I have a Red heart with a banner tinted slightly blue and my sons first and middle name in it. I love it and so does he because everytime i wear a tanktop and he can see it he says mommy theres my name on your back. Its on my left shoulder blade if you would like to see it let me know and i can put the picture up. I also want to get 6 hearts around my wrist for each of my sisters my son my neice and my nephew and if I have any more kids I am putting tattos for them on my other shoulder blade and my ankles depending on how many kids I have

I have a tribal with flowers down my left leg. With a flower for each of us My daughter (oct) a marigold, my husband (aug) a glad, and myself (feb) an Iris, and a spot for one more ;D (someday). My brother in-law does tattoos so he did it for me, it was a real fam experience.

I have been thinking and thinking and I finally came up with mine. I found online that each zodiac sign has flowers that go with it. Each one has a few flowers. So for my husband's, mine, and my son's I found a flower for each of our signs. I am going to get the 3 flowers either on my foot or side. I can't wait!

The best one I've seen is a gal that had a vine going up her leg and each leaf that branched out had her kid's names on it. My baby is only 10 weeks old, so I haven't thought of what I'll get yet.

i'm still debating on what to get for my 3 kids... my husband got a big sailor-style mermaid (i suppose it's me!) sitting on an anchor with three little mer-people on her lap for each of our kids. i have a mural covering my whole back from neck to waist with a dragon (representing my dad, born year of the dragon) coming out of the clouds, a geisha with her back turned (for my mom) and two angry masks blowing in the wind (me and my sister). i got this after my parents split up. before that got a koi/dragon on my right arm from my shoulder to my elbow, from the myth that dragons start out as koi fish, and a spider mum on the underside because it's pretty and delicate and in contrast to the mean dragon (see the story here?!) my other arm has anime on it, with some characters for my name. i'm thinking i might get three goldfish swimming around on my forearm for the kids where the dragon and spider mum are and make it a full sleeve. i would never get my husband's name tattooed on me, but one of these days i'll get something for him too :)

I got things that my children were intersted in when i got the tattoo. For my oldest she had a stuffed duck she carried every where so i got a suzie's zoo duck on my right ankle, my middle girl loved teddy bears and hugs so i got one of two teddy bears hugging on my left ankle, the baby she reminds me of a flower so i got a lily tatooed on my back.

I have an idea of doing my kids names in hyrogliphs down my spine of my back. Thinking of doing Egyptian glyphs. Or you can do your kids feet prints that's cute little feet prints with there name's just below them. I'm also doing Hawaiian turtles down my wrist one for each child. With the colors being blue for my boy and girl colors for my 3 girls. Hope ideas can spark some new ones for you.

I have my daughters footprints, name and birthday going up from my waist to my bra line...it looks like she was walking up my side. i have (with my two best friends) a irish tribal trinity, it signifies not only God but 3 interconnected, unending destinies. i have a guardian angel in between my shoulder blades with my deceased grandparents names and dates under it and i have a music scale, notes and stars with a treble clef on one foot (since i love music) and currently scheduled to get a music staff, bass clef, notes, and not sure what else on my left foot (to signify music, and how i am the only one that can sing to my daughter)

wow... that's a touching story. you could do a lot with that. go to some different tattoo parlors and tell your story. some artists can really help you out. i got a tattoo for my aunt who passed away with throat cancer. i got the cancer ribbon in lavender cause its the general cancer color, and there is a hallo above it and angel wings on each side in memory of her...

I have a butterfly with like pastel flames off the wings and tribal on my lower back. I want the sun and moon on my shoulder with my kids names and then my fiance and I are getting matching ones with each others name coming from an iron cross.

I have two butterflies intertwined in leaves and vines on my lower stomach (one on each side). The purple one represents me and the red and orange one represents my hubby. I want to also get three little butterflies among the leaves to represent our three daughters. :)

I can imagine! LOL, that is really cute and creative though.I like the way you did it and the way ur husband did the matching one. I am going to stick with the sun and the moon on my right shoulder. But I want one more baby so Idk what I'm gonng do with that, we'll figure it out when it comes along. On my other should Im going to get my fiances name like its coming out of an iron cross and he is getting on to match with my name! With the kids I think he is going to do a scroll or something like that we havent decided on that one yet! He has a lot of tats. Like everywhere decent except his back. I have a tribal with butterfly on my lower back. My sisters and I are going to get these chinses symbols on the back of our necks. There is 3 of us and its 3 symbols that means sisterhood! Im afraid that ones gonna really hurt!

i got a tattoo for my son about a week after he was born. its a sailboat in water with a little island in the background and there are cherry blossoms on the bottom. his name and birthday are printed on the sailboat. its really cute. my husband got a matching one. a lot of people get footprints or something like that but we wanted something different. i cant wait to get a tattoo for my next child..although i would have to find room..there's not much space left. haha.

I would like to get my first tat of my daughter's name on the inside of my foot near my ankle. I saw a pattern with a name with a rose/vine. It would look good, but undecided if the rose actually means anything (think it would mean more if it was a star-gazer lily which is my favorite flower rahter than a rose). But going to get it for my B-day in March 2010.

My very first tattoo was my daughter's name, Aeris and then I finished it by getting her zodiac symbol underneath it. She's a Libra, btw! When I have another baby, I'm going to get its name and symbol on my right shoulder to match Aeris' name on my left.

I have both of my boys names, one on each wrist. The 'o' in Noah is a heart that is coloured and the dot over the 'I' in Elijah is also a coloured in heart. I have my hubby's name on the back of my neck with a heart over the top.

I have recently had a big piece that goes down my left side from my bra strap and finshes half way across my back. It's of some cherry blossoms and vine with some buds and leaves. Resting on the leaves are the nine fruits of the spirit from the bible; love joy peace patience goodness kindness gentleness self control and faithfulness. The whole represents my walk with god so far, the open flowers are parts of my life that have come into play and are flourishing, the closed buds are parts of my life that God has planned for me but haven't come into play yet. The fruits of the spirit are something that I strive to have everyday. It hurt more than both of my births put together and that was without pain relief but it was worth it. Its such a pretty piece.

I want to get all the hand prints or foot prints of my baby on me but thought about it to late my daughter is 15 months so her prints will be to big but it would be so cool to do that.

[deleted account]

I'm getting my children's birthdays, but I have a friend who took her sons footprint that she got at the hospital and had it tattooed on her back with his name underneath, it's very cute!

[deleted account]
