Corin and her husband are from Singapore. We talk to her about their precious new addition to the family, Chloe, and about being inked parents in Singapore. Hi Corin! Tell us more about you and your husband. How did you meet? I’m Singaporean and I live in Hougang with my husband. We met each other at our old job. Back then, he was the chef at Loof Bar and I was the cashier. It was a love at first sight for me but I didn’t show it. We eventually got closer as friends and started hanging out. We used to go for supper together after work. One day he suddenly held my hand, and that was the beginning of our romantic relationship. We have been together for 8 years now and married for 2, and we had our first baby this year. Congrats on the new addition to the family! So, how have things changed since the new baby? Chloe is a very cheerfull child. She brings laugher and happiness into our lives, and more importantly, she has made me change into a better person. I’m willing to do anything for her… Just for her!
That is inspiring Do you get stares when you are out as a family? How do you handle negative reactions to your ink? Yes we do get stares again n again, but I don’t care. People can stare all they want; all that is important to me is that I know that this is my family n that the three of us are not here to harm anyone. We are just here to enjoy ourselves together as a family and spend time with each other. We want Chloe to know that no matter what happens Daddy n Mumny will always be here for her and negative reactions should not bother her.
How would you advice parents who feel they are being judged by their ink? Don’t care about how people look at you. So what if you have tattoos? It doesn’t mean you cant have your own family, or your own life. As long as you raise your children to know what is right and what is wrong, and educate your child wisely, no other opinion matters. No one is able to judge anyone, moreover, based on their appearance. Having tattoos is something that we like. We live for our family not for those who stare at us on the street. So please don’t be affected by how others react to you.
Great advice! Thanks Corin!
