A mother's love is one of the most powerful feelings in the world. A tattoo can become one of the manifestations of the eternal connection between a parent and child. Children often seek to express love and gratitude for their mother through tattoos, while mothers choose commemorative tattoos in honor of their children.

As you can see from this collection of tattoo ideas for moms: from names and dates to a cute family of elephants, there are neither limits nor rules when it comes to a tattoo dedicated to one’s child. A challenge: can you come up with more original and meaningful ideas for this kind of tattoo?


Moms most commonly get tattoos of inscriptions. This kind of tattoo is compatible with any outfit, while at the same time, able to show the world and their children the deep and strong love they hold for them. Such quotes or phrases are most often situated on the back, wrist, arm, or collarbone.

For Mother and Son/Daughter

With paired tattoos, mothers and their sons or daughters can express their bond and the love they have for each other—a love made permanent on their skin as it is in their hearts.

For moms of twins

In memory of Mom

A tattoo dedicated to a mother who has passed away is not only personal and significant but also unique as it serves as a reminder of the pain of losing a very important person. Some people get tattoos in memory of their eternal love for their parents. These tattoos take the form of names, phrases dedications, or symbols reminiscent of that special person.

Mom’s name

For tattoos of inscriptions and names, the most important thing is to choose the right font. Handwritten fonts have always been popular among tattoo owners. The most popular of these fonts include:

  • November
  • Bodega
  • Mahsetta
  • Sharpen
  • Victh
  • Truvaway
  • Alexandra (for lovers of long, curly cursive fonts)
  • Marchy

There is also the beautiful Victorian Parlor or slim N78 fonts. If you do not want a quote written in a commonplace font, seek out and invest in an experienced tattoo artist who can create a font for you!
