Does your mom or grandma have tattoos?

Mom and Daughter Get Tattoos Together (VIDEO)

Posted by Amy Kuras on February 9, 2013 

Did your mom ever tell you "you can't judge a book by its cover"? She's right, and in the latest episode of Tattoo Moms we have your proof.

Doris is a sweet-looking grandma from Wisconsin: gray hair, glasses, retired from the pickle factory. But in fact, she's kind of a nonconformist. Because most grandmas don't have tattoos running up their legs. But Doris does. She's got everything from a tattoo of a pickle to stars and dots representing her children and grandchildren.

Speaking of those children and grandchildren, she's gone to get a tattoo with almost all of them. We meet her daughter Cindy in the episode too.

Cindy is covered in tattoos too, from one honoring her late husband and their four gorgeous pet cats to a classic rose on her chest. As it turns out, tattooing is a family affair for them; they've even had a tattoo party at Doris's son's house, and usually at least two family members go to get tattoos together.

Doris seems, well, kind of awesome. She got her her first tattoo in her 40s, which was well before tattoos went mainstream. Watch the video and check her out:

My mom has 5 I think, only one we got together. Her mom had none I believe and my dad's mom had none.

My mom has one. We got them together, matching ones on our wrist. My grandmother wants one really badly but can't because of all of her health problems. My mom is planning her next tattoo as well. She wants something symbolizing her PAH.

Not at all, tattoos are not for my family. I might have a family member with one but not sure who it is.

My mom says she wants one, buts she's afraid of needles and hates pain so I doubt she ever will. My grana has one...someone's name on her arm. Lol. I have some.

No my mom, who is 64, does not and neither does my 85 year old grandmother. However, at almost 46, I have 4 grown sons (21, 22, 25 & 26) and 1 biological grandson (6) and if you asked them this question their answer would be yes. I have 20 tattoos at the moment (am adding 8 more by mid March). My sons, husband and I all have Star of David tattoos, our matching tattoos.
