    Taking the footprint impression at child’s birth can be quite crazy, but having a look at these cool tattoos I think otherwise, it’s great fun to do exactly that.

    Also it would be great telling you kid when he/she grows up that you gat his/her footprint tattooed right on [whereever the tattoo is].

  • zayra Flores

    I loved and enjoyed looking at all the difrent pics of baby foot prints. i also have my baby girl foot prints tatt on my back on my sholder. she was 5 months but didn’t make it thats why i did it so i will always remembet her
    And its also the original ones.

    • KaraLea Hillabrand

      I’m sooo sorry to hear that you lost you baby!! Idk what I would do or have done if I lost my princess Izabella!! I hope you’re doing ok and yes you sweet angel will always be with you!!

      I cam to this site in search for so different ideas for my tattoo I’m getting next month of my daughter’s footprints!!

  • Robin V

    I’m getting my son’s footprint tat just below my right ribs – in that spot they always find when stretching out inside your belly. My son was stillborn. Feb 4th will be his 21st birthday, & we’re doing a celebration of life – I can’t think of anything better to celebrate his short life-before-birth! Does BLUE show well? I don’t want just black–want it to be pretty!

    Also, we’re thinking of inking, “forever my son” under it. My lineage is American Indian, Portuguese, and English. Should it matter what language we choose? We’re direct descendents from Pocahontas, but the Indian language looks strange.

    Any ideas about adding wings? Or would that be too much? Welcoming any ideas, photos, advice. This is my first tattoo – and I want it to look good!!!

    • Mitch

      Robin, anyway you remember your son is wonderful. Remembering someone is the best way to keep them with you. I think the wings would be a wonderful touch. Blessings.

  • Narelle

    Hi I luv your idea of the memory of your baby.
    I had a son who died from SIDS 1990 and only now have I thought of a tattoo in memory of him but not sure where to place it yet.

  • Milena

    Mitch,
    Did you do your tatoo?
    I’m browsing web for cool footprints tattoo for my stillborn son! I lost him 2 1/2 months ago and want his footprints on my left side of rib cage so I can put him close to my heart!
    Let me know about your tattoo!

  • ped

    most of them are painted really bad

  • Mike

    I think this is an awesome way to show your love for your children and plan on getting my daughters done soon.
