Kids Name Tattoos with Dates

While kids names tattoos are a lovely idea, you may want to add more meaning to the tattoo. You may want to ensure that your tattoo includes their date of birth as well.

You can choose to have the entire date of birth featured in your kids name tattoo. However, this can result in a rather lengthy piece of ink. If you want to shorten it, you can just opt for the year alone.

Looking for a small and simple design for your kid's name or kids names tattoo? Here are the top ones to consider:

Are Name Tattoos a Good Idea?

Well, this depends on whose name you're getting a tattoo of. It is rarely a good idea to get a tattoo of someone you're in a relationship with or are married to. After all, these commitments can end at any time. You will then have the unenviable task of having to get the name removed.

Children's names, on the other hand, are a better idea. They are an unbreakable bond. It is a great reminder of a relationship that can last a lifetime.

Should I Tattoo My Kids Names?

As you can imagine, this is a decision that is entirely up to you. As mentioned, unlike with other relationships, the one you have with your child is based on unconditional love. Due to this, you are unlikely to have any regrets with this personal tattoo.

Some people believe that a kids name tattoo can bring bad luck. Some cultures believe that boasting that you have a healthy baby can draw unwanted energy towards your family in the form of bad luck.

However, this is merely superstition. If you don't believe that something is bad luck then it won't be, it is as simple as that.

Where Can I Get My Kids Name Tattooed?

If you're wondering, where can I get my daughter's name tattooed on me? Or where should the name of my son go? There is no right answer.

This is because there is no ideal placement - it all depends on what feels right for you. Some people choose to have it close to their heart, while others prefer a more visible space like wrist tattoos.

There are others who believe the best placement is the arms, chest, or the back as there is more space for the name tattoo as well as an additional design.

It largely depends on the size and tattoo design as well as how visible you would like the kids name tattoo to be.

There are many ways to get creative with a kids name tattoo. All that's left for you to do is to narrow down the list to find something that fits both your style, personality, and aesthetic.
