Let’s start by emphasizing on a relationship whose love is gentle, irreversible, unaltered and unrequited for. We’re talking about the bond between two generations that spans from a mother giving birth, to a daughter who recuperates and compensates her labour of love through acceptance, charm and attention. There may be a question about how you must choose the absolutely desired tattoo inspiration!
Mothers and daughters are known to be as close to each other as two peas in the pod. While you were busy exhibiting your affection for your mother through casual hugs and chocolates, we came across some daughters who were ready to go a step beyond. Most mothers and daughters are now considering sharing similar or identical tattoos in order to exhibit and therefore, strengthen their labour of love for each other. Mentioned below are some of our favourites that we think can help you choose the kind of Mother and Daughter Tattoos you two want to share with.
Mother and Daughter Tattoos
If you think that choosing tattoos with different shapes and pictures might be too risky for you given the tattoo artist, you can always consider getting a meaningful quote such as ‘she gave me wings and taught me how to fly’ on your forearm. Your mother can replace the pronouns with those favouring her, and you will have a tattoo as vivid as your dreams.
Identical phrases such as ‘You are my sunshine’, ‘I love you’, ‘like mother, like daughter,’ and clichés such as ‘you mean the world to me’ can be considered as tattoos for the both of you. Try linking these on same parts of your body since they allow the tattoo to become more prominent and hence, look cooler and efficient.
Lock and Key
Having the key linked to your wrist, and the lock to your mothers is somewhat typical and a redundant cliché. We all know that our mothers tend to help unlock our secrets by probing into our lives with their secret notions and then solving our mediocre problems.
However, we know that there are many mothers out there who believe that their daughters have helped them become stronger for their families and self, and therefore, open more. For the daughters who seek to help their mothers with their profound secrets with a piece of advice from a younger generation, the lock and key tattoo can reverse their roles.
Favourite Piece of Music
While we already have a separate section on the importance of quotes mentioned above, we would like you to think of this as a challenge for yourself and your mother. What interests in music have you both shared since your childhood? Do you think there is any band you have showed interest in because of your mother, or vice versa, and can have a lyric or more tattooed on your skin?
For instance, most families adore a similar piece of music, such as a raging encore from ‘The Beatles’, or ‘The Rolling Stones’, or ‘Queen’. These bands are as popular in our generation as they were in our mother’s time. You can also use specific dialogues from your favourite movie, book or play as permanent reminders of a shared history on your skin.
Art and Hobbies
Our mothers probably introduced us to the delicious art of finger painting in our childhood, and some of us must have proceeded to make their dream of having a gallery exhibition real already. We depend on our mother for her unduly support, and this is where we enter into the vivid world of art. How about you opt for an easel or a plain canvas on your wrist, forearm or the back of your shoulder to symbolize her endless love and support for you? You can also try different types of sketches and Polynesian figures strewn with phrases on similar parts of your body to highlight a connection and bond between you two.
Endless Options of Colourful Images
With butterflies, hearts and flowers as three of the most popular images to choose from, consider getting a tattoo that you and your mother can relate to wholeheartedly. Remember, the image you choose, as a tattoo on your skin will be permanent, so you better choose your options wisely and positively.
Don’t fear! Give these Mother and Daughter Tattoos a try so you know yourself better. Even if there comes a time when you get bored and don’t like the same tattoo anymore, there is always an option of trying cover up tattoos to grab a different look.
