Tattoos can be a Keepsake After Death

TatAfter a discussion of possible keepsakes after a loved one's death, a group of funeral directors came up with the idea to remove and preserve tattoos of the deceased. Their belief was that if the owner of the tattoo had great affection for the ink, then a family member would also like to cherish it as a piece of artwork.

The company Save My Ink provider recommends having them remove the tattoo within 48 hours of the person's death, and then they place the tattoo onto a frame behind a piece of UV protective glass. They have yet to reveal their full process to preserve the tattooed skin.
