@twinkM,
Please don't take this personally but are you a female or male?

You are vague in this demographic revelation. It's an important question because one can tailor an appropriate tattoo ideas for this personal project.

Where will this tattoo be placed? [Ankle, neck, wrist, etc...?] How large are you looking for ... tattoo wise?

@twinkM,
An idea that might be considered cute ... does your daughter have a favorite doll she really loves or perhaps a teddy bear?

I'd avoid electronic toys that might be considered obsolete in a few years or so and go with a classic symbol associated with the child's childhood.

Then perhaps you can have a small tattoo that's modeled after this toy with say a scrolled banner above and below the toy tattoo with the words Love and (your daughters' name) each in their respective banner.

I'd personally stay away from cartoon hearts or photographic portraits of your daughter's face. Hearts are too common and the latter is just plain creepy.

The major question that needs to be answered mow is do you have a competent tattoo artist that can pull off the job and do it well and also just won't sell you a slightly customized clip art that everyone in the world can get.

Isn't eight a little young for tats? It's her body, and might it not be better for her to decide when she is older whether she even wants one and what it would be?

@jgweed,
I think the idea is that the mom would get a tattoo that celebrates her love for her 8-year-old daughter...

I agree with Tsar to stay away from the faces. I have a friend who is a really skilled tattoo artist and I've seen him do some great faces so it CAN be done, but he charges a premium and I've seen so many faces that were badly done. Especially ones with smiles showing teeth! Teeth seem to be really hard to do for some reason. Saw one at the State Fair recently that looked like some sort of zombie... I don't think that was the intended effect.
