He wants to be just like mommy.

When a 4-year-old wanted tattoos that looked just like his mom’s, mom gave him the full tattoo experience.

People could not get enough of Korrin JB and her son Coleman after seeing Coleman’s decked out kiddie-style “tattoo parlor.” The wholesome video quickly amassed 4.5 million views and got a lot of love online.

JB shared with “Good Morning America” that the idea came as she and Coleman were brainstorming potential summer activities. Coleman pointed at JB’s tattoos and inspiration struck.

Lucky for Coleman, his mom was once a tattoo parlor apprentice, and “a little extra,” as she describes herself in the video. She set up a bona fide tattoo table, threw on some blue rubber gloves and got to work. Don’t fret—no actual ink was involved. Coleman’s “flash sheet” consisted of temporary tattoos.


By the end of his “appointment,” Coleman’s tiny arm was full of fun cartoons …even a spider to match mommy’s.

Though JB has full sleeve tattoos, she let everyone know in the caption that, “Coleman decided a half sleeve was good enough,” as “tattoos take longer than he thought.”

“Had to break it to him [that] real ones take a wee bit longer,” she joked.

@korrinjb Creating this tattoo parlour was definitely a core memory for this summer 🌞 Coleman decided a half sleeve was good enough saying tattoos take longer than he thought 😂 had to break it to him real ones take a wee bit longer #pov#summervibes#tattootiktok#temporarytattoo#halfsleeve#tattoolovers#emo#fyp#tattoogirl#mommylife#diy#momandsontiktok#momandsonfun#momandsongoals#mindfulparenting#highvibetribe♬ Choking on Flowers - Fox Academy

Unsurprisingly, the sweet video received a ton of praise.

"This is the most ADORABLE thing I've seen today," one person wrote.

“Man sat like a champ” added another.

One commenter noted how this sweet activity was actually a vital lesson in disguise. “This is so cool! So many kids grow up being told they’re not allowed tattoos. It’s important to let your child know they can express themselves.”

A parent who watched the video shared that their son didn’t like finding out that kid tattoos wash off. JB admitted in a follow-up TikTok that Coleman had also been “pretty upset” when he discovered his tattoos “wouldn’t last forever like mommy’s.”

However, JB gave him the explanation, “You know how one week you like ‘Paw Patrol,’ and the next week you like construction? This way you can experiment…and you’ll have a pretty good idea of what you actually want on your body, and what you really don’t.”

I’m sure there are a lot of adults out there with ink remorse who wish they tried this method beforehand.

Coleman’s tattoos might be temporary, but JB hopes the experience they shared will create something much more permanent.

She told GMA, “When you're a kid, you just see all the magic to life…Once you're an adult, all that magic fades away so quickly. So I really just want to make the most impactful and fun childhood so that when [Coleman] looks back, he's always going to have just such bright, fun, constant memories."

Way to go JB and Coleman! This might be one of the coolest summer activities of all time. It’s certainly made a mark on our hearts.

Some people say that while change is inevitable, progress is a choice. In other words, it’s a purposeful act—like when American media mogul and philanthropist Ted Turner established the United Nations Foundation 25 years ago.

Soul Asylum's "Runaway Train" actually saved 21 missing children.

Anyone who was a teen in the '90s will remember the grunge era. Nirvana, Pearl Jam and Soundgarden were topping the charts with their gravely metaphorical lyrics, but they weren't alone. Soul Asylum burst onto the scene with their solemn anthem "Runaway Train" complete with a video that showcased missing kids.

The video gave missing and exploited children a much bigger platform to be recognized on, because before the video was showcased on MTV, milk cartons were the common method to distribute these photos. In theory, milk cartons seem like a pretty effective way to highlight missing children, but in reality, eventually people would become blind to the photos.

The music video for "Runaway Train" was played all around the world and to the target audience that would most likely recognize the faces. It should come as no surprise, then, that the video helped to bring home 21 missing children. What is surprising, is that the band had to push to keep the pictures of the missing kids in the music video because people didn't think it was working.

Innovation is awesome, right? I mean, it gave us the internet!

However, there is always a price to pay for modernization, and in this case, it’s in the form of digital eye strain, a group of vision problems that can pop up after as little as two hours of looking at a screen. Some of the symptoms are tired and/or dry eyes, headaches, blurred vision, and neck and shoulder pain1. Ouch!

Palm Beach Post/YouTubeThey say a crisis brings out the best and the worst in people. It also reveals the best and the worst in our leaders.

A city commission meeting in Lake Worth Beach, Florida has gone viral after Commissioner Omari Hardy took his fellow city officials to task for their seeming indifference to their constituents during the coronavirus crisis.

Hardy confronted Mayor Pam Triolo and City Manager Michael Bornstein, who he said refused to call an emergency meeting last week, per Hardy's repeated requests, to discuss issues coming about from the coronavirus crisis. And he let his frustrations show.

"You're calling me disrespectful because I've interrupted people, but this gentleman has turned off people's lights in the middle of a global health pandemic," Hardy said, referring to Bornstein.

A newly single mom gets inspiring life advice from an internet grandma.

Becoming a single mom isn't easy, especially if it's unexpected and you feel wholly unprepared. Recently, a newly single mom posted a tearful plea on TikTok asking for advice on how to navigate her new life. But she wasn't without advice long, "TikTok Bubbie" stitched the video and responded explaining how she survived as an unexpectedly single mom in 1989.

The video was sweet and full of inspiration for single parents starting their journey. In the beginning of the video she explained that her ex-husband left her when her son was 4 years old and took all the money out of the bank account. Being suddenly single caused her to have to give up her acting career.

The internet Bubbie went on to tell the young mom, "I got furniture from the Salvation Army. That's right, I got secondhand furniture. Secondhand clothes for me, my son never. He always was first in my book and still is to this day." TikTok Bubbie wasn't done, she made a second video to expand on her advice.
