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!).
My husband passed away October 2011. I ordered a cremation pendant also the Heres my Heart one. When the ashes came to my house in that plastic box I had another urn I got for him with eagles and flag on it. when I took out the plastic bag that held the ashes I seen ashes in the compartment so I put them in a vial and going to put them in the necklace. He will be buried at the National Cemetary on November 11 so fitting for a Veteran. I was going to get a tatoo but he never liked them however we have our initals on his other from wayyy back when we were teenagers.
But I think the pendants are cool cant wait till mine comes in.
This is beautiful- My suggestion is have someone else do it for you . My best friend did the memorial necklaces for myself, my MIL and SIL- Beautiful :)
This past spring, I got my first tattoo. I have always contemplated getting a tattoo, but I always said that I wouldn't get one until it was something that was very very important to me. My tattoo is a surf fishing rod wrapped around my ankle, and has a Canadian maple leaf hooked to it. Kevin was Canadian, and he discovered a LOVE of surf fishing off of Assateague Island in Maryland when we were married. It was something we loved to do together.
I bought this locket in silver and it has two compartments in it ... hair and a rose petal from his wreath in one side, and ashes in the other. This company was wonderful and I have never ever had such empathy via customer service. I love the locket and always wear it when travelling. Here's the link:
What I really think is good about this locket is that no one would ever guess that it is for ashes ...
Boo, very modern, kind of like the one that Dan wears.... and I love his blog post about putting it together. Warning: loaded with innuendo.
