Trending Tattoos

Once you become a parent, you only then realize what true love actually is. Besides the fact that you change as a person, you also form an unbreakable bond with your tiny baby from the moment you see them. A great way to celebrate that eternal connection is to get a birth clock tattoo that’s going to become an everlasting reminder of your little miracle’s birth.

Besides the fact that these tattoos are highly detailed and intriguing to the eye, they’re also extremely meaningful and symbolic. They represent the most innocent type of love that can’t be described through words – a love between a parent and a child.

Since this tattoo is one of the most special pieces that you’re going to wear on your skin for the rest of your life, it’s important to choose a design that speaks to your heart. Now, you can opt for something classic or even something with a twist. The decision is yours but we’re going to give you some ideas so you can figure out which option you like more.

Classic birth clock tattoos

Birth clock tattoos usually consist of a couple of elements: a clock with time, a tiny baby’s feet or hand, and potentially even a date of birth. Some people choose to add the name of their child(ren) while others skip that part.

Here are a couple of interesting ideas you can choose from if you’re looking for a more classical tattoo to celebrate the birth of your child.
