As a kid I was always painfully aware of how "uncool" my parents seemed. I frequently made a complete cliche out of myself by saying things along the lines of "Ugh! You just wouldn't understand!" with more than enough teenage angst to fuel an entire CW series.

In my wizened old age, I now know that my parents are two of the coolest cats around. Still, neither of them, even in their young and wild days, were cool enough to sit under a tattoo gun and get art permanently etched into their skin.

But what happens if everyone else in the world thinks your parents are the epitome of cool? These celebrity moms have been trendsetters in the entertainment industry for years, and just because they're parents now doesn't mean they're any less badass. Here are 17 awesome celebrity moms who were cool enough to get inked!

It just goes to show, having kids doesn't mean you're suddenly uncool. If anything, having these tattoos might be a great reminder to the moms and their kids of just how awesome they are. At the very least it proves that these ladies can handle some pain. Tatted or not, all moms are awesome and super cool, even if we forget it from time to time.
