NEW YORK — Teachers in New York City and Los Angeles are sharing a new tattoo for the first time on their students.
Teacher tattoos are gaining more prominence, and the trend has spawned a growing community of parents and students who have created websites, forums and even a Facebook page dedicated to the issue.
New York City’s tattoo policy says teachers can have one to three tattoos on each arm.
Teaching in the U.S. was originally created to help train and trainees in teaching, but it’s been used to help teach and train others in teaching as well.
“It’s the way to go to show support for teachers who are struggling,” said Jami Linneman, who runs a blog for teachers that has thousands of followers.
The tattoo policy states that teachers must have a tattoo or have their arm tattooed before they can teach, and it’s up to the parent to decide if their child will be given a tattoo.
For some parents, the decision is simple.
They simply want to have a teacher with their daughter or son.
Others, like Jami, don’t have an issue with having their child tattooed, but the idea of a teacher being able to have their tattoo is appealing to them.
“It means they know they can say, ‘I support you, I support you.
You’re going to be okay,'” Jami said.
Parents of students who want to get a tattoo also have the option of having their son or daughter get one, but they may have to make arrangements for it.
A New York state law allows parents to request tattoos for their children, and students can request tattoos if their parents agree.
In Los Angeles, students can get their own tattoos if they want.
There is also a tattoo policy in the New York city school district.
It says that students must have at least one tattoo on their arm before they will be allowed to take classes.
