Kylie Jenner, Chrissy Teigen & More Celebs Who Got Tattoos in Honor of Their Kids
These stars celebrated their little ones in a very permanent way
Bloom got a sweet tattoo in honor of his 9-year-old 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."
"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!

"hey guys please don’t talk to us unless u have tattoos we are a cool tattoo family now and we only want to talk to other tattoo families (srry if this seems harsh)," Teigen joked in April 2019 when debuting the tattoos she and husband Legend got that week, hers saying "johnlunamiles" and his "chrissylunamiles" to commemorate their family.
The actress got a cricket tattooed on her forearm in honor of her youngest daughter. "I ❤️ my little magical [cricket]," the mom of two captioned her photos.
He wears his heart on his sleeve! The notoriously private actor revealed some new ink on Aug. 5, 2019, courtesy of celebrity-favorite tattoo artist Winter Stone. His right bicep, which already featured a tattoo for wife Luciana ("Lucy"), is now home to his four daughters' names in a thin, delicate script: Alexia (Luciana's daughter from a previous relationship), Isabella, Gia and Stella.
In March 2019, the actress and Honest Company founder revealed she got three tattoos for children Honor, Haven and Hayes — renderings of constellations representing the kids' zodiac signs. "Honor Gemini ♊️ Haven Leo ♌️ Hayes Capricorn ♑️" she wrote on Instagram, tagging celeb-loved tattoo artist Dr. Woo.
Every time he looks in the mirror, Offset will be reminded of his first child with wife Cardi B. The Migos rapper came up with an extra special way to honor baby Kulture Kiari: by tattooing her name onto his face! In a series of videos and photos posted to his Instagram Story, Offset showed off the tattoo, which spells out his baby girl’s name along his jawline in a cursive font.
To celebrate daughter Sloane's 1st birthday, the rapper decided to get his little one's name on his chest — a sweet gesture wife Tricia revealed to fans on Instagram.
The Victoria's Secret model got a very special tattoo — a ribbon covered with a puzzle piece pattern, which represents the complexity of the autism spectrum — in honor of her son Alexandre. "Don't know if you guys know and I was never open about it but my son was diagnosed with autism 5 years ago," she wrote in 2018, before adding that her first tattoo "is his name on the back of my neck."
The athlete has plenty of artwork dedicated to wife Victoria and their sons Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz, but his tribute to daughter Harper might just take the cake. "Apparently Harper is allowed to scribble on daddy," the retired soccer pro wrote on Instagram, captioning a 2015 snapshot of his girl's drawing, which Beckham made into a tattoo on his right palm.
For The Hills alumna, new ink (a celestial tattoo!) on the right side over her rib cage was the perfect way to symbolize her love for young daughter Kirra Max. "She means the world to me," she wrote on Instagram.
In lieu of a wedding band, Shepard got a tattoo of a bell on his ring finger in honor of wife Kristen Bell. The actor, who shared the detail on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, also pointed out that the tattoo features the letters K, L and D — the initials of his spouse and daughters Lincoln and Delta.
The mother of two made her devotion to her young daughters Frankie and Olive known by getting both of their names inscribed on the inside of her right wrist.

Upon welcoming daughter Meilani, the Jersey Shore alumna and her (now estranged) husband officially became "corny cute parents" when they got their first child's name and her footprints etched on their back and rib cage, respectively.
"[They represent our] children – their initials, in the stars," the supermodel once said of the stars on her forearm. Klum's ex-husband Seal was also commemorated with an abstract design on the same arm — but that one was removed in 2013 following the pair's split.
The Murder on the Orient Express actor showed off his ink celebrating actress-daughter Lily-Rose during a press conference. Depp also has a tattoo of a flying bird on his forearm, in honor of son Jack.
After her divorce from Billy Bob Thornton in 2003, Jolie removed the tattoo of his name from her left arm, replacing it with the coordinates of her globe-spanning family's birthplaces.
She may still be coy about where on her body she got inked, but the Oscar winner did reveal to Ellen DeGeneres that she has body art dedicated to her husband and three kids, Hazel, Phinnaeus and Henry.
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.
While she kicked back and filmed a selfie video with her makeup artist Ariel Tejada, Jenner flashed the tiny tattoo on her Instagram Story, which was first spotted by Page Six.
