Inside: 25 Honoring Dad Tattoo Ideas.

Why not ink a memorial tattoo in honor of the man we affectionately refer to as “Dad”? People are getting tattoos to show their affection for their fathers in a meaningful and lasting way.

A dad tattoo can also serve as a moving memorial for individuals who have lost their fathers. Many fathers get their own dad tattoos to acknowledge their most cherished role in life— as a father.

That is a concept that my mother supports! And we’re willing to assume that all of these tattoos have their father’s blessing as well.
