I have two kids, Richard and Penelope. I wanted something for them both. I picked a pink lilly (both the color and the flower are symbols of motherhood) with an ambigram of my kids' names. (An ambigram is a typographical design or art form that may be read as one or more words not only in its form as presented, but also from another viewpoint, direction, or orientation. The words readable in the other viewpoint, direction or orientation may be the same or different from the original words.)

In one direction it reads "Richard" and in another direction it reads "Penelope".

I designed a tree for my left thigh that has my husband and I's initials in the trunk (because we're the foundation) and small hearts hang from the branches with my kids' names in them :D I also have one for my puppy, because he was my first baby, but his is a bone, not a heart :D It took a long time to design, and it's pretty big, but I really like it :D

I had a baby in 2007 and placed her for adoption. To remember her I got her footprints on my left ribcage with stars leading to my heart and her name "Allison Grace" under it. I'm very conservative so getting a tattoo was a HUGE deal for me.

That is a very cool question. Never heard of it but I'll tell ya what kind I'm getting & my 14 yo son just now told me what it was. lol So it sounds like that's what I want. It's a tat with your kids names in it. I want either a butterfly for each kid (3) with their names in them or I want 1 big 1 but I want their names like part of the butterfly... maybe they're called the veins of the wings? But that's what I want.

I have a butterfly on my left shoulder blade. The wings are shaded in purple, the colour that represents my daughter & the chinese symbol for strength is between the wings. My son is due in August & I plan to get my children's names on the inside of my wrists. I will design these myself so it will be my own hand writing.

I haven't been able to get min yet since I found out I was preggo again when I was planning to get my tat for my daughter. But, when I do get the one for my daughter, I am planning on getting an armadillo because in the later part of my pregnancy with her, we would call her Willow Armadillo because she was all curled up like an armadillo lol. As for my son, I am not too sure what I am going to get for him. Still working on that one!!!

as of right now i have 5 tattoos with 2 on the way...i have a bubble heart (no color) on the top of my left wrist with BCJ in it for me and my brothers(my parents weren't supposed to have any kids after me but when i was nine my mom got prego and then again when i was ten and we almost lost them both that time), i have a tattoo on my left "boob" that is the tattoo that franenfurter (from rocky horror picture show) has on his right shoulder ( i thought it was cute and even though the movie is odd i love the meaning that the writer had behind it and i live by it) on my right "boob" i have a four leaf clover with the word lucky on it ( four leaf clover because i have a big strong irish background on both sides and lucky because my tattoo artist said it was to plain lol.. we are friends and my dad was his apprentice), my dad was going to do mirrored butterflies on my back but only managed to get the line done (his first tat) so i had a friend add the motto i 100% live for which is no regrets, and my last tattoo is the one for my son, my dad did it it is at the base of my neck right at the top of my spine, it is blue and black my sons name done in black with a blue devil tail unlining it with little blue devil horns and his birthdate on the tail, i got that because everybody was doing feet and hands and he was my handsome little devil as well as the devilish little things boys can get into lol!! in the works right now my cousin and i are getting matching tattoos that are a butterfy with the pink breast cancer ribbon as the body and its going to say i wear pink for my granny using mine, my cousins, and my grannys hand writing! the other one in the works my dad will be doing because of the meaning is a tattoo for my grandpa (i call him pa) which will be the kenworth emblem (semi-truck emblem the antique style) because he was a truck driver and he mainly drove kenworths and said he loved the trucks and his initials are KW and i used to tease him about it, his fave song was roll on 18 wheeler by alabama so it will say roll on 18 wheeler above the emblem the dob on the left and dod on the right and pa underneath!
