There is nothing more important than family, whether that means blood (aka the saying, blood is thicker than water) or not (because sometimes the bonds we make outside of biological family are stronger). Whatever family means to you, there is nothing else that means quite as much. We love our family. We protect our family. We would do anything for our family. Family is one of the most common reasons we get tattoos, and one of the most common subject matters, because they mean so much to us. Tattoos allow us to express ourselves and what is meaningful to us, so of course family would be right up there at the top!
Are you thinking about getting a tattoo to express your love and loyalty to your family? Need some ideas? Check out these Top 10 Family Tattoos for inspiration:
This lovely tattoo on the wearer’s chest, right over his heart, is somewhat shaped as a heart, and says “Family First.” That pretty much sums it up. It helps that it is framed by four beautiful roses. Perhaps the four roses are representing each member of his family.
“Family is Forever” on this wearer’s chest with two flying sparrows is a lovely, simple ode to family.
This heart-shaped tattoo is filled with birthday card signatures from family members. What a cool idea!
These little Russian dolls probably represent three sisters, from oldest to youngest. Very cute way to represent a sibling bond.
This family of elephants is a cute way to represent family.
When multiple members of family get a matching wrist script tattoo that says “Family” you know that bond is strong!
Here we see the same concept as the previous tattoo, but in Hawaiian, as “Ohana” instead!
This tattoo enthusiast chose to represent each member of her family as a butterfly, which makes for a beautiful, flowing tattoo that can continue to grow!
Simple and sweet.
