I can understand the need to help the parents tell them apart. I think a lot of people have the knee-jerk "you couldn't tell your own kids apart???" reaction, but to me all babies look pretty much the same even when they're NOT genetically identical. I can't imagine have three at a time, who all look alike and are the same age. I have to admit that while tattooing seems extreme, I can't think of a better way to go about doing it. As for a less embarassing place, I would think that by the time the children are old enough to be even really be aware that their parents are checking their ass for dots, let alone embarassed by it, they've probably developed unique habits and personalities between them that the parents can tell them apart anyway.

the thing is, tattooing is pretty permanent. Much more so than earrings. And even with something non-descript like just a little dot, it just seems like "what if the kid grows up and is anti-tattoo?" Maybe its not a big deal. I mean, you can probably more or less raise the kid to not care. And really, who would even think about it. I'm certainly not "anti-birthmark." I don't even think about it for the most part.
