Baby-Inspired Tattoos You'll Love!

Would you let your kid design your tattoo?

Would you ever let a 4-year-old design a tattoo for you? That’s exactly what some parents do!

The Stir had a recent piece about a dad who has his son’s artwork tattooed on his arm. That’s a creative way to preserve a child’s drawing, but I would never.

On the other hand, I have two kid-inspired tattoos of my own. Each of my arms has a circle representing one of my daughters: a river for Rio and a rose for Serena Rose.

A lot of parents get tattoos to celebrate their child’s birth. Why not? It’s a momentous occasion, one you’ll surely never want to forget. That’s a perfect rite of passage to celebrate with body art!

Here are some of the interesting ways parents have honored their kids through tattoos.
