Show your mum how much you love her with a sweet mum tattoo!

There's no one in the world quite like your mummy - the woman who carried you for nine months and then loved you from the moment you were born. 

Tattoos to commemorate someone special come in many forms: their name on its own, an image that means something important to you both, or their title in relation to their family status. 

'Mum' and 'dad' tattoos are one of the most traditional of their kind. Along with ships, anchors and roses, the word mum or dad, often within a red traditional heart, is perhaps one of the most established tattoo symbols in the modern world. Nothing marks the roots of classic tattooing like this tattoo.

I wanted to explore some of the best traditional mum tattoos, along with new original takes on this familial tattoo.
