I don't have any real problem with using a small tattoo dot or two to mark babies really... and it probably would just end up looking like a birthmark or mole in the long run so it's hardly a traumatic mark (as you yourself discovered in your -ahem- "research"). It doesn't seem like the most logical way to me really, but to each their own.

I have friends with twin daughters and they got the girls ears peirced with different colored earrings so they'd always be able to tell them apart when they were really little. That had the "socially acceptable" thing going for it I guess. But the real bonus was that they could see it pretty much all the time. They wanted to be able to call their kids the right names and not confuse them (not confuse the babies, confuse themsleves about the names... I doubt the girls would have noticed as infants if they occasionally heard each other's names used. But then my mother called me my brother's name enough times when we were kids... usually when yelling at me :) I kinda think having a mark on their butt so you'd need to take off the baby's diaper to be really sure seems less useful for that one.

yeah, I actually thought of the ear thing. that seemed to make a lot more sense to me. The butt dot just seemed really inconvenient.
