Fan reactions to a classic Kendall Jenner moment on the show

Keeping Up With the Kardashians has had its share of memorable moments, including the time a young Kendall Jenner begged her parents to let her get a tattoo. At the time, Jenner was only a high-schooler, and was much different from the person she is today. The tattoo that the young Jenner wanted to get was the words “you’re beautiful” in French on the back of her neck. From the first ask, it is clear that Caitlyn and Kris Jenner will not let their daughter get the tattoo she wants, which causes the oldest Jenner daughter to storm off in anger. The clip of Jenner asking her parents for permission was recently the focus of discussion on the Keeping Up With the Kardashians subreddit thread.

Jenner’s parents did not allow their teenager to get the tattoo, which many fans agree was the correct choice. These fans also feel that Jenner herself would be glad that she did not get the tattoo, as it is as they describe as a “high-school cringe-worthy” design idea. Now an adult free to ink herself as she pleases, Jenner does have three tattoos, including a lip tat that reads “meow.” The influential model revealed the lip tattoo during a 2016 episode of the family’s reality show and later explained that getting the tattoo was the result of a drunken night of partying.
