The next tattoo I’m planning is a rather explicit Tom of Finland-style piece on my leg. However, because I have a kid, and do occasionally go out in public, I have to talk to a lawyer about it first… If I show it in public, can I be charged? It’s not like you can walk around in public showing people gay porn. What if my daughter sees it? Could I be charged as a child abuser?
The explicit and I guess blasphemous pinup tattoo on the right was done by Jeff at Permanent Images in Ottawa. The bearer tells me that he’s gotten some grief for it in public, but I was wondering if he could actually be charged as I described above. I don’t see how it’s any different from walking around in public showing people erotica?
