There are many tattoo enthusiasts today who strive to find a design that has a strong personal significance to them as an individual and differing styles and imagery appeal to different people. However, perhaps among the most personal body art designs today are those for memorial tattoos which are created in memory of a deceased loved one such as a partner, child, sibling or parent. These can be depicted in a variety of ways and some designs are more obvious in their symbolism than others but most will include a potent image relating to the departed as well as letters or numerals with their name or significant dates inked on the chosen skin surface.
If you want to pay homage to the memory of cherished loved one then you may want to express your eternal love for a deceased friend, lover or child with one of the many designs available for memorial tattoos. While many of these incorporate a banner, often within a heart and inked with the deceased’s name, initials or dates and accompanied by a floral image like the rose or lily, there are many differing ways these can be represented. There are some beautiful designs of this kind featuring angels in one form or another, from baby-faced cherubs – a poignant but very relevant choice for those mourning a child – to guardian angels inked on the skin to remind the wearer that the departed is still looking over them.
