Article.

This tattoo that the woman had on her exposed leg, however, is a racy depiction of Tinkerbell naked, and getting herself off on a light switch.

The picture in the article is censored, but if you would like to see the actual tattoo, go here.

Lana Massey took her 8-year-old son to Legoland, and she said that "after 10 minutes of playtime with my son, I was approached by Melanie, and was promptly escorted out of the main area while she proceeded to tell me that I was being asked to leave and offered a refund due to a customer complaint about my tattoos."

Massey, however, is using social media to cry discrimination.

"Legoland does have a policy in place in regards to expulsion for an offensive t-shirt, but not a tattoo. How do you think Legoland should have handled the situation, especially when the grounds for dismissal was due to a complaint from another customer? In case you forgot, Legoland is a children's attraction."

Honestly, I'm not sure. I kind of think Lana Massey a bit of an idiot for going to a children's attraction, and not taking care to cover up her Tinkerbell-getting-it-from-the-back-by-a-light-switch tattoo.

I also don't really feel Legoland was out of place by asking her to leave.

What do you think?
Did Legoland have every right to remove her from the premises? Or is censorship getting out of control?
Is Massey's removal from Legoland discrimination?
Should Massey have known better, and taken precautions to cover up any tattoo that might be deemed "inappropriate" for a children's attraction?

Uh, yeah.

And if I saw a guy with a Swastika Tattoo on his forehead, I'd kick him out too.


Offensive material can be rejected.

Even if it's in a strange form.

In the original Legoland in Denmark they would not look twice at that tattoo, letting her go about her business. I'd recommend she live in a place where nudity is not seen as something akin to violent crime.

That was a badly done and tacky piece of skin "art". If they have an anti-obscenity policy already in place, I see no reason why they should not have acted as they did. Even if it only covered T-shirts, I think the spirit of the rule is to ban all forms of obscene pictures from being viewed while there by children and adults with taste. If some hungover frat boy shows up with a p***s drawn on his forehead, he can expect to be banned or kicked out too - I hope.

Looks like she should have worn pants... or at least long socks.

But if enough customers complained? What then?
Dude, that tattoo is ******** hot. I actually know the original artist. And no, it wasn't the tattoo artist.

She is correct- it is discrimination. What she, and many others, dont realize is that not all discrimination is illegal.

Legoland was fully within its rights to kick the woman out and offer her a refund.

Seems reasonable.

But why the hell would somebody even get a tattoo like that
The artist did such a bad job

Legoland totally had the right to make her leave.

And no, it's not discrimination of any kind.

As far as I know you can only discriminate based on race, religion, sex, age, disability, or nationality.
