If you follow Drew Barrymore on Instagram, then you know that she recently spent some time in a tattoo artist’s chair getting some new ink.

What does Drew Barrymore’s Olive & Frankie tattoo mean? It’s a beautifully simple tribute to her daughters’ names. According to the Daily Mail, Barrymore and her husband Will Kopelman became parents back in 2012 when their first daughter, Olive, was born, and then had their second daughter, Frankie, in 2014.

But even though Barrymore has taken a break from acting, she is still quite a busy mama. In addition to raising her girls, Barrymore also runs a successful film production company, Flower Films, and a makeup and eyewear line, Flower. She even has her own brand of wine, called, uh, Barrymore Wines.

But one thing she is sure of? How much she has changed now that she’s a mother:
So, so true.
