‘Teen Mom’ Kailyn Lowry Gets An Expensive Tattoo

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.”
