8 Adoption Tattoos That Will Make You Smile

Get inspired by these adoption-themed tattoos!

Other tattoo ideas: incorporating the Hawaiian word for family (Ohana) or an outline of the state or country from which you adopted with the child’s name or birth date. There are also many Bible verses related to adoption, like John 14:18: “I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you.” See if your spouse or the birth mother wants one as well. Your child’s birth mother may not want it simply because if it’s visible, then she will be asked about it, and she may not want to make her story so public. My final word of advice about adoption tattoos is to wait until the adoption is finalized to get inked.
