  • I think they're tacky. So, obviously, I don't have any.
    However, I do understand some people like to express themselves through body art. To each their own.

  • I like tattoos I have three and thinking of another =) i think the idea of getting your baby's feet and hands on you is a cute idea if done right ya know and think too that if you have another one you will have to do the same for that one and will it compliment the other and do you have a place where you could put the other see what i'm sayin? Just put ALOT of thought into it its permanent but I think it could be done right.

  • I have one. My husband has 2. I like his better than mine. lol. My brother is getting a portfolio together right now to become a tattoo artist. He is amazing at it. I have a friend who has her son's footprint and name tattooed on her foot. It's adorable. :) (I know that was a lot of random answers in one, so I guess what I think about them is that if you want one, go for it. If you don't, then don't. LOL.) I'm glad I got mine. My mom bought it for me when I turned 18. She passed away almost a year ago, so I think of her when I look at it.

  • I personally like tattoos. My brother is going to do what you did just not with the feet and hand prints since his little girls are older. He's getting their names down his arms. I think it is sweet!

  • I like tattoos. I have one of a bear claw on my back that my friend did. I want to get it fixed up but not sure what I want to do.

  • That sounds like a great one. the main thing is to make sure that it's going to be something that you will truly want with you the rest of your life. GL!

  • I loooove tattoos. I think footprints and the like are cute, but a little over done, so I didn't get them (instead I got something that reminded me of DD).

  • I got my first tat when I was 39, it's a heart over my heart with my DH name. My second tat is hearts with thorns around my ankle with my kids names in each heart.
    If YOU want it and like it, that's all that matters
