Two things have happened to my very bored, very-tired-of-being-at-home self this week: (1) I've come suuuuper close (a little too close, TBH) to giving myself bangs, and (2) I've spent a stupid amount of time researching mother-daughter tattoos. And lucky for everyone who has to look at me every day, I'm leaning towards trying the latter...not the former. Like, sure, matching tattoos can look kiiiinda cheesy, but after you peek through these 20 insanely pretty mother-daughter tattoo ideas, you'll see what I'm talking about. (Mom, if you're reading this, I've got my eye on number one, three, and five, soooo...get ready. Love you, bye!)
