Thank you to all of the mamas who have shared their beautiful ink with us! We got so many more pictures after we published our first post of breastfeeding and motherhood tattoos, we decided to do a second post.
If you would like to share your breastfeeding or motherhood tattoos, please email a picture of them to NursingFreedom (at) gmail (dot) com, along with a brief description/meaning of the tattoo. Let us know if you'd like us to use your name!
Enjoy the beautiful ink below sent in by our readers.
|Taryn from SpiritedDoula.com had this piece done as a tribute to motherhood. It is based on Gustav Klimt's painting Mother and Child. The inspiration for this tattoo was her son Jude, who is 29 months old and still nursing.|
|Devan at Accustomed Chaos has two motherhood tattoos. The hibiscus flowers across her back each represent a child of mine (including Triton, who she lost at 13 wks gestation). The cherry blossoms are a recurrent theme in her tattoos; she has nine, each with falling petals. Each blossom represents a miscarriage (she has had ten) and there is a flourish tying them all together.|
|Devan's second tattoo includes two cherry blossoms with falling petals and the phrase "Come What May." The phrase is her motto, and reminds her that she will always be ok, no matter what.|
|Allie from TheBabyBirthingMama.com got this tattoo for her 20th birthday to depict her and her children. Babywearing is super important to us, which is why the little one is in a sling. To Allie, the tattoo represents the beauty of motherhood.|
|Nakai's tattoo, which is on her chest, not only represents motherhood and her own birth story, but also symbolizes that birth is close to her heart - she is studying to be a midwife.|
|Corrine's "mother love heart" tattoo bears the signatures of her sons: Logan at 6 years old and Connor at 4.5 years old.|
|This mama chose a willow tree, because she and her daughter both love them. The base of the tree has she and her husband's initials; their children's initials are amongst the branches of the tree.|
