Babies Posing With Tattooed Parents Create Beautifully Unique Pictures

Tattoos often get a bad rap.

Most of the time, people associate tattoos with individuals who are a little rough around the edges, like bikers or prison gangs.

But in reality, all types of people have tattoos, and ink is just a beautiful form of artistic self expression that lets you use your skin as a bank canvas.

As a way to challenge the negative stereotypes associated with body art, Bored Panda recently put together a stunning photo series depicting a bunch of babies alongside their incredible, inked up parents.

These photos prove people with tattoos are the same as everyone else, and as the saying goes, you shouldn't judge book by its cover, or in this case, a person by the ink he or she is covered in.

Take a look at the photos below to see these adorable babies and their tatted parents.

Having tattoos doesn't make you a bad person.
