“M is for the many things she gave me, o is for…” Oh, no… that is the worst mom tattoo we’ve ever seen! These mom tattoos, tattoos honoring moms, and mom memorial tattoos were probably well intended, but are some of the absolute worst tattoo designs we’ve ever come across. As far as mom tattoos ideas go, these should have all been reconsidered long before the ink ever met the skin.

Tattoos are generally a forever thing, so when you’re searching for good mom tattoo ideas and a tattoo artist to commemorate your mom, really do your homework. Also be sure to ask yourself, "do I want this glorified M&M ad on my back forever, even though mom sure loved a sweet treat?" The answer is most likely no, and you'll save yourself years of regret.

However, if you simply must get a mom tattoo, make sure you spring for something high quality, free of tattoo spelling errors, and a tattoo design that won't frighten any of your own kids. After all, your mom probably just wants what's best for you, and rarely does a neck tattoo qualify, no matter how sincere the message.

With that said, check out the absolute worst bad mom tattoos in this gallery and don’t forget to vote up the worst of the worst below!
