Teigen unveiled a touching tribute to her and husband John Legend's son, Jack, whom they lost after 20 weeks of pregnancy.

While having a "date night" with her husband, Teigen shared a photograph of the couple holding hands, revealing a new tattoo on her wrist, which featured Jack's name written in cursive script.

The inking is located just above another tattoo Chrissy got in honor of her family in April 2019, which reads "John - Luna - Miles," a nod to her husband and their daughter Luna Simone and son Miles Theodore. Legend has a matching tattoo as well on his inner bicep.

Teigen already has some adorable ink for her kiddos, but that didn't stop her from getting another sweet tattoo for not only Luna and Miles, but her entire family.

"Cool mom back at it again," Teigen captioned a series of photos on Instagram of her ink in progress. The finished product: The dates of her father Ron Teigen Sr., mother Vilailuck Teigen, husband John Legend and their children Luna and Miles' birthdays in black ink.

She'll never forget a birthday, now!

The Kylie Cosmetics mogul showed off what appeared to be the the time "4:43" tattooed on her inner forearm in July 2020. Days after Stormi's birth on February 1, 2018, TMZ reported 4:43 was when Jenner's daughter entered the world after the outlet obtained a copy of her birth certificate.

Bloom got a sweet tattoo in honor of his son, Flynn, that didn't go exactly to plan.

Bloom announced the ink on Instagram in February 2020 with a black-and-white photo that showed him holding up his forearm to reveal a series of black numbers atop a text in morse code. He also included a shot of him smiling with tattoo artist, who goes by @balazsbercsenyi.

It wasn't long before fans pointed out that Flynn's name was misspelled as 'Frynn.' Whoopsie!

Not to fear, the actor got the ink fixed, posting a photo of the tattoo with the caption, "finally dot it right! How do you make a mistake like that? #pinterestfail."
