Best Ideas for Father Daughter Tattoos



The love between a father and daughter is often such a special connection. No wonder a lot of people out there are looking for a way to mark this love in a permanent way. Family love is unconditional and therefore people don’t mind marking themselves permanently with a tattoo, which is a fantastic way to show affection as well as add a talking point to your body and the style of your ink.

In this post, we’re looking at some top ideas for tattoos that a father and daughter can get to mark their love. There are lots of different ways this can be done, either by tattoos in the same place, matching designs or just something that feels meaningful for both of you.

Matching Message

This can be a really simple but effective tattoo for two people to get; a matching message. This can be anything that means something to both of you, for instance, if you have a greeting you always use or a pet name you call each other. Deciding on a message you want to say to each other and get marked permanently in ink can be a really fulfilling experience in itself.

The message can be as simple or complicated as you want. To feel even more connected, why not get these on the same place on your body? People are more likely to notice that you share the same ink this way.

Celtic Knot for Father and Daughter

Celtic knots are a regular feature of all kinds of tattoos, but they represent a bond and can be a wonderful way to show a permanent connection with your family. There are specific family knots that you can get designed. Other Celtic knots represent things like motherly love and the love of a soulmate.

You can choose to have the Celtic knot on its own, but if you already have tattoos this can be a great design for weaving around other things or incorporating into existing ink. Celtic knots can be incorporated with the other ideas, too. For instance, if you plan to include text from elsewhere, such as a message to one another, you can do this around or underneath the knot.


Highlighting Connection: Tattoo Puzzle

Tattoo puzzles are a great opportunity to be inventive and consider the different ways jigsaw puzzle pieces can create a design to show the connection between father and daughter. It is obvious that puzzles can perfectly demonstrate strong relationships, and two pieces coming together to become a whole.

You could either both have ‘linking’ tattoo pieces, or one of the two of you could have a much larger tattoo design, while the other has the final piece of the jigsaw. Alternatively, you could have an image of something that means a lot to both of you and each could have ‘half’ of the jigsaw on your body somewhere. Wrists are a good option as they make it easy to demonstrate the tattoo when the two of you are together.

Meaningful Phrase/Quote/Song Lyric

These types of tattoos are incredibly popular among family members who are looking to share a tattoo design. If you have a strong relationship and lots of connections between you, you may share mutual interests with your father or daughter. Perhaps there is a particular band or song that one has introduced to the other. What better way than having a tattoo of the lyrics to remind you both of this connection?

Some prefer to have their children drawings tattooed which mean a lot to them.The same principle can apply to a lot of different things, a phrase that means a lot to both of you, or is something you always say to one another, can be another excellent remind of each other’s love and affections. Perhaps you could share a quote from a film or your favorite book. The options are open, it is about finding something that is important to you both and reminds you of one another.

Ask yourself what makes you think of your beloved father/daughter? What quote or image takes you straight back to your memories with them, this is probably where you will find the best options for your shared tattoo.
