i am getting a sun and moon (to represent mommy and daddy) then get a star underneath with my sons initials, i love outer space and i am the only one my son lets sing 'You Are My Sunshine" too because i have sang that to him since he was born. plus when i have more kids its simple to add to! everyone gets foot prints and i dont know how many kids i will have... i cant imagine having foot prints all over me! haha

Thanks for all the answers to this post! I'm going to close this thread to comments because it is 1.5 yrs old and there has been a huge response. This way we can have newer questions move forward! :)

My sister has a tattoo for both her sons. One is of her sons footprints positioned to make a butterfly which is attached to her oldest sons name in a 'lake-like' scene. Its super cute. I have four tattoos. I am expecting my first, so I will def be getting a tattoo for 'he or she' but I am not sure what it will be yet. It helps that my boyfriend is an amazing artist and has been perfecting his tattoo skils :) He has already done a large piece on my upper thigh. Just talking about more tattoos gets me excited! Especially amazing free ones.....

for my son i have his footprints that we're taken at the hospital with his first and middle name along with his birth date. for my daughter i bought finger paints one day and decided to try to get her hand print. after a while i got the hang of it so i now have her hand print that we did with her first/middle name and birth date. my husband has a foot print and a hand print of our daughter with her name and birth date.

I have a sunflower on my left wrist and yellow ribbon( support the troops) on my right wrist. I'm think of getting my daughter birth month flower added to my sunflower. I was also thinking of adding a flower or a bug with the flowers for my boyfriend as well. He wants to get her name tattooed on him in her own hand writing, but he doesnt know where. Our daughter is only 17 months so he might nit be getting his tat to for awhile. Lol

I want my kids initials (unsure where at the moment) and a star burst or like a meteor shower only in stars on my right wrist. It reminds me of my brother, who always looked out for me. so I would feel like I always had a piece of him.

On my shoulder I am going to get a lotus flower rising from the mudding water to represent still coming out strong and beautiful despite many hardships I endured and one green and one purple dragonfly on or flying around the lotus representing my 2yr old son and 1yr old daughter. September- I also love the idea of getting your sons eyes!

i have a cross with my husbands name in it. and the cross is slanted to symbol nothing is ever perfect in life. and for my kids i got paw prints with their names under it. it looks as if they are walking up my shoulder... instead of paw prints get their foot prints which is really cute also. every tattoo i have has a reason for the design, color and angle.

I got my son's foot prints in between my shoulder blades on my back, with his name above it. He is my only child right now, but when i have more children i will think of something different to represent them. I have 2 other tattoos, on my lower left side of my back i have a big hawaiian flower and then on the right side i have a 4 leaf clover

i got a yin yang with waves going crashing through out and my daughters name (Hannah) scripted under it. i love yin yangs and to have a special design made up to have my daughters name added to it made it more personal

I was thinking in getting a purple star and a blue star. The purple one will represent mommy and the blue one will represent my son =).... and if I ever have a baby girl, I'll get a pink star !

I placed my sons hands in the shape of a heart. So if you can picture it, the four fingers on each hand bend inward. They touch the opposite finger at the nail. Each thumb touches at the nail and points downward. The shape forms a heart. I took a picture of that and made a tattoo of it. It doesn't look animated, but it's a portrait so it looks very real.

So I have two girls, before I even had a child I got a butterfly on my left shoulder blade... Now that i have my two girls i got there names and birth flowers with a heart in between the two tattooed on my back. The butterfly is on the side of my older childs name and flower and I've always called her my butterfly so now I'm gonna get the whole thing connected and on my youngest side (my right shoulder balde) i'm gonna get a ladybug and it's all gonna be one piece.

The next tattoo I want to get is a celtic butterfly. The top wings with the celtic symbol for motherhood and the bottom wings with the symbol for love. Around the butterfly I want to have clouds- one for each of my kids.

i have a blue rose with a banner going around it with my oldest name at the top and my youngest name at the bottom. it's on my left leg right above the ankle. i wanted to get a tatt when i was pregnant with #2 but you can't do that so i waited and finally psyched myself out last year in march and got it done. i hate needles and i'nm scared of them but it wasn't as bad as i thought.

the celtic symbol for motherhood can always be intertwined with something else you like. I keep thinking about getting a turtle to represent me (wisdom & long life) with the motherhood symbol on its shell...I don't recommend getting names...be mroe creative! if you like animals pick an animal family that represents your personality

I plan on getting a flower (haven't decided which kind) on my right shoulder as a cap with three butterflies. One representing the baby I lost and the other two representing my two little girls. I agree with everyone that the tattoo should mean something to you!

if u choose to have a tattoo it is perfectly fine & very expressive to ur interest of art..... i myself have a tattoo it started out as a mother daughter tattoo that i've been able to add to, to include my growing family... i just loves dolphins so i chose a dolphin theme of course I started will 1-adult 1-baby, now I have 2-adult & 2-baby and I am going to add 1 more baby dolphin into the mix as now I have 3 children...... you need to find a theme of something special that you love and enjoy & go with it...... my tattoo is on my lower leg which I think is a pretty good location easy to care for during the healing process as well as nice to show off when wearing shorts : ).... GOOD LUCK ! ! ! ! on whatever design you choose : )

I recently got a tattoo with three hearts connected. the top one is a tiny red heart with a halo over it. the next is a blue heart with my son's name and the bottom one is a purple heart with my daughter's name. the red heart with the halo is for my daughter's twin i lost very early on in pregnancy. I also have a panda on my back.

I've had both my childrens actual footprints (taken with an inkpad at 2 weeks old),full name and D.O.B on my back, my tattooist said don't have anymore cos it'll look like your letting the kids walk all over you lol. Ah well who cares I think they are soooo cute they are there to cherish. If I did have more children I'd still have their footprints no matter what Paul said lol.

I also have one on my right shoulder with 3 forget me not flowers and 2 butterflies underneath those I have "Forget Me Not" the 3 flowers symbolise my 3 miscarriages 2 of which were mid pregnancy and the butterflies are for the 2 most important people who have passed away my granny and grandad.
