From simple to elaborate, these celeb parents have chosen to honour their kids in the most permanent way—by getting a tattoo.
Celebrity tattoos that honour their kids
Chrissy Teigen & John Legend
Back in April 2019, Chrissy shared a post on Instagram showing off her and John’s then-new tattoos, which consisted of each other’s names written next to their kids’ names—Luna and Miles—in a nice minimalist cursive script as a way to honour their family. In November 2020, Chrissy tweeted a picture of her and John on a date night revealing that she had added a new name in ink to her arm: Jack, the name she and John had given to the unborn baby they had lost very publicly at the end of September. Chrissy gave no indication of when she got the tattoo of Jack’s name, which is written in the same font as the other names of her family members but sits close by on a separate plane, or if John has a similar tribute on his arm. However, we’re sure getting this tattoo in honour of Jack was a helpful part in her grieving and healing process, which she discussed in a heartbreaking personal essay where she affirmed that “Jack will always be loved, explained to our kids as existing in the wind and trees and the butterflies they see.”
