Despite tattoos becoming much more popular these days, there is still some taboo around the people who have them, especially when it comes to how parents are viewed. Sadly, tattooed parents are often looked at as if they have either just come out of a prison or about to do something that will send them to one. Considering that people still criticize women for being heavily tattooed, inked moms often have to endure a double dose of scrutiny. Ironically, it's often other women that look at tattooed moms and presume they are bad mothers.
You would think that in this day and age ignorant views like these would have gone by the wayside, but unfortunately that's not the case. Photographer Celia Sanchez wanted to do her part to make sure people treated tattooed mothers the way they deserve to be treated — with the utmost respect, just like every other mother.
Sanchez asked mothers with varying levels of tattoo coverage to pose with their kids for a series entitled "Devoted." As you'll see in the gallery below, Sanchez's work proves that tattooed moms rock and are just as dedicated to their children as any other parent.
Check out Celia Sanchez on Instagram for more of her work. There are plenty of moms out there rocking the ink and kicking ass at parenting, too. Take a look at some of the amazing tattooed moms found on the web.
