There is a new service that lets people have their tattoos cut from their skin and then beautifully-framed for loved ones after they die. The skin art recovery service that is called “Save My Ink” is run by the National Association for the Preservation of Skin Art (NAPSA). The organization providing this service calls itself “a nonprofit membership association of like-minded tattoo artists and enthusiasts.” NAPSA has developed a method for preserving tattoo art that only exists for members that paid an initial joining fee and an annual membership fee. People that are registered can complete online forms that confirm that they want the service and then designate a beneficiary to make sure the procedure is performed.
