Obamas Daughters' Tattoos: President Told The 'Today' Show If Daughters Malia and Sasha Got Tattoos, 'We'll Get The Same Tattoo In The Same Place' [VIDEO]

Obama's daughter's tattoos aren't happening anytime soon, and that's because the President and his wife, Michelle Obama, would get the same tattoos in the same place on their bodies and would show the tattoos off on YouTube, embarrassing their daughters beyond belief and successfully thwarting any attempts by daughters, Malia and Sasha, to get their own tattoos.

The President, Barack Obama, went on NBC's Today Show before the Boston Marathon bombings to talk about life in the White House, his predecessor, George W. Bush, and what it's like raising children as the President of the United States under the oftentimes debilitating glare of the media microscope.

The subject of parenting came up during the interview, and Obama admitted the he and the First Lady, Michelle Obama, have told their daughters, if they were to get tattoos, they would too, in the same spot, and then they'd go on YouTube and show off the "family tattoo."

As he walked around the White House grounds, Obama said in his interview with NBC's Today Show, "What we've said to the girls is, 'If you guys ever decided you're going to get a tattoo, then mommy and me will get the exact same tattoo in the same place. And we'll go on YouTube and show it off as a family tattoo.'"

The threat is an attempt by the President and First Lady to prevent his daughters, Malia and Sasha, aged 14 and 11 respectively, from getting their own tattoos. The President continued and explained why the threat would work.

"And our thinking is that might dissuade them from thinking that somehow that's a good way to rebel."

Obama also discussed Michelle Obama's recent mistake, when she claimed to be a single mother.

"You know, as somebody who has stumbled over my lines many times, I tend to cut my wife or anybody some slack when it comes to just a slip to the tongue," the President said. "But there's no doubt that there've been times where Michelle probably felt like a single mom."

During the interview segment, he also admitted that Michelle was a better dancer, and that Psy's "Gangham Style" is certainly something they've danced to at the White House.

The interview was an interesting look at the often normal family life of the First Family, despite their place at the center of American political media scrum.
