A parent and child's love may get complicated over time, but typically it is a forever thing. So getting some ink to honor one's kid -- or kids -- is a beautiful way to celebrate that special bond. After all, once someone becomes a parent, it is a role they'll have for life. Plus, it is essentially risk-free unless one ends up with an evil little bugger, in which case the tattoo will serve to remind them of a time they had a little sweet child o' mine. But honestly, getting a tattoo in honor of our children is something that we think is pretty safe to say one won't regret. So why not get a piece that will last as long as that special love does?
