Memorial Tattoos

Memorial tattoos are a great way to celebrate the life of a loved one that has passed. It could be for a parent, a sibling, a child, a friend, someone you admire or even a pet.

Memorial tattoos are and can be a way for someone to grieve in a healthy, creative way. It’s a semblance of permanence, allowing you to keep a memory with you forever. It’s a way for someone to keep a part of the loved one as a part of themself. Through the tattoo, you can continually bond with with the one you got the tattoo for, even though they are no longer there. Psychologically speaking, a memorial tattoo can be a very good thing. Although they are gone, they are still with you wherever you go.

There are many types of memorial tattoos people get. From as simple as a name to as elaborate as a photo-realistic portrait.
