Your mom: She has carried you around in her stomach for 9 months, cleaned up your shit (literally), dealt with you through puberty and not murdered you during your asshole teenage years- that's right. That lady is a fuckin' saint. The LEAST you could do for her is get yourself a nice "Mom" tattoo to prove your everlasting love and appreciation. 

Below we have gathered a mix of classic designs along with some more unique approaches, to consider while picking the perfect mommy memorial piece. Now go call your mom and tell her how awesome she is, damnit. 

1. The Unfuckwitable Classics - Sailor Jerry "Mom" script flash. 

You can't go wrong with this tried and true approach.
