Kim Mordue lost her son to a drug overdose and decided to get a tattoo to help her remember him. She didn’t get any normal tattoo, though: Kim Mordue mixed her son's ashes in with the ink in her tattoo.
I think this is an excellent idea to help preserve the memory of a loved one. Kim Mordue’s tattoo consists of a cabala tree, an angel releasing a butterfly, and a poem for her son. Her husband, who owns a tattoo parlor, did the tattoo, keeping the whole thing a family affair.
