Body Art and Pregnant Bellies: Tattoos and Motherhood

I am a big fan of body art and love tattoos. I love the stories behind them, the way they change over time and can truly highlight some important memories in life.  For me my tattoos are centered around loss, motherhood and growth and I plan to get quite a few more.

Anytime I see a tattoo I find myself intrigued and love to see the details and hear the stories behind them. I was surfing Facebook a couple of weeks ago and came across a post that caught my eye. Birth Without Fear featured a post on their website of reader-submitted tattoos — I clicked over and was immediately in love with the images.
