It’s so sweet for both mom and dad to have your footprint tattoos on them.

As you can see, the footprint tattoos has a great significance to the person wearing them, either it’s a footprint of their children and newborn babies, or a memorial of the baby they lost. Some also get it because of the famous beautiful poem ,“Footprints on the Sand”. My favorite tattoos are those of the dads who have their babies’ footprints tattooed on them. Most people who get them are sentimental and it’s nice that their tattoo is meaningful to them. There’s nothing better than a tattoo with a nice story.
