She Hid 17 Tattoos From Her Parents For 12 Years, But They Reacted In An Unexpected Way

Maggie is fond of tattoos and got 17 of them inked on her body. When she confessed this to her conservative Christian parents, their reaction was nothing like she expected. This confession was possible because of a radio channel This American Life that helped this young woman to come up with a video and tell her parents that she has multiple tattoos on her body that she has hidden from them for 12 years!

Her parents reacted in a way she never expected. Maggie says,"The conversation we had after they watched the video, about who they define themselves as, as Christians, what they think religion is, was one of the best conversations we've ever had." Maggie shares. 'I think it's very easy for a lot of people to assume the worst in their parents and see them as these curmudgeonly old people, but they're not. They've shown me a ton of grace, and that was something I accused them in the video of, not having any grace, which is exactly what they have shown me."
