One consequence of tattoos is that they might not represent the relationships they did when they were first drawn. Nowhere is this more prevalent than with romantic tattoos. Even if you feel in love now, who knows where that love will be in ten years. You could be stuck with a tattoo of your ex’s name. This can apply to interests as well as relationships. In twenty years, your internet meme tattoo might lose its initial zing.
This concern is not found in mother & daughter tattoos. The bond people share with their kids lasts for a lifetime. This is especially true in regards to the relationships mothers have with their daughters. After all, they are the ones who teach them to be women. A shared tattoo between a mother and her daughter can be just about anything: a quote, a matching animal or just an expression of maternal love.
