When I first met G in college, he already had five tattoos. Over the years he's gotten many more and I love that each one reminds me of the different places we have been together. My absolute favorite is this "Henry" anchor. The week after H's birth, G had this drawn up and tattooed at a local shop just down the street.

How sweet will it be for grown up Henry to see his name on his dad's arm every time they are together?

That's awesome! I love Henry's tat! Not to be stalkerish of your man...lol! but now I'm all curious about other tats he has. i'm one of those ppl who love looking at other's tats and hearing the stories behind them. too cool :)

oh that is the sweetest! plus, it will be special that he got it in the city he was born. especially when you all pack up and move back over here!!!

Very cool, very sweet :-)
Do the colors last? I see so many all more greyish-in-greyish and say "no" to my spouse to coloured tattoos... am I wrong?

I adore this. I think I've mentioned before, how much I love tattoos and there is almost nothing more sweet than a tattoo for your baby. I really like the ones of the baby's first feet prints. Kind of cliche I guess, but soo cute.

Leah: G has a couple biking tattoos, one of FL for his family, two birds, a nuclear atom from a coloring book, a bi-plane, and a native american totem sign for his grandpa in AK....Maybe I'll have to post a picture of them sometimes. I also like seeing/hearing about other's tattoos!

Jill: Awww, I didn't even think about that! So true!

Iris: G says they all fade eventually but you can keep them bright by taking care of them and making sure they are done well in the first place :)What tattoos does he want to get?

Paige: I love baby tattoos too. I think it's so sweet <3

Brittany and Marcella: I will pass these comments onto him! Thanks!

Oh, this is sweet. I plan to get another tat in October with Laureli (Ruari's REAL name) next to a flower. So girly. I love it. But, as my grandma would say: "You're ruining your skin. It was so pretty before." :D
