If he got something and it had no special meaning, OP would get the exact same one
OP has offered the following explanation for why they think they might be the a-hole:
I followed through on something I told my son and got a matching tattoo. I might be the a-hole because I went to a silly extreme to make a point.
The Reddit post went fairly viral with thousands of comments and here are a bunch of the topmost ones below
The OP just showed that they're really an AH
The OP owned his son with that move

It's so stupid to get a meaningless tattoo
From a Redditor who believes the OP stole the son's tattoo idea
Girl, you didn’t get matching tattoos together? You stole his tattoo idea to prove a point? Did you really think this could go over well?
Tattoos don’t always have deep meanings and not everyone is going to think the same way you do. Just because he came out of you doesn’t mean he is supposed to think exactly like you. You cannot be this seriously dense about it.
Showing what a toxic and petty person can be
The OP has too much time to spare

This Redditor requires some answers
Getting A tattoo because someone else did
There are hidden meanings behind many people's tattoos, and some are mostly concerned with making sure they look good. Since they are indelible marks on one's flesh, some people won't mind turning it into an artistic canvas.
Apparently, OP hates getting tattoos, but mocking the son was significant enough to the OP to justify the expense. To many Redditors, it's a perpetual, observable, and unending evidence of his willingness to become an AH.
