Just wondering how many of us mommies here have tattoos? I have a few and am thinking of getting a hip tattoo but am not sure what would be a good piece... So if you lovely ladies wouldn't mind sharing photos and sparking some of my creative juices it'd be appreciated :)

I have 14. They all have meaning but some more than others. The symbol on my wrist means grandfather. My Pa passed when I was 18 and it was the hardest thing ever. I went right after his funeral across the street to the tattoo shop. Years later I got the Beatles lyric"I believe in yesterday." My grandma had a tape of my grandpa singing that song and it made me think of "yesterday" when he was here. I have the band Thursday logo on my foot. My BFF, soul sister right hand man whatever you want to call her has the same. My next is one of my very very good friends names wrapped around my right forearm. Her name year of birth and year of death( still get choked up typing that) She would have done it for me and I will alays be able to look at my arm and think of all our times togeher in the short 2 1/2 years I knew her.

I'm tattooed,pagan,pro-choice,pro-legalizing marijuana,pro-gay marriage,anti-war,non-vaxing,tree hugging,animal loving,book reading,animal testing free,depression battling, trying to raise a free spirit and letting her be who she is but still teaching her important life lessons,fighting for equal rights at the same time,don't like it get over it.

I have two right now.  I have a lab with wings which is for two labs I lost one being my service dog and the wings for the pup that was to replace her.  I also have 13 paws in an anklet.  I was recently thinking of getting one with the babies foot prints.  I had also thought of a pheonix on the calf and an angel lab.

1 mom liked this

I currently only have 1. It is in memory of my daughter Kahlan. She was stillborn at 36 weeks after 7 years of infertility. It is a line of 5 hearts with her name and DOB. 

I do have plans for another one, just unsure of where I want it. It will be a lily flower entwined with a rose. ( lily for my daughter Lilly that is adopted from China and the rose for my daughter Karli Rose) In the middle of the flowers, will be "mother-daughter" in Mandarin symbolizing myself and all 3 girls and on the lily flower, will be a ladybug for Lilly's first mother in China as ladybugs are good luck symbols for Chinese adoption.

I have one.  It's a toe ring.  I would like an anklet, but that's it.

I have 2 one on my arm witch means nothing just something I seen in the tattoo shop that I liked an my 2nd one is on my hip/bottom of my tummy goes on to my leg slightly its a big tattoo a love heart with 2 leafs coming of the love heart and my husbands name in the middle of it. I must say it hurt like hell when he was doing it on my hip part and the part going down my leg. The problem I have now is that it needs touching up and I won't have it done cos it hurt so much :( lol
