Much like a mother’s love, tattoos are one of the most permanent things in the world. It doesn’t matter if you’re getting a meaningful quote about life or something cute and silly, getting a tattoo is a pretty big decision. Parent’s get tattoos honoring their children all the time, and it never fails to be awe-inducing. Taking the leap and getting a matching tattoo with your own parent is an awesome way to strengthen your bond and commemorate your love for each other. These tattoos are so gorgeous they might just have you and your mom booking your own appointment in no time.


1. Not So Cliche

This phrase definitely isn’t new. “Like mother, like daughter” has been used to refer to everything from similar looks to comparable dispositions. This mother-daughter duo has taken the saying to a new level with these clever tattoos. Their gorgeous script and simplistic design are eye-catching alone but when put together, they turn into something truly special.
