I LOVED the tattoos people shared on Facebook and hope to get a big collection here.
As for my LH, most of his ashes went into an elm tree we planted in our front yard at our new house. I won't attach the picture here because folks might think I THINK it's a picture of a tattoo but I'll post it somewhere else and then link it! (It's just a little sapling... a case where a picture tells way less than 1000 words!).
I want to get a tattoo on April 28th (4/28) because 428 was a series of numbers that my husband said followed him everywhere. I was thinking of getting the word love tattooed up the side of my wedding ring finger, but now I think I want something bigger. I am debating on the front of my shoulder, just by the collarbone (kind of where your bra strap hits at the top of your shoulder) or on my foot. I have a little while to decide, but want to start working on it.
Finally broke down and bought a decent camera. I know I have talked about them, here they are.
Now if I were only as smart as the camera!
I always wanted a tattoo of my hubby's and kids' names all intertwined together somehow, but I could never find the right time or the right place or the right picture in my head of what I wanted. About 2 months after his accident, I went ahead and got it done. He loved music, he could play just about anything if he had the time to figure it out. He wrote many beautiful songs and so I have the luxury of listening to his voice whenever I want to. My tattoo is on my heart; it is a broken and bruised heart shaded in red, with music notes flowing out of the big open crack. Our 3 kids names are in each of the music notes. Over the top is a line from a little poem he wrote me about 6 or 7 years ago: I see you forever. Love, Mark. It is his handwriting. In the heart is our wedding date.
everything about it is beautiful, from the idea, to the placement, to the precious husband hand writing!!! **love love*** I got my tattoo last week, I will post a pic this week!
Smit, what a beautiful memorial to Craig!
