave it at that, and adopt instead. There are more than enough human beings around.

She couldnt afford the kids she already had and she went and had eight more...shes a fool. Creating life when you dont have the means to support it is dumb.
Posted on April 28, 2009 (3:46pm)
I don't care how modded she is, I'm a mother and have numerous piercings. But srsly she has 14 kids oh her own? Or am I misreading? Bitch be crazy. Apologies for knowing nothing about her, I'm English so this hasn't hit our news.
Posted on April 28, 2009 (3:54pm)
Im a mom and i have tats and piercings, its sad that this story even made the new..the bigger story is how a dr. let a women who already had numerous kids use fertility drugs, when she can not afford the ones she already had. to me it just seems like her way of getting attention and free money...what crap.
Posted on April 28, 2009 (4:44pm)
The only thing that upsets me about Octomom getting a tattoo is the fact that she could have put the money she used on it in the bank or for food for her 14 children instead of accepting aid from the state. THAT is what is irresponsible and immature about her getting ink.
Posted on April 28, 2009 (5:22pm)
What angers me is this waste of flesh is spending money on a tattoo and not the two billion children she has birthed. After outright asking for donations to help take care of sich kids.
Posted on April 28, 2009 (6:48pm)
I think instead of worrying about her tattoo or going on about how she is going to fail people should be worrying about how to help her so all of her kids get the opportunities they could miss out on.

I think fertility treatment needs to be regulated alot more closely in some instances. I am the result of fertility treatment but my Mum had no chance of having children without it and it was heavily regulated when I was conceived and I'm pretty sure it still is where I live.

If she wants to get tattoos, good for her. What I'm pissed about is how my fucking tax dollars are being used to support her and her 14 brats.
Posted on April 29, 2009 (8:22am)
The woman is quite clearly insane as are the people that ok'd a mother of SIX having fertility treatment. With regards to the media trashing her in particular it was easy easy easy, stupid cow gets ink that some of you sponsered. Grrr.
Posted on April 29, 2009 (11:59am)
wow. great post. I have hated the media for years because of their reckless, predjustice news reporting. So that dosent surprise me. What is a surprise is how Octo Mom is able to leave the house and get tattoos. Her behavoir is ill and shameful, at best. Why are we glorifying her? It only encourages her...........
Posted on April 29, 2009 (4:16pm)
i remember reading somewhere that she got a dontation of sperm had her previous chillinz then decided since there were eight embryos left to have them all instead of let them die.
Posted on April 29, 2009 (6:25pm)
i think she probably initiated the news story, its clear the woman as mental health problems and is manipulating the media trying to make money from the situation.
i even read she is in talks about writing a book and a movie!!
how would that go really..... i had a messed up childhood, i got pregnant, it seemed to fill a void so i had more kids, i got obsessed with being pregnant but couldnt support all the kids i had so i hatched a plan to con a fertility person to inpregnate me with 8 babies then sell the story to anyone that will buy it and milk it for all its worth....... yeah that sounds like a riviting book/movie!!!

i think fertility drugs are an amazing invention, but this story proves how easy it is for them to be misused.
i have read stories of people who where perfectly healthy but chose to have ivf because they wanted to have twins, now i find that a bit sick, its too close to the whole designer baby theory, and its just wrong.

and as for the horror of het getting inked, i think any parent who is heavly modded has had someone judge their parently skills by their mods, its wrong and its total crap but people are dicks, we all know this!

1. people don't understand that everyone modifies themselves! shaving, waxing, teeth bleach. that shit is "normal" so it doesnt bother people i guess. like, clearly octomom has had some work - note the OBVIOUS plastic surgery....

2 - meh, i hate babies, but peeps should do what they want. you can always abort a few of them anyways! har har har.
Posted on April 30, 2009 (2:02pm)
really, she can be all modded, but she should be using that money to pay for her babies, and worry about her tat later.
Posted on May 2, 2009 (3:32am)
i agree with the majority.

could've gotten better ink tho....
Posted on May 2, 2009 (11:46am)
my god... can we please forget about this woman? sterilize her, give her children to someone a teeny bit more stable, stop writing her government checks, and move on. i'm a body piercer with 13 tattoos. i'm also a mom. anyone who thinks im not a suitable role model, has never seen me with my son. my little boy is fed, clothed, and has shelter all from money supplied by body modification. ;oP

what really surprises me is the saran wrap on her tattoo.... serious infection issue.
Posted on May 6, 2009 (4:12pm)
I don't see why people care. She is clearly a goof-ball with too many kids. Why do we waste time on her. And people that say they hate babies scare me.....
Posted on May 10, 2009 (10:24pm)
I'm upset she's living so trashy on little to no income yet she springs for a tattoo. That's the ONLY reason they should be covering that.
Posted on May 10, 2009 (11:12pm)
Tetrakaidecagon-mom (octomom is wrong she has fourteen kids....) gets the same treatment all 15min celebs get. People either like them or dont, dirt comes to the surface and shit happens.

I personally think that she should have not had fertility treatment. i'm down for right to choose etc, but seriously. It pours salt on the wounds of people who cannot have kids or even adopt..... why not go eat macdonalds of some starving kids in africa while your at it...

The tattoo 'thing' is just another way to ridicule or use as 'ammo' for whatever cause.

its all same recycled crap tabloids and chat shows love, just a different stink.

That's my thoughts anyway.

EDIT** IN FRONT OF some starving kids....
Posted on May 14, 2009 (8:09pm)
she is an idiot, and they should take AAAAALL of her kids away and she should be spayed
