Celebrity dad Mark Wahlberg is trying to teach his oldest kids a lesson: don’t get tattoos.  Mark shared that he’s in the process of removing all of his tattoos and has been taking Ella and Michael along to witness the painful procedure.

“[All the tattoos] have meaning to me, but it’s both personal and professional.

I don’t want my kids getting tattoos. And I wanted them to be [removed] by the time I did The Fighter because putting make-up on and covering them up has always been a pain in the butt.”

I’ve taken my two older kids to the procedure so they see how painful it is and what I have to go through,” he reveals.

Mark also says that he’s hoping none of his kids catch the acting bug:

“I don’t want my kids to be in the entertainment business either, which is why I’m trying to build a lot of [separate] businesses.   If they feel [passionate about acting], and that’s the decision they want to make, then I’ll support them. But I’ll do everything I can to point them in another direction.”

It’s funny how most celebrity parents are adamant that they don’t want their own kids getting into showbiz.  I’m sure their own parents felt the same way.

Here’s Mark attending a photocall for ‘Contraband’ in Sydney this afternoon.

Not a fan of tats myself but IME telling your kids not to do something is one of the quickest ways of them wanting to do it.
