    Did they have particular interests? Ie. cars, sewing, a particular flower. Could you incorporate that into it somehow?

    If I were to get something in your situation, I would get a two kind of matching tattoos ie. a motor on one shoulder blade with your dad's name and a sewing machine on the other with your mum's name... iykwim?

    Like above poster said something that reminds you of them.
    Or if their passing was due to cancer/health issue then something that signifies that like a ribbon etc.

    My Mum has passed away and I want to get something small also. My mother, father, son and partner are/were all Aries so I think I will get the Aries symbol

    This may be a bit of a stretch in your Dad's case, but do you have any cards or letters that were written to you from them.

    I've seen tattoos before where the tattooist has copied the "love Mum/love Dad" from a card (in the parent's writing) and tattooed that on people who have lost them. IYKWIM.

    I got a memorial tattoo for the babies I have lost, I looked into birth month symbols and picked out the flowers of their birth months and had them put into eternal sunshine/breeze. It is still my favourite tattoo.
