    Show off your "Mom" tattoos

    She fought hard


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     scp20900 remembers her mother fondly as a huge Disney fan. She found this design on Pinterest before her mother passed, and knew that it was the art she wanted for the tattoo to honor her memory. She says that her mother would probably respond with 'an eye-roll' if she knew of this tattoo, but that didn't stop scp20900 along with her father, brother, and sister-in-law from all getting similar Disney-themed tattoos in her memory. She says the tattoo has evoked tears from people when they find out that that is her mother's handwriting.

    My mom loved and lived Disney! and everything about it...she even painted a door with Mickey on it. So when she was told she had Esophageal cancer in Feb of 2012, I knew I wanted something for her. I took her love of Disney and had the hands. When she passed in Feb 2013 I found a card with her hand writing, the artist made sure to copy word for word. And out came the most amazing tattoo ever.
