Tattoos Honoring Mom
Tattoos for Moms
Most people getting a tattoo tend to take some risks and push the envelope, but there are some things that just don't lend themselves to that, and in the case of tattoos for mom, most people are very traditional.
The majority of tattoos commemorating moms included the things moms love to receive: roses and hearts.
Many people also put the actual image of their mothers on their bodies, but I won't be including those in some of the photo examples as that is highly personal and, other than generating some ideas, not reproducible by others.
As for color, tattoos for mom also largely keep with the traditional red that so many moms love, and which hearts and roses look great with.
Even so, I did include a couple that are definitely out of the mainstream of tattoos celebrating moms.
Again, there are exceptions, but that is by far the choice of the majority of those seeking to honor their moms with a tattoo.

I can only assume the phone in the background is a reference to our moms always reminding us to call them. The old-time version of the phone, and the mouthpiece on top really looks great to me. Fun tattoo.

Mom, Skull Tattoo
This is one of those rare exceptions to a typical tattoo honoring mom, and is somewhat strange to me.
The actual tattoo is high quality, but it's hard to picture why anyone would include a skull with a rose when thinking of their mom, even if she has passed away. To each his own I guess.

Mom, Heart, Wings Tattoo
Here's another variation of mom and a heart. The hale appears to signify she was considered an angel, and of course the wings imply she has also passed on to heaven. I thought the blue rectangular background was an interesting touch to the image.
Very few things are more close to the heart than a mother. Many people choose to honor that love by inking a tribute to mom on their bodies. As you can see from most of the tattoo images shown here, there is a deep desire to retain the respect most people have for those who gave birth to them.
