Beware The Chancletazo: These Latino Parent Reactions To Their Kids Getting Tattoos Are Epic

It’s no secret Latino parents can be extra conservative, and any time we step out of the line — they always let us know exactly how they feel about it.

Whether their remarks are accompanied by a chancletazo (or a hairbrush if they’re feeling creative!), most of us know that Latino parents always come equipped with phrases that are equally terrifying and hilarious. These one-liners are so epic, we’re sure they come straight from the dawn of time, passed from generation to generation until we get replies like: “te voy a dar una razón para que llores en serio.”

Just like when we picked on our younger siblings as kids and our parents told us things like, “cuéntale a tu papá lo que hiciste,” getting a tattoo later in life means parents sharing all their feelings about it. Whether getting a full sleeve or just a tiny star, parents’ reactions to tattoos have no bounds.

We asked our readers what their parents said when they first saw their tattoos, and the replies did not disappoint!
