Examples of small mother-daughter tattoo designs are available on Buzzfeed.com, StayGlam.com and Bustle.com. Some ideas for a mother-daughter themed tattoo include an image of a shared interest or item of nostalgia, names, or a small portrait or caricature.
Mothers and daughters should consult with each other to find a design that is meaningful to both parties. However, a mother-daughter tattoo does not necessarily have to be the same tattoo on both people. For example, a daughter may wish to get a tattoo of her mother's favorite type of flower, while a mother could opt for a calligraphic tattoo of her daughter's initials.
