Geoffrey, my daughter wants to this also. Check out the forum on tattoos here. Other people have done it also. Good luck and post a picture.
Here's a link to that earlier discussion, Geoffrey: Tattoo Forum Discussion
Jerry that is beautiful, and what a way to honor her.
Beautiful tattoo Jerry.
I know a friend who had her husband's ashes mixed with the ink too - Did you get it done yet?
I get my memorial tat on the 31st! My tattoo artist is going to mix some of Chit's ashes in mine too,.... so I don't think that's weird! lol.
i cannot wait until you post a pic and share it with us!
Hi Geoff! Alhtough I don' agee with tatting, I do think what you are doing is a lovely memorium and tribute to your love for her. I think that adding the ashes to the mix is beautiful. It touched me so deeply. Don't let anyone talk you out of doing what your heart tells you to do. In fact, If I weren't a Minister the thought is so beautiful I think I would reach out an do i myself. NOW! that is love. I keep trying to come up with more tthan my wall of honor for my husband. Although,
I have a gift that allows me to know when he is here and "talk" to him. Not as much as I would like. But there are always signs she is wih you. It is up to you to learn the signs Before my Dee died we decided he woul comunicate electrically. He said I'll see you on the screen. Every night at 2:58 a the tv will go off and on until I say Hi Dee. Then I can feel him.
Funny is I forgot about this and bought anoher tv and it does the same thing until I read it in my diary. The tv. It was worth it. If I am in the living room or bedroom it hppens where ever I am that evvening. there is always a way.
With the Love and Light of God,
I have a memorial tattoo for my husband, it's the first and only tattoo I have. I sketched what I had in mind, and then the artist improved upon it :). My husband was buried rather than cremated, so no ashes to mix in with the ink. But, I'm having the tattoo image etched into his headstone. I consider it an alternative to the linked wedding rings on many headstones. Just a thought for those in the same situation.
