Death is something that can never be predicted with exact accuracy. Nor can it be prevented. But when it happens we want to hold tightly onto the memory of the one we have just lost. We think one of the more interesting ways to retain that special relationship is the memorial tattoo. While not totally different from ordinary tattoos in appearance, these memorial tattoos are designed to honor the deceased.
Memorial tattoos are inked by professional tattoo artists. The image can be a symbol, a special quote or phrase or a name.
Tattoos are designed design and then applied according to health code standards, so be sure that your artist is certified in the county where you live. It will also be important for you to learn how to care for your tattoo to avoid infections and to ensure that it lasts as long as desired.
