Does anyone else think it selfish to go spend 350 on a tattoo when you have a family to provide for

Depends. If the £350 leaves the family short, yes.

If its just in one chunk and kesvevthe family short.

If its been saved for here and there, then no.

Having a family doesnt mean you should never have something for yourself ever.

Are you both struggling financially? If yes, then he shouldn't be spending £350.

Can you spend £350 as you wish as well?

It's only stupid if paying for the tattoo leaves you unable to provide for the family

If you are struggling financially and it will leave you unable to pay bills then yes.

He works away, only see him weekends, don't do a lot with me or his child weekends as he seems to have no interest, in my opinion he finds it boring and would rather have a beer while on Xbox, we have had many probs on n off , I'm still waiting on us getting a home together as in mortgage, our daughter is 4 and at I'm renting , all on me , he puts in every weekend , he has no clue what it takes to run a home, so when he says he wants to do it right get a home etc doing that with money gets to me , it was booked for a whole sat too bearing in mind he only gets time to see us weekends, he never took us on hol , I don't get to do that No, I have treats in reason but my money is caught up in living
