President Barack Obama has warned daughter Malia and Sasha that if they get tattoos, so will he and first lady Michelle Obama.

During an interview with Today on Wednesday morning, the Commander In Chief, joked to Natalie Morales about how he would thwart his teenage daughters from getting permanent ink. He had the perfect idea to stop any rebellion that Malia, 14, and Sasha, 11 would want to engage in.

"What we've said to the girls is, 'If you guys ever decided you're going to get a tattoo, then 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.

"And our thinking is that might dissuade them from thinking that somehow that's a good way to rebel."

The President has shown to be a man of his word when it comes to humiliating his daughters. He has worn mom jeans, sang at different times during his term and even jumped on the 'Gangnam Style' dance craze.

"There are things I like that they think are cheesy, like 'Gangnam Style," he told PEOPLE magazine.

The interview also touched upon comments recently made by his spouse. She referred to herself as a single mother last month and the language caused controversy.

"You know, as somebody who has stumbled over my lines many times, I tend to cut my wife or anybody some slack when it comes to just a slip to the tongue," the president said.

"But there's no doubt that there've been times where Michelle probably felt like a single mom."

The President spoke of the stress the first lady experienced raising their girls as he was first a senator and then campaigned for the highest office in the land.

"I know that before we got here, when I was running for the U.S. senate, when I was running for president, there were times when I wouldn't see her for a week, and she was still working and having to look after the girls," he said.

"She definitely, I think, understands the burdens that women in particular tend to feel if they're both responsible for child rearing and they're responsible for working at the same time," he explained.
