Are you getting ink honoring your baby?


So i've been talking to oh about this for awhile, we are both inked and want to add pieces in honor of baby when baby arrives. Oh wants to get LO's name around his cross on his chest, I really want something different. I don't want to get the name or print or portrait but can't think of anything creative. It's going to have to go on my arm since my entire back is already planned/taken. I guess it could go on my leg to but that's really all that's gonna be open.

So if your getting something what are you getting?

Where are you getting it?

And do you have any unusual ideas instead of the normal name or print

You could come up with some design using the birth flower for whatever month LO is born and incorporate LO's footprint

Yes. I'm going to get an ivy vine on my ankle with the birth dates of both boys integrated into the vine in some way. Not sure of the exact design yet.

I've considered waiting until after our son is here to see what his first interests are. Like, say I see him oohing and aweing over trains or dinosaurs or a certain sound of music, I'd get that encorporated into a tattoo with his name. I've always been a fan of the foot or hand print tattoos but they are so common. I also like the idea of those wooden baby blocks, you could do a few of those with the block letters of baby's initials and/or numbers that represent the birth date. I've also considered a flower in the color of his birth stone. It's so tough to think of ideas that haven't been done already. It's also cute to get a tattoo of one of their first drawings, but of course you'd have to wait a while to do that.

also i have a friend who has a tree on her calf...the various branches all represent different path in her life, there are 2 little birs flying around the tree that represent her 2 kids and one tiny bird in the tree to represent her still born baby that "never got to fly"...just a thought

I have an arc of daffodils (her birth flower) with my daughter's name Rian and her birthdate under it. on my calf.I plan on getting one for the new baby ince he or she is born..not sure if I will use the same design though. If baby is a boy will probably do something different. I love tattoos. I have been inked 23 times..safe to say I have a bit of an addiction!!lol

I certainly will be getting inked once LO arrives for both my kids. DS #1 ill be getting his name on my inner arm few inches above my wrist and it will be in Jewish letter followed by the number 25 cause thats the gestation i had him @ and then his tiny footprints of his actual foot imprint when he was born. This baby i am not sure yet but his name in Jewish letters and not sure of the rest
