27 Mom Tattoos
These inked-up mamas, Parenting readers, and staff members tell us the personal stories behind their skin art.
"The buffalo skull came first ('94), in honor of my Indian relatives. Then, when I moved home from Japan, I got the kanji ('97). It means "older sister." (My best friends and I all have the same ink in the same spot.) I got the hibiscus for my husband after we got married ('05). Not only does his family live in the Caribbean, but it's our goal to live there someday, too."
