Birdmom share many similarities -- height, a laid back attitude and an affinity for tattoos. Holubec's legs are lined with colorful ink-filled flowers. She took her son to get his first tattoo.

"I think I paid for the first four! It was supposed to have been just one," said Holubec.

So the real question: Would Birdman take his kids to get tattoos?
