Not at all. Ultimately, yes the final decision lies with you. Mums will always be controlling to some degree; it is in their nature. I don't think she is at all worried about the financial outlay of a tattoo. You are to her, her child. And there is nothing you can ever do to change that. We all have different perspectives and I respect that. In my opinion though, after all is said and done, I would rather bring my Mum some smiles.
