A TATTOO obsessed mum has been slammed for putting fake ink on her one year old baby.
Shamikia Morris started tattooing her son when he was just six months old. The mother, who lives in Florida, loves to decorate her child’s body. Although tattoos are temporary, most people definitely do not agree with it.
She often covers the tot, who has become well known on social media under the username NuggerWorld561, from head to toe with tattoos – placing intricate body arts on his stomach, arms, back, and legs.
Although the tattoos aren’t real, many people online have blasted the mom-of-one for covering her toddler with the designs, with some branding her a ‘bad mom.’
She claims that she doesn’t care about people criticizing her because it’s her choice and it’s about her lifestyle. The mother says that her family already accepts what she is doing with her child. “At first, my family despised me. None of them liked my tattoos, and when I started decorating Traylin’s body, they were shocked and devastated.
“When I was eight months [pregnant] I did a maternity shoot with my brothers at a tattoo shop. Her sister, Dinera, says they’ve since had a change of heart considering how many people are taken with Treylin’s appearance.
“When Shameka came up with the idea, I wasn’t down with it, I was totally against it. I did not want her to do that with him. But since I’ve seen where it could take her and Treylin, I didn’t have no issue with it because it turned out to be a positive thing,” she says.
Shameka says she’s been receiving backlash since before Trey was born.
“When I was eight months pregnant I did a maternity shoot with my brothers at a tattoo shop. And I got bullied on social media. All the comments were negative, people were saying my baby was going to be born with a whole bunch of tattoos, that he’s going to have skin poison. It was crazy,” she adds.
Now the bullying is 10 times worse. “The backlash has been horrible. It hurts my feelings because I know I’m not a bad mom, yet I get called all types of names,” she says. Trey, she says, was born prematurely and stayed in the neonatal intensive care unit for 16 days, which prevented her from celebrating his first month.
However, she says she “doesn’t care” because this is the “lifestyle” that she enjoys.
he adds: “If you’re judging someone off of a 30-second video on social media that’s your business, but what you say or think about someone isn’t going to determine what they’re going to be in the future.”
Shamekia, who has racked up more than 319,000 followers on TikTok, insists that Treylin ‘loves’ the temporary ink.
He has his own walk-in closet, which is filled to the top with outfits for the toddler, as well as over 150 pairs of sneakers.
She often accessorizes Treylin’s looks with extravagant pieces of jewelry – including gold chains and sparkling necklaces.
‘I think Treylin loves dressing up. When he sees himself dressed in the mirror he be feeling himself, he be bopping, he be dancing. I really think he enjoys it,’ she revealed.
Despite all the negative comments, Shamekia is confident that she’s a good mom to Treylin, and she has no plans on stopping with the temporary tattoos any time soon.
She concluded: ‘My opinion of being a great mom is being their cheerleader, being their go-to person, being their best friend.’
