25 More Tattoo Ideas for Moms

By michellehorton |

I’ve been thinking a lot about getting a second tattoo lately. A quote in particular, perhaps taken from this poem that’s been lodged in my mind for years.

While researching tattoo ideas (fonts, placements, etc.), I found so many symbolic, meaningful ideas that represent parenting and children (in addition to the ones I posted last year).

Whether it’s the emotional connection between parent and baby, or just the inspiration of childhood, these thoughtful mom-focused tattoos are so much more than just pictures. Take a look at some of my favorite tattoo ideas — from quotes to symbols:

    I have my son’s handprint (from when he was 5 months old) tattooed on my side and it is one of my favourite tattoos. I know they aren’t for everyone (I have quite a few myself) but I love that I have his handprint permanently etched upon my skin.

    I love this feature! I have a tattoo of my daughter’s name and a little ladybug (because she is our Robug). Every time I look at it, it reminds me of her and the wonderful changes in my life because of and for her. Even when she’s not with me, she is :) I absolutely love putting something permanent on myself to always have my child (and I will get one for our second child when we have one) or with me. And, it’s always a great conversation starter!

  7. silvio says:

    I have a cherub on my rib cage on the right side. I got this tattoo when i was not sure where life was leading me. The reason I got it on the right side is because I knew that one day I was going to do something right. Many years after, I had my daughter, who was born with many complications and a premie. At the moment she was born I knew that I didn’t do something right, but created someone wonderful. Now my daughter is going to turn 6 yrs old. And is my first miracle. My second miracle is my second daughter who is going to turn 3 yrs old. She is the reason why I got my second cherub, right next to the first one.
