The Visalia Police Department has offered a unique safety tip for how parents can avoid losing their children: Tattoo your phone number on them.
Not permanently, of course.
The Visalia PD suggests using a fine-tip marker to create a temporary tattoo on a child’s wrists that provides contact information.
So if your child is lost, someone knows who to call.
Never miss a local story.
The temporary tattoo would be both water and sweat resistant, but come off eventually as long as your son or daughter takes a bath or washes up at some point.
The safety tip could come in handy when taking your kids out for a big event or a big park, like a baseball game or an amusement park.
Simply write your phone number on your child’s hand or under their sleeve along their wrist with a fine-tip marker.
Then after it dries, cover it with a layer of liquid bandage so it stays on all day.
