In interview footage that aired on this morning's Today Show alongside the highly anticipated first sit-down with former news anchor A.J. "Fucking Shit" Clemente, President Barack Obama talked about life at the White House, his wife's verbal mishaps, and disciplining his children.

Oh, and tattoos.

Discussing the possibility that Malia and Sasha might someday want to get tattoos, Obama said he and Michelle tried to dissuade them by vowing to get inked as well. (Skip to 2:45 in the video above.)

"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 told Savannah Guthrie. "And our thinking is that might dissuade them from thinking that somehow that’s a good way to rebel."
