‘Teen Mom’ Kailyn Lowry Gets An Expensive Tattoo

Thu, December 15, 2011 3:38pm EDT by 37 Comments

Kailyn, you said you don’t have money for diapers or rent, so WHY are you spending money on an expensive tattoo!?!

Teen Mom 2 star Kailyn Lowry has talked openly about her money problems — including struggling to afford diapers for Isaac or rent on an apartment — but in a new bonus scene from MTV, we see her spending money on a large, pricey tattoo! She says it’s for Isaac, but wouldn’t he be better off using that money toward things he actually needs?

On average a tattoo costs at LEAST $40, and that’s the minimum price for a small sized tattoo! Kailyn’s goes across her back and features the quote, “To the world you are one person, but to one person you are the world.” A custom tattoo of that size most likely costs $100 at the very least! That’s a lot of money for somebody on a small income like Kailyn!

In the clip, we see Kailyn go to Sacred Art Tattoo Parlor in Nazareth, Pennsylvania. “Are you excited?” Kailyn’s friend asks. “I’m more nervous than anything,” she replies.

As she gets the tattoo, Kailyn is clearly in pain. “I’ll never get another tattoo,” she says. “Definitely worse than having a baby.”

In the end, she loves her new tattoo. But was it worth it?

UPDATE: HollyBaby.com spoke with the tattoo artist  who did Kailyn’s tattoo and learned that the tattoo was a present from Sacred Art Tattoo Parlor. “As a mom, she really doesn’t have a ton of money, obviously,” Stacey Donadio told us.

Kailyn’s tattoo normally would cost about $100 to $150, depending on the detail of the work, Stacey added.

Kailyn was very grateful for the gift. “She didn’t expect it to be free,” Stacey said. “She was really easy going, very friendly. She’s a very, very nice girl.”

Maybe a friends’ money would be spent directly on items for kid, not a selfish, stupid mother.

I think it’s halarious how in the article that you state that Kail didn’t pay for the tattoo but then later you ask the retarded question of what we think of her spending? Really are you that retarded, that you don’t understand your own writing? You’re pathetic.

in the article it clearly states that it was done for FREE… so why the hell are you guys asking “what do YOU think of Kailyn’s spending? Should she have saved her money instead of getting a tattoo?” This site is obviously TRASH!!

She said it was free on her fb page. I CAN believe that b/c I’ve gotten a few for free at tattoo parlors myself. If u know someone that works there then yes u can get a tattoo for free. I have one that goes from shoulder to shoulder on my chest and I got it for free. U just have to know the right ppl. So don’t judge unless u know the FULL story!

I thought the teen moms got money for doing the show? And if so/if not.. It’s none of ANYONES business what she spends her money on. Even if she says on national tv that she needs money to take care of her son. Why can’t she treat herself!? Is that so wrong!?

Sorry but you need to get your facts straight. Or do you prefer to make it up as it fits the pics you can snap. Get a REAL journalism job.

I agree they definitely have money it wold be illegal to not pay them for such a popular show. Although I get that they must portray to teens the struggles with being a teen mom and the financial burden, but come on I have seen plenty of articles of the extravagant things these girls buy. The whole teen mom empire is pathetic and they are extorting these poor teens and these girls just see the fame and dollar amount so they do not realizes the danger they put themselves and there kids in while being in the public eye. I will never watch these shows!!!

Get the facts before you post stories. So dumb. Leave the girl alone. It’s people like you that bring about unnecessary attention to them.

There’s nothing wrong with it. 1st of all you don’t know what the cost was, or if it was a gift, ect. Secondly, who are you to judge? As a young mom I know that no matter what you do people will judge you. No matter what as long as my daughter is clothed, well fed, loved, and happy, what I do with my money is no ones business. She deserves to be happy and treat herself to something every now and then.
