Moms come in all shapes and sizes, colors, and backgrounds, but no matter what, our mothers love us unconditionally. While the word on the street toward tattooed moms has been negative, you have to realize that they are just like any loving, caring, and devoted mother out there. Tattooed moms have a lot of love to give, and there are of course many reasons they are absolutely amazing.
Some of those reasons tattooed moms are awesome are:
1.) She has pretty pictures on her skin.
Some moms like makeup, other moms like ink; the results are usually the same, beauty. Our mothers are beautiful, no matter what they wear or what they may think when they’re frazzled. A tattooed mom has taken the time to allow someone to draw on her skin in such a way that her life story is etched out on her.
2.) She probably has one or two tattoos as tributes to her kids.
Most tattooed parents have a piece or two that pays tribute to the most important people in her life, her kids. This is a mark of her devotion to her children, and an always-present reminder of why she does what she does every day, to make sure her little ones are safe, happy, and healthy.
3.) She is just as loving as any other mom.
