Inside: Sweet Mom and Son Tattoos for that Special Bond.

Ain’t no love like a mother’s love — and there most definitely ain’t no love like the love between a mother and her son. A mother and her son build a special bond based on affection and emotion. She’s always there for him, and he usually adores the living heck out of her.

If a mama and her son are lucky enough to have an extremely close bond, then why not honor it with a beautifully sentimental piece of ink? That’s right, folks, we’re talking about mother-son tats.

So a mother and son who have an affinity for ink can choose something that uniquely represents their relationship or a memory they hold dearly with each other.
