130 Best Family Tattoos You’ve Ever Seen on Skin

 

The phrase “family tattoos” is a bit ambiguous. It can refer to getting the word “family” tattooed, to a tattoo dedicated to your family, or to a tattoo that family members share. Whatever the case is, these tattoos definitely show a person’s love and devotion towards their family.

Family tattoos definitely express the strong bond family shares. Even though your siblings may not express their love on an everyday basis, you know they love you. People consider their family as the greatest blessing, and we all should appreciate our family. One of the ways to do so is to get a tattoo that will show your love not only to your family members but also to everyone else.

Family tattoos are also a great way to pay tribute to deceased family members, and to keep them forever in your memory and close to you. The wearer of this tattoo “split” the tattoo in two parts, on two hands. On one hand you can see a little girl, reaching out for something. But, when the arms come together, you actually understand that she let go of her balloon. Below the balloon, you can see the word “dad” and the date is probably the day when the wearer’s father passed away.

A family tree is a great idea for family tattoos. You may get a tattoo that shows the dates of birth of your family members, you may include their names, or you may combine both their names and their dates of birth. A tattoo like this may also show the dates when your family members passed away, but that would be too sad. It is always better to celebrate life.
