Here are four different ways you can honor your child through a tattoo. This is a great way to honor your child if you enjoy body art.
#1 Childhood Artwork
One way to honor your child is through childhood artwork. If your child is still young, you can save up their art until you come upon a piece that is especially special. If your child is grown up, you can go through their childhood art to see if there is any that you saved and particularly like.
Once you find the artwork that you like, you are going to need to find the best tattoo artist who can recreate the art on your body. Think carefully about the colors in the artwork; you may want to change them to fit with the other tattoos on your body.
#2 Baby Footprints or Handprints
Another great way to honor your child is by having their baby footprints or handprints tattooed on your body. You should be able to get a copy of them from your child's birth certificate or hospital records if you don't have any other records of them.
You may want to get something in addition to your child's footprints or handprints. Their name or birth date in a special font could be a nice addition to their footprints or handprints.
#3 Special Interest
Third, another great way to honor your child is through a tattoo that reflects a special interest that you share together. For example, if you and your child love soccer, you could get a soccer ball or the mascot of your favorite team as a tattoo. Or if you love hiking, you could get a tattoo of a place that you have hiked to together and enjoy visiting. This type of tattoo may require more collaboration with a tattoo artist; you will need to let them know your ideas as well as what you are looking for in order to collaborate on a piece together.
#4 Matching Tattoo
Finally, you may want to look into getting a matching tattoo if your child is an adult. You can find something that is meaningful to both of you, and find a shop that will let you both get the tattoos at the same time. This can be a great way to create a shared memory and reminder of your love together that will last a long time and be meaningful for both you and your child.
