If there’s one thing Latina moms are super strict about, it’s about tattoos – which is why this 25-year-old son got into big trouble when he showed his mom his arm tattoo. In response to the video, a lot of people on Facebook started to share their own stories about tattoos… specifically, about how their mom reacted when they saw them. So if you’re looking for a little entertainment, check out these hilarious stories.
ICYMI, here’s a 25-year-old getting smacked by his mom after she saw his tattoo:

To hundreds of people, this was relatable AF.
One of the first responses was from a guy who, like Sergio, was also 25 years old.
And would also be deemed a disappointment – even though he’s in med school – for his tattoo.
And if you thought 25 was old, this 42-year-old woman admitted that she’s STILL afraid to show her parents her tattoo.
Age ain’t nothin but a number.
Soooo till what age do you have to wait to be able to show your parents your tattoo?? 57? 73? 85?!
Or you can just hide your tattoos from them for the rest of your life?
This guy is over how conservative Latino parents can be.
But the rule is, if you still live under you parents’ roof, then you have to follow their rules.
And the more strict your parents are, the more they will try to scare you out of getting a tattoo.
And they’re usually right as was the case with Viviane.
But if there’s anything that should REALLY scare you about getting a tattoo, it’s this story:
Okay, these stories are getting intense…
Going to need some more popcorn for this.
One mom even tried to ERASE her daughter’s tattoo.
I guess she thought it was one of those fake 50¢ tattoos.
Meanwhile, this mom wished her daughter tattooed her butt instead.
Yes, her mom really did say, “You should’ve gotten your ass tattooed.”
Even if it’s your younger sibling getting the tattoo, you can expect a beating.
This mom wasn’t joking around.
Damn. This girl got DOUBLE the trouble.
After reading all of these stories, this guy is starting to rethink his decision about getting a tattoo. ?
Maybe next year. LOL
Sure it might sound fun and cool at first, but think about how your mom is going to react when she sees that ink.
Abuelas and mamas are the best. They’re wise, fierce, cranky, and, if you’re lucky, they are so loving. That is why it’s so important to pay them the respect they’ve earned, while also celebrating their incredible life. People should honor their grandparents each year as if it’s their last — and in a way that they’d love. In 2019, there’s no denying that they delivered!
Here’s a look at all of the abuelas and mamas who killed it in 2019.
This abuela who did a Mariachi howl after getting surprised on her 93rd birthday
This mom who hosted a job fair for her kids to teach them about life.
One mom’s Facebook post went viral after she shared that she hosted a makeshift job fair for her children after they kept asking for a higher allowance. “My children continue to ask for a new cell phone, an allowance, and to go places,” the mother, Shaketha Marion McGregor wrote in her Facebook post. “Yesterday I told them that I’ve heard their requests and that I’ll have a surprise for them today when they get home from school. SURPRISE!!! It’s a whole hiring event. If you want it, work for it, earn it!” And yes, she even had an in-home credit union (wait, what even is that? These kids are about to be ready for when #adulting hits them). McGregor’s Facebook post has already gotten over 212K likes, 35K comments, and over 130K shared on the social media platform.
This mom who still crushes on the father of her kids after all of these years.
Earlier this year in May, Rocio Andujo tweeted about her parents’ love story. The 21-year-old from Texas shared that her mom and dad, Rosalia and Robert, have been together for 27 years. Like any good romantic drama, their love affair started with friction. Dad, the playboy of the block, was head over heels for mom, who knew better than to give the player any play — until she did. “My mom always knew my dad was a ladies’ man & wouldn’t really take any girl serious so she always rejected him… because she didn’t want to be just another girl on his list (her words),” Rocio, who works as a server while attending college, said, according to BuzzFeed. “After a year & months of my dad chasing after my mom & trying to get a chance with her she finally gave him a chance since she saw that he kept insisting and insisting even after she would reject him.”
Apparently, her pops was sprung, and everyone around them took notice. “Everyone could see how in love my dad was with my mom and everyone would get surprised because they had never seen my dad so in love with a girl before,” Rocio wrote. But Robert wasn’t the only one all heart-eyes in the relationship. Rocio discovered something recently that proves that her mom has been equally enamored all these years: a collection of all the flowers that Robert gave Rosalia during all the years they were boyfriend and girlfriend. “No one knew my mom had kept those flowers. She also still has the first bouquet of roses he gave her,” Rocio said.
Selena will forever be in our hearts no matter what anyone says. She blessed the world and us with her amazing Tejano music and truly lived as la reina. She might have been killed in 1995, but her memory lives on in our heart. There are also a few people who keep Selena’s memory alive via tattoos. How she felt about tattoos? We might never know but these fans are putting her on their bodies for life and they seem totally fine with the idea. Here are 25 Selena tattoos celebrating la reina.
That iconic movie title font is instantly recognizable.
The addition of Selena standing on top of it in her purple jumper is nice touch to really drive it home. But is it so amazing that that font is directly tied to that movie and our reina.
This iconic photo will never be old.
That is one expensive way to pay tribute to Selena, for sure. Just a regular, little Chinese character will run you close to $50 so we can only imagine how musch this rendition of the photo cost.
Nothing like some simple song lyrics to keep the posers at bay.
True Selena fans will be able to spot this tattoo coming from a mile away and what it truly means. You are probably singing this song to yourself right now, aren’t you?
Give her that virgen glo-up.
That’s right. There is nothing wrong with paying her the ultimate tribute and canonizing her. Who can argue that she is not among the angels after her tragic death.
Why not get the most recognizable lyrics on your body?
This is so damn adorable. The use of the rose to let you know without a doubt that this is definitely about Selena Quintanilla-Perez.
Minimal line work can tell a very strong story.
To most people this will just look like a rose but to a true Selena fan, this is everything. She loved roses and a touching way to remember her is to get a simple (or large) rose in remembrance.
Can’t forget about those Dinos, yo.
Selena became a name in her own right but it was because of Los Dinos that she started that climb into stardom. You should never forget the people that got you to where you are.
Turn one of her photos into a glam shot.
There is nothing wrong with tweaking her photos just a bit. It is actually a way to flatter the original since it now has a new life.
You are never too old to dig some cartoons.
This is eeeeeverything. From the sparkles to the color purple to her super cool hair. How are more people not in love with this take on Selena and her final concert?
Just the first name is enough.
Very few people have been able to reach the status that they are only known by one name. Others include Cher and Madonna. Seems like Selena is in good company.
Make it a little artistic by interpreting a lyric.
If you don’t know, that comes from “Como La Flor” hence all of the flowers over the phrase. This is such a cool idea that I might have to go out and get the same tattoo.
Día de los Muertos realness for the late queen.
Anything for Selena indeed. Some might think this is offensive but those people don’t know Mexican culture. This is how you represent loved one’s lost in the land of the dead.
On the nose tattoos are not bad.
“Como La Flor” wrapped around a rose is super literal but super classic. Got to love this take because it is probably exactly what she’d like.
Make her more of a pop culture icon.
Lotería meets Selena. We all know that La Sirena is known for her beauty and singing. Seems like exactly what we remember Selena for so…
Did we already mention Día de los Muertos?
Doesn’t matter because it is that awesome. This is what you do when you want to remember Mexican and Mexican-American loved ones when they pass.
Song titles can make the best tattoos.
We all know the significance of Apt. 512. There is a chico in there and we need to learn everything we can about him because he is the chico.
Selena adjacent tattoos are just as awesome.
It doesn’t have to be an image of the actual singer to be a touching tribute. This little tattoo of the car that saved a stranded Selena is so awesome and super relevant to her memory.
Get a pin-up Selena because why not.
This is another iconic look from the incredible singer. Why not make it more modern by giving it a pin-up feel?
The Selena fan dog whistle for the ages.
She was the biggest fan of pizzas and Coca-Cola. She was even a spokesperson for Coca-Cola so it is really a good tribute to the late-singer.
Quote her dad if you want to make a real splash.
No one will ever forget this moment in the movie when her father is totally blindsided with the super forward and progressive outfit.
This is Selena if she was going to Coachella.
Would she really go to Coachella? Probably. Selena did like dancing and listening to live music. After all, she made her start singing at fairs and festivals.
Honor her long overdue makeup line.
It sold out so quickly you probably never got to get your hands on any of it. The fact that it sold out before you could buy it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t honor it.
Zombie Selena might be a bit much.
However, who are you to tell someone how they can honor someone? Maybe they love zombies and Selena so this is the perfect homage.
Make Selena’s wax statue a tattoo.
Talk about meta. Rather than getting a tattoo of a real photo of Selena, you choose to get a tattoo of a wax statue based on a photo of the singer you are so in love with.
Juggalo Selena it kind of out there.
Hard to get behind something that seems to be way too much for any Selena fan to fully support.
