50 Mother-Son Tattoos for Proud Mamas' Boys


Ain't no love like a mother's love -- and there most definitely ain't no love like the love between a mother and her son. A mother and her son build a special bond based on affection and emotion. She's always there for him, and he usually adores the living heck out of her. If a mama and her son are lucky enough to have an extremely close bond, then why not honor it with a beautifully sentimental piece of ink? That's right, folks, we're talking about mother-son tats. 

People get tattoos for a variety of reasons, and they can signify a variety of things important to that person. So a mother and son who have an affinity for ink can choose something that uniquely represents their relationship or a memory they hold dearly with each other. The possibilities, while truly endless, are all equally sweet.

Need more convincing that a mother-son tat is worth getting? Take a gander at an Irish proverb that goes like this: "A man loves his sweetheart the most, his wife the best, but his mother the longest." We couldn't agree more. As a son's life goes on and he accomplishes great things, he'll always hold dearly his relationship with his mother -- especially if he looks down and sees their matching tattoos. A true mama's boy.

For some mother-son tattoo inspiration, take a look at these 50 gorgeous pieces of ink.
