What better way to show love and admiration for the man we call Dad than to get a tattoo in his honor? Thoughtful (and permanent), tattoos are a gesture of true devotion, and lots of people are getting ink that shows their love of their fathers. And for those who've lost their fathers, a dad tattoo can be a touching tribute. Some dads get their own dad tattoos to give credit to their favorite role in life -- as Dad, of course.


That idea is mom-approved! And we'd bet that all these tattoos are dad-approved as well.

This list of beautiful tattoos -- all in honor of Dad -- will make grown-up daughters (and sons) start itching to get inked. Some are bright and bold. Others are simply gorgeous in black and white. So many styles to inspire! There are sentimental scenes and symbols for those who wear their (ink) hearts on their (skin) sleeves. There are funny doodles for fathers who love nothing more than a good "dad" joke. Still more options take something like a handwritten note and turn it into art. There's a tattoo out there to represent every type of dad. (Or even if the perfect one isn't out there yet, there's a tattoo artist capable of creating it.) Take a look at these 50 incredible dad tattoos for father-centric inspiration.
