So I want to get another tattoo with DS's name on it. I'm just not sure what to do. I was thinking about a weeping willow (my favorite tree) with his name in the leaves or roots, but now Idk. I want it to be something I can add to when I have more kids.



Also, DS is my second. I had a daughter that died, I went into premature labor at 21wk4d. I have a tattoo already with her hand prints, name, and birthday on it, but I'm wondering if I should add her name to the new one, too?



What do you think, ladies?

I like the tree idea, those are my faves as well.
as for adding your DD, I think that's a personal decision and you should do whatever you want :)

You could do the tree and leave room to add more leaves/branches for future children.

I think the problem I'm hitting is that willows don't really have visible branches, just the wispy dangly things. I've been trying to yet DH to fiddle around and draw a rough sketch, but he's easily distracted lol. And I suck at drawing.

my opinion... i wouldn't add DD to it I think the one u have for her is special and u cant duplicate how special it really is! But its your choice and Id love to see the tat u got for your DD
