Obama said in an interview aired Wednesday with host Savannah Guthrie that he and Michelle have told their daughters, Malia, 14, and Sasha, 11, they are free to get tattoos -- but there's a catch, Politico reported Wednesday.

"What we've said to the girls is that 'If you guys ever decide 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.
