The Beauty of Tattoos, Mothers, Fathers and Their Babies

by January Harshe on January 25, 2012

A few months back, I posted on the BWF page (after sharing a picture) that there is just something sexy about a man who is tatted up and supporting his woman in labor. Well, that led into a full blown discussion and love for our BWF moms and dads with ink. It was followed by this post and a follow up post here.

Personally, I do not have any tattoos, but I LOVE them. I think they are beautiful and appreciate the stories they tell. The emails have poured in and another post (of your wicked awesome photos) is a must.

Right away we’ll melt your heart with Brandon and Brandon Jr.

I have 7 tattoos, but only one of them changed during pregnancy. I have one on my hip of a butterfly and a rose, and due to my twin pregnancy it is completely stretched and disfigured, but I don’t mind – it’s just one more reminder that I carried two beautiful boys inside my tummy. <3

Beautiful! The breastfeeding picture touched me most 🙂 i have one around my hip bone, two small initials (teen tattoo) that got disfigured because i got some BIG wide stretchmarks on my pelvis. I’m glad it got disfigured because i was going to cover it up anyways, as the initials were my ex and me lol. I see that as life telling me we weren’t meant for eachother anyway 🙂

My husband has his entire face tattooed, yet he is the most gentle person I’ve ever met. People are always a little skeptical (and judgmental) of him, but then they see him with our daughter.. and things change.. I sent in a BUNCH of maternity pictures, birth pictures, and pictures of my husband and daughter… I always say ” tattoos do not define character”

Gorgeous! This makes me want a tattoo for my son William, more than ever. My fiance has a tattoo, on his arm. It is a Scottish Thistle and is absolutely beautiful. He wants to get his family crest on his another arm. Now I need to take a picture of him like this. <3. Thanks for sharing these.
