Jessica Alba, Drew Barrymore and More Celebrity Parents Who Got Meaningful Tattoos for Their Kids

Sometimes a tattoo is one way people show their loved ones just how much they care about them, as it is something that will be on their body for the rest of their lives. And some celebrity parents, including Jessica Alba, Dax Shepard and Drew Barrymore have done just that in order to honor their wonderful children.

Plenty of more celebrities have decided to get some meaningful ink on their skin in the name of love. Chrissy Teigen got a beautiful tattoo for not only her kids, but her entire family. “Cool mom back at it again with @winterstone!!!!,” the Sports Illustrated alum wrote via Instagram in October 2019, tagging celebrity tattoo artist Daniel Winter.

The model included a series of snaps showing her getting the artwork, as well as the finished product. The fresh piece of ink included a line of numbers, with all of them representing the birth dates of her father, Ron; her mother, Vilaluck; her husband, John Legend; and the couple’s two young kids, Luna and Miles.

Fans were loving the piece of art, as they took to the post’s comments section to reply. “Love this. I’m glad you got this on your left arm, closer to your heart,” one user said. “I’m going to just go right ahead and say that I’m so stealing this idea. Sorry and thank you,” another person joked. The Lip Sync Battle cohost’s own spouse had to chime, as he responded, “The ultimate mnemonic device!”

Chrissy and the “All of Me” crooner married in 2013 and later welcomed Luna in 2016, followed by Miles in 2018. Tragically, the Hollywood duo’s third child, Jack, died when the Cravings author suffered a pregnancy loss in October 2020.

Chrissy and John honored their child’s memory when they got matching tattoos one month later. Daniel Winter shared two photos on Instagram at the time, which featured “Jack” written in cursive on both of their wrists.

Of course, Chrissy isn’t the only famous face that headed to the tattoo shop for her family. ’80s pop legend Madonna revealed in February 2021 that she got her first tattoo at age 62 in honor of her six children, Lourdes, Rocco, David, Mercy and twins Estere and Stella.

“Inked for The Very First Time,” the “Like a Prayer” artist wrote on Instagram of her new piece. The wrist tattoo reads, “LRDMSE,” her children’s initials.
