you know, 26.2 isn't a marathon time, it's the distance of a marathon...

A lot of these just seem to be tattoos...very few seem like they have anything to do with motherhood.

These all remind me of the My Name is Earl, where they dropped the kids at summer camp, and had to drop their pants to remember their birthdates when the counselors asked...keep it klassy!

these started out as tattoos for moms and then just plain old tattoos for anyone. research some pictures before writing an article, it looks much more professional than just pushing crap to meet a deadline.

Just as important as choosing an artist with talent is choosing a clean and professional studio. Do your research. If tattoo studios are licensed by the health department in your area, make sure they are up-to-date and have passed inspections. Always make sure needles are new and unwrapped in front of you. Ensure that they use individual ink cups and that they clean stations between customers. If an artist balks at this, take your business elsewhere.

I really like the first one with the names and infinity symbol.

I'm glad what I got for my Son isn't on here. It's paired with my own design, both of which are perfect for and describe my Son, and make the most amazing and unique (just like my Son!) Mom Tattoo ever. ♥

These are the most awful ideas.... Must be desperate for material.

Most of these are terrible...like they were done in a basement by a 17yr old!
