27 Mom Tattoos
These inked-up mamas, Parenting readers, and staff members tell us the personal stories behind their skin art.
"I am a 31 year old mother of two beautiful boys ages 5 and 3. I have always LOVED tattoos since I was in Junior high school. As soon as I turned 18, I went out to the first tattoo shop that had time for me, and got a tribal armband that was popular at that time.
Well, years passed, and I started learning more and more about great tattoos! And as I looked at my armband, I started to hate it more and more! So, when I finally was able to save up some money to cover up that 'eye sore' of a tattoo I wanted to cover it up with something full of color! Also, I wanted something that I would LOVE to look at for years to come! So my sleeve is of Plumerias (which is my cultures favorite flower to wear in their hair or behind their ear, and I just think this flower is so simple yet beautiful) floating in the ocean. The ocean represents the fact that I love the water, and that the ocean surrounds the islands Samoa and New Zealand where I come from.
I always love to see other Inked Mommas!!"
