President Obama may have found a foolproof way to keep his daughters from getting a tattoo.

Obama talked with the “Today” show’s Savannah Guthrie about everything from George W. Bush to “Gangnam style,” but what’s really making headlines is his sneaky plan to keep his daughters — Sasha, 11, and Malia, 14, — from rebelling with some ink on skin.

“What we’ve said to the girls is, ‘If you guys ever decided you’re going to get a tattoo, mommy and me will get the exact same tattoo in the same place. And we’ll go on YouTube and show it off as a family tattoo,” Obama said in the interview, which was taped last week but aired Wednesday. “And our thinking is that might dissuade them from thinking that somehow that’s a good way to rebel.”
