WASHINGTON, April 24 (UPI) -- President Barack Obama told NBC's "Today" show he and first lady Michelle Obama have a threat in place to keep their daughters from getting tattoos.

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.
